Future iPhone to be x86 powered, Intel inside

Now I’m not saying the next iPhone due to come out this year will have an Intel chip inside, but the one after that, think summer 2009, is looking like a strong candidate for Intel’s upcoming Moorestown chip. This slide from my friend Charlie over at TheINQ pretty much says it all:

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 shows AT&T graphic at CeBIT

At this year’s CeBIT in Germany, Sony Ericsson is showing its latest super-baby XPERIA X1. What struck us down is the AT&T’s logo located at the center of menu. What could that possibly mean? Is Swedish-Japanese handset maker trying to indirectly pitch the U.S. based carrier through media? Or the deal is already done and…

Spyker shows off LaTurby and MonteCarlo at CeBIT

Following on the Dutch automaker’s lackluster, branded handset offerings from last year, Spyker is set to roll out two new mobile phones at CeBIT 2008.

Meizu M8 miniOne finally caught in the wild – sort of

Ahh, the almost mythical Chinese rip-off of the iPhone. We’ve been seeing prototype mock-ups and renderings of the Meizu M8 miniOne ever since the iPhone launched, but we’ve yet to get our hands on one. The problem? There just isn’t a finished version of the Meizu M8 iPhone clone in the wild. The closest we’ve…

T-Mobile Germany announces the MDA compact IV

During this year’s CeBIT, T-Mobile Germany announced the MDA compact IV Windows Mobile smartphone. Apparently, the new device is based on a new, yet unknown HTC smartphone which most likely runs Windows Mobile 6.1, and which will start selling from May 2008 for 111 EUR with T-Mobile’s 24 months Relax 100 plan. Other specs include…
