Tasty bits – 22

June 21, 2007

The iPhone launch (now with YouTube support) is one week away. Are you ready for total chaos? I have a plan :)

In the meantime, here’s a nice article comparing the iPhone with other devices, including two from my current stable (the Nokia N95 and the Sony Ericsson M600i).

Speaking of my favorite phone, the Nokia N95 just got better! And if you’re still not convinced, here’s yet another review. Alternatively, the Nokia E90 is also a good choice

I’m also pretty excited about Nokia’s Mobile Web Server – it’s a very interesting idea. BTW, here’s a look into the Nokia Media Transfer application I mentioned last week.

The Sony Ericsson K850i is official, complete with a 5 megapixel camera (with auto-focus, macro, xenon flash, and powered lens cover), and supposedly tri-band HSDPA (as well as quad-band EDGE). Yummy :)

Opera announced a flash replacement for phones, and released a beta version of Opera Mini 4. After playing with it, I have to admit that it’s a pretty good web browser, especially for a Java application – in fact, it’s quite similar to Nokia’s very nice web browser.

The Meizu M8 (miniOne) is still evolving and is supposed to be available in late 2007.

Finally, here’s another installment in the multi-part review of the OQO Model 02.


Sony Ericsson P1i hands on

May 15, 2007

So I went to the UIQ Fast Track here in San Francisco and I managed to get my hands on a prototype Sony Ericsson P1i :)

This is one sexy phone! Here are some pictures

I also received a Sony Ericsson M600i for simply attending the conference, which was a lovely perk.

The Motorola RIZR Z8 was also being gifted, but since I’ve never owned a phone with both a touch screen and a QWERTY keyboard, I opted for the M600i (ironically mine came with an AZERTY – aka. French – keyboard).
