When it comes to advances in mobile phone technology, 2009 is shaping up to be a good year. With the announced release of at least 3 android phones, gadget enthusiasts will mark this year quite a memorable one indeed. HTC is the company that will usher this milestone. According to an HTC official, the mobile phone manufacturer will release at least 2 other Android phones aside from the HTC Magic. When this happens, there will be a total of at least four Android phones in the market, including HTC’s own T-Mobile G1.
While information on these Android phones have not been confirmed, the rest of the digital world is in a tizzy over the upcoming release of the Palm Pre. Palm, as you will remember, used to be the world’s leading smartphone manufacturer. But their throne was taken over by such giants as Apple and HTC. But with the release of the Palm Pre (early June in the US), Palm will once again be able to dance with the competition. It seems that the Palm Pre’s user interface and OS will redeem the company. If reports are to be believed, the Palm Pre’s user interface is similar to HTC’s TouchFLO interface. This means that it can give you better user experience as it can recognize many gestures and motions. The handset’s webOS is also proving to do a very good job.
Once users get their hands on the Palm Pre, we will know for sure if this device can prove to be the iPhone’s biggest rival. There will be many companies competing to offer the best mobile phone deals online. We feel the offers of a free handset with unlimited free landlines for the callers out there and Unlimited Texts for the texters are by far the best option.

Touchscreen mobile deals are great but not everyone likes to type on these devices’ soft keyboard. It can feel just a tad weird. For some people, nothing beats a real alpha-numeric keyboard as this is what all of us are used to. Thank heavens for the Samung Tocco Ultra. This phone is the answer to those who want a touchscreen device but still be able to type efficiently on a keyboard that we all know and love.
The integration of the alpha-numeric keyboard is just one of the great things about the Samsung Tocco Ultra. Another amazing thing about this handset is its appearance. Grey and red always look great together and Samsung has taken advantage of this fact. It’s AMOLED screen also offers clear and bright viewing experience. It’s better than an OLED display simply because it uses less power, which means that you’ll have longer battery life. Even if you use all applications all day long on the Samsung Tocco Ultra, you won’t need to turn to the charger for help. Details and Download…
It’s been quite some time since cameras were first introduced on phones, and now it’s difficult to find a handset that doesn’t have a camera built in. The quality on camera phones will rarely beat a digital camera of similar specification, because they need to squeeze just as much into a much smaller space. However, if you’re looking for that all in one device that means you can get your phone, camera and MP3 player into a 10x5x1.2 cm space, then getting a decent camera is essential. It’s particularly useful as well, as there’ll no longer be a need to stuff your camera into your pocket for special occasions and when you go out. If you’re looking to get a great camera phone, then here’s three of the best:
