Nokia’s Latest Smartphone Gives a Widescreen View

Finland’s mobile phone manufacturer has launched three new devices at its flagship European conference* where the future of mobility is top of the agenda. Nokia’s latest smartphone* the 7710* takes a widescreen approach to helping users be productive on the move.The device was launched at the mobile phone maker’s Mobility Conference in Monaco in Tuesday. Measuring 128mm by 69.5mm by 19mm* its 640 x 320 pixel touch-sensitive screen gives users a landscape view. Nokia claims this will allow a better Web browsing experience. The 7710 uses the Series 90 operating system. Pen input and handwriting recognition are both
supported* as is connectivity over Bluetooth* which the company clearly hopes will give it the edge in an already crowded market for smart phones.

“Boy* it’s smart…” joked Anssi Vanjoki* Nokia’s general manager for multimedia* at a press conference. Other features include a one-Megapixel camera with a 2x zoom* a push email program and various personal information management applications* as well as an FM radio and a multimedia player.“It’s about roductivity and media consumption at the same time*” Vanjoki said.Shipments of the Nokia 7710 in Asia are planned to begin in the fourth quarter of 2004 and in Europe in the first quarter of 2005.Nokia also launched two other phones. The 3230 is aimed at the youth market* and is a tri-band Series 60 device with a browser* MP3 player and radio.

The 6020* described by Vanjoki as a simple phone that “has everything we considered essential” runs on Nokia’s Series 40 platform* which has less functionality than Series 60 or Series 90. It provides a VGA camera* GPRS support and push-to-talk. Vanjoki claimed this mix of features* while clearly not ground-breaking* was likely to prove a commercial success.“Some people may not be very excited by this product* but I am — because I know it will sell a lot*” Vanjoki predicted. Shipments of the 3230 and the 6020 are expected to begin during the first quarter of 2005. A Nokia spokesperson was unable to confirm availability or pricing for the Australian market.

HTC Touch Diamond hands

The good folks at HTC left this little gem (pun totally intended) on our doorstep today, but as cool as it sounds to have one of the world's great Windows Mobile torchbearers just drop off its hottest new handset to us like
it's an extra large pepperoni and mushroom, it's a bittersweet gift at best. Why? The Touch Diamond lacks both HSDPA 850 / 1900 and GSM 850 in its current incarnation, leaving it to cling to what 1900MHz EDGE towers it can find. That makes it an untouchable product for all but the hardest-core North Americans who are willing to throw both high-speed data and maximum signal coverage out of the window just to be able to put the pinnacle of WinMo 6.1 engineering in their pocket.

The box is... well, interesting. You've got to give them that, anyway. The outer cardboard trapezoid peels away to reveal a glossy black inner one, foretelling the polished sheen of the device itself. We recommend you stay
pretty at all times when using this phone, because you'll see yourself constantly reflected at virtually every angle. Haircuts, teeth whitening procedures, clean shaves for the men, you know the drill.

Firing up the phone for the first time takes you through the typical customization procedure that owners of most Windows Mobile handsets will be well-acquainted with; it's an annoying but seemingly necessary procedure that just delays your impatient soul from exploring your purchase for yet a couple additional minutes while HTC sprinkles some flavor on the default Windows Mobile shell.

Sandisk Sansa View 16GB

The first feature you notice on the Sandisk Sansa View 16GB is the quick boot up. It just takes a few seconds and you are ready to play music. The scrolling click wheel works very similar to those on traditional ipods. The big difference on the click wheel is that instead of being touch sensitive the wheel actually moves with your thumb on the Sansa View.

Another great thing about the Sansa is that it’s a plug and play device, so there is no need to install any software on your computer to use it. It will be added as an external device and you can drag music directly to it. If you are looking for a new MP3 player and you don’t want the traditional iPod, this is the stuff.
