Nokia N900 gets Android OS through a hack, looks even hotter

by 583 comments

It’s still at the proof of concept stages so don’t get too excited about it but apparently the Nokia N900 is perfectly capable of running the Android OS. As proven by the video after the break the hacker has enabled the cool QWERTY-equipped side-slider to run the two open-source platforms in a dual-boot mode.

I’m not particularly sure if going from Maemo to Android is an upgrade or downgrade as they both have their advantages but Read more »

The new iPhone V4 gossip roundup, wishes and rumors united

by 191 comments

I just stumbled upon a pretty nice roundup of all rumors about what the next iPhone could be. As you may have heard Apple prepares a big event on 27th January and most of the rumors point they will announce the first Apple Tablet (most probably named iSlate or iPad or iTablet) along with possibly the fourth generation iPhone OS. The announcement of the 4th generation iPhone is still way ahead in the future (possibly summer as usual), but that doesn’t mean there already isn’t a good pile of rumored features and specs.

by 424 comments

7 days to go until January 27 when Apple’s heavily rumored tablet will see daylight for the first time (or so I hope, at least). Or maybe it already did: while digging in the web I found a pretty intriguing video of a device which is said to be the iSlate. I don’t know how I let this one slip by but it looks pretty interesting to see.

Windows Mobile 7 sets off to a flying start with two of the hottest devices you have ever heard of

by 13 comments

WinMo fans rejoice! Not only are the rumors of the delay of Windows Mobile 7 for next year most probably false, but also the first two devices to pack the new OS are hotter than hell. And as it turns out we will actually be seeing two different version of the Windows Mobile 7 – Business Edition and Media Edition. The Business edition will be a trimmed down version that will have lower specs’ requirements (although the screen still needs to be WVGA at the least), while the Media edition will be all about multimedia playback and social network integration.

As rumor has it, LG Apollo and HTC Obsession will be the two pioneers of the new OS. LG Apollo is said to run on a 1.3GHz Qualcomm QSD8650 CPU and pack 1GB of RAM. The AMOLED display will measure 3.8” and will sport XGA resolution (1280 x 720 pixels).

Only 20 000 HTC Google Nexus One Android smartphones sold a whole week after its market launch

by 50 comments

HTC Google Nexus One is a superphone, indeed. And it seemed to have all it takes to become a market hit as well. But apperently something went wrong, because the start of its sales is seriously short of impressive? As it turns out only around 20 000 Nexus One Android smartphones have been sold during the first week after the official market launch of the device.

So, if this trend keeps up, the Google’s first smartphone might just fail to set the world alight. Let me remind you that analysts expected 5 to 6 million Nexus Ones to be sold by the end of the year.

Is Apple phasing out iPhone 3G, should we get ready for a cheaper 8GB 3GS?

by 198 comments

I’ve been hearing those rumors lately that Apple have a cheaper 8GB version of the latest 3GS ready in the oven. The sources are nothing in particular, but they add up, you know – and they come from various places. Now there’s not anything specific about market availability, but we sure hope that there will be some of those in stores around our parts on time for Christmas.

Obviously, there are one too many things to consider here. For one, Christmas coincides with the 6-month cycle that Apple usually uses for lowering their current models pricing. Introducing a new lower-spec’d model of the same generation actually sounds credible when you look at it this way. But you can bet there’s more to it. Read more »
