HTC's Android-driven Dream revealed in glorious spy photos
http://www.engadget.com/2008/08/30/htcs-android-driven-dream-revealed-in-glorious-spy-photos/





Sure, we've seen some blurry videos and managed a few stolen glimpses when Andy Rubin demonstrated this beast, but now we've gotten our hands on a slew of pictures showing off a very real T-Mobile-branded Dream in all its Android-running glory. Not only does this confirm the design spied in those FCC docs as well as show off that nearly-done version of Android, but it seems to confirm the fact that this will be headed to T-Mobile, and sooner rather than later judging from the looks of the above device. Needless to say, our inner-geeks are completely geeking out right now. Hit the gallery below for a handful of other views of the phone.

iPhone Life print magazine launches
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/08/30/iphone-life-print-magazine-launches.html


Following all the hype surrounding the iPhone and iPhone 3G launch, guess we all waited for this to happen. The first (and probably the only) print magazine dedicated to Apple’s handset will hit the newsstands on September 9th.

Thaddeus Computing is the publishing company behind the project and for the premier issue they promise 100 pages of hot content. Some of the articles included in the magazine include:
Full coverage of the iPhone 3G
Top software from AppStore
85 hidden features
Best free software and web apps
How to Rip DVDs
Must-have accessories
Safari surprises
Various iPhone profiles
Celebrities with iPhones

Interested iPhone and iPod Touch users will be able to either grab the magazine once it’s released at airports, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Wal-Mart, and other major booksellers and stores nationwide; or subscriber for $25 to receive all issues through 2010. This includes the premier issue and at least 4 issues next year and in 2010. iPhone-friendly digital version of each issue also comes with a subscription.

HTC Opal specifications leaked - HTC Touch replacement
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/09/09/htc-opal-specifications-leaked-htc-touch-replacement.html


In the mobile phone biz, product cycles are measured in months. On that scale, it’s easy to see how one of the hottest handsets to launch last year is struggling to stay relevant among the big-hitting smartphones that have surfaced recently. HTC managed to ship over 2 million of their HTC Touch smartphones with less than a year’s worth of sales, but the HTC Touch Diamond and HTC Touch Pro have all but banished the HTC Touch to the back-burner.

In their bid to stay on top of the touchscreen handset-game, HTC has reportedly given the HTC Touch a bit of a cosmetic and hardware refresh. The HTC Touch will reportedly be succeeded by the HTC Opal. According to leaked internal documents, the HTC Opal should stay true to the HTC Touch’s overall design aesthetic, with a few changes.

The HTC Opal stays true to the HTC Touch’s TI OMAP 200MHz processor and 2.8-inch touchscreen display. The HTC Opal will boast 128MB RAM / 256MB ROM and quad-band (850/900/1800/1900Mhz) GSM connectivity. We should be seeing the HTC Opal launch with the same 802.11 b/g WiFi radio, microSD card slot, 2 megapixel camera, and Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity from the HTC Touch. Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional will be running the show with HTC’s eye-catching and seriously slick TouchFLO 3D interface.

Unfortunately, 3G data connectivity isn’t in the cards for the HTC Opal. As a more budget-friendly handset aimed down-range from its feature-packed siblings - the HTC Touch Diamond and HTC Touch Pro - it makes sense to exclude a 3G radio from the Opal. But, of course, rumors are rumors and all this could change tomorrow.

We’re also hearing that the HTC Opal will be released in multiple colors, it’s just not clear which colors will be available. Pricing and launch details are also a bit on the slim side, so bear with us as we gather more info.

Sony Ericsson's hot G705 slider gets real, YouTube video uploads
http://www.engadget.com/2008/09/09/sony-ericssons-hot-g705-slider-gets-real-youtube-video-uploads/


There it is, Sony Ericsson just went live with its new G705 powerhouse, 3G slider. Just as we heard, it sports a 2.4-inch display with automatic screen rotation courtesy of an accelerometer, WiFi, aGPS with Google Maps for Mobile, 1GB included M2 memory, built-in FM radio, RSS reader, and full HTML browser. It also features a 3.2 megapixel cam that can capture video and then upload directly to YouTube under a new partnership with Google. Also announced in a UMA variant (G705u) -- an SE first -- built exclusive for Orange to bridge GSM and WiFi networks. Headed to the US in Q1 2009.

