iPhone 2.1 Could be a Nano

iphone-nano-21

A real hardware change may come this year for the Apple iPhone. PinchMedia was the first one to have seen the new iPhone and since then there have been some very intriguing evidence of its existence, though no one can say for sure if it’s an iPhone Nano or not an iPhone Nano and we don’t know.

Windows Mobile soon to be Windows Phone?

image According to an article in Digitimes, Microsoft, which is planning to unveil its Windows Mobile 6.5 platform at the Mobile World Congress week after next, has decided that, going forward, Windows Mobile-based handsets will be promoted simply as Windows phones without specifying an OS version number, according to market sources in Taiwan. Sales of Windows Mobile-based handsets totalled about 20 million units in 2008, accounting for 13% of the global handset sales, said the sources. The reasoning behind this decision, if true, can only be to avoid dating a handsets OS and cloud the waters for consumers so they don’t really know for sure if the device has the latest software, will get the latest software or whatever else to cause confusion. If as we believe Windows Mobile 6.5 will be announced next week but won’t be available until September, this will again cause consumers to hold back on future purchases as experience of the 6.1 upgrade fiasco of last year where some devices have just got the update and others are still waiting is all too fresh in the mind.

Samsung Memoir Launching on T-Mobile USA

Samsung and T-Mobile are set to introduce a touch-screen phone equipped with an 8-megapixel camera into the US market. Called the Memoir, the phone is apparently a US version of the Pixon handset announced for Europe and Asia last year and will sport a Xenon flash, 16x digital zoom, in-built GPS and a virtual full-QWERTY keypad.

Samsung Mobile And T-Mobile USA Introduce Best-in-Class 8-Megapixel Camera Phone

Samsung Memoir™ Captures and Shares High-Quality Images With Advanced Features and Touch Screen

DALLAS & BELLEVUE, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) and T-Mobile USA, Inc., today announced the upcoming availability of the Samsung Memoir™, a full touch-screen mobile phone equipped with an 8-megapixel camera and premium multimedia features, placing it among the highest quality imaging phones available in the U.S.

The Memoir, available exclusively from T-Mobile, is designed to look and feel like a customer’s current point-and-shoot digital camera. The built-in 8-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, 16x digital zoom and five shooting modes empower customers to capture exceptional photos and videos from their phone — whether they’re on the go, on a vacation or just hanging out around the house.

The touch-screen phone, enabled by Samsung’s TouchWiz™ user interface and powered by T-Mobile’s high-speed 3G network, makes sharing photos easy. Samsung’s new photo widget allows customers to post images taken with the Memoir directly to their favourite online photo sharing source, such as flickr®, Kodak® Gallery, Photobucket and Snapfish.

“With the 8-megapixel Samsung Memoir, T-Mobile customers can capture and share little slices of life in all their vibrant brilliance,” said Denny Marie Post, chief marketing officer, T-Mobile USA. “With the ability to share photos at your fingertips, the Memoir helps make those connections more meaningful by their immediacy.”

The Memoir’s full-touch virtual QWERTY keypad and multiple messaging capabilities, including text, multimedia messaging, instant messaging and e-mail, make staying connected quick and easy while on the go. The Memoir is complete with a music and video player and built-in Assisted GPS navigation, which allows customers to utilize location-based services including turn-by-turn directions. For hands-free use, the Memoir features stereo Bluetooth® technology, speakerphone and voice-activated dialling.

“This is the camera phone that will make people want to leave their digital camera at home,” said Bill Ogle, Chief Marketing Officer for Samsung Mobile. “When you combine the Memoir’s imaging capabilities, customisable menus and music player, not only is it a great phone, but the entertainment possibilities are unlimited.”

T-Mobile’s 3G coverage available in select markets. Samsung Memoir also works on T-Mobile’s 2G network. See coverage maps at T-Mobile.com

Model number: SGH-t929

If you think it looks more like a camera than a phone, you’re right, and it was designed that way according to the Samsung release:

"The Memoir, available exclusively from T-Mobile, is designed to look and feel like a customer’s current point-and-shoot digital camera. The built-in 8-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, 16x digital zoom and five shooting modes empower customers to capture exceptional photos and videos from their phone."

As a phone, the Memoir will feature text, multimedia messaging, instant messaging and e-mail along with a music and video player and assisted GPS navigation. There’s also stereo Bluetooth, speakerphone and voice-activated dialling functionality for hands-free operation.

If the specs match those released for the Pixon, video will be shot 30 fps (720 x 480) and slow motion playback may also be on the cards.

The Memoir (model number SGH-T929) will be available exclusively from T-Mobile and run on the company’s high-speed 3G network (though it will also work on 2G). No official pricing or release dates have surfaced at this stage.
