Asus Glaxy 7 reviewed

081218-glaxy7-01 It’s been several months now since we last caught sight of the 5-megapixel Asus Glaxy 7 phone, but it seems that Mobile Review were lucky enough to snag one for a quick review. So far, based on their impression on this Omnia look alike, it’s pretty well built and the Glide interface is almost on par with HTC’s TouchFlo3D.

IE 6 on 6 available now for the Touch HD

image MoDaCo have released a custom ROM for the HTC Touch HD and included in the ROM is the much anticipated IE 6 on 6. The ROM is a World Wide Edition in English and is based on the HTC 1.19 Asia ROM. You must download the whole ROM image and upgrade your phone with it, as this browser is not available as a separate download. Since it is not clear which manufacturers will release a ROM upgrade with this browser, it may well be that some phones will never ever get this browser officially. You can find all the details over at MoDaCo.

Nokia N85 unboxed

We recently started looking a a couple of Nokia handsets and have already reviewed the Nokia N96 and unboxed the Nokia N79. This time we are unboxing the new Nokia N85. The N85 is kinda similar to the N96, with a few exceptions, one being that the N85 doesn’t have the on-board memory that the N96 has.


The Nokia N85


Our reviewer, Dan, is trying out the N85 and N79 as we speak so the reviews will be online soon. For now here’s the unbox:


Nokia N85 unboxed


The Nokia N85 is pre-loaded with at least 10 made-for-mobile N-Gage gaming titles and a voucher to activate one full game license. Dedicated gaming keys light up when the device is in landscape gaming mode to further enhance the action-packed experience. 
A state-of-the-art 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and bright dual LED flash captures clear, sharp images as well as DVD-quality videos at 30 frames per second. Combined with A-GPS it is possible to geotag favorite pictures to see where each photo was taken using the Nokia Maps application or online sites such as Share on Ovi or Flickr.
Each Nokia N85 comes with an 8 GB microSD card, up to 30 hours of music playback time and its high-fidelity sound means favorite tracks can be enjoyed virtually anywhere. You can even enjoy RDS radio or a wide selection of stations via the internet. The 3.5 mm audio jack makes connecting a top-quality headset simple and an in-built FM transmitter lets the Nokia N85 play wirelessly through a car or home stereo to really crank up the sound.

Therefore the Nokia N85 is perfect for the mobile user, who wants top end fatures and functionality and complete connectivity when away from the office or home.
