I mentioned early this month that the T-Mobile G2x smartphone had hit eBay early after a geek managed to buy one before they were supposed to launch. That early smartphone sold for a whopping $800 (USD).
If you think that the Motorola Atrix is a step in the right direction for mobile devices, then you should definitely keep an eye out for the Compufon. Made by Kosmaz Technologies, the Android-powered smartphone has both tablet and netbook modes.
Geeks are an interesting lot. We all want to be the first to get our hands on things no matter if you are a car geek, a game geek, or a gadget geek. Being first is cool, unless the first release of something has big issues, and then things aren’t so cool.
The new Casio G-SHOCK watch will come with Bluetooth connectivity so that it can adjust time all over the world by connecting with your smartphone to constantly keep its time in sync, including timezone changes. That’s kind of interesting because you won’t have to set your watch back or forth anymore.
The Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone was unveiled a while back, and the thing looks really nice and has solid specifications. Apparently, some of the smartphones will be packing NVIDIA Tegra 2 under the hood and others won’t.
Kyocera caught everyone’s attention when they introduced Echo, a dual touchscreen phone running Android. The Echo didn’t stay unique for long though, because Fujitsu recently showed off their own dual touchscreen Android phone at the Mobile World Congress 2011.
Kyocera isn’t exactly well known in the smartphone industry. Until today that is, with the unveiling of the Echo, which has two 3.5″ touchscreens that can be used as a single 4.7″ screen with an equivalent resolution of 960 x 800.
Nokia isn’t a cool company in my book. I have never seen a phone for Nokia that I looked at and thought, “Wow that is cool.” Mostly I look at Nokia and think booooring. Nokia Beta Labs has rolled out a really cool new download for Nokia owners today that is actually something I wish my iPhone had.
It’s as if Xzibit came up with the idea behind VideoSurf: “Yo dawg, I heard you like videos, so we made it so you can search for videos using videos.” Currently in development, the smartphone app will let users find more information about a video and the people in it just by capturing the video using their smartphone’s camera.
A start-up company called Viewdle showed off some interesting smartphone software at CES. Their app can recognize faces in real time and automatically tag them, using either data from social networks or a user-created database from videos and photos on the phone itself.
BodyMedia unveiled their latest FIT Armband BW that will connect to your devices using Bluetooth. This means that it will connect to iOS devices, as well as cell phones, etc.
It will collect information about how many calories are burned, steps are taken, and real time physical activity.
LG’s new slimline smartphone offers a svelte 9.2mm profile, and a new display LG calls “NOVA.” The new tech offers a super-bright screen that outputs 700 nits of brightness, and is about 15% more energy-efficient than prior LG smartphone displays.
If you’ve got any doubts that having the latest mobile hardware in hand won’t improve your web-surfing experiences, look no further than this video demo showing off the LG Optimus 2X smartphone compared to the iPhone 4.
It’s safe to say that smartphones are becoming the center of digital life of most of the people in the US. When you are lost, you simply open Google Maps, and you’re found. When you need to check up on prices, you just open the right app and then you’ve saved some money.
Apple’s iPhone 4 is selling like crazy, despite having been on the market for a while now. DigiTimes reports that its sources in Taiwan are saying that Apple has upped their estimates for the number of iPhones sold globally for Q1 2011.
