Mobile News: Today’s Highlights

It has been another exciting week for the mobile phone industry and if you have been having keeping tabs on all the latest news updates, here’s a quick list of all the important things you would not want to miss out on.

First off is the launch of the Windows Phone 7. The new mobile platform from Microsoft is officially out but the first handsets to showcase the OS will not be out until the next few days. Expect to see plenty of sold out pre-orders for some of the latest devices like the HTC HD7 and the Samsung Omnia 7.

Samsung’s also got another killer handset on the way. The Wave II has just been confirmed for a launch in the UK this coming holiday season. The massive update to the first device that brought to us the Bada operating system and is taking away all that disappointment high end smart phone fans had with the Wave 2 and Wave 2 Pro (though we can expect those two devices to sell significantly better). The new phone will also be showcasing super LCD technology as a replacement for the super AMOLED screen on the older Wave.

In more Samsung news, the i9000 Galaxy S is getting its much awaited update to the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system. After a long wait, the OS if finally moving up to match that of the HTC Desire keeping the Galaxy S as still one of the most coveted Android devices around. If the impressive new firmware update is not enough, let us remind you that this phone also packs a 4 inch super AMOLED touch screen display.

HTC’s previously exclusive Aria handset has finally made it to UK shores. And like many other smart phones that were deemed to be US carrier exclusive, a quick name change (to the HTC Gtatia) was all it took to bring the handset over locally.
