a good way to make better use of your phone is to overclock the processor.
my blackjack II is overclocked to 275 MHz and makes it run like a fucking champ  8)

A friend of mine gave me his old Qtek 8300... which run WM5 standard.


I can see that you're pretty much on top of things when it comes to WM....  ;)
so do you know if there's a way for me to install WM6 or even 6.1 on it?

I know about that site/forum... not really checked it though.  ;)
Will browse it and look for info. The phone is dope,shit got wifi and all.... but is small as a regular phone,not a brick like most if not all smartphones.  :-X :-[ :laugh:
But the OS (and UI) is dated.... anyway thanks,will do some research.
(by the way the phone is also known as HTC Tornado,i-Mate SP5,SPV C600)

iFone x1 clone mixes Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 with the iPhone
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/12/06/ifone-x1-clone-mixes-sony-ericsson-xperia-x1-with-the-iphone.html
Here’s what happens when certain Chinese handset cloners makers use their imagination. A new device is created combining best of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 and the iPhone, or at least that supposed to be the idea here. However, we don’t see this as a best solution — if we could even argue something like that in a clone device — the iFone x1 lacks full QWERTY keyboard from Sony Ericsson’s smartphone and that’s one element I would love to see on the iPhone.

Anyway, the device is apparently running Windows CE and among other things sports
two SIM card slots, FM radio, some media player and who knows/cares what else.

A short demo video of iFone x1 in action

Mystery hybrid phone pops up all over the Internets
http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2008/12/08/mystery-hybrid-phone-pops-up-all-over-the-internets/


We’re not quite sure what to make of this beast, but it’s all over the blogosphere and our guess is as good as any for now. It looks like a weird hybrid of a Helio Ocean, Palm Centro/Treo, Sony Mylo and touch of Open Moko. Judging by the unusual number of smudges on the screen, common sense points to a touchscreen / QWERTY combo. Your standard five-way toggle and smart buttons are there but when the T-swivel phone opens up, you see a mini-mouse pad and left and right mouse buttons. The keys look like the firm, bubbly keys we’d see on the Palm Centro or Treo Pro, which leads our buddy Dieter Bohn of TreoCentral to think that this might be the new “Roteo” that’s been in the rumor mill. Regardless of what this phone turns out to be, we’re afraid it’s going to be slapped onto our “do not want” list unless the final version gets some major tweaks.

Intel Hopes to Bring Free Energy to Mobile Devices (PC World)
http://tech.yahoo.com/news/pcworld/20081206/tc_pcworld/intelhopestobringfreeenergytomobiledevices

Intel on Friday said it is researching technology to harvest free energy from the environment, which could lead to devices such as mobile phones running for indefinite periods without recharging.

The company is working on tiny sensors that can capture energy from sources such as sunlight and body heat. In the future, such energy could be used to power personal electronic devices such as cell phones.

There are already watches available that are powered by body heat, as well as prototype smartphones with display screens that double as solar cells, said Justin Rattner, chief technology officer at Intel, during a press event. Intel is also looking at powering a mobile phone by harvesting the energy the user generates by moving the phone's trackball. The radiation of cell phone or TV signals might also be used to power devices.

"Wouldn't it be nice if, in fact, you were able to go almost indefinitely without charging the battery, if you were able to scavenge enough free energy from the environment?" Rattner said.

Intel's initial efforts revolve around the sensors, which could power themselves using free energy. Recharging themselves by scavenging free energy allows the sensors to continuously record and transmit readings over wireless networks, without any human involvement.

For example, an accelerometer buried in the wall of a building could automatically recharge itself by harvesting the energy of radiation from a cell phone tower, allowing it to continuously take and transmit readings of the building's movement.

"It wouldn't have any batteries, you wouldn't have to come out and service them, and you don't have to run any power. They are completely self-contained, and most importantly, self-powered as a result of scavenging energy from the environment," Rattner said.

Intel has also designed a self-charging neural implant that can monitor bodily functions and transmit its readings wirelessly, Rattner said.

