LG Slide Concept Phone

Saturday, May 14, 2011

There's no shortage of cool new phone designs, but the more of these concepts that are showcased, the more likely we'll see some further innovation in future phones. This concept art for the LG Slide Phone is more like a way to blend your small cell phone with a netbook computer. It might seem counter-intuitive to mix a small design with a netbook computer. While netbooks are small, they're not quite pocket sized. But the solution to this issue is to create a screen which slides out from the phone, giving you the screen area of a small computer and the portability of a tiny phone.

Presumably, the screen would be made out of a flexible material, allowing it to roll up inside the phone without damaging it, but also sturdy enough to have some rigidity when extended. In my mind, I think of something like those snap bracelets which were a fad about 15-20 years ago. A feature like this will not only allow you to have a larger web browsing area, but also be able to play games that require more viewing area and perhaps even run applications like Photoshop as the specs of phones continue to increase.

Phones, after all, are moving down the track into becoming viable personal computers in themselves, and a concept like this would perfectly blend the portability of a typical phone, the innards of a powerful computer, and the visual area of something like an iPad. You can see that the concept pictures make this out to be truly tiny, able to fit into one's wallet much like a credit card. Impractical at the moment, sure, as I can't see how one would fit the processing power into such a tiny phone along with the screen and a battery capable of powering the phone and the larger screen.

Regardless of practicality, ideas like this will mark the way for future phones and it will be interesting to see how things change in the near future. After all, just picture the phone you had 10 or 15 years ago and compare it to something like an iPhone or Droid.

Nokia E6-00 leaked

There is a new Nokia E6-00 smartphone that is just waiting to be unleashed upon the masses, but so far it has been held back – fret not, we have managed to catch it in a leak, so that you will also be able to lay your eyes on this new, candybar-style smartphone. Of course, taking on the candybar form factor would mean a full QWERTY keyboard, not to mention a VGA resolution touchscreen display that is accompanied by an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, a front-facing camera for video call purposes as well as a special version of the Symbian operating system which will play nice with the device's 4:3 display aspect ratio. VGA resolution in this day and age isn't too phat at all, so hopefully that will be different upon its launch.


Nokia C6 will be sold in Canada by Fido for $275 sans contract

Fido is soon going to launch the Nokia C6. No, not that one, but its slightly older brother. To be absolutely accurate, we must say that we're talking about the Nokia C6-00 here, and not the C6-01. Thank Nokia for its sometimes baffling naming scheme.

Anyway, the Nokia C6 runs Symbian^1, a.k.a. S60 5th Edition, a.k.a. the version of Symbian that won't get the fabled new UI that's coming sometime this summer. So this phone isn't quite future proof, from a software standpoint at least.

It is, however, a perfectly decent device for someone who hasn't used a smartphone before, or has, for some reason, been a Nokia user in the past (no matter how rare that occurrence might be anywhere in North America). The Nokia C6 has a 3.2-inch 360×640 resistive touchscreen, a side-sliding full physical QWERTY keyboard, a 434 MHz ARM11 processor, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and VGA (640×480) video recording, GPS, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 240 MB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot.


Nokia C5-04 now available from Wind Mobile in Canada for $150 sans contract

The oddly named (but not for Nokia, clearly) Nokia C5-04 was supposed to be released by Wind Mobile in Canada five days ago, on April 7. But something has apparently delayed it a bit, and it's only now become officially available from Wind Mobile in Canada.

Wind will sell you a Nokia C5-04 for $150 – and that's with no contract required. If you don't mind Symbian^1 (also known as S60 5th Edition), this is quite a bargain. The Nokia C5-04 has a 3.2-inch 640×360 touchscreen, a 5-megapixel camera with video recording, a 600 MHz processor, 128 MB of RAM, 40 MB of internal storage expandable via a microSD card slot, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1000 mAh battery. You also get HD voice support, and Nokia's Ovi Store as well as Ovi Maps with free worldwide navigation and offline map access.

The Nokia C5-04 is an AWS version of the Nokia C5-03, an affordable smartphone that has already been launched elsewhere. If you don't necessarily lust after the latest iPhone or Android handset, but would like an affordable, yet quite capable smartphone, the C5-04 may be for you. Head on over here at Wind Mobile to order one.


Verizon Samsung Fascinate Android 2.2 Froyo update begins tomorrow, April 21

Monday, May 9, 2011

The Android 2.2 Froyo update is finally about to hit the Samsung Fascinate, Verizon’s Galaxy S mobile phone gadget. Rejoice! Sure, almost five entire months have passed since Google has released Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but Verizon customers who own Fascinate smartphones should be happy either way – at least they’re getting a new OS version.

