HTC HD3 is HD7 and is a beast of a WP7 device

htc-hd3-windows-phone-7-0 Android may have the software but if the rumours of the forthcoming HD3 are to be believed, it could really be the HD7 that James alluded to last week.  With stunning specs to make a netbook blush, it may have the first dual-core CPU in a phone (1.5 MHz ARM) and a staggering 1280×800 4.5" AMOLED screen.  There’s also a rumoured 8 megapixel camera, 1gb of internal memory and up to 32gb of ‘external’ memory.  All this will be the engine for Redmond’s newest and brightest – Windows Phone 7.  Many are saying that WP7 has a possibly insurmountable mountain to climb but armed with hardware like this and integrated features like Xbox Live, only a fool would place all the chips on MS’s failure.  Is this the beginning of the dreadnought-like uberphones?

Motorola FlipOut Review

Flipout-main

The concept of the Motorola FlipOut is most definitely an odd one. We have had sliding Qwerty handsets for years now and this one just kind of warps the traditional style a wee bit. 

As you would have seen in Matt’s demo video the FlipOut highlighted some screen issues but does this make it a bad phone?

Carphone Warehouse launches 14 day coverage guarantee

CPW

Carphone Warehouse has launched a 14 day coverage guarantee – the first policy of its kind to offer exchanges or refunds on new products where network coverage is inadequate.

The new coverage guarantee will allow store managers to refund any new product where consumers report coverage difficulties at home or at work rather than relying on computerised coverage maps to sanction refund policies.

 

Matt Stringer, MD of Carphone Warehouse, said: ‘Some customers have reported that they can be put off switching network operator because they are worried about bad reception in their home or office. With the Coverage Guarantee we’re leading the way in giving consumers the confidence to choose the network deal best for them, secure in the knowledge they can change if necessary.’

Nice work CPW!

iOS 4.1 Jailbreak Ready

Cydia Logo

It is not even out yet, but the good people over at the iPhone Dev Team have managed to Jailbreak iOS 4.1. ?Comex, the creator of the Spirit and jailbreakme.com jailbreaks is saying that he has already located 2 exploits in iOS 4.1. The first one is similar to the jailbreakme.com jailbreak as it uses a loophole in iOS itself, which makes it simple for the user to impliment, whereas the second one is in the bootrom of the iPhone at the hardware level. Which makes the second jailbreak will be much harder to impliment than the first, but as the second one is deep down within the iPhone, it will be much harder for Apple to lock it down.

Look for it to be available the same day that iOS 4.1 is, which is rumoured to be September 8th.
