HTC Logo

HTC today unveiled a new colour and finish for two of its most popular Android-based smartphones, HTC Legend and Desire.

The uniquely-designed and iconic HTC Legend will be available with a phantom black finish. The style and form factor for which the HTC Legend has become known remains the same, with its smooth, continuous surface, machined from a single aluminum block creating a seamless compact frame.

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.

Drums for iOS – Video


It’s Sunday so we thought we would bring you something a little light hearted and fun.

Drums for the iOS is a rather neat drumming application which is a little different to all the others in the iTunes store. AT 59 pence for both iPhone and iPad it wont break the bank but will give you hours of fun.

So what makes Drums unique compared to all the other drum apps out their?

You will have to watch the video for that, and no taking the mickey out of my virtual drumming skills please!

BlackBerry Torch 9800 Best Bits – Video


With the BlackBerry Torch 9800 now available in the UK I thought I would do another quick video showing you a few of what I think will be the most popular applications and features on the device.

I have been using the Torch for about three weeks now so hopefully my Torch skills are a little better than on my original video when I was at the BlackBerry Torch launch event.

Sadly my review device went back to RIM yesterday but I havn’t got long to wait for my own one. Clove are expecting delivery this week so my one should be with me soon.

If you are considering getting the Torch please feel free to use the Forum to ask any questions.

An important message for Orange and T-Mobile users


You may remember a while back we mentioned the integrated services from Everything Everywhere, the parent company that now owns both Orange and T-mobile.

Orange have released a short video on YouTube which explains nicely how the first stage of the shared networks will operate.

Read on to see the video.

Samsung Galaxy Tab arriving November 1st

Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy Tab is arguably the first tablet out of the Android camp really worth talking about, and it’s not long now till we can play with it too. Samsung have named November 1st as the date when the Froyo-laden Galaxy Tab will be hitting UK shores, and the second bite of good news is that it will be available from “all major carriers”. Hopefully that will help to curb the extravagant prices we’ve seen thrown around before, and the Carphone Warehouse and Dixons Store Group will also receive stock. How much will you have to give up to get a Tab of Galaxy in your hands? That’s the only question Samsung have left to answer, but hopefully we can expect some sort of carrier subsidising.

How much will you have to shell out for a Galaxy Tab? We’ll have to wait and see.

Another Windows Phone 7 demo video


As promised, below is the second Windows Phone 7 video I recorded this week. This time a Microsoft dude (AKA Oded Ran) talked me through a few features on the new operating system.

Microsoft really do have some nice features on this new OS and in particular I love the people hub and how it integrates with your Facebook contacts. They have given some serious thought into giving us consumers what we want and making life easier for us by using a mobile device.

Enjoy the video and I hope that next time we get our hands on a WP7 phone it is to review it.
