Loads of HTC Leo pics, more specs

Getting tired of the HTC Leo yet? How about its massive 4.3-inch screen and Snapdragon processor? OK, us either.

B3ler3fonte at XDA Developers [via wmpu] is letting loose with some more details, including:

  • No TV-out support.
  • No digital compass.
  • As for the size: "Phone actually feels great holding it and i can say that despite its screen size, its weigh and size (meaning that its really thin) r great advantages."
  • It's got a 1,230mAh battery (at least right now).
  • It'll work as a USB host. (as seen on the Palm 800w)
  • Video res is 640x480.

More pics from B3ler3fonte after the break.

Kinoma Play updated, is now location-aware

5

Kinoma Play, one of our favorite Windows Mobile multimedia players has been updated and now sports location-based features and has tied it into its built-in Twitter app. (Pretty cool for spying on your tweeting neighbors.)

In addition, tweets containing YouTube or Flickr images now open within Kinoma Play instead of launching a browser.

There are a few more bugfixes and updates in this build, too. Find 'em all on the Kinoma blog, and get the update directly in the Kinoma Play app.

Opera Mini 5 Beta out; quick install available

3

  

So over the last few days you may have heard about Opera releasing their latest beta of Opera Mini, version 5 — which of course is different from Opera Mobile.  The former relies on Java and renders on a server (like Skyfire), whereas the latter runs natively on Windows Mobile and runs direct to the web.

It's been 2 years since version 4 came out, so it makes sense for an overhaul. 

There seems to be a hardcore following of Opera Mini out there though, so we just took it for a spin.  Our thoughts?  Yeah, it's pretty darn good.  In fact, you can really feels how Opera is aiming to merge both Mini and Mobile into one — the graphics in Mini look more and more like Mobile and Mobile 9.7 beta is getting Mini's server-based rendering in the guise of "Turbo Mode".

If you already have Java installed, then just hop here to download the Opera Mini 5 update.  Have no idea about any of this stuff but just want to try it? Boxer112 cab'd it up for us, which you can download from your favorite file host  or grab it from ppcgeeks. Just run the .cab and bam, you'll have an Opera Mini 5, Start menu icon and Java installed.  Easy!

See the full press release here on Opera Mini 5

Google Sync now pushes Gmail!

Google Sync now pushes Gmail!

Early this year Google released Google Sync, which makes your calendar and apps work is if they were on an Exchange server. Missing from the app, of course, was push capability for Gmail.

That day has come, people.

Google just announced that Google Sync now supports push Gmail for Windows Mobile (5.0 and higher). The usual caveat applies, however: If you're already using an Exchange server for other e-mail, you're out of luck.

Get the full deets here.

Maybe Microsoft is poaching Apple employees, or maybe they're jumping ship

1

Oh, Apple ... Sure you make the trains run on time, but are the peasants truly happy? It seems that there's a bit more unrest being spawned from Cupertino.

First comes word that Microsoft is poaching wooing retail store managers away from Apple in preparation for its own line of retail stores. [Ars via TiPB] Nothing too strange there. These things happen. But for Apple, it's hardly a new trend.

But top that with new of a possible employee walkout on Oct. 3 at the Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood, Wash., and this could turn out to be a full-on to-do. Losing the managers is bad enough. But if you can't keep the worker bees happy, they'll go elsewhere. And not even Fake Steve Jobs can stop that.

And with a couple of exciting new products already in the wild (Exhibits A and B), and presumably more on the way, Microsoft couldn't come calling at a better time.

About that supposed AT&T Pure ...

About that supposed AT&T Pure ...

Ah ha! We though that looked familiar. It's been noted by commenters at Engadget that the supposed AT&T Pure we saw clad in pink just yesterday is in fact what's known in European circles as the MDA Compact V, aka another version of the Touch Pro 2 Touch Diamond 2.

Does that mean it's not the AT&T Pure? Not necessarily. But it does make us want to wait for some actual AT&T branding before giving a thumbs-up.

Verizon Omnia II on Samsung support site

1

Lookie here, folks, it's the SCH-I920! Oh, not into Verizon's name game? OK, it's the Samsung Omnia II we've been expecting, and it's on Sammy's support site. Note that the cubic butotn on the bottom has given way to what we'll call a shield design (our second choice was the gaping maw).

Also listed is what's in the box. Nothing surprising here, but we love bullet points. And so ...

