At the Mobile World Congress 2009, Microsoft unveiled “Windows phones” based on Windows Mobile 6.5 OS. In addition to the new user interface and a richer browsing experience, the Windows phones also feature two new services: My Phone and Windows Marketplace for Mobile.
The new Windows Mobile 6.5 home screen keeps people up-to-date on important information by providing a dashboard-like experience to items such as new e-mails, texts, missed calls and calendar appointments. It also includes an improved touch-screen interface, making it easy to take action with a finger.
Well We all know .. that the Google phone is not as sexy as the iPhone .. But since some of you like pictures .. We bring to you an Exclusive Photo Gallery featuring the Google Phone a.ka. HTC G1 , Apple iPhone and the mighty Nokia E71
For all you HTC TOUCH WIN MO fans in India, here is some sweet news for your ears. HTC 8282 Touch HD, the WinMo Monster is available through select retails (your favorite Mobile Showrooms in India).It retails for close to a whooping 42k INR. And it’s worth it for its mere 3.8 HD screen. Wow, and it’s got awesome Multimedia capabilities as well.
As we had predicted before , the HTC G1 which we unboxed earlier is coming soon to India.
HTC might bundle the handset with an Airtel Connection like RIM does for BlackBerry. HTC also offers a few phones exclusively on Airtel. Univercell shows this phone as coming soon and its priced at Rs.25000 or 500 USD
This is an interesting price point as iPhone 3G , Omnia and Xperia are all more costly than G1
G1 is definitely not a phone you would buy for its looks .. But still these are the phones which are making the news these days .
Would you buy the G1 for 25000 ?
Amongst all eagerly awaited Windows Mobile devices, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 and the HTC Touch HD take the crown as the most interesting, innovative and promising handsets. Luckily, both of them run a cool layer on top of Windows Mobile 6 to avoid users frequent interaction with that horrible and outdated interface. The Xperia X1 has the 9 panels system and the Touch HD has the TouchFLO 3D, both of which allow for a huge set of shortcuts to different Windows Mobile functions, in a finger-friendly designed interface.
