More Samsung Acme i8910, Qualcomm's Snapdragon Coming To More Phones?, Sony NWZ-X1000, Kindle 2 Almost Here

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

The Samsung Acme i8910 is going to be an amazing phone, even a possible rival to the Nokia N97. It's not going to run on WinMo 6.1. It's not going to run on WinMo 6.5 (Yes, my WinMo guesses were wrong). And it also won't run on Android. Instead, it will be running on S60 5th Edition. The S60 5th Edition is the same OS that the Nokia N97 will have. Both the Acme and the N97 have their advantages over the other and we'll just have to see who wins when they go head-to-head. Talk about exciting stuff.

Do you remember the Toshiba TG01?. If you remember correctly, it will use Qualcomm's Snapdragon mobile device platform. There are rumours of HTC, Samsung and LG also wanting to use Snapdragon for some of their future phones. We may be seeing more beefed up WinMo phones, but we could also see beefed up Android phones. Snapdragon supports Windows Mobile and also the Android OS. So, imagine this: HTC + Android + Snapdragon + Google = T-Mobile G3? You never know. Tech is crazy nowadays.

Sony's new touchscreen Walkman NWZ-X1000 PMP has been rare to find. But, a French site (Le Journal du Geek) recently got their hands on it. This PMP has an extra-bright OLED screen, so that's always good. The UI is not entirely done, but its touchscreen has an "impressive response" that is "perhaps even better than the iPod Touch." That's an impressive feat, since we all know how good the iPod Touch is. The browser looks to be its weakest point, but overall, Le Journal du Geek says that it's part of their "top five."

Just in case you're anticipating the release of the Kindle 2, more news is on the way. The first Kindle was very successful and fans are awaiting the release of the next model. Amazon is having a press conference on Monday and the Kindle 2 will probably be mentioned. I don't know how much money you should save for it, but it should be around the same cost of the current Kindle.

Acme is just a horrible name, it's like a jewish family naming their son Adolf.
