clip image002 Motorola DROID R2 D2 Coming On September 30, Riding On Verizon

Recall Motorola going the George Lucas’ way with a special release of their Android based phone? Well if you had been one of those waiting for the R2-D2 Droid from Motorola then wait no more as Verizon hints at the device will be in stores on September 30. I just wonder if this release would encourage an epic collection of Star Wars’ collection.

The device will be the second generation of the DROID 2 with an R2-D2 touch to it. It will also boast an updated 1.2 GHz processor compared to the 750MHz that powered the DROID 2. Other than looks of the R2-D2 it would also have the R2-D2 ringtone and sounds for notifications, a clock widget, four live wallpapers and a bonus binoculars app. Let me just clarify, that the 1.2GHz processor is not yet confirmed, which if not true will be quite a disappointment. I mean if looks are all that matter, they can even try to turn Barbie into a Doll Mobile?

image thumb64 Its Really Cool To Pee In Your Pants! Nokia Android War Goes A Video Ahead

A day or two back Nokia’s outgoing head, Anssi Vanjoki had great thoughts to share on the Android Platform. Honestly I was disappointed, more than I was when Steve Jobs acted like a whiner and blamed ever phone in the universe having the Antennagate issue. The respectable head, while talking to Financial Times was of the opinion that people using Android are like Finnish boys who pee in their pants to keep themselves in the cold Finnish winters. How sick! How irresponsible and downright lame!

Well Google has been quite, which I think is good as Google doesn’t need to stoop to such low level. But folks at TechCrunch shared a video by Eclectic Method which takes the Nokia VS Android battle … a video forward. Enjoy!

image thumb60 Pictures Of Windows Phone 7 HTC HD7 / HD3 Leaked

My post yesterday on the Windows Phone 7 and its comparison with the iPhone 4 sounded a bit too biased. I agree on that opinion from the couple of commentators. The primary reason was the Windows Phone 7 looked dull on that LG by all means and I won’t take back my opinion on that. However there is better hardware coming from HTC and we have got pictures of those.

image thumb45 Transform Any Screen Into A Touchscreen With Nokia Plug And Touch

Nokia has some great concepts and lets not hammer them for losing out in the smartphone battle with the iPhone and Google Android OS. Nokia recently released three new models of its smartphones, the Nokia E7, C7 and the C6 running on the Symbian 3 and the Nokia N8 a couple of days back. All those look promising, but this latest video from the Nokia World has impressed me more than anything else.

image thumb30 We Will Be Back! Nokia Adopts The Spartan Spirit To Beat iPhone, Android.. Hopefully

Nokia is back… once again with a series of smartphones set to hit the markets by Christmas. I think the cell phone manufacturing goliath might very well be anticipating to give the likes of Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Android phones and the BlackBerry smartphones. The entire Nokia management is confident about Symbian 3 taking its mobile devices to the next level.

The new devices set to be released are the E7, C6 and C7 as well as the Nokia N8. And be sure that the cell phone maker crashed heavily on Apple, with Steve Job’s allegations of the Nokia devices having the Antennagate issue as well, just like the iPhone 4. First up with Apple shamelessly stealing the Nokia Phrase Connecting People and using it to market their own iPhone. That was absolutely lame of Apple in the first place. The smartest folks at Apple can design a revolutionary hardware and a mobile operating system but can’t create their own slogan and catchy phrases.

image thumb143 Sorry Steve, Unlike iPhone 4, Samsung Omnia 2 Doesn’t Have Antennagate Issue

I bet everyone has seen politicians playing the blame-game in every state instead of correcting their wrongs. And I bet this is common in other sectors too. Well only recently the great Steve jobs demonstrated that by going cheap and finding the antenna issues on other smartphones, rather trying to accept and promising to correct the issue on the iPhone 4.

image thumb117 Microsoft Goes The Android, Apple Way. Windows Phone 7 SDK Coming In September

The web is abuzz with the coming of the promised Windows Phone 7, though I guess I will never be a fan of the mobile operating system from Microsoft, even if they offered me numerous Xbox 360 titles on the Windows Phone 7. Why? Well the major reason being I doubt the availability of apps, but that might just change a bit, since the firm is planning to released the SDK for the Windows Phone 7. This would be coming to us by 16 September.

So will we be seeing the coming of a lot of apps before holidays? If that happens, the Windows Phone 7 might just have something worth the money for those who expect something from Microsoft’s OS.
