Last month, the Blackberry Storm 3 was rumoured to feature the highest resolution display on a BlackBerry to-date, boasting a 3.7 inch 800 x 480 WVGA capacitive touchscreen, 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor, and a five megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video. Of course, none of these have yet been confirmed to be definite but its enough to get RIM fans excited.

The Munkey is truly one of those one of a kind gadgets which when you see it you’d say ‘why didn’t I think of that?’, this is exactly what I said to myself when this was sent to us. In this quick review we’ll tell you what we thought of the new mobile phone stand, as always lots of pics and of course is it worth your money?

The Munkey which is proudly made in the US was designed mainly for those who enjoy watching movies and videos on their mobile device and especially for those of you who do this while on the go. Supported mobiles include the iPhone, iPod Touch, Droid, HTC Hero, BlackBerry Storm and Zune HD. If you have a device that is similar in size to these, then its most likely that it will fit the Munkey.

Here are some spy shots of what looks like the BlackBerry Storm 2 which we were told earlier on would arrive the UK as well as other countries in Europe by late this year. From the pictures, it doesn’t look like any radical chances have been made from the current Storm. But sources do suggest that the Storm 2 codenamed “Oden” boasts WiFi and GPS, which is exactly what we want to hear!

We only told you about the possibility of seeing a next generation BlackBerry Storm, the Storm 2 earlier in the week and now it seems that rumor has been confirmed to be true. RIM’s Alain Segond von Banchet, Channel Sales Manager in the Netherlands has confirmed the release of the Storm 2. It will be due later in the year, for Europe: late ‘09 or early 2010! What the sales manager wasn’t being so honest about was whether the Storm 2 will be upgraded with WiFi, despite this, it seems very obvious that this hardware update will be inevitable if RIM wants to continue to compete with its rivals using the Storm 2. Hopefully we’ll see more info of the successor of the first BlackBerry full touchscreen mobile soon.

vzw-blackberry-storm-leftThere was a rumor about the possbility of launching a next gen BlackBerry Storm 2 with WiFi on Verizon Wireless some time ago, but this was thought by most as a joke at first. However, sources have now confirmed that the rumor was in fact true. The BlackBerry Storm 2 will launch on Verizon with WiFi, obviously for far more greater connectivity and faster web browsing. I personally believe WiFi has been the single most importantly let down for the Storm, otherwise it would have been a far greater device with much more popularity. Sources also confirm that the next Storm, Storm 2 has a new screen technology, which aims to make typing easier. It is believed that the Storm 2 will be launching around September time, which makes you think – BlackBerry has reduced the cycle time of its first full touchscreen device to less than a year, they must be in a hurry!

As some of you will probably have learnt Palm just got back in the game! Seriously. For those of you who have missed this news or skipped the news regarding Palm from our CES 2009 roundup, this you don’t want to miss. The latest Palm Pre is a svelte new smartphone that runs Palm’s all-new, touch based webOS mobile platform. The Pre boasts a 3.1-inch touch screen with a gesture area below, a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 8GB of internal storage, on board is WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and a 3-megapixel camera with LED flash. The Pre, initially will be available only from Sprint. The Palm phone will be sold alongside the Touchstone, an inductive charging dock that lets you charge up wirelessly just by laying the Pre on top of it, which leaves me absolutely speechless. It’s quite clear that Palm is up for a challenge, is it comparable to iPhone or RIM BlackBerry Storm or Google Android G1 or even Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, I think definitely and no doubt we will be hearing about Palm Pre for the rest of this year.

Though I would say that both phone manufacturers tend to produce phones with styles that target different users. Nevertheless this quick hands on video shows you some of the ups and downs of the two newest touch screen phones to hit the market, if that’s what you are looking for by any chance!
