HTC Desire 2 may be set for MWC unveiling

As we near one of the biggest shows of the year for the mobile industry — Mobile World Congress in Barcelona — there always seems to be a steady stream of leaks. Maybe excited moles dig a bit deeper this time of year. In any event, German HTC fan blog HTCInside managed to procure a purported screen shot of Vodafone Germany’s internal inventory system, which clearly shows an entry for “Desire 2 HTC.” Details are pretty scarce for the time being, and by that we mean there are absolutely no details to accompany this screen shot. The Desire 2 could certainly end up being a European version of one of the exciting new HTC phones introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show last month, but it could also be something entirely new for the European market. Only time will tell — and since MWC is less than two weeks away, we won’t have to wait very long. More →

White iPhone 4 appears in Vodafone Germany’s system

White iPhone 4 appears in Vodafone Germany’s system

The world is still holding onto hope that a white iPhone 4 will some day become a reality and if a purported screen capture of Vodafone Germany’s inventory system is to be believed, that day may soon be upon us. Verizon Wireless announced the iPhone 4 just last week and it included an image of a white iPhone on its website in the process. While the inclusion of the white iPhone was an accident and the image was subsequently taken down, the very fact that Verizon’s Web team was working with images of the white iPhone was viewed by many as a promising sign. Today, a series of images reportedly shows entries for a white iPhone in Vodafone Germany’s inventory system. The source of the pictures claims that the albino iPhone should become available soon, so perhaps white iPhone fans will actually have a few months to enjoy the phone before its successor launches this summer.

Motorola MILESTONE now official: multitouch, but no Google Maps Navigator

Motorola MILESTONE now official: multitouch, but no Google Maps Navigator

02-motorola-milestone

Good news for Android 2.0 hungry Europeans this early afternoon as Motorola has officially announced the European (read: GSM/UMTS) version of the DROID. Dubbed the Motorola MILESTONE, the two handsets appear to be identical spec wise save for the obvious differences in cellular radios. Oddly enough, the MILESTONE will feature one thing on every DROID lovers wish list — multitouch. The reason why the MILESTONE has multitouch while its American cousin does not isn’t clear, but the general feeling is this is directly related to some intellectual property that Apple might or might not own. If any American’s are feeling a bit snookered by this, they can take comfort knowing that they still have the market cornered on Google Maps Navigation as the MILESTONE will instead come pre-loaded with MOTONAV in its place. Italy and Germany will be the first European nations to get the Motorola MILESTONE, with the handset being available from The Phone House, O2 and Vodafone in the latter country starting November 9th.
