Samsung S5620 Monte

Here’s a good news for all the samsung phone lovers we’ve got a glimpse of the Samsung S5620 Monte phone, courtesy of DailyMobile.

Samsung’s Star and Star 3G series of touchscreen phones have proved to be a huge success in India. The first of the Star models were the S5600 and the S5230 which were launched back in 2009. These devices were soon overshadowed by the Corby series, which again are selling like hot cakes. Almost a year down the lane, Samsung has decided to give the Star range a facelift. The Samsung S5620 is said to be the successor to the Star S5600 (also known as the Preston). The device, codenamed the S5620 Monte, looks quite a capable successor and packs in some decent features as well.

The handset is expected to be attributed with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface and appears to feature a 3” display screen. It is touted to proffer 200MB of onboard memory capacity and hosts a 3.5mm headset jack.

Samsung’s as-yet-unannounced device may offer Wi-Fi, 3G and HSDPA connectivity. It is cited to incorporate GPS support and a microSD card slot. The phone is also speculated to possess an in-built camera and Qualcomm processor.

There are whispers about the S5620 Monte running the company’s very own Bada OS too, but then again these are just unconfirmed rumors.

So information on pricing may have to wait until Samsung mouths the official word on their S5620’s release date.

Google’s Nexus One, The iPhone Killer

by on Jan.06, 2010, under Gadgets, Mobile, Technology

Possibly this is the iPhone killer you were waiting for?

We already knew this was about to coming, but now its official, let’s go ahead and do the official "launch" story!

So, the much sought after "GooglePhone", the Nexus One has been officially unveiled by Google (in chagrin with HTC) at its much talked about Android Press Event earlier today. The  phone, termed by Google as a "superphone" has the looks, the specs and the backing to take on the mighty iPhone.The specs which are the same as we had posted in our earlier stories about this device does make the phone a powerful computing device, bundled in a 11.9mm, 130gram package. The Nexus One is now officially available in the US and will soon be available in "most countries" across the globe. Officially, it is not here in India though as yet. We would be taking an in-depth look at the phone, its future prospects and if this thing really blows the iPhone away. 

The unlocked Nexus would cost you a cool USD 529, (Rs.25,000) which seems to be a good price for the phone of this calibre. That by the way sure does not look like the price at which the Nexus One will arrive officially in India! That said, the current iteration of the phone does NOT support the 3G bands that will be operational in India, maybe this year only. However, Google has confirmed that more localized versions of the Nexus One is on the anvil — so we have that bit covered.

Here are all the tit bits of the killer baby.
