Nokia wants to help you find your “Inner App”

Nokia Canada wants to help you find your “Inner App”. They’ve put together 8 questions that basically asks you how you use your Nokia device, then comes with your “app-e-type”.

Nokia does state at the bottom of the page in fine print that “Please note, this quiz is just for fun, and is not meant to be scientifically valid. While there is not such a thing as an “Inner App,” we’d like to think that there is and we’d appreciate it if you would play along with us.” (more…)

Samsung Messenger coming to TELUS… not so fast.

The Samsung Messenger was recently released by both Rogers and Bell… we mentioned it before but can now confirm that TELUS will be bringing the Messenger also.

No official launch date but we’ve been informed that it’ll be in July. What’s a bit unique about with TELUS vs. the others is that it’s being labeled by Samsung as a “Consumer” device, while the Bell and Rogers model has the “Business” stamp… same specs. However, it’s coming and it has Windows 6.5 plus a full QWERTY keyboard.

UPDATE: After posting this we got a call that said the Samsung Messenger was not going to be launched by TELUS, it was an error on their website. (more…)

Rogers: Android OS 2.1 is coming for X10 & Magic

Interested if your Rogers Android device will be upgraded soon? Rogers has posted a quick update regarding some devices that will be getting OS 2.1. “RogersMary” states that “I just confirmed that HTC will deliver 2.1 for Magic for testing end of June. Acer Liquid will release w/ 2.1. X10 2.1 in Fall.”

So we know that the Acer Liquid E comes with 2.1… for the Sony Xperia X10 this news somewhat narrows the dates to the September, October, November period. And one of the first devices to lead the revolution, the HTC Magic (now called the Magic+) went through an incredibly rough period with the urgent 911 fix. This seems to be getting upgraded to 2.1 in June, but no confirmation that it’s actually coming as it’s only going for “testing”. (more…)


Name change: TELUS now releasing HTC Desire?

Dazed and confused… A few weeks ago we got an internal screenshot that showed TELUS will be bringing on something called the HTC Triumph. This was apparently a re-branded name for the Android-powered HTC Desire. Thanks to our tipster who originally sent us the images has now sent us a new pic that shows that TELUS has updated their inventory with the original name of HTC Desire.

This is still targeted to be released sometime in July and runs Android OS 2.1, but with talk of being updated to 2.2 soon.

(Thanks tipster!)
