Samsung to release two Bada 2.0 handsets with NFC in Q4, software update in July?

11 Apr

Some of you Samsungers are probably anticipating the snazzy Wave 578 due out in May or June outside the US, but the sad news is it won’t be shipped with the upcoming Bada 2.0 OS tech gadgets. Fret not, though, as Russian blog Bada World claims to have obtained some juicy details that’ll cheer up Bada fanatics. The above slide — apparently sourced from a Samsung France conference from a few days ago — lists a pair of new but unnamed handsets that’ll pack the new software, along with 7.2Mbps HSDPA, Bluetooth 3.0, and the seemingly trendsetting NFC. The difference between these two phones? One of them appears to be the flagship Bada 2.0 model, which expects a September launch with a 3.65-inch HVGA display, a 5 megapixel main camera, plus a VGA secondary camera. The second device will follow a month later, sporting a smaller 3.14-inch QVGA screen and just a 3 megapixel imager.

In related news, TNW India reports that Bada 2.0 tech gadgets will be “first experienced in India” around July, though no hardware is mentioned here. This could imply that existing Bada users in India — where Samsung’s R&D develops 30 percent of Bada applications — may be one of the first to obtain the 2.0 update, and it shouldn’t be long before the rest of the world get their share of this piping hot pie. Anyhow, be rest assured that we’ll keep our eyes peeled open for more Bada 2.0 news — it’ll be interesting to see where Samsung’s next big push will take us.

HTC EVO 3D coming to Europe, keeping the sexy name and specs

29 Mar

Earlier this year, HTC allowed its previously Verizon-exclusive brand name out to prowl the globe with the Incredible S, and now it’s doing the same with the heretofore Sprint-only EVO moniker. The EVO 3D tech gadgets, says a tweet from HTC’s French mouthpiece, are coming to the land of baguettes, stylish mustaches and stripy pullovers, though a little bit of mystery remains as to when exactly its arrival shall be. Whatever the schedule (the EVO 3D’s set for a “summer” release in the US), the rest of Europe’s unlikely to be left out, meaning a 4.3-inch superphone with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1080p video recording in 2D and 720p in 3D, HTC’s newest Sense skin and Android’s freshest Gingerbread build, is headed out to the Old Wold. And that, fellow pilgrims, is a mighty awesome thing indeed.
