“One of the major laptop manufacturers, Acer, entered the cell phone market with quite a canny move – taking over a company that already has enough experience in the field, namely Eten.The manufacturer introduced the Tempo lineup back at MWC 2009 that currently comprises a total of four Windows Mobile smartphones. Three of them utilize a new interface, called Acer Shell, made by the company itself. In this review we are about to take a closer look at the Acer M900. It’s a high-end, business oriented device that sports QWERTY keyboard, 5-megapixel camera, 3.8-inch display and a function that’s quite rare to see on cell phones – fingerprint reader protection. The sensor itself is clearly visible below the display, right between the button that starts the GPS and the key that gets you back to the home screen. Well, its look somewhat spoils the modern design of the phone, but is otherwise handy and you won’t have a problem using it even while holding the Acer M900 in one hand. We will tell you more about it later in this review, now let/s get down to the other elements of the design.” Read more here:
“There never seems a shortage of heroes in this industry but every now and then a new breed emerges to change the rules of engagement. Ranks and titles are hard earned and we’ve seen enough contenders that barely deserve a hero’s death. Now, here comes a gadget that knows the best shot at glory is the high-definition one. Will the Samsung Omnia HD be strong enough to bear its name with honor or will it crumble under the weight of expectations?
As all-in-one multimedia touchscreens are battling for dominance, the HD category is now making its way to cellphones. HD is a magical marketing word that has seen as many abuses as it has had just uses. In the Omnia HD case, it’s an insignia of its truly superior rank. It’s not the first time a handset has claimed this tempting acronym, but the Omnia HD hits it where it matters – video recording and playback.
Samsung were the first to announce and release an HD-video-enabled handset. In the not so short time since then, none of their major rivals managed to introduce a competitor. So, all heads are anxiously turned to Samsung to see if they can deliver.” Read more here:
If you’ve been using your BlackBerry in the last 24 hours or so, you’ve probably noticed that red star plastered on the App World icon, signaling it’s time for an upgrade. Yes, RIM’s version of the app store has hit version 1.1, and the bulk of the update concerns better navigation options — new categories, top downloads for free and premium apps, and the ability to sort search results by name, release date, rating, price, and developer. Outside of that, we’ve also got the option to now archive apps on SD card or other memory, but unfortunately there’s no option to run those programs without reinstalling to internal memory. The update is available for all countries, including the recently-introduced group of ten. Full details after the break. This mobile client update includes:
- View the catalog by free vs. paid top downloads
- Additional categories and sub-categories
Customers can sort their search results by:
