Microsoft Pink "Turtle" Shows Up In Blurry Photo, Headed To Verizon With "Better Than Android" OS

Labels: , ,

We just heard that the Microsoft Pink "Turtle" and the Pure made the rounds last night. Clearly (or unclearly that is) it's sporting a touchscreen display (supposedly 480 x 320 resolution) and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Of course, it'll have social integration and that includes Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, Windows Live, and even Zune. This handset will be launching on Verizon as well. Apparently, the OS - based on Windows CE - is better than Android and if that's true then it will be off to a good start already.

Archos Phone Tablet May Never See the Light Of Day

Labels: , , , ,

Remember that Archos Phone Tablet? Well, when it was unveiled it seemed like a pretty damn good phone and it actually still does to this date. Unfortunately, it may never get launched. Archos' goal was to get two carriers to push it out but Archos may not have achieved this goal. Let's hope it finds its way to the market one way or another because the specs are still pretty juicy.


Bluetooth 4.0 Devices Said To Be Coming In Q4 Of This Year, What About 3.0?

Labels: ,

Nowadays Bluetooth 2.0 / 2.1 is standard in all devices and Bluetooth 3.0 is pretty rare to find these days. Apparently, Bluetooth 4.0 is ready and will actually hit some devices by Q4 of this year. This is pretty surprising, seeing how Bluetooth 3.0 is still rare to find these days. I wonder how fast version 4.0 will be since 3.0 is said to be blazing fast when it reaches its maximum potential.

Microsoft's Project Pink "Turtle" Launching On Verizon, Apparently Confirmed.

Labels: , , , ,

Apparently Project Pink from Microsoft is confirmed and it'll be launching on Verizon in the future. What you see in the picture is exactly what you been getting - at least that's what Gizmodo is unfortunately hearing. It's really a phone with heavy social integration and based on heavy messaging use, perfect for the young teens. Sadly, we still don't have an actual name for these phones so we'll stick by their codenames: Pure and Turtle (above). And no, these aren't running Windows Phone 7.

Update: Apparently, the Pure will feature a 320 x 240 resolution display.

Apparently, it won't be launching this month though since it may be delayed until May. We have no clue and it's actually unconfirmed right now. Let's just hope that Verizon can clear the air.

Asus Plans To Launch Multiple Tablets This Year, Varying In Size

Labels: , , ,

You should already know that Asus is planning to step into the tablet game sooner or later. To go against the iPad, they've mentioned that they'll have a bunch of tablets in the future and they'll vary in sizes. Of course, they'll be running a full OS so you can all the functionality of a notebook - without the keyboard - something the iPad is lacking. At least one of their tablets should be running on the Tegra 2 chipset.

This is the Motorola HS1001 Cordless Android Phone and it's running version 1.6. This phone even manages to pack WiFi and a 2.8-inch display. Unfortunately, it won't have the Android Market on there so you won't be downloading any apps to your home phone.
