Best Buy will offer HTC Touch Dual

April 1, 2008 |


U.S. based Touch Dual fans will finally be catching up with the rest of the world.  Japan, Europe, and the Middle East have been playing with the HTC Touch Dual for nearly six months, but here Best Buy is plated to offer the Touch Dual by the end of this quarter.  The HTC Touch Dual will feature TouchFLO, Office Mobile, Live HTC Home, a 2-megapixel camera, quad-band GSM support and HSDPA connectivity which will all be running on Microsoft's latest Windows Mobile 6.1.  Naturally we are left in the dark about the price the device will have, but I'm sure it will not be much less than the $600 price point you can get it for now from your favorite cell phone importer.

HTC Touch launched as Verizon XV6900

March 31, 2008 |

Verizon HTC Touch

Verizon is set to launch the HTC Touch in the coming days at the XV6900.  No one knows why Verizon insists on reducing more and more phone models to a combination of letters and numbers, but at least it doesn't change how the phone works.

Verizon's XV6900 will feature all the same bells and whistles as the Sprint and the Alltel versions of the HTC Touch.  One of the new things we have just learned about is that like Verizon's XV6900, both Sprint and Alltel's touch devices have a GSP recevier already built into the device, but they have been disabled through the carriers software.  Personally, I'm not sure why Sprint and Alltel would want to disable one of the best features of this phone, but it definitely gives Verizon the upper hand, even if the XV6900 is about five month behind the competition.

March 20, 2008 |

S2P on XDA-developers.com

It seems like the developers over at www.xda-developers.com have given us yet another great application. S2P (Slide2Play), developed by A_C gives Windows Mobile uses a music experience that comes close to that of the iPhone and the iPod Touch. S2P supports WMA, MP3 and WAV files with its own Cover Flow insired album navigation.

S2P on XDA-developers.com

By far, S2P is one of the most intuitive media players to date for Windows Mobile. A few main features are still missing, such as playlist support and song duration. A_C has assured the xda-developers community that these features should be implemented shortly with a new release.

To download S2P, please visit xda-developers.com

Pre-order HTC Shift from Sprint

March 20, 2008 |

Ever since the HTC Shift hit the FCC a few months back, I knew this day was inevitable.  It seems as though we will be blessed with a Sprint Version of the HTC Shift which has recevied rave reviews as one of the best UMPC device on the market to date.  The HTC Shift offers a unique experience with both Windows Mobile 6 and Windows Vista installed.  the device allows you to access e-mail, contact, calendars, and any other WM6 feature without having to boot up the device completely.  The unique slide and tilt feature reveals a wonderful keyboard which has been lacking in most UMPCs.

HTC pattents the awkward slider

March 18, 2008 |

htc-new-slider

The sliding keyboard has a lot of fans, but every sliding phone seems to have its own rules.  It seems HTC has take the game to a whole new level with their new pattent which would allow a device to slide in horizontally and vertically to reveal the dialpad in one direction and then the keyboard in the other. the idea is nice, but implementation may be a bit tricky.  The mock up image above saw photoshopped based on the sketches which HTC used to file their pattent.  You can see what no matter which way the keyboard slides (even when closed) some part of the keyboard is exposed. 

Lets just hope that HTC created this awkward sketch simply to keep us guessing about what they are really planning to use this pattent on.  There are currently a few devices on the market with sldie two directions, but they have a distinctly seperate dialpad and keyboard.
