SlashGear Week in Review – Week 46 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 46 2008

It's been a mobile device bonanza this week, with the AT&T Fuze landing at SlashGear and promptly getting hauled over to the Sprint HTC Touch Pro for a damned good comparing.  Meanwhile HTC have set tongues wagging by fettling a version of the Touch HD for a Russian WiMAX carrier: they assure us that the HTC MAX 4G won't be showing up anywhere else, but forgive us if we're natural sceptics.  Meanwhile Verizon finally confirmed that the BlackBerry Storm 9530 would hit stores on November 24th, priced from $199.99, AT&T released the QuickFire, and Nokia confirmed the open-secret that is the E63 smartphone.

After details of the upcoming Nokia E63 smartphone leaked last week we've been waiting for some live sightings of the S60 3rd Edition device.  That's come courtesy of Mobile Industry Review, who grabbed some hands-on time with the E63 - albeit branded Exx - at the Symbian Smartphone Show.  While there's no new information here, the device was confirmed as looking "like an E71, but it's plastic".

Nokia E63 3G smartphone photos & specs leak

Details and photos of the upcoming Nokia E63 have leaked, suggesting that the handset is a more basic, entry-level version of the E71 smartphone.  According to the new information, which is yet to be confirmed, the E63 will come in three versions, all GSM with UMTS HSPDA, a 240 x 320 display, full QWERTY keyboard, WiFi and Bluetooth.  Running Symbian v9.1 S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1, the E63 is thicker than the E71 and has an all-plastic body with only minimal metal highlights.  Two of the three versions will have a 2-megapixel camera, although none have a front-facing camera.

TeleNav GPS arrives on the E62

TeleNav GPS arrives on the E62

One of the more annoying features of the Garmin sat-nav unit I use is its unwillingness to put up with my human foibles.  Spelling mistakes, mis-pressed letters, all are held against me, and the Nuvi's main method of punishment is saying something along the lines of "that location doesn't exist, you moron."  Thankfully the TeleNav software, which Cingular has today announced for the Nokia E62 smartphone, has so-called "Fuzzy Search", seemingly detecting and filling in addresses according to current or commonly-used locations, as well as automatically correcting for mistakes in spelling or name-structure.  Check out further details after the cut.

Is this the E62i in the wild? Nokia’s next-gen smartphone spotted

Thank goodness for the cellphone-addicts at Mobile-Review; it it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have the pleasure of blurry pre-announcement phones to make us think twice about that upgrade that an hour ago seemed inevitable.  Latest to slip out is what looks like the Nokia E62i - upgrade, obviously, to the E62 - complete with redesigned control-pad and extra buttons, a rear-mounted camera and, perhaps, a little less bulk around the belly.  It's a cruel smartphone world out there, with models like the Samsung BlackJack making it seem like you have to be slim to be sexy.

SlashGear’s October Review

SlashGear’s October Review

As October draws to a close and we edge towards the eight week countdown to Christmas, it's time for another SlashGear Month in Review.  And let's face it, if you haven't got a few additions to your letter to Santa from the past 30 days or so, what the golden trouser inflation have you been doing?

QWERTY Shakedown, E62 versus Dash – Fight! Fight! Fight!

QWERTY Shakedown, E62 versus Dash – Fight! Fight! Fight!

I love a good cellphone Battle Royale - two cocky, amped up handsets enter the ring and then, with a fair spritzing of delicate electronics being scattered left right and centre, only one emerges, sweaty and triumphant.  Or perhaps it's Pro American Wrestling I like, and am having to make do with infoSync pitting the T-Mobile Dash against Cingular's Nokia E62 (you can see our own review here). 

In an eight round match, the QWERTY-pair are tested on their design, messaging abilities and multimedia skills amongst others - you'll just have to read the article to see which comes out on top.

The Nokia E62 Review- smartphone for the masses?

The Nokia E62 Review- smartphone for the masses?

Mobile productivity fanatics are having a good Fall 2006- along with the Motorola Q and the Treo 680, Nokia has also jumped into the game with a smartphone meant to reach more than just the average business consumer. As first reported by SlashGear on September 12th , and regardless of their hopes, the Nokia E62 is another productivity-driven smartphone that is most suitable for business people on the go. Released on September 29th and available exclusively through Cingular Wireless, the E62 is the U.S. version of the E61, which has been available in Europe since earlier this year. Nokia designed the E62 as an attempt to bridge the gap between corporate users and everyday people, and priced it at an affordable $199 with a 2-year contract, and even as low as $150 with a mail-in rebate from Cingular.

SlashGear’s September Review

SlashGear’s September Review

Blimey, it's been quite a month.  SlashGear has been packed to the metaphorical gills with lovely juicy tech, and they don't come much juicier than the fresh fruit of Apple.  The Cupertino cuties have been making headlines with their new iPod range - the updated fifth generation and the rather mini-like Nano with its svelte metal casing.  It's not all been good news, however, as the latest update to OS X causes some users problems and the company is forced to admit that some MacBooks are suffering random shutdown issues.

Also taking a beating is Sony, who just can't seem to ride the PS3 wave smoothly these days.  First shipping numbers are way way down on what was expected - thanks to manufacturing delays - and then, if you managed to find a console, your wallet will get gouged when you buy a game for it.  We're talking $76 to $84, which is heavy stuff on top of a machine costing $425 upwards.  Sony attempted to stem the bad press by taking $59.99 game pre-orders, but is it enough?

Vaja E61 case reviewed

Vaja E61 case reviewed

So you've impressed your friends, family and even yourself with your new Nokia E61.  They marvel at its thumb keyboard, gasp at its bright, clear screen, coo with appreciative glee at the slick menus and operation.

And then you drop it on the floor and it gets a ruddy great scratch across it.  All of a sudden, nobody invites you to parties anymore.  Elderly women spit at you in the street.

Andrew Liszewski is a lucky E61 owner and also pretty damn careful about not letting his cellular pride and joy come to any harm.  Having stored it in an old iPaq case at first, he has eventually given it the respect it deserves and invested in a Vaja leather case.

Is it any good?  Is $60 a ridiculous amount of money to spend on a case?  Do sheep have hidden compartments where they store knitting needles?  Two of these questions are answered in Andrew's lovely review.

HTC Excalibur Is T-Mobile Dash

HTC Excalibur Is T-Mobile Dash

Words cannot even begin to describe how awesome the HTC Excalibur feels in the palm of your hand, and watching videos only gets you there half way. You just need to hold it to understand why I’m giving the HTC Excalibur Best In Show at CTIA Wireless IT and Entertainment in LA 2006. I’ll elaborate more on this in a later article when I do a side-by-side comparison between the HTC Excalibur and Nokia’s E62 smartphone.

HTC Excalibur Is T-Mobile DashThe HTC Excalibur is also known as the XDA Cosmo, available in Germany through O2 network. There are rumblings that T-Mobile will score the HTC Excalibur; called Dash. I confirm this report thanks to a shot I’d captured during my photo shoot at the show. Check out the screen shot below showing the T-Mobile logo. Also, thanks to a screen shot via MoDaCo, shows the Dash’s System Information revealing the model name as T-Mobile Dash. More after the jump!