Update: US version to support GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 and UMTS/HSUPA 850/1900/2100 with Bluetooth A2DP. Orange model available in its markets in early Q4.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 Screenshots Surfacing
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/09/09/sony-ericsson-xperia-x1-screenshots-surfacing.html


Wow, say that post title 10 times fast. I dare you 

While I’m no Windows Media expert, and certainly don’t pretend to be…
There are some new Sony Ericsson Xperia Screenshots that have surfaced that may (or may not) tickle your interest.

The images surfaced from the Swedish site, dailymobile.se. As you can see here, they’ve gone ahead and posted a whole bunch of screenshots for us to enjoy.

Check out the screens featuring YouTube and Google Maps in action. Very interesting.
The Xperia is running Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, and features a resolution of 800×480.
As you can see from the YouTube screenshot, it looks like the new browser manages to pack a lot of content onto the screen.
It should also be noted that the new Internet Explorer for Mobile is capable of playing YouTube videos, AND Windows Media Video.

But enough rambling for now, you can check out the screens
right here.

You can bet there will be a whole lot of info coming out of CTIA this week concerning the Xperia and Windows Mobile 6.1.
While I honestly can’t say I’ve ever been pumped about Windows Mobile news, it will certainly be interesting to see what is new and exciting in Windows Media world.

HTC's Touch HD gets even more dreamy
http://www.engadget.com/2008/09/11/htcs-touch-hd-gets-even-more-dreamy/


While that 480 x 800 pixel display has everybody in a feverish pant,MoDaCo has released even more
unconfirmed specs on the rumored HTC Touch HD guaranted to pound a lustful wave of disruption into your handset purchasing plans.
To start with, it's listed at 115 x 62.8 x 12-mm making it almost exactly the same size as the svelt 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3-mm iPhone 3G. That's a good start.
Now slip GPS, HSDPA data, a 5 megapixel camera (no flash), stylus, microSD slot, 3.5-mm headphone jack,
and 1350mAH battery into the mix and you've got the stuff of serious, WinMo fantasy.
We'll know if it's all legit soon enough as MoDaCo claims a retail date by Christmas. Yes, really. Only thing missing is WiFi... and Android.

Looks like a tight Windows Mobile

World's smallest phone measures 2.46"
http://www.mobile-review.com/fullnews/main/index_eng.shtml


Nokia's N95, released in March of last year, features a 2.6" screen.
By comparison, the world's smallest mobile phone - the Xun Chi 138,measures a microscopic 2.64", just a tad bigger than the N95's screen.

And, surprisingly, it packs in features you wouldn't expect such a tiny device to have - including a 1.3 MP camera, music player, and a very small touchscreen, complete with handwriting recognition. Connectivity-wise, you get dual-band GSM, and that's all. It looks to be only available in China, unsurprisingly.

HTC Touch HD will boast a WVGA screen
http://www.mobile-review.com/fullnews/main/index_eng.shtml



It seems someone at HTC has spilled the beans on another Touch-branded communicator - this time around it's codenamed "HD".
As the spec sheet implies, this phone carries a whopping 480x800 pixel screen onboard, and naturally HTC's trademark TouchFLO 3D finger-friendy user interface. Other than that, the HTC Touch HD is pretty much a mystery - it's still unclear when it'll be announced or what other features it will have.

Spec sheet of the HTC Touch HD (so far):
3G support
Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional OS
Qualcomm 7201A CPU running at 528 MHz
WVGA display
512 Mb ROM, 256 Mb RAM
microSD memory expansion slot
5 Mpix camera
GPS receiver
1350 mAh battery
Dimensions: 115x62.8x12 mm

Sony Ericsson Alicia spotted in the wild again
http://www.mobile-review.com/fullnews/main/index_eng.shtml

Once again the Web has got some more spy photos to buzz about -
this time around, the mysterious Sony Ericsson Alicia, more known as the W707, has been snapped and outed online.
As far as its specs are concerned, the only thing that's known for sure is that it will come armed with a 3.2 Mpix camera and a quirky outer display.
Unfortunately, there are no other clues on when it will be released or what its feature pack will look like.

