BlackBerry VM-605 Bluetooth Visor Review

bb visor

This is the second Bluetooth car kit that Orange have kindly sent me to play with and review. Although this particular one is made by RIM and sold as a BlackBerry car kit you do not have to have a BlackBerry to use it. It will work with all Bluetooth enabled phones.

I recently also reviewed the Parrot MiniKit Slim so lets see how this BlackBerry one compares.

Read on to see the verdict.

More Android Froyo rumours


Word is that Froyo will be 450% faster than the current Android 2.1 system, and according to a source of TechCrunch who provided this screenshot, will also include native USB tethering as well as the ability to turn it into a mobile WiFi hotspot for sharing your mobile internet connection with other devices. Android 2.2 is also expected to come with full Flash support and will finally allow Android users to install apps on the memory card instead of just limiting them to the phone’s memory.

Motorola Motoroi to be upgraded in the UK


News has surfaced about the Motoroi release here in the UK. Pocket-lint has apparently gotten confirmation from Motorola that this particular Android handset is indeed coming to the UK, and will come with better features than the Motorola XT701 that was launched in Taipei. Similar to the Motoroi for Korea, the UK-bound model will sport an 8-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, 720p video recording capabilities, but ups the ante with a faster processor, and Android 2.1 as its OS possibly with MotoBLUR.

No specific date was mentioned, but it is expected to be released within the next couple of months. The question at the back of our mind is, due to its delayed release, is anybody still interested in the Motoroi?
