QUICKVIEW: HTC Wildfire Android Smartphone Photoview and Videoview Hands-on [UPDATE]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 15:20 CET under 08 - Reviews

Today, during several press events in Germany, HTC officially unveiled its next Android 2.1 smartphone - the HTC Wildfire. Looking quite similar to the HTC Desire, the HTC Wildfire is adressing a different target group. It's designed with the social network users in mind and address a young and "always connected" generation of Internet users. Unlike the HTC Desire, which might be the best an Android smartphone can get today, the HTC Wildfire comes with slightly narrowed specs. While GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as UMTS/HSDPA are supported, the Wildfire lacks support for HSUPA. And the touchscreen, which is capacitive this time, only features a QVGA (320 x240) screen resolution.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:28 CET under 08 - Reviews

To be launched end of April in Germany and France, the GSM/UMTS Palm Pixi Plus is the latest addition to Palm's portfolio of webOS smartphones. Running webOS 1.4, the Palm Pixi Plus features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dualband UMTS/HSDPA at 900/2100 MHz. The faster upload technology HSUPA isn't supported. Nevertheless and unlike the original Palm Pixi, the Palm Pixi Plus also features WiFi in addition to Bluetooth 2.0 and the Pixi-typical 2.6", 320 x 400 pixel capacitive touchscreen. The camera has also not received an upgrade and only supports 2 megapixel; at least it comes with a supporting flash LED. Like all webOS devices, the Pixi Plus features a QWERTY keyboard, which is a little bit smaller than the Palm Pre keyboard and less colorful.

The Xperia X10 is Sony Ericsson's first Android smartphone, the company announced late last year. Running Android 1.6/Donut, the Xperia X10 is powered by a Snapdragon CPU at 1 GHz and the device supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA. Furthermore, the X10 features WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, aGPS, a digital compass and several sensors. The massive 4" touchscreen supports WVGA at 480 x 854 pixel and since Sony Ericsson is well known for its camera phones, it's not a surprise at all that the Xperia X10 is the first available Android smartphone which comes with a 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED photo light.

And while both smartphones support WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with flash LED, the 3.5 mm stereo headset jack and a micro USB port, the HTC Desire features HTC's Sense UI on top of Android while the Google Nexus One comes with a vanilla version of Android 2.1.
