HTC to launch 6 new handsets this quarter

htc-logo-300x188 Fantastic news if you are a fan of HTC’s phones as much as I am as earlier this week HTC’s CEO, Peter Chou, stated that the company will be launching between 6 and 8 new smartphones in this quarter.

That’s a whole lot of phones for any company to launch in one period so I cant wait to see what they have up their sleeves. We expect it will include a number of the rumoured handsets that we’ve seen over the past few months including the HTC Vigor, with it’s 1.5GHz dual core CPU and 720p display, and HTC Bliss, rumoured ‘ladies phone’, most likely.

We’re also hoping to see a few new handsets running Windows Phone Mango, there haven’t been any new Windows Phone devices launched for a while.

Reports also say that HTC will be steering clear of the lower end of the handset market concentrating instead on mid to high-end premium devices, something that HTC excels at. They don’t seem to be so good with the lower-end devices as even with limited spec the cost always seems too high.

We’ll come back with updates as we get them! I’m looking forward to a few more HTC launch events over the coming months! 🙂

The new BlackBerry Smartphones – Which to choose?

Screen Shot 2011-08-06 at 15.33.30

Unless you have not looked at the internet in the last week or so you will be aware that Research in Motion are launching Three new BlackBerry Smartphones here in the UK in the very near future. All three are running the new version of the Operating System, BlackBerry 7 but the question is which one do you decide to buy.

To make things a little easier I just thought I would post what we know about the new devices in one place. That way comparing them and seeing which one will suit you best will hopefully be made a little easier. Of course, you do not have to rush your decision. We don’t have any confirmed dates for release yet although it is pretty certain to say that the Bold 9900 will be first. Dates are being left up to the carriers here in the UK so I would imagine that some networks will launch before others.

You can see the key features and photos of all three new handsets below:
