HTC Touch Cruise, New Blackberry Storm OS, Palm Announcing Something at MWC 2009, Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds Ad

Labels: , , , , , ,

I've talked about the HTC Touch Cruise before, but under the codename 'HTC Iolite.' (here). The HTC Touch Cruise will have a geotagging application pre-installed, called Footprints. Aside from the geotagging, the article has a full spec sheet of the phone. The HTC Touch Cruise, which runs on the choppy WinMo 6.1, is packed with: a 2.8 inch TFT (TouchFLO technology) LCD touchscreen, a 3.2MP camera, Bluetooth and will weigh 103 grams. It's your usual HTC phone, since you don't get anything too overwhelming with it. It's a pretty nice looking phone, but the HTC Touch HD is just godly compared to this. All HTC needs to do is drop the (also godly) price of the HTC Touch HD and then i'll be happy.

The fairly disappointing Blackberry Storm is looking to pick up the slack of their OS. There is "a new beta OS for the Storm [that] has make its way into the wild." The OS contains an on-screen QWERTY keyboard, even in portrait mode. This is an upgrade compared to the old OS, which makes you flip the phone to type in QWERTY keyboard mode. There were a lot of complaints on the stability of the Storm's OS, but they appear to be fixing that. Users using the new beta OS are reporting that there is an increase in overall stability and some visual enhancements. If only they had this OS at launch date, the phone may have had more shock value. Maybe next time RIM (Research in Motion). I also found out something new about RIM (the company that makes the Blackberry) today. They are a Canadian company! How cool is that? Anyways, moving along.

Palm is going to be announcing something secret at this year's MWC, which is under a month away. Engadget is guessing that it will be the "official unveiling of the 3G GSM version of the Pre." Well, whatever it is, i will have that for you as soon as it is announced. Just like CES, i will try to look for live streaming on MWC. I'm crossing my fingers for that.

Do you remember Lenovo's ThinkPad W700ds? The giant laptop with 2-screens. Well, just incase you don't remember, the picture on the left should refresh your memory. There is a new ad that has surfaced recently about the W700ds. No one is sure where the [fairly funny] ad came from, but it 'probably' didn't come from Lenovo. Anyways, here's the video, via Youtube.

I agree, although the HTC Touch HD still looks better.
The only problem with the HTC Touch HD is it's price.
