Windows Mobile 6.5

Toshiba TG02 and K01 hands-on

Toshiba TG02 and K01 hands-on

Toshiba's two new Windows Mobile 6.5 devices ended up a little overshadowed by Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 launch, which is a shame since we're hoping the company has learnt its lesson from the mediocre TG01.  One of our biggest complaints was the poor custom UI; that's been replaced with a slick new 3D interface, which looks pretty impressive on the 4.1-inch WVGA display.  It also does duty on the Toshiba K01, which basically takes the TG02 and adds a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Android HTC Dragon, 4.3-inch WinMo Huashan tipped in Dopod roadmap

Android HTC Dragon, 4.3-inch WinMo Huashan tipped in Dopod roadmap

Talk of the HTC Dragon has been minimal since the Nexus One grabbed the limelight earlier this year, but a leaked Dopod roadmap for 2010 has reignited some of that old speculation.  According to their timetable, the Dragon is set to arrive in China come Q2 2010, complete with Android, a 3.6-inch WVGA display and HSDPA.  It'll have company, too; shortly after comes the A6388, a smaller, cheaper 3.4-inch HVGA HSDPA Android device.

HTC Trophy gets clearly pictured: QWERTY/touchscreen WinMo candybar [Update: It's a fan render]

HTC Trophy gets clearly pictured: QWERTY/touchscreen WinMo candybar [Update: It's a fan render]

HTC's 2010 smartphone roadmap may have skewed heavily toward Android, but that wasn't to say the company were planning to abandon Windows Mobile altogether.  The first clear render of the HTC Trophy - a Windows Mobile 6.5 candybar with a 3-inch VGA capacitive touchscreen and a full QWERTY keyboard - has leaked, and despite the OS it looks to have potential.

Update: Too good to be true; this isn't HTC's work but that of ElCondor from xda-developers; somewhere along the line his watermark has been edited out.  He's done a great job, too: compare it to the fuzzy image in the leaked roadmap.  If the Trophy looks this good in real life, we'll take one! [Thanks Sohaib!]

T-Mobile USA HD2 gets memory boost; Euro model may miss WinMo7?

T-Mobile USA HD2 gets memory boost; Euro model may miss WinMo7?

US HTC HD2 owners could see their patience rewarded with boosted specifications when the Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone arrives on T-Mobile in March.  The official listing for the handset has gone live on HTC's site, and where the original European model packs a 512MB ROM and 448MB RAM, the US version will apparently get 1GB ROM and 576MB RAM.  That should mean the US-spec HD2 runs faster and has more room for onboard applications, as well as having longer-term implications for Windows Mobile 7 upgrades.
