PHOTOVIEW: Palm Pixi Plus GSM/UMTS webOS Smartphone
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.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:23 CET under 08 - Reviews

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.

PHOTOVIEW: HTC Desire Android 2.1 Smartphone
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:48 CET under 08 - Reviews

Twins, separated at birth, the HTC Desire is the sister smartphone to the Google Nexus One. And while both devices are running Android 2.1/Eclair and sporting a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU, there are some smaller differences. For instance the Desire supports the EMEA- and APAC-compatible quadband GSM/GPRS/EDE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA bands at 900/2100 MHz. 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.

PHOTOVIEW: HTC Legend Android 2.1 Smartphone
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:40 CET under 08 - Reviews

HTC's brand new Android smartphone, the HTC Legend, is a real masterpiece of design. With its sleek unibody design, which is carved from a single block of aluminum, the device is extremely light and strong. And the brilliant AMOLED HVGA display is as bright and crisp as a LED display can be today. And while the 3.2" touchscreen is quite narrowed, in terms of the display resolution (the Legend only features a HVGA screen resolution at 320 x 480 pixel), the Legend is one of the handier smartphones in the market, measuring 112 x 56.3 x 11.5 mm only. Anything else is quite standard and state-of-the art: the 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash and the 3.5 mm stereo headset jack on the top of the device.
