HTC Vox (S710)

Confirmed to be running Windows Mobile Smartphone this will be the first ‘candybar’ smartphone device to have a sliding Qwerty keyboard. However you’ll notice that, like the P4350, this is another device from HTC where the keyboard opens the ‘wrong’ way.

It looks like a nice compromise and I expect that this is likely to be popular!

    SanDisk add FM radio to Sansa e200 series

    Following on from the successful launch earlier this year, SanDisk announce that the Sansa is now shipping in Europe with the option of an FM tuner.

    Sansa Front

    Here is an excerpt from the press release:

    SanDisk® Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK) today announced that the award winning Sansa™ e200 and c200 MP3 player series would both be offered with FM functionality to consumers in European Community member countries starting in December.

    Launched earlier this year, the European models in both the Sansa e200 and c200 series did not contain an FM Tuner due to increased costs caused by tax requirements. However, following significant demand from the consumer, SanDisk has taken the decision to offer both FM enabled and FM disabled devices to the consumer with a marginal price differentiation.

    Both the flagship Sansa e200 series and the corresponding Sansa c200 series with added FM functionality will be available in stores. The feature-packed players all include a flash memory card expansion slot, allowing users to add up to 500 additional songs through a 2GB 1 microSD™ card; extensive battery life with removable and rechargeable batteries 2 ; photo-viewing; voice recording with built-in microphone, and non-proprietary digital rights management (DRM) to allow users to purchase songs from numerous digital music sources.

    In addition, the e200 series offers a rugged, scratch resistant alloy metal back casing for added durability, as well as photo and video capability facilitated through the Sansa Media Converter for the optimum user viewing experience.

    The FM enabled device will ship beginning in December.

    Skype now for Windows Mobile Smartphone

    Yesterday saw a new Beta Version (v2.2) of Skype launched.

    Skype

    Smartphone users will be pleased to learn that this version supports Windows Mobile Smartphone and that some 120 new devices are now supported.

    Skype For Smartphone

    There are a few limitations with this version, for example, at the moment, Skype calls only come through the loudspeaker or a headset. Skype say that they are working on this, but in the meantime, you’ll need to use a headset for the best audio quality.

    So far it seems to work perfectly well on my TyTN but it’s early days!

    Check out the Skype download page HERE.
