T-Mobile Pulse aka Huawei 8220 up for preorder

It's certainly not the first we've heard of the T-Mobile Pulse - aka the Huawei 8220 - but today's spilling of information is perhaps the most comprehensive spec sheet and all-round renders we've seen so far.  The Android OS 1.5 handset has shown up for preorder on a Dutch website, locked to T-Mobile but sold without a contract for €257 ($368) if you're willing to take your chances with third-party unlock merchants.

Modu 2 with 3.5G and touchscreen hitting US & Europe in 2010

Modu's modular-jacket cellphone may already be on sale in Israel, but don't expect to see it land in the US or the UK any time soon; according to the company, "the device just isn't good enough for demanding Brits and Americans who like to surf the internet and stay connected."  CEO Dov Moran followed up that slice of honesty (or was it a snub against the other locations the first-gen Modu will see a release in?) with the news that the Modu 2 will arrive in 2010 offering both a touchscreen and a full QWERTY jacket.

Samsung Omnia II GT-i8000 clears FCC with AT&T bands, plus video demo

It's not the first video we've seen of Samsung's Omnia II GT-i8000 and it's very unlikely to be the last, but news that the dualband 850/1900MHz 3G HSDPA/HSUPA version of the AMOLED touchscreen smartphone has cleared the FCC is definitely worth celebrating with some moving pictures.  Beyond the AT&T and Rogers Canada friendly wireless bands there's little here that we didn't know already, but don't let that disappoint you: the Omnia II is still a very tempting smartphone.
