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.

Back in February during the Mobile World Congress, HTC announced the HTC Legend, the company's latest Android smartphone which is the legitimate follower of the HTC Hero.

Furthermore, the Legend is one of HTC's first smartphones which comes with a brilliant AMOLED HVGA display. The Android 2.1/Eclair-powered smartphone features a 600 MHz Qualcomm CPU and supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/2100 MHz.

VIDEOVIEW: Facebook for Zune HD Hands-on
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:39 CET under 08 - Reviews

Following yesterday's faulty launch of Microsoft's Facebook client for the Zune HD, Microsoft and Facebook now fixed the issues remotely without releasing a new app. Facebook for Zune HD supports similar features like Microsoft's Facebook for Windows phone. And while it's also possible to cemment and like updates, it's not possible to upload photos or videos to Facebook. However, the user interface gives a good impression how a Facebook integration might look on Microsoft's upcoming Windows Phone 7 devices since the Zune HD and Windows Phone 7 feature a similar GUI concept.

VIDEOVIEW: Huawei E5830 HSPA Wireless Modem Unboxing and Hands-on
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:05 CET under 08 - Reviews

Back in January, during the CES, Huawei publically showed its E5 wireless modem the first time and during last week's Mobile World Congress, Huawei showed it again as the "Huawei E5830 Wireless Modem". The Huawei E5 is the center of personal connection and the ideal mobile broadband solution for everybody wanting high-speed UMTS/HSPA wireless connectivity, anytime and anywhere. Like Novatel's MiFi, the Huawei E5 acts as a portable WiFi b/g hotspot on one side but unlike Novatel's MiFi, the E5 only supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as singleband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 2100 MHz on the other side, which - nevertheless - makes it quite sufficient for Europeans today.
