As you can see, there is another Apple iPhone lookalike on the market. Too bad, because we were all looking forward to new devices from Gigabyte. We were impressed when on Cebit 2007 Gigabyte announced VGA touch screen on a DVB TV capable device! As far as the S1200 goes here are the specs:

  • Processor: Qualcomm 528MHz
  • OS: Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
  • Memory: 128MB RAM, 256MB ROM (quite unimpressive but enough)
  • Dimensions: 105.5 x 52 x 11.4 millimeters
  • Screen: 3.1″ WVGA (480×800)
  • Battery: 1010mAh

One of the most expected premieres on MWC2009 was HTC’s Touch Pro 2. We did not like the naming but tilt mechanism is back. After the Touch Pro’s striking resemblance to Diamond (but with 1.8 times the thickness factor) we can say that this is the real successor to TyTN 2.

As far as the specs go, nothing is realy changed compared to the newer HTC models:

  • Procesor: Qualcomm® MSM7200A™, 528 MHz
  • OS: WM 6.1 Pro
  • Memory: 256/512MB RAM/ROM
  • Dimensions: 116 X 59.2 X 17.25 mm (4.57 X 2.33 X 0.68 inches), 175 grams (6.17 ounces)
  • Screen: 3.6″, WVGA (480×800), tilt
  • + FM, G-Sensor, microSD, QWERTY, 1500mAh

Touch Flo 3D now has the Calendar tab, and HTC assures us that with Conference room application and adjusted integrated mic and speaker, Touch Pro 2 is all that we’ll need on a meeting.

It seems that the Kanagawa Police Departement uses latest state of the art technology to fight crime. To try to catch a man who has stolen a car, they created a Mii – a Wii mugshot which suits the man’s description. It’s unknown whether they had any success with it, but at least it’s a good demonstration how multifunctional the Wii can be – in ways you’ve never expected it to be! Mii mugshot
