BlackBerry Storm / Bold Slider Leaks In Photos Again

Labels: , , ,

The BlackBerry Bold Slider looks like it has just been caught in more photos. Of course, it's the same person leaking them out. Some of the photos show that the batter is just 1050mAh so it's quite small for a BB - according to CrackBerry. The specs still aren't mentioned so maybe we'll know them in a couple of days / weeks / months from now.


HTC Legend Getting Launched In the UK With Vodafone 360

Labels: , , , , , ,

We already know that Vodafone is planning to launch the HTC Legend. We're now hearing that they're planning to launch it with the Vodafone 360 services which is pretty cool. The Legend will be the first Android handset to get this service so it's definitely a big deal. Hopefully this means that we'll see it hit more Android phones in the future.

Acer Aspire 1820PT Notebook Tablet Gets a Price Tag, €599

Labels: , , , , ,

Remember the Acer Aspire 1820PT that we saw hit some websites late last year? Acer showed it off at CeBIT and announced that it'll be launched for €599 ($820 USD). This notebook tablet features an 11.6-inch multitouch capacitive swiveling display (1,366 x 768), up to 8GB of RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo CPU options, a 320GB HDD, WiFi / Bluetooth support, 3G connectivity, an HDMI / Ehternet port, audio jacks, USB 2.0 ports, and Windows 7. When it launches in the US it'll likely launch for [around] $599 though since they get ripped off in Europe which really sucks.


MAINGEAR Unveils mX-L 15 Notebook With Core i5 / i7 CPU Options, Starts At $999

Labels: , , , , ,

MAINGEAR have just announced another notebook that you may or not want to get. The spec sheet is looking pretty good so there's nothing to be upset about here. The mX-L 15 packs an Intel Core i5 / i7 CPU options, ATI Radeon Mobility 4570 graphics, up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, various HDD / SSD options, a 2MP webcam, WiFi b/g/n support, an eSATA / couple of USB 2.0 ports, a chiclet keyboard with a separate numeric keypad, and a multitouch trackpad. The base model features a 15.6-inch display with a 1,366 x768 resolution but you can upgrade it to an LED-backlit one with a 1,600 x 600 resolution. This notebook should start at $999, but you'll have to spec over $2,000 to get a Core i7 CPU with an SSD.

Interesting iPhone 4G Concept, Rendered and Comes In Different Colours

Labels: , ,

What you see above is a concept photo of what someone wants the 4th-generation iPhone to look like - this means that it's not real. I just though it looked pretty interesting - especially since there's a picture of it in several colours. Of course, this concept shows us that the iPhone will have a forward-facing camera for some video iChat. The display is said to be a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen, there's a microSD card slot on-board with 32GB / 64GB of internal storage. Oh yeah, and there's a 5MP snapper on the back. The camera upgrade will likely happen and the AMOLED display could actually be the Super AMOLED if we're lucky enough. I doubt there'll be a microSD card on the next iPhone.

These rendered photos are looking pretty damn good but it looks too fat to be an iPhone and they would never put a circle around the Apple logo like that.

The price still isn't mentioned but the pre-orders could start fairly soon.

Verizon Touch Pro 2 To Get Sense UI and WinMo 6.5.3 Upgrade?

Labels: , , , ,

There's a new rumour going around that the Verizon HTC Touch Pro 2 will be getting an upgrade to their newer Sense UI. Right now it's got the TouchFLO skin on there which isn't much different but it still makes a slight difference. Along with the Sense UI, WinMo 6.5 will be upgraded to WinMo 6.5.3 which would be pretty good. If only it was WinPho 7 upgradeable...

Innocom Plans To Launch 4 Android Phones With Mighty Specs But Inexpensive Prices

Labels: , ,

Innocomm has just announced a bunch of Android-based handsets that they're set to launch. The first one is the Shark which is scheduled for a May / June launch. It'll feature a 3.2-inch touchscreen display with a 480 x 800 resolution, an 8MP camera with a flash, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a microSD card slto, GPS / WiFi support, 3G / HSPA connectivity, and analog / digital TV receiver. The spec sheet is pretty damn good, I just wish the display was bigger.

Other phones they are planning to launch is the Scorpion, the Shadow, and the Gemini. The specs for these three handsets are unknown but the Shadow is expected to have a 4.3-inch display - surprisingly similar to the Motorola Shadow...

All of these phones are expected to be inexpensive, but we don't have any exact pricing details right now.

It looks like the Sony Ericsson Naite is now available in the US thanks to the Sony Style store. This candybar handset is 50% made of recyclable materials and it'll actually only cost you $159.

Don't forget that if you live in Canada this handset is already available on Fido here for $25 CAD on a 2-year contract.

You may know the Acer Aspire One 532G netbook and it looks like they just found a possible price tag for it. Apparently it'll be launching for 379 Euros ($516 USD) sometime soon. Besides the Ion 2 with Nvidia's Optimus technology it's a fairly standard netbook. Sadly, early benchmarks stated that this netbook actually has a lower graphics benchmark than the old Ion.

WIND Mobile To Launch the HTC Magic+ Soon?

Labels: , , , , , ,

Apparently Rogers won't be the only carrier in Canada to have the HTC Magic+. If this is true then WIND Mobile could be getting the Magic+ too which is essentially the Magic with the Sense UI and a couple of other fixes. It just sucks that they had to go with this phone to start off their Android onslaught since this handset is so old already.

Apparently, the include the Motorola DEXT (CLIQ in the US), the Quench (CLIQ XT in the US), and the Backflip. All of these handsets have Motorola's own MOTOBLUR skin (for social integration) over top of Android. Unfortunately, we don't know which carrier will get what handset so we'll have to wait around for that information. Check out Motorola's site here.

On March 26th, Apple Stores could actually be selling the iPad for the prices that we already heard. Only the WiFi model will be available on the 26th with the 3G model coming in late April or May.

BlackBerry Touch Slider aka Mr T aka Storm 3 Picture Leaks Out? -- Could Be A Bold

Labels: , , ,

Apparently, this could be what RIM is codenaming the Mr. T aka the BlackBerry Storm 3. Clearly, it's got a similar factor-form to the Palm Pre. This is unconfirmed right now, but it's looking like this touchscreen slider will pop up again in the near future with a video. It doesn't look all that great but I'm sure if RIM were to render it all nice and stuff some people would fall in love with it.

There's not much they can really do to this handset to make it more BlackBerry-like. It's got the optical trackpad and a familiar keyboard as well.

Update: According to CrackBerry's lengthy post, this handset likely won't be the Storm 3 since it'll be part of the Bold Series. At least, that's what they believe. Apparently, there won't be SurePress on this screen and it'll act more like every other touchscreen out there.

It looks like Telus has the Curve 8530 smartphone for a whopping $149.99 on contract now. As a comparison this smartphone launched for $49.99 and then dropped to $24.99 a couple of weeks ago. The price should drop again so I'd advise you not to buy it for this ridiculous price. Check it out on Telus - just to laugh and not purchase.
