“The display is 3.2 inches wide, has a resolution of 640х360 pixels, supports up to 16 million colors and is covered with glass (that is how they refer to the special plastic layer also used in the X6 and C7). The display type is AMOLED, and my guess is that it is made by Samsung, just like it is with the N8. Unlike the Nokia C7 and N8, the screen sports a polarized filter that should improve its readability in direct sunlight. It has become known as ClearBlack Display (CBD).”Read more here:

“Shortly after we posted yesterday’s news item on the unlocked Pre 2’s availability in the UK comes its appearance on the European Palm webstore for several other countries such as Germany, France, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Russia. Nit-picky German Palm fans should note that the German Pre 2 is offered only in the QWERTY keyboard format, not the usual German QWERTZ format.
Another interesting tidbit as noted by PreCentral is that this occasion marks the first time any WebOS-powered device has been sold in Italy, Russia, or or the Netherlands, likely thanks in no small part to HP’s deep pockets and extensive global presence.
The Pre 2 available for all of these European countries rings in at the same 499.00 Euro price tag as the UK version. With the greater part of Western Europe now Pre2-ified, at least in unlocked form, let’s hope that a comparable AT&T band-compatible version makes its way across the pond in a timely fashion. ” via palminfocenter.com

“If you pardon my language, the Windows Mobile based HTC HD2 was the latest uber-flagship from the Taiwanese company. It is the type of devices that has the highest price in a particular segment. The HTC HD2 was exactly like that at its launch and remains one of its kind in the WM cohort to date. However, even before the release of the HD2, while still in the WM business, the company became interested in Android. And that was the end of the flagship era. The first device, more of a test unit, was the HTC Magic, followed by the HTC Hero, average in terms of functionality but the first truly popular “robot.” Even today, the latter is considered to be a quality standard for Android smartphones by many users. And that is well-justified – i.e. it has a relatively small size, fairly good screen, decent battery life and performance. Whichever way you look at it, it is average yet handy. After that, there was the Nexus One for the search giant Google and its analogue under the HTC brand (the Nexus One does have the manufacturer logo, though) – the Desire. It is the Desire that became the company’s flagship “robot” immediately after its launch, although no experienced Android or Windows Mobile user would call the Desire a truly top-notch device.” Read more here:
