LG to release several Windows Phone 7 handsets in 2010

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on July 28th, 2010

Once again an LG representative has confirmed that a Windows Phone 7-powered handset is on the way and due in September. That handset is expected to be called the Pacific. The company also said that more WP7 devices are coming before year’s end.

LG is the third largest cellphone maker, behind Nokia and Samsung. Its phone shipments are slowly increasing, but it has fallen into losses due to a lack of smartphones, which has allowed Apple, RIM and other companies to grow much faster. Most of LG’s efforts this past year have focused on Android with only small efforts spent on Windows Mobile.

The specs are pretty impressive and include 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPUs, 3.5-inch AMOLED 800×480 touchscreen displays, Dolby mobile surround sound, terrestrial DMB, Wi-Fi and GPS with 5-megapixel cameras.

No Replaceable Batteries in Windows Phone 7 Handsets

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on April 1st, 2010


This was an April Fools joke. Looks like many of you fell for it too. Silly fools. Okay, they got me too. Don’t you hate April 1st?
Expecting some replacable batteries in Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 handsets? Don’t. Microsoft is disallowing user-replaceable batteries. And why not? Apple already does this and sales are just fine. So they are following suit.

It’s annoying, but the end result is apparently that it helps in creating a better looking handset. So if you were hoping for a phone that is the opposite of Apple’s, forget it. How do you feel about the whole swappable/non-swappable battery issue?

Posted in Mobile Phones by Darrin Olson on February 4th, 2010

Symbian, the world’s most popular smartphone operating system, has announced that it’s going open source about four months ahead of schedule. This move will allow more software developers to have access to develop applications and mobile devices based on the operating system.

The plan was to complete the transition of putting the OS under the Eclipse development license and work out deals with existing third party developers by later this summer. Symbian was able to move ahead more quickly, most likely to try and keep an edge on the newer open-source Android mobile operating system from Google.

Samsung S8000 and M8000 handsets leakedIt looks like Samsung was ultra serious about releasing about a million touchscreen devices this year. Two more handsets have been leaked and despite the fact that they look exactly the same, they have some differences.

Both pack in a 240 x 400 resolution touchscreen and both have a home button. Their exteriors make them look like twins, but under the hood is where the differences are. We don’t know much about the S8000, but we do know it features a 5-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and autofocus. The M8000 also has the camera but is marketed toward the music-listening crowd with a music key on the screen and a 3.5mm headset jack.
