Leaked Photo of the HTC Espresso, Set To Become the myTouch Slide On T-Mobile

Labels: , , , ,

Since we now know that the HTC Espresso won't be the Hero's successor - that'll be the Legend - this picture above is hinting at what it will be. It looks like it'll be launched on T-Mobile as the myTouch Slide or the myTouch2. This handset will feature a 320 x 480 resolution touchscreen display, a 3.5mm headphone jack, an ARM11 CPU (possibly the Qualcomm MSM7227 600MHz CPU), a camera with an LED flash, a microSD card slot, Android, and a 1,300mAh battery. As you can also see the trackball is gone and is replaced by an optical trackpad.

If the rumours were true this handset should be available on May 17th in black, white, and red models - similar to the current myTouch 3G.

It looks like T-Mobile in Europe has just leaked the prices for the Apple iPad. Unfortunately they are the same numbers as the US model, but this time it's in Euros so it's more expensive. There's a full shot of them below. The plans weren't mentioned so we'll know more at a later date.

Motorola MOTOCUBO A45 Now Available In the US For $160, Without WiFi and 3G Though

Labels: ,

Without any details on where to scoop up the phone, Fone Arena has mentioned that the Motorola MOTOCUBO A45 is now available in the US for around $159. As you can see this handset is a slider that contains a QWERTY keypad. It's got a 2.5-inch display with a 320 x 240 resolution, a 3.5mm headphone jack, 32MB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, Bluetooth support, GPRS / EDGE connectivity, a 2MP camera with video recording capabilities, an FM radio with RDS support, and a 930mAh battery. It's lacking both WiFi and 3G support so that would explain the cheap price.

Microsoft Confirms Windows Mobile 7 At MWC; Caught Running On i-Mate JASJAR?

Labels: , , , , ,

Microsoft has finally mentioned and confirmed that Windows Mobile 7 will make an appearance at MWC 2010. This is great news since a lot of people have been wondering "what's up?" with Microsoft's upcoming update to their mobile OS. WinMo 7 should have multitouch support and could bring things like integration with Xbox Live and all of those popular social networking sites. WinMo 7 is also expected to feature minimal requirements such as a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 8GB of internal storage, an 800 x 480 touchscreen display, 3G / WiFi / GPS support. They're definitely going after the high-end market with their next mobile OS which should put pressure on the future of Android and the iPhone.

MWC kicks off on February 15th so mark it on your calendars.

Update: According to Unwired View, a new picture has been surfacing online of an old-school i-mate JASJAR running Windows Mobile 7 (above). This is actually extremely weird since the minimal specs for WinMo 7 are way more than what this phone can handle. The JASJAR only has 64MB of RAM and 128MB of ROM. Apparently the minimal specs we heard are actually inaccurate. The "new" supposed list of requirements (and recommendations) are below.

  • Minimum RAM: 128MB (at least 256MB is recommended though)
  • Minimum ROM: 512MB
  • CPU: 600MHz ARM v6+
  • 3.6 inch display is not a requirement
  • WVGA resolution is not necessary – WM7 phones will have various resolutions, including QVGA
  • Compass is not a requirement (although it’s recommended)
  • G-Sensor (accelerometer) is also not a requirement, but it’s recommended


Apple Patent Hits At Video Recording On Future iPod Touch

Labels: , , , ,

This should surprise no one. It looks like Apple has been given the green light by the US Patent Office to add a camera along with video recording capabilities on the next iPod Touch. Let's just hope that it also snaps photos as well - unlike the latest iPod Nano with a camera.

On a side note, they also applied for a patent having to do with LED-backlight technology. This will be implemented in their upcoming iPad.

Toshiba TG02 Spotted At the FCC, Making a Showing At MWC?

Labels: , , ,

Hmm, so what could this be? If you read the title, it looks like it could very well be the upcoming successor to the Toshiba TG01 - the TG02. No specs are outlined but we do know that it'll have quad-band GSM connectivity, and GPS / WiFi / Bluetooth support. Unfortunately it looks like it doesn't have American 3G support, which sucks. Let's hope the TG02 makes an arrival at MWC in a couple of weeks; let's also hope that they announce a North American model with 3G support. Check out the FCC filing here.

Labels: , , , ,

It looks like the rumour proved to be true. Motorola's CEO, Sanjay Jha, has just confirmed that they are indeed looking to launch the next Google phone that "will be sold directly to consumers." This will likely end up being the Google Nexus Two. We don't know what this model will look like, but it could be something like what you see above which is the rumoured Motorola Shadow. The next handset in the Nexus line is rumoured to have a QWERTY keyboard so it could work. We'll just have to see what happens cause this could be the Nexus One "Enterprise model" or something like that.

Labels: , ,

The Dell Adamo is a pricey MacBook Air competitor, or at least it was. Dell has thankfully cut the base model price of their Adamo notebook so it's not just $999.

You can step it up though to the $1,799 model which will give you a 2.1GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and a $256GB SSD. For comparison's sake, this is $500 cheaper than it was in October. Check it out on Dell here.
