HTC pushes a Windows Phone through FCC, Mango launch close at hand?

Phones approved by the FCC are seldom so upfront about the OS they run on, but HTC decided to go against the status quo in its latest filing to the government agency. A quick perusal of the FCC filings show a handset tested for 850 / 1900 GSM — standard 2G bands for AT&T and T-Mobile — and no WCDMA frequencies in the US. There’s one detail in the docs, however, that stands out like a sore thumb: this device, the HTC PI39110, is listed as a Windows Phone. What’s more, the paperwork also mentions the inclusion of a “WiFi hotspot,” which likely is the mobile hotspot feature confirmed to be supported by Mango. HTC hasn’t announced any devices that run on the updated OS yet, but this particular gem could very well be the long-rumored Eternity. While it probably won’t make its way to the US, this is at least a solid indicator that Windows Phone 7.5 is coming soon to more parts of the globe.

HTC: Droid Incredible & Thunderbolt to Get Official Gingerbread in September

We’ve just gotten word from HTC via a Facebook announcement that the Droid Incredible and HTC Thunderbolt will both be receiving some Gingerbread love in September. That’s literally all we know at this point, but at least HTC is trying to get the latest and greatest Android versions to their devices. No word on exactly when they’ll be getting the update, or if it will include Sense 3.0 or any other bells and whistles, but we’ll do some digging.

Keep in mind that September 1st is tomorrow, so this update can’t be too far off. So who has an Incredible or Thunderbolt? Are you excited to finally be getting some 2.3 on your device? Drop a comment below!

9MP Photo From the Motorola Dinara

Take a look at the photo to the left, it’s a beauty isn’t it? Just look at the detail and the crisp, contrasting colours…Ok so whoever took this photo could of chosen a more interesting subject, but at least the photos statistics are a little more intriguing. It’s a 4000 x 2248 picture uploaded by the unannounced Motorola Dinara. This works out at just under 9MP making the Dinara’s rumoured 13MP camera all the more believable.  Now we’ve mentioned the Dinara before, but this is the first tangible evidence of it actually existing. Here’s a refresher on the specs for you all:

  • Android 2.3
  • 1GB RAM
  • TI processor
  • VGA (640×480) front facing camera
  • HD screen (likely 1280×720) and larger than the Droid Bionic

The device is rumoured to be heading to Verizon AT&T this winter, so it’s also likely to have LTE  on board. Let us know what you think of the device (and that fantastic photo) in the comments below.

UPDATE: The Dinara is in fact likely to be heading to AT&T not Verizon as previously written, typing error on my part there, sorry guys!

Bold 9780 letters instead of numbers when typing

Hi Experts

I have got a BB bold 9780 ,,,,when I try to send an SMS to a phone number that isn’t in my " Contacts" (address book) ,,,,the BlackBerry converts this phone numbers to letters.

For instance this phone number +442072997080 isn’t save in my address book.

If I type in : +442072997080 the BlackBerry converts it to : +sse0zeccz0x0 as a subsequent the text message (SMS) fails to be sent with the below error :

Quote:

Sys Alert
Transaction failed – 1 invalid address – 07307- You have not been charged for the invalid address


If I save that phone number in my "Contacts" I have no problem to send the SMS.

How can I configure the BlackBerry bold 9780 not to convert the digits to letter to avoid this problem

Regards

Toyota smashes EV record on Nurburgring, speed rivals gas-powered cars (video)

Last week, Toyota’s racing team set out to break the current EV record on the Nordschleife track, part of Germany’s infamous Nürburgring — and they’ve done it, clocking a swift 7:47.79 seconds with the P001 electric racing car. The Peugeot EX1 EV’s previous 9:01.338 record seems like a distant memory as the new contender shaved more than a minute off the time, giving even gasoline-powered vehicles a run for their money. Toyota’s car is no slouch as it can reach 260km/h (174mph), with a track time that rivals the Radical SR8 LM’s record breaking time of 6:48. Beating its predicted goal of eight minutes, Toyota hopes the victory will bring new awareness to electric racing and perhaps to help sell custom race cars in the future — yes, you too might be able to cop a car with the same guts (albeit different body and chassis) as a Radical Sportscar some day. Check out the full PR after the jump.

Sprint Confirms ETF Rising to $350 for ‘Advanced Devices’

Sprint confirmed with PhoneScoop today that the early termination fee for Android phones and tablets will soon rise from 0 to 0. According to an official statement emailed to the mobile tech blog, the new pro-rated policy will take effect on September 9th and will apply to ‘advanced devices’ which includes smart phones, tablets, notebooks, and netbooks. The actual ETF will depend on how much time you have left on your contract should you wish to cancel early. This news means that everyone who buys an Epic 4G Touch is subject to the new rules as the Galaxy S II series phone lands one week after the new policy.

Gmail calls

Xperia Arc S Announced Ahead of IFA 2011, Comes With 1.4GHz CPU


Sony Ericsson rushed to announce a new Xperia model in the IFA 2011 preview event: SE Xperia Arc S. This relative to one of the thinnest smartphones out there packs a 1.4GHz CPU and should hit the market in October, if everything goes well. The details are pretty scarce right now, but in the following days we’ll most likely get more.

Xperia Arc S comes with a 4.2 inch LED screen, Sony’s Reality Display screen and the Snapdragon CPU mentioned above. There’s also an 8.1 megapixel camera at the back and the ability to take 2D panorama photos. Also, the new feature that turns 2D into 3D images is available, just like on the other 2011 Xperia models.

HDMI out is also available, allowing you to view the 3D content on Bravia TVs. Xperia Arc S will ship with Sony’s Music Unlimited, Video Unlimited and other associated services. This Arc follow-up is 25% faster than its predecessor and it becomes the most powerful Xperia unit yet. Based on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, this phone doesn’t have a pricing yet, but we’ll learn more in the following days at IFA 2011.

HTC Runnymede Confirmed to Pack a 4.7 Inch Display, Beats Audio Technology


After the rumors regarding HTC Eternity and its huge 4.7 inch display, now comes another smartphone with the same diagonal size: HTC Runnymede. While the Eternity has been dismissed as having such a large screen, the Runnymede is pretty surely packing such a display.

Last we heard, this handset showed up in EXIF data for a photo available on a photo sharing website. HTC Runnymede runs Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, it’s under 10mm thick, comes with Sense 3.5 coupled with Android and also bundled Beats headphones, not earphones. Here’s a presumed specifications list:

  • Display: 4.7 inch, 480 x 800 pixels
  • CPU: 1.5GHz, single core, MSM8255
  • Memory: 768MB RAM, 16GB internal storage
  • Camera: 8MP, 720p video capture, dual flash, 1.3MP front cam
  • Connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth, DLNA, 3G

Runnymede will hit the market in time for the holidays and the folks of AndroidGuys have found an even more complete specs list for the handset, with 14.4Mbps connectivity attached, a Super LCD display, 1600 mAh battery, gyroscope and dust proof case. There’s also a 32GB model scheduled for the future…

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S hands-on (video)

The only way you missed Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Arc S at today’s IFA press conference, is if the slim handset happened to be turned sideways at the time. The 4.2-inch phone was the one of the bigger announcements at the event, sporting a 1.4GHz processor, an 8.1 megapixel camera, a Reality Display and the ability to convert 2D images into 3D. Like the new Walkman, however, Sony seemed largely interested in showing off the handset’s ability to transfer content onto its line of Bravia displays. Check out a brief hands-on video with the new Arc after the break.