HTC unveils HTC Touch HD - Huge WVGA display, 5 megapixel camera
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/09/15/htc-unveils-htc-touch-hd-huge-wvga-display-5-megapixel-camera.html

HTC, not one to let product leaks go un-validated, has today announced their HTC Touch HD. Following on the previous leak that had HTC preparing a WVGA touchscreen monster to add to its popular HTC Touch smartphone portfolio, HTC has confirmed that the HTC Touch HD is indeed on its way to stir up the touchscreen smartphone market. The HTC Touch HD is being billed as HTC’s entertainment-focused Touch smartphone toting a huge WVGA touchscreen display, 5 megapixel camera, GPS and TouchFLO 3D.

The HTC Touch HD’s large, bright, and crisp WVGA display is expected to give other large-screened touchs-based smartphones a run for their money. With 3.8-inches of eye-dazzling real-estate, the gigantic widescreen VGA display will easily thrust the HTC Touch HD to its rightful place at the head of the touchscreen smartphone table. And, the 5 megapixel auto-focusing camera could give other high-megapixel cameraphones some serious competition.

HTC isn’t, apparently, going to take Apple’s success with their iPhone and iPhone 3G lying down. The HTC Touch HD goes straight for the jugular with that range-topping and market-leading 3.8-inch WVGA display (we still can’t get over the huge WVGA display!). The 5 megapixel camera (with autofocus) sets its sights on other high-end cameraphones with the intention of being the media-oriented handset of choice among power users. The quad-band (850/900/1800/1900Mhz) GSM/EDGE and dual-band (850/2100Mhz) WCDM/HSPA radios make sure that the HTC Touch HD will be getting its connectivity-on in whatever country you could possibly find yourself traveling through. And, with 512 MB ROM / 288 MB RAM on board and expandable storage capacity via the microSD card slot, the HTC Touch HD ensures that you’ll have plenty of room to take your pictures, videos, and music with you wherever you go.

HTC Touch HD

Of course, HTC has endowed their HTC Touch HD with all the high-end trimmings we’ve come to expect from our favorite Windows Mobile smartphone maker. The HTC Touch HD sports aGPS, WiFI, Bluetooth 2.0, and a Qualcomm® MSM7201a™ CPU clocked at 528 MHz that should make quick work of running the Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional OS with the TouchFLO 3D UI.

Did we mention the HTC Touch HD featuring a humongous 3.8-inch WVGA display? Cupertino is going to have to play a little game of “catch-up” with their next-generation iPhone (iPhone Pro?)…

Here’s a quick rundown of the HTC Touch HD’s spec-sheet:

·         Size: 115 x 62.8 x 12 mm
·         Weight: 146.4 grams/5.164 oz with battery
·         Connectivity: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
Dual-band WCDMA / HSPA:900/2100MHz.
HSDPA 7.2 Mbps
·         Operating system: HTC TouchFLO 3D with Windows Mobile® 6.1 Professional
·         Display: 3.8 inch Wide Screen VGA screen (480 x 800 WVGA)
·         Camera: 5.0 megapixel with auto focus – Second Camera: VGA
·         Internal memory: 512 MB flash; 288 MB RAM
·         Memory card: microSD™ memory card (SDHC™ capable)
·         WLAN: 802.11b/g
·         Bluetooth®: 2.0 with EDR
·         GPS: GPS/AGPS
·         Interface: HTC ExtUSB™ (mini-USB and audio jack in one; USB 2.0 High-Speed)
·         Battery: 1350 mAh
·         Talk time: WCDMA: Up to 390 minutes*** / GSM: Up to 310 minutes***
·         Standby time: WCDMA: Up to 450 hours*** / GSM: Up to 390 hours***
·         Chipset: Qualcomm® MSM7201a™ 528 MHz


We should be seeing the HTC Touch HD landing on European shores in Q4 2008, with the rest of the globe following suit shortly afterwards.

Contract Free iPhones for the Holiday Season?
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/09/21/contract-free-iphones-for-the-holiday-season.html


Rumors are now surfacing that the in-store only iPhone 3G activation policy will be lifted. With the holiday season fast approaching, this looks to be a pretty darn smart move by Apple, if indeed it is true. I hope Apple has boosted production on the 3G, as you can bet mom, pop, sister and brother will be buying up 3G’s for holiday gifts.

