Vodafone 555 Blue takes Facebook mobile (with some cut corners)

Vodafone has outed its new "Facebook phone", the Vodafone 555 Blue, a QWERTY featurephone that promises to be a low-cost way to access the popular social network while on the move. A QWERTY candybar, the 555 Blue has a 2.4-inch non-touch display and a dedicated Facebook button that can be preset to either sharing photos, links or something else. Best of all is the price, which Vodafone says should be under €100 (£88/$145) on a prepaid tariff.

Nokia E6 Review

Nokia E6 Review

BlackBerry may be the name associated with QWERTY messaging phones, but there's a vocal cadre of Nokia users all too keen to talk about the merits of the Finnish company's keyboard-blessed candybars. The E72 met with mixed reactions, failing to quite capture affection the way its E71 predecessor did; now we have the E6 (aka Nokia E6-00), pairing keyboard and touchscreen and offering a taste of the latest Symbian flavor, Anna. Is the E6 enough to distract us from the rapid approach of Nokia's first Windows Phones? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Samsung Gravity Smart Hands-On and Unboxing

Samsung Gravity Smart Hands-On and Unboxing

I'm back today with my lucky hands on another mid-rage device from Samsung that will be on T-Mobile. We have the "cute" Samsung Gravity Smart Android Slider for you all to check out today. While the Gravity Smart wont replace the Sidekick it is a nice little phone for those that love to text, or just love hardware keyboards on their phone. It is a sleek design with nicely rounded edges, the build quality is decent but the back cover leaves something to be desired. It's no Galaxy S 4G but then again this device is not the most expensive on T-Mobile either.

T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide official: QWERTY Android with boosted camera

T-Mobile has officially announced the myTouch 4G Slide, the carrier's latest Android smartphone and another QWERTY handset from HTC. Packing HSPA+ connectivity for T-Mobile USA's 4G network, the myTouch 4G Slide has a 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen and an 8-megapixel camera; it's that camera which the carrier is most proud of, though, with improved low-light performance thanks to a new f/2.2 wide aperture lens and a backlit sensor, along with the claim of zero shutter lag and in-camera HDR.

Nokia N950 confirmed for MeeGo devs: 4-inch QWERTY slider

Nokia N950 confirmed for MeeGo devs: 4-inch QWERTY slider

Nokia's N9 certainly looks like the device to reignite complaints over the company bypassing MeeGo, but what if you're a developer and you want some physical QWERTY goodness too? The Nokia N950 developer device has also been quietly announced, a 4-inch LCD TFT 854 x 480 slider with a tilting screen, the same 1GHz OMAP3630 processor and PowerVR SGX530 graphics as the N9, and what we're guessing is a form-factor very similar to the much-leaked photo shown here.
