New Nokia Gaming Mobile Phone Patented

Forget the rumoured/denied PSPhone that Sony may or may not produce, Nokia have patented a device that, should it be produced, will make Sony think twice before half-heartedly riffing on the PSP’s design if the day comes. Mobile phones with decent gaming ability have always stumbled with ergonomics – buttons, D-pads, triggers, a big enough screen whilst retaining portability – but Nokia has had a brainwave and by the looks of the picture, have designed extendable

Goldvish Le Million – Most Expensive Mobile Phone…Ever

Aside from being the ghastly mobile phone you’ve ever seen, the item in the picture is also the most expensive mobile phone ever produced, the Golfvish Le Million. It retails at a fairly steep 1 million Euros, but you might have more trouble getting hold of one given that Goldvish have only made three of them. I still reckon they’re overestimating demand. The phone is made of 18 carat gold, and is adorned with ‘diamonds of the highest quality’ and still

Blackberry’s new mobile keypad design to replace QWERTY?

I don’t know if you’ve ever used a blackberry, but I personaly don’t find the keypad very user friendly. The arrangement of tiny QWERTY keys is painstakingly difficult to type with and my messages are littered with errors. I’m not a regular Blackberry user, and I’m sure some people will disagree, but the simple fact is that the QWERTY keypad was desgined to be comfortable for a person to use at a desktop computer over a

LG Viewty Outsells Apple iPhone in Europe

UPDATE: The Extremely successful LG Viewty has been superceded by the new, beautiful and sleek LG Viewty Smart, which is set to be as successful as the classic KU990. LG has announced that they have sold 310,000 LG Viewty handsets since launch 5 weeks ago. I believe that this means the LG Viewty is outselling the iPhone in Europe, even though the Viewty hasn’t been supported with the massive PR and advertising budget of the iPhone. Apple,

T-Mobile and Three To Share Mobile Network in UK

A few hours ago it emerged that T-Mobile and Three are to share their UK mobile phone networks in an attempt to avoid the substantial costs of individual expansion. An official announcement is expected later today. Both companies have been looking to proceed with a regional expansion of their high-speed wireless networks, and by combining their networks they will be able to provide greater coverage for users of third-generation services such as internet browsing, video calling, and

Give the GiftVOX of VoIP This Christmas

MOBIVOX is already well-known to making Skype calling easier than ever, but it’s about to release its own service that will counter the problems that numerous reports and surveys are flagging up with existing VoIP services; namely, they’re too complicated. Now, if you’re reading a phones blog you can probably get your head around VoIP. And kids these days are frighteningly adept at picking these things up. But what about older relatives, or simply technophobic friends

Tryphone simulator lets you try out your new phone online

One of the disadvantages of shopping online is the inability to get your hands on what you’re buying, to turn it inside out, try it on for size, to push all the buttons. It’s a concern for any retailer of expensive merchandise because customers have got to feel certain they’ve comfortable with the quality of the product. Mobile phones certainly fall into this category, because for me the most important part of a phone is not

Is This A New Nokia 6MP or 8MP Camera Phone?

Could this picture be a glimpse into the future of the Nokia N-series? Considering how ‘finished’ it looks, general opinion seems to be yes, it could be. Using the mystic powers of the US Patent office’s crystal ball, it’s clear that we will be treated to at least a 6MP camera (the text on the side of the phone is a little unclear – it could be an 8 – but let’s not get over-excited) on a rotational

Nokia Go Green With the 3110 Evolve

Nokia World 2007, where Nokia Comes With Music was announced, was also the stage for further information on Nokia’s commitment to being green, something they have been excited about a lot recently. Furthering this cause was the first showing of the Nokia 3110 Evolve, a mobile phone for the environmentally aware.   Based on the functional but uninspiring 3110, the Evolve gets an attractive makeover, giving a smoother, more modern look and retaining its predecessors

Nokia to Offer Unlimited Music Downloads for a Year

Update: Nokia have subsequently announced that the Comes With Music service is in fact a considerably watered down version of the one we first reported on. All tracks are to be DRM protected which means you won’t be able to transfer them to you iPod or to a cd, and the service is going to cost at least $5 a month. For those who didn’t know, the annual Nokia World conference is being held in

PS3 Phone Out Now…Maybe!

Rejoice! One of the most hotly anticipated products is finally on the market and it’s…not what we expected at all! Yes, although it’s called a PS3 and looks suspiciously like a PSP, complete with triangle, circle, square and cross buttons, the Amycall phone has nothing to do with Sony’s Playstation 3, or the recently denied PSPhone.   Breaking possibly every copyright law with huge abandon, the ‘Amycall‘ (expect a call from Samsung) ‘PS3′ (followed by

Companies That Really Should Bring Out a Phone

Although the iPhone is currently the chic number-one in terms of mobile phone design, fashion moves very quickly in this market, meaning the next big thing is only just around the corner.  But consider for a moment the more exciting prospect of a timeless piece of mobile phone design hitting the market; something ground-breaking but not over-styled, something unique and individual without becoming boring next week when everyone owns one.  Who would make a phone

Sony Ericsson Invents Drag and Drop Bluetooth

A new patent application published last week shows an innovative method of transferring files between mobile phones. The Portable device with short range communication function patent discusses a mobile phone with a “simplified procedure” for sending and receiving data using a drag and drop interface. At present sending a photo or music file isn’t particularly straightforward in most handsets. A user has to select an item from the menu, select the “send item” option, select
