Browsing around the FCC database and what did Engadget find? It's the HTC Legend with the famous 850 / 1900MHz WCDMA 3G bands. This is perfect for AT&T in the US and Rogers, Bell and Telus in Canada. Not much left to tell you here, but if you're interested then check out the FCC filing here.

Panasonic has just introduced two more notebooks as a part of their Toughbook line-up. The CF-T8 is above, while the CF-52 is below. The Toughbook CF-T8 sports a 12.1-inch touchscreen display, an Intel Core 2 Duo 1.6GHz CPU, a 250GB shock-mounted HDD, Bluetooth support, the intergrated Gobi mobile chipset, WiFi b/g/n, an 8-hour battery life, and Windows 7.

BlackBerry Slider 9800 "Mr. T" Finally Gets Turned On, Running BB OS 6.0

Labels: , , , , ,

We've seen this handset a couple of times now, but it's always been turned off. A new picture (above) of the handset, codenamed "Mr. T" is now making the rounds because it's turned on to reveal that it'll be running BB OS 6.0. That means that this device is as real as it gets and it'll likely get launched in Q3 of this year. This seems like a too little too late effort from RIM but maybe it's got something juicy that we don't know yet. BBLeaks has mentioned that this handset will eventually get launched as the BlackBerry Slider 9800.

Vodafone Launching the Nokia C3 and the BlackBerry Pearl 3G (9105) Soon

Labels: , , , , , , ,

The Nokia C3 will be making a trip to Europe seeing how Vodafone has just announced that they've snagged an exclusive deal for the handset. Unfortunately, it's not one of Nokia's high-end phones. This will be available for free on select contracts and it'll come in a slate grey (above) and a pink colour. It should hit the shelves soon.

Update: According to Unwired View, that's not all that's headed to Vodafone. They'll also be launching the BlackBerry Pearl (9105) 3G. This handset is the one with the traditional T9 keypad so it looks kind of awkward.

Samsung S-Pad Tablet To Sport 7-Inch Super AMOLED Display and Android, Coming This August?

Labels: , , , , , , ,

We already know that Samsung is working on some kind of tablet and let the rumours swirl again. Apparently, it's being dubbed the S-Pad and it'll be featuring a 7-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display along with [the latest version of] Android. Of course, there'll be WiFi / 3G connectivity and it should be hitting the shelves this August - via SK Telecom. Other goodies are said to be a USB dock, content from Korea's largest bookstore, Kyobo Books (Engadget might add), and Samsung Apps application store. The price hasn't been mentioned but if it's packing a 7-inch Super AMOLED display it shouldn't come cheap.
