Enjoy our roundup of some of the best mobile phone stories that you may have missed this week: 1.  Android 2.1 for X8 After All? Sony Ericsson announced the Xperia X8 earlier this week and although it looks like a great little phone, we were a little disheartened by the presence of Android v1.6 as the OS.  However, Sony Ericsson are in talks to perhaps bring v2.1 to the X8 either at launch or a very short time after. Good news! 2.  Julie, Come to Your Window(s Phone 7) It’s not only Android that Sony Ericsson are developing for at the […]

INQ Confirm Android Plans for 2010

You probably know the INQ brand from phones such as the Facebook phone and their recent Twitter phones, and those who follow the manufacturer’s plans closely may also recall that around this time last year, INQ revealed they would be bringing Google’s Android operating system to a future device.

Three New Sony Ericsson Phones Leaked

We have seen Sony Ericsson’s Xperia range grow from a single device, the X1, to encompass the X2 and their range of Android phones in the shape of the X10 family.  Now though, we have a selection of new faces to add to the ever-expanding collection. The first is codenamed Shakira and is a device along the lines of the X10 Mini, but with a bigger screen.  Just to confuse us all though, it will be smaller than the X10, so we’re guessing the screen will be 3″-3.5″.  Shakira shares almost exactly the same design as the Mini, but loses […]

Enjoy our roundup of some of the best mobile phone stories that you may have missed this week: 1.  Samsung Galaxy Tab Breaks Cover. Tablet computers are the current ‘big thing’, and this is the first shot of Samsung’s effort, the Galaxy Tab.  This model runs Android and has a 7″ screen, but it will be joined in the future by another two models, one with a 10″ screen.  What makes it interesting to us is the TouchWiz UI, as you can clearly see a Phone button, making it extremely likely the Galaxy Tab will be able to make calls […]
