Nokia RX-51 / N900 Rover Prototype Pictured, Passed FCC With 3G, WiFi; Possibly Hitting T-Moble by the End of the Year

Labels: , , , , , , ,

What you see above is the Nokia RX-51 / N900 Rover prototype that likely passed the FCC just yesterday. This internet tablet has: a 3.5-inch touchscreen display with a 480 x 800 resolution, HSPA / WiFi / 3G support, a 5MP camera, and 32GB of internal storage. Like I said yesterday, this internet tablet will probably hit T-Mobile and judging from the ear piece on the device, this baby will also be able to make calls. This Maemo-powered device is rumoured to be hitting the shelves by the end of this year. Check out both links below for more photos.

Update: According to Phone Arena, we have some more information on the Nokia N900 Rover / RX-51. The touchscreen is said to be resistive, which sucks; the camera has: autofocus, a Carl Zeiss lens, a sliding lens cover, and a dual-LED flash. The CPU inside of this device is an ARM Cortex A8 with speeds of 600MHz - 1GHz; and yes, this device is running on the Maemo OS. Even with this additional news, the price and release date has not been mentioned yet.

Big Leak: LG Chocolate Touch, Samsung Omnia 2, Samsung Rogue Coming on August 23rd?

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

If this is true, August 23rd will be a big day for everyone in the US. It looks like a lot of phones are going to be available on that day, probably one of the biggest days of the year.

  • Samsung Gravity 2 (berry) — T-Mobile

  • Samsung Solstice — AT&T

  • LG Xenon (red) — AT&T

  • Global AirCard (G2) — Verizon

  • Samsung Rogue — Verizon

  • LG Chocolate Touch — Verizon

  • Samsung u450 Intensity — Verizon

  • Samsung Omnia 2 — Verizon

  • BlackBerry Tour — (new shipment, Sprint)

  • What did I tell you? The LG Chocolate Touch is more than likely the LG BL40; the Samsung Omnia 2 is probably the I8000 Omnia II; the Samsung Rogue is basically what it says it is. What's also fairly interesting is that at the top there's an "M330" listed to be available on September 3rd and we've actually heard nothing about it before. Let's hope this leak stays true to its word!

    HTC Touch Pro 2 and Samsung Dash / Instinct s50 to Launch on Sprint on September 3rd

    Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

    Before today, we didn't have any firm evidence about the HTC Touch Pro 2 launching on Sprint on September 3rd, but we finally do now. Above is a picture of an internal document that outlines that a couple of phones will be available on the 3rd of September. Other than the HTC Touch Pro 2, it looks like the Samsung M240 / M330, LG Rumor 2, and Samsung Instinct s50 will be launching on this day as well.

    The Instinct s50 is actually the Samsung Dash, so that could be a good or bad thing for you. An orange LG Rumor 2 will also be launching on this day and two other low to mid-end Samsung handsets will launch on that day as well. Anyways, the Touch Pro 2 is expected to launch for $299 USD on a 2-year contract.