Apple store employees are reporting that a fifth option named ‘Home’ has appeared in their EasyPay systems when selling an iPhone 3G. On top of that, there may be a refresh and price drop on the 8GB models… Whenever shortages occur it is usually a sign of an impending change or price drop.

With the new iPod line and these supposed changes to the iPhone… It’s looking to be a huge holiday season for Apple.

Meet the T-Mobile G1
http://www.engadget.com/2008/09/22/meet-the-t-mobile-g1/

Uh, c'mon guys -- this is a little ridiculous. Now typically, you want to keep this sort of thing under wraps until the day of your event, but it seems like the cats and kittens at T-Mobile can't contain themselves. Yes, you're looking at the first official product shot of the G1 Android phone ever. Enjoy it.

Update: TmoNews has just uncovered new specs and info on the phone. Here's what they've got so far: the phone is 4.6 x 2.16 x 0.63 inches, weighs 5.6 ounces, features a 480 x 320 HVGA display, sports 3G (obviously), GPS, has a 3.1-megapixel camera, supports up to 8GB of memory (though no format is mentioned), and will feature 5 hours of talktime with 130 hours of standby. Strangely, the phone won't do video capture (what?), won't have stereo Bluetooth, will require a Gmail account, and won't be sold at stores outside of a 2-5 mile radius of T-Mobile's 3G coverage areas. That last bit sounds a little odd to us, but we're guessing a lot of the functionality of this device will be shot in non-3G regions.

Nokia N96 review roundup
http://www.engadget.com/2008/09/22/nokia-n96-review-roundup/


When the N95 was released, it was all but universally adored. Even today, nearly two full years after it was first revealed, it's still one of the most respected in Nokia's lineup. From the get-go, we knew the N96 was more evolutionary and less revolutionary; after all, the two handsets even look alike. The general consensus this time around is about what we expected: the N96 is a fine phone, and a worthy successor, but probably not worth the high price it's currently demanding. Oh sure, the call quality was stupendous, battery life was satisfactory and the multimedia playback was superb, but some critics were a bit displeased with the fit and finish given the premium price tag. All in all, don't go into the links below expecting any huge surprises -- the N96 is a nicely revamped, high-priced N95, and if that's what you're looking for, there doesn't seem to be any underlying issues that should hold you back from indulging.

Apple now selling iPhone 3G unlocked in Hong Kong
http://www.engadget.com/2008/09/26/apple-now-selling-iphone-3g-unlocked-in-hong-kong/


If you can't get your goods into China via the front door, there's always the back.
Apple is now selling its iPhone 3G unlocked via its on-line Apple Store in Hong Kong.
The 8GB model sells for HK$5,500 (about US$694) or HK$6,200 (about $797) for the 16 gigger.
Already available since July 11th with a local Hutchison Telecommunications contract, this is the first time that Apple has sold its device unlocked in Hong Kong:
"iPhone 3G purchased at the Apple Online Store can be activated with any wireless carrier.
Simply insert the SIM from your current phone into iPhone 3G and connect to iTunes 8 to complete activation."
Unfortunately for the 1 billion mainland Chinese, the terms and conditions limit sales to those in Hong Kong only -- not that the gray market cares about T&Cs.
It'll be interesting to see if Apple extends the unlocking more broadly (presumably as exclusivity deals expire)
or if this is strictly a local phenomena, perhaps in direct response to having its WiFi and the imperialistic 3G
gutted from handsets sold under Apple's rumored China Mobile deal.

SanDisk 16GB MicroSD Cards Arrive in Stores
http://gizmodo.com/5054598/sandisk-16gb-microsd-cards-arrive-in-stores?cpage=1&sort=ASC#viewcomments


While SanDisk has made no official announcements,
their 16GB MicroSD cards are popping up for sale at various internet retailers (at various prices, we might add).
Ranging from $80 to $220 (we'd go with the $80), prices will settle with more availability.
But we're pretty excited to toss an iPhone's worth of flash storage into any fancy smartphone we like.
Plus, whenever we pop a tiny MicroSD card into one of our gadgets, it always feels like we're in the future. [mymemory via internettabletalk Thanks tipsters!]

