WIND Mobile Launches In Canada, Four Phones and a Data Stick; $35 For Unlimited Data Plan.

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

This morning, WIND Mobile held a launch event in Toronto at Harbourfront, but I was unable to go because of my exam schedule. Well, they announced that they will have 4 phones available including the BlackBerry Bold 9700 (for $450 CAD), the Samsung Gravity 2 (for $150 CAD), the HTC Maple (for $300 CAD), and the Huawei U759 ($130). Along with those phones is the Huawei E181 (for $150 CAD) data stick. The pricing hasn't been made official yet, but below is what we do know about it.

  • No contracts on services
  • No activation fees
  • No charge for incoming long distance
  • No penalties for changing or canceling a plan
  • Unlimited WIND to WIND calling
  • All plans include caller ID, missed call alerts, call waiting, call hold, call forwarding, unlimited conference calling — no extra charge
  • No charge for incoming text messages, ever
  • No E911 fees

Update: According to Electronista, the pricing is actually pretty identical to the leaked ones we heard a couple of days ago. The initial price for the phone is a bit on the expensive side, but you save money over time by switching to WIND Mobile. Yes, $35 monthly for an unlimited data plan. How sweet is that!?

Broadcom VideoCore IV Chip To Support 20MP Images and Full HD 1080p Video Recording, Coming To Handsets In 2011


Just when you thought 12MP was enough, we heard about Toshiba's processor that will support up to 14.6MP camera sensors on mobile phones. Well, Broadcom has one-upped them with their latest VideoCore IV processor. This processor can handle 20MP images and can even record 1080p video (in H.264 format, which is what they use on Blu-ray discs) if the camera sensor on your mobile phone is good enough. Of course, it'll also have image stabilization and face / smile detection. With this chip you'll also be able to play back Full HD video over HDMI (possibly using micro HDMI in the future).

"The last trick that the Broadcom VideoCore IV has up its sleeve is that it works as a GPU with 128MB LPDDR2 of dedicated RAM, for rendering 3D graphics." Damn, technology evolves too fast. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait until 2011 for all of this goodness to hit cell phones.

Nvidia Tegra 2 Set To Make Appearance At CES 2010

Labels: , , , , , , ,

It looks like Nvidia is planning to pull off the curtain at CES 2010 next year. They're set to announce their Tegra 2 chipset that will be outed in certain tablets, smartbooks, netbooks, and MIDs in the first half of 2010. At this point we know that the Tegra 2 will have "roughly twice the power and graphical capabilities of the original and be based on 40nm processes." Since the original Tegra can already do 1080p, Tegra 2 is expected to take it to the next level and speed up the "reponse times." CES 2010, like I said, is going to be a big event.

Labels: , , ,

It looks Palm will have something to unveil at CES 2010 which is great news. Last year they surprised us with the Palm Pre which was a great device and we're hoping that this one is even better. It will likely be a clear successor to the Pre with WebOS, of course. Let's hope they announce an explosion of apps too, for their users' sake.
