Sony Ericsson W8 Not Launching In Europe    [ 16-06-2011 19:04 ]

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

Whilst Sony fans may be rejoicing at the news that the company's first tablet will hit European shelves this September they may not be so full of cheer to learn that the Sony Ericsson W8 looks set not to go on sale in Europe.

Responding to a request for information on the handset's availability Sony Ericsson replied:

We can confirm that the W8 Walkman phone will be avilable in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. The Walkman branding and the legacy from previous Walkman phones is very strong in these particular markets and therefore we decided to launch the phone in these markets.

Of course the W8 isn't exactly at the cutting edge when it comes to specs, but it seems the decision is based on brand recognition and loyalty and apparently European consumers have apparently moved on from the Walkman brand. At least that's how it appears from Sony Ericsson's statement.

Sony's First Tablet To Launch In Europe This September    [ 16-06-2011 19:01 ]

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

Tablets are ten a penny these days (well they do cost a little more than that I suppose), but one notable omission has been Sony/Sony Ericsson. One of the largest consumer electronics companies in the world and no tablet device? Well of course they do have a device or two in the works and it now seems that Sony's first tablet device will be avilable for pre-order across Europe by August.

The pre-order date came to light in a note passed to Sony's marketing department and was seen by Engadget. The tablet in question, whilst not actually named in the note, would almost certainly be the S1 or the S2, both of which were given a little showing back in April.

With a pre-order timeframe of August actual sales would begin in September. It will be interesting to see which of the two tablets gets launched first and of course there is always the possibility that both go on sale simultaneously.

Nokia: Announcing 'Market Disrupting Device' on 21st June    [ 16-06-2011 18:10 ]

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

Nokia famously cast aside its own MeeGo platform earlier this year in favour of Windows Phone, but many are hoping that MeeGo will have one last hurrah in the form of the N9. Feeding that wish is the possibility that Nokia will announce it within the next week at the Nokia Connection event in Singapore.

iTWire received an invitation to the evnt and have said that Nokia are apparently introducing a 'new market disrupting device'. That could be the N9, which, by the way, was recently approved by the FCC in America. There has also been a request put out to keep N9 images confidential further fueling the rumour mill that the handset is about to get official.

Even if it does become official in Singapore we should remind you of what Eldar said regarding the device, namely that only 92,000 of them will be produced. For a global audience that would make the N9 a pretty rare commodity and it would no doubt achieve a sort of cult status pretty quickly amongst Nokia fans.

Yahoo! App Search & App Spot Aim To Take Sting Out Of Finding New Apps    [ 16-06-2011 17:59 ]

Find new apps can be a rather annoying progress due to the sheer volume of apps now available across all platforms. Enter Yahoo! and its App Search and App Spot services to help you find the apps you want. App Search is for the desktop whilst App Spot is the mobile equivalent. The two coordinate all the information you need in one place e.g. price, description, ratings, etc. You can check out the official demo below:
