Ouch. The iPhone 4 and its “chemically strengthened” glass front is supposed to be scratch resistant. However the back of the new iPhone is clearly not. Take a look at the pic below and you’ll see a beautiful scratch on it. A few weeks ago another pic popped up showing the glass that is “20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic” shattered into pieces. I’ve a feeling that this little scratch will not deter the millions who are going to purchase it. (more…)

Here’s some good news for those located in the Montreal area! Already humming in Toronto, new entrant Public Mobile is officially set to go live in Montreal this Friday, June 25th. Combined in both cities Public currently has 66 stores and a couple monthly plans to choose from: $24 unlimited talk and a $40 unlimited talk and text.
Hopefully with Montreal launching we’ll be seeing some more device choices.
A few days ago Mobilicity changed their Unlimited Asia plan and removed a few countries from the list. Apparently the reason was that a massive amount of fraud was happening where people were renting their line out to call Pakistan.
With this news a new promo has been released where Mobilicity now offers $0.07 per minute calling to Pakistan. This can only be used for those who use “My Wallet” which is their pay-per-Use service. (more…)
About 2 months ago we let you know that the Nokia E72 was coming to TELUS and the date is almost here. This slim smartphone will officially be launching on July 11th (weird that it’s on a Sunday).
No official pricing is announced yet but specs are that it has a 2.4 inch display (resolution of 240 x 320), 5 megapixel camera, runs Symbian OS 3rd Edition, full QWERTY keyboard, a 600 mhz processor, 3.5 mm headset jack, 5 megapixel camera with a front-camera for video calling, auto-focus and flash, built-in GPS, WiFi.
What are your thoughts on pricing for this: $49.99 on a 3-year and no contract for $329.99?
Check out the hands-on video of the Nokia E72 below:
Isn’t this interesting. We only thought that Bell was going to be launching Samsung Wave… but thanks to one of reliable Rogers tipsters who let us know that we can expect to see it in their lineup also.
There’s no confirmed launch date or pricing but this operates on Samsung’s new open mobile platform called Bada. Specs: 3.3-inch Super AMOLED display (480 x 800 pixels), 1GHz Samsung processor, 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash and can take HD video, 3.5mm headset jack, can hold up to 32GB with a microSD card, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi.
Take a look at the video we captured last week with a Samsung Wave hands-on. We’ll update you soon in this.
Dang – this is a good sign! If you’ve wanted to get the Bold 9700 via Rogers and like the 3-year price plan than you should drop what you’re doing and head to the closest store. It looks like they have dropped the price again – this time a whopping $99.99 to hit the rock bottom price of $0.00.
This was originally released at $299.99 on a 3-year and has been going down ever since. The Rogers site still says $99 but clearly the pic says different.
You going to get this deal? (more…)
So clearly looking at this phone it’s not for everyone. The Nokia 2220 Slide has just popped up on the Canadian site so you can bet this is on its way. This will come in Pink and Graphite with the specs being: 1.8 inch screen (resolution of 128 x 160), 3.5 mm headset jack, VGA camera, FM radio, Bluetooth. Overall dimensions are 3.82 x 1.85 x .624 inches.
No word on what carrier or the price plans or if this is simply a mistake on the site. (more…)
Adobe has officially released Flash Player 10.1 for mobile but it seems we’ll have to wait a bit until upgrades are made by manufacturers. The first OS to get this will be with Android 2.2 but it’ll be available also on Symbian, Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7, BlackBerry smartphones, Meego, LiMo and Palm’s WebOS. Apple’s iPhone is missing from the list and will probably never show up.
David Wadhwani of Adobe said “We are thrilled that more than three million Flash designers and developers are now able to unleash their creativity on the world of smart phones, tablets, netbooks, televisions and other consumer electronics. The combined power of the leading rich media technology platform with millions of passionate creatives is sure to impact the world in ways we haven’t even imagined yet.” (more…)
