Nokia N900 not-phone hits next week

The N900, Nokia’s latest ‘mobile computer’ with Maemo software arrives next week for a wallet-busting US$815 (Dhs3,000). Its got a great 5MP camera, ultra-fast processor and 32GB in-built memory, but that’s not the point. This isn’t a phone people, it’s a shape shifting psychotic mobile computer. And here’s proof in the ad above.

Samsung Android mobile hits the UAE (at last)

GT-I7500_01_1

And here it is, the first Android mobile to be officially released in the region. Its been a long time coming, but a quick look at what Samsung’s got to offer and it seems worth the wait. The I7500 packs a 3.2in AMOLED touchscreen, 5MP camera with power LED flash, Wi-Fi, GPS and it runs Android, of course. Samsung seems pretty chuffed with itself, and we should have a model in our hands very soon. Step aside HTC, you had your chance.

Samsung Jet: more TouchWiz shenanigans

And this is it – the phone Samsung mercilessly teased us with for weeks. Its got a super-fast 800MHz processor, 3.1in AMOLED screen, 5MP camera and runs TouchWiz 2.0. We’ve already had a bit of a play with the handset, with the slick touchscreen and responsive OS (no doubt thanks to a faster processor) by far its best features. For more on the mobile, make sure to pick up next month’s magazine.

But really Sammy, another TouchWiz phone? When you’ve been dangling the Android-running I7500 in our drooling faces for over a month now. When’s that one coming out? Can it be soon, please?

Nokia N97 feels the heat in Dubai

Nokia’s latest N-series mobile has finally landed on the sunny shores of Dubai. We’ve played with it before, but we’re still rather impressed with this sleek little slider. It’s got a 5MP camera, HSDPA, A-GPS and up to 48GB of storage to play with, not to mention a full QWERTY revealed via sumptuous tilting mechanism. Expect to find it in stores early next week, for around US$850.

This marks the first release of the summer smartphone bonanza – with the Palm Pre launching in the US tomorrow, a new iPhone on the horizon, and HTC and Samsung both teasing big announcements. Like a Dubai summer, the mobile market is going to get very hot and sticky.

With more in the pipeline, the I7500 is Samsung’s first handset to run Google’s Android operating system. Only 11.9mm thick (a tad thinner than the HTC Magic) its got a gorgeous 3.2in AMOLED screen and 5MP camera with LED flash. It packs 8GB of internal storage, with microSD support up to 32GB (that’s 40GB!), and works with HSDPA, Wi-Fi and GPS. It will be available in major European countries from June this year, and expect to shell out around US$400 for one.
