BlackBerry Curve "Sedona" Caught In the Wild, Could Also Be the "Apollo"

Labels: , ,

N4BB has just gotten the first pictures of the BlackBerry Curve "Sedona" in the wild. This smartphone reportedly features a high-resolution display (higher than the rest of the Curve line-up at least), 512MB of RAM, and BB OS 6.1 which is still buggy. In case you forgot, BGR got a ton of leaked information on RIM last week and so far these specs are lining up with the Curve "Apollo". The display is said to be sporting a 360 x 480 resolution if that's the case. N4BB also mentions that it's thinner than the BB 9780 which is 14mm; if the "Apollo" and the "Sedona" are the same device then this makes sense because it's said to be 11mm thin. Right now we don't know when this will launch but I'm sure people will go out and pick one up.


Motorola Atrix 4G Hits the FCC With 5GHz WiFi 802.11n Support

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

There's really not much the FCC tells us but it does hint that the launch is coming soon. The FCC filing tells us that the Motorola Atrix 4G does have 5GHz WiFi 802.11n support which is pretty rare for a smartphone. Of course, it'll also have HSPA+ connectivity so that it'll run on AT&T's (in the US) 4G network and Bell's (in Canada) HSPA+ network. Check it out at the FCC.


Another Android-Based HTC Handset Leaks, Could Be the Desire 2

Labels: , , ,

PocketNow has just received another picture of an unknown HTC device (above). The render clearly looks like a black Nexus One without the trackball and what could be a front-facing camera. Specs are unknown right now but some unconfirmed details include a 3.7-inch display (same as the Nexus One) and that it could be the HTC Desire 2. Maybe this one will be at MWC.


Android and Brew-Based Mid-Range HTC Handsets Leak, Aria 2 and Smart 2?

Labels: , , , , ,

Coming from PocketNow (here and here) is word that two new HTC handsets could be on the way. The first handset is said to be a mid-range handset sporting Android (above on the left) that's clearly going to have the traditional start/end call buttons which is extremely rare for an Android phone to have. The other phone on the right is said to be running on Qualcomm's Brew OS but that's all we know. Specs for both of these phones are completely unknown but they could be the Aria 2 and the Smart 2, respectively. Maybe the official announcement will be at MWC.

Labels: , , , , , ,

An internal shot coming from a Mobile Syrup tipster has just shown us that Telus could be planning to launch the HTC Desire HD on February 10th for $499.99 contract-free. That's actually a great price for this handset, but we really need to know what the 3-year contract price will be. This handset features a 4.3-inch LCD display, a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, WiFi / Bluetooth support, GPS, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Android 2.2 with the Sense UI, and an 8MP camera with a dual-LED flash and 720p HD video recording.

Nokia N9 To Launch Next Month With 1.2GHz Atom CPU and MeeGo?

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Nokia is in pretty big trouble when it comes to their global phone market share because Samsung (with the help of Android) and Apple are catching up. Of course, their Symbian market share is dropping as well, because of Android and iOS. They're going to have to do something quite drastic. 

Coming from Prosessori is word that the Nokia N9 will be launching with an Intel Atom 1.2GHz CPU and could also be running the MeeGo OS which is much better than any Symbian OS that has been conjured up to this date. Specs are unconfirmed right now but it'll definitely have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard along with a great camera on the back. Let's hope this one gets unveiled around MWC which takes place next month. It could be Nokia's saviour.

HTC Thunderbolt To Hit Verizon On February 14th?

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

It's unconfirmed right now but Phandroid believes that February 14th will be the day that the LTE (4G) packing HTC Thunderbolt will be hitting Verizon. Their information is coming from various trusted sources and due to the marketing materials that were sent to Verizon's authorized external agents. Don't forget that February 14th is also the day where MWC will officially be getting started so you might want to wait for that event to finish before making your final decision.

Fine Print Says the Dell Streak 7 Could Hit T-Mobile For $330 On Contract

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

Thanks to T-Mobile's website we might know just how much the Dell Streak 7 will be going for when it actually hits the carrier. If you read the fine print on their website for the tablet it says that it will be available as a "$82.50 down payment, plus 3 monthly payments of $82.50, required." If you add that up then it comes to $330 and that could be the 2-year contract price. It's not that much for a Tegra 2 and HSPA+ tablet, but it is going to be launching with just Android 2.2 on-board which is a bit behind.

More Unconfirmed Samsung Galaxy S2 Specs Leak

Labels: , , , , , ,

Weeks before MWC, which starts in mid-February, there's word of more unconfirmed specs for the Samsung Galaxy S successor. Apparently, it'll feature a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED+ WVGA display, an 8MP camera with 1080p HD video recording, a dual-core Samsung Orion CPU, NFC capabilities, 1GB of RAM, a body less than 9mm thick, and Android 2.3 "Gingerbread". These specs seem like they could be achievable but there's no way of confirming whether they're true or not. We'll just have to wait for the big unveiling from Samsung at next month's event.

WSJ Says the Nokia X7 Is Never Going To Hit AT&T

Labels: , , , , ,

So much for AT&T launching the Symbian^3 based Nokia X7 soon. The WSJ is reporting that Nokia has reportedly cancelled the handset's launch because of the lack of the right subsidies and marketing that the carrier was going to do. Oh well, we're sure only a few people will miss this one in all honesty. With the iPhone 4 and the slew of awesome Android devices that the carrier will be launching soon, it doesn't really matter.


Three HTC Tablets By June, First One Dubbed the "Flyer" and Shipping With Android 2.3?

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

Coming from DigiTimes is word that HTC is gearing up to release at least three tablets this year. The first one will reportedly be called the "Flyer" and will be sporting just Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" (reportedly upgradeable to "Honeycomb" whenever it's available) so that's quite a let down since the Motorola XOOM with "Honeycomb" will be available soon. Apparently, the HTC Flyer will be available in March so maybe we'll be seeing it announced at MWC. It's okay though, because the firm has also mentioned that HTC will have two more tablets ready for this June and will be shipping with Android 3.0 "Honeycomb". Sounds good.

Eldar Previews the Sony Ericsson MT15i / Halon / Vivaz 2, Will Be Another XPERIA

Labels: , , , ,

Eldar has just previewed a new handset from Sony Ericsson, the MT15i / Halon / Vivaz 2, but it's pretty clear that it has XPERIA-branding. Fortunately, he mentions that the company has opted to go with Android for the next model instead of the old-school S60 5th Edition OS. The pre-production model that Eldar played with is reportedly thicker and a bit heavier than the original model and it clearly has the natural Sony Ericsson design to it. It looks very similar to their whole XPERIA line-up. The main camera on the back is 8MP and also has an LED flash along with HD video recording; it sports a large front-facing camera as well so it could be more than just mediocre VGA quality.

Moving along, this handset has an HDMI port, a microUSB port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 1,500mAh battery, Bluetooth / WiFi support, 512MB of RAM, a microSD card slot, Android 2.3 with the company's own skin, and around a 4-inch multitouch display with a 480 x 854 resolution. Inside the company decided to go with Qualcomm's MSM7630 chip clocked at 1GHz along with the Adreno 205 GPU which we should be seeing in a lot of future devices from Sony Ericsson. Take a look at the website below to see more pictures and exactly what Eldar thinks of the upcoming handset. Maybe we'll see it at MWC.
