Nokia Lumia 710 & Lumia 800 is a Windows Phone 7!

Posted on 27 October 2011 by yizhan

New sets of Windows Phone 7 have been revealed  — the Nokia Lumia 710 and the Nokia Lumia 800 which basically looks almost the same as the Nokia N9.  Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has lastly put to rest several weeks of conjecture by unveiling Nokia’s initial batch of Windows Phones with the Nokia World conference. It’s been a long time arriving – news of a Nokia/Microsoft partnership first broke last February – but Nokia has finally debuted the Lumia 800 as well as the Lumia 710.

 

Nokia Lumia 800 specs:

  • 3.7″ AMOLED display @ 480×800 pixels (252ppi)
  • 1.4 GHz processor
  • Qualcomm MSM8255 chipset
  • 3D Graphics HW Accelerator
  • 512MB RAM
  • 16GB
  • HSDPA 14.4Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • 8MP autofocus camera, Carl Zeiss optics, flash
  • 720p video recording
  • FM Radio tuner
  • GPS w/ aGPS support
  • Li-Ion 1450mAh battery
  • Windows Phone 7.5 Mango

The Nokia Lumia 800 sports a curved 3.7-inch WVGA ClearBlack AMOLED display, has the same design as the Nokia N9, only with a smaller display. The Carl Zeiss optics assures us the quality of the camera will be the same as the N9.

 

Nokia Lumia 710 specs:

  • 3.7″ LCD display @ 480×800 pixels (252ppi)
  • 1.4 GHz processor
  • Qualcomm MSM8255 chipset
  • 3D Graphics HW Accelerator
  • 512MB RAM
  • 8GB
  • HSDPA 14.4Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • 5MP autofocus camera, flash
  • 720p video recording
  • FM Radio tuner
  • GPS w/ aGPS support
  • Li-Ion 1300mAh battery
  • Windows Phone 7.5 Mango

The Lumia 710 (formerly known as the Sabre) looks like the Nokia C7 or Nokia 701 and is probably targeted to the younger crowd. It does not have Carl Zeiss optics though but should be cheaper than the Lumia 800.

iPhone 4S Finally Announced !

Posted on 05 October 2011 by yizhan

Apple has finally make public its next-generation smartphone and, as imagine in previous leaks, hail it the iPhone 4S. It has the same looks in the outside and all the new advantage are located inside.

The iPhone 4s attributes a faster Apple Dual Core A5 chip that’s already featured on the iPad 2, an 8MP autofocus camera with 1080p video recording efficiency and a dual-core graphics that promises up 7x better performance.

The most intriguing part is that the iPhone 4S supports both GSM and CDMA networks. No more separate versions for different networks.




 

Battery life is impressive too ranging at 10 hours on video playback same as the iPad.

Well, for the price — it’s $199 for the 16GB, $299 for the 32GB and $399 for the 64GB.

Apple iPhone 4s specs:

  • 3.5″ display @ 960×640 pixels
  • Apple 1GHz A5 dual-core chip
  • 16GB, 32GB & 64GB internal storage
  • HSDPA, EVDO 14.4Mbps
  • WiFi 802.11b/g/n
  • GPS w/ aGPS
  • Gyroscope
  • 8MP camera with LED flash
  • 1080p video recording
  • 2nd front-facing camera
  • 2 mics w/ noise-canceling
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • iOS 5

 

Here in the Philippines, expect the iPhone 4S to be priced just like the same as the iPhone 4 — Php37k for the 16GB and Php42kfor the 32GB mark with the 64GB possibly pricing at Php47k . Pre-order starts on October 7 and release is on October 14 but that’s for the US. It’s still unknown when it will be release in the Philippines but Singapore is getting it on October 28.

It’s now also HSDPA capable  up to 14.4Mbps and EVDO-capable as well so it will definitely be able to maximize the HSPA+ networks of Globe and Smart but my guess is, it will still be exclusive to Globe again.

The bad news is, there is no iPhone 5.
