09/02/2009, Samsung has finally acknowledged its VVIP handset in South Korea, also known as the SCH-W910. It will come draped in gold and black plaid designs, boasting a 2.6″ WQVGA AMOLED display internally, while the outside is equipped with a plain old 1.5″ OLED display. The menu structure is pretty simple, coming in a 2×3 format, while other specifications include a 2-megapixel camera, HSDPA connectivity, Bluetooth support, GPS navigation, a microSD […]
09/02/2009, Only in the UK, Italy, Germany and France, of course. Nokia’s upcoming N900 smartphone will be the spiritual successor to the Nokia Internet Tablet, and is currently going for £500 thereabouts. Folks in the UK can check out this link if they’re interested – as for the rest of the world, you’ll just have to wait with bated breath for it to arrive in your region.
09/01/2009, Microsoft has officially announced that the first wave of Windows Mobile 6.5 will arrive on October 6. Here’s how Microsoft puts it: “will deliver new customer experiences through an improved, easy-to-use user interface, better browsing capabilities and access to valuable services”. Read our Windows Mobile 6.5 Review, but basically, Microsoft brought Windows Mobile back to a place where the user interface is “OK” for touch phones (6.1 is terrible). WM 6.5 also […]
09/01/2009, I use Facebook on my Curve 8900 everyday and I am really looking forward to seeing improvements. Those who run on OS 5.0 simply want the damn thing to work, while others (like me) are anxiously waiting for a more functional and less sluggish version of the application. For now, there’s not much more to go on except that “it’s coming soon”, so stay tuned!
09/01/2009, The information seems to come from the Verizon database: there’s a phone named Desire from HTC. As you can see, there’s the word GOOGL on the same line, suggesting that it might be an Android phone that’s coming to Verizon. So far, the reaction from the public is quite positive…
09/01/2009, AT&T has announced that Windows Mobile phones would get free WiFi from its hotspots starting from September 14th. iPhone and Blackberry devices have enjoyed the free WiFi for some time, and we wonder if this move is aimed at reducing the stress on AT&T’s network. However, having a Windows Mobile phone is not sufficient: the AT&T customer must also subscribe to specific wireless data plans. Read the fine prints. AT&T […]
09/01/2009, The CDMA version of the HTC Hero, also known as the hero200 just received approval from the FCC several days ago. The HTC hero200 looks a whole lot more different compared to the Hero, and we do know that it will be powered by a 528MHz Qualcomm processor, accompanied by 288MB RAM, 512MB of ROM, a 5-megapixel camera with auto focus capability. No idea on pricing though.
09/01/2009, The Samsung Corby, also known as the S3650, is one handset that was specially created to cater to young folks who prefer to stay in touch with one another the digital way instead of taking the trouble to meet up over a cup of coffee and some cake without having to rush off for another appointment shortly thereafter. The Corby boasts full compatibility with a slew of social networks including […]
09/01/2009, Slap Hello Kitty on anything and it will probably sell like hot cakes, and the latest device to fall ‘victim’ under the Hello Kitty spell would be the Sony Ericsson W395. Already out in Hong Kong, the Hello Kitty W395 shares similar specifications, dot for dot, with the standard W395, although it will probably turn Hello Kitty fans’ knees to mush each time they look at it. It’ll go for […]
09/01/2009, Very rarely do the qualities cheap and good go together, but it seems as though the T106i-WIFI fits the bill perfectly. This Wi-Fi enabled handset will feature Bluetooth connectivity, Java support, TV, touchscreen navigation and dual digital cameras on the front and back, all for a mere $156.99 a pop. No idea why the word Google was printed on the back in big and bold letters – perhaps to throw […]
08/31/2009, While we were looking at the Nokia N900 video ad, the FCC has approved the Nokia Alvin, a mysterious handset represented by the silhouette above. Here’s what’s known about Alvin: 32MB of internal storage WCDMA 900/1900/2100Mhz Bluetooth WiFi BL-5J batteries With that much storage, it has to be a multimedia phone of some sort. And given how long it is, it might have a big, wide, display… we’re just guessing.
08/31/2009, Sprint users will finally have a chance to get their hands on one of the best Windows Mobile phone from HTC: the Touch Pro 2. HTC has improved upon its TouchFlo user interface to hide as much of Windows Mobile 6.1 as possible so that users can really enjoy the 3.6″ WVGA (800×480) display. The Touch Pro 2 connects via an EVDO-Rev A connection that can be supplemented by WiFi […]
08/31/2009, You saw it coming and you’ve seen the Dell mini 3 specifications already, but that’s the first time that we see a good front facing picture of the Dell Mini 3 next to an iPhone. We can’t say that Dell did a good job on maximizing the screen size or reducing the bezel thickness, and from what we can tell, the designers did not take the best attributes of the iPhone […]
08/31/2009, Nokia has released a video ad for the Nokia N900 tablet (it’s really a handset, but Nokia insists on calling it a tablet). The video shows how the Maemo user interface works and right now, it looks pretty cool. Of course that’s the point of creating an ad! Now, we will have to see if the device can live up to the hype. From what we can tell, Nokia is […]
