LG Neon, First Acer-Branded Smartphone, Google Mobile Seach-By-Voice to Android, Nokia's Multi-Touch Phones?

Labels: , , , , ,

The ugly phone you see here is called the LG Neon. I don't know why LG chose the color scheme that they did, but i think they've lost their mind. Anyways, this phone comes with some decent features, including: a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, at least a 2MP camera, Bluetooth and FM radio. Engadget is hoping for 3G built-in. The LG Neon also has a 2.4 inch touchscreen and is said to be the LG KS360's upgrade device.

The first Acer-branded smartphone will be appearing at MWC 2009. But wait, it's not an entirely brand new phone. Engadget mentions that this is the Glofiish DX900 that was announced in mid-2008. The exact same phone, except for the writing under the screen that will say 'Acer' instead of 'Glofiish.' This Acer phone will have dual-SIM support, a 3MP camera and will run on WinMo 6.1. It kind of annoys me that smartphones are still being released using this OS. Hasn't anyone learned yet? This phone will also have a 2.8 inch touchscreen, just in case you still care. WinMo 6.5 better be improving on its responsiveness because WinMo 6.1's is just terrible.

I can sum this up in one quote, directly pulled from Lifehacker. "Google search-by-voice is coming to Android in the next update." Moving along.

"Talkative sources say that Nokia is increasing orders in March as it prepares to 'launch several 3G and 3.5G products with multi-touch and multimedia functions in 2009' -- Texas Instruments, Qualcomm [which is used in the Toshiba TG01], and Synaptics being the chief beneficiaries." This is just a rumour, but it may be true. It may be true because Nokia themselves have mentioned that the 5800 was just the first of "an onslaught" of touchscreen devices that are on the way. I can't wait for the Nokia N97 and i hope that it lives up to the hype.
