T-Mobile myTouch2 or myTouch Slide shows its less-than-pretty face?

We know that many of you T-Mobile Android fans have stuck by the G1 for one reason, and one reason only — a physical QWERTY keyboard. If you haven’t jumped ship to Verizon for the DROID and some button-clicking goodness, you’ll be happy to know that the HTC myTouch 2 for T-Mobile, or myTouch Slide, will have just about everything you want in an Android device and then some. From the images, assuming they’re the real deal, the physical keyboard looks like it might be a pleasure to use with well-defined spacing and will resemble HTC’s Touch Pro2 styling. As far as specs go, here’s what is known so far:
  • 1300mAh battery
  • MicroSD memory cardslot is accessible without battery removal. It is a push to insert and push to remove design.
  • Optical trackpad.
  • Camera with LED flash.
  • 3.5 mm Headset Jack
  • Slide-out 4 row QWERTY keyboard
  • 320×480 screen resolution.
  • ARM11 processor.
Nothing terribly impressive as far as hardware, or at least nothing you’re not used to. We’re also hoping that the image is just of a prototype and not a final design, because it looks like it fell from the top of the fug tree and hit every branch on its way down.

Nokia updates N97 with free Ovi Maps, just as promised

It was only a week ago when Nokia shook us with its free turn-by-turn navigation update, but the poor old N97 got left out in the cold. Not any more though, folks! In fact, the new Ovi Maps for N97 was delivered one day earlier than promised, and can be found "through the software update client in the device." Thanks, Nokia, but don't forget your N900 fans, too.

Windows Mobile 7 megarumor: LG Apollo and HTC Obsession running flagship '720p' specs, Zune Phone Experience

Alright, this is some wild, heavy stuff, but the folks at WMExperts have compiled what they believe to be true about Windows Mobile 7, including a whole bunch of previously undisclosed info and even a couple of flagship phones. We can't vouch for the rumors, but there's a ring of truth to plenty of it, and most of the rest of it we want to be true. First off, Microsoft is approaching the revision with two flavors: Windows Phone Seven Business Edition, and Windows Phone Seven Media Edition. The former is a stripped down OS that will allow OEM overlays like HTC's Sense UI, and includes lower minimum specs -- though a WVGA "minimum" is nothing to get angry about. Meanwhile, it sounds like the Media Edition is the quasi-"Zune Phone" we've been dreaming of, with a heavy emphasis on HD media playback and capture, along with social networking activities like Xbox Live, Facebook and Twitter. Other features include cloud-style services on the Business Edition side for live manipulation of stored data, a long with a location-aware platform dubbed "Orion."

This all sounds great, but what's really exciting is what Microsoft is dictating should be in some of these Media Edition phones. The first two to break cover are the LG Apollo and HTC Obsession. The Apollo is a 3G worldphone (EV-DO and HSDPA) that runs a 1.3GHz Qualcomm QSD8650 processor and a 3.8-inch AMOLED 1280 x 720 WXGA display. The phone also is purported to have a 10 megapixel camera capable of 720p video recording. Meanwhile, HTC's HSDPA-limited Obsession runs a mere 1GHz Qualcomm QSD8250 proc, with a 3.7-inch AMOLED display, 5 megapixel camera and 720p video recording. The Apollo is due in August or September of this year, with the Obsession following in October. Now, some of these specs are admittedly suspect, like the WXGA resolution on the Apollo and that seemingly 10 megapixel sensor, but we want to believe.

As for what we know to be true? Well, we know we'll see something at MWC next month, unless Robbie Bach is just joshing around, and we also know HTC has confirmed its involvement with Windows Mobile 7 -- lending some credence to rumors of the Sense UI sticking around for a new-generation -- and that LG has gone on (and quickly off) record as well saying it'll have a WinMo 7 phone in September. It's all a lot more vague than the pages of specs we're staring at now, but it's clear that something is brewing. Hit up the source link for the full nitty gritty.

The Motorola Shadow: a Droid For the Light Side?

There's not a whole lot that's certain about these images, which popped up at Mobile01, showing Motorola's Shadow as a friendlier-looking Droid. But they're interesting.
These aren't the first rumors that have trickled out about the Motorola Shadow. One leak, a few weeks ago, pegged it as having a super-thin body and a 4.3-inch, 800 x 484 screen. These renders, of admittedly dubious provenance, suggest a more Droid-like form factor, except with a white keyboard and wrist strap.
Mobile01 also suggests that the Shadow could be a candidate for the next official Google Phone and thus the designation of Nexus Two. Maybe, but it seems a little too early for Google to be picking the Nexus One successor. And what of HTC?

My Thoughts on Google Nexus One

So finally Google decided to carry cell phones into there vast money making market. My Nexus One just arrived today and I got to tell you that it is really awesome. The very first feature I used was the voice command. It's about 80% correct and I really helps a lazy person like me to get my text across to my friends. I can say "Let's party tonight" and ... the Nexus One is so smart that it types it so fast. What I really need though is a plastic cell phone case or any Nexus One accessories for my phone.

Samsung i5700 Galaxy Spica Android phone hands-on

Earlier this week Samsung's i5700 Galaxy Spica made its U.S. debut, and we had a chance to sit down with the Samsung team to go hands-on with the phone and learn a little bit more about its features.
The i5700 is powered by an 800MHz processor and runs Android 1.5. It measures 115mm x 57mm x 13.2mm (4.5in x 2.2in x .5in) in size and comes with standard smartphone amenities like aGPS, WiFi, and a 3 megapixel camera. It also has a large 3.2-inch 480 x 320 pixel WVGA touchscreen AMOLED display. The i5700 Galaxy Spica comes comes with a 1500mAh battery, and support for 3G network bands, though a carrier deal has yet to be announced.
This i5700 has been available in Europe for some time, and the model we saw looked pretty much like the EU release. In terms of features, the device as we saw it looked more like a Moment rather than featuring any sort of TouchWiz user interface or any other customizations. The build of the phone is solid, we rather liked the d-pad controller, and the display was really brilliant.
There's still no official word as to when the device will be available in the United States.

Google Nexus One hands on

Alright boys and girls, we’ve just got our hands on a Google Nexus One of our own and here are some first impressions as well as photos… As light as the phone is, it’s not flimsy, and seems to be incredibly well manufactured. This is HTC we’re talking about, after all. The screen is beautiful — gorgeous really — and is very responsive. It’s also very fast with that 1GHz CPU powering the phone, and we’ve been zipping through apps and screens without a single hiccup. Check out some hands on photos in the gallery, and look for our upcoming review! Don't take any chances with a naked phone. Make sure you get the full experience with the Google Nexus one accessories.
