Dual SIM Motorola EX115 and EX128 hitting Europe in October

This fall, Motorola will be launching its first dual SIM phone, actually two them, in Europe. The two models are Motorola EX115 and EX128 and according to European retailer Germanos they will hit the stores on October 18th.

Pre-orders have already started, but that doesn’t mean we have all the details. We know the EX128 is an all-touchscreen device that will cost about 120 EUR ($150), while the EX115 rocks a BlackBerry-like form factor with full QWERTY keyboard. Its price is 95 EUR (about $120).

Obviously, these are not smartphones as they would definitely cost more. Moreover, I would assume that in addition to Europe, both phones will also be sold in other parts of the world, most likely in emerging markets.

Finally, we’ve heard rumored specs of the Moto EX115. Apparently, it will come with GPRS data, 3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1 and 3.5mm headset jack. As soon as we hear something new, we’ll let you know…

T-Mobile G2 is official – First HSPA+ phone, Android 2.2

Well, it’s not that surprising, but T-Mobile officially announced the G2 Android phone and this baby rocks HSPA+ speeds.

The device, of course, is the followup to the world’s first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1. It will launch with Android 2.2 and from the looks of the press release, it appears that it will be stock Android (Like the original, HTC makes the T-Mobile G2).

The T-Mobile G2 is Google to the gills, as it will come with Quick Keys to Google services like Google Voice Actions, Google Maps and other software from the search giant.

Perhaps more importantly, this is the first device that can access the T-Mobile HSPA+ 3G network. T-Mobile was a joke in mobile data services a few years ago but its HSPA+ 3G network is nothing to sneeze at – this offers 21 Mbps (that’s theoretical, look for about 14 Mbps or so in optimal conditions with the T-Mobile G2).

As expected, the T-Mobile G2 will come with the Snapdragon MSM7230 mobile processor with a 800 MHz CPU. I know devices like the Sprint EVO 4G and the Droid X have seemingly made a 1 GHz processor seem like the standard but numbers aren’t everything, as we’ll be curious to see how a stock version of the Android 2.2 runs on some optimized hardware.

Look for a 3.7-inch display but there’s no concrete word if it’s AMOLED or Sony’s Super LCD. It will also have a 5-megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video, a pre-installed 8 GB memory with support for up to 32 GB, GPS, Bluetooth and all the goodies you expect from a device of this class.

“One of the advantages of an open platform is the opportunity for developers to create rich mobile experiences and seamlessly get those experiences into the hands of consumers,” said Andy Rubin, vice president, engineering, Google, in a prepared statement. “From new services, such as Voice Actions, to mobile applications, developer-led Android innovation is flourishing. On Android Market alone, the number of applications available to consumers has grown from just 50 applications two years ago to more than 80,000 applications today.”

The T-Mobile G2 will be available for preorder to Magenta customers “later this month.” No word on pricing or release date but I’d bet on a $200 subsidized price with a new contract and a release date by late September.

With stellar Android devices like the EVO 4G, Droid X and the Samsung Galaxy lineup, our resident Android head Blake asked if the T-Mobile G2 can compete. What do you think, friends.

After much of hype and leaks throughout the last year at IFA, LG has finally come forward and announced their new upcoming mobile. LG has code named their phone LG GW910 Optimus 7 It is their first phone to run on much hyped Windows 7. Apparently LG and Microsoft are going to be long term business partners in this aspect of business and we can expect to see a lot more improvement in their products and services on the course of the time they go hand in hand.

We can assume, this is an early attempt by software giant Microsoft to come up with something promising and competitive enough, they are asserting enough energies and money over their technology as their previous attempts at getting into mobile phones industry had been thrashed. Earlier, when phone was finally displayed in a conference at Berlin, it was highly appreciated for its sleek look and high end features. Company has spoken about most of its features, however, we are still unaware of phone’s dimensions and actual weight. All these missing specs along with battery talk time and stand by time, shall eventually be revealed in couple of days time.

Optimus 7 Specifications

Some of most important details on features of this phone has been made public. Most importantly its a first Windows 7 handset by LG. Optimus 7, previously known as LG Panther, which posses DLNA capabilities, is one of its kind, it comes with 720 pixel video, which you can plug into your Tv’ sets and watch streaming. Other specifications include its 2G (GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900) and 3G (HSDPA) capability, which doesn’t make it unique, but lets it compete in this cut throat competition of new mobile phones. GW910 is an AMOLED capacitive touchscreen set with 480 x 800 pixels resolution and has 3.5 inches display.

This smartphone is loaded with nice proximity sensor, which can auto turn-off the device, this set with QWERTY keyboard makes it favorable to masses, as it is one of the better keypad solution out there. For now, this phone is set to be released in only Black color, Company might publish phones in other colors at some later time of their launch. 5 megapixel camera, which has an auto-focus and LED flash doesn’t make it unique, but its still a robust technology, which is loved by every one. Finally the release date, phone is set to be released in the fourth quarter of year 2010, however, there is no exact date announced yet, bu we can expect it to be released a little before Christmas and holiday season, so that the sales pick up with the trend.
