Pantech P8000 Android Phone Hits the FCC With AT&T 3G Support

Labels: , , , , ,

A new Pantech handset has just hit the FCC and gotten checked out at the Bluetooth SIG. Dubbed the P8000, this handset has 3G support on 820/1900MHz bands which is perfect for AT&T in the US and the three major carriers in Canada. This will be an Android handset but it doesn't look like it'll be a high-end one so it'll be a budget one. Specs, price, and release date are still unknown right now, but if you're a power user then you might want to just move along. Check it out at the Bluetooth SIG and FCC.

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

What you see above is a picture of the HTC Evo Shift 4G (or the Knight or the Speedy). This time we finally get a look at the slide-out QWERTY keyboard of it and it definitely looks like a modification of the Touch Pro 2 which is great news! It looks very easy to type on and even throws in a trackpad in the bottom right corner so that you'll be able to edit whatever you type in case you made a mistake. Rumoured specs are said to be an 8MP camera with 720p HD video recording, a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 3.7-inch LCD WVGA display, Android 2.2 "Froyo", and WiMAX connectivity since it's hitting Sprint.

Labels: , , , ,

3 UK has just announced that they'll be releasing the Nokia E7 in January 2011. Unfortunately, the price hasn't been mentioned yet so we'll have to wait for those details to trickle out. The E7 is definitely one of the best phones that Nokia has ever made with a 4-inch Clear Black AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, an 8MP camera with 720p HD video recording, and the Symbian^3 OS. Other specs include a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 3.5mm headphone jack, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, WiFi b/g/n / Bluetooth 3.0 support, a 680MHz CPU, aGPS, and an HDMI output. It'll be one of the best phones to hit the market, and could be Nokia's saviour device before Symbian^4 comes into play.
