Labels: , , , ,

In the UK, Orange (the carrier) is working on their own-branded Android handset. Dubbed Project JAL (above), this is reportedly going to feature WiFi / GPS / Bluetooth, a 3MP camera, and Android 2.1. Seeing how it'll be sporting a 3MP you can expect a mid-level handset. The phone itself will be available on PAYG and on a monthly contract as well. The release date hasn't been mentioned yet so we'll have to wait around for that.

Windows 7 Slates and WinPho 7 Handsets Coming This Year, List Of Manufacturers

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Everything that you really need to know is in the slide above. Unveiled at WPC 2010 (which started yesterday), Microsoft has just announced that a bunch of Windows 7 tablets (Slates) and Windows Phone 7 handsets are coming within the next year. This includes big names like: Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, Lenovo, Samsung, MSI, Onkyo, Panasonic, Pegatron, Sony, and Toshiba. Of course, you'll see HP on the list as well so the official HP Slate could be coming as well. These tablets are going to come in various shapes and sizes, you'll also be seeing different displays as well; some tablets will feature dockable keyboards, full touch, and even digital ink. I still can't help myself by saying that Microsoft is looking to go for quantity over quality right now, just slapping the Windows 7 OS on tablets - that won't work.

Of course, on the other side you have the list of manufacturers on board for Windows Phone 7. This includes: Dell, HTC, Garmin-Asus, LG, Sony Ericsson, and Toshiba. Surprisingly enough, HP isn't on the list so maybe theirs will be coming next year - or maybe they're sticking to WebOS now that they've bought Palm.

Great news for people that live in Canada! Rogers' employees have just started their training for the iPhone 4! This means that the launch is coming up, hopefully before the end of this month. It could get launched on July 28th if we're lucky and this may mean the three major carriers in Canada will be getting it. Of course, it may be early next month since there was a rumoured August 4th date as well. Either way, it's coming in a couple of weeks - even though there's a design flaw.
