The Palm Pixi, the second webOS-powered smartphone, will hit store shelves in a few weeks. As expected, this smartphone will have an entry-level price, making it more affordable than its predecessor, the Palm Pre.This device will have a different design from the first webOS model -- a tablet shape, with a small keyboard fixed below its capacitive touchscreen.It is going to be released exclusively by Sprint, who will charge $100 with a two-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate.The Pixi will be released on November 15, and will be be available at Sprint stores, sprint.com, 1-800-SPRINT1, and at Best Buy, RadioShack and select Wal-Mart stores.It will come with a highly-capable web browser, email software, and multimedia player. Additional third-party applications will also be available.The Pixi's 2.6-inch, 320-by-400-pixel, capacitive touchscreen will be smaller and have a lower resolution screen than the current model.As mentioned earlier, this will be the second smartphone running Palm's webOS, a multi-tasking operating system able to wirelessly synchronize a wide variety of data with online services like Google, Facebook, and Microsoft Exchange.Sprint's version of the Pixi will include EV-DO mobile broadband. It will also have Bluetooth, but not Wi-Fi."Simply put, this phone is fun and easy to use; with its multi-touch screen and full QWERTY keyboard, it's a great device for messaging and social networking at a price everyone can enjoy, and delivers so many of the great features people love about Palm Pre in a fantastic new form factor," said Kevin Packingham, senior vice president - Product Development, Sprint.It won't replace the Palm Pre in Sprint's product lineup -- rather it will be a second option." via brighthand.com
"Yes, it's out. For some product codes at least, with a changelog below. The next-gen Nokia N97 v20.2.019 firmware (a.k.a. PR 2.0), the biggest, most ambitious and most eagerly awaited firmware update in Nokia's history, is now available via Nokia Software Update. In short, RAM management is better and you effectively get a lot more flash memory on C: - plus the delights of kinetic, intuitive scrolling in all applications, transforming the S60 5th Edition experience, and a mountain of smaller fixes.You can check for updates by going into the 'Sw update' application in your phone. Although the Nokia N97 does include UDP (User Data Preservation), and you should be able to apply this update over the top of your existing v11 or v12 installation, for anyone with any technical knowledge, I'd suggest taking a slightly longer route.Firstly, I'd suggest a backup (to memory card or PC), just in case. And then a sync of your data (e.g. to Outlook or Ovi or Google), just in case(!) Then, if you don't want to apply the update straightaway, wipe your N97's C disk with the usual *#7370# (default password 12345) and THEN apply the update. Then you can restore your data and files from memory card, PC or online source in the usual way.Doing what I suggest might seem like a pain, but this is a major operating system update and you'll end up with a faster, leaner phone with more space on C: free.

"It was not that long time ago when Sony Ericsson announced the Idou at MWC 2009, although the handset got renamed to Satio later. The interesting thing about the cell phone is it´s manufacturer´s “first” in several respects – the first with 12-megapixel camera, the first based on Symbian S60 and the first all-in-one multimedia smartphone in the company´s range of products. It is equipped with 3.5-inch resistive screen with native resolution of 360x640 pixels (and cinematic 16:9 ratio) and 16 mln color support, Wi-Fi, GPS, 600MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and is OpenGL ES 2.0 capable, so hardware-wise the newcomer does have what it takes to grip the attention of high-tech buffs, but let´s see if the device performs well enough to win over their love."
