How many of you regularly face the problem of mobiles freezing up in between and tablets not responding. All that you can do in such situations is reboot your gadget but during this process you do tend to lose some important data which is truly very frustrating. Qualcomm has announced its fastest Snapdragon dual-core chip which, it says, will be available by the end of this year. Snapdragon has been custom made to boost speeds in smartphones and tablets.
Its official, Palm’s second WebOS smartphone the Pixi will be arriving exclusively to Sprint on November the 15th. The new Pixi is slated to hit Sprint stores, Best Buy, RadioShack and selected Walmart locations next month for $99.99. However, its not that simple, $99.99 is after a $50 instant rebate and a $100 “mail-in rebate” that you’ll probably need to wait abit for. For those in the UK, the Pixi’s arrival date is still yet to be confirmed, considering the Pre has just arrived us not long, it may be awhile!
To recap, the Palm Pixi is a non-slider 3G handset, with a 2.63-inch, 320×400 resolution touchscreen, Qualcomm’s MSM7627 chipset, Microsoft Exchange push email, built-in GPS, a 2-megapixel camera with flash, accelerometer, media player, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, 8GB memory, microUSB connector and a 3.5mm stereo jack.
Here’s a video demonstrating the brand new TouchFLO 3D ROM installed and running on the soon to arrive HTC Leo (Touch HD2?).
Not only is the new HTC Leo going to be a highly prestigious phone coinciding with the launch of Windows Mobile 6.5, we can also expect it to include that superfast 1GHz Qualcomm 8250B Snapdragon processor, and a rather monstrous, bulky 4.3-inch screen capable of delivering up to 800 x 480 resolution (looks massive especially when compared to that of Diamond Touch2 below).

Palm has officially made the Pixi their new Web OS phone. The Pixi as most will imagine would be a step higher and more advanced than the Pre but in fact, it isn’t and some may even regard it as the simplified version of the Palm Pre more suited for those not really into multimedia functions.
If you had the Pre, take out its wifi, remove 80 pixels of vertical resolution, downgrade its camera to two megapixels, add support for Yahoo! and LinkedIn syncing, a preinstalled Facebook application, and what you get is the new Pixi.
The first Android phone with flash support has been unveiled. A true iPhone killer this time? Known as the HTC Hero, it is a phone which has been speculated with images leaked previously, now officially revealed and pictured below.
The new open source Android based HTC Hero sports a 3.2-inch HVGA (480×320) screen, a five megapixel camera with autofocus, AGPS, digital compass, gravity sensor, 3.5mm headphone jack and a dedicated search button. On the inside lies 512MB of storage, expandable by microSD, 288MB of RAM, and a 528MHz Qualcomm processor.

Details on pricing and availability of the HTC Magic will of course vary according to local Vodafone markets, but pricing in Spain will be from 99 to 199 Euros, depending on contract.
