Motorola ES400 To Be the First Windows Embedded Handheld

Labels: , , ,

The Motorola ES400 was spotted way back in April in Sprint's internal systems and it looks like it'll be the first handset that'll be sporting the Windows Embedded Handheld platform. This is really basically just an improved Windows Mobile 6.5.3 so it's not the most exciting this out there. The handset itself will feature a resistive VGA touchscreen display, a Qualcomm MSM7627 600MHz CPU, a QWERTY keyboard, a fingerprint scanner, and 3.5G connectivity (ability to switch from GSM and CDMA). We should see this handset launch in a few months - who knows if it'll hit Sprint anymore.


AT&T Announces Their Galaxy S As the Samsung Captivate, Launching In a Few Months

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Earlier this month we heard that the Samsung Galaxy S would be hitting AT&T with a slight redesign along with a rename to the Samsung Captivate. This smartphone will be the Galaxy S inside a different body and will feature a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1GHz CPU, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, WiFi b/g/n / Bluetooth 3.0 support, HSPA connectivity, a 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording, and Android 2.1 along with the TouchWiz 3.0 UI. Hopefully, AT&T doesn't cripple the handset itself by only allowing signed apps. Anyways, this smartphone will be hitting the carrier in a few months.

Verizon Puts Up the Teaser Site For the DROID X A Bit Early

Labels: , , , , , ,

It looks like it's just about official now - a bit earlier than expected. The Motorola DROID X looks exactly as we thought it would. The DROID 2 doesn't make an appearance on the new teaser site (here), so we'll have to wait until a later date for that. This smartphone should be launching sometime in July.

Pegatron Said To Be Shipping CDMA iPhone 4's To Apple In Q4, According to DigiTimes

Labels: , , , , , , ,

This just doesn't get old. DigiTimes has just mentioned that a CDMA iPhone could be launching in Q4 of this year. Of course, we already know that AT&T has exclusive rights on the iPhone until next year so maybe it'll just be an announcement late this year. According to the article though, Pegatron will be shipping their CDMA iPhone 4's sometime in Q4 so maybe Apple will do some testing first. We'll have to wait and see.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d Gets Unveiled, 3D Capabilities But Silly Glasses Still a Requirement

Labels: , , ,

Lenovo has finally hopped onto the 3D bandwagon by unveiling the 3D model of their IdeaPad Y560, naming it the IdeaPad Y560d. This notebook surprisingly won't be using Nvidia's 3D Vision technology, instead they opted for TriDef's 3D technology which you'll also find in Acer's Aspire 5738DG (Engadget points out). Unfortunately, you'll still need glasses to view the 3D content and there won't be support for 3D Blu-ray which could be a let down for some. Inside you'll find Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 CPU options, ATI Radeon HD5720 graphics, up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, and Lenovo's RapidDrive technology (combining an HDD and an SSD for faster boot times). This notebook will be making its debut later this month at a base price of $1,200.
