This one we’ll never forget. According to sharp-shooter Anssi Vanjoki, executive vice president of mobile solutions, said to the Financial Times today that Nokia (and just about any manufacturer who uses Android) is no better than Finnish boys who “pee in their pants” for warmth in the winter. Tell HTC that with thier record profits, Anssi.
Yeah. He said that.
So anyways, do Finnish boys really pee in their pants for warmth?
A nasty little exploit has just occurred on the official Twitter website. Putting your mouse over a tweet will automatically retweet a message to your followers. In the unfortunate case of Sarah Brown (wife of the former British Prime Minister), malicious content and pr0n was what showed up first. This security exploit has not been patched as of yet. The exploit does not affect third-party apps in any way (i.e Seesmic, Tweetdeck, Twitter Mobile site, and official Twitter apps).
Simply log off the official site for now.
To cut through the slush for you dear readers, above is a video with a bad aspect ratio of the HTC Mozart (looks a lot like a Nexus One) and has the following specs: a 1GHzQualcomm QSD 8250 heart, with 512 MB ROM and 8GB storage, 576 MB RAM, a 3.7-inch WVGA Super LCD display, 8MP CMOS camera and LI-PO 1300 mAh battery. Now go grab a small bag of whatever you humans use while watching videos, and relax for 1 minute.
Stefan’s Note: For some reason an composed this post. Oh well, back to your man-made programming.
The LUMIX GH2 is a new Micro Four Thirds camera revealed by Panasonic today, because, you know, some mystical thing called Photokina 2010 is going on right now. The GH2 has support for a 3D lens, but its main weapon is its 16 megapixel LIVE MOS, and can take 14 megapixel pictures while taking 1080p HD video at 5 frames-per-second. It’s got a 3-inch, 460,000-dot swiveling LCD touchscreen that can be used for autofocus and such, and finally the price.
Oh. Ahem, it’s the flagship Micro Four Thirds for Panasonic now, so it’s gonna cost you — $899.95 for just the body; $999.95 for a package with a 14-42mm lens; and $1499.95 for a 14-140mm bundle this December. [Panasonic]
Jon Rettinger from TechnoBuffalo is at it again with a BlackBerry Bold 9780 prototype that is close to final release. packing a 624 MHz processor, BlackBerry OS 6, 513 MB of RAM, 2.44″ HVGA+ display (480 X 360) 5 MP camera w/ auto-focus and LED flash, Bluetooth 2.1, the new Webkit browser, and AT&T 3G bands. Hit up the source link for a HD video hands-on and some more pics.
Honestly, we wouldn’t mind toting the 9780 as a sort of backup smartphone, behind a DROID 2 or iPhone 4.
The HTC Lexikon, very possibly the next HTC-built DROID in the line, is due at Verizon, as the leaked image above from Droid-Life suggests. Let’s quickly go down into the nitty-gritty: Android 2.2 with a 3.8-inch WVGA display and 480 x 800 resolution, 512 MB RAM, MSM7630 chipset, 800 MHz processor (perhaps the new Snapdragon?), 5 megapixel camera, 4 GB internal storage, QWERTY keypad, and HTC Sense UI.
On a personal note, what makes the Lexikon coolest is that awesome capacitive search button and that serious groove with the HTC logo on it.
It’s a feature every mobile user is dying for. Well, not dying, literally, but they’re hungry for it (not literally either).
The Google Docs suite is a cloud-based word processing, spreadsheet and presentation platform, and as long as you have a Google account you’re in. GDocs has such a major fanbase and reach that Microsoft has released a free online suite of its Microsoft Office 2010 software, but is nowhere near as good as Google’s.
Moving on, a statement from Google today on one of their numerous blogs indicates that editing of Google Docs will be coming to Android and the iPad in “the next few weeks”; hopefully as a full-featured Google Docs editing app. And until these apps are released, users have (and had) to rely on third-party applications.
What have we here? Either a perfect Photoshop mash-up or the 3.7-inch, 5 megapixel camera, Blackberry 6 -loaded Blackberry Storm3 without a hint of SurePress. A probably release for the Torch’s main rival is due late this year on Verizon. Interestingly, there’s a trackpad on this Storm, and the letter “M” on the top right corner. Does it stand for “meh” or “mediorce”? We’ll find out, soon enough.
Those gadget-dissecting chumps (who are geniuses) at iFixit have taken apart the PlayStation Move. Basically, to spoil it for you, they fonud out it’s like a cellphone, without the radio chip. It contains a processor, accelerometer, gyroscope, Bluetooth, vibrating motor and MEMS compass with a removable 1320mAh lithium-ion battery.
According to their tests, it’s pretty easy to take apart to access all its private bits.
