” One of our staff at DinarSoft was visiting GITEX in Dubai where he found about this new O2 device.They call it XDA flame, and we think the name says it all :)The above readsThe first dual processor PDA-phone, the XDA Flame incorporates the powerful NVIDIA(R) GoForce(R) GPU for unrivalled screen graphics, movie playback, photo viewing, and gaming performance.A large 3.6″ VGA touch screen and an Intel Xscal PXA processor running at 520 Mhz ensure that you stay productive and entertained while on the go.- Intel Xscale(R) PXA 270 processor at 520 Mhz.- 2.0 Mega Pixel camera- NVIDIA(R) GoForce(R) 5500 GPU-Wireless LAN 802.11b+g- SRS Mobile HD surround sound- USB On-The-Go- 2 GB Flash ROM + 64 MB RAM- TV out connectorExtra inofrmation- Windows Mobile 5 (so far)- Bluetooth- Micro SD expansion slot- 3G – Tri band phone- Second camera for video chatting- Built-in flash for the main camera- The battery power is not final yet (the demo one had 1600 mA)- Built-in FM tuner- Business card reader (through camera)- Infrared (does any one still use this?)” More photos of this new GREAT smartphone here:
“It’s not often when “This is a first” can be said with a straight face in the DAP world. But the upcoming 4GB Turbolinux Wizpy really is a first. It’s certainly not the 1.7-inch OLED display, FM radio, or DivX support that makes the device unique. And we barely blink an eye these days when another new player can play MP3, Ogg, WMA, and AAC formats. Yawn! The stand-out feature of the Wizpy comes in the form of what’s preloaded on 1.5GB of the player’s internal flash memory . . . (wait for it) . . . Linux. Turbolinux FUJI, to be exact. And what good is bootable Linux without a sampling of what are arguably the best applications around? Yep, in addition to the plug-and-play OS, the Wizpy also comes preinstalled with Firefox, Thunderbird, and Skype. All this in a 3.3″ x 1.7″ x 0.5″ device that weighs a mere 2.1 ounces. The Turbolinux Wizpy will sell for about $250 when it hits Japan in February. ” via anythingbutipod.com

“Cingular is branching out a bit, launching its wireless navigation system TeleNav GPS Navigator on the Nokia E62 smartphone.Among the user-friendly elements of the TeleNAV GPS Navigator are full-color 3D moving maps and turn-by-turn directions. The maps are amenable to panning and zooming. The system also includes what the company calls “fuzzy search,” which fills in addresses for users based on nearby locations and even fixes spelling mistakes.The TeleNAV GPS Navigator system is available for just US $6 a month, for up to 10 trips. Any more than that and you’ll pay extra.The system is also available on other smartphones, including Cingular’s own 8125 and 8525 and the Palm Treo 650.” via mobilemag.com
