Google Nexus One Packing 1GHz Snapdragon CPU With WiFi Support and FM Transmitter

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Some specs of the Google Nexus One have been confirmed. Since the OS (Android 2.1) has already been leaked people were able to find that the Nexus One does have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz CPU and the Broadcom BCM4329 chipset which has WiFi b/g/n support and an FM transmitter. That's all well and good and if it really launches for $99, it's a bargain.

Nokia 7230 Passes the FCC With 3G Support, Should Be Cheap

Labels: , ,

Another Nokia handset has passed the FCC and this time it's the Nokia 7230. This slider handset features: a 2.4-inch QVGA display, Bluetooth 2.1 / 3G support, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 3.2MP camera, a microSD card slot, and an FM radio. Unfortunately, it lacks both GPS and WiFi support. It'll be 3G capable on AT&T if you're in the USA and it should be pretty cheap. Check out the FCC listing here.

Motorola MB501 Identified To Be the GSM / WCDMA Variant of the Zeppelin

Labels: , , , ,

Cell Passion is on their heels right now. They have just discovered that the Motorola MB501 that they spotted in late October will actually be a GSM / WCDMA variant of the Motorola Zeppelin. This is pretty shocking news because now we have a CDMA and a GSM model of this phone. It could be launched on any carrier now. However, Cell Passion believes that there will be "three variants of the Zeppelin - one for the Chinese market, another one for the American market with CDMA and a third for the European and other Asian markets with GSM and WCDMA." Interesting stuff there.

Vodafone Launching the Nokia N900 In January 2010

Labels: , , ,

Although we don't know exactly when it'll be available Vodafone has just confirmed that they will be launching the Nokia N900 soon - aka sometime in January. Pricing isn't mentioned, but it'll likely be available for free on contract. Hopefully Vodafone doesn't decide to ditch this phone as soon as the iPhone 3GS is released like they did with the HD2.

Vodafone has today announced the Nokia N900 is coming soon to its UK customers. The highly-anticipated Smartphone delivers a computer-grade experience in a sleek device, with the embedded Maemo software enabling powerful multi-tasking.
The Nokia N900 enables you to customise your homescreen with four personalisable views for easy access to all your favourites, whether that’s email, music, web browsing or your most-used apps. View all this on the impressive 3.5 inch high-resolution touch-screen with 3D accelerated graphics, virtual on-screen keyboard and full side-slide QWERTY keyboard.
The Smartphone boasts a solid 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optic lens. The 32 GB expandable memory allows users to store all their favourite snaps, music and files.

Labels: , , , ,

MSI unofficially introduced their X-Slim X600 Pro model yesterday morning and now they're flaunting their X-Slim X350 notebook. This notebook will be introduced at CES 2010 and will feature: a 13.4-inch display with a 1,366 x 768 resolution, an Intel Pentium Dual-Core SU4100 / Core 2 Duo SU7300 ULV CPU options, a 320GB / 500GB HDD options, integrated Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics, an HDMI port, 2GB of RAM, a 1.3MP webcam, and a 4 / 8 cell battery option. Like I said, expect it at CES 2010 because you won't be able to get your hands on one this year.


T-Mobile To Offer the Google Nexus One / HTC Passion Starting On January 5th?

Labels: , , , , , ,

Picture the Google Nexus One with T-Mobile branding and that could be what will be happening in early 2010. According to Reuters (still a rumour), T-Mobile could be offering to sell what we know as the Nexus One as something else. We already know that this handset is the HTC Passion / Dragon from a while ago, but it could be hitting the carrier subsidized as early as January 5th. This handset will also be sold unsubsidized by Google, possibly on the same day, but we'll have to wait for pricing details.

Update: According to Lifehacker, it could be available for $99.99 USD on a 2-year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate. This would likely see competition from the iPhone since it is priced $100 cheaper than the latest model.
