Phones hit the road with Garmin Nuviphone

Garmin joined the mobile market in another perspective, by launching a mobile phone which is mostly a GPS than anything else. Such a phone would be mostly useful as a carphone.

The Garmin Nuviphone has the following features:

Sony Ericsson P5i - rumour or true smartphone?

The long-rumoured Sony Ericsson smartphone might be here sooner than expected. After a photoshop image trying to sketch the phone, now we can see something maybe more real, or maybe it's another photoshopped image.

Panasonic to add plasma displays to mobile phones

From LCD to OLED, now it's plasma's turn. Panasonic surely makes the best plasma TVs in the world, even I own one. To see a display with great contrast and resolution on a mobile phone is something we certainly need nowadays, and it would be a great addition to the upcoming touchscreen-enable cellphones, that of course, if it is possible to enable touchscreen-plasma displays.

Videocon to buy Motorola's Phone Business?

Well, we have news everywhere about India's companies trying to buy this and that. The lastest one was Tata Motors acquiring Ford, Jaguar and Land Rover.

But this one, is different. You may ask why...but it is simple to answer: Motorola was separating the mobile phones' business from the big company making a Spin-off. But as I have said to you, a spin-off is always seen with good eyes from the stock holders, but when comes the reports from the best analysts we can have a better dimension of what could be happening and if it would be good or not. As we saw from my last post, this Spin-Off could be a complete disaster.

But today, a company that I have never heard before, named Videocon, is intended to buy Motorola's phone business. Now, this is better than a spin-off, this is better than anything (at least for the stock holders), because it makes the market move, and UP (for the two companies)

But, when Motorola said that they weren't interested in "this", the vitality of this session isn't being too good to Motorola. But in the other hand Videocon was bumping on the last Indian session.

You can see a nice report of Videocon right here, and quotes from Motorola here.

Here is the graph from today, just to show that the market isn't too interested in these things, at this time. Anyway, we might not have yet reached the climax (just maybe......)

Samsung's own Touch UI is Instinct UI

Samsung rarely displays S60 phones, and S60 Touch UI might not be a success on their side, so this time they opted for Instinct UI.
From the video, the device looks rather small, or maybe Chris Ziegler from Engadget has gigantic fingers.

What we can clearly see is the web browser, and the usual finger-scrolling that we saw in devices such as Apple iPhone and Nokia N800. The main options on the sides are the Zoom buttons, but what I really wanted to see is the keyboard, but I believe we will be in for more videos and adverts once it launches itself into the market.

Bling bling - Louis Vuitton teaches them how to shine

In specifications terms, the Louis V2 isn't the king of them all, but when it comes to bling, this phone shines the whole day. No 3G, a simple 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, microSD slot, and MP3 playback are the only functions. Besides being a probable limited edition, the phone is only Dual-Band. Believe it or not, it's not a Louis Vuitton, it's a China phone.

Nokia tackles the music market with one more Music Store

Offering local based online shop is a good initiative, when you consider that you can download any local and international track on the move, and Nokia is making use of that at it fullest, with the launch of the new Nokia Music Store of Ireland.

Nokia is providing over 2,5 million tracks from both Irish and International artists, but the prices seem quite strange, and maybe exaggerated: 1 Euro for each individual track, and 10 Euros for a monthly subscription fee for music streaming to PC. With these kinds of prices, more people will opt for illegal P2P downloads or the Apple iTunes music store.
