Much to everyone’s surprise (and disappointment), Sony just unveiled that “next Xperia” phone teased on Facebook on Monday. The mid-range “miro” is far from the high-end super-phone we’ve been expecting from Sony, but it still looks like a pretty decent and stylish piece of technology.
We unfortunately can’t say the same about the Xperia tipo and tipo dual, a new smartphone duo unveiled by Sony that only has one (tiny) ace up its sleeve. As you probably have figured it out from its name, the tipo dual will come with dual-SIM support, being the first such device manufactured by the Japanese company.
However, the Xperia tipo dual will not allow the using of two [...]
If you’re in Europe right now, particularly in Ukraine, and you want to get hold of a dual-SIM phone running Android 4 ICS, well, luck is coming your way. Remember the dual-SIM HTC Desire V that we told you about a few days ago? It’s bound for the Ukrainian market in July.
With all the features that we’ve mentioned intact, the HTC Desire V will be priced at 3,800 grivnas (that’s around $470, in case you’re interested to know). Given its price, you’ve probably deduced that this HTC smartphone is a mid-range device. But don’t let this discourage you from checking it out. Aside from its dual-SIM capability, the HTC Desire V is [...]
You’d probably be hard-pressed to name any Android phones from Gigabyte, but the Taiwanese manufacturer has been actually trying to grab a bite of the Android smartphone market for quite some time and has its eyes set on becoming a bigger player in the future.
Gigabyte has just introduced two new Android phones at Computex 2012 in Taiwan: the entry-level GSmart G1342 and the rather high-end GSmart G1362.
The GSmart G1342 has a 3.5-inch display of 320 x 480 resolution. At the heart of the phone is a single-core Qualcomm 7225A processor, while the rest of the specs include a 1GB internal storage, 512MB RAM, 5MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash.
Well, color us surprised! We know that HTC is releasing the entry-level Desire C soon. It turns out there are two more Desire models that the Taiwanese phone maker is preparing to push into the market. Seemingly coming out of nowhere, the Desire C is set to receive the company of the HTC Desire V and Desire VC. What of their specs?
There’s definitely some good surprises waiting for those who lament HTC’s decision to pack the Desire C with a 600MHz processor (in 2012, really?). Both the HTC Desire V and Desire VC will ship with a single-core 1GHz processor, which puts it nearer to the One V’s territory in terms of performance. [...]
This is a huge surprise and a refreshing story for fans of HTC smartphones. An unannounced HTC phone was recently revealed in China, and reports suggest that it is a dual SIM phone which is quite unusual for HTC’s latest and greatest. To make matters more enticing, it appears to be very similar to HTC’s One S, as well. It is certainly an interesting choice for dual SIM-aholics, but what else does it have to offer?
The HTC T328w Wind looks a lot like the HTC One S, only a bit smaller since it features a 4 inch display (Super LCD WVGA ) which is quite nice. It is also running the great Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and comes with Sense 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 [...]

It’s hard to believe that Android, a mobile operating system purchased by Google back in 2005, achieved a quarter of the worldwide OS market at the end of 2010.

The four major ARM chip manufacturers are seeing the tablet revolution and smartphone growth bring great opportunities and the pressure that comes along with it. Nvidia is taking a major lead to start 2011 with their Tegra 2, which is the first dual core processor to make it to the market. It is being featured in a number of products so far. TI realizes this and is getting the news about its dual core OMAP 4 out at their earnings report.
With all four chip firms having new dual core options on the way, this is the perfect time to compare their offerings and see what they have in store.When we talk about OMAP, Snapdragon, [...]
As you probably know, I finally received my General Mobile DSTL1 the other day. It’s a pretty nice device with dual-SIM GSM support. I’m not going to post a real nitty-gritty detailed review right now, because I simply don’t have the time, but I have shot a pair of videos and a photo gallery (all after the jump) that, with some of my notes, will give you the important details.
For starters, I like the device overall. It’s fun, like most any Android phone. I find no problems with the resistive touchscreen display, in spite of the fact that everybody seems to whine about how much better capacitive [...]
