11/11/2009, Thanks to the Bluetooth SIG, we know that Nokia is coming up with a CDMA version of the Nokia 6316 slide. The phone, which features CDMA 1xRTT EVDO will be heading towards China Telecom (in China, of course). Technical details of this entry-level phone aren’t available just yet, but we do know that Bluetooth 2.1 will be part of it. Aside from China, the phone should also be hitting Africa […]
11/10/2009, Sprint will be launching the Palm Pixi in 5 days’ time, and someone managed to catch an image of the handset running webOS 1.3.1 alongside what is deemed to be a rather frisky user interface. While the video failed to show off the new features that will be making its way to 1.3.1, it is still interesting to know that 1.3.1 is very real and ready to roll.
11/10/2009, This AVerTV HD DVR PCI 1x card can record shows from a set top box (cable or satellite) to your PC via two HDMI inputs. It produces H.264 content for mobile devices: the output resolution is only 320×240, which is smaller than most modern smartphone displays (why call it “HD” then?!). It will also record anything (not DRM protected) that connects via HDMI (computers, game consoles, DVD). If you wonder, the […]
11/10/2009, Nokia is starting to promote its N900 internet tablet (we call it a smartphone) with this viral video. It’s 2mn36 long and the end is pretty interesting. If you have not seen it yet, check out our complete review of the Nokia N900.
11/10/2009, Softbank, the No.3 wireless carrier in Japan did reveal today that the company is looking to unveil its first Android-powered smartphone in spring sometime next year, following similar launches by NTT DoCoMo and Verizon Wireless. Softbank did not reveal the hardware manufacturer behind this Android-powered handset (although we think HTC would be a decent option), we do know it will come with an OLED display.
11/10/2009, Garmin has let the cat out of the bag, where they aim to further expand their portfolio to carry an Android-smartphone. There is still no official confirmation on when the Android-powered device will be making a bow apart from a date that hails from 2010. Since it has the Garmin name emblazoned on the future release, we can be pretty sure the navigational functions within work just as planned in […]
11/10/2009, What makes NTT DoCoMo’s F-04B cellphone different from the rest would be its separable, two-module body which makes it the first in the world to sport such a form factor. Apart from that novelty, you will find that the F-04B is well equipped with a 12.1-megapixel camera and a microSDHC memory card slot among others. Whenever the display section of the handset is separated from the keyboard section, both halves […]
11/10/2009, Open up your wallet and see the number of notes within – while most of us can just think about preserving and growing that amount, many others would prefer to indulge in their whims and fancies when the going is good. Emmanuel James thinks otherwise though as this Sierra Leonean student from the Makeni Polytechnic Institution came up with a device that juices up cellphones without the need for electricity. […]
11/10/2009, T-Mobile will be offering the simple, yet pretty, looking 3711 clamshell from Nokia. It’s no iPhone killer in terms of features, sporting a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, FM radio, microSD card expansion and a QVGA display. The inclusion of GPS in this phone does help boost its stock a bit. If you opt for an Even More contract, you’ll be able to pick it up for $70, however if you’re gunning […]
11/10/2009, What you see here is possibly the HTC Dragon/Passion with its display turned on, giving us a glance of what Android holds for it in the future, although it does resemble a HTC Sense UI-clock/weather widget instead. Some of the features we know of include a 5-megapixel camera and Android 2.0 among others. Only time will tell in the final release.
11/10/2009, The latest Hello Kitty handset to hit Japan would be based on Softbank’s new ‘The Premium5′ handset from Sharp, where folks who are familiar with the naming convention there would better know it as the 942SH. This hot ticket item is currently one of the most wanted handsets in that part of the world, and Softbank just can’t keep up with the demand, instead asking their customers to settle for […]
11/10/2009, Love hanging out on eBay every waking moment, but can’t do so because you just do not have the chance to sit in front of your computer all day long? The eBay Mobile app for BlackBerry will be out by the end of November, so hopefully the developers won’t renege on their word. Upon logging in, the ‘My eBay’ screen will give you access to items that you are currently […]
11/10/2009, We know that the Motorola Droid will be called the Milestone in Germany, and now it looks like the folks over in Canada will have to get used to that name too. Telus has announced that it has got an exclusive with the Motorola Milestone and it should be available at the start of 2010. In case you’ve forgotten, the Milestone will have the same features as the Droid, such […]
11/10/2009, Many people have tried to make mobile phone watches the next big thing, but aside from James Bond, it seems that nobody can make these things seem cool enough to be adopted by everybody. Whatever the problems mobile phone watches face, it seems that some folks are determined to make it work, and the innovatively named “Mobile Phone Watch” is just what it calls itself. The 1.3-inch display isn’t going […]
