HTC Leo multitouch display gets video demo

While this may simply look like someone trying to catch a small fish next to a Windows Mobile phone, you might be more interested if we told you that the phone is in fact HTC's mysterious, unannounced Leo and the fish-pinching is actually a multitouch demo.  Over at PocketPT.net someone managed to score a Leo prototype, and shot a brief video demonstrating its new touchscreen skills.

Microsoft remote software “kill switch” confirmed

Microsoft remote software “kill switch” confirmed

Microsoft have been spilling the beans on more Windows Marketplace for Mobile details at Tech.Ed New Zealand, including confirmation that the company will install a remote "kill switch" for removing software from users' smartphones.  The backdoor access will be used, apparently, should Microsoft approve and then later remove a title from the Marketplace; not only will it be stripped from the virtual store shelves, but automatically removed from any devices that have installed it.

HTC Touch HD 2 Shuns Windows Mobile and Embraces Android

The Touch HD released last year, and while it held its own within its fifteen minutes of fame, like many other HTC/Windows Mobile devices out there, it quickly faded into the throes of the past. Well, it's time for HTC to release a sequel, and yes, you can guess what it's called: the Touch HD 2. But we're not getting a simple rehash this time around, or even an upgraded Windows Mobile 6.5.

We weren't so keen on Toshiba's TG01 back when we reviewed the Snapdragon-based smartphone in July.  While the spec sheet paints an alluring picture, the failings both of Windows Mobile 6.1 and the UI tweaks Toshiba attempted to address that with meant we couldn't recommend it over its HTC WinMo counterparts.  Now Toshiba are back with the TG01 Windows phone variant, the same hardware as before but running Windows Mobile 6.5.

Samsung Omnia II Up for Pre-Order on Amazon, but for Sanity’s Sake You Probably Shouldn’t Look

Samsung Omnia II Up for Pre-Order on Amazon, but for Sanity’s Sake You Probably Shouldn’t Look

Amazon is pretty much a bastion of information at this point, isn't it? Things keep popping up on their site, both locally and globally that would lead most manufacturers to pull their hair out in frustration. And while we're sure that this time around, in regards to Samsung, no one is all that upset with the phone finding its way to the digital shelves, we're sure that someone has to be upset.
