Hotfix for the HTC Touch HD

image Well we don’t know if this is good or bad, yet another hotfix for the HTC Touch HD after last weeks double fix. A positive look and we say well done HTC for getting these out fast and frequently, on a negative, why has this device got so many problems. Anyway this hotfix addresses a problem when you use the Camera function to take a picture in a dim environment with super fine quality, sometimes the image will display extraneous (noise) pixels in the viewfinder mode. It’s not a mechanical (LCD) fault but only an intermittent display problem in view finder mode. It does not have any impact on the picture quality or other display functions. If you encounter this problem, please download this hot fix to enhance the virtual viewfinder mode. More details and download link after the break.

Kogan Agora delayed indefinitely

image Remember that great looking Android phone with the front facing QWERTY keyboard we told you about a while ago and caught a glimpse of on video at CES. Well it has now been delayed indefinitely citing concerns over compatibility with future Android apps. This is such a shame as we know that this would have been a popular device with the specs and form factor running Android. Ah well never mind, I am sure some new Android devices will be just round the corner.

Change, a phone we can believe in

kenya-obama-phoneNext week the entire world will welcome a new American president. Barack Obama is  wildly popular around the world, but nowhere is more excited than Kenya, the birthplace of the President-elect’s father. How is Kenya celebrating the inauguration? With an Obama branded cell phone, obviously. Mi-fone, a maker of low end mobiles for Africa and South Asia has created a budget handset for the Kenyan market in order to cash in on that country’s love of the future president. If someone were to create a phone to cash in on a politician, I don’t think there is a better choice these Days Than Obama. The phone features dual band GSM, a built in FM radio, an LED light, and a 4.5 hour talk time. The phone should be available now for around $30.
