Nokia N95 Released in US

Posted in N95,News,Nokia,Smart Devices by Darrin Olson on April 9th, 2007

Nokia N95 released in the USWe new it was coming soon, and now the Nokia N95 that was released in Europe a couple weeks ago is available in the US. An unlocked version can be purchased through Nokia’s site for the N Series mobile phones or through select wireless retailers, but it will cost you.

As with many situations “cool” comes at a price, and in the case of the N95 it comes at a price of $750. In order to try and justify the price for this gadget, keep in mind that this is the smartphone that slides both directions; one way to expose a keypad and the other to expose some multimedia buttons. It has GPS built-in with associated navigation software, a 5 megapixel camera, supports WiFi and Bluetooth but no 3G.

The Nokia N95 seems to have the right stuff, but its hard to …

Deepfish mobile web browser from Microsoft

Posted in Browsers,Deepfish,Microsoft,Mobile Phones,Smart Devices by Darrin Olson on March 31st, 2007

Microsoft Deepfish mobile web browserMicrosoft has recently announced the release of Deepfish, a web browser for mobile devices that’s still in its early stages. The new browser for smart devices promises to make the experience of browsing web pages closer to that of viewing the pages on a standard desktop browser.

For the most part, browsing the internet on a “smartphone” is cumbersome at best. There are a number of sites that have been developed with scaled down pages targeting mobile devices, but for the vast majority of web sites (including SlipperyBrick) you will need to view it in the full-size which can make it hard to view and navigate.

Toward the end of last year we had news of an Opera web browser that has “Small Screen Rendering” that would “shrink” standard size pages down to be viewed in full on Samsung mobile phones. The …

Helio Dual-Sliding Action Smartphone

Posted in Helio,Mobile Phones,Smart Devices by Darrin Olson on February 21st, 2007

Helio Dual sliding phone Pantech pn-810A Helio branded phone has recently been discovered seeking approval on the FCC website, featuring a new multi-layer design.

The Pantech PN-810 made for Helio appears to be a new smartphone design solution with a unique triad of interfaces. On the face of the phone there is a relatively large 260k TFT LCD display with a handful of navigation buttons, but no keypad. Slide the phone length-wise and it exposes a number pad for dialing, and slide it sideways to expose a full qwerty keyboard. I’d be willing to bet that the view switches to landscape when the qwerty keyboard comes out (no numbers).

The double sliding Helio also contains EV-DO radio, Bluetooth and a 2.1 megapixel camera. Since this mobile phone is still kind of under wraps, there is no word on availability or price, but we will definitely be watching for …

Palm Treo 700wx from Verizon, finally

Posted in Palm,Smart Devices,Verizon by Darrin Olson on February 20th, 2007

Palm Treo 700wx now available from Verizon WirelessVerizon and Palm have today announced the availability of the Palm Treo 700wx from Verizon Wireless, which looks to completely brick the Treo 700w.

Sprint has had the Treo 700wx available for some time now and Verizon is finally getting there chance at it. Verizon currently has the older brother 700w, which is basically the same phone minus just the ‘x’ and 32MB of internal RAM. Both its predecessor and the Palm Treo 700wx are available from the Verizon Wireless online store for $399.99 with a two year contract, and with a $100 mail-in rebate the price almost comes close to the $249 that Sprint is offering.

You might begin to think, as did we, that at this rate the new offering from Verizon would have Windows Mobile 6 added into it, but no dice. It does however …

MOTORIZR Z8 from MotorolaMotorola has announced the new MOTORIZR Z8 from Motorola featuring a sleek design that’s becoming commonplace with Motorola phones, but this one has a slight twist, or more of an angle really.

The Z8 has a “kick slider” design, which slides out to expose the keypad while creating a slight angle to match the contour of the face. The intention here is to make the use of the mobile phone more a little more comfortable, and we’re always happy to see new designs for cell phones, even if it is just a slight change.

The MOTORIZR Z8 packs some decent multimedia capabilities with a 2 megapixel camera that can shoot photos as well as video with audio straight to an MPEG4 format. The handset also houses a 16 million color QVGA display and supports video playback at up to 30 frames per second.
