T-Mobile Basically Giving Smartphones Away at Mobile World Congress 2011

Take a peek here as T-Mobile readies a pack of "many" smartphone that'll be available for purchase under $100USD, and most of them Android phones. Chief Executive Philipp Humm noted in an interview that he recognizes the giants like AT&T and Verizon dominate the high end of the market with devices like the Droid and the iPhone, so he's gonna go right ahead and take the rest.

Samsung Aims at 60 Million in 2011, Will Reveal New Galaxy S at WMC

Sixty million what, you may ask? Sixty million smartphones, of course. Seem like a large number to you? It is. This year they sold right around one third of that, Shin Jong-kyun, the head of Samsung’s mobile business division saying the following: "I think we did better than our previous goal of selling 270 million mobile phones in 2010. The 20 million smartphones sold gives us a foundation to build on in the premium segment too." He told this to Korea Times on the sidelines of CES 2011. He went on to note that they'll aim at strengthening their positions in regions such as Southeast Asia, China, and Central and South Ameria.

Is This The Motorola Zeppelin?

This is one of the most rumored Motorola phones to date. The initial rumors stated that it will have a 3.7" WVGA display, 5 megapixel camera, 720p HD video, and 550 MHz processor. Which turned out not to be completely true but that’s how some rumors turn out right? Since then reports have been circulating that Motorola has indeed verified that this phone is coming and here is the real picture of it.

E28 demo working Android handset at Mobile World Congress 2008

You may not have heard of E28, but they have something particularly rare on show at the Mobile World Congress: a current, off-the-shelf handset that’s running Google’s Android cellphone platform. I stopped by to shoot some video and find out exactly how well the Android OS works, away from reference designs and hardware test-beds; remember, this is basically E28’s E2831 quadband GSM smartphone, with WiFi, a 2.2-inch QVGA touchscreen and 1.3-megapixel camera, entirely stock aside from the OS. The good news? Android works pretty damn well indeed.

What makes this particularly interesting is the specs of the E2831: it uses a relatively old OMAP TI 730 chipset, running at just 200MHz, and has a mere 64MB RAM and 64MB ROM. Android runs with no modifications, and the E28 team were even able to download applications coded for the platform from the internet and install them directly to the handset. This, then, is some of that unlocked, open-source simplicity we were promised when the platform was first announced. [youtube][/youtube]
