The Kyocera NS01 is the first real “belt” phone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on January 29th, 2009

The Kyocera NS01 is the first real “belt” phoneThe Kyocera NS01 is not the best and most powerful phone available right now, but what it lacks in power, it makes up for in cutting edge geek fashion. The handset features an integrated belt, so it will hold up your pants while taking a call.

The NS01 features a 2.8 QVGA Screen, a 1.97MP camera, and e-wallet. Hey, at least you won’t lose your phone if it’s attached to your pants. There isn’t a ton of info, but I’m assuming it can detach easily while it is acting as a belt, because otherwise things could get comical real quick. Like if your friend needs to use your phone in an emergency, you would want to be able to quickly detach it. Because one guy on his knees, talking to someone in your crotch area in public doesn’t look good. It also doesn’t look good if you walk around hunched over talking to your own belt buckle as you try to pull it closer to no avail.

Windows Mobile 6.5 on the Compulab Exeda

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2009

Windows Mobile 6.5 on the Compulab ExedaRemember the Compulab Exeda? It sports a great design and can support multiple operating systems like Android and Windows Mobile, which is a rare treat. We like it more everytime we see it. It’s making news again because it has been seen running Windows Mobile 6.5. You can spot the upcoming OS because of the hexagonal buttons that are easier to use compared to Windows Mobile 6.1.

According to the company, this is an alpha build of the OS, and word is that it takes full advantage of 6.5′s inertial scrolling as well as other touch improvements. So, you get a phone that can run on either OS, that also has an Ethernet port, and both left/right click buttons. What’s not to like?

Barack Obama-branded cellphone hits KenyaA Kenyan cellphone company has released a Barack Obama-branded cellphone. The red and blue cellphone is covered with fun phrases like “Yes We Can” all over it. The company, Mi Phone, is calling it the Mi-Obama. It’ll cost around $30 there. You may or may not know, Obama’s father was born in Kenya.

Needless to say they are a hot seller. The product in it’s first week of availability has already sold over 1000 units in Nairobi alone. The Director of Mi-Fone says, “The coming of the new President of the USA is an auspicious moment for all Kenyans and the people of Africa. It is our pleasure to be able to launch the Mi-Obama phone as a memento that will always stay within the user’s hearts and minds”.

The phone comes with 2.2-inch AMOLED display screen, 3.2-megapixel camera, 120 MB internal memory, microSD card slot and supports HSDPA/GSM network. It’s by no means the top of the range in handsets, but it’s focus is on the beauty of simple design and ease of use.

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2008

Pantech IM-S400L Sky Oz phoneThe Pantech IM-S400L Sky Oz handset will only be available exclusively in Korea. What makes this CDMA phone interesting is that it relies on a mechanism called the Glide Sensor that turns the phone’s keypad into a notebook touchpad, making it easy to use when you’re browsing the Web. Other features include : 2.6” LCD display, a Digital DMB TV tuner, Subway map, Electronic dictionary.

We’re pretty sure there must be more features since most Korean handsets are pretty advanced. We may learn more. At any rate, this slider model looks pretty interesting and we don’t think it will disappoint.

The Vertu Signature Dragon

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 24th, 2008

The Vertu Signature DragonThe Wynn is one of those super luxurious hotels along the Strip at Las Vegas, so of course they host a whole bunch of high-end items such as exotic cars, designer clothes and expensive phones. The Vertu shop there is currently displaying it’s latest luxury cell phone, the Vertu Signature Dragon. Just like the Vertu Signature Cobra, the Dragon is not yet featured on the company’s website.

It’s a pretty cool looking phone. I think the only thing they could have done was to make the dragon’s eyes glow red when there’s an incoming call. Sadly, it doesn’t breath fire either, but it will burn a hole in your pocket with it’s enormous cost.

Neoi 906E thinks it’s the worlds thinnest QWERTY phone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 17th, 2008

Neoi 906E thinks it’s the worlds thinnest QWERTY phoneDo I laugh or not? German company Neoi introduced the 906E. It claims to be the thinnest QWERTY phone in the world. Who are we to argue? It’s almost as thin as the credit card. The Neoi 906E is packed with a lot of features including, a camera, Bluetooth, MP3 player, microSD card slot expandable up to 8GB.

The handset also supports Tri-Band GSMGPRS 900/1800/1900 MHz and comes with an integrated hands-free speakerphone. Problem is, they want you to purchase a minimum quantity of 500 units to get this handset. Hmmm. On one hand, it’s the world’s thinnest, on the other I don’t really need 500 since I’m not Santa.

Mystery swivel handset identified as Compal Tabasco

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 16th, 2008

Mystery swivel handset identified as Compal TabascoIt looks like that mystery Korean handset we spotted awhile back has been identified as a MID from Compal with the strange name of Tabasco. The shot that we saw was taken at Computex 2008 in June.

The non functioning prototype features a rear facing 3.2 megapixel camera with 2x optical zoom and a flash, a front-facing webcam, and it measures about 6.3 x 3.3 x 1.3-inches with a 4.5 or 5-inch screen. The processor, as well as OS and storage capacity are unknown. So there’s still some mystery here. We have no idea if it’s on track for release or just a prototype. We may learn more at CES.

Car key stops teenagers from using mobile phones while driving

Car key stops teenagers from using mobile phones while drivingThere’s nothing worse then a driver who is too busy running their mouth on a cellphone and not paying attention to the road. Or the other cars. Teenage drivers in particular love to get distracted by their mobile phones. Well, University of Utah engineers have designed a wireless car key device that stops users from talking on their cell phone or sending text messages while behind the wheel.

Each driver of a car will have a separate key device. When the key is extended from the device, it emits a signal that puts the teenagers phone in “Driving Mode,” so that they can’t use it and kill you. In driving mode the phone will display a stop sign and hopefully the death loving teen will get in the habit of leaving the phone alone while driving.

Mobiado Professional 105GMT Gold, mechanical watch phone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2008

Mobiado Professional 105GMT Gold, mechanical watch phoneMobiado is famous for its range of high-end cell phones, and the Professional 105GMT Gold handset is their latest. They call it “the expression of mechanical perfection, mastering of aesthetic details, and the integrity of consistent craftsmanship.”

The 105GMT Gold is made from single piece of sapphire crystal, ebony wood and a CNC-machined frame with a 24-carat gold coating on top. The keypad is made from sapphire crystal too, and hand painted with gold. What makes the Professional 105GMT Gold phone stand out from the rest of these gilded luxury phones is that it features a watch mechanism at the base of the case. No idea on price, but since it will be limited to just 50 units worldwide, expect to pay a small fortune.

Mystery swivel prototype device shows up

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 7th, 2008

Mystery swivel prototype device shows upWhat do we have here? A new mystery swivel device that seems to feature a very tiny touchpad between the “mouse” buttons, but why not just make the entire display touch sensitive? Looks like a cross between an UMPC and a MID. This was snapped at Computex 2008 in Taipei in June.

Aside from the exterior, we don’t have any details. Your guess is as good as mine. The “P” symbol is probably where the Windows key is supposed to be. Who will carry the device if and when it ever comes out? What would be the operating system be? Tune in next time on “Mysteries of the swiveling kind”.
