White Motorola Q

It’s been a few months since we first spoke about the Motorola Q but we just came across this picture of the Q in different clothes.

Motorola Q in White

It’s not clear whether or not this is an offical device or if this is the result of a quick encounter with a tim of spray paint but it definitely looks a lot nicer in white!

See the rest of the photos HERE.

Astraware® and PopCap Games® would like to wish you a very happy Valentine’s Day. To celebrate a special edition of the best-selling handheld game ever, Bejeweled®, is once again available for a limited time from the Astraware website.

Bejewled Valentines Edition

Bejeweled Valentine’s Day Edition features all the gem-swapping fun of the original, but with some loved-up extra features. The game board is enhanced with sparkly red heart-shaped jewels and the game includes a ‘Valentines’ Special’ option to help shy romantics get the message across to their Bejeweled-addicted sweetheart. The ‘Valentines’ Special’ has two preset questions, or the user can create a personal message in their own unique way.

This year the game has been updated to add compatibility for some new devices, so Windows Mobile® users with 240×240 square screen devices can display their inner-romantic. We’re also excited to announce the first ever release of Bejeweled Valentine’s Day Edition for Windows Mobile® for Smartphone devices, including those with landscape screens.

Bejeweled Valentine’s Day Edition is available for only a couple of weeks, so don’t miss it! Owners of a registered copy of Bejeweled (original version) can download the Valentine’s Day Edition for free, and registration codes for the Valentine’s Day Edition will also work for the classic version of Bejeweled®.

HTC Athena photo review

The folks over at Moblog have got their hands on an HTC Athena already and have reviewed it in pictures.

HTC Athena

“The best way to describe HTC Athena I feel, have to be the term “Mobile PC Communicator.” You see, unlike laptops or computers, you do not need to wait for the device to (cold) boot up. You don’t have worries like battery going to end within 2 to 3 hours time (Lap top battery time usage). You no longer have the excuses like; the device is too heavy to be carried around. Same time, Athena does not behave like the rest of the Pocket PC Mobile devices. Just look at the specifications stated below, none of the any mobile devices have all the specifications offerings available on the market to date. “

Updated HTC Athena specifications:

  • Intel Bulverde PXA270 624 Mhz chipset
  • 128 MB RAM / 128 MB ROM
  • Inbuilt GPS Receiver
  • Quad band GSM Network
  • 8 GB microdrive with G senor
  • 3G UTMS / HSDPA 1.8 Mbps / GPRS / WiFi 802.11 b/g Connection
  • 5” Samsung VGA Screen / 262 K color TFT LCD
  • Auto focus 3 mega pixels Digital camera
  • USB 2.0
  • A2DP Bluetooth 2.0
  • AVRCP Bluetooth
  • HTC VGA / Composite Video / S-Video Output
  • Min. 30 FPS Video decoding output
  • Detachable QWERTY Keyboard input
  • Motion control web browser
  • Sub display User interface keyboard magnet attached to LCD
  • SRS 3D sound effect
  • Dual Digital Camera
  • 5-way navigation mouse like-button
  • ATI imageon 2282 Graphics accelerator
  • 2100mAh Battery
  • Each time I see this device it looks more and more impressive!

    TomTom infected with Trojans

    TomTom admits that a number of its devices are infected with viruses. The viruses were shipped with the TomTom GO 910 model but do not affect the operation of the device, according to the manufacturers.

    However upon connecting the device to a PC, anti-virus software on the computer immediately flags up two alerts identifying win32.Perlovga.A trojan and TR/Drop.Small.qp as being resident on the device.

    The two viruses are found on brand new devices right out of the box!
