The Nexus ONE

Monday, January 4th, 2010

T-mobile US reported last week that T-Mobile will be the network powering Google’s new phone, which is apparently going to make its debut on Jan. 5.

A T-Mobile USA support page found by the blog says Google will sell the new Android-based device directly via the Web, confirming the story that emerged a few weeks ago in the Wall Street Journal. Bellevue-based T-Mobile will handle billing and rate plans for the device.

Manufacturing the new Google phone will be HTC, the Taiwanese phone maker with U.S. headquarters in Bellevue and its software lab in Pioneer Square.

The trio introduced Google’s first Android phone, the HTC-manufactured G1, in September 2008.

Google also scheduled an announcement at its headquarters on Jan. 5, the day before the Consumer Electronics Show begins in Las Vegas.

The HTC-built and (soon to be) Google-sold device runs Android 2.1 atop a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 3.7-inch, 480 x 800 display, has 512MB of ROM, 512MB of RAM, and a 4GB microSD card (expandable to 32GB). The phone is a T-Mobile device (meaning no 3G if you want to take it to AT&T), and includes the standard modern additions of a light sensor, proximity sensor, and accelerometer. The Nexus One has a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash.

Dell Mini 3i Android phone

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

The new Dell Mini 3i has gone on show for the very first time yesterday!

It’s a good looking handset with great features such as a 3 Mega Pixel camera, bluetooth, a microSD slot, Bluetooth and a large 360 by 640 pixel touch screen.

Whilst it’s a good introduction to the market for Dell, it is lacking in one essential feature.  3G.  Their new phone will only run on 2G networks making it the slowest Android phone yet!

On top of which, it doesn’t have WiFi either.

From the looks of things it’s not going to be released in the UK which probably explains the lack of those two essential features.

New Motorola Android devices to rival iPhone

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

Motorola isn’t mucking about with their next T-Mobile Android phone according to android and me.

The two new phones codenamed “Morrison” and “Sholes” pack a big punch with some serious spec. The CPU in the Sholes is a 528MHz Qualcomm MSM7201A and they have 256MB RAM. On top of which a built in 512 MB Flash ROM (Read Only Memory) and support up to 32Gb microoSDHC memory card. The display is a HVGA (320×480) and it has lots of extra sensors and regular gadgetry that you’d expect from a modern mobile device.

Take a look at the full specs here: click here for the full spec.

It looks like that kind of power and functionality will not only rival the iPhone, but blow it out of the water!
