VIDEOVIEW: Huawei E5 HSPA Wireless Modem Unboxing and Hands-on
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:56 CET under 08 - Reviews

Back in January, during the CES, Huawei publically showed its E5 wireless modem the first time and right after the recent Mobile World Congress, I had the first time the chance to videoview the Huawei E5830 Wireless Modem. Now, Huawei has updated the E5 and brought it, together with O2 to Germany. Like the E5830, the Huawei E5 works as a portable WiFi b/g hotspot, supporting quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA 7.2 Mbps/HSUPA 5.76 Mbps at 900/2100 MHz. However, the additional supports for 3G at 900 MHz isn't the only difference - the new Huawei E5 also features an OLED display which replaces the original LED indicators which makes the use way more convenient.

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.

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.

PHOTOVIEW: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Android Smartphone
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.
