BlackBerry Torch Now Available In Red On SaskTel

Labels: , , , , ,

It looks like the BlackBerry Torch is now available on SaskTel in Canada in the red colour. Of course, the prices stay the exact same so expect to give up $180 on a 3-year contract or $665 contract-free. This one ships with OS 6.0 so that's some good news. Then again, it is a bit much to pay for with all the other (and better) options that are available in Canada. Check it out on Jump.

MetroPCS Launching 4G (LTE) Android-Based Smartphone In Early 2011, Six More By Mid 2011

Labels: , , , , ,

Coming from Fierce Wireless is word that MetroPCS in the US will be launching their first 4G LTE capable smartphone in early 2011. Yes, they already have the Samsung (R900) Craft, but that's not a smartphone. Getting back on track, said smartphone will be running the Android OS (hopefully Gingerbread). Right now there's no word who'll be manufacturing this smartphone but apparently they'll have six more LTE capable smartphones by mid 2011. Next year could be the year where 4G starts to take some market share.

HTC PD29130 Hits the FCC With AT&T 3G Connectivity, Could Be the HD7

Labels: , , , , , ,

Another HTC Windows Phone 7 powered device has just made a trip to the FCC and has gotten approved. We don't know exactly what it is but it has a model name PD29130. Rumour has it that this smartphone is the HTC HD7 but with AT&T 3G compatibility. Either it's headed there or headed North of the border to hit Rogers, Telus, and / or Bell. Interesting indeed. Check it out at the FCC.


Google Nexus S and Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" Now Official, Hitting the US On the 16th

Labels: , , , , , , ,

As expected, Google has made Gingerbread along with the Nexus S official today. Everyone has been waiting a long time for this so this is definitely great news. Version 2.3 "Gingerbread" is official and brings a few new changes over the other versions of Android. If you want a list of new features then just check out Android Developer.

Anyways, let's move onto the Nexus S. It features a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Contour display, 512MB of RAM, WiFi / Bluetooth support, aGPS, a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 CPU, 16GB of internal storage, a 5MP AF camera with 720p HD video recording and a flash, a 3.5mm headphone jack, NFC, a front-facing VGA camera, and ships with Android 2.3 "Gingerbread". Clearly, it's missing two key points. It does not have a dual-core CPU and doesn't even sport a microSD card slot. If you're really into NFC right now then I guess it's worth it. I hope there's another Nexus device in early 2011 (unlikely though).

This smartphone will be available unlocked in the US starting on December 16th exclusively through Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile and in the UK exclusively through Carphone Warehouse starting on December 20th. It'll be available for $529 USD unlocked. Check it out on Google's own website here.

Update: You'll also be able to get it for $199.99 on a 2-year T-Mobile USA contract.


Asus E600 Hits the FCC, Aims To Be Big In the Windows Phone 7 World

Labels: , , , ,

Asus's first Windows Phone 7 based smartphone has just hit the FCC and it looks like a pretty good offering from the company. This handset is said to feature a 5MP camera with an LED flash, a 1,300mAh battery, and what appears to be a front-facing camera. Phone Arena says that the display is somewhere near 4-inches, but that's just guess work with the ruler right there. Now, which carrier is this destined for? Well, the good news is that it has North American potential since it has 850/1900MHz 3G bands which is perfect for AT&T in the US and Rogers, Bell, and Telus in Canada. Check it out at the FCC if you want to know a bit more information.