"I never have to ... come along with some sort of external fixture and have to recharge this. These become ... install-and-forget systems, because they can scavenge energy from the environment and power themselves up," Rattner said.

Intel has not marketed such a sensor yet, as its research is still ongoing, Rattner said. Sensors use just a fraction of the power demanded by typical mobile devices, and it may take a while before the energy-harvesting technology can power larger items.

For now, the research is intended to provide a broader view of energy harvesting, and many Intel product groups are showing interest in it.

"We haven't been driving it as an Intel product; it's not on anyone's road map at this point. It's part of our broader effort in both sensors and energy harvesting," Rattner said.

Vertu Boucheron 150 created to celebrate 150th anniversary of the French jewelry house
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/12/10/vertu-boucheron-150-created-to-celebrate-150th-anniversary-of-the-french-jewelry-house.html

Here’s a phone very few of us will be able to afford. It’s the Vertu Boucheron 150, created to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the French Boucheron jewelry house.

Apparently, the phone is built out of a single piece of massive gold!
Furthermore, it is said that it requires more than 2,000 hours to produce a single unit, hence making us belief this will be an extremely limited edition handset.
And since its price is rumored to be more than $30,000, the “limited” part makes perfect sense
— there are no that many individuals ready to pour out such an amount for a mobile phone.

Anyway, the Vertu Boucheron 150 comes in a luxury wooden case, but we’re not familiar with its specs.
Guess that part is not that important with devices like this one…




^^^^something for Elano? ^^^ :P :P

Mobiado Professional 105GMT Gold is a weird looking mechanical watch mobile phone
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/12/09/mobiado-professional-105gmt-gold-is-a-weird-looking-mechanical-watch-mobile-phone.html


Mobiado is out with yet another ultra expensive mobile phone called Mobiado Professional 105GMT Gold.
As “usual” when it comes to Mobiado, the new device is made out of
high quality (read: expensive), materials like sapphire crystal, Ebony wood and gold
(the phone’s frame is CNC-machined and finished with a 24-Carat gold coating).

However, what sets this Mobiado apart from their other products and what at
the same time makes the device look kinda weird-ish is that it combines a mobile phone with a mechanical watch, incorporated into the lower side of the case.
The “watch part” is also luxurious and has 25 jeweled bearings that are gold-painted and protected by Mobiado’s 3D shock absorbing system.

Rest of the specs include quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) radio,
dual-band 3G (850/2100 MHz), 2-inch QVGA screen, Bluetooth 1.2 + EDR, 2 megapixel camera, 1GB of on-board memory.
Nokia’s Series 40 5th Edition platform is running the show in the back.

As for the size, the Mobiado Professional 105GMT Gold measures 128×47.5×10.6 mm and has a weight of 241.4 grams.
The price was not announced, but we do know the phone/watch will be available to 50 quickest buyers, only.


^^another one for Elano ^^^^  :P

Breaking: Sony Ericsson joins Open Handset Alliance
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/12/09/breaking-sony-ericsson-joins-open-handset-alliance.html


Sony Ericsson has just announced that it has joined Google-led Open Handset Alliance. No dates for the first devices were given,
but we are sooo looking forward to the CES and Mobile World Congress when hopefully we’ll see first Sony Ericsson Android handsets being unveiled.

Here’s what Sony Ericsson’s CVP and head of Creation and Development, Rikko Sakaguchi,
said: “Sony Ericsson is excited to announce its membership of the Open Handset Alliance and
confirm its intention to develop a handset based on the Android platform.
We believe Sony Ericsson can bring a wealth of experience in making consumer focused multimedia handsets with
new user experience to the Alliance drawing on the successes of the Walkman and Cyber-shot sub-brands.
Sony Ericsson is a strong supporter of open operating systems and we believe the
Open Handset Alliance offers an exciting opportunity for a new and unique user experience only Sony Ericsson can deliver.”

The official release also stats that the Open Handset Alliance membership will complement the Swedish-Japanese handset maker’s
existing Open OS strategy which is based on the Symbian and Windows Mobile platforms.
Meaning, they’ll keep pushing multiple platforms, at least for the time being.

