T-Mobile Shadow and Nokia 7510 available today!

After the long and arduous wait for the most hardcore Shadow fans, your day has come. Just like we promised, it is now available for your calling and messaging pleasure. This new iteration of the popular HTC device sports a faster processor and also supports T-Mobile HotSpot@Home, which makes it the first Windows Mobile phone to have that feature, and also means it has Wi-Fi (great news since it’s lacking in the HSDPA department). For $149.99 with a two-year contract and qualifying data plan, this is a pretty good deal if you’re up for renewal or looking for a mid-level smartphone. If black and burgundy isn’t your thing, the phone also comes in white mint. Hit the jump for more info and details on the newly available Nokia 7510.

Nokia 7100s (Supernova) pokes its head out

Nokia 7100s (Supernova) pokes its head out

Nokia adds another device to their plain standard affair phone lineup (as compared to the flurry of E and N series devices out). Called the 7100s, or perhaps 7100 Supernova, Nokia’s little slider looks interesting enough, but geared more towards those who want to avoid all the flash, buttons, and complexity of smartphones. The details and pricing on this device are limited, but here we have a couple specs on what the Supernova will offer:

  • Symbian S40 UI
  • Tri-band GSM/EDGE (900 / 1800 / 1900) connectivity
  • QVGA TFT display with 262K colors
  • Music player
  • FM radio
  • Bluetooth 2.0 & USB 2.0
  • Opera Mini browser, email
  • Flash Lite 2.1.1 support
  • 1.3 MP camera
  • MicroSD card slot

Not sure if/when this will come to the States, but the unlocked market has fared well for most folks. Looking at the tri-band GSM/EDGE, however, it seems this phone would work best on T-Mobile’s network if you plan on snagging one unlocked. Otherwise, the feature department on this thing seems pretty lacking.

Chicks Dig Nokia; Two Upcoming Handsets Aimed at Females

Chicks Dig Nokia; Two Upcoming Handsets Aimed at Females

Details are a tad shaky right now as the original leak source for these two upcoming handsets has removed all info from the site, but it looks like Nokia will be taking aim at the fairer sex once again with two sexy S40 handsets. What’s the source you might ask? Nokia’s Polish site. Oops! It seems Nokia’s Polish webmaster has a bit of an itchy trigger finger and the info on two new handsets was up just long enough to get snagged. The two handsets, Nokia 7510 Supernova and Nokia 7xxx Supernova (the second handset is being reported as 7610 but this is unlikely as Nokia has already has a discontinued handset bearing those numbers) look to be focusing on style with functionality that won’t interest the Nseries crowd, but really isn’t too shabby. Along the same vein as Nokia’s L’Amour series, these handsets will get the job done and bring out the hazel in your eyes at the same time. Specs as follows:
