Microsoft reveals October event is indeed for WP7, and we’ll be there!


Just as we and no doubt all of you expected, the event we are attending in central London on the 11th is indeed going to be the launch of Windows Phone 7. It will coincide with another event over the pond where Steve Ballmer himself will unveil the first crop of retail devices. Our lucky man James has already had a toy with the new operating system, and he’s also going to be at the event on Monday tweeting live. Over in NYC they’re expecting some hands on with the new phones, and I hope we’ll get the same treatment here!

So what can we expect? Starting with the HD7, it looks to be a monster of a phone with a 4.3 inch display, 8GB storage, 1GHz processor and maybe ‘Dolby Mobile Sound’! The second device circulating the interwebs is the HTC Mozart – this is perhaps more mainstream with a 3.7 inch display, an 8MP camera and more or less every extra you can think of, all wrapped in a 11.9mm thick body. Just as important as the devices is the fact that it looks as if all five main UK operators will carry a WP7 device of some sort, with a Phones4U leak suggesting a release of late October!

So with the dates so close, have you started saving the pennies for a Windows Phone?

HTC Desire is also now available in brilliant white for the first time, providing a stunning new look for the phone which has become popular for the richness and quality of its visual and multimedia experience.

Samsung i5801 Galaxy Apollo Review


To be honest with you I was not very excited about the prospect of doing the Samsung Apollo review. Within five minutes of playing with it though I was pleasantly surprised. I thought that a cheap Android phone that as far as I am aware is exclusive to Orange may have been given an Orange overlay and spoilt. Although Orange have added some of their own customisation to the Apollo you don’t have to use it which is a god send.

Read on to see what I mean and to get my views on this Android 2.1 device which costs under £150.00.

More HD7 Specs Leaked and Caught On Camera

HD7 vs Galaxy S

We had a little break from HD7 leaks, but now they are coming back. As Engadget has received the tip from someone at O2 Germany which fully lifts the lid of the specs of the upcoming HD7 from HTC. Alongside being one of the first phones to be running Windows Phone 7 and having a 4.3″ screen, the tipster confirms a 1GHz processor, 8GB of storage, a 5 megapixel camera with a duel-LED flash, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and a kickstand. Interestingly, one of the leaked documents says “Dolby Mobile Sound,” which if true, will be awesome!

The German O2 guy is also saying that the HD7 will launch in Germany in just two weeks for €559 (about £490). See below for the video and more pictures.
