More on Samsung's upcoming B7610 Louvre this morning, and the suggestion that in fact the handset is set to arrive as the Samsung Omnia Pro. New photos, including a live-shot of the smartphone, have emerged, together with specifications seemingly confirming the 3.5-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen, HSDPA/HSUPA and WiFi connectivity, and a 5.1-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash.
A new image purporting to be of Samsung's B7610 "Louvre" Windows Mobile smartphone has emerged, complete with the latest version of the handset's spec-list. The Louvre is believed to have a 3.5-inch AMOLED WVGA display, 5-megapixel autofocus camera with image stabilization, and 3G 7.2Mbps HSDPA connectivity.
Apple have announced the iPhone 3G S, a super-fast version of the iPhone 3G where the "S" stands for "Speed". Packed into the same casing as the existing 3G model, the 3G S has a 3-megapixel camera with autofocus, auto white-balance and the ability to record VGA resolution video at 30fps. It also supports 7.2Mbps HSDPA, network depending, and has a faster processor that, Apple say, makes everything on-average twice as fast.
It feels like we've been waiting a long time for the HTC Touch Pro2 to arrive, though really it was only announced back in February at Mobile World Congress. The flagship smartphone - which packs a 3.6-inch WVGA resistive touchscreen, 3G HSPA, WiFi b/g and a full QWERTY keyboard - is the second half of HTC's two-part Touch refresh, along with the Diamond2, and you can see our video unboxing after the cut.
It looks, judging by these images, like someone has been faxing something they shouldn't have, but when the leak is a detailed spec-sheet for the BlackBerry Tour 9630 we won't quibble over it coming on thermal paper. According to MobileSyrup's source, the Tour 9630 will arrive on Canadian carrier Bell in mid-July, bringing with it an HVGA 480 x 360 display, 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera with flash, quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 2100MHz UMTS/HSPA and 800/1900MHz EVDO Rev.A.
Whether the world (or, more accurately, the US) needs an unlocked Windows Mobile smartphone with the required band support for 7.2Mbps HSDPA and 2.1Mbps HSUPA on both AT&T and T-Mobile remains to be seen. Nevertheless, Pharos believe that's just what network-hopping executives are looking for, hence the triband UMTS Traveler 137.
Sony Ericsson have announced a pair of eco-friendly cellphones, the GreenHeart C901 (left) and Naite (right). They're each part of what's set to be an ongoing GreenHeart range, with recycled materials, minimal packaging, non-toxic paints and even an electronic on-phone user-guide rather than a printed manual.
The Amazon Kindle may be sitting pretty as the best-known ebook reader out there right now, but all that could change if some of the new breed of e-ink devices have their way. Computex 2009 has seen a few new designs introduced, often packing various wireless technologies and/or touchscreens. IAC stacks up the wireless, with WiMAX, EVDO and WiFi, while Netronix has been showing multiple sizes from 6-inches through to 9.7-inches.
LG have announced that their GD910 watch phone will begin shipping in Europe come July, initially on carrier Orange, before spreading to unnamed carriers in Asia, the Middle East, Australia and Latin America. The LG GD910 has a 1.43-inch touchscreen LCD and supports 7.2Mbps HSDPA, video calls and media playback.
Acer's F900 smartphone - first announced back at Mobile World Congress in February - has finally launched. Offering Windows Mobile 6.1, the F900 has a 3.8-inch WVGA touchscreen, HSDPA/HSUPA connectivity and Acer's new 2.0 User Interface on top of the Microsoft OS.
The F900 is shipped with Internet Explorer 6 with Adobe Flash Lite support, together with Acer's Easy Keyboard. There's also a YouTube app, Google Maps and GPS. Around the back, there's a 3-megapixel camera.
The Acer F900 is now available in the UK, unlocked, at £429 ($709). No word on whether Acer will be offering upgrades to Windows Mobile 6.5 once the new OS reaches the market, but the fact that the F900 has a Windows-logo key (a feature of WM6.5 devices) rather than the traditional Home icon does suggest that owners will be able to update.
