Nokia 5800 soon to have capacitive touch


Nokia plans to replace the resistive touch panel currently used in its 5800 handset with a capacitive touch panel in order to compete effectively with rival models from Apple, Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics, according to sources at Taiwan handset component suppliers.

NokiPhone N3000i Dual Slide: Clues to Future Nokia Touchscreen Smartphones


It’s an original NokiPhone! It features dual-slide design reminiscent of the N95 and a 3.2-inch touchscreen, also benefits from dual SIM cards and a face that is as much iPhone as other, more brazen iPhone clones. It’s actually both Nokia clone and iPhone clone, which makes perfect sense considering the features. Too bad, NokiPhone has not decided to include 3G or WiFi on the N3000i. Anyway, it does support videos and music files and games.

HTC Magic launching 5th May on Vodafone UK


We have been keeping an eye on this Android handset for some time and Vodafone have just started to accept pre-orders. The phone is due for launch on the 5th May and if you pre-order they are guaranteeing that you will get it first.

Looking at the pricing plans, if you want the phone for free, look to spend at least £30,.00 a month for a minimum of 18 months, the cheaper plans will cost you £ 293.00 for the phone as well as the contract so choose your plan carefully. This is only the second Android phone which to be honest surprises us that it has taken so long to come around, many are blaming the economic blah blah but maybe it is down to something else like an HTC exclusive agreement maybe, who knows, but 5th May is the day to stick in your diary if this floats your boat. More information from Vodafone.

HTC Touch Diamond2 unboxing

image Our HTC Touch Diamond2 has arrived and we have just done a quick unboxing video and a look around the device, nothing too in-depth at this stage but it should be worth a watch if your interested in this phone. First impressions are the screen is beautiful and the most sensitive of any Windows Mobile device to date, nice and responsive to use. The phone is small in the hand and no longer has the diamond shaped rear panel which is a big improvement. So far the device is really impressive. We will be using it and testing it over the next few days and if you have any questions at all, leave them in the comments or email us at [email protected]. Video after the break.

HTC Touch Diamond2 unboxing video

So the chances are that you will have seen my previous Diamond2 unboxing video where I unboxed a pre-release model and took you on a tour around the new version of TouchFlo 3D. Today, courtesy of our friends at Clove Technology, I’ve got my hands on the retail version of the Diamond2 so I thought I would record a brief unboxing video for you.

There’s no difference between the pre-release and the retail version in terms of hardware but there are some ROM changes which improves the overall speed and a couple of known bugs. Our review, which we hope to have completed next week, will be of the retail version of course.

So like I say, this is just a quick unbox so that you can see what’s included with the handset that you might buy. The previous video has more about the OS and TouchFlo 3D.
