Mobiado "Grand Line" QWERTY handset spied

Messaging phones are hotter than Hansel right now and apparently Mobiado is targeting nouveau riche as the next demographic to jump on the bandwagon. BlackBerry Bold? T-Mobile G1? Even the HTC Touch Pro2? No respectable heir would be caught dead stepping out of his G Class with one of those pauper phones. Enter the upcoming QWERTY offering from Mobiado pictured above. As of now all we know is that this puppy will be among several handsets that combine to form the new “Grand Line” and case materials include mother of pearl and sapphire crystal. Oh, and it’ll be expensive. What’s up, Vertu? Hit the jump for another shot.

Dell to launch the Adamo tomorrow?

Dell to launch the Adamo tomorrow?

A sponsored advertisement on Google’s Ireland website may have inadvertently leaked the release date for the much hyped Dell Adamo. The sponsored link for Dell Adamo promises that we can “Discover the love story on 17/3″ and sends the user to Dell’s Adamo splash page. Sure this could be another slick marketing ploy but it could mean we’re all in for a treat tomorrow — a very expensive treat. We must admit that a St. Patrick’s Day launch revealed by an Irish website sounds delightfully ironic, doesn’t it? Maybe Dell will even launch a special model in green to go along with all the green beer that will be flowing. No? Ok, probably not.

Dell freshens up Adamo teaser site

Dell freshens up Adamo teaser site

There is still a massive shroud of mystery surrounding the upcoming Adamo line of high-end laptops by Dell. The scrappy Texas start up-turned PC giant semi-announced the line last month at CES, showing off a sexy black laptop, saying essentially nothing about it and allowing no one to turn it on. Smooth. Dell just updated its Adamo microsite to include a new Flash layout with links to a bunch of coverage Adamo has received thus far (and one link to a video that has nothing to do with the Adamo), along with a whimsical intro and a few fields where you can sign up for future info. There is still very little known about Dell’s luxury line of inevitably overpriced laptops but from the looks of things we may soon be in store for a new round of details. For the time being however, basic specs, metal cases, spun metal trackpads, backlit keys, high quality materials and luxury-level price tags are the only details you can take to the bank.

Thanks, Rupam and J.C.!
