Energy 888D cellphone is curvy

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on March 4th, 2010

Here’s an unusual phone design. It has curves in all the wrong places. It has a fully curved display, which is kind of cool, but not very practical. The Energy 888D is unusual for sure.

We don’t know very much about it, but whats to know? It has curves and a pink finish. That should be enough incentive to stay away. The clip on the back will make sure that it is always with you, since it’s not pocket-friendly.

Sonim XP2 Spirit 3G phone abused at MWC

Posted in Mobile Phones by Shane McGlaun on February 17th, 2010

One of the most embarrassing things I have seen happen to a manufacturer at CES happened this year when Sonim challenged people to break its indestructible X3 handset. One guy from BBC succeeded, thwarting all claims of being indestructible. Sonim is showing off its new XP2 Spirit at MWC and letting people beat the thing up.

This time around, the handset is called “nearly unbreakable” and people are beating the device up pretty good with a tool belt featuring nails, wood, sand paper, and other torturous devices for which to work on the smartphone with. The handset is the firms first 3G offering.
