Sony Ericsson Satio Fixed

You may have read in the last few weeks that some retailers had halted all Sony Ericsson Satio sales due to a software problem.

Well, the word on the street is that the problems has been resolved and devices will be on the shelves again tomorrow. This has been confirmed by Carphonewarehouse.

Clearly it may take a while for all retailers to get sorted out as there will be operator specific versions of the firmware that will need tweaking also.

It looks like Sony Ericsson have pulled this one out of the bag just in time for the Christmas rush. It very nearly went a bit pear shaped for them!

Google Android 2.1 Rom with Hidden Secrets?

We all know that HTC kick-started the Android generation way back on the 23rd of September 2008 with the release of the HTC Dream (latterly known as the T-Mobile G1) but did you know that deep within the murky depths of the 2.1 Rom for Android lay the codenames for existing and upcoming HTC Handsets? Probably not I guess is the answer.

It looks like HTC are planning a barrage of Android handsets that are already known to us and a number that are completely new for the 2.1 (Flan) Rom.

The known handsets are:

  • HTC Dream = T-Mobile G1
  • HTC Hero = Hero
  • HTC HeroC = Sprint CDMA Hero
  • HTC DesireC = Verizon Droid Eris
  • HTC Sapphire = Magic or T-Mobile myTouch 3G
  • HTC Memphis which was supposed to go to AT&T but never passed the starting line

Some of the “Brand New” codenames are:

  • Bahamas
  • Bravo
  • Dragon 
  • Espresso
  • Halo
  • HeroCT
  • Huangshan
  • Incredible
  • Legend
  • Liberty 
  • Paradise
  • PassionC
  • Passion
  • Sapphire
  • Supersonic

From what we are lead to believe “Dragon” & “PassionC” are rumoured to be HTC’s 2nd generation handsets set for the Verizon or Sprint network in the holiday period but the part that really sticks out for me is the mention of the non C (CDMA) version of passion which would suggest (based on the past) that there will be a GSM version of this handset.

I’ve always been one for rumours and very few (if any) that I have ever posted here have turned out not to come true so, with names like Supersonic, Incredible & Legend sitting in there and the fact that I’m a self confessed Android Geek I personally cannot wait to see what HTC have lined up.
