UNVEILED: HTC Puccini Android Tablet shows its front and back
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:13 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

The Boy Genius Report has received information that HTC has a new 10" Android tablet in work. According to BGR's information, the HTC Puccini (codename) will feature a 8 megapixel main camera as well as a front facing camera, stereo speakers and a microphone. Furthermore, it seems that the Puccini will also support HTC's digitizer pen input like it's smaller 7" brother, the HTC Flyer. Earlier reports suggested that the Puccini will be powered by 1.5 GHz CPU (while it's unknown if this will be again a single-core or this time a dual-core chipset). However, the obvious lack of hardware keys seems to confirm that the Puccini will be released with Android 3.x aka Honeycomb.

SNEAK-PEAK: Microsoft shows Windows Phone Mango Twitter and LinkedIn integration on Video
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:40 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Since last week, it's somewhat official that Microsoft employees are trialing a near-final Windows Phone Mango build which now features the long awaited Twitter integration. And Microsoft is kind enough to share a video with us showing how the Twitter - and LinkedIn - integration works. As expected, Twitter (and LinkedIn) will be part of the Peoples hub and showing the new stream in a similar way as Windows Live and Facebook updates were shown so far. However, Microsoft also realized that that a unified news stream with Windows Live, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn updates can become pretty noisy and therefore added the option in Mango to select which news streams should be displayed.

BRANDING: Nokia announces renaming of Ovi Maps to Nokia Maps
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:19 CET under 01 - General News

Back in May, Nokia announced that it will start in July/August to rebrand its first Ovi services as Nokia services which basically means that each of the services under the Ovi umbrella will simply be rebranded as Nokia - with no planned disruption to the service roadmaps. Today, Nokia Germany announced that its Ovi Maps is now known as Nokia Maps. The transition from Ovi to Nokia began in July this year, with the intention of it being completed across all countries and all services by the end of 2012. It's likely that anybody buying a new Nokia smartphone or mobile phone later this year will start to see the new branding on services included within.

Not that the Huawei MediaPad is something totally new and unknown, Huawei is even advertizing it on the::unwired already, it's nevertheless yet not available and still brand new. Huawei and Google jointly announced it last month as the first Android 3.2/Honeycomb tablet and today I had my first five minutes with Huawei's first high-end Android tablet.

DEMO: Nokia Sea Ray Windows Phone shows its Face on Video (again) - this time for real
Posted by Arne Hess - at 09:15 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Look at this, it seems someone took a Nokia Sea Ray, you remember - Nokia's first and most likely upcoming Microsoft Windows Phone, out of the Chinese production-line to give it a first, not Nokia-authorized hands-on video which shows the smartphone from all angles. But not only the hardware got a first hands-on but also the Mango UI and the camera. Furthermore it seems to be confirmed now, that Nokia's Sea Ray will use similar touch-sensitive navigation buttons like HTC's Windows Phones have. WPCentral even got the info, that the Sea Ray in question is running a RTM (Release To Manufacturer) version of Mango which would mean that Microsoft and Nokia are pretty much ready for prime-time.

UPGRADE: Vodafone Germany announces Android 2.3 Nexus One Update for today
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:16 CET under 04 - Android News

German Vodafone Nexus One users here? You might have lost your faith already but sometimes it takes "a little bit longer". While Google started to rolled-out its Android 2.3/Gingerbread update to its U.S. Nexus One back in February, Vodafone Germany has just announced that it will also roll-out the FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) update from today! That's only 5 months later than Google in the U.S. - which is not bad at all; especially because many Nexus One buyers purchased it to get their hands on updated Android version as early as possible.

LAWSUIT: ITC Judges releases initial determination in Apple vs. HTC Case
Posted by Arne Hess - at 15:35 CET under 01 - General News

It's quite common these days - unfortunately - that one company sues another company for intellectual property misuse. And therefore, instead of fighting in the market by trying to attract customers with attractive products, companies sues each other with patent infringements. The latest episode is Apple's vs. HTC's patent case where HTC last week received notice of the ITC (International Trade Center) judge's initial determination in the Apple vs. HTC case, ITC No. 337-TA-710. Apple originally asserted 10 of its patents against HTC in March 2010, and the judge ruled that HTC seems to indeed infringed on 2 patents.

ENHANCED: Google releases Android 3.2/Honeycomb Platform and Updated SDK Tools
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:39 CET under 04 - Android News

Last weekend, Google's Android team officially introduced the long awaited Android 3.2/Honeycomb update. And while it is announced and sounds like an incremental update only, it's somewhat important since it adds several new capabilities for users, device manufacturers and developers. Most importantly, Android 3.2 adds optimization and support for a wider range of tablets and includes a variety of refinements across the system to ensure a great user experience on a wider range of tablet devices. This means also that Honeycomb finally supports 7" tablets like the HTC Flyer or the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

INTEGRATION: Microsoft tests Windows Phone 7.1 Mango Twitter support
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:13 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

It's somewhat obvious that Microsoft's upcoming Windows Phone 7.1 release will natively support Twitter in the People Hub, like it was supporting Facebook right from the launch. And similar to Facebook's new chat integration, it's expected that Twitter will be connected through Windows Live. This makes even more sense since it seems that Microsoft has turned-on Twitter for Windows Phone Mango for some selected staff and the first tweets from random employees hit the web the other days. Neither the regular Mango developer release nor Windows Live is supporting Twitter as of today but the tweets in question have the following information: "via Windows Phone (via Windows Live)"

Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:49 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

At yesterday's Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference keynote, Microsoft showed the first results of its new Windows Phone 7 partners. While it's not new that Microsoft got Acer, Fujitsu and ZTE on-board, this was already announced back in May, we haven't seen Mango-powered Windows Phones from the so far. However, yesterday Microsoft gave a first sneak-peak or Acer's, Fujitsu's and ZTE's work and while the Acer and ZTE phones looked pretty much like a Windows Phone, the Fujitsu device was mentioned to be waterproof. However, the biggest surprise was an upcoming Windows Phone from Samsung - who is one of the initial Windows Phone 7 launch partners.

