Motorola Xoom (sim free) is now ready for pre-order in the UK via Carphone Warehouse. Moto-fans among us will know that this tablet has been much anticipated, the materials used (aluminum casing) by Motorola give it a brilliant solid touch.
If you’re an Android fan hoping to cash in on the new Google Nexus S in time for this Christmas, this is what you’ve been dreading to hear. While the latest news may not have a massive impact as the delay will still mean the new Google Android flagship will arrive by the holidays, this does mean fans will need to wait abit longer to get their hands on the new Android 2.3 Gingerbread device.
We’ve just received some news tip from one of our readers that they’ve spotted the LG GD900 Crystal on the Carphone’s coming soon section. The Carphone who are usually very accurate with their dates have slated the LG GD900 Crystal to arrive in mid-May this year. You may remember that it was first thought the GD900 actually had a crystal made transparent keypad, this has been proven to be glass. Nevertheless we look forward to trying it out as this will be the first ever to be seen on a mobile and as we’ve featured before in some videos, this keypad sports some interesting features.
It was a great opportunity for us to be able to take part in the launch of the LG Arena KM900 blogger event last night in London. We know from some of your messages that there’s been quite alot of interest in the phone since it was first announced during the Mobile World Congress (MWC), we’re happy to tell you all that the Arena will officially be available by the end of this weekend.
We were told at the event by LG Sales and Marketing Director, John Barton that the Arena will be arriving the UK mobile networks, Orange and T-Mobile, not surprisingly Phones4u and the Carphone Warhouse will also be involved in retailing.
I’m sure you’ll be aware that we’ve been talking lots about the upcoming Nokia smartphone, N96. Here’s just a quick headsup to say that it’s been spotted (I mean the arriving date) on both UK mobile giants’ sites Phones4U and the Carphone Warehouse that the N96 will be arriving in about two weeks time in the beginning of October.
While the Carphone Warehouse have already placed the N96 into it’s already launched section, it remains under the coming soon heading on the Phones4U site. Nevertheless, both firms are now already accepting pre-orders!
Here’s just a quick sum up of the N96 to remind you of why we are so excited!
The Nokia N96 mobile phone takes the impressive N95 and makes it even smarter. It has the same clever two-way sliding mechanism as its predecessor, giving you the choice of a conventional keypad or music controls, but there are quite a few changes inside.
The 5 megapixel camera is now linked with the built-in GPS mapping, letting you ‘geotag’ your pictures with location data. You’re able to capture video clips in DVD-like quality at 30 frames per second – and there’s compatibility with a wide range of video playback formats including MPEG-4, Windows Media Video and Flash Video. The Nokia N96 even has a stand on the back for handsfree viewing. Music is also well catered for, with a massive 16GB of expandable storage, 3D stereo speakers and a standard 3.5mm headphone socket. With WiFi and 3G HSDPA connectivity rounding off the package, this is a true multimedia computer.
If you’re interested, you might like to know that the UK networks which will be offering mobile deals for the Nokia N96 will be O2 and Orange.