Android OS ported to HTC Touch [Video]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iKje_0lUYg&eurl=http://www.intomobile.com/2008/12/10/android-os-ported-to-htc-touch-video.html

With Google’s Android OS being open-source and all, it’s only a matter of time before Android-enthusiasts port the Linux-based OS to their favorite smartphones.
The latest handset to get the Android-treatment is the Windows Mobile-powered HTC Touch, of all things.

The HTC Touch was manufactured as a Windows Mobile Professional smartphone,
but xda-developers user dzo, has discovered a way to bring the Android OS to the HTC Touch platform.
More specifically, the Android OS was ported to the CDMA variant of the HTC Touch, known as the HTC Vogue.

The video below shows Android running fairly well on the Touch.
The Android build used for this little demonstration even sports a custom on-screen keyboard that
the mainstream T-Mobile G1 lacks.



Putting Android on the HTC Touch is a fairly straight-forward process.
First, you’ll need to ensure that your Touch handset is running on a MSM7X00 CPU and
that your radio is updated to 3.42.50. Once you’ve verified the requirements, you’ll need to download the appropriate files and run a convenient executable file that will handle all the Android-porting for you.

And, when you’re done playing with Android on your HTC Touch/Vogue,
a simple reboot will take you back to Windows Mobile.

Find the instructions here.

Upcoming 2009 handsets from Motorola pose for BGR on their way to Verizon
http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2008/12/16/upcoming-2009-verizon-handsets-from-motorola-pose-for-bgr/



Well lookie here. Motorola apparently has a few tricks up its sleeve that might just surprise us in the coming year. Well they would have any way, if our trusty ninja didn’t come through with the goods! Moto fans, feast your eyes on four sexy handsets coming your way in what is shaping up to be Motorola’s final shot at survival. For the time being details are slim; in fact pretty much all we have are images, the knowledge that they’re all hitting Verizon Wireless, code names and a 2009 time frame (though we do know the RUSH 2 will be out during Q1, likely early in the quarter). We’re seeing some big changes here in terms of common styling cues from Moto - just look at the FLASH, pictured above. Sharp angles and raised, blended buttons - it actually looks pretty hot! There’s plenty more where that came from of course, so hit the jump for shots of the other three handsets.

Vuzix adds big-screen support to even more mobile handsets
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/12/10/vuzix-adds-big-screen-support-to-even-more-mobile-handsets.html

 
Vuzix AV230XL
Vuzix, the company behind personal video iWear, today confirmed its latest products were compatible with an increasing range of mobile handsets as well as with an expanding library of mobile video content.

(Sidenote: I’ve posted on Vuzix before - check out here, here, and here, for more info)

“Vuzix headsets change the small mobile screen experience into a big screen event,” said David Lock, head of European operations.  “Our iWear headsets create a virtual screen, up to 62” large, right in front of your eyes. It truly is the cinema in your pocket and now there is no shortage of material to watch.”

“Nokia’s N96 with the BBC iPlayer on board is just one high profile example of the sudden expansion in content and connectivity that is now available,” he added.

Lock confirmed that handsets such as HTC’s new Touch Pro, LG’s Viewty, the Nokia 6500, N95 and N96, and Samsung’s Innov8 & Omnia models - together of course with Apple’s iPhone, iPod Touch and the other iPod models - were all compatible with the full range of Vuzix personal video headsets, including the two latest models, the entry-level AV230XL and the widescreen AV310WS.


Vuzix AV310 Widescreen

“We are now seeing more and more handsets enter the market with video out capability,” said Lock.  “We fully expect more new models from LG, Nokia, Samsung, and Sony Ericsson to be hitting the market with TV out in the next few weeks that will also work with our iWear headsets.

“With the enormous growth and interest in mobile video content, whether it is downloadable or streamed, from anyone of the hundreds of web-based video sources such as YouTube, BBC iPlayer, and podcasts from sites such as iTunes; there is no doubt that more people are watching more content on more devices,” he said.

All of the iWear video headsets are supplied with a cable that connects to the iPhone as well as the full iPod range.  The Vuzix box also includes a lead that connects direct to the Nokia N95 and N96.

