LG's Android Phone By June; 2 More Later, Skype and Nokia, Android Apps Return Policy, Acer's 4 Newer Phones

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

LG recently announced that their first Android-running phone will be out by June. Another 2 Android phones will be released by the end of the year. There is no confirmed word yet, if it will be the LG KS360, but it could still be a possibility. LG should have made this switch sooner, since Windows Mobile 6.1 is full of fail. WinMo 6.5 should be a decent improvement though.

Skype has recently announced their partnership with Nokia. Skype will be implemented on Nokia's future "high-end smartphones, the N-series, and the N97, Nokia's flagship device that will go on sale in June." This would be good for me because Skype-to-Skype calls would still be free, which is amazing. Me and my girlfriend would be able to call each other all the time, even if she's on residence. Too bad the N97 is being delayed until June.

There will be a 24-hour return policy on Android apps that you buy, unlike Apple's app store. If you aren't satisfied, you will be able to return the app and, in the process, get your money back.

Acer's made a lot of buzz announcing that their will be 8 new smartphones from them this year, plus their 2 Android phones. The other 4 WinMo 6.1 phones are on an earlier blog post and the new 4 Acer smartphones are the: F1, C1, L1 and E1. Acer kept their mouth shut about most specifications and the prototypes at MWC were turned off. But, Engadget does know that the F1 (that is in the picture being compared to the iPhone) boasts a 5MP camera, but lacks the "Windows Mobile 6.5-required hardware Start button." For a gallery of the 4 Acer phones go here, via Engadget.
