Nokia 5800 leakes again, UI is still unrefined

Posted by SG on Thursday, July 31, 2008

The Nokia 5800 has leaked again, but this time it’s showing it’s UI also. For those who forgot the 5800 is Nokia’s answer to the 3G iPhone. It’s a Touch Screen Based Smartphone running on S60 5th Edition having a 3.2 inch screen with a resolution of 640 x 360. It also has a 3.5 mm jack, Wi-Fi, GPS & a 3.2mp Auto Focus Cam with Carl Zeiss Optics.

The positioning of the phone as an iPhone beater can be seen from it’s branding as a Xpress Music Phone. It might also come with Nokia’s Comes with Music Service, which allows unlimited music downloads for 1 year. The Tube also has a newly developed battery called the BL-5J and it will also support the TV-out which the iPhone currently does not. If Nokia markets & positions this correctly, they might have a best seller in their hands but they need to refine the UI of the phone as it will get easily beaten by the iPhone’s UI.

Wall Street Journal confirms Blackberry 9500 Thunder to launch in Q3 2008

Posted by SG on Sunday, May 18, 2008

The iPhone rival handset from Research in Motion (RIM), the BlackBerry 9500 Thunder is reportedly going to be launched in Q3 2008 according to the Wall Street Journal. Verizon will get the exclusive launch rights for the U.S., while the rest of the world will at least initially be able to grab the gorgeous device through one of many Vodafone’s subsidiaries.

Release date is set for Q3 2008, so I guess it will probably be somewhere around September. Roughly at that time, Sony Ericsson will release XPERIA, 3G iPhone may also be announced, and suddenly buying a mobile phone goes from complex to ultra-complex decision with the 3G iPhone & HTC Touch Diamond also vying for attention.

iPhone no longer available in the UK; 3G version coming soon?

Posted by SG on Friday, May 9, 2008

Engadget is reporting that the iPhone is not available in the UK. The 2G Version was being pushed with a discount by O2 in the UK. They were also not replenishing the stock. Now they’ve run out of it.

iPhone, at least in its 2G version, is official dead in the UK. And even though we knew this is coming, O2 UK obviously wanted to make things clear, hence their iPhone page has a simple “iPhone no longer available” sentence. This in return prompts a question when will the 3G iPhone be released, and who will get the honor to carry it. Hopefully, we’ll know sooner rather than later. June seems like a month to look forward to…
