Sony Ericsson Kurara leaks again: 8.1MP S60 AMOLED smartphone

Sony Ericsson Kurara leaks again: 8.1MP S60 AMOLED smartphone

The floodgates are open and Sony Ericsson's Kurara is spilling through them.  Having been spotted in the wild yesterday, the touchscreen Satio sibling has made a second appearance getting up close and personal with a carbonated beverage.  No more hardware specs to share - though the HD logo on the back is missing on this particular unit - so we're left with the expectation of a 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen, Symbian S60 OS and 8.1-megapixel autofocus camera.

Sony Ericsson Rachael mediascape UI gets leaked video demo

If our assumptions are correct, this coming week should see Sony Ericsson officially unveil their first Android smartphone, the handset variously known as the Sony Ericsson Rachael (or Rachel), XPERIA X3 and X10 and - most recently - the Sony Ericsson Infinity.  We've already seen a video demo of what Sony Ericsson's custom UI might look like (and darned pretty it is too) but now a second demo has emerged and gadzooks it has us interested.

Technology conventions aren’t dying – they’re evolving

If this year's Mobile World Congress taught us one thing, it's that no matter how interesting and innovative the gadget makers and software developers of our global community are, it's the top brands that end up making or breaking the show. Make or break the show for the press, that is. Case in point: our several articles written from our chat with Google's Mathias Duarte - they ended up easily becoming some of the most popular posts we had this week, and Google didn't reveal any new products at the convention. In fact, they didn't have a stand - the chat we had wasn't even on the map. And yet, there it is - Google stole the show anyway.

Smartphone Screens: How Big is Too Big?

Smartphone Screens: How Big is Too Big?

I head up the Consumer Devices group at Current Analysis, where we have two complementary products: data - we track product pricing, availability, and specs - and analysis - our assessment on how competitive various products and initiatives are. I recently had a client ask a question that crossed both: how many smartphones today have super-sized screens, and how big is too big? (I warned them that the answer would make a great SlashGear column.)

Angry Birds devs admit lightweight version in works for underpowered Android phones

Angry Birds devs admit lightweight version in works for underpowered Android phones

In a move likely to stoke controversy over Android fragmentation, Angry Birds developer Rovio Mobile has announced that, because of issues with low-power smartphones proving unable to cope with the game's processing requirements, they will be developing a second, "lightweight" version for users with such phones. "We have hesitated to create multiple versions of Angry Birds for the Android platform" the company said, "but judging by the feedback we have received, we feel that by providing a lightweight solution, we are doing a favour for our fans."