Sandisk to release a 128GB microSDHC card within 3 years
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/10/20/sandisk-to-release-a-128gb-microsdhc-card-within-3-years.html


Think that 16GB microSDHC memory card is cool? How about 32GB? Scrap that, how about 128GB? Well, SanDisk will release such a product within three years. That’s in 2011 for those of you who don’t want to count.

Such a memory card in your mobile phone would turn a handset into a portable disk drive. Apparently, 128 gigs is enough to hold 134 full-length Indian movies, close to 20,000 high resolution photos and 16,000 songs, or the same in any other combinations. Suddenly, all those phone with 8 megapixel cameras that can record videos in VGA resolution doesn’t look weird. Yeah, we need even more megapixels and way more bandwidth - read LTE!

Sony Ericsson C902 review: Cyber-touch
http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_c902-review-290.php


Full steam into the megapixel chase, Sony Ericsson C902 is trying to show off its best before the 8 megapixel monsters start stealing the show.
The Cyber-shot pedigree, touch-controlled camera and metal outfit are true predator stuff and
now that we have a retail unit in our hands it's time to revisit our pre-release preview of the device and
see if there are any chinks in its armor that may turn predator to prey.


Key features:
5 MP autofocus camera with unique active lens cover and touch controls
Slim and stylish metal case
Smile detection, image stabilizer, geo-tagging (via cell-ID)
Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and HSDPA (3.6 Mb)
Media Center, Smart search, Manage Messages, extended TrackID
Enhanced user interface
Scratch resistant 2" TFT 256K colors display
FM radio with RDS
Bluetooth (with A2DP)
Basic multi-tasking support
Smart dialing
160 MB built-in memory, M2 card support

Main disadvantages:
Smallish screen
Images suffer excessive sharpening and purple fringing
Poor video recording capabilities
Slide-up lens cover collects massive amounts of dust
No office document viewer


Revisiting the C902 is also worth it as a taster of what's to come. It's been quite a while since our first glimpse, but Sony Ericsson didn't just sit on their hands in the meantime. The company made the very first announcement of an 8-megapixel cameraphone - the C905, which we previewed this summer. The other exciting prospect is the Walkman-meet-Cybershot W902.

Now, while the two sharpshooters above are yet to be baptized by fire, our Sony Ericsson C902 is right in the thick of action. The ironclad Cyber-shot is the thinnest 5 MP cameraphone on the market and that makes it quite an attractive deal.

Sony Ericsson Hikaru Back on the Map
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/10/23/sony-ericsson-hikaru-back-on-the-map.html



Sony had reportedly put the brakes on surrounding a new device called thie ‘Hikaru’. It was an 8MP device that packed in a lot of features. Well, what should I notice today but more rumors popping up surrounding the Hikaru. Looks like the device will become a reality after all.

The Sony Ericsson Hikaru is a really high-end touchscreen camera phone. Look for it to feature at least 8GB of internal storage, and a slider to feature a QWERTY keyboard for your texting and emailing pleasure.

While full details, specs and pricing are of course unavailable, you can clearly see from the mockup above that the device looks pretty hot. When I first saw it, I thought to myself ‘Hmmm… sort of similar to the Samsung Instinct!’…. don’t you think? Somewhat similar in form-factor for sure.

I should note however that the image was created by the folks at Unwired View. The actual device will probably look somewhat similar to this… The folks at UR did a pretty good job on the mockup don’t you think?! Stay tuned for more news on the Hikaru!

Casio's 8.1 megapixel W63CA with 480 x 800 pixel OLED flips out in Japan
http://www.engadget.com/2008/10/27/casios-8-1-megapixel-w63ca-with-480-x-800-pixel-oled-flips-out/


We had a chance to gaze through the wireframe of this 8.1 megapixel Casio W63CA Exilim cellphone back in August courtesy of the FCC's finest. Now check it in high-gloss, plastic flesh. The latest Japanese super-phone squeezes 480 x 800 pixel into a 3.1-inch OLED display. Let that sink in for a second... the very same 384,000 pixels on a display smaller than the 3.8-inch LCD heralded by the Touch HD. The camera features a wide-angle lens, 9-point auto focus, face detection, anti-shake, and a YouTube video mode that records VGA video at 30fps to microSD. All this in a Japanese-only flip measuring 110 x 50 x 17.4 ~ 22-mm when it launches in early November.
