Although there are just about no details regarding this new device that hit the FCC, it tells us that it does have AWS 3G connectivity and it's coming from HTC.

HTC T8788 Sporting Windows Phone 7 Leaks Out, Headed To AT&T With Slide-Out... Speaker.

Labels: , , , , ,

A couple of weeks ago we heard that AT&T in the US were testing two Windows Phone 7 devices. One was the LG C900 and the other one has leaked out today in another Engadget exclusive, the HTC T8788. Specs are unknown right now, but what we know is that it has a touchscreen display along with three touch-sensitive buttons. Unfortunately, HTC decided not to go with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard on this one. What you see slid out is actually an external speaker - and there's even a kickstand on the back. Looks like they really are trying to make these devices "unique." Oh well.

This includes the 3.2MP camera on the back, 3G support, and Android 2.2 "Froyo". The display is said to span across 7-inches and will also sport a 1,024 x 600 resolution. This is looking pretty good (even though the body is made of plastic), but I doubt it will outsell the iPad. I might be picking one up though.

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

Don't worry though. For you Android lovers out there, MSI will be releasing their Tegra 2 packing Android 2.2 tablet later this year, the Wind Pad 110. Yes, it'll have access to an app store.

Nokia N9 Rumoured Specs Leak Out, Some People Seem To Disagree

Labels: , , ,

Rumoured specs for the upcoming Nokia N9 smartphone (likely running MeeGo) have just been leaked out. They're actually pretty amazing: a 4-inch OLED display (480 x 800 resolution), a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 CPU, 512MB of RAM, 1GB of system storage, a whopping 64GB of internal storage, a 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities, WiFi b/g/n / Bluetooth 2.1 / aGPS support, and HSPA+ connectivity.

Of course, these are just rumoured specs and Unwired View actually doesn't believe that Nokia decided to go with a 1GHz Snapdragon inside of here. They point out that Nokia specifically mentioned that their Maemo 6 devices would be using TI OMAP 3 CPUs so that may or may not be true. They also believe that the 5MP camera seems a bit low for a new flagship device coming from Nokia - they're thinking either an 8MP or a 12MP sensor will be on board. We'll really just have to wait and see for Nokia to clear the air.
