New Motorola Phone!!, Trimble Yuma UMPC, GM Is Almost Done, What is TealOS?

Labels: , , ,

Here we have what could be the biggest news of the whole week. A (possible) picture of what could be the next Motorola phone. It looks mighty similar to the iPhone, but don't be fooled because it looks more like the HTC Touch HD. Maybe that's why i love it, even though it upset me that the HTC Touch HD ran WinMo 6.1, which meant epic fail. This phone is not official, but it could be real. It doesn't sport a "Home" button, that is mandatory for future WinMo 6.5 phones, so we can cross that off this list. But, it could be Motorola's first Android device, it could even put the HTC Magic (T-Mobile G2) down the drain. This full touchscreen phone (judging from the pictues) has a 5 megapixel Kodak-branded camera with a xenon flash and a TV-out. This looks too good to be true, especially from Motorola. I was arguing with a friend yesterday about how terrible Motorola's devices have become, but if this gets official i might have to backtrack on those comments. This phone truly looks amazing at the first glance and i'm excited to see whether this phone is real or not. It would be emphatically disappointing to hear that this phone is fake because Motorola has to gain some ground on all of the other devices out there. I wonder why this wasn't at MWC. Motorola's secret device!?

A new Yuma UMPC (Ultra-Mobile Personal Computer) from Trimble has surfaced. It sports a "sunlight-readable" 7-inch touchscreen, has a 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, a 32GB SSD drive, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, ExpressCard and SDIO slots, and two "geotag-enabled cameras." There is also no word on the price tag, but Trimble has mentioned that we should see it ship by April. This UMPC actually doesn't look too bad with the "sunlight-readable" touchscreen, the processor, a 32GB SSD, but i don't know why it would need two camera on-board. I guess one on the front and one on the back? I don't know, but it's all about Motorola right now.

GM's share has hit a 74-year low. "GM shares hit a low of $1.52 in early afternoon trading, before rebounding to $1.82 later in the session. The low matched a record set on July 26, 1934, according to the Center for Research in Security Prices at the University of Chicago." GM's share was worth $3.50 a month ago, this was down from $25.54 from a year ago. Talk about a drop, eh?

At the price of $14.95 USD, TealOS will give your old Palm phone a well-needed upgrade. "TealOS incorporates a lot of the navigation and UI components of Palm's new WebOS, but as an all-encompassing skin for older Palm phones." Gizmodo mentioned that it also ran very smooth "even on an underpowered device like the Centro, and is not only pretty but functional as well." This is actually a must have upgrade and reportedly "breathes so much life back into the Centro it might as well be a whole new phone." There you have it, the TealOS mimics the features of WebOS onto your old Palm phone. You can buy it here for the aforementioned price of $14.95 USD. There is also a 30-day trilal, just in case you want to try it out before-hand. Below is a video of TealOS, via Gizmodo.

Nokia N86 Pre-Orders, See A Comet On Monday, HP Will Make WinMo 6.5 Phones, Windows 7 RC 1

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

You can now pre-order the Nokia N86, if you really want to. According to the screenshot, you can see the price of the phone, which is expensive. It's expensive because of the 8MP camera with the Carl Zeiss lens. Anyways, the release date is also leaked on the site, saying that it will be available on July 22, 2009. The N86 looks decent, but when you slide the phone up, it unleashed a ton of ugly. The plasticky-looking and plain-looking keypad just doesn't do the phone any good. I'll pass. Update: you might want to click on the picture for a bigger image.

You will be able to see Comet Lulin from February 23rd - mid March, with the help of binoculars. Lulin will pass Earth and come as close as 38 million miles away. Lulin was first discovered in July 2007 and will appear about "2 degrees south-southwest of Saturn before it disappears out into the dark abyss in mid-March." This photo i have here is a picture of the comet "and the fading red and blue light comes from the X-ray and ultraviolet telescopes, respectively." So, if you want to take a look at that, go ahead. Although, i can't really tell you where 2 degrees south-southwest of Saturn is.

HP has just announced that it will utilize Windows Mobile 6.5 in its future devices. No surprise here. "The company cites WinMo 6.5's 'key enhancements to business productivity, personal messaging and mobile Internet capabilities' plus its 'new visual appeal' as some of the reasons for its continued love of the OS." I guess they didn't mention that it runs slow and is pretty non-responsive. It's not all about the looks and what Microsoft says WinMo 6.5 will do HP. Hop on the Android bandwagon. Then again, it's not like HP really had a choice of what OS to use for their devices.

Rumour has it that the Windows 7 Release Candidate 1 will be made publicly available on April 10. This is amazing news, but could be a rumour. I hope this is true though, cause that means it's less than 2 months away! I love the Windows 7's beta so far, so an RC coming out soon would be greatly appreciated. Maybe i can run Windows 7 on my PC and Android on a secondary notebook / netbook. Hi Asus! Engadget also mentioned that the unicorn is in the picture because that's what they refer to the OS [Windows 7] as. I don't know why.
