MOTO QA30 leaked – Motorola’s first QWERTY slider

Motorola seem to be absolutely flooding the handset market these days but does this new phone show a change for Motorola?

motorola-qa30
Moto QA30

Why look what we have here: MOTO QA30, the very first Motorola slider that features a full QWERTY keyboard.

The QA30 has a pretty weird form factor, somehow resembling AT&T’s Samsung Propel. Unlike the Propel, however, which is a GSM phone, MOTO QA30 is a CDMA one that, according to the images found at Howard Forums, will be released by Alltel in the US.

Of course, we don’t know yet when this will happen. We do have, though, most of the specs and features that MOTO QA30 will come with.

Here they are:

1x-EVDO connectivity

2.5 inch TFT display with 320 x 240 pixels and 65K colours

Threaded messaging

Full HTML browser

Facebook access

Email, IM

3.5mm headset jack (nice!)

Stereo Bluetooth 2.0

USB 2.0

2MP camera

MicroSD / MicroSDHC card support, up to 32GB

There are no details on the price of MOTO QA30, but the handset shouldn’t cost too much. After all, it’s not even a smartphone, hence it doesn’t have Windows Mobile, like the latest official device from the Q series – Motorola Q 11.

With Motorola never being able to get the “I look good” factor into any of their phones, this one is no different. It might well be a first for MOTO but for us it’s just another ugly Motorola Mobile Phone.

Samsung U800 Soul Review

Introduction

When the nice guys over at Samsung sent us this this very nice pink handset to review and my initial reaction was "It’s Pink". I decided immediately that this phone would do my street cred no good at all and immediately handed it to my wife Lynne who was all too obliging to try it out for me. For each Samsung U800 Pink mobile phone that are sold, a minimum of £10.00 which be donated to Breakthrough Breast Cancer, which is a charity that is committed to the fight against breast cancer through research, campaigning and education of the people within the UK.

General

The Pink U800 Soul is no different as you would imagine to the the U800 Soul in any other colour although the main thing to notice is the fact that it’s a Samsung U range phone that is not a slide which could be considered a break from the norm.

The phone design is very nice and fits into the hand very snugly. At the top of the screen there is a rectangular curved edge earpiece grill and the front facing 3G camera. The Phone itself is not unlike a standard candybar phone in regards to button placement and design.

The left hand side of the phone has just 2 areas of interest starting at the top with the rocker volume switch and lower down with the MicroSD slot .

 U800_left
The Left Hand Side

Moving over to the right hand side we find the charging port which triples as a headphone socket and usb connection then a customisable button a little further down with a red line going through it.

The top of the handset has nothing interesting to see except for what can only be described as a fake grill pane

Looking to the back of the phone we find the 3MP Camera with the flash underneath and loudspeaker grill to the right. The back is made of a metal and has the Samsung name and camera specs etched / printed on it. At the bottom area it moves back to the standard handset finishing and the other end of the carry strap / pendant hole can be found.

Removing the back from the phone allows you access to the Li-Ion battery and simcard area.

– Placement of earphone / charging jack

– No 3.5mm Jack socket

Review

We had this phone for just over 2 weeks and in those 2 weeks it was used daily by Lynne. The simple menu system was the first of the things that made the daily usage a pleasurable experience. Wherever you expected to find something in the menu it was generally there which was a real plus for this phone.

Text messaging was the next thing that Lynne mentioned as being great, the size of the keys and the on screen text size made it very easy for frequent text messaging.

I think the biggest downside to this phone has to be the Samsung proprietary headset connector and Charger. Having these things on the side of a device which is used daily and sits in pockets can only signal one fate, breakage (we didn’t actually break anything… thankfully). The use of a miniUSB on the bottom of the device would have been a far better idea for both charging and headset usage than the standard that Samsung and many other manufacturers through out.

Not having WiFi on this phone really broke Lynne’s heart, it was the one thing that would have prevented her from buying one herself and given today’s fast paced lifestyle and mobile competition this feature should almost be considered as standard as the ability to connect via GPRS.

The battery life was really good and with normal usage it needed a charge after 3 to 4 days. The actual charging time itself was also very quick although we didn’t think to note the actual time.

The phone had a few surprises up it’s sleeve with the first being that despite the phone sitting in the budget market the sound quality on the speaker phone was very clear and not at all tinny which is very common these days. The next wee surprise was the sound quality of the radio / media player with the earphones in. It was loud and clear enough to ignore anyone sitting beside you and to enjoy music in peace which Lynne found useful when sitting next to me.

Conclusion

The Samsung U800 Soul is a wonderful low to mid market phone. Although not rich in many of today’s must have features it does not claim to be anything other than it actually is.

Without sounding remotely sexist this phone was designed with women in mind and it works 100% within the realms of what it is designed to.  

Samsung have really worked this phone very well and the idea of assisting a well deserved cause as well as having a mobile phone that is both very well designed and very pink should be enough of a USP to get this phone selling loads and out of the door.

Overall this phone great to use and as per my comments above it done exactly what it said on the tin which is a nice change in today’s markets.

Motorola MING (ing) A1600 Gold Edition emerges

A gold edition of the Motorola A1600 touchscreen phone has just appeared on the Chinese website of Motorola. Designed in the style of the Motorola V8 Luxury edition the A1600 trades the snake for crocodile skin but this doesn’t make it any less tacky.

Moto Ming
Motorola Ming A1600

This time Motorola somehow managed to convince the renowned French jeweller and watch maker Cartier to take part. However it seems that the design is mostly done by Motorola with Cartier only providing a business card holder included in the retail package.

We can’t quite get the idea behind all those gold editions that seem to be spawning recently. However we have to admit that among them all the A1600 is probably the most acceptably looking (we will by no means go as far as calling it attractive).

Moto Ming 2
Motorola Ming A1600 Open View

Other than the new shiny colours the Motorola A1600 Gold has no differences from the original model. It still flaunts the 2.4-inch 262K colour QVGA touchscreen display and the signature MING semi-transparent plastic active cover. The handset also runs on the same Linux based OS and has quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support (no 3G as you might have guessed).

The Motorola A1600 also packs a 3 megapixel shooter, a microSD card slot (up to 4GB), stereo Bluetooth (A2DP), a microUSB port, and a stereo FM radio. Its final noteworthy feature is the built-in GPS receiver which allows both real-time GPS navigation and geotagging of the photos taken with the built-in camera.

Motorola A1600 is already available for purchase, costing about 685 euro (865 US dollars).

Toshiba G450 Is a Modem, Phone, MP3 Player and USB Memory Stick

When I first saw news of this phone I thought, great another concept phone. Don’t get me wrong, I like concept phones but how many of then really turn out to come alive? Not a lot I’d say. The Toshiba G450 in this case was not a concept, it was real which was a big surprise to me.

Toshiba G450 Toshiba G450

I’m sure there are many phones out there with the capability to do all 4 functions listed on this device but how many of them have you seen in this form factor?

Obviously the G450 is bigger than your regular memory stick but then you come to expect that given that it has to cope with a screen and two rotary keypads. Functions SMS messages aren’t a problem either except when trying to get used to the keypad I’d imagine.

The downside is that the stick offers only 160MB of storage space so you won’t get that many songs on MP3 player but with the price tag at only £140 in the UK I say it’s worth it.
