Windows Mobile 6.6 coming in February, 7.0 to be delayed again?

Microsoft plans to launch the 6.6 update for their Windows Mobile OS next month bringing capacitive touchscreen support, among other performance optimizations and bug fixes.
main Windows Mobile 6.6 coming in February, 7.0 to be delayed again?
The official announcement of the new version will most probably take place at the MWC 2010 in February in Barcelona.

I have to admit the Windows Mobile 6.5 did well into the smartphone sector and the capacitive-display-packing HTC HD2 was a huge success. So bringing native capacitive touchscreen support is definitely the next logical step.
Despite the fact Windows Mobile 7 is cooking in the Microsoft labs, it seems they won’t give up the 6.5 version and will continue to improve it. The bad news is that this extra work on the 6.6 version may result in delaying WinMo 7 for the early 2011, instead of releasing it in 2010.
I am still hoping that this rumor is wrong and the actual Microsoft event in Barcelona will be the unveiling of Windows Mobile 7. After all Microsoft were pretty clear that even WinMo 6.5 wasn’t a part of their plan, so why bother with another minor update?


Android Secrets : Alphabet and Desert

Whoever creates the codenames of Android sure has a sweet taste. We’ve known Cupcakes, Donuts and Eclairs so far. We can conclude Androids developer like alphabet as well as sweet. The sequel was rumored to be called Flan, but now there’s talk of it being called Froyo.

Don't you 'miss-hear' it as Frodo in the Lord of The Ring. Froyo itself stands for FROzen YOgurt, another sweets.But, if Android was the first, then we have Cupcakes, Donuts, Eclairs, and then Flan/Froyo, where is the 'B'????
And what 'B' stands for? Buttercake, Brownies??

Sony Ericsson Plants two New Tree : Elm and Hazel

Quotes from Source :

Today Sony Ericsson presented their latest Greenheart tree-hugging phones - the aptly named Elm and Hazel. Those two are no slackers in functionality as they come with Wi-Fi, GPS and pioneer social networking integration via homescreen widgets. They also pack some innovative sound enhancing technologies such as Noise Shield, Clear Voice and Intelligent Volume Adaptation.

Let's have a look to them. The First 'Elm', have a 5 MP Camera with AutoFocus, also comes with Wi-Fi, and GPS with pre-installed Google Maps and WisePilot. Built by candybar form, this handsets give 2.2" QVGA screen 256K colors including Acclerometer for Auto Rotate. This handset also featured by Threaded SMS (Chat-Like SMS), MMS, E-Mail with Push Email, with Full Connection of GPRS,EDGE,HSDPA,HSUPA and Wi-Fi, also Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP and microUSB. The Camera itself supports Face Detection, Smile Detection, and Geo Tagging, with Video Call support. Another feature is Integrated Social Networking Application, Widget Manager and some Green Application.

While 'Hazel' comes with Slide form and 2.6" toucscreen 16M colors and 15mm thickness. It also have 5MP AutoFocus Camera, Wi-Fi, and GPS with pre-installed Application. Other feature are almost same with the 'Elm'.

Interestingly, Sony Ericsson mention a microUSB charger in the retail packages of both phones, which would make them the second and third phones by the manufacturer to feature that port after the XPERIA X10. Unfortunately, it's clearly visible from the shots that the Hazel and Elm both have proprietary FastPorts on their sides. Again, both the Elm and Hazel have quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support and dual-band HSPA (2100/900). Interestingly the devices are also HD Voice ready thanks to the AMR-WB audio codec.

Nokia N97 Mini Review : The MiniMax

Nokia N97 Mini Review : The Minimax
Say hello to the N97 younger brother. Yes, this time it has its mini version. Not only cut the dimension, this mini also remove some feature, like FM Transmitter and N-Gage. But still, this junior comes special. Built-in Full Touch Display and Full QWERTY keyboard, this phone offers great functionality with full connectivity. Rich multimedia and Office application are the main menu of this handset.

Key Features
- 3.2” Wide Display 360x640 pixels
- 5 Mpix Camera with Carl Zeeiss Tessar Optic + Dual LED Flash
- Full QWERTY keyboard
- ARM11 434 MHz processor
- S60 5th Edition
- 1200mAh battery

Display & Interface
Because the giant loose its weigh, they got smaller dimension. Comes in about 1.5mm smaller, make this phone easy to hold. N97 mini empower the slide-out function with solid equipment. This slide mechanism can built it into a small computer by lifting the display. Powered by 16 Million colors 3.2” inch screen, the icons are placed perfect. Still the same with its S60 5th family, the icon style aren’t far different, quite big to ‘touch’. Still, this phone comes with stylus to ease the operate.

Entertainment on The Go
As an N-series family. This phone still developing its multimedia ability. Boosted with a big 5 Megapixels Camera with AutoFocus and Dual LED Flash, this phone can say more both in outdoor and indoor. Of course still, the indoor quality is below the outdoor ones. Switch to Music function, there are stereo speakers with crunch sound and some sound quality improvement setting to hear music better. The 3.5mm Headset Jack and A2DP make it more powerful.

Office and Connection
Fated as a multimedia phone doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have another arm. Same with previous version, this phone comes with complete HSDPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB Cable until Built-in GPS Receiver integrated with Nokia Maps and 3 months free audio navigation license. For office task, N97 mini hands it over to QuickOffice and Adobe PDF Viewer. Unfortunately, the Office application are designed to be a viewer only. Need furhter purchase to make it an editor too.

The Wares
Being a S60 5th phone give a huge selection off application to be installed. Morover the MIDP is also supporting the aplication availability. Pre installed with Social Networking application and E-mail Client make more sense in this small phone. The hardware are also as good as we expected. The battery capacity is big enough, 1200mAh. For addition, we receive some reports that much usage in game causing the overheat in back body. But that’s not make worse the 128MB RAM and ARM11 434 MHz processor phone with 8GB memory. The choice is up to you.
