Opera Mobile comes to Android, first beta available within a month

by 497 comments

Android 2.2 Froyo comes with arguably the best web browser of all current mobile platforms, but you will hardly be able to tell that if you take a look at the Android Market. There are just so many alternative browsers available that you would think they are the hottest commodity around.

Mind you, I’m not complaining here – competition is a great thing and it’s the users that win the most in the end. That’s why the announcement that Opera is going to release their full-fledged Opera Mobile browser over the coming month is excellent news. Read more »

The Nokia N8 managed to survive for 42 hours (or just under two days) Read more »

Nokia N8 torn apart, a standard (and unsoldered) BL-4D battery revealed

by 30 comments

The Nokia N8 hit the shelves less a few days ago but the guys over at ifixit already gave it their disassembly treatment. The metal-clad handset has been given a rating of 8 (out of 10) for easiness of repair. Unless you need to replace the glass over the display (which requires a heat gun) you can tear the Nokia N8 flagship apart with nothing but a set of Torx screwdrivers.

And you would only need one such screwdriver to take out the standard BL-4D Nokia battery. It’s by far not that hard to change, despite the Finnish company claiming that it is not user-replaceable. Still this will probably void your warranty so you might do better taking your N8 to a Nokia service center if needed. Read more »

by 16 comments

We are pretty sure someone in the Motorola’s US division screwed up big time uploading the DROID 2 Global info on the site before the official announcement. The page was removed almost instantly but most of the information has already escaped in the wild.

The successor of the Verizon’s DROID 2 – DROID 2 Global – is a dual mode CDMA/GSM device with slightly improved specs. It will pack the world’s first 1.2GHz mobile processor and will sport a redesigned QWERTY keyboard.

It seems Verizon’s latest DROID is going global. Don’t get this wrong, DROID 2 Global is still a Verizon-only device, it’s just capable of working on GSM networks too.
