Differences Between iphone and Blackberry

With the launch of Apple iPhone, RIM has faced challenge like never before to keep up their sales of Blackberry phones like many other mobile phone manufacturers. Everyone will agree with me that iPhone is a revolutionary product that changed the way people used to think and act with their mobile phones. But Blackberry was always there to suit the needs of the corporate people. What makes these full featured phones so different? Let us discover 10 differences between these two blockbuster mobile phones.

Neoi 906E is world's first, thinnest, most beautiful, most calculator-esque QWERTY phone

We like to keep a positive attitude around here, so we're trying not to be overly um... skeptical about this one, even though "World's" followed by anything awesome (in this case "thinnest," and "first micro sized Java J2Me hand phone") sets off a few alarms. The Neoi 906E, at least in the renders, is an exceedingly thin GSM / GPRS handset with a QWERTY keyboard, though beyond that, it's all pretty unimpressive and run of the mill. It's got an MP3 player, a camera, a microSD slot, plus some shortcut keys on the upper right of the phone, but details about its actual specs are a bit sparse. It's not clear when or where the 906E is going to be available, but it doesn't seem like Neoi plans to cut out the middle man -- the minimum order number is 500.

O2 Ice

The O2 Ice was actually the phone that was the inspiration to this article. It’s a small stylish 3G phone that has the usual built-in MP3 player, 1.3 megapixel camera, bluetooth etc. It’ll be out in September in the UK for around $200.

GoldVish ‘Le Million’ Piece Unique $1.3 million

Guinness World Records certified GoldVish SA’s ‘Le Million’ Piece Unique on January 29th, 2008. The Geneva-based luxury communications company’s expensive mobile phone was designed by Emmanuel Gueit as an addition to the Illusion Collection. The phone is made of 18k white gold and set with 20 carats of VVS1 (only microscopically flawed) diamonds. The phone also features Bluetooth, 2 GB of storage, FM radio, a digital camera and MP3 playback.

The Guinness-backed world’s most expensive cell phone is available only by special order.

The Diamond Crypto Smartphone $1.3 million

One candidate for world’s most expensive cell phone is the Diamond Crypto Smartphone, created by luxury accessory producer Peter Aloisson of Moscow-based JSC Ancort. Its price stems from the platinum body, the cover adorned with 50 diamonds—including eight which are rare blue diamonds. Additionally, the Ancort logo and the navigation key are made of 18k rose gold.

Built on the Windows CE, this most expensive cell also features a high-resolution color TFT display and a 256 bit cryptographic algorithm. This expensive mobile phone is capable of SMS, MMS, E-mail, Internet, WAP, JAVA support and also has a media player.

Archos announces Archos 2 8GB candybar PMP

Archos has always been the also-ran of the portable media player scene. While Apple’s iPods, Creative’s Zen players, Microsoft’s Zunes, and even Sansa’s line of MP3 players have been at the forefront of consumer consciousness, Archos runs a distant fifth in most customers’ hearts and minds. And unfortunately, the recently announced Archos 2 looks like it’ll change that perception not a jot.

Apple iPhone

The Apple iPhone combines three amazing products - a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and a breakthrough internet communications device with the best email ever on a mobile phone, web browsing, maps, and searching - into one small and lightweight handheld device.

iPhone also introduces an entirely new user interface based on a large multi-touch display and pioneering new software, letting you control everything with just your fingers.

Sony HD Handycam Camcorder HDR-TG5V includes built-in GPS

It seems like they are putting GPS capabilities into everything these days. Still, you may be a little surprised by the latest gadget to include GPS functionality. Sony has launched a high-definition camera with a built-in GPS receiver. The High Definition Handycam Camcorder HDR-TG5V has the ability to record full HD 1920×1080 video.

Onkyo announces E702A9 media PC

The media center PC is a strange griffin in the zoology of home computers. Anyone seriously interested in a media center has tethered a spare PC by HDMI umbilical to their flat screen television and enjoy internet content from the snug, supine glory of the couch. Those who haven’t are likely using their computers at a desk, and that computer’s very placement defines its function as being less about watching movies than doing more traditional computer work.

The media center PC, then, is a strange niche product answering the actual needs of no one: it is more expensive than a home theater PC and an office PC. But that hasn’t stopped Onkyo Japan from announcing the latest in their line of Sotec machines, the E702A9.

