Nexus One Google Phone might arrive on T-Mobile January 5thAccording to Reuters, Google will have not one, but two versions of the Nexus One phone. One unlocked and one on a service contract with T-Mobile. The phone may be available directly from Google as soon as January 5th in fact.

This is the second confirmation of that date, so it is looking very likely. So if you want this bad boy you won’t have long to wait. Obviously we are hoping that the unlocked version is pretty cheap.

Unofficial Adidas phone

Unofficial Adidas phoneLooking for a phone that matches your fancy Adidas shoes? Well, you can get this one, but despite it’s looks, it isn’t an official handset from the sportswear giant. Sure it has the Adidas logo on the front of this clamshell, but that’s really all we know about it.

You can probably expect the usual specifications of such clones, like dual SIM and a digital camera as well as a complete lack of quality at a high price. We will probably see a Nike version very soon.

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2009

MyTouch 3G clone runs Windows Mobile 6.5We’ve seen plenty of knock-off cell phones, whether they be iPhone ripoffs to Nokia clones Blackberry doppelgangers. Let’s face it, they are fun to spot and in many cases easy to laugh at. Take this T-mobile MyTough 3G (HTC Magic) “inspired” phone, for instance.

The design looks like the MyTouch 3G, but this thing is running Windows Mobile 6.5. Some other features include Wifi, GPS, and bluetooth. And as an added insult, it even comes with a pair of headphones that are clearly Apple earbud rip-offs. If for some reason you are interested in rocking this, it’s a steep $288.

Melty Chocolate Phone not from LGIf you like your phones looking all chocolaty and sweet, you might want to check out these melty chocolate phones from Japanese designer Q-Pot.

The First ELSE Phone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on November 24th, 2009

The First ELSE PhoneThe First ELSE is an interesting mobile phone. The idea is that it’s centered around the user experience, rather than the phone itself. The First ELSE has the phone as an application on the device, rather than being the main function of the device. The camera is the same way.

We don’t yet know which operator will be getting this, but Pocket-lint did spot some representatives from Orange at the event. Target markets for the phone are the US, Western Europe and Russia. They just might be onto something here.

Saygus VPhone is first with 2-way video calling

Posted in Mobile Phones by Shane McGlaun on November 17th, 2009

saygus_vphone_v1_live_4-540x472I’ll be honest; I don’t get the desire for video calling. I can see if you have family or friends that you don’t get to see otherwise it might be appealing. For me, I don’t want to talk to most of the people who call me, much less see them. Still if video calling is one of the things you want, Saygus has announced that its VPhone will support 2-way video calls and is the first to do so.

The VPhone will operate on the Verizon network and has a VGA quality forward facing camera for video calls and a 5MP camera on the rear with flash and autofocus for pictures. The handset has a large 3.5-inch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 that supports multi-touch.

Best Buy Mobile offers Sprint Android phones on the cheap

Posted in Mobile Phones by Shane McGlaun on November 17th, 2009

htchero-dtOne of the things that I really hate about the mobile phone industry today is that they won’t just give you a good price. All of the carriers want to offer you a price that looks good, but what you really pay is often much more than that until a mail-in rebate comes in. Thankfully, Best Buy Mobile is cutting through the crap and offers all of the good prices with instant rebates in its stores.

The latest deals include the Sprint HTC Hero and Samsung Moment each for $99 with instant rebates applied. That means no paying more and waiting to get your money back. Both phones are originally priced at $179.

Bellperre’s Finest Woods luxury phone

Bellperre’s Finest Woods luxury phoneBellperre is one of those companies that only offers handsets made from the finest luxury materials. With this phone they are keeping it as natural as possible, by including wood on the external chassis. Don’t worry, you still have the option to deck it out in tacky looking jewels.

Some of the woods available include hand-polished Steel, Rosé Gold, Yellow Gold, Platinum and Brushed Black. It’s a nice loking phone, but let’s just hope that someone makes one that you and I can afford soon.

Michael Jackson phone

Michael Jackson phoneEverybody wants to cash in on the King of Pop’s death, so we aren’t surprised to see this Michael Jackson phone appear in China. In a Gold color of course. We are talking the king of pop here.

Sure it looks kinda fugly, but if you’re a big MJ fan, you might want to buy this to go with your other memorabilia. The outside appears to be actually dressed like MJ. The phone comes with a Michael Jackson live-performance DVD which is probably a bootleg, and is decked out in plastic diamonds.
