Sony Ericsson files for touchscreen keypad patent

Touch interface in mobile phones, that started as a new trend with the launch of Apple iPhone and LG Prada KE850 , is becoming mainstream.

LG will soon have 3 touchscreen models LG Prada, LG KU990 Viewty and LG KS20 on the market, Samsung will have two - Samsung P520 Armani and Vodafone Samsung F700v, Nokia confirmed that it’ll have something interesting with touchscreen next year, Motorola is rumored to be working on an advanced smartphone that may include touch interface.

That leaves only Sony Ericsson, among major cellphone vendors, that did not at least hint about it’s plans with touchscreen devices. That’s probably about to change, as recent Sony Ericsson patent application called “Programmable keypad“, indicates.


I can’t say that I’m very impressed with the results of Sony Ericsson efforts. It really reminds me about the idea behind Pantech Sky IM-200 and it certainly lacks the ingenuity Sony Ericsson demonstrated with PSP Phone, when they experimented turning cellphone into a gaming device.

But, hey, it’s only their first effort that become public, and I’m sure that Sony Ericsson will be able to come up with something much more interesting in the near future.

Nokia delivers simplicity and productivity with stylish new Nokia E51

Nokia today bolstered its Nokia Eseries portfolio of business devices with the introduction of the new Nokia E51 device. The Nokia E51 adds faster access and tighter integration to key applications, while maintaining the smartphone capabilities and stylish design that customers have come to expect in a Nokia Eseries device.


While expanding the rich functionality that business users require, Nokia continues to simplify the use of its business devices via the following:

- A home screen including user-selected icons to the most used applications
- One Touch keys with one-click access to key functionalities including email, contacts, calendar and the home screen
- Set-up wizards offering step-by-step guidance for setting up email accounts, configuring Internet calling and accessing wireless local area networks
- Integration with a wide range of business email solutions, including Nokia Intellisync Wireless Email and Mail for Exchange to communicate with Microsoft Exchange Server, and consumer email
- Streamlined email reading experience with easy access to attachments
- Dedicated Email key on the front cover, indicator light for new email, and a preview window to the latest email on the home screen to help keep up with email when on the move

Nokia E51 also extends business value to end users and businesses through its ability to integrate tightly with corporate telephony systems (PBX) through Nokia Mobile Unified Communications solutions such as Nokia Intellisync Call Connect for Cisco and Nokia Intellisync Call Connect for Alcatel. These solutions deliver desk phone calling features - such as extension dialing, hold, transfer and conferencing - to a single, mobile device. Companies can also reduce their international call charges by routing the call over the corporate IP networks.


In addition to increased features and functionality for business use, Nokia E51 lends itself well to personal use and offers a polished look for both business and personal use. The thin, stainless steel device is equipped with personal applications, including:

- FM radio, music and multimedia players
- 2 megapixel camera
- Nokia browser, serving as the gateway to a variety of Internet services including interoperability with Windows Live, providing mobile access to most popular Windows Live services including Hotmail, Messenger and Spaces, available through the Nokia Download! application
- Via the Download! application access to Yahoo Go! WidSets, and a number of travel, personal productivity and entertainment applications 

Nokia E51 will be globally available during the fourth quarter of 2007 for an unsubsidized retail price of approximately 350 EUR.

First Nokia 8900 pics surface

Eager Nokia fans might have created some really cool Nokia 8900 concepts. But now the time for the concepts is up and first pictures of what’s supposed to be the real Nokia 8900 are starting to trickle out on the net:


According to the Net rumor Nokia 8900 is supposed to become the new flagship for luxurious 8×00 Nokia phone line. It will to come equipped with 3.2 megapixel camera and 3G connectivity.

I’m not sure about the camera,whether it will be 3.2 or only 2 mpx. But if Nokia 8900 pictures above are real, the front camera that can be seen there is usually used for video calls, only available on 3G networks.

And that lends credence to the reports that Nokia 8900 will have 3G connectivity.

HTC TYTN II to support HSUPA?

We all know that HTC TYTN II (aka HTC Kaiser) has been announced a few weeks ago and will soon start shipping.

With the specs like 3 mpx camera, 2.8″ QVGA touchscreen, built-in GPS, HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity - HTC TYTN II is probably the most powerful Windows Mobile phone around.


But some of HTC fans were a bit disappointed with the HTC TYTN II official announcement.

You see, it was widely believed that HTC P4450 Kaiser, as the phone was known before, would be the first WM 6 device to support next generation HSUPA connectivity, with fast, up to 1.4 Mbps data upload capabilities. And this HSUPA connectivity was nowhere to be found in the official HTC TYTN 2 spec sheet.

Well, it seems that disappointment was a little premature. HTC TYTN II might support HSUPA, afterall.

This was revealed by French mobile operator Orange, which, during press conference announcing the roadmap of HSUPA upgrades, hinted that HTC TYTN II will be able to support higher data upload speeds as the network upgrades roll out in the first half of next year.

Directions Are a Cellphone Call Away


A new, free service launching in nine metropolitan areas sends travel directions to your cellphone via text message after using voice-recognition technology to determine your current location and where you'd like to go. [via The Wall Street Journal]

Dial DIR-ECT-IONS works as it sounds: You dial the word "directions" into a cellphone (347-328-4667) and speak the address, name of business chain or event to which you need directions. Step-by-step directions are instantly sent to your phone via SMS.

This isn't a substitute for phones that have GPS and can give real-time directions, and it may not be ideal for those who need visual cues, like turn-by-turn maps, but it is very convenient on the go and works on any basic cellphone."

Apple Chooses O2 as Exclusive Carrier for iPhone in UK

Apple and O2 announced today that O2 will be the exclusive UK carrier for Apple's iPhone when it makes its debut in the UK on November 9.


Apparently they picked the carrier that felt most like “home” which was O2. The ads are literally the same as the US ones, just interchange a bunch of US only stuff with UK stuff, for example the O2 logo, the NY Times for the Guardian, etc.

So far there is no 3G available. O2 has apparently partnered with someone for access to over 7500 Wi-Fi hotspots. There will be 3 different levels of plans, all of which will also have unlimited data, just like here in the US.

O2 also partnered with Carphone Warehouse for over 1300 locations that will be selling the iPhone. Cloud will be the Wi-Fi provider and it will be free to iPhone users, likely part of the service agreement.