A further “video in” cable is included as standard by Vuzix, and this connects to the video out lead for HTC, LG, Samsung and Sony Ericsson handsets as well to popular games consoles such as the Nintendo Wii.  These video out leads are either supplied with the phone or are available as an accessory direct from the manufacturer.

Teddy Bear Phone – from Japan with Love
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Teddy-Bear-Phone-From-Japan-With-Love-92841.shtml



Teddy bears can hardly be associated with high-end technology, but Japan – the country where almost anything has to do with the T-word – thinks otherwise. The proof is a teddy bear phone concept that was presented during the 2008 Good Design Expo.


 

 
Dubbed Kuma Phone, the "teddy bear device" is made by Willcom, the fourth largest Japanese mobile operator and the country's sole provider of PHS (Personal Handy-phone System) services.


 

The Kuma Phone looks like any usual mid-size teddy bear. But inside it, Willcom has somehow packed a handset that can make and receive calls – provided that you insert a SIM card into it. According to CScout Japan, the unusual phone can save up to four numbers that can be speed-dialed via the bear's paws. Furthermore, the Kuma has custom ringtones and it even vibrates. Incoming calls can be answered by pressing the bear's tail, while doing the same during a call will end it.

 

 

Of course, the phone-related features of this Japanese teddy bear are far too limited when compared with the ones we can find in an ordinary mobile handset, but this will surely not stop the mobile operator from selling the weird device.

 

Willcom has also presented, at the 2008 Good Design Expo, a "candy phone" called Nico.Marble – which, together with the bearphone, would make any collector of weird handsets proud.

 

For the moment, there is no word on when the teddy bear phone will be commercially available, but Japan will obviously be the first country to get it, for a retail price of around 500 USD (about 342 Euros). While waiting to see users talking at their teddy bears on the street, we must say that, if this new concept turns out to be successful, Willcom can even extend the range of "stuffed handsets" and offer mobile phones packed into small sheep, hippos, giraffes or any other animal that might look cute.

Anyone have a Blackberry Pearl or Curve?





It charges your phone just by setting it down. I hope they are developing it for other devices.

Vertu Signature Dragon handset puts the 'ugh' in 'luxury'
http://www.engadget.com/2008/12/24/vertu-signature-dragon-handset-puts-the-ugh-in-luxury/


It looks like Vertu isn't resting on its laurels -- a mere two years after snatching the "world's ugliest phone title" with its Signature Cobra, the company's back with the Signature Dragon. What can we say about this one? Not much, seeing as how the thing isn't even listed on the company's website. Even so, since the Cobra retailed for over a quarter of a million bucks we're guessing this new handset ain't gonna be cheap. Feel free to sneak a peek at the thing in the Vertu store in Las Vegas's Wynn Hotel when you hit the town for CES. As an aside, when researching this post we came across an erotic French novel titled Dragon de Vertu which is on sale for about $30. Even if you don't read French, we still think it'd be a better use of your hard earned cash -- and if you do read French, please underline the good parts before you pass it on to us.



something for elano?

Fake iPhone nano makes its debut in Thailand
http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2008/12/27/fake-iphone-nano-makes-its-debut-in-thailand/


If you see a listing for an iPhone nano on eBay, don’t freak out and spend your life savings to be the first to own this hotly rumored device. Chances are quite good that the phone you receive will not be a genuine Apple product but a cheap knockoff from Thailand - and by “chances are quite good,” we mean it’s fake. iPhone knockoffs appear to be a dime a dozen in Thailand with some designed to fool the casual shopper by bearing an authentic-looking Apple logo and iPhone branding on the phone. Some feature the iconic iPhone interface while others come in a variety of colors. We especially enjoy the knockoff branded as the iPhone “Mini”. Before you jump all over the iPhone nano XSKN rumor and call shenanigans, note that the purported iPhone nano skin designed by XSKN will not fit these knockoffs. The XSKN sports a different design, including a home button that sits close to the edge of the touchscreen and not towards the bottom of the handset.  Hit the jump for a few more fake iPhone nano pictures for your amusement.
