RIM BlackBerry Bold is official

RIM finally took the covers off of the highly anticipated and much-rumored BlackBerry Bold smartphone. RIM wants you to think of the phone's beautiful display when you think of the "Bold." The BlackBerry Bold is no doubt beautiful, at least for a BlackBerry anyways. So everyone, please say and give a warm welcome to the all-new BlackBerry Bold.

The BlackBerry Bold features a 480x320 pixel resolution, 65,000-color display, a new design that looks much more elegant than previous BlackBerry models. The Bold sports curvier edges and a silver trim complementing the black casing. Flip it over, and you'll find that RIM has added a leatherette texture to the back. The days of cheap and slippery plastic are gone. RIM intends to sell replaceable backplates in different colors, including blue, gray and red. The Bold weighs 4.7 ounces and measures 4.5-inches tall by 2.6-inches wide and only 0.5 inches deep. The blackberry Bold also has a new QWERTY keyboard that's a more modernized version of the Curve. People who have used the new layout have commented that it's pretty easy to use thanks to its "large-ish" buttons with some spacing between the keys.

Android is coming, how will handset manufacturers handle the relationship between their Windows Mobile handsets and Android handsets?

Android is coming, how will handset manufacturers handle the relationship between their Windows Mobile handsets and Android handsets?

Android phones are starting to slowly come out of the woodwork with no official production ready models being announced yet. However there is an event in London involving HTC on May 6th, a company that vowed to release the first Android phone. They are also known for making some of the best Windows Mobile handsets that are on the market. So the question is, how does Microsoft feel about this, and more specifically, how will manufacturers like HTC keep the peace within their own companies?

Klegg Electronics Genesis V1803 Camcorder reviewed – not so great

Klegg Electronics Genesis V1803 Camcorder reviewed – not so great

This digital camcorder from Klegg is like the Swiss Army knife of digital camcorders. However much like the knife, it can do a lot of things, but isn’t particularly well versed at any one of them. This particular digital camcorder can record video, capture still images, play video games, read ebooks, play music, take voice notes, and can’t manage to do any of them spectacularly.
