BlackBerry Torch review

Dennis Hissink
PMA 2010 Report
Sunday 2nd, January 2011
Posted by: Dennis Hissink

The BlackBerry Torch sales packaging is small, and as always for BlackBerry, it is matte black. As soon as we open the packaging, the BlackBerry Torch Smartphone is found in a special cut-away. The new BlackBerry Smartphone has a very sleek design. We find about four buttons and an optical joystick underneath the touchscreen. When we slide the phone open, we also see a QWERTY-keyboard next to the touchscreen. This keyboard is comparable to that of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and it is a bit sunken down. The back of the BlackBerry Smartphone is completely black with a logo, and on top, the lens with flash is found. The sales packaging also contains a data cable, a headset, a charger, a small CD with software and the instruction booklets.

HTC Desire HD review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Thursday 30th, December 2010

HTC Desire HD Smartphone review - The HTC Desire HD Smartphone comes in a slim packaging with a large image of the phone itself on the front. As soon as we open the packaging, the HTC Desire HD can be picked up immediately. The HTC Desire HD Smartphone looks impressive, it is big but it also has a very sleek design. The front of the phone has a large touchscreen of 4.3 inches, with a few touch keys underneath it. The back of the HTC Desire HD Smartphone is made out of one piece, just like the HTC Legend, although it does have a couple of flaps and a cut-away near the flash made of a different material which makes the HTC mobile phone look a bit rough.

Samsung Galaxy 2

Posted by: Mark Peters Sunday 31st, January 2010

Just before the start of the MWC in Barcelona, we’ve received info about some new phones, however, there always seems to be some smartphones slipping through the mazes, which have not yet formally made their appearance in the press. Take the Samsung Galaxy 2 for example, which is apparently the successor to Samsung's first Android smartphone, and this time it has improved specifications. The first information that has reached us about the Samsung Galaxy 2 creates high expectations of a fairly advanced Android smartphone. This Samsung Android phone features a fast 1GHz Snapdragon processor and is said to feature up to 32GB internal memory for the Apps, photo, video and all sorts of data.

HTC Supersonic

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Sunday 31st, January 2010

There must be someone in that marketing department that had a side job next to their study that was solely comprised of inventing silly names? Well, that person is working for several different cell phone manufacturers or there are several people that meet that profile. Take for example the following rumor: the existence of the HTC Supersonic smartphone. Supersonic? I thought that that name had disappeared with the disappearance of the Concord flights! The HTC Supersonic is supposed to be the full successor of the HTC HD2 smartphone. Why not just call that smartphone the HTC HD3? We aren’t too sure yet if it will be called HTC Supersonic of HTC HD3.

Both the traditional photographer and the camera trade, have always turned up their nose at the camera-phone. The PMA 2011 emphasizes mainly the traditional photography, albeit in a digital way. In terms of image quality, the photographer is right, while the camera cell phone is nowhere near able to come up with the same high quality that puts digital photography ahead of mobile imaging. However, when we consider the possibility of sharing, and the fact that a mobile phone is always at hand, we should not underestimate the impact of mobile imaging. Mobile photography is continuously subject to innovation, and the speed at which these technological advances take place, is at least impressive. Perhaps the PMA 2011 will adopt mobile imaging as a permanent phenomenon?
