Acer Liquidmini Ferrari Edition Announced

Posted by Admin Monday, September 12, 2011

If you were unconcerned enough about money to drop a load of bucks on that Ferrari laptop, you might as well get the smartphone to match it.  It's called the Acer Liquidmini Ferrari Edition and it's every bit as ostentations.
Powered by a 600MHz CPU, the Liquidmini sounds like a terrible handset to dress in Ferrari skin.   You know, unless Ferraris rolled with Honda engines  (I mean, it can't even work Flash).  Since this isn't really a car, though, it's not that big an issue,  so we'll let the hardware decision pass.

You know what you want in a smartphone.  You want it cheap.  With a big screen. And 4G.  And cheap.  Chances are, your friends laughed at you when they heard this.  Chances are, you will want to stick the Huawei Impulse 4G in their face, since it's all that.
Announced for AT&T's network, this is actually a rebadged Ideos X5, Huawei's underpowered, but perfectly serviceable machine.  In fact, it's quite the snag for an entry-level Android phone, most of which are usually burdened with small touchscreen panels.
Details of the Huawei Impulse 4G include a 3.8-inch capacitive touchscreen display *480 x 800 resolution), a 5.0 megapixel camera module (with LED flash and 720p video capture), aGPS, faux-4G HSPA+, WiFi, Bluetooth and microSD card support.  Muscle is provided by a paltry 800MHz CPU, though,  but it can still handle Flash content via the browser (just don't expect flawless performance, though).

Cricket just got another low-end Android into their roster.  Called the Samsung Vitality, the main selling point here isn't the phone itself -- it's the fact it comes with Muve Music, Cricket's "all you can eat" music service.
Previously with the Samsung Suede feature phone, the service is open again to customers who fork over for the new candybar smartphone.  According to Cricket, the Muve Music service will be in full force this last quarter, coming to a few more releases before the year is through.
Details of the Samsung Vitality include a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display (480 x 320 resolution), a 3.5 megapixel camera module, WiFi, 3G with HSPA, Bluetooth, microSD card expansion (up to 32GB) and a 1600 mAh battery module (up to 6.5 hours of talk time).  Don't expect much in terms of raw power, though, since muscle is provided by a measly 800MHz processor.

AT&T just announced three new 4G smartphones coming into their fold that make them the primary source for Windows Phone devices.  Comprised of the HTC Titan, the Samsung Focus S and the Samsung Focus Flash, the trio of handsets all run the latest Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.
HTC Titan
First announced last week, the Titan is one premium-looking smartphone, with its brushed aluminum shell, clean slim lines and  large frame (5.18 x 2.78 x 0.39 inches).  Specs include a 4.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display (480 x 800 resolution), an 8.0 megapixel camera with dual LED flash, a 1.3 megapixel webcam in front, aGPS, 3G with HSPA, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, 16GB of built-in storage and a 1,600 mAh battery module. Processing is handled by a single-core 1.5Ghz CPU, paired with 512MB of RAM.

Blackberry Bold 9900 Announced For T-Mobile

Posted by Admin Saturday, September 3, 2011

T-Mobile just announced the first 4G handset from RIM to join its roster.  It's the Blackberry Bold 9900 and it's the thinnest Blackberry ever.
Running the latest version 7 OS, the smartphone pairs all of the platform's best features with high-speed data access for the best experience any Blackberry phone has to offer.  The sleek and streamlined appearance pays a perfect compliment, as well, to the keyboard-cum-touchscreen combo adorning the handset's face.
Details of the Blackberry Bold 9900 include a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen display (640 x 480 resolution), a four-row QWERTY keyboard, a 5.0 megapixel camera module (with LED flash and 720p recording), aGPS, WiFi, 4G (HSPA+, really), Bluetooth 2.1, 8GB of built-in storage, memory card expansion (up to 32GB) and a 1,230 mAh battery (rated at 6.3 hours of talk time).  Muscle is provided by a 1.2GHz processor, paired with 768MB of RAM.

The Samsung Conquer 4G sets itself apart by being one of the cheaper 4G-equipped phones out there.  Despite the price, it's quite the capable device, striking a good balance of hardware and features to go with the high-speed broadband connectivity.
Physically, it's a good-looking mid-sized phone that should fit perfectly fine in your pants pocket.  While it’s nowhere near premium in appearance, the textured back does give it a nice feel when cupped in hand.  To bring down the price, the display is one of the areas that the phone has made compromises for.   While the 3.5-inch panel is big enough for most uses, the resolution is a low 320 x 480 pixels.  It's serviceable, especially with otherwise ample brightness and clarity.
As a phone, the Samsung Conquer 4G made for good calls, with clear audio and natural-sounding voices on both ends.  Speakerphone phone isn't very good, though, with voices sounding hollow and even cutting out on occasion.  Battery is rated at 5.25 hours of talk time.
Samsung ditched TouchWiz for this device, choosing to go with a near-stock Android 2.3 experience, instead.  A 1Ghz Snapdragon chip provides capable processing muscle, with apps launching quickly and navigation being particularly responsive.
The Conquer 4G has all the features you expect from an Android smartphone: voice options, basic and advanced messaging, the full suite of wireless connectivity and the usual load of bundled apps.  The big draw, of course, is the compatibility with Sprint's WiMax network, which should have you streaming YouTube videos with little to no buffering.  Of course, with the low-res display, video quality isn't all that great anyway -- at least, the downloads go fast.  Plus, you can share it with other devices over WiFi.
