The UK Vodafone Palm Treo 500v is offical. In the US, many are not impressed. With all the kick-ass phones overseas, I can’t imagine people being impressed there either.
Despite the Palm Treo 500v features there seems to be a disconnect with the public. Expectations are high for Palm to redeem itself from previous shortcomings. The Palm Treo 500v still misses the mark.
Measuring 14mm thin, this candybar from Sony Ericsson is the latest in the Cyber-shot family, packed with 3.2 megapixels, autofocus, video calling and video recording ability, Bluetooth 2.0 w/A2DP, FM radio, media player (MP3/AAC) and a 1.9-inch QVGA display.
Bundled with a 256MB M2 card, (no detail on max memory capacity) USB cable and stereo headset, the Sony Ericsson CyberShot K770 is expected to launch this autumn in select markets. Pricing is to be announced.
Recognizing the missed potential by marketing the LG KE850 (Prada) purely as a fashion phone, instead of a feature rich, easy-to-use, next generation, touch screen mobile, LG is rumored to be dropping the Prada moniker on the upcoming version of the phone, the LG KU990. The new model will sport a 5 megapixel camera with flash, HSDPA, FM radio, and YouTube compatibility.

Quick specs include 2.2-inch display, 2 Megapixel camera, MicroSD card slot, media player for your music and movies and photos, dictionary, Bluetooth and GPS. 3 hours talk time and 120 hours standby.
The lot of you who have been waiting for the BlackBerry 8830 should be very happy, as Verizon has recently unloaded the global phone for a mere $199 (after agreements and rebates). Sprint users still have to wait until July to get their hands on the device, which boasts 2GB microSD card slot, media player, Bluetooth, Voice Activated Dialing (VAD) and trackball navigation.