AT&T Matrix Pro gets debut at MWC

Today, AT&T unveiled the Matrix Pro at MWC. Amongst the new features are a compact new design with a larger LCD screen, a chat-style view of text messages, tri-band 3G for the best global coverage possible, an upgraded camera, more memory, and a faster processor.

The Matrix Pro runs Windows Mobile 6.1 and like its predecessor, sports two spring-loaded keyboards. Additionally there is GPS support for services like AT&T Navigator. Other services that can be used are MobiTV, Napster Mobile, eMusic Mobile, AT&T Mobile Banking and CV on-demand video.

With a large LCD screen, two full keyboards, enhanced multimedia functionality, and the ability to edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, the Matrix Pro could be something that AT&T customers may take a look at over the iPhone.

Logitech Harmony 1100 universal remote

Whether you are a home theater enthusiast or not, you probably have multiple remotes floating around your living room. One for your TV, one for your set-top box, another for the stereo, and a fourth for the DVD/Blu-ray player might be a basic setup, but then people are adding on HTPCs, receivers, different set-top boxes (Roku, etc.), the remote controls really start piling up. (My air conditioner even has one.) A solution has always been a universal remote but these have tended to be clunky devices that were a hassle to setup and maintain. Logitech’s Harmony line has fought against that, and continues to fight the good fight with the Harmony 1100.

Nokia 5630 at a Glance

The 5630 uses Symbian S60 as its operating system, making it a smartphone! A set of dedicated music keys, a MicroSD card slot and a 3.5mm jack plug confirm its musical ability. It has a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera with a dual-LED flash. The phone is just 12mm thick and weighs only 83 grams! This is a 3G handset with HSDPA and Wi-Fi.

Battery standby is currently quoted as being 400 hours - a mere 16 days or so - with seven hours talktime.

Samsung Make S5600 and S5230 Official!

We had a sneak peak of the Samsung S5600 last month where we likened it to the ever-so-successful Tocco and generally got a little bit excited about it. Now Samsung have made an official announcement of the S5600 official along with the S5230, a sister phone with differing features allowing you to pick which suits your needs best. Let’s take a look at the S5600 first:

Samsung Armani M7500 Night Effect Ultimate Review.

Samsung first joined forces with fashion designer Armani back in late 2007 and the result was the beautiful Samsung P520 Armani, a svelte touchscreen handset with a clever interface designed specifically for it. It was a massive success and loved by both techies and fashionistas, but it was eventually overshadowed by the superior Samsung Tocco, which did the phone-side better but lacked the designer branding.

Fast forward to October 2008 and Samsung unveiled their newest collaboration with Armani, the M7500 Night Effect. This time the branding was not simply Armani, but Emporio Armani, their popular range for the younger, fashion conscious person. Since then we’ve had to wait a while until the M7500 was ready fo

Samsung Pixon M8800


The M8800 Pixon is the latest big-touchscreen, big-megapixel camera phone from Samsung. Using a tweaked TouchWiz operating system previously seen on the Samsung Tocco, the M8800 may not have smartphone credentials but it remains easy to use, finger friendly and suitably powerful. All this would mean little if the Pixon didn't have the features, however this phone manages to pack everything from SRS Virtual Surround Sound to GPS in!

Features at a Glance.

  * Make your pictures look their best with software tweaks such as face and smile detection, plus shake reduction.

The impressive LG Arena is set to be LG's flagship mobile phone for 2009 and instead of debuting it at Mobile World Congress 2009, LG let it bask in the limelight a week or so before, so everyone could get a really good look without being sidetracked by something else shiny in the next booth. Was it worth it? Absolutely!

Apparently they will be releasing a collection of five models called the Black Aura collection, and the designer is a “well known” Italian designer. Currently there are two versions of the African Blackwood phone, one with pink gold highlights named the Gresso Blackwood Gold Edition, and one made entirely of African Blackwood. In addition to the two African Blackwood phones Gresso also make a phone made entirely of pink gold named the Gresso Gold phone. Initially, the phones will be on sale only in Russia.

Sony Ericsson Black Diamond = $300,000 (£162,162)

Apparently the Black Diamond will be available in 2007, not from Sony Ericsson but by a company called VIPN. Initially only 5 unique numered pieces will be available for the unbelievable price of, wait for it… $300,000.

With regards to the specifications, don’t expect anything remarkable for your money.

Can anyone hide from the next iPhone avalanche?

