Possible release date of Palm Pre in the UK

pre_t3_w300

My contract is up and I’m looking ahead at the emerging phones. As I have announced many a time, I rather enthusiastic about the Palm Pre. It’s a long wait until the vague “in time for Christmas” launch date on 02. Having a little search I noticed this post on T3 that I had obviously missed. A rumoured date of October 30th? Here’s hoping.

Remember the official UK Palm Pre announcement? O2 went all cryptic on us, confirming it had the exclusive rights to the sought-after smartphone for the UK, but only offering ‘will be here in time to sit under Christmas trees all over the land’ as a launch date. Which left us with any date up to 24th December. Well, if rumours are to be believed (and we think they are), that shelf date will actually be October 30th. Which is a Friday, should you want fancy booking off a long weekend to play with your new toy.

Microsoft launches OneApp for feature phones in emerging markets

Microsoft-OneApp

Today Microsoft announced the launch of a new application and service called OneApp. OneApp consists of a small application and a set of Microsoft "cloud services" that enable a feature phone to access web services like Twitter, Facebook, and Windows Live Messenger without needing the processing power of a smartphone. Microsoft’s servers handle the heavy lifting and send only the required bits of data to the user’s phone. This has the effect of reducing data use as well as speeding up the overall user experience.

Some details from Nokia:

Powered by the efficient Intel Atom processor, the Nokia Booklet 3G delivers impressive performance with up to 12 hours of battery life, enabling people to leave their power cable behind and still be connected and productive. Delivering the rich experience of a full-function PC inside an ultra-portable aluminium chassis, the new mini-laptop weighs 1.25 kilograms, measures slightly more than two centimetres thin, and has the features one would expect from the world’s leading mobile device manufacturer.  A broad range of connectivity options – including 3G/ HSPA and Wi-Fi – gives consumers high speed access to the Internet, including Nokia’s broad suite of Ovi services, and allows them to make the most of every moment and every opportunity.

"A growing number of people want the computing power of a PC with the full benefits of mobility," said Kai Oistamo, Nokia’s Executive Vice President for Devices. "We are in the business of connecting people and the Nokia Booklet 3G is a natural evolution for us. Nokia has a long and rich heritage in mobility and with the outstanding battery life, premium design and all day, always on connectivity, we will create something quite compelling. In doing so we will make the personal computer more social, more helpful and more personal."

The mini-laptop also comes with an HDMI port for HD video out, a front facing camera for video calling, integrated Bluetooth and an easily accessible SD card reader. Other premium features include the 10-inch glass HD ready display and integrated A-GPS which, working with the Ovi Maps gadget, can pinpoint your position in seconds and open up access for a truly personal maps experience. The Nokia Booklet 3G also brings a number of other rich Ovi experiences to life, whether its access and playback of millions of tracks through the Nokia Music Store, or using Ovi Suite to sync seamlessly from your Nokia smartphone, to your mini-laptop, to the cloud.

The Nokia Booklet 3G will widen the Nokia portfolio, satisfying a need in the operator channel, and bringing another important ingredient in the move towards becoming a mobile solutions company.
