Motorola Touch ZINE HD, Next Mortal Kombat, Flickr Gets Video, LG Viewty II

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

My dreams were shattered today. It turns out that the Motorola touchscreen phone i talked about a couple of weeks ago is a fake. It was rumoured to be called the Motorola Touch ZINE HD. It looks like it was a cross between the Motorola ZN5 and Motorola E8. Good photoshopping skills, bastards. The design was mighty gorgeous though and it looks like this won't be Motorola's Android device. It'll be something more crappy. It was too good to be true, eh Motorola?

Even though Midway is on the brink of filing for bankruptcy, the head honchos over there are deciding that they might as well release another Mortal Kombat game. This is just about the dumbest thing i've ever heard. Ed Boon, the maker of Mortal Kombat will be "picking up $900,000 for the completion and sales of Mortal Kombat vs DC. He's also getting $105,000 in bonuses for the franchise itself, coming from sales of older titles and other things like movies." Midway needs to just die already. I think it's clear to see who won in the fighting genre between Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat.

If you use Flickr, it could be your lucky day. They have just announced that everyone using Flickr will get video capabilities. So, you'll be able to upload whatever videos you want to share with other users. But, if you have the money for it, you can upgrade your account to "Pro" to include uploading HD quality movies. To be a pro member on Flickr, it's $25 USD / year. It's not an overwhelming price, but some people just choose not to pay and i would be in that category. This video service is just starting out so maybe one day you'll get to upload HD video for free.

Could CeBIT be the place where LG unveils the LG Viewty II? It certainly could be. With this picture taken from CeBIT, it could very well be the Viewty II. The LG GC900 (possibly the Viewty II) has a 3-inch touchscreen, an 8MP camera with autofocus and xenon flash, geotagging, DivX support, up to 32GB of memory, WiFi, aGPS and will even have slow motion video capabilities. The GC900 will also have the 3D S-Class UI that the LG Arena has. Unfortunately as of right now, there are no pictures of the phone and the price and availability are also unknown.

I guess i should end off mentioning that i have my first Physics test tomorrow, so i won't be blogging much tonight. This could be my only post of the night. I blogged twice during lunch already, so i guess 3 blog posts in one day is good enough. Even though with CeBIT under away, there's so much to blog about =(. Maybe i will tonight while i watch American Idol with my girlfriend. Anyways, wish me luck because i'm going to need a ton of it. Oh, and prayer would be good too. I have about 7 things starred on my Google Reader at the moment, so i could be blogging a ton tomorrow, we'll see. I am going to be busy tomorrow though as i'm planning to travel the world.

That new viewety better have capacitive touch screen. Resistive touch screens are a bitch. Almost forgot. LMFAO @ THE FAKE MOTO PHONE.

LMAO @ resistive touchscreens. But how can you laugh at the Motorola phone, that shit had Motorola set for life. Too bad they couldn't even make it on their own.

moto is going down, just a matter of time. Back when they were on top with the razrs, they should've kept on innovating, but instead they just kept releasing the same old razr and rokr over and over again,each crappier than the next. My calculator has a bigger screen than a rokr.
