09/15/2009, This leak from T-Mobile suggests that pre-orders will start on October 19th. T-Mobile seems to require a data plan for this smartphone. If you have missed the announcement, we covered it live, followed by a hands-on and a quick Q&A and more photos.
09/15/2009, In a page titled “put your ears in control”, Sony Ericsson teases us with an upcoming September 21 Announcement. The company claims that it will change the way we listen to music forever. Keep an eye out for leaks! Oh and it’s 9/21 2am pacific time.
09/15/2009, The Nokia CLIPit concept cellphone, should it be successfully engineered, would definitely be a highly desirable device. Why do we say so? Well, it has future forward features including using your fingerprint to unlock the handset, a touchpad-dot matrix display, a hands-free clip-on design (be careful of pickpockets in crowded areas though), and a combination of Philips Lumalive and conceptual “smart fabrics” that are able to merge, resulting in a […]
09/14/2009, Tactility’s the name of this Toshiba concept phone which probably has its roots in Mortal Kombat’s naming convention, where it will target the blind using a simple 3D Braille face, making it a snap to use. This concept plays close attention to the finer details that would make it into any real world phone, such as the small enclave at the bottom area that allows you to tie a loop […]
09/14/2009, The Qiji Smartbook U1000 will roll out later this month, and one might think this is a netbook of sorts at first glance but will be surprised to learn that it is a Windows Mobile-powered handset instead, boasting a generous 5″ 480 x 800 resolution display that makes it a snap to go online with thanks to Wi-Fi connectivity, although the missing 3G support is extremely glaring. Powered by a […]
09/14/2009, Just how powerful are AMD’s next generation GPUs? Strong enough to run Crysis-level graphics on the iPhone – as demonstrated by AMD using their next-gen platform’s 2.5 teraFLOPS of floating-point power and DirectX 11 abilities. Does this signal the death knell for dedicated portable consoles like the Sony PSP or Nintendo DSi, or could it just prove to be the catalyst that helps such dedicated machines boast even superior graphics […]
09/14/2009, The Gaia Phone concept was devised to become your Identity, strange as it may sound. It will definitely need a whole lot of memory, since the Gaia supports a virtual wall full of pictures of your contacts in the phonebook, and depending on how close you are (or far), it will brighten or fade out their photo. No idea on the metrics used to calculate such relationships – perhaps through […]
09/14/2009, If you have a Jailbroken device, upgrading your iPhone or iPod Touch to OS 3.1 will make you lose the jailbreak. The iPhone DevTeam is working on an easy solution to help you out. However, we’ve spotted an iPhone 3.1 jailbreak tutorial that might help you out. Try at your own risk… This tutorial will be using redsn0w version 0.8. There is no redsn0w 3.1 out yet, but this worked […]
09/14/2009, Opera has started promoting Opera Mini 5 with a teaser on their website. There is not much information about what’s new, but we hope that it can rival the best browsers out there. The current version is 4.2.
09/14/2009, Check out leaked images of the upcoming HTC Leo smartphone, where it is larger than the recently revealed HTC Touch Pro2 and the Touch HD, thanks to its (relatively) gargantuan 4.3″ touchscreen display, where this smartphone will be powered by Windows Mobile 6.5 and run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor. Best to make sure you carry your hanky with you always to wipe off the fingerprints of jealous mates […]
09/14/2009, Do you remember spending countless hours on your Gameboy and the Gameboy Color, collecting Pokemon? Well, you can always relive those times with the Gameboy Color emulator for the BlackBerry platform, where it is better known as “MeBoy”. While it is still relatively glitchy at the moment, we’re sure future iterations will weed those problems out if the team behind this keeps on working on it. Each download (which is […]
09/14/2009, Those living in the UK might soon be able to contact emergency services using nothing but text messages, if ongoing trials prove to be successful. The service will target those who are unable to make normal voice calls to 999 due to a disability, where a voice relay assistant will speak the text message to the emergency service while texting back their reply. We do hope to see this effort […]
09/14/2009, LG has recently released its first Android-powered handset – the GW620 that comes in a slider form factor, revealing a QWERTY keyboard within. Dubbed the Etna during its spyshot/leaked days, this model comes with a 3″ touchscreen display alongside a 5-megapixel camera. No idea on whether the LG GW620 will be the first step towards a total Android platform for LG, or will they continue to maintain a balance between […]
09/14/2009, Fashion phones are few and between, but just like the real luxury goods, fakes abound – with the Cartier phone being the latest to be paraded. It doesn’t look half bad though, but it is rather huge at 13.7cm long, and the specifications definitely won’t blow you out of the water with a 2″ display, a built-in digital camera of unknown megapixel count, an integrated FM radio and Bluetooth connectivity.