ENHANCED: HP announces GSM/UMTS enabled HP TouchPad 4G
Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:21 CET under 05 - Other Mobile OS News

I mentioned it earlier this week in HP TouchPad review, that a HP TouchPad GSM/UMTS version is expected to be launched anytime later this year but HP went even further yesterday evening and confirmed that the - so called - HP TouchPad 4G is coming to AT&T. But that's not all because the TouchPad 4G will also have a faster 1.5 GHz processor, but the same 32 GB of storage and integrated GPS as the WiFi only version. Also the other features and specs seem to be unchanged, meaning the HP TouchPad 4G will run the same webOS 3.0 version as the WiFi counterpart and featuring HP's latest and greatest Touch to Share and Touchstone technology.

Somewhat sad and envious that HTC has several times confirmed that it's starting to bring Android 2.3/Gingerbread to the HTC Desire but you have a Desire Z? Well, don't be green-eyed any longer because HTC DACH (Germany/Austria/Switzerland) has surprisingly confirmed on its Facebook page that it will give the same Gingerbread love to Desire Z owners! According to the Facebook posting, HTC is in the final phase of testing and if everything goes well, the FOTA-update (Firmware Over The Air) roll-out is planned for the upcoming weeks.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:30 CET under 08 - Reviews

The HP TouchPad is HP's first webOS-based tablet which runs the very new webOS 3.0 version. Quite typical for today's tablets, the TouchPad is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU at 1.2 GHz and is/will be available in two different flavors: W-LAN only and GSM/UMTS. Furthermore, each version is/will be available with 16 GB and 32 GB inbuilt memory.

PROGRESS: HTC promises first unlocked Android Bootloader for August - Sensation (4G) and EVO 3D first
Posted by Arne Hess - at 09:14 CET under 04 - Android News

Back in May, HTC CEO Peter Chou confirmed on the never ending Android bootloader topic, that "we (HTC) will no longer be locking the bootloaders on our devices. Thanks for your passion, support and patience". However, so far all new Android smartphones like the HTC Sensation and HTC EVO 3D still came with locked bootloaders. Nevertheless, today HTC posted an update on its Facebook page where it wanted to provide an update on HTC's progress with bringing bootloader unlocking to their newest phones: "We know how excited some of you are for this capability, and we've put significant resources behind making this change as soon as possible".

UPGRADE: HTC announces HTC Desire Gingerbread update for late July
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:47 CET under 04 - Android News

As HTC announced on Facebook yesterday evening, the wait is - almost - over and HTC Desire customers will finally get its long awaited and previously canceled Android 2.3/Gingerbread upgrade: "Hi everyone. We have more news about our build of Gingerbread for Desire. Our testing has gone well so we will begin rolling out the update by the end of July! Thank you again for your support!". Initially HTC said it had (memory) problems to bring Android 2.3 and HTC Sense to the Desire but decided later to simply remove some of the Sense goodies to make room for Gingerbread. According to HTC, the HTC Desire Gingerbread update is in internal tests since late June and therefore a late July release sounds reasonable.

OFFLINE: Google Maps 5.7 for Android introduces "Download Map Area" Beta
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:03 CET under 04 - Android News

One way Google brings new product features is through Google Labs - a collection of fun, experimental features. And now, Google introduced another experimental feature which sounds pretty handy: "Download Map Area". Google Maps for mobile is a great tool for visiting an unfamiliar area but it has one major problem - it requires a data connection which could be either not available or better not used - especially if in international roaming. So far there was a workaround because Google Maps Mobile for Android was already able to cache maps. However, with the new Labs features, downloading a map area became even easier by automatically downloading maps for a 10-mile radius!

HACK: Free Mango for all? Workaround provides Windows Phone 7.1 upgrade for everybody
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:45 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

It was somewhat clear that sooner or later some developers will find a way to bring the recently launched Windows Phone 7.1 Mango upgrade to everybody; which was supposed to be available for registered and approved Microsoft Windows Phone developers only - who paid US$ 99 to get some early Beta love. But heck, I haven't expected that it comes that fast. As windows phone hacker reported yesterday, a workaround was made available which allows to flash Mango to any Windows Phone 7 device, doesn't matter if developer or just user. As expected, Microsoft's way to distribute Mango to developer devices is redirecting registered devices to a special update server, instead of using the public one for regular updates.

First of all, it comes with a new design and looks more colorful now. However, finally it also shows Foursquare specials around, allows to explore and even also allows to upload photos to check-ins now.

ANNIVERSARY: GSM turns somehow 20 today - Happy Birthday
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:58 CET under 01 - General News

Amazing, happy birthday GSM! Feels like yesterday since you've launched (and I joined in 1993). As Nokia has posted, on July 1, 1991, former Finnish Prime Minister Harri Holkeri made the world's first public GSM call, using Nokia equipment (for sure). However, what Nokia forgot to mention is, that the GSM standard was significantly developed by German Siemens and French Alcatel because the standard goes back to a very early initiative of Germany and France. Anyway, Nokia jumped the bandwagon pretty early as well and was one of the key developers of GSM technology as we know it today.
