Samsung will continue to use Android and Windows Mobile, but analysts predict that the use of Windows Mobile in Samsung phones will drop significantly next year, and become just a minority by 2012. If […]
11/10/2009, Samsung’s first Windows Mobile powered handset to hit Japan would be the Softbank X01SC, where it will be running on Windows Mobile 6.5 (meh). Looking more like a BlackBerry than anything else, you can expect the usual including a full QWERTY keyboard, a Qualcomm MSM7225 processor, a 2.4” display at QVGA resolution, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, all crammed into a relatively compact and light body that tips the scales at […]

Either someone make a funny mistake, or this is really big news (we’re vouching for the “mistake”).

09/19/2009, Nobody is fond of Apple’s AppStore kill switch, where they can kill an app if they decide that it doesn’t conform to their terms and services. The worst part is that they don’t do refunds either. That being said, it’s not too hard to understand that they’re just trying to protect themselves. It seems that the Windows Marketplace also has these safeguards in place. The slight difference in this case […]

09/17/2009, The HTC Leo looks set to be a winner, taking the same path that Apple did with its iPhone by offering multitouch capability. This Windows Mobile-powered handset will definitely breathe new life into that platform, and the 4.2″ 800×480 WVGA display is more than ready to get all those itchy fingers dancing all over the display. When do you think people will get sick and tired of gestures such as […]
