Bell's Rumour Plus Hits the LG Canada's Website, Delayed Until August 27th -- Actually September 15th

Labels: , , , ,

It clearly didn't hit Bell Canada on August 11th, but the LG Rumour Plus has just hit the LG Canada's website. The launch has reportedly been delayed until August 27th, so it's just a week away. In case you forgot, the LG Rumour Plus (GW370) packs a 2.4-inch touchscreen display with a 240 x 320 resolution, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 2MP camera, and a microSD card slot. It's a lot like the LG Neon so you won't be missing out on much if you decide not to pick it up.

Update: According to another Mobile Syrup post, the LG Rumour Plus headed to Bell is actually going to hit the carrier on September 15th. Yes, it's been delayed again.

LG C900 Leaks Out, Headed To AT&T With Windows Phone 7 and All

Labels: , , , , , ,

For Engadget's third exclusive piece of the day they've got their hands-on another Windows Phone 7 device (just pictures) and this time it's coming from LG, the C900. Two weeks ago we heard that AT&T was testing this phone and this turns out to be true. As you can see in the image below, one of tiles have the AT&T logo in it so it's definitely headed there. It has the LG look to it (cheap and platicky) and the keyboard seems to be one of the better crafted ones out there, a 4-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard that looks easy enough to type on.

Update: According to Engadget, LG could be planning to unveil the C900 around the September 28th date. This is judging on the tip coming from the Bluetooth SIG.


Pioneer Computers Now Taking Pre-Orders For the DreamBook ePad N7 Tablet

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

Pioneer Computers (here) is now taking pre-orders of their DreamBook ePad N7 tablet which looks a lot like the Aigo N700 tablet which is a rebranded Compal NAZ-10. This one is priced at AUD $599, which is about $530 USD, and it sports a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display with a 480 x 800 resolution and Nvidia's Tegra 2 graphics. Other specs include: 4GB of internal storage, 512MB of RAM, a microSD card slot, WiFi b/g support, an HDMI output, and if you order one right now they'll throw in the optional 1.3MP webcam for free. For an extra $99 you'll get 3G connectivity so that's pretty sweet if you're willing to cough up the extra money. It's running Android 2.1 and might not have access to the Android Market so maybe that's one you thing you'll dislike.

MSI has revealed another notebook - without the pricing or release date, of course. What you see above is the MSI FX610 which sports an AMD Phenom II CPU along with ATI's Radeon HD 5470 graphics, essentially similar to the FX600 with AMD / ATI innards. Beneath the 15.6-inch 720p display you'll find a 500GB HDD (640GB / 750GB optional), WiFi / Bluetooth support, an integrated 720p webcam, and a 6-cell battery. Like I said, the most important details are still unknown so we'll have to wait around for that.

Engadget just got some exclusive pictures regarding the upcoming T-Mobile G2, which is definitely the HTC Vision. The slide-out QWERTY keyboard looks easy enough to type on and Engadget points out that there's a 3.7-inch touchscreen display on there - you can also see an optical trackpad and four touch-sensitive buttons. Check out another two photos below!

Update: Engadget got another slew of photos, this time showing the hinge beneath the keyboard. Unfortunately, this won't have a tilting screen - like the HTC Touch Pro 2.

Labels: , , , , , , ,

There's a rumour going around regarding when T-Mobile USA's G2 Android-based smartphone will be launching. Phandroid has pointed out that it could be on September 29th. This smartphone should be one of the best of the market since it should be the HTC Vision which will have HSPA+ connectivity. If this doesn't play out, it should land sometime in September - so maybe even earlier.


LG's enV Touch 2 To Be the enV G, Talk About Some "Thunder", WP7 Slider (Panther?)

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

We just heard about LG's enV Touch 2 yesterday and it will reportedly be sporting the Android OS. Boy Genius has just mentioned that the enV Touch 2 will actually launch as the enV G. This handset is said to feature dual touchscreen displays along with a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU so it'll be right up there with the best of them. There's also word of another mid-end Android 2.1 handset that the company is working on and this is said to be known internally as the "Thunder" - not to be confused with the Dell Thunder. This handset is said to be sport a touchscreen display and will be available on five major carriers in the US (Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, and MetroPCS). It seems like this will be their answer to Samsung's Galaxy S - in terms of sales, not raw power.

Last, but not least, there's some Windows Phone 7 news. Apparently, LG's first WP7 handset will be sporting a touchscreen display along with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. This isn't exactly the biggest rumour around since we've seen this phone leaked a bunch of times already - the Panther.
