Phones: HP's iPAQ Data Messenger, 3G Sidekick LX 2009, Samsung Memoir, DSTL1 Android Smartphone

Labels: , , , , , ,

HP is a brand mostly-known for their computers and their laptops, but it looks like they're going to be releasing another phone soon. The pre-orders, in the UK, are starting for this phone today. I don't think this phone will create that much buzz, due to it's WinMo 6.1 OS. With MWC 2009 around the corner, WinMo 6.5 should be on the way shortly. It looks like it's too little, too late for HP. Although, this is still a decent-looking phone, i have to give it that.

A new rumour has surfaced, regarding a new 3G Sidekick LX 2009 on the way. Some of the specs are listed on Gizmodo and i will list some of them. According to its 'Hardware' section it will have a 3.2 inch screen that will have an 854 x 480 resolution, a "thin design," a QWERTY keyboard (of course), a 3.2MP camera with autofocus and up to 8GB of memory via MicroSD. Some 'Social Networking Suite of Apps' this phone will have are: Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and YouTube Mobile Access. It looks like a good upgrade, even adding GPS and 3G to the mix. But, it's just a rumour, so i'll give you more information if it is officially announced.

The Samsung Memoir. The Memoir looks like it will be available, exclusively to T-Mobile, starting on February 25, 2009. This phone will be $300 USD with a 2-year contract, which is actually reasonable. This phone "features a full touchscreen with TouchWiz UI and [an] 8 mega pixel camera accompanied with a xenon flash." Looks like Samsung is going to try to chase Nokia with that top spot on the mobile list. But, the Nokia N97 will still prevail!

This awesome-looking phone will be running Android. This phone will have a "3-inch Sharp touchscreen." It is called the General Mobile DSTL1. The phone looks amazing and also has some decent features, like: 4GB internal memory and up to "8GB T-flash Card Support" and a 5MP auto-focus camera. the only thing this phone is missing is a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It still looks good to me though, but it could be a bit too thick. I also don't like candy-bar phones. The design of the phone is still amazing.

Basketball Coach Fired After 100-0 Win, Windows 7 Will Have Multiple Versions, Megan Fox as Tomb Raider?, Starcraft; A College Course?

So, i've temporarily fixed the comment problem that my friend, Yang, told me about. I've gone with the boring pop-out comment box window for now. That is, until i find a better solution because i don't really want to use the pop-out box for commenting.

Moving right along to good ol' game of basketball. And yes, you read that title right. A basketball coach has been fired after his girl's basketball team beat another team 100-0. He got fired because he did not apologize for this win. Yes, his team did completely dominate the other team, but it just showed a lack of sportsmanship and it set a bad example. Why would you even want to embarrass a team like that in the first place. Seriously? 100-0. At halftime, the score was already 59-0. You would think he would have told his team to give some mercy to the other team. But, that didn't happen. In another article i read a couple of days ago, the opposing coach mentioned that it was just a lay-up drill for the other team. This team just played full-court pressure all game, showing no mercy at all. I think it was right that they fired him because that's just really inconsiderate.

A couple of days ago, i posted a picture of Windows 7 possibly being in multiple versions (here) . Well, it looks like this pictures is, in fact, real. I think that this move on Microsoft isn't very smart because, first of all, it's confusing to the user. It's confusing to the user because you're not going to know exactly which versions has what capabilities. Although, i'd just go for the Ultimate version because it probably has the most features, though i could be wrong. I was hoping that these multiple Windows 7 versions wouldn't be real, but it looks like they are. Although, Windows 7 will be a major step-up from their last OS (Windows Vista), which was terrible. Windows 7 is running great as a beta and will only get better when the final release comes out.

About a week ago, i talked about the possibility of Megan Fox playing Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider movie. Well, it looks like that was just a rumour that someone started. Fox's spokesperson crushed our dreams and said that Megan Fox is "not involved in the movie at all." I guess Lara Croft will still be Angelina Jolie, who is still gorgeous, so i guess it will be okay.

What you are about to read is all real and i'm not making this up. "Students in UC - Berkeley can take up StarCraft studies for college credits." This is amazing and makes me want to go to this college, where ever it is. Under the 'Course Description' it says, "The course will go in-depth in the theory of how war is conducted within the confines of the game Starcraft." I wonder if you'll get to brainstorm tips about defeating other races and certain strategies that you can use in online play. This is amazing and is making me so excited for the next Starcraft game to come out. It'll be 'off-the-hizzle.'
