LG Releases U990 Viewty

LG mobile
In a slick three-inch design of sheer innovativeness, the LG u990 Viewty proves to be a formidable opponent in the touchscreen mobile phone arena.

On top of its array of messaging functions, the LG u990 demotes most phones to antique level with its whopping 5-megapixel camera on a 256k LCD display - and that’s merely at onset. The u990’s hi-end camera advances another step with its Schneider-Kreuznach flash lens framed with a jog wheel that enables users to manually control the zoom lens. This multi-functional jog wheel also doubles as a scroll operating as an alternative to the touchscreen.

The finger-touch-controlled phone is equipped with a 3G HSDPA capacity, MicroSD expansion capability (aside from its 90MB internal memory), and multimedia features of music, video playlist, and FM radio.

iPhoneBuzz: Apple iPhone 3G hands-on roundup

Several hands-on iPhone 3G reports from after the WWDC 2008 Keynote are out, and as you might expect they’re all saying pretty much the same thing. Despite the few extra millimeters thickness over the old iPhone, Apple’s newly slimmed edges disguise it well and the plastic - which is a concession to the numerous wireless radios packed inside - feels reasonable, though some question how scratch-resistant it will prove. Apple are claiming it’ll disguise wear better than the original. The buttons have been switched to metal for aesthetic, not practical reasons, and are sharper-edged. A few people have suggested that the new, white 16GB handset is particularly feminine, though that’s more personal choice than anything else.

Rumor: Nokia N79 and Vodafone Branded Nokia 5800 XpressMedia for Real?

You will never know what you can find in the big flickr picture collection. Today has “accidentally” found a list of unannounced model, including the Nokia N85 we reported earlier on.

Nokia N79
These are actually a good and clear leak, although there isn’t any description put together with the photos. The Nokia N79 looks like another 3G phone from Nokia, coms with a Carl Zeiss camera lens (the megapixel wording is too blur for us to determine). 2 flash LEDs will help you in low light photography, the camera lens is protected by a lens cover too.

The next leak is the familiar Nokia “tube”, the new S60 touch UI which is available in year 2009. It should be the first S60 touch UI phone from Nokia and will be featuring a wide screen with 16:9 ratio. It will support quad band network, come with built in bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, HSDPA/UTMS to give you a complete wireless package. The touch UI in this prototype do not support multitouch, but does have haptic feedback when you touch the screen.

This model is called Nokia 5800 XpressMedia according to flickr, you can also see a 3.2 megapixel camera at its back with auto focus capability. It will be on its way to Vodafone customer, probably for users in Europe.
