Seesmic have been showing off their app for Windows Phone 7 and it is looking pretty damned nice we must say. If this is the sort of standard we can expect from apps on Winows Phone 7, at least as far as aesthetics are concerned, then it looks like the iPhone might have a real run for its money with those who want beautiful things. Android, whilst having the second largest app store, has often come in for criticism over its apps not having that 'polished' feel to them, but that doesn't look like its going to be a problem here. Take a look at the video below:

Gartner Projects Android In 2nd Place By 2011    [ 16-09-2010 19:26 ]

Author: Irina Turina   Source: IntoMobile     Translation by: Paul Smith    Send news to friend  Discuss in forum

A new set of projections from research firm Gartner has reinforced the prediction that Android is heading to the top of the smartphone market, largely at the expense of Blackberry and Symbian. The research suggests that Android will overtake Blackberry by the end of this year, but just barely, however, that lead will grow and by 2011 Android will have a commanding lead over RIM. Symbian is predicted to remain in the number one spot through to 2014, but the projections say that Android will be a whisker behind them.

iOS's market share drops a few points in the projections, but it manages to retain the number three spot ahead of Blackberry, which falls to fourth position in the smartphone stakes. Perhaps the most interesting prediction concerns Windows Phones 7, which Gartner are projecting to essentially be a non-event, steadily declining into obscurity.

Of course it is worth pinting out the problems with this set of projections, not the least of which is the fact that they are projections and not actual facts. However, it is also worth remembering that Symbian, almost uniquely, retains such a large market share through low-end devices whereas the other players focus more on the higher-end of the market. iOS, unlike Symbian or Blackberry OS is used on more devices than just phones so again there is disparity. However, the geenral trend is easy enough to spot ... Android is on the up.

Anyone who saw the most recent Star Trek film will probably remember seeing some Nokia product placement during the film. Well as it happens Nokia have actually bene building some Star Trek communicator prototypes ... yes seriously. It mimicks the sound effects and actions of the communicator seen on the original series and admittedly it looks pretty damned good. Supposedly there are fourteen of these things floating around so they're pretty rare. Check out the video below:

HTC Desire Might Not Be Receiving HTCSense.com Enhancements?    [ 16-09-2010 18:34 ]

Author: Irina Turina   Source: TechRadar     Translation by: Paul Smith    Send news to friend  Discuss in forum

Just yesterday many an HTC Desire owner would have been reading about HTC's new SENSE UI improvements with excitement, but today it's looking a little shaky as to whether the original Desire will receive the enhancements. The new UI links up with HTCSense.com to offer users cloud based backups of relevant data as well as locating lost/stolen handsets and, if need be, locking or wiping them remotely. There is also improved maps and DLNA support as well as Facebook photo enhancements. All very well and good, but Jon French, executive director at HTC, commented "[the new UI enhancements] depends on a technical standard, where it has to support the new services offered by HTCSense.com. We're launching that on the Desire HD and Desire Z, and it could be that we roll it out to other devices later on."

Mr French said that a device would need to be running Froyo (Android 2.2) to actually use the new enhancements, but the Desire has already received an upgrade to Android 2.2 (at least most have) so in theory at least there should be no problem. Hopefully that turns out to be the case, but still why the hesitation over including the original Desire?
