Sprint 2010 range leaks: HTC WiMAX phone, Palm C40, BB Tour 2.

You'd think CES 2010 would sate even the most gluttonous of gadget-hounds, but apparently there's still room for a leak or two.  Sprint's 2010 device line-up has apparently been leaked, with phoneArena's tipster providing them with details of handsets ranging from an HTC WiMAX candybar (codenamed A9292) through the Palm C40 (a different device from the existing Pre and Pixi) and the BlackBerry Tour 2 9650 (the sequel to the current Tour).

Windows Phone getting Xbox LIVE integration tips Microsoft job ad

Microsoft have tipped their hand for upcoming integration between Xbox LIVE and Windows Mobile, after a job listing was spotted for a "principal program manager" responsible for "bringing Xbox LIVE enabled games to Windows Mobile".  While there are no specifics - and it seems unlikely, given the state of current smartphone performance, that we'll see Xbox 360 titles ported to Microsoft's smartphones any time soon - the initial push appears to be bringing avatars, IM chatting and profile browsing to mobile devices.

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.

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.
