SlashGear Week in Review – Week 51 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 51 2009

Here we are again with another week in review, the last week in review before Christmas! That Google Nexus One smartphone that seems incapable of staying out of pictures and video popped up again with word at first that it was good for EDGE on AT&T. A later update found that support for AT&T at all was unknown.

iPhone pips WinMo in US smartphone marketshare

Apple have pulled ahead of Microsoft in terms of smartphone market share, according to a comScore report detailing October's US mobile traffic.  The research firm has been tracking month-by-month usage across multiple platforms, and while RIM still leads the way with roughly 15m devices in use, the iPhone has pulled ahead of Windows Mobile's roughly 7m devices by around 2m.

AT&T announce HP iPAQ Glisten 3G WinMo world-phone

AT&T announce HP iPAQ Glisten 3G WinMo world-phone

You have to give HP and AT&T some credit: it takes guts to call your new smartphone the HP iPAQ Glisten.  Kicking off with a name that turns some peoples' stomachs doesn't seem like a particularly clever plan, but AT&T are hoping that the specifications of this particular 3G world-phone will help them see past the unusual moniker.

The iPAQ Glisten gets an AMOLED touchscreen display, Windows Mobile 6.5 OS and a 3.1-megapixel camera, together with both WiFi and GPS.  They've also packed it with all the 3G bands you'll need not only in the US but while traveling too, though you'll obviously have to deal with AT&T's roaming rates as well.

Windows Marketplace for Mobile lands on 6.0 and 6.1 smartphones

Back in July, Microsoft pleased a whole lot of legacy Windows Phone device users by promising that Windows Mobile 6.0 and 6.1 handsets would eventually have access to the new Marketplace for Mobile, the company's on-device download store.  The arrival of Windows Mobile 6.5 has come and gone - complete with the Marketplace - and now Microsoft have green-flagged the app store for 6.0 and 6.1 handsets.

HTC Touch HD 2 Shuns Windows Mobile and Embraces Android

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. No, we get to see more Android.

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. Or maybe angry at the world. Because that's the only realistic way the Omnia II could have acquired a price like this.

Sprint Announces HTC Touch Pro 2 for September 8 Due Date

Sprint Announces HTC Touch Pro 2 for September 8 Due Date

And it's going to cost a pretty penny. While the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 is already available for the same price, there were a few people out there who were hoping that HTC's Touch Pro 2 would see at least somewhat of a price drop, once it reached the Now Network. Either way, we're sure someone out there is still clamoring for this thing, and thankfully September 8 seems to be the day of days, so to speak.

Sunno S880 packs both Android and WinMo, borrows Idou style

Sunno S880 packs both Android and WinMo, borrows Idou style

We're accommodating, understanding sorts here at SlashGear, and so we'll let slide the fact that Sunno's S880 looks in no minor way like Sony Ericsson's Idou smartphone.  Instead we'll concentrate on the fact that the Chinese company is claiming that the S880 will dual-boot between Android and Windows Mobile, each OS sharing the handset's capacious 3.6-inch WVGA display.

Touch HD gets HTC Leo TouchFLO 2.6 and WM6.5 [Video]

While it may be getting on for a year old now, we've still got a soft-spot for HTC's Touch HD, so it's nice to see the homebrew ROM community endevoring to bring the latest software to the smartphone.  XDA Developers forum member Miri has put together a combination ROM of Windows Mobile 6.5 and the new TouchFLO 3D 2.6 build fresh from pre-production HTC Leo handsets, and you can see it demonstrated after the cut.
