Labels: , , , , , ,

The picture above could be what the HTC Bee looks like when it hits Verizon and Alltel in the US. This smartphone will be running Android 2.2 "Froyo" along with the Sense UI but it won't be a high-end one. It sports a QVGA touchscreen display, a 5MP camera, a 528MHz CPU, and 386MB of RAM. The release date and pricing is still unknown but maybe we'll find out about those important details soon.

Labels: , , , , ,

We've seen it leaked before and this time this one's coming from TMo News again. The smartphone above is the Schubert aka the HTC HD7 which could be headed to T-Mobile USA. This smartphone should feature specs that we already know: a 4.3-inch display, a 5MP camera, 576MB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and Windows Phone 7. What's unknown right now is if this will have HSPA+ connectivity, which would be great. Things should get cleared up very soon though. We'll be seeing this one tomorrow at the New York Microsoft Event, which is Thanksgiving here in Canada. The release date is unknown right now but it should be available for $199.99 on a 2-year contract like all high-end smartphones are.

Update: According to The Unwired, this smartphone has just got approved by the GCF so this pretty much confirms that it'll be at the event tomorrow!


HTC Desire Z Hitting Bell Canada For $499.99 Contract-Free

Labels: , , , , , ,

The HTC Desire Z is going to be hitting Bell in Canada but we already know that. The latest internal screenshot coming from the carrier shows that they intend to release this for $499.99 (likely $499.95 when it actually launches) contract-free. This means that it could launch for $149.95 on a 3-year contract just like when the carrier released the Galaxy S Vibrant in August. The launch date is still unknown but Mobile Syrup is hearing that it could be as early as November 4th. Maybe I'll sell my Captivate for a Desire Z when it comes out, we'll see.

Mobile Syrup's tipsters has just mentioned something really important if you like Koodo Mobile in Canada.

The second handset that the carrier will launch is the LG Cookie Plus which is already available on Telus. This handset sports a 3-inch touchscreen display, a 3MP camera, an FM radio, Bluetooth 2.1 support, and some social integration. This should be launching for $175 contract-free but the release date is still unknown. Look out for both of them soon though.

T-Mobile USA To Offer the Galaxy Tab For $399 and $649 Contract-Free?

Labels: , , , , , ,

Two days ago we heard that Sprint will be launching the Samsung Galaxy Tab for $399 on a 2-year contract along with a $599 contract-free price and it looks like we know just how much T-Mobile USA will be launching it for as well. According to this leaked slide coming from Tmo News, T-Mobile will also offer the Galaxy Tab for $399 on a 2-year contract but it'll cost you $50 more contract-free at $649. Of course, this model doesn't have phone functionalities in the US so maybe you'll be better off with the carrier's Galaxy S variant which is the Vibrant. At least it has a rear and front-facing camera though, something that the iPad lacks at this point.
