Heat mobile phone from Helio

“This is a first look at the much expected Helio Heat phone, which was initially supposed to have been a larger more robust type of device, yet now we see that this phone is neat and elegant with a touch of style and class.This phone is sleek, shiny and slim, it comes it just two colors, black or gold and both are sumptuous in depth of color and glossy feel. As well as the normal standard buttons, there are dedicated music controls. There is a bit of disappointing news, the fact with all this gloss and expensive looking styling they only put a 1.3 mega pixel camera in the device, whereas most phones are equipped with cameras around the 2.0 mega pixel range.Of course the main reason for having a Helio phone is not just the style factor, but what you get with it, and as expected the Helio Heat offers access to GPS enabled services such as Buddy Beacon – a friend finding service exclusive to Helio, Google Maps, My Space Mobile, Helio Music – for music downloads, and the usual video on demand.Features include;Innovative interface, touch control with electrostatic touch pad.3G for fast downloading and messaging.GPS, advanced satellite technology for directional and social eventing.Bluetooth, for connectivity to wireless accessories.Memory is only 136 MB, but this is a phone.Camera, 1.3 mega pixel with flash, video and built in photo studio.Entertainment, media player, music and video on demand.Speaker Phone.Calculator.Address Book, 1,000 contacts – 5,000 numbers.Alarm Clock.Calendar.Picture Caller ID.Technical Specifications.Talk Time, up to three hours.Standby, up to eight hours.Dimensions, 3.6” H x 1.8” W x 0.6” D.Weight, 3.17 ounces.Band, CDMA 1xEV-DO 800/1900 Mhz.” via mobilewhack.com

Review of GSM/UMTS smartphone Nokia E65

“This slider belongs to “slim-is-in” category, being one of the company’s smallest slider-styled offerings, measuring up at 105x49x15.5 mm. While Nokia’s range doesn’t feature any counterparts to this solution, Samsung is delivering such device in March – Samsung i520v (S60 3.1, 101.7×50.5×17.9 mm). Overall these devices share some commonality – to make sure of that you just need to put them side by side. The Nokia-branded solutions look much more flashy, thanks to the display edging and patterned surface, good combination of silver and grey colors (the other color scheme is a typical pick for women – red).” Read more here:

Trolltech Qtopia Greenphone and SDK Review

“Shortly after the Qtopia Greenphone was announced, I was given the opportunity to run one through the paces and see what kind of things this cool little smartphone could do. One of the first questions that arose in my mind was, “Is there a need for another Linux mobile platform?” After thinking about it for a while, it started to make sense. If you take a visit over to LinuxDevices.com and search the archives, you will find countless phones and PDAs – like the Sharp Zaurus which I reviewed back in 2003. There is definitely a market for these devices, but can the Greenphone find its place in such a world? The Greenphone comes at a time when there are countless mobile Linux platforms, but not many of them are open for easy development. This little device aims to fill a niche for a community-oriented mobile development platform. How does it perform? Well, let’s take a look.” Read this review here:
