This reminds us of one of those complicated wallets that folds five ways, with all kinds of pockets that never get used. But the Sony Ericsson W44S does have a legitimate reason for its odd Siamese-twin design because it's trying to be multiple devices at one time: a multimedia phone with a TV tuner, 3.2-megapixel camera and 115MB of internal memory that can record and play video. The "dual-hinge" clamshell can be twisted in different directions, according to Mobile Magazine, for use like a traditional flip phone or a PDA. (You have to see the photos … Read more
Mobiledia says Verizon Wireless will introduce a new slider EV-DO phone by the end of the year. According to the Web site, the Samsung SCH-U620 will offer access to Verizon's V Cast streaming video service and V Cast Music for downloads. Other expected features include support for VZ Navigator, a MicroSD card slot, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and Bluetooth with a stereo profile. From our perspective the phone looks very sexy; we hope to get our hands on it soon.
I was in London this summer and was introduced to something so incredibly delectable: Green & Black's organic dark chocolate. The flavor and richness is ever so wonderful. Yes, I am a chocolate addict!
It was also in London that I caught the first glimpse of another line of chocolate: The LG Chocolate! The phone is for sale in the U.S. with three color choices. Which one should I choose? The sexy black, the elegant white or the glam pink. What a dilemma! I'm going to munch on some Green & Black's chocolate while I think … Read more
We never quite understood the need for roll-up keyboards, especially those constructed to withstand post-apocalyptic conditions. For the most part, they just seemed more trouble than they were worth.
But there's something about this fabric keyboard from Just Mobile RoKy that struck us as different. It was this photo on Mobility Site that sold us: The keyboard's Bluetooth connection and accompanying universal stand for a smart phone or PDA make a lot of sense. Plus, the simple carrying case affixed to the end presumably would help keep the thing from unfurling in your pocket and onto the floor. … Read more
Beginning Dec. 1, our friends across the Atlantic will be able to snag a cell phone pre-loaded with Sling Player Mobile.
The 3G mobile broadband company known as the 3 Group will be offering its new X-series of handsets with the software preinstalled needed to play content from a home television via a Slingbox, the two companies are expected to announce Thursday.
It's Sling Media's first partnership with a major mobile operator.
Samsung quietly introduced the Samsung SGH-X507, a mostly basic model we thought had become lost in the cell phone wilderness. Though the SGH-X507 first appeared on Cingular's radar screen last spring, the carrier took its time in formally introducing the phone. In fact, by late summer when we still hadn't seen SGH-X507, we began to dig a plot for it in our mobile graveyard. But just as we were about to hold services, Cingular brought it back to life.
Behind a basic black and gray flip phone design is a simple feature set meant for making calls. Highlights … Read more
Verizon Wireless launched a variant of its Motorola V235 that will please Bluetooth geeks. The Motorola V325i is nearly identical to its namesake in both features and design but it adds Bluetooth for connecting to a headset. But keep in mind that since this is a Verizon phone other Bluetooth profiles will be limited. Also, we're puzzled that the V325i has far less shared memory than the V325. Yes, 30MB is decent but 64MB is better. The V325i is a reasonable $30 with service.
After telling you about Cingular Music two weeks ago, I was very excited to try it out. So when the new Samsung Sync (a.k.a. the SGH-A707) showed up in my mailbox, I jumped at the chance to give the service a thorough shakedown. But after pulling the phone from its wrapping, I noticed there wasn't a USB cable in the box. Considering the cable is necessary to use Cingular Music (wireless downloads aren't a possibility yet), and that the Sync is the launch handset for the service, I thought it might be a mistake. Yet a … Read more
Along with the LG VX8600 Chocolate flip phone, today Verizon Wireless also released the PN-300, the rebranding of the Pantech PN-300. There's nothing too special about the PN-300, but that is precisely the purpose of this basic, entry-level phone.
It's a pared-down, no-frills phone that delivers simple features such as text messaging, a speakerphone, voice dialing, and not much else. Sure, it's not as fancy as the LG VX8600, but at the low price of $29.99, it could be a good phone for those that just want a phone to make calls.
Verizon Wireless just launched the LG VX8600 Chocolate flip phone this morning, and all the features and specs are just as we blogged about last week. As a recap, the features of the phone include a music player, a 1.3-megapixel camera and camcorder, a microSD card slot, A2DP Bluetooth support, built-in GPS, a speakerphone, and support for V Cast Music and V Cast Video. And of course, you get the sexy and sleek design of the LG Chocolate but in the clamshell form factor. The retail value of the phone is $179.99 but you can get it for $… Read more