According to a new report, Palm may be launching their Pre smartphone a day before Apple is rumored to unveil the next-gen iPhone. If Palm were facing any other rival but Apple, I wouldn’t be complaining. But timing the product crucial for Palm’s survival dangerously close to the most anticipated smartphone launch in 2009 files.

Jewel Bracelet Flash Drive for fashionable and stealthy storage

From time to time I’ve covered spy gadgets that James Bond would be happy to carry with him on any of his missions. But of course in the world of espionage, I would be remiss if I didn’t cover gadgets that any female international spy or private investigator would love to have on hand or in this case, the wrist.

The Jewel Bracelet Flash Drive is as pretty as it is a functioning USB flash drive. On the surface, the bracelet is adorned with stylish decorative crystals and comes in either a gold or silver (simulated I’m sure) faceplate. The drive is accessed by pivoting the hidden USB connector and then the flash drive can be used to either gather data or deploy software payloads.

So if any ladies out there in the covert business need a stealthy memory device such as this, the Jewel Bracelet Flash Drives comes with an 8GB memory capacity and can be purchased from Brando for only $33.

NYTimes reviews the Panasonic GH1

The Panasonic GH1 is a Micro 4/3rds camera that has had high expectations for a while. Tech guru David Pogue over at the NYTimes has reviewed the GH1 already and for the most part it seems very positive.

The GH1, which comes out at the end of May for $1500 with a lens, features 12MP (although the sensor is 14MP) images, 1080p HD video at 24p, 720p HD video, and stereo microphones (plus a headphone jack.) Pogue notes that Canon and Nikon were the first to offer HD video in digital SLR cameras and that now Panasonic has gone further with allowing for better auto-focusing while filming. Additionally, the Panasonic GH1 allows users to film clips for as long as they would like to. In contrast, the Canon and Nikon versions only permit filming for a certain amount of time.

However, the camera isn’t all perfect. Pogue notes that, “a lever around the mode dial makes it far too easy to turn on exposure bracketing. That’s where the exposure level varies three times in successive shots, ensuring that at least one of them will look right. Unfortunately, if you turn it on accidentally, then two of every three pictures you take will be over- or underexposed.”

Read more over at the NYTimes. Decide for yourself if the buy will be worth it for this summer’s travels.

LaCie releases Data/Share storage gadget

LaCie have released an interesting new storage device this week that combines the advantages of having a USB stick with the ability to use both SD and microSD cards.

It is called the LaCie Data/Share and as you can see in the video above is splits into two and sports two USB connections. The white section houses a slot for a microSD card while the red section has a slot for SD cards. By doing this LaCie hope to make it easier to access your data by providing a simple way to utilize a USB connection on a machine with multiple storage formats.

LaCie also highlight the ability to split the data on the device so you keep everything you want to share on one side and all your personal files on the other.

The Data/Share is compatible with Windows (2000, XP, Vista), Mac (OS X v10.3.5 or higher), and Linux and is USB 2.0 and 1.1 compatible. It measures 70 x 35 x 13 mm and comes with a USB extension cable, strap for a keyring, and a microSD to SD card adaptor. You can pick one up from the LaCie Online Store for just $9.99.

Dell multi-touch Studio One 19 All-In-One now available

All-in-ones have been de rigeur ever since Apple first pioneered them with their sexy iMac line of desktops, but now Dell is entering the fray with the sexy Studio One 19.

Available now in the United States starting at $699, the Studio 19 series starts off with a 2.5GHz dual core Intel CPU, an 18.5 inch LCD at a rather paltry 1366×768, 2GBs of RAM, a slot-load DVD burner, nVidia GeForce 9200 graphics, a built-in web came and a 320GB hard drive.

Where the Studio One 19 gets interesting is if you plonk down an extra hundred dollars for the multi-touch display, which will allow you to manipulate photos and text by swiping, turning or pivoting one or more fingers across the screen.

You can go higher end, of course. The Studio One 19’s beefiest configuration starts at under $1000 and features a quad-core CPU, 64-bit Windows Vista, 4gb of RAM, a 500GB hard drive and an nVidia GeForce 9400 GPU. An additional $80 will buy you a 650GB hard drive, and another $150 will get you a slot-loaded Blu-Ray drive.

It’s not a bad deal for about a grand, it comes in the usual Studio series color options, including navy, charcoal, pink and red for an extra 20.

The big issue here is screen real estate. 1366×768 is rather laughable for a 19-inch desktop in this day and age, and there’s no option to improve it. But if you want to leap into multi-touch, this is an inexpensive kit to get your bearings with the technology.
