The G705 is the most powerful sliding phone made by Sony Ericsson. What I mean powerful are the features – WiFi, aGPS with Google Maps for Mobile, 1GB included M2 memory, built-in FM radio, RSS reader, and a full HTML browser. What else do you want? How about a 3.2 mega pixel camera that let you up load video directly to YouTube without downloading to your pc first. The 2.4 inch screen is excellent for checking emails and browsing the Internet. If you have enough patience, wait for it to show up at at&t stores in Q1 2009 for US consumers. However, for those who are looking for an even more powerful slider phone – G705u, the first UMA enabled phone from Sony Ericsson. It will only be available to Orange (most part of Europe). Accessories for Sony Ericsson G705 include: Battery, Battery charger, 1GB Memory Stick Micro, USB cable, Stereo PHF, Sony Ericsson PC Suite, Media manager, and User guide.
We are getting close to the big day for the HTC Touch Diamond launch party in the United States. And you might wonder how much the HTC Diamond Touch is going to cost at Sprint. We have an unofficial answer – The HTC Diamond Touch for Sprint is set to release on September 14th for $249.99 after $100 mail-in rebate with a service agreement. This can be the second iphone killer from Sprint, given the fact that the Samsung Instinct was selling pretty hot since its launch in early July this year. The Touch Pro is also around the corner. The Diamond surely has the advantage of both a keyboard and a touchscreen over the Instinct. However, it costs over $100 more than the Sprint Instinct. Well it’s QWERTY-versus-touchscreen time, which one would you go for?
Whether you buying or renting a place, the very first thing you do is to get your home phone service activated even before you move into the new place. Whether you are poor or rich, you still need a basic tool to communicate to the outside world while at home. Nowadays, people start wonder why they need a telephone at home since every family member already has a mobile phone. Why pay extra $30 or $50 for something that you don’t need to use? Ever since the wireless companies offer unlimited nights and weekends calling features into the cellular plans, you might have thought that people wouldn’t use their landlines at home anymore. The truth is people cut down the home phone usage, but unless the cellular network can significantly improve the voice quality, your landlines are still important for communicating with friends and family from home. First, the obvious reason, your home phone doesn’t get affected by the weather, and doesn’t even use regular electricity. As long as the phone is plugged to a phone jack outlet, you can start making phone calls. As for a cell phone, the call quality depends on the location, outdoor and any open area usually get much better receptions than inside your house or apartment. Weather is another factor that determines the quality of calls made from your mobile phone. Thunder storms can severely interrupt the cellular signals from your local wireless cell towers. One important factor is that your home phone is connecting to your local 911 center. So in any emergency by dialing 911, you can be easily located with help. So, in conclusion, do you still need a landline for your home? Yes, you do. And there are alternatives that you can pay much less than $30 you normally play. We will discuss these alternatives in the next few posts.
Is the Treo Pro coming to Sprint anytime soon? When it comes to all the Palm smartphone releases, Sprint is always the first one to have them, at least a few months of exclusivity before Verizon Wireless. This time, Palm released the unlocked version before they put it up for sale through the carriers. Well that’s one of the ways to get the products faster to consumers’ hands. Typically, it takes time for every carrier to customize and test the phone for their network’s use. Depending on how extensive the testing is, it can take carriers months finalize the phone even after the product is fully tested at Palm’s own lab. So, will Sprint get the Treo Pro this year? Definitely before the Christmas shopping season. Compare Treo 800w and Treo Pro before you buy.
New phones just keep flooding in the soon be ended summer season. Samsung is introducing a new basic flip phone for Verizon Wireless next month called Knack. I would rather call it Snack, at least it’s more catchy – it’s a very simple and ultra-thin flip that offers dedicated 911 and ICE (in case of emergency) keys. Dual screens, one on the outside, the bigger one on the inside. There is a very noticeable red, white, and blue combo keys and port covers at the side of the phone. You might have mistaken it as a special edition. But it’s meant to be simple. This phone will set you back $39 with a 2-year contract. For such a low price, the build quality is amazing.
