White Nexus S coming soon to Vodafone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on February 8th, 2011

That White Nexus S that we told you about last month, which showed up in European retailer’s listings, just got confirmed for Vodafone.

It’s a white Nexus S and it is headed for Vodafone. That’s all we’ve got since details are scarce aside from that. Vodafone simply says that the phone is “coming soon,” and that it will be the only carrier to offer the phone in white, at least in the UK. So which of you Brits are getting one?

Nexus S shows up in white

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2011

The Nexus S has shown up with a new white coat, but it’s only on the back, leaving the front end the same old black. Hey, it may not be completely white, but at least it stands out from the norm. Aside from this variation, a “Silver Black” Nexus S was seen recently in European retailers’ listings.

That may be this one. We aren’t sure. It depends on how loose they interpret “silver.” No word yet on when or where this Nexus S will be on sale, but hopefully we will know soon.

This is one of many devices expected at the upcoming MWC. It’s called the Galaxy Mini (S5570) and though we already knew of the existence of the device, this is the first time that the phone has been pictured.

So what do we know about it? The phone has been certified by China’s FCC-like agency and will feature a 262K 240×320 resolution screen, TouchWiz UI, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, microSD card slot and it runs Android 2.2.1. The measurements are 110.42×60.76×12.68mm.

If you have more money than common sense, here is your new phone. Vertu and Ferrari have teamed up to produce this latest luxury phone. It features a 2-inch QVGA sapphire crystal display and quadband 3G.

The case is made from forged titanium with a matte black PVD finish and the same hand stitched leather as the interior of the car itself. You better hurry if you want one though. Only 2,011 will be made. Very clever.

PlayStation Phone torn apart

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2011

We’ve seen the outside of the Playstation phone, but not the inside. Until now. TGBus has had it’s nurses carefully lay out the tools, they scrubbed up, put on some rockin’ tunes and proceeded to operate.

You can check out all of the details of this phone which doesn’t officially exist yet at the link. While you’re at it, someone may want to tell Sony that the secret is out on this one.

PlayStation Phone shows up on video

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on January 10th, 2011

The PlayStation Phone has found its way into the hands of some folks and now a video has popped up showing one of these lucky guys playing Resident Evil 2 and Rage Racer on it. The hardware seems legit, but the titles had to be loaded through ROM Buddy (a third-party Android app for running ROMs), so we are guessing that the software is still being worked on.

At least that’s what it looks like, but this could be a hoax. You can check out the video for yourself below and let us know what you think.

It looks like the phone will feature a 4-inch 854 x 480 pixel resolution display, a 1500mAh battery, 5-megapixel autofocus camera, LED flash, microSD card slot, microUSB port and a secondary mic for noise cancellation. We can’t wait for this one to become available.

Presenting The Poop Phone

Posted in Mobile Phones,Uncategorized by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2010

You may or may not be aware of it, but there is a range of phones in China by a manufacturer called OPPO and they sell pretty well. That’s apparently why members of the Shanzai have created a knock-off model. They didn’t just copy, they changed things a round a bit as usual and the result is this new POOP line of cellphones.

We don’t have any info on features or a price, but I can just imagine their advertising. Stay in touch with the power of Poop. Or Put a Poop in your hands today.

PlayStation Phone to be called Xperia Play?

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2010

So what will the new Playstation Phone be called? Well, a trademark filling was spotted and it looks like Sony will call it the Xperia Play. Adding some credence to this, the company’s PR firm has registered various Xperia Play domain names, such as XperiaPlay.com, .net, and .org.

Sounds like a good name to us. Hopefully we will learn more very soon since CES is just around the corner. Until then just continue drooling. It won’t be long.

Google Nexus S UK delayed until December 22nd

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 20th, 2010

The Google Nexus S was scheduled to go on sale in the UK today, but now Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy have just announced that the Nexus S wont go on sale until the 22nd of December. We don’t have any details on why the Nexus S has been delayed, but it could be due to the bad weather in the UK right now.

It could be that the units just can’t get where they need to get to. Earlier today there was news that the price of the Nexus S had dropped to £429, and it is now also cheaper on contract than what was previously announced.

Survey says Android is for Men, iPhone for Women

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 1st, 2010

A recent survey published by Nielsen shows that Android, BlackBerry, and iPhone are among the most popular phones in the U.S., with iPhone and BlackBerry leading with a 27 percent market share each and Android not too far behind with 23 percent and Windows Mobile capturing 14 percent.

The interesting aspect about the survey is that males prefer Android over the iPhone and its iOS operating system (33 percent for Android versus 29 percent for iOS) and that women were more interested in iOS (31 percent to 23 percent). Overall, the iPhone appears to be leading with 35% of those who are looking into purchasing a new phone, while 28% are choosing Android.

PlayStation Phone surfaces from Greece

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 1st, 2010

The PlayStation Phone has been sighted. A video of the phone in action has surfaced from Greece. Sadly, we don’t get to see the phone showing off its slider game pad, but judging by previous pictures this seems like the real thing. It’s one half portable gaming console, one half Android smartphone.

It’s called the Sony Ericsson Z1 and is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The 4-inch touchscreen has been said to offer great responsiveness. Check out the video below.

Testers post photos from mystery Samsung GT-I9200 handset

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2010

Some mysterious hints of an upcoming Samsung handset, known only as GT-i9200, have appeared on the web recently. No pictures of the device itself, just pictures that the device has taken. That’s because the device is being used by testers to take sample photos. The handset may be the Stealth V and not a new Nexus S, which goes by the i9020 codename.

That’s about all the info we have at the moment. Technical information on the handset is unknown and even the photos have been down scaled for the web so we can’t even guess at the camera’s resolution. We do love a good mystery though.

Nexus S spotted running Android 2.3 Gingerbread

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on November 25th, 2010

More pictures of the Nexus S have surfaced, coming from the guys over at XDA-developers. Judging by these pics, it looks like the device is running an operating system very much like Android Gingerbread.

It’s labeled as Android 2.3 in the pics, and this one features a back cover that’s similar to the original Galaxy S, just a bit more curved. Looks like the phone will have 720p video recording too.
