Google and Orange to release Googlephone?

There are currently several rumours circulating about a possible deal between Orange and Google, the result of which would be a Googlephone.

It is widely accepted that the Google-branded device may well come pre-loaded with mobile versions of Google apps like Google Earth, Gmail, etc. It is believed that the phone itself would be manufactured by HTC, which seems logical and would suggest that it would be some kind of Windows Mobile based device.

Other sources tell us that the talks are at a much more advanced stage and that plans are afoot to release a HTC Trinity or HTC Artemis based device as a Google-branded phone in partnership with Orange.

More news as we get it.

HTC P4350 (aka HTC Herald) review

Paul over at MoDaCo has just published his review of the HTC P4350 (aka HTC Herald).

HTC P4350 open

Everyone seems to be talking about the Herald and many seem to be excited about the idea of a thinner device with a keyboard or an updated version of the K-Jam. However, Paul seems to be rather disapointed with the P4350.

“Think of the Herald in one of two ways. It’s either a slimmed down and slightly tweaked Wizard, or it’s a Prophet (i-mate JAMin, SPV M600) with a slide out keyboard without gaining any additional size.”

“The first point worthy of note is the weight! At a hefty 174g on our scales (14g more than the quoted weight), it’s substantial. Small it may be, but light it ain’t By comparison, the Prophet tips the scales at 148g, the Wizard a closer 169g. It’s the heavy weight compared with the diminuitive size that is so strange… one can only assume the solid keyboard mechanism is to blame.”

Check out Paul’s full review HERE.
