Rumours leaked: E72 and E75 already??

It kinda shocked me (ok, maybe not THAT much) to see that there are already leaked rumours about a upgraded E72 and a new form factor-ed E75.


Just when everyone's just got into the hype with the E71 (and believe me when I say everyone), Nokia does what it does best.... release upgrades.

I'm not sure how true it is, based on what I've read, but if these 2 new models ARE real, I'm salivating at the E75. (Yea yea, I know Dopods and HTC's have sported this form factor, and so will the new Sony Ericsson X1, but c'mon, this is a first for Nokia.... though, it won't be touchscreen. Bummer)

Anyway, check it out for yourself....

The E72 is basically an "upgrade" of the E71, whilst the E75 is a new slide (horizontal) form factor. Some sites claim its similar in size to the E66. Hmmm, should be an interesting one to wait for.

In the meantime, I just got my hands on a E66. So far, from what I've messed with, its nice to use. Just... no.... QWERTY..... having.... withdrawal.... symptoms.....

Updates and a Treo Resurrection: New Treo Pro

Hi everyone. I am still very much alive. Been a bit held up over the past month which has kept me from completing my review and updating my site. Well, I'm back.... again.

I have still been keeping up to date with the new releases from Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, LG, Motorola (the list is endless), Apple (yes the 3G has been set loose into the world!) and a even brand that's close to my heart, the Palm Treo.

This quarter's updates:
  1. Nokia's released the 8800 Carbon Arte, N85 and N79 (N96 I just heard has started shipping for those of you who are waiting).
  2. Sony Ericsson's released W902, W595 and the W302.
  3. Samsung's released the highly acclaimed Samsung Omnia (I've actually had the chance to play with one up close. Its impressive). In black AND white variations too!
  4. LG's released the successor to the Viewty, the KC910
  5. Motorola's released a model called MOTOJEWEL. No prizes for guessing its targeted at the ladies.
  6. Last but not least, a surprise by many, Palm has just released the new Treo update which is bound to take the (treo) world by storm; the Palm Treo Pro.

Treo Pro Specs
  • Size: 114 x 60 x 13.5mm and 133g in weight.
  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
  • 256MB (100MB user available), 128MB RAM program memory
  • Micro SD compatible
  • 320 x 320 pixel (a FIRST in WinOS devices!) although 65k colours
  • Touchscreen
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • Comes in black
But just look at it. Its gorgeous.

Apple, another worth while mention, has launched the 3G variant of their take-the-world-by-storm iPhone. Available in 8Gb and 16Gb, black or white, this upgrade has caused queues and overnight sleepovers just like its predecessor did.

Decisions, desicions... with Christmas not long away, or Raya (however you see it) its time to carefully plan your next gadget of choice.
