HTC "Mazaa" Leaks, Could Be Sprint's Trophy and a World Phone

Labels: , , , , ,

Does the phone above look familiar? Well, it should. It's the HTC Trophy that runs Windows Phone 7 and, apparently, Verizon won't be the only carrier that will have the phone. Apparently, Sprint could be launching it as well and it'll be a world phone - just like the Verizon model is rumoured to be. This is unconfirmed right now but rumours are saying that this phone is codenamed the "Mazaa".


Motorola XOOM To Hit Telus On April 19th, HP Touchpad This Summer For $499

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

Two bits of information coming from Mobile Syrup regarding tablets in Canada. First off, the WiFi-only Motorola XOOM which is already available at Best Buy will be hitting Telus on April 19th. Price should be the same, so expect it for $599.99 - that's a 32GB model.

The other tablet is the 9.7-inch HP Touchpad that'll be running webOS 3.0. We already know this one should be launching in the Summer and it's looking like it'll be in June / July and the price tag seems to be $499. Yes, that's lower than the XOOM but I believe that'll be a 16GB model and it only has a front-facing camera. Of course, on the inside the Touchpad packs a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon which is a bit faster than the Tegra 2 in the XOOM. Interesting stuff, for sure!

Sony Ericsson's First Walkman Android Phone (W15) Could Be Available This Quarter

Labels: , , , ,

Sony Ericsson looks like their first Android Walkman phone (W15) will be launching sometime before the end of this quarter (June). This handset is rumoured to feature a 3-inch HVGA touchscreen display, a 3.2MP camera, a 600MHz CPU, a "dedicated music chip", and some version of Android along with the custom UI. Price is unknown right now but the launch could be sometime in May with, hopefully, "Gingerbread". This would likely snag a lot of customers because of the mid-end specifications as well as a low price tag to follow.
