Sony Ericsson SO705i

Here is the DoCoMo SO705i. The phone is made by Sony Ericsson and is part of NTT's mid end 705i lineup. I think that this pales in comparison with the higher end SO905i and the SO905iSC (Cyber-shot with 5 mega pixel AF CCD camera with xenon flash and 3x optical zoom). This pic was posted by xumdeo over at esato.

Another spy pic of the Nokia N82

this pic showed up over at mobile-review and this time the Nokia N82 makes a public appearance. I would love to see the official pics as I am not really impressed so far with the looks of the N82.

Nokia E90 gets cloned

I didn't think that the Chinese would clone the Nokia E90 but yet again I was surprised. It isn't identical to the real E90 but it borrows from the design and form factor. Like the E90 it functions as a candybar with a full screen and keypad on the outside. When flipped open, a full QWERTY keyboard is revealed and another screen with stereo speakers (one on each side). This is perfect for playing games (there is also a gaming navipad) or watching movies. I think this device is pretty cool (besides the fact that it looks like a Nokia E90). Here are the specs.

- external 2.4 inch QVGA 260K color touchscreen
- main 2.8 inch QVGA 260K color screen
- stereo speakers
- full QWERTY keyboard
- full external number keypad
- 1.3 mega pixel camera
- microSD support
- measures 114x57x18 mm
- weighs 125 grams
- nintendo games emulator
- built in support for office documents
- A2DP

The best Nokia N95 clone I have ever seen

Holy @#$%! I can't believe that this is actually a clone. I thought they made a mistake and posted pics of a real Nokia N95. This has got to be the best clone of the Nokia N95 I have ever seen. Not only does it is almost physically identical the phone's UI was copied also extremely well. Now for the part that separates this from the real thing....the specs...and here they are:

- 2.6 inch 260K color QVGA screen
- FM radio
- VGA camera
- microSD support
- bluetooth
- measures 97x52x20 mm
- weighs 89 grams

Psion Teklogix Unveils Its Rugged PDA iKon

Newest Product Offering Marks Company's return to PDA Market
PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2007) - Signifying the dawn of a new era in the PDA marketplace, Psion Teklogix (LSE:PON), a global provider of solutions for mobile computing, wireless data collection, imaging and RFID, announced its return to the market it pioneered over 20 years ago, launching today its newest product, the rugged PDA - iKonTM.

A sleek, compact and powerful design with robust built-in functionality, iKon is an ideal mobile computing device, delivering increased productivity and efficiency by enabling advanced mobile applications across the enterprise.

"We're extremely proud to be launching iKon today, a day when we're also celebrating our 40th year of existence in a very exciting marketplace," said Psion Teklogix CEO Jacky Lecuivre. "iKon is the most advanced handheld computer our company has ever brought to market. It is a very synergistic addition to our portfolio as it enables us to truly address the needs of mobile workers, helping them do their jobs with the best possible mobile computing support."

He added, "With the launch of this new rugged PDA, the company continues to evolve in the best Psion tradition. We are universally acknowledged with having created the PDA, with the introduction of the original Psion Organiser in 1984, and today we're proving how our past is indeed the way to our future."

Customers and partners worldwide were solicited for input and feedback on the types of capabilities they expect in a rugged PDA. "We listened to our customers, to the point where they became an integral part of the design and features definition process. Consequently, initial market reaction to our prototypes has been immensely positive and we are extremely optimistic about the prospects for iKon," said Lecuivre.

iKon packs incredible functionality into a compact form factor with class-leading ergonomics, aesthetics, and ease of use. Whether reading barcodes with the integrated imager or scanner, or using the camera to take a colour picture, iKon is a category-leading data capture device ideal for mobile workers in dynamic applications. With a choice of three operating systems, including Microsoft Windows CE .NET 5, Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Classic and Professional, iKon offers customers an industry standard, yet leading edge platform for their applications.

The capability of iKon to fully integrate voice and data communication options onto a single device eliminates the need for multiple devices - effectively reducing capital expenditures as well as support costs. iKon delivers true anytime, anywhere, wireless voice and data communications, GPS positioning, with simultaneous WiFi, Cellular (GSM/GPRS/UMTS) and Bluetooth connectivity options. These features enable real-time information management, improved efficiencies and increased asset visibility across a customer's operations. With a full VGA display, iKon is more suitable for complex applications with sophisticated graphics than many competing devices with one-quarter VGA displays. Finally, the highest battery capacity of the market ensures full-day productivity for mobile workers.

International consulting firm Capgemini is already seeing the benefits of iKon as the company is planning to work with its client, Hydro One Networks, in Ontario, Canada, to pilot the new device on a large Smart Meter project. Hydro One Networks owns and operates one of the ten largest electricity transmission and distribution systems in North America.

iKon will be used by Hydro One installers, alongside other Psion Teklogix rugged PDAs already being used, to support the smart meter installations - part of the provincial government initiative to have electricity distribution companies install smart meters in all homes and small business by 2010.

"We're excited to be among the early adaptors of this great new device. With its rugged design and multi-mode capabilities, iKon will help in our efforts to create a culture of energy conservation across the province of Ontario," said Gord Reynolds, the Capgemini Program Manager of Field Services for the Smart Meter Project at Hydro One. Capgemini, one of the world's foremost providers of Consulting, Technology and Outsourcing services, enables its clients to transform and perform through technologies.

iKon will be available to customers through Psion Teklogix' global sales offices and value-added resellers in December 2007.

Tons of great new Sony Ericsson W890 live pics

Looks like someone bought that W890 prototype that was being offered for sale over in Poland. Whatever the case, the Polish site got their hands on one and posted tons of great live pics and even some pics from it's 3.2 mega pixel camera. I think the phone looks great and even better in all black.
