Got this teaser from the Smart Communications Facebook page. So, it looks like Smart is bringing in the Huawei Ideos smartphones to the Philippines. Unfortunately, the Android phone is not the newer phone units. If my memory serves me right, the Huawei Ideos Android phone is the first Android phone released by Huawei as early as September 2010.
Received this PR material announcing the availability of RIM’s BlackBerry Bold 9780. Of course, it’s an updated version of the BlackBerry Bold 9700. In fact, just by looking at the official photos of the BlackBerry Bold 9780, I could see its striking resemblance to the Bold 9700. Anyway, key features of the BlackBerry Bold 9780 is of course the fact that it runs BlackBerry OS 6.0. The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is available now from various mobile telcos. Full PR after the break.
The Ideos X5 aka U880 Android phone has just landed on my desk and I’ve been using it for a couple of hours now. This Android-powered phone was just introduced during the CES 2011 and was also officially launched via a webcast earlier this month. I attended the web launch and was quite impressed by this Android phone. So, I’m sharing with you some unboxing photos of the Ideos X5 Android phone and a full review will follow as soon as I put this smartphone to rigorous testing in the coming days.
Ouch! I was monitoring the App Store since this morning and I wasn’t expecting that it would reach the 10 billion mark this fast. Sayang. Apple just announced that there are now 10 billion apps downloaded from the app store. The person who downloaded the 10 billionth app and the app downloaded will be announced later. That person will receive $10,000 worth of iTunes Gift Card.
Radio DJ, TV Host, Tech Junkie and whatever you may want to call him – DJ Mo Twister just made one of his brilliant idea into fruition. What is it? A nightly podcast with him, a doctor and a guest answering various questions (alright, predominantly S-E-X questions). The podcast went live a couple of two nights ago with the controversial Hayden Kho as the first ever guest. Yup, Hayden de-virginized Mo’s podcast (whew!).
Just before Christmas, I ordered the red iPod Nano 6th Gen from the Philippines Apple Online Store. I was hoping to receive the iPod Nano just in time for Christmas Day since it was a gift for my wife. In case you’re not aware, the iPod Nano red is an Apple Store Exclusive – meaning you can buy it from your regular Apple Store. To cut the long story short, I didn’t receive the said iPod Nano in time. Guess when I got it? Last Friday, January 7. Once again, the problem was something about getting cleared from Customs. But anyway, that’s another story and I’d rather not blog about it anymore.
Here’s to open up this year’s online contest/gig for all of you fellow Pinoy tekkies. I know how much were are fond of joining these contests hoping to at least snag one of those cool gadgets. Sony Philippines and Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (CBTL) have joined forces to give CBTL customers a chance to have the Sony VAIO experience while inside CBTL shops.
