Exclusive: BlackBerry Storm 3 shows up, tells all

You thought we were done revealing RIM’s 2011 BlackBerry lineup? Not quite yet. In addition to the new BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Curve, and BlackBerry Torch 2, we have received photos and information about the BlackBerry Storm 3. The specifications on the Storm 3 are pretty impressive and will definitely position this Storm sequel nicely among other top-of-market handsets. It also will feature the highest resolution display to ever ship on a BlackBerry smartphone — a 800 x 480-pixel display and yes, it will have an optical trackpad (though we’re not sure why). Here is the thing, it’s entirely possible RIM will change the Storm branding on the device — codenames are Monaco and Monza for the global devices — we’ll have to wait and see. We have all the specs after the break! More →

This one should touchdown next week at CES and CellPhone Signal pegs the release date as January 19th, lining up perfectly with previous rumors. More →

T-Mobile myTouch 4G review

Here it is ladies and gentlemen, the heir apparent to the myTouch 3G throne and T-Mobile’s second HSPA+ handset, the myTouch 4G. The new device, which is manufactured by HTC, has all the trimmings of a flagship device: 1GHz processor, front and rear facing cameras, vivid touchscreen display, and, depending on whom you ask, a 4G radio. The myTouch 4G is getting the lion’s share of T-Mobile’s ad buys these days, but how does the handset perform when put to the test by your friends at BGR? Hit the jump to find out.

Samsung Continuum hands on

By on November 8, 2010 at 8:20 PM.

Samsung Continuum hands on

We just grabbed some hands on time with Samsung’s latest device to debut on Verizon Wireless, and here are some of our initial thoughts. First off, the build quality on the Continuum seems solid — definitely a notch better than the Samsung Captivate and Samsung Vibrant. The device still feels a bit plasticky and a tad light, but again, it’s better than what Samsung has put out in the recent past. The screen is fantastic. It’s a Super AMOLED display with separate “ticker” display below, though there aren’t actually two displays on there. The four menu buttons are basically silkscreened over the display, which breaks it up into two separate sections. Software then controls the main section and the ticker section, and they can work independently of each other. Pretty cool, huh? Lastly, the grip sensor. There’s a capacitive layer on the edge of the handset and as soon as you pick it up (or even just touch it), the ticker display lights up and is fully functional while the main display stays dormant.

The raw specs of the Samsung Continuum are as follows: 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 384MB RAM, 512MB ROM, 3.4-inch (480 x 800) Super AMOLED main display, 1.8-inch (96 x 480) Super AMOLED “ticker” display, 3G EV-DO Rev. A, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + ERD, 2GB internal storage, 8GB micro-SD card included (expandable up to 32GB), 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p video recording, 3G hotspot capable, DLNA capable, Android 2.1, and the SWYPE keyboard is pre-installed. We have our hands on gallery with the Continuum below followed by the press release.

Verizon Wireless updates specifications for its 4G LTE 700MHz devices

verizon-logo

LTE developers and aficionados alike can point their web browser to Verizon Wireless’ webpage to pre-register for a webcast starting 11 AM ET on Wednesday, January 20, 2010. The webcast will review the updated specifications for 4G wireless devices that will run on Verizon’s 700MHZ LTE network. Updates include but are not limited to information on address network access, SMS requirements, data retry tests, lab and signaling conformance, and details on the device approval and introduction process. If the terms “Radio Access Network” and “Retail Product Compliance” strikes a chord with your super-technical side, then you can sign up for and login to Verizon’s open development website to preview the updated specifications in PDF format right now. For those that just want to know when our mobile phones can pull down 12Mbps, Verizon is still planning to launch LTE in 25 to 30 markets in 2010 and cover most of its current 3G footprint with LTE by the end of 2013. We’re sure there will be a map for that when Verizon’s 4G finally launches. More →

Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 specifications leaked?

By on June 7, 2009 at 12:00 PM.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 specifications leaked?

A regular poster over at Mobile-review forums has leaked what he/she claims are the specifications for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2. The black and silver slider is rumored to have:

  • 8.1mpx auto focus, VGA @ 30fps (MP4 HQ)
  • 3.5 inch WVGA OLED (increased from 3.0 from X1)
  • GPS, aGPS
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • Accelerometer
  • Faster processor
  • 512 RAM
  • Custom Windows Mobile 6.5 (SE engineers customized Win6.5 which runs very. very speedy. in par with iPhone and better in some cases)
  • XPERIA Panels are modified with plenty of innovative features (PS3 remote play being one of them)
  • Upgrading to Windows Mobile 7 is supported by Xperia panels

If these specs pan out, then the X2 may be a nice jump up from the X1.You may have to wait a while to get your mitts on this handset, however. With the mention of Windows Mobile 6.5, Windows Mobile 7 and Sony Ericsson’s track record with the first Xperia handset, any potential release date is most likely way off in the distance.