The update will start rolling out tomorrow, on April 21. Rather surprisingly, it will arrive over-the-air. That means that if you have a Fascinate, your device will at some point inform you that there’s an update. From there on, you just download it and let it install. If you want to force your device to check for the update, go to Settings > About phone > System updates and select Check New. Just remember that doing that today is pointless.

Also keep in mind that the update may see a staggered rollout, meaning that it may take a few days (or more) for it to reach your particular handset.

Alongside the usual Froyo goodies, such as support for Adobe Flash, the update also contains newer versions of Verizon apps, as well as improved GPS performance and many other bug fixes and performance enhancements.


Samsung Galaxy Pro B7510 officially launched in India

Samsung has officially released its Galaxy Pro B7510 Android smartphone in India.

Announced back in March, the Galaxy Pro mobile phone gadget is a candybar with a full QWERTY keyboard, and a 2.8 inch QVGA touchscreen display.

The smartphone runs Android 2.2 and also features 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, access to social networking services, document editor, 3.5mm headset jack, 3.2MP camera, 800MHz processor, and a 2GB memory card pre-installed.

Indian customers should be able to find the Samsung Galaxy Pro in retail and online stores for about 12,500 INR ($280).


Samsung Galaxy S II, Motorola Xoom headed to Telstra Australia

Earlier in January, we’ve reported that Telstra would launch Honeycomb tablets in Australia. Now the time has come to find out exactly what tablet the carrier plans to release: it’s the Motorola Xoom gadget, the world’s first Honeycomb device.

According to Ausdroid, Telstra confirmed the Xoom earlier today, and it looks like it will be ready to introduce it in May. Pricing details have not been disclosed.

Another new Android device that’s headed to Telstra is the Samsung Galaxy S II i9100.

As you can see in the image above, the i9100T version of the new Galaxy has been approved by the Bluetooth SIG. Usually, when a Samsung handset receives a T next to its model name, it means Telstra will carry it sooner or later (this is what happened to the Galaxy 551 – check it out here at Telstra – and quite a few other Samsungs).

We’ve previously heard that MobiCity would sell the S II unlocked in Australia starting this month. However, now the retailer says the handset will ship in early May. It’s quite possible that Telstra will have it starting the same period. We’ll see.


Press Photos of HTC Incredible 2 for Verizon Leaked

It is very likely that the unveiling of HTC's Incredible 2 on Verizon will be sooner than we think. Press photos of the smartphone have appeared on PocketNow, saying that it will be shipped on April 28.

The HTC Incredible 2 is seen with the Droid “red eye” commonly featured in Motorola's Android handsets, fueling speculations that it could be named “Verizon Droid Incredible 2mobile phone gadget.


Verizon's HTC Incredible 2 Gets Its Release RUU Leaked

The folks at 911 Sniper have just leaked the RUU and PG32IMG for the HTC Vivo for Verizon – otherwise known as the HTC Droid Incredible 2 mobile phone gadget. (Name not confirmed.) They mention that it’s the version of the ROM that’s supposed to ship on the phone so it means this thing is just about ready for retail. We’ll have our fingers crossed for an April release, but we won’t be holding a second’s worth of breath. We’ll be downloading it to see what we can dig up.


HTC Incredible S, Desire S Head to Australia

Mobilicity is now offering two of HTC’s newest smartphones in Australia.The HTC Desire S mobile phone gadget can be had unlocked for AUD$700. It’ll run Android 2.3 Gingerbread once you pick it up, too, so you’ll be on the latest and greatest for a while to come. The Incredible S will also make an appearance at Mobilicity, but as with versions of the phone for other regions, it won’t be getting Gingerbread at launch, but expect an upgrade sometime down the line. For those of you who’d rather get it on contract, Telstra should be offering both of these devices sometime soon.


HTC Droid Incredible 2 struts its stuff in leaked press shots? (Updated)

If you had any doubts about HTC's Incredible S phone gadget making it to our shores, they're probably dissipating as we speak - not only has the phone obtained Verizon's shiny red checkmark, it's now got the robotic eye of Sauron staring at us with ferocious intensity. PocketNow obtained these pictures of the likely Droid Incredible 2 without naming so much as an anonymous source, and we wouldn't be surprised if it's Verizon's way of reminding us that the handset is rapidly on its way to market. You'll find two more pictures at our source link.

Update: Android Central got hold of some new shots of the actual phone itself, which shows off its model number ADR6350 and firmware 2.2.1. Thanks, Bla1ze.
