If you’re looking for a projector phone and don’t care how cheap it is, the Titanium projector phone comes with a LED projector that has manual focus. It’s easy to use and navigation is a breeze. Some other features include a 2.2 inch touchscreen display, FM, stereo Bluetooth, camera and reception for analog TV.
This phone will let you enjoy MP4 movies at 80 cm size across a distance of about 2 meters. Only $217. Not bad. Even if it isn’t much of a looker.
Well, if you’ve been waiting for your kin and are willing to part with $30 a month in data charges, Verizon will be selling the Kin One and Kin Two online as soon as tomorrow, May 6, for $49.99 and $99.99 respectively. That’s with a two-year contract.
Keep in mind that you’ll be paying $100 more upfront while you wait for your rebate to be mailed to you. But if you want to wait and get to know the devices first, you’ll be able to get both in Verizon retail locations starting on the 13th.
A cell phone for seniors is almost a contradiction. Sure, we can make the buttons bigger and do all kinds of other things, but that ain’t gonna stop grandpa from flushing it down the crapper when he gets Alzheimers. Nevertheless, I guess we still have to try.
And so here’s another cellphone meant for Senior Citizens, complete with big numbered buttons, a torch light for when they get lost at night, FM radio, and a SOS button which can be programmed to dial four emergency numbers and send text messages to those numbers programmed into the cellphone. When you press the SOS button in an Emergency situation, the phone will issue a loud warning sound and automatically send broadcast messages to the default phone numbers programmed in.
If you are waiting for the new Kin phones, this latest leak will be welcome news. According to an internal Verizon email, both devices will be available for pre-order on May 6th, and will be launched on all channels on May 13th.
Obviously there’s no official confirmation, but with May 6th almost upon us already, we’ll know if it’s true soon enough.
If you have an iPhone or an Android phone, you have an app store. But if you have a mobile phone without an app store, Snaptu might be able to help. It’s basically an app store for mobile phones that don’t have one built-in, like phones that run Java ME.
Platforms like Windows Mobile and Symbian can also benefit from Snaptu. It’s available on AT&T’s Apps Beta site and has about 20 apps so far, but hopefully that number will grow.
This Oval iPhone from China is clearly designed for the ladies. It looks like it could be any number of womanly things. Maybe a makeup mirror or compact. It’s called the ‘Lady Apple’. I can almost hear you ladies swooning. The phone bears the Apple logo and the word ‘iPhone’, so you know you can trust it right?
Looks like it has pretty average specs, including built-in games, media playback, a digital camera and an FM radio. The round design actually looks kind of slick.
If you’re looking for a feature phone with a full QWERTY keyboard, you’ll be glad to know that Verizon Wireless has officially announced the Samsung Reality (SCH-U820). The device will be available starting April 22nd from Verizon Wireless for $79.99. That’s after a $50 mail-in rebate, bundled with the customary 2-year contract.

Attention all pig loving, mutant Winnie the Pooh loving types out there. We have a phone for you.The black dot on the nose of the pig face is a 0.3 mega-pixel camera. The eyes and mouth light up. Lights flash when you listen to music on the phone and it will blink in different colors all the time.
This pig phone is actually supposed to be Winnie the Pooh. But because they really have no legal right to make this Pooh phone, it looks like a pig-Pooh instead. Though for some reason they did put a Walt Disney logo on the back.
Remember Microsoft Pink? It’s just been unveiled as a pair of handsets from Sharp called the Kin One and Kin Two. The devices are mostly based on Windows Phone 7, but they offer a totally different experience.
The entire user interface is custom to Kin and has a heavier social media slant, a custom browser and what’s this?, no support for third-party apps. The displays support multitouch with no support for in-browser Flash or Silverlight.
Most of us just want the latest and most sophisticated phone available, but maybe some people are looking for an extremely tiny phone for extremely small talk. This SWAP Nova Keychain Phone is a 2G (GSM/GPRS) handset smaller than a box of matches. It’s made by the same people who do the watch phones.
It comes with a stylus, microSD slot and a recessed direct connect USB plug. You can hang it around your neck or on the key fob, and hold it to your ear to talk. It should arrive later this year for about £199.00.
Well, now this is an impressive claim. The Philips Xenium X312 will have a month of battery life, according to this render’s front screen. Some other specs to leak out include a QVGA display, Bluetooth, FM radio, 2 megapixel camera, and a microSD memory card slot. It’s probably only 2G, which helps get that amazing battery life.
With that kind of battery life you would never miss a call, ever. Sadly, chances are we won’t be seeing this one in North America, and it will stay around Asia and Russia.
We now have more information on the LG LU2300 smartphone which comes with a slideout QWERTY keyboard and a circular D-Pad. There’s also a hardware button setup on the front.
It differs from other Android phones from LG because it has the fast 1GHz Snapdragon processor with a 3.5″ AMOLED display, 5-megapixel camera and Android 2.1. Right now it looks like it’s only a South Korea special. No idea if or when it will hit North America.
Lady Gaga. You can’t escape her, no matter what radio station you play or where you are. And people are in love with her out there music videos. Now that she’s hit the bigtime, Lady Gaga now has her own mobile phone devoted to her.

Merge an iPhone with your standard flip-phone and you get this thing, which looks like a cross between an iPhone and the Star Trek communicator. It’s the N933 smartphone. There’s no branding As far as we can tell, but it also has Apple’s iPhone interface.
When the flip is down, it looks just like any budget phone. Nothing great here when it comes to features. If you want one, it will cost you $129.99.
