Labels: , , , ,

What you see above is being called the Qualcomm Snaptop. As you can see the display has a stand on the back and that keyboard is detachable and can be operated wirelessly over Bluetooth.

Right now this is only a prototype so it could be a while if we ever see it hit the market.

Labels: , , , , , ,

We already know that the Motorola Milestone is set to launch on Telus early this year but we don't know when. Well, the latest rumour has it that it will launch on January 26th - if everything is "on time". This will definitely be the best Android phone to-date that has hit Canada. Hopefully this rumour turns out to be true, especially since Telus has one of the fastest networks.

Update: That was shortlived. According to a newer Mobile Syrup post the Milestone actually won't be launching on January 26th. It's still scheduled for an early Q1 launch, but the date is still unknown.
