Looks like Toshiba also wants to be apart of the touchscreen phone gang. Completely out of the blue? Well, no. It appears Toshiba has been working on it and to reveal their latest TG01 ahead of the upcoming Mobile World Congress also seems like a plan so that everyone will have had it stuck in their heads and thinking about it even before seeing all the new tech other brands will have to offer at the world congress.
Hey folks, I know from your comments sent in to us that you’re all quite excited about the new and upcoming latest Palm Pre. Just this morning we learnt that there were two rather unnoticed features of the Palm Pre just recently discovered, now we’ve got here yet another hands on video for you via TreoCentral. What I like the most about the Palm Pre is its so simple to use and also just look at that stunning HVGA touchscreen display, you’ll see what I mean in the video below.
We’ve just learnt through MobileCrunch about two minor features of the Palm Pre which turns out not many realised. As you will see in the video below, the Palm Pre has a slide to unlock feature very similar to that of the iPhone, it is optimised for one-handed, ambidextrous unlocking. All that is needed is a simple drag motion of the unlock object out of the circle and the Palm Pre will wake up. It’s also got a camera shutter that can be triggered by pressing on the spacebar which is also quite neat.
Treocentral poster Vyruz Reaper claims to have been given insider info on the launch date for the Palm Pre. His highly speculated source apparently passed on to him / her that the Palm Pre would launch as early as February 15. Check out his discussion post over at TreoCentral and see what you think.
Here’s another video for today, we’ve already featured some info on the Palm Pre but we have yet to show a proper demo of it in action so here it is folks. Probably the best function I like about the Palm Pre is that it can multitask and keep multiple applications open at the same time.
