We hope you've not stabbed your credit card details in for that Sony VAIO P order yet, as ECS have an alternative that might take your fancy.  The ECS T800 netbook has the same long-and-narrow form-factor of the VAIO, but pairs it with an 8.1-inch LCD, a choice of 800MHz or 1GHz Texas Instruments OMAP3 processors, and the Android OS.

A second video demo of the Samsung I7500 Android smartphone has emerged, this time the handiwork of Tech65.  As we saw in the first video, it's the AMOLED touchscreen that really makes the I7500 stand out: at 3.2-inches and 320 x 480 resolution it's the same size and pixel count as on the HTC Magic and T-Mobile G1, but we're hoping for better overall runtime along with the brighter colors.

Nokia have announced the E52, a S60 handset they're calling "voice optimized".  Boasting eight hours of talktime from a full charge, the Nokia E52 also has noise cancellation together with the email UI from the Nokia E75.  Of course, while the focus might be voice calls, Nokia couldn't help throwing in other modern-day niceties such as GPS and a 3.2-megapixel camera.

There's also a 2.4-inch QVGA display and access to the Nokia Ovi services, plus HSDPA and HSUPA for high-speed mobile data access.  It'll be available in silver and a rather sludgy brown.

HTC Touch Diamond2 review

It's set to be a tough year for smartphones, and there's plenty of change afoot as companies battle amid tightening customer purse-strings.  The new iPhone is set to arrive over the summer; Palm's Pre is imminent, and Microsoft have the latest incarnation of Windows Mobile waiting in the wings.  Into that fray, HTC launch the Touch Diamond2, likely one of the last smartphones to use WM6.1 and an update to what was considered, when it launched a year ago, one of the game-changing handsets of Microsoft's platform.  Can the HTC Touch Diamond2 maintain that legacy, and will TouchFLO 3D improvements sufficiently mask the aging OS?  SlashGear set to finding out.
