In the US, it's going to AT&T and it's rumoured to be launching on March 1st if you believe the image above which is an internal screenshot.

Look what has leaked out again, it's the Nokia X7 running Symbian^3 and it definitely has AT&T branding on it. This handset could actually hit AT&T sometime this month but if it doesn't then you can expect it by the end of this quarter - unless things go horribly wrong. The X7 hasn't been officially announced yet but it should during MWC, so maybe the launch will be sometime next month for AT&T.

Specs for this one include a 4-inch display, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an 8MP camera with a dual-LED flash. Maybe it'll be hitting Canada too.

Labels: , ,

BGR is back at it again, this time detailing the BlackBerry Storm 3 from RIM. This handset is said to feature a 1.2GHz CPU, a 3.7-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen display (480 x 800 resolution), quad-ban GSM/GPRS/EDGE / tri-band UMTS/HSPA connectivity, a 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording, 8GB of internal storage, 512MB of RAM, a microSD card slot, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR / WiFi b/g/n + UMA, an optical trackpad, a 1,230mAh battery, a magnetometer / accelerometer / proximity sensor, BB OS 6.1, OpenGL ES 2.0, and you'll be able to use it as a 3G mobile hotspot.

This definitely looks like the leaks that we saw a couple of months ago and the specs look pretty good for now. By the time it launches in September of this year, it could be behind though with all of the dual-core CPUs and new innovations from Qualcomm we keep hearing about.

Labels: , , , , ,

Could this be true? Is what you see above another Android handset from HTC headed to Verizon? Phandroid seems to think so. This device looks similar to the HTC Thunderbolt but it might be a little bit different. You can bet on it having the Sense UI though because it'll definitely be running the Android OS. Who knows if this handset is real right now but maybe it'll be a Honeycomb phone since this handset reportedly doesn't have any buttons. Maybe an MWC announcement?

Coming from MacNotes is word that the next iPad from Apple could be available in early April. Of course, we're expecting the announcement for this tablet in the next few weeks but the launch date - right now - is rumoured to be April 2nd or the 9th. This isn't far-fetched considering Apple's usual yearly scheme of refreshing their products. Rumoured specs so far include dual-cameras, a higher-resolution display, a USB port, a slight design change, and it might not have the 'Home' button that we've all been accustomed to.
