Cellular South's Galaxy S Will Be the Samsung Showcase

Labels: , , , , , , ,

We already know that Cellular South in the US of A would be getting the Samsung Galaxy S. All that we didn't know is the exact name but it's now confirmed. Cellular South's Galaxy S will be called the Samsung Showcase. The carrier already has the HTC Desire but the Showcase should be a bit of a step up. This should be available soon.


Motorola's Tegra 2 Smartphone Could Be Named the Terminator, Coming To Multiple Carriers?

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Coming from Android and Me is an interesting piece that you should head over and read. It's about Motorola's long-rumoured Nvidia Tegra 2 powered smartphone. We know that it should be hitting Verizon in the future but, apparently, it could be hitting other carriers too. This smartphone will be launching with Android (possibly 3.0 "Gingerbread") and - like I said - sport a powerhouse of a CPU, the Tegra 2. The rumoured name for this device may be the best, the Terminator. On Verizon, it could be the DROID Terminator.

Asus is still alive in the netbook game with yet another Eee PC, the 1015PN. This netbook features a 10-inch display, a dual-core Intel Atom N550 CPU, and Nvidia's Ion 2 graphics. Other specs are just about standard so there's no point in me spitting them out again. If you're interested then you can check it out on Amazon for $429.99.

Telus Getting the HTC 7 Surround While Rogers Goes For the Samsung Focus

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

Microsoft is holding their event as I type this and two carriers in Canada have just announced that they'll be getting their share of Windows Phone 7 devices. First up is Telus who announced that they'll be getting the HTC 7 Surround. This smartphone features a 3.8-inch touchscreen display, 16GB of internal storage, a 1GHz CPU, Bluetooth / WiFi support, 512MB of ROM, a 576MB of RAM, and a slide-out speaker with Dolby Mobile and SRS WOW HD audio quality. And apparently, this will be available in late October - a bit before the US release! This is pretty awesome, and you can scroll down for what Rogers will be getting.

Just announced is that Rogers will be getting the Samsung Focus. This smartphone features a 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display, a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 5MP AF camera that can record 720p HD video recording. This will likely be available for $199.99 on a 3-year contract but pricing isn't official yet - release date is unknown as well. I think Rogers chose the better smartphone here. Where's Bell in all this?

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

Three more HTC Windows Phone 7 smartphones have just been made official. The first two are above, which we've heard before, it's the HTC 7 Trophy and the 7 Mozart. Both of these smartphones pack a similar  spec sheet, they both share: a WVGA LCD display, a 1GHz MSM8250 CPU, 576MB of RAM, 720p HD video recording, and 8GB of internal storage. The Trophy is said to be the most affordable WP7 handset though, so it features a 5MP camera on the back with an LED flash. This smartphone will be hitting a couple Vodafone overseas so you can look out for that one soon.

The Mozart, on the other hand, sports an aluminum body, a 3.7-inch display, and an 8MP snapper with a xenon flash. This one is going to be hitting Orange in the UK, France, Spain, and Switzerland along with Deutsche Telekom in Germany. You can scroll down for one more smartphone that is actually a new one!

The handset you see above is headed to Sprint in the USA and it's called the HTC 7 Pro.

Unfortunately, if you're going to wait for this one you better be patient. This one isn't expected to launch until the first half of 2011.

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

Let the leaks continue! Thanks to AT&T (here) we now have the official names for a few more Windows Phone 7 handsets. The first one is the i916 / i917 Cetus which will be hitting the carrier as the Samsung Focus. Of course, we already found this out two days ago so this one shouldn't be surprising. The one pictured above appears to be the T8788 which will be launching as the HTC Surround. Last, but not least, there's the LG Quantum which you may know as the C900. All of these smartphones should pack a great spec sheet so you really can't go wrong with any of these.

Update: According to Gizmodo, the specs for the HTC Surround have just leaked out. This smartphone features a 3.8-inch WVGA touchscreen display, 16GB of internal storage (made official on-stage), a 1GHz CPU, 512MB of ROM, 576MB of RAM, Bluetooth 2.1 / WiFi support, a 5MP camera with an LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a kickstand, and a 1,230mAh battery. Oh yes, don't forget that this smartphone also features a slide-out speaker which has Dolby Mobile and SRS WOW HD audio quality, which sounds great. This will be available for $199 as well.

Update: On stage, some AT&T rep said that the LG Quantum features a 3.5-inch touchscreen display, a slide-out QWERTY, 16GB of internal storage, and a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU. The Focus features a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1GHz Snapdragon, 8GB of internal storage, a 5MP camera, and a 9.9mm thin body (the thinnest WP7 handset). Both of these smartphones will be available for $199 on a 2-year contract. The Focus will be available on November 8th and the other two handsets will be available "a few weeks after".

According to the leaked Sprint USA slide you see above, the flip smartphone with the full QWERTY keyboard will be called the BlackBerry Oxford which is a mouthful. The slide also tells us the most important details, the price and date! Apparently, it'll be available starting on October 31st (Halloween) for $99.99 on a 2-year contract - after a $100 mail-in rebate.

At launch, a gray model will be available and in the future RIM will be launching a purple model.

WP7-Based Samsung Omnia 7 (i8700) and LG Optimus 7 Get Official Early

Labels: , , , , , , ,

I knew something like this was going to happen, that's why I decided to wake up a few hours before Microsoft's New York Windows Phone 7 event. Samsung has just made their first WP7-based smartphone official, the morning of the event. The Omnia 7 features a 1GHz Qualcomm QSD8250 CPU, a 4-inch Super AMOLED WVGA display, Bluetooth 2.1 / WiFi 802.11n support, a 5MP AF camera with an LED flash and 720p HD video recording, 8GB of internal storage, an FM radio with RDS support, aGPS, and a 1,500mAh battery. These are definitely some great specs and you should expect all of the other WP7 handsets to follow (roughly) the same guideline.

LG has also made one of their Windows Phone 7 devices official - and then they quickly pulled the information. Their first handset is the Optimus 7 (E900) which features a 3.8-inch WVGA touchscreen display, a 5MP AF camera with an LED flash and 720p HD video recording capabilities, 16GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 2.1 / WiFi, GPS, a digital compass, an ambient light sensor, and a 1,500mAh battery.

Price and release dates for either smartphone haven't been announced yet but we should find out soon.
