Sprint launching Nexus S 4G, HTC EVO 3D and EVO View Tablet at CTIA?

Rumors hint about Sprint planning to launch three new devices: Nexus S 4G, HTC EVO 3D and EVO View, at the CTIA event which is going to be held at the end of March.  Sources say that Sprint is getting ready to kick-off at the event with the launch of these new 4G devices.

The first one is the Nexus S 4G from Samsung. As the name suggests, this might be the next version of the Nexus S, equipped with 4G radios. So the new version of Nexus S can be expected with some WiMAX and CDMA capabilities.

The next device, the HTC EVO 3D, is another 3D phone which might be launched to keep up with the latest trend of 3D capable devices and especially to take on the LG Optimus 3D. So this phone might be the successor of HTC EVO 4G combined with 3D capabilities.

The last device is the HTC EVO View, a CDMA version of the Flyer tablet which was introduced at MWC 2011.

So get ready to experience the 4G power and do watch this space for more updates.

Reminder: Bring Dropbox to your Symbian Device in 5 easy Steps!

Lately I’ve seen a lot of people complaining about the lack of a dedicated Dropbox Application for Symbian. Sure it would be nice to have one, as the apps on both, Android and iOS are really well done. but it seems most people don’t know that you can have a much much better way to browse your files on Symbian than the mobile web app. What better than having Dropbox integrated directly into the Filemanager? It’s easy, it’s free (if you have a free Dropbox account) and its very fast to setup! And here’s how its done: Continue reading “Reminder: Bring Dropbox to your Symbian Device in 5 easy Steps!”

Samsung Galaxy 5 Review: The Small Android Your Non-Geeky Friends Will Love

The story with Android has been quite similar these last few years: manufacturers seem to always be on the run to deliver bigger, faster, better, devices with more specs inside than anyone can humanly memorize. Dual-Core processors, 4.3″ screens, 3D displays, HD video recording… are all interesting, except they target what? maybe 5-10% of the users. The rest, well, they get very confused and somewhat overwhelmed with these features. They want a phone, that’s it. Maybe they want Facebook in there, a camera of sorts, and email would be a nice plus. For those, the Samsung Galaxy 5 is perfect.

The Galaxy 5 is the smartphone brother of the iconic Samsung Corby, a device with a simple design, dedicated keys for calls, quite limited features in terms of camera and other hardware, but it packs Android Eclair 2.1 instead of Samsung’s dumbphone OS. But the question is does this mix work?

Audioboo Comes To The Ovi Store Worldwide

Almost a year ago, I discovered the joys of using Audioboo for covering live events on Twitter. See, Audioboo is kind of the audio version of Twitpic for Twitter. You get 5 minutes of audio recording, and you can set that to be automatically sent to Twitter with a link to listen to the Boo. Quite simple, and when you want to get live impressions of people, it works wonderfully well. Except that there wasn’t a version for Symbian before and I had to use my iPod Touch and wait until I had WiFi around to upload my Boos, which defeated the purpose of its instantaneous approach.

Well, that problem is now solved as Audioboo has recently been launched in the Ovi Store, and after a few days of being limited to the UK only, is now available worldwide.
