Rugged Samsung Xcover E2370 offers 67 days of stand-by time

Samsung announces rugged Xcover handset with 67-day standby time

Prefer your cellphone to be more tough than smart? Then you might want to give Samsung's new Xcover E2370 handset a bit of consideration. While it may not be ideally suited for much more than calls or the odd text message, it is fully ruggedized and IP54-certified for dust and splash resistance, and it boasts an impressive 67-day standby time (and 22-hour talk time) to ensure it lasts throughout your next arduous expedition (or regular business trips, as the case may be). Still no indication of a release over here, but the phone should be rolling out across Europe next month for just under $100.

The Xcover is IP54-certified, thus being dust and splash resistant. The phone weighs 115 and it’s quite bulky (19mm thick). It features GSM/EDGE connectivity, a 128 x 160 pixels TFT display, Bluetooth, FM radio, VGA photo camera, 5MB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support (up to 2GB).

US Cellular adds HTC Desire and BlackBerry Bold in August

US Cellular adds HTC Desire and BlackBerry Bold in August, teases BlackBerry 9670 for 'later this year


We were extremely close to cramping our sarcasm muscle with all the faux excitement we had to drum up for the 3.2-inch Acclaim, but US Cellular has now come back with word that it'll soon count HTC's Desire among its roster of phones. The Desire, which is mooted to be coming to other smaller carriers like Cellular South, will debut in August alongside the BlackBerry Bold. We're more excited, however, to find US Cellular promising it'll offer "a BlackBerry flip smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard" later this year. That sounds like RIM's slightly unorthodox 9670 to us, and will probably form the second part of the BB maker's pledged introduction of two new handsets. US Cellular's 2010 device lineup refresh will be completed with a pair more Androids, courtesy of LG and Samsung. The former is said to have a "large touch screen and slide-out, ergonomically-designed QWERTY keyboard," while the latter is only described as "highly-anticipated." Not too shabby.

Nokia says all of its smartphones will support NFC starting next year

From next year, all Nokia’s Smart phones will support NFC

Every single Nokia smartphone built from 2010 will support Near Field communications [NFC]

On Thursday, Nokia’s executive VP for markets Anssi Vanjoki while delivering a keynote presentation in Helsinki said that all the Nokia’s smartphones built in 2010 will come equipped with Near Field Communications [NFC] technology. With NFC, Nokia smartphone users will be able to make payments by waving their handsets near a compatible reader. Though, he did not give any specific info about which Nokia smartphones will have this feature; however on being asked about smartphones to support Single Wire Protocol [SWP], Nokia had earlier used, he explained that smartphones will support both SWP and other secure element formats including MicroSD card. He also indicated towards the possibility of smartphones supporting an embedded element too.

For third party application developers, there will also be made available a set of tools.

The announcement has come at a time when the NFC market was buzzed with rumors about Nokia ending support to near field communication technology, as earlier this year there had come a news about the handset maker canceling plans to kick start production of its highly anticipated 6216 Classic NFC phone.

Verizon Motorola ‘Droid X’

Verizon confirms the existence of Motorola ‘Droid X’

Verizon Wireless Thursday confirmed that Motorola will be launching a new Android-based handset, the ‘Droid X’; with the carrier’s website showing the image of the device, accompanied by the caption: “The Next Generation of Does: Droid Does.” Presenting a series of mouse-over animations, Verizon’s Flash-based web promo for the Droid X revealed that the handset features a 4.3-inch screen, HDMI output; and boasts the capability of capturing 720-pixel video.

The web promo by Verizon comes a few days ahead of a reported Verizon media event scheduled for Wednesday, June 23 – that is, one day before the release of the much-hyped and much-leaked Apple iPhone 4. The ‘invitation only’ event, titled “Unleashing the Next Generation of Droid,” will witness speeches by Verizon,Motorola, Abode, and Google executives.

Though there has been hardly any other official disclosure about Motorola’s forthcoming Droid, pictures and rumored specifications of the device have been making rounds on the blogosphere for quite some time.

The handset was earlier referred to as the ‘Droid Xtreme’ and ‘Droid Shadow’; and the rumor mills were abuzz about its 1GHz processor, along with either 8GB or 16GB of built-in memory and an 8-megapixel camera. Rumors also have it that the Droid X will run Android 2.2 ‘Froyo’; and will feature a modified version of Motorola’s Motoblur Android interface.

Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 tablet

Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 tablet sports WiFi and 3G data

Samsung's 7-inch Tab has certainly captured everyone's attention as another possible anti-iPad tablet. So far, Samsung's only saying that its Galaxy Tab will launch in Q3 without providing much in the way of detail other than this picture tweeted (and then pulled) by a Samsung's official Twitter account in South Africa. Since then we've seen rumored specs that include Android 2.2, a 7-inch Super AMOLED display, 1.2GHz A8 processor, 4,000mAH battery, 370-gram weight, and 16GB of on-board memory with up to 32GB of microSD expansion.

Today we've received an anonymous tip with even more info. After a series of communications with this person, we're confident enough to at least pass along what was said. Mind you, we're still classifying it as rumor until we see further evidence. First off, our source claims to have spent time with the same four-button device we saw in the video yesterday. The "sturdy and well-built" tablet was "very thin," described as about the same thickness as an iPhone. Our source says that the P1000 model is correct and that it will indeed feature "full phone functionality" albeit without a dedicated earpiece on the bezel -- for audio, you'll have to rely on a Bluetooth headset or the P1000's speaker. Thank gawd... the last thing we want to see if someone screaming into a 7-inch tablet held to the side of their head. There's a front-facing camera for video calling and a 3.2 megapixel camera around back for shooting pictures and video. Granted, 3.2 megapixels seems suspiciously low for the notoriously pixel greedy Samsung. Besides Bluetooth, we're told that the Galaxy Tab will also feature WiFi and 3G data, a standard SIM slot, and can tether over USB or WiFi. Oh, and the battery can't be removed and the version our source used had a 6x4 icon layout and appeared to be running stock Android 2.2 Froyo. Interesting,
