Windows Phone 7 Series Is Really, Really Beautiful

Sure, none of us has used it yet, but the same was true when Apple first demo’d the iPhone.

And if the above isn’t enough, there’s a longer hands-on […]

Today in Mobiles: August 14, 2008

Samsung E200 Eco This new handset has a case made entirely from bioplastic, which is derived from corn. Use of bioplastic eliminates harmful substances from the manufacturing process & thus the environment (ultimately) like lead, cadmium and mercury.

Ericsson, Sony Ericsson to Star in Quantum of Solace, Your Spy Fantasies

“Right! Now listen up, double-0-7, because this mobile has one or two rather special features!” Ahh, he may be gone, but Desmond Llewelyn will never be forgotten as the perpetually-mistrusting Q, now, will he?
