Upcoming: NFC Activation for C7 and Updates for Legend and Streak

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

The 5 inch Dell Streak handset is one of the most intriguing smart phones around. After all, with the massive 5 inch touch screen display on the device, it is easy to mistake the overall face of the phone for one of the older, bulkier mobile devices of yesteryear.

Of course, the super slim case makes it known that this is simply a high end phone with a really big screen –much like a touch screen tablet. In fact, many are referring to the Streak as a mini tablet and the terminology is quite fitting. With the smallest tablets ranging around 7 inches, a smart phone with a 5 inch screen certainly has plenty of similarities. Anyway, the much anticipated upgrade to Android 2.2 Froyo for this intriguing device is available now.

HTC’s Legend handset is finally getting an update to the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system, as well. With initial plans to leave the device at 2.1 Éclair now scrapped, owners of this impressive high end smart phone have something new to look forward to. The Legend is basically a watered down version of the HTC Desire. Both devices use AMOLED touch screen technology, though the Legend’s screen is smaller at 3.7 inches. The device also comes with a 5 mega pixel camera.

Finally, Nokia has confirmed that the C7’s near field communications chip will be activated in an upcoming update. Though no specific date has been announced, this has excited many in the tech industry. NFC technology can be used in a very wide range of applications, making this handset something that users will certainly want to play around. Interfacing with a wide range of gadgets is expected to be one of the primary new functions that NFC will serve.

Apple is also heavily investing in NFC technology as well, having recently bought a specialist company earlier this year. Expect to see NFC to appear in more devices in the coming months.

Not WP7: Today’s Other Highlights

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Sure, we all know the big news about Windows Phone 7 and how Microsoft’s new mobile platform is going to shake the phone industry’s roots. But putting aside all the hype and hoopla, there are a few other important news highlights that are also worth talking about. Here’s a quick look at all the other news that are not WP7 related.

First up, Samsung has just unveiled a new smart phone, the Galaxy K. For now, the device is only available in Korea, but considering that this is the Android Galaxy handset series that we are talking about, a local release in the UK is quite likely. The only question now is when Samsung would actually take the time to bring the handset over.

Considering the initial specs of this handset, one could almost say that it is a Galaxy S Lite of sorts. The phone packs a 1GHz CPU, a 3.7 inch AMOLED capacitive touch screen and of course, the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system. From the Samsung launch event, it has been shown that the Galaxy K is available in two colors: black and white variants.

Nokia is also launching a new handset, and this one is being done locally; a Symbian^3 smart phone, the Nokia C7. This little touch screen smart phone brings a 3.5 inch AMOLED display, an 8 mega pixel snapper and about 8 GB of internal memory. This will be the very first time we will all get to try out the Symbian^3 OS. Also, expect this little number to be slightly cheaper than the high end Nokia N8.

Lastly, going back to a little bit of Android news, it appears that Google is not entirely happy with how the HTC Desire HD and Desire Z have turned out. According to reports, the two high end Androids are getting a launch delay until the issues are resolved. Some believe that the delay is simply meant to move the launch away from the WP7 event.

Upcoming Mobile Phones: the Quick List

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Between the events of two major phone manufacturers to the upcoming launch of the Windows Phone 7 operating system, there has been a great influx of new devices being confirmed for the months of September and October. To give everyone a nice quick recap, here is a quick list of everything so far.

Nokia’s N8 Symbian^3 is definitely launching by the end of September or on the first week of October. The N-series title bearer is expected to lose to the upcoming Nokia N9 which is slated for a December release –despite the fact that he N9 was a no show at the Nokia World Event.

Three new Symbian^3 devices has also been announced by the Finnish mobile phone maker. The C7, E7 and C6-01 handsets all make use of the Symbian^3 operating system. Another C-series handset has also been released in the form of the Nokia C3 Touch and Type edition.

Alcatel has popped out of nowhere to announce the upcoming OT-980 Android smart phone. The device will be bringing mid range specs and the Android 2.1 Éclair. Carphone Warehouse has confirmed that they would have this handset available sometime in October.

In the meanwhile T-Mobile has confirmed that it will be offering pre-orders for the HTC Desire HD and the LG Optimus One handset. The two Android smart phones are expected to arrive next month.

Speaking of the Desire HD, HTC has shown off that device along with the Desire Z at an event held in London. The new phones were supported by the latest version of the HTC Sense UI which featured new security options for users.

On the Windows Phone 7 home front, several devices have already been confirmed for the OS. Phone makers HTC, Motorola, Asus, LG and Samsung are among the lineup of phone makers that are expected to have devices ready on day one of the new platform’s launch.

Nokia C7 in Images, Samsung Galaxy S in Trouble

Friday, August 27th, 2010

It seems that the Samsung GT i9000 Galaxy S Android smart phone is having some issues when it comes to connecting the handset to a computer –sadly, the problem’s symptoms come in the form of completely wiping the device’s memory and content storage. This means that the Korean phone maker better have some quick fix on the way.

According to reports, the Galaxy S Android smart phone will connect to a computer through the use of special software. However, when this software detects files in the Galaxy S that uses filenames that are over 16 characters long (we assume that the count also includes the file extension as well) a memory wipe is activated.

Now, this little function could be functional as a remote feature on the handset which would allow owners to easily wipe the data clean if the device is left behind in a public location. But right now, Samsung needs to help out their users; and considering how important the Galaxy S is, they should be cranking out a solution as soon as they can.

In other news, images of Nokia’s upcoming C7 Symbian smart phone have been circulating online and from what we have seen, the device looks a lot like your typical Nokia touch screen smart phone and in terms of specs, it truly is a lite version of the upcoming Nokia N8.

Still, smart phone fans on a budget might want to try out the C7 thanks to its sleek design, ergonomic form factor and of course, the new Symbian^3 operating system. According to reports, the new OS focuses heavily on the touch screen UI and of course, media playback.

According to reports, the C7 will be launch shortly after the Nokia N8, which places the launch window sometime between October and November this year.
