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.

10/28/2009, Verizon Wireless has just made it known to all and sundry that it will be offering the Motorola DROID from November 6th onwards, where you will have to shell out $199 after a $100 mail-in rebate, making it the first of potentially many Android-poweerd smartphones from Verizon. The DROID has a very strong possibility of being a blockbuster hit, where it comes with a lip-smacking 3.7″ display at 854 x […]
10/28/2009, Apple might ends its exclusive carrier agreement with AT&T in 2010, which would also mean the end of a speculated $450 carrier subsidy for the iPhone. Apparently, this scenario would likely happen when Apple works hand in hand with Verizon, where it might command a $300 carrier subsidy thereabouts although initial losses can be stemmed and made up for in volume with Verizon likely to move around 14 million iPhones […]
10/28/2009, The new LG Chocolate Touch looks set to be available from Verizon, where this model will come with a 3.2-megapixel camera alongside EV-DO Rev. 0 connectivity. Doesn’t seem to send too much shiver down our spines with anticipation, considering the handset does not seem to be up and running with EV-DO Rev. A alongside a design that seems to hail from the previous century. As for the operating system, it […]

10/28/2009, Those living in the UK, take note! T-Mobile will be offering a new Chrome-colored Nokia 5800 later this Sunday, where it will cost you nothing although you will need to fork out the dough required for the next two years’ worth of contract. Apart from that, mention must be made of its 1-year old Comes with Music subscription. Nothing too fancy here apart from its Chrome color…

10/28/2009, Here’s a leaked image of the upcoming HTC Droid Eris which won’t be as powerful as the Motorola Droid, although it will still be powered by a 528MHz Qualcomm chip and Android 1.5 running right out of the box. No idea on why Android 2.0 wasn’t included with this release, alongside the fact that the Droid Eris will be running on a slower processor and older OS. Perhaps it is […]
10/27/2009, Android 2.0 has just been announced officially via the Android developers blog and YouTube. There are a few important new features, the greatest of which in my opinion is the contact aggregation: Android 2.0 will consolidate your contact from multiple accounts (Exchange, Gmail…) and that effectively makes Android 2.0 a people-centric OS, rather than a Service-centric OS. I don’t yet know if this is as cool as the Palm Pre […]

10/27/2009, Check out this new Android cellphone which hails from OEM Foxconn. Despite not being attached with a name, it does look like the HTC Magic somewhat sans the special chin.
