O2 UK Launches the HTC HD2; Will Be Upgradeable To Windows Mobile 7?

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

Vodafone has had it for a little while, but O2 UK has just launched the HTC HD2 as well. This handset will be available for free on an 18-month contract, but you'll have to pay £45 monthly. Check it out on O2's site here - I can't navigate it because I'm not in the UK.

Along with this news, we're hearing that the HTC HD2 could actually be upgraded to WinMo 7 when it gets released. This is just a rumour at this point, but it could definitely be possible with its amazing spec sheet.

LG BL40 Getting Launched in Korea With a Better 8MP Camera

Labels: , ,

Well, how fair is this? The LG BL40 is launching in Korea as the LG KU6300 / LU6300 / SU630 (varies in internal memory). It'll have the exact same specs and looks as the original BL40, but it'll sport a heftier 8MP camera on the back. Thanks a lot, LG.

Right now we don't know if it'll sport WiFi / GPS or a T-DMB tuner.

Verizon Officially Releasing the Samsung Omnia II On December 2 For $199

Labels: , ,

We heard about it last week and now it's official. Verizon and Samsung has just announced that the Omnia II will see the light of day on December 2nd for $199.99 on a 2-year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate. They changed up the look of the handset a little bit, but the specs are exactly the same. I'd still get the DROID over this, especially with Dell offering it for $120.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Headed To AT&T, If They Were To Choose A US Carrier

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Pre-orders have started for the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 and, as you can see above, some e-tailers are putting the prices as high as $999.99 USD - some have it higher though. That's not the big news here though. We have just got confirmation that the X10 will have quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE bands (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and UMTS/HSPA bands (800/850/900/1700/1900/2100 MHz). So, what exactly does this mean? This means that if Sony Ericsson chooses a carrier in the US, it'll be with AT&T. Unfortunately, that 1700MHz UMTS band won't work in America, so it won't be headed to T-Mobile.

So, it could be the XPERIA X10 vs the iPhone next year.
