HTC Vision/Desire Z/G2 spotted


Somebody has sent engadget some rather interesting photos. Yes, it is the forthcoming HTC slider. Known as the T-Mobile G2 in the USA but believed to the the Desire Z here in the UK, this 3.7 inch Android device is what we think we will be introduced to us on September 15th here in London. Known initially as the HTC Vision you can clearly see its glorious 4 row sliding keyboard. I sense this new Android device is going to a huge seller in what is already a massively gowning market.

Looks pretty sweet doesn’t it?

BlackBerry 6 on BlackBerry 9700 – Video


BGR have just released a much welcomed video of BlackBerry 6 running on the Bold 9700. As you will see the new OS seems to run beautifully and BRG even says that some features are running better here on the 9700 than they are on the Torch 9800!

I can only presume that a release of the new OS is imminent and I blooming well hope so as I am gagging to get it on my BlackBerry.

Come on RIM. Give it to us!

The Android 3+ buzz is Honeycomb?

honeycomb Rumours are rife that Google’s post-Gingerbread Android form will go by the name of Honeycomb with Tech Radar claiming conformation from "multiple sources", and so far Google has not issued a stinging rebuke.  While it’s not clear if this will be any more than an incremental update as opposed to the generational leaps of Eclair and Gingerbread, it certainly will be an excuse for a whole swarm of bee-related puns.  I, for one, couldn’t bee happier.

Windows Phone 7’s Xbox Connection – Over 60 games at launch

xblwp7 While many industry pundits are not expecting Windows Phone 7 to achieve the success of iOS, Android or indeed its Windows Mobile forebear, Microsoft still boasts one thing only one other phone manufacturer can boast – a console division.  It seem while Sony’s gaming tie in with any phones is still in the rumour stages, Gates’ guys have unleashed the full weight of the Xbox name to push WP7 into the public consciousness.  Over 60 games have been announced, some from the excellent Xbox Live library including Castlevania, De Blob and Hexic and others from full retail titles such as Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell and Halo.  While the quality of the games is still unknown, their pedigree can’t be faulted and could prove to be the trump card MS can hold over Apple and Google with the general public.

See the games here on the dedicated Microsoft site, and watch some of them in action here.
