Sprint Touch Pro 2: $599, ships Sept. 8

25

It hasn't been too much of a secret that we're expecting the Sprint Touch Pro 2 in the early part of September. We've already seen a direct ship date of Sept. 3, and now it looks like that's been pushed to Sept. 8, which could point to an in-store date of Sept. 13, if Sprint follows its MO of Sunday launches. Price is $599.99, before rebate and subsidy, we presume.

After the break, we look at a gem of a leak scored by bigchico68 at SprintUsers.com. (And thanks, aero, for the tip!)

LG Monaco & Snapdragon, Windows Mobile 7

3

We're still expecting LG to ramp up its Windows Mobile fare in a massive way, and this phone could do so with a running start. The LG "Monaco" — yet another in that long line (see here, here and here) of AT&T leaks from Engadget — is pretty close to that list of supposed Windows Mobile 7 required specs. Here's what's listed:

  • Quad-band EDGE, tri-band 3G.
  • Windows MObile 7.
  • 3.2-inch 480x800 touchscreen (that's a little under the 3.5-inch requirement).
  • 1,500 mAh battery (may change).
  • Qualcomm QSD8650 snapdragon processor.
  • WiFi.
  • 5MP camera with autofocus.
  • Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR.
  • AGPS
  • MicroSD.
  • And as an accessory, a Pico-projector.

Don't think that September availability date's gonna happen, but this is still a sure sign that good things are ahead from LG.

Review: Rabbit Wars

Review: Rabbit Wars

In the world of Mobile Gaming, it seems that developers are leaning towards whimsical themes. For example: Rabbit Wars from AIM Productions.

In a world where fuzzy bunnies are not so cute and cuddly, tanks and machine guns are the tools of the trade. Various factions battle each other for superiority over the best carrot patches.

This game doesn’t leave me all warm and fuzzy; so stick around to see what’s wrong with the “lean mean rabbit machines” of Hare Hill.

Verizon Omnia II outed on Samsung site

14

Whoopsie. It appears Samsung just spilled a few more beans as to the existence of the Omnia II on Verizon.

We'd already seen an inventory sheet from Best Buy showing the phone on the Big V. The Boy Genius Report now says the Aug. 23 date listed there is an in-stock date and not an actual launch date. But BGR also has spied the Omnia II on Samsung's Web site. And at the time of this writing, the site now lists "We apologize but we are currently doing maintenance. Please try back in a few minutes."

"Maintenance," as we all know, is code for "All right. ... Who screwed the pooch?"

So, look for the Omnia II any time now, most likely.

Update: OK, so the peanut gallery, er, folks in the comments are saying this page actually had been up for a few days. And to that we respond thusly.

How developers submit apps to Marketplace

1

We're getting closer day by day to the long-awaited launch of the Windows Marketplace for Mobile. In the slideshow above (hit the full-screen button if you actually want to see anything) we get a look at what developers see when they're registering apps for the Marketplace. Inside baseball, for sure, but interesting nonetheless. [via Windows Mobile Team blog]

And one item to note is on Slide 8, under "Payment Information." It appears that to pay through the Mobile Operator system, an app must be priced using choices Microsoft provides. Otherwise, purchase is only available using a credit card. (See our previous discussion on 99-cent apps.)

Choose a price for your product from the list of available Mobile Operator price points below. The prices in each market are calculated based on your selection.

The number of Mobile Operator price points is limited but ensures that your application will be available for purchase via mobile operator billing (with participating operators). If you wish to select a different price point select "choose your own price." In this case, users will only be able to pay for your application using a credit card.

We'll just have to see what kind of headaches that causes. If you want some more goodies, check after the jump for a slide show of how developers register for the Marketplace.

RIM purchases Torch Mobile; Iris Browser for Windows Mobile will be discontinued

20


Word dropped this morning that Torch Mobile, makers of the Iris Browser, had been purchased by Research in Motion. That's great news for BlackBerry fans, who have been in dire need of a browser for, well, ever. However, this is bad news for Windows Mobile. We just heard back from Torch Mobile spokesman George Staikos, and the response is unequivocal:

The company will no longer continue developing for Windows Mobile or Windows-CE.

Bad news, indeed, if you're set on using Webkit. The good news is that we still have a number of more-than-decent browsers available, including Skyfire, Opera Mobile and even Internet Explorer, which is slowly getting better. And we're still looking for the mobile version of Firefox in the coming months.
