BlackBerry Curve 9300 CDMA Variant Slips Through the FCC

Labels: , , ,

Well, it looks like a new BlackBerry Curve from RIM has just hit the FCC (filing here). Well, it is likely the BlackBerry Curve 9300 smartphone with tri-band CDMA connectivity with AWS. It looks pretty much like their Curve 8500 Series (Engadget points out), so that's why it's likely the 9300 Series. Look out for this not-so-major upgrade soon.

Labels: , , , , , ,

We don't know if this leaked Sprint calendar is up-to-date but if it is then they could be launching the Motorola i1 (Opus One) on July 25th. Of course, the calendar doesn't mention a price tag and another picture shows off the upcoming Epic 4G (below). Sadly, the release date for that smartphone isn't outlined anywhere.


Samsung Q330, Q430, and Q530 Notebooks Hitting the UK Later This Month

Labels: , , , , ,

Samsung has announced three notebooks today as a part of their Q Series in the UK. This includes the 13.3-inch Q330, 14-inch Q430, and the 15.6-inch Q530 notebooks and they'll all be hitting the market before the end of this month. We heard about all three of these notebooks in May so they're not all that new. The Q330 thin-and-light notebook packs Intel Core 2010 CPU options along with Nvidia's GeForce 310M GPU.

The Q430 and the Q530 are pretty much the same notebook except for the screen size, of course. They'll both be featuring LED-backlit displays, Intel Core i3 / i5 CPU options, Nvidia GeForce GT330M graphics, WiFi (with ad-hoc) / Bluetooth 3.0 support, a webcam, an optical drive, a card reader, HDMI / USB ports, and a battery life that should last 7 hours or so. The prices weren't mentioned.

Samsung I9200's Rumoured Specs Fulfill Your Fantasies

Labels: , , , , ,

At this point we already know that Samsung is fully capable of launching high-end smartphones so here's the latest rumour that's making the rounds. What you see above could possibly be the Samsung I9200. The form factor reminds me of the LG BL40, but the specs are a different story. The rumoured spec sheet says that this smartphone packs a 4.3-inch capacitive Super AMOLED2 display with a 1,280 x 720 resolution, a 2GHz CPU (possible a dual-core 1GHz CPU), 1GB of RAM, 4GB of ROM, 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, aGPS / WiFi b/g/n / Bluetooth 3.0 support, an 8MP AF camera with Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 resolution) video recording, a gyroscope, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. All those specs seem well and good especially since it'll be running the Android OS. Likely Gingerbread (3.0), since it's on track for a Q1 release if it's true. This will retail for $800.

LG Confirms An Android-Based Tablet For This Year, Announce Three Optimus Phones Too

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

It's a good day for LG, Android, and tablet fans out there. You guessed it. LG has just announced that they'll be launching an Android-based tablet before the end of this year (Q4). The specs are still unknown right now so all we have is this confirmation. In somewhat related news, LG has also mentioned that a new version of their SU950 handset, the Optimus Z, will be launching with Android 2.2 "Froyo". Like the title says, LG has just announced three Android-based phones as a part of their Optimus line-up as well.

The one above is the updated Optimus Z smartphone which packs a 3.8-inch touchscreen display, an HDMI output, HD video recording, a TI OMAP3630 CPU (1GHz?), and Android. This is actually the highest-end of the bunch.

The next one is called the Optimus One. This will actually be a lower-end Android-based handset that will be running 2.2 "Froyo" when it hits the market in Q1 of 2011. This will be launching in Korea and there's no word if it'll hit anywhere else besides there.

Last, but not least, is the Optimus Chic from LG. The specs for this device isn't known yet but it'll be hitting the market with Android 2.2 as well. The release date for this is still unknown.
