Lenovo and Acer Prepping Netbooks With Google Chrome OS For Christmas Time? - Let's Hope.

Labels: , , ,

T-Mobile UK Launching the HTC HD2 This Month, But They Get Their Product Page All Wrong

Labels: , , , , ,

It looks like even T-Mobile UK is confused about exactly what they are launching. Before I say anything, they have just briefly mentioned that they will be launching the HTC HD2 sometime this month - we heard November 6th. But, as you can see in the photo above, there are a lot of things wrong in this picture.

First, that's a picture of the original HTC Touch HD. Second, the label clearly says HTC Touch HD2, which is another error. The bullet points state that you'll be able to use the Android Market to download apps, which is incorrect since the HD2 is running WinMo 6.5. The "Huge 3.8' touchscreen" is also the wrong size since the HD2 has a 4.3-inch touchscreen display (the HTC Touch HD has a 3.8-inch display).

On a less serious note, maybe T-Mobile UK is launching that Android version of the Touch HD that we've been hearing about, but I doubt it.

Anyways, you must be confused as I am, but it looks like T-Mobile UK will clear this all up this week since they're going to make it all official on Wednesday. Let's hope they remember to change their product page too. Check out all of the errors on their website here.

Overseas the Motorola Milestone (Motorola DROID) Will Have Multitouch Support

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Although there's no multitouch support on the Motorola DROID in the US - by default at least - it looks like the Motorola Milestone that's set to launch overseas will have it. Motorola has just officially announced the Motorola Milestone for Europe and it will come with multitouch support - aka pinch and zoom - but it won't have Google's awesome turn by turn navigation. Check out the video below for some multitouch action.
