Android press event scheduled for January 5th


Well it looks like Google is about to announce some interesting stuff related ot their Android mobile platform on January 5th. It probably has something to do with the HTC Nexus One.

With the launch of the first Android-powered device just over a year ago, we’ve seen how a powerful, open platform can spur mobile product innovation. And this is just the beginning of what’s possible.

Please join us in Mountain View on January 5, for an Android press gathering.

Not to sound like a broken record here…but with all the hype surrounding this event (and the Nexus One / “Google Phone“) , the Apple Tablet rumors (and rummoed announced in early January..), what the hell is Microsoft doing with Windows Mobile? Is Steve Ballmer going to announce anything new during his Keynote at CES (on the same day as Google’s event!)?

Here’s an extremely blurry video of the Nexus One in action and some quick iPhone size comparison:

I still firmly believe that the HTC Nexus Oneis just Google’s new ADP phone (not a “so called “Google Phone”) and that the retail version of it (HTC Passion) will be released later on..But I could be wrong though..

Philips D908 WM6.5 phone launching in China


What must be the worst looking smartphone ever designed is now launching in China. I’m talking about the Philips D908 Windows Mobile 6.5 smarphone pictured above. Not much is know about it other than the info info on Microsoft China’s product page. It is supposedly shipping with WM6.5 (even tough the screenshot shows WM6.1 and the product page mention WM5!) and feature 1gb of onboard RAM (this is a first for a WinMo device), 2gb of ROM, a 5Mpix camera, a 3.2inch WVGA touchscreen and is GSM / CDMA compatible.
