Windows Mobile 6.5, LG To Make 50 Windows Mobile Phones, Acer's 4 Smartphones, NVIDIA's Tegra 600

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Windows Mobile 6.5 looks like it will be surperior to 6.1 just like Windows 7 is to Vista. Apparently, Windows Mobile 6.5 (running on HTC Touch Diamond2) is much more responsive and the browser is faster. Everything seems to be "touched up, simplified, and polished." Although, the honeycomb menus are still quite unimpressive, there are a lot of good things going for Windows Mobile 6.5. I actually hope that WinMo 6.5 will be better because i've done a lot of WinMo 6.1 bashing. Come on Microsoft, you can do it! If you want to see a video of WinMo 6.5 in action just go to this link, via Gizmodo.

Since we're talking about Windows Mobile 6.5, i might as well tell you about LG. LG has now agreed to make 50 LG phones running Windows Mobile 6.5. Yes, fifty! I don't know how excited i am, but LG must be praying that WinMo 6.5 will run just how smoothly they say it will.

I was just talking about Windows Mobile 6.5, but it looks like we're going to have to backtrack because Acer is going old-school. All 4 of these smartphones will run on Windows Mobile 6.5 and i don't really know what the hell they are thinking. I'll go from left to right, starting with the X960. I've talked about the Acer X960 already, but i might as well briefly go through the specs. It has a 2.8-inch touchscreen display, 3.2MP camera, GPS and Bluetooth. The F900, which looks to be one of the better smartphones in the line-up, has a 3.8-inch touchscreen display, a 3MP camera with autofocus, GPS and, of course, Bluetooth. The M900 (the best out of these smartphones) also has a 3.8-inch touchscreen display but also comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 5MP camera (with autofocus and flashlight), GPS and Bluetooth. Last, and maybe, least is the DX900 which has a 2.8-inch touchscreen, a 3MP camera with autofocus, GPS and Bluetooth. Keep in mind (again) that they all run WinMo 6.1, have similar features and they all have microSD card slots.

So, Nvidia has just announced that they plan to use their Tegra 600 series chips to power $99 MID's (Mobile Internet Devices). MID's are squeezed into their own category, between smartphones and netbooks. These MIDs will "support 1080p HD video playback, which is the high end of what you'll find streaming online." Nvidia will use Windows CE along with Android on their cheap MID's. I don't see the point of this [MIDs], but Nvidia certainly does.

Does 1080p really matter on a screen that small? /facepalm