  • 1500mAh battery.
  • Stylus.
  • 3.5mm headphone jack adapter that doubles as an FM radio antenna.
  • User manual CD.
  • "Companion" CD.
  • VZAM CD.
  • Quick-start guide.
  • Reference Guide.
  • Health and Safety Warranty brochure.
  • RF brochure.

You know, the usual stuff. Anyhoo, still no word on pricing or availability, but we have to believe it's sooner rather than later at this point.

A new look at the Samsung Omnia Pro B7610

1

We're not quite sure just how based in reality this is, but what you see in the promo video above is the Samsung Omnia Pro B7610, though different than what we've previously seen.

Strange things can happen in promo videos. Occasionally they let loose a juicy morsel that ends up being an unreleased device. Other times they're just made-up images. Our guess here? An Omnia Pro in a slightly different shell.

Might this be the AT&T Pure?

Might this be the AT&T Pure?

We assume that somewhere under these cases is the Windows phone known as the HTC Pure — it's just a little tough when your retinas are burning.

Anyhoo, the pics we're looking at here from HTCpedia purportedly show the variant of the HTC Touch Diamond 2 (aka the Warhawk) that we're expecting on AT&T ... eventually. It's more than a little odd to see initial images of a phone while it's case-clad, but stranger things have happened. There's not much to be gleaned other than the 5.0-megapixel camera (which we've been expecting), the usual zoom bar and four-button combo, and a stylus. The $149.99 price (after rebate and contract) is still in effect.

How about it, folks? This tickling your fancy?

WinMo 6.5 (unofficially) on Samsung Epix

0

It seems like only yesterday that we learned the Samsung Epix was slated for an official update to Windows Mobile 6.5. But if you can't wait, several *ahem* unofficial ROMs are available from XDA Developers, of course.

You can choose from builds 23017 and 23037, but do so at your own risk, of course.

For those of you who like to walk the straight and narrow, we're now expecting the official update (hopefully) sometime next month.

AT&T Microcell Pricing Rumors

AT&T Microcell Pricing Rumors


While we patiently wait for AT&T's Microcell to hit the market nationwide, pricing rumors are slowly emerging.

Judging from the site that went live today, it looks like AT&T is going to try to bundle the Microcell with their home phone and internet service. If you have both, the Microcell service is free. If you have either AT&T home phone service OR AT&T internet, the Microcell will cost you $9.99 a month. Don't have either? Then the Microcell service jumps to $19.99 per month. [via Engadget]

Still no word on how much the equipment itself will cost or any official on these prices, though AT&T has added more information on the Microcell to its Web site.  The page has information on how to set up the Microcell to whether or not it's available in your area (zip code search).  Oddly, there is no pricing information available on the site.

Thanks to everybody who sent this in

Touch Pro 2 Camera Revisited

Touch Pro 2 Camera Revisited

We decided to revisit the Touch Pro 2's camera, this time using Sprint's version of the phone. The T-Mobile Touch Pro 2's camera was nice, and we were curious how Sprint's measured up.

Software associated with the camera was virtually identical. You still lack the presence of a physical shutter button and instead have a shutter symbol on the screen to tap. The focal point is movable and, as with the T-Mobile version, there is no front-facing camera.

Follow the break for some sample shots as well as a sample video.

Possible pricing for AT&T Touch Pro 2, Touch Diamond 2 and Nüvifone G60

7

The AT&T news keeps on a'comin' this weekend. After getting an idea of when the HTC Touch Pro 2 (aka Tilt 2) may be released, and then seeing it show up in inventory, the Boy Genius Report now says it has pricing information for it, as well as a couple of other anticiapted phones. Let's do this the easy way:

  • Tilt 2: $299 after contract and $50 rebate; $499 retail.
  • Touch Diamond 2: Codenamed the Warhawk and already seen at the FCC, will be known as the Pure and will go for $199 after contract and $40 rebate. Retails for $349. Update: BGR's updated and it now appears that the Diamond 2, er, Pure will go for $149.99 after contract and $50 rebate. (See the pic here.) The retail price still stands (and is pretty darn good).
  • Garmin-Asus Nüvifone G60: It lives! And it'll cost $299.99 after contract and $100 rebate. Will retail for $549.99.

No word on release dates for the later two phones, but remember that we're expecting the Tilt 2 in about a month.

(And remember, folks, the above picture is just an early render of the Touch Pro 2 and Touch Diamond 2 on AT&T. We're actually expecting the Tilt 2 to look like this.)
