10/28/2009, A video of the Blackberry Tour 2 (now with WIFI and a trackpad). The current codename for this product is “essex”, and it might be called BlackBerry Tour 2, or something else, we just don’t know. Besides from the addition of WIFI and the trackpad (many customers complain that the trackball gets eventually tuck with dust) there’s apparently nothing new, so we’ll call this a minor update.

10/23/2009, Our friends at BGR managed to snag a Motorola Droid for themselves, and after gorging silly on the Android-powered smartphone, here’s what they say about it. The Motorola CLIQ was a pretty big disappointment for me personally, but oh man does the Droid make up for it. Sure, there’s a little hype sprinkled in because this is the first Android 2.0 device I’ve had the pleasure of using, but once […]
10/22/2009, As Motorola prepares to announce the Droid, the device’s staging page (non-public URL) has leaked it seems. If you have not followed the Moto Droid drama unfold, this is a high-end phone from Motorola that has a large touch display and a QWERTY keyboard. It runs on Android 2.0 and comes with the following specifications (highlights only): 3.7″ 16:9 WVGA Display (854×480 pixels) 2.4×4.6×0.5″, 169g HTML5-compatible browser, Flash10 support coming […]
10/22/2009, Android devices are coming in thick and fast, and Verizon Wireless looks set to be the latest beneficiary as a stealthy tech ninja managed to snag an image of a Verizon-branded HTC Desire. Word from said ninja included the device running at super speed, sporting the Sense user interface as well as being rather similar in size compared to the HTC Hero from Sprint.
10/22/2009, Here is yet another Android-powered phone known as the Sciphone N19, where it will retail for $150 a pop while offering a Samsung S3C2448 400MHz processor, a 2.8″ touchscreen display at 320 x 240 resolution, 128MB ROM and an equal amount of RAM, a microSD memory card slot, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a 2-megapixel camera and compatibility with GSM 900/1800 MHz bands. Sounds pretty average in our books, and it […]
10/22/2009, Android-powered smartphones look set to rule the roost or at least post a decent challenge to the iPhone sometime next year as more and more manufacturers unveil phones that support that operating system. Another Android-powered handset would be the Sciphone N21 which comes with dual SIM support, running on a Marvell PXA 310 624MHz processor, a 3″ 240 x 400 resolution touchscreen display, 128MB RAM, 256MB ROM, a microSD memory […]
10/21/2009, It’s official, the Blackberry Bold 9700 is coming to T-Mobile and AT&T. Among the improvements, the phone is smaller, lighter, with a better camera (3.2 Megapixel) and it will be faster (624Mhz). The trackball is now gone, as many users complained that it gets stuck in presence of dirt. When we tested the Blackberry pad in recent models, it worked fine. The good news for T-Mobile users is that UMA […]
10/21/2009, Motorola’s latest handset is the Devour, and judging by its name, we do have high hopes of it doing so to the competition in order to give the iPhone a run for its money. The Motorola Devour has already made its journey through the Wi-Fi Alliance, and it still remains to be seen whether this will be an Android-powered device or not.
10/20/2009, Remember those slider handsets that are able to end your calls simply by sliding them back into place? The Palm Pre surprisingly doesn’t do that – at least not until the most recent patch was released. This patch will also enable features on the Palm Pre including forwarded text messages, LED light for alerts and inclusion of pages to the app launcher among others.
10/19/2009, There’s a flurry of Android phones out there and not so long ago but the HTC Hero is different not only because it has a better physical design, but also because it has HTC Sense, a proprietary user interface extension that only HTC-branded phones have (unlike the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G, which is a white label phone). Yet, you can expect all the advantages that come with an Android phone: very […]
10/16/2009, Android 2.0 will bring a number of improvements that includes the native support of Microsoft Exchange (contacts are often not synchronized today), the Maps application will display more data, but still does not have pinch and zoom. The web browser is said to be almost as fast as the iPhone 3GS one. In the video department, the integration with YouTube has been improved, especially when it comes to video uploads, […]
10/12/2009, Folks living in the UK will be able to get their hands on the HTC HD2 from November 11th onwards, retailing for £469 (excluding VAT) – which is translated to roughly $740 thereabouts. Bear in mind that this will be an unlocked version of a potential “iPhone killer”, cramming in a 4.3″ touchscreen display alongside a 1GHz Snapdragon processor to make sure you don’t miss a beat even when working […]
10/07/2009, A Vietnamese site managed to get a hold of a GSM prototype of the Palm Pixi, which means it can be used in other carriers apart from Sprint in the US. The device looks identical from the outside, but it might experience a slash in internal storage space of just 4GB compared to the original 8GB in the US-bound model. Apart from that, the GPS navigation system and 2-megapixel camera […]
10/04/2009, Looks like Acer’s new range of Windows Mobile 6.5-powered smartphones will come in different names if you happen to live in the UK, where the Acer F1 will be knowns as the Acer neoTouch, while the Acer C1 will be called the Acer beTouch E100. As for the Acer E1 and Acer L1, they will be given new callsigns of the Acer beTouch E101 and Acer beTouch E200, respectively. Expect […]
