    Wow, that's some awesome corporate policy there, Phones4U. It really cements the validity of the flagship Android device. I bet Google are so chuffed...

    HTC Desire (formerly Bravo) leaked press shot, the Nexus One for the masses - now with full specs!



    Pining for Google's latest pin-up?

    Who needs a Nexus One when HTC are set to announce the Bravo at the MWC conference in Barcelona tomorrow!

    The handset looks to be set to match the N1 specs, including that glorious 3.7" AMOLED screen, but with added HTC flavour! The Bravo is expected to include an optical navigation stick, the same 1GHz Snapdragon CPU from Qualcomm, and HTC's Sense UI running on top plus the addition of a FM Radio.

    Edit: Full specs now available, and it seems to be christened the 'HTC Desire'!

    The official Acer M900 "Ask Chris..." thread!
    [teaser]
    Acer announced their new "Tempo Smartphone" range of Windows Mobile powered handsets at MWC in January this year. Having absorbed Eten and their Glofiish range last year these make up the first new handsets we have seen in the Acer range. I am happy to announce that podcast sponsors Expansys have provided us with the flagship Acer M900 Windows Mobile professional device to put through its paces! The full spec looks a little something like this:

    Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
    Samsung 533 Mhz 6410 CPU
    256/128MB ROM/RAM
    3.8-inch 800x480 WVGA
    Fingerprint reader/directional sensor
    Quad band GSM/Dual band HSDPA (Euro)
    Wifi/BT/GPS
    5.0 mpix with LED flash
    Audio supported formats: WMA, WAV, MP3, AAC, AMR, SP-MIDI, MIDI, MMF, AWB, RMI
    Video supported formats: 3GP, MPEG4, WMV, H.263, H.264
    1530 mAh battery
    microSD
    Dimensions: 119 x 62 x 17.1 mm
    Weight: 188 grams
    My first impressions are a little mixed, the device looks great however, while it feels solid, the quality is lacking a little when compared to market leaders such as Samsung and HTC. The custom GUI overlaying the standard Windows Mobile today screen is a little cheesy but could prove to be quite powerful. The big high res screen is glorious of course, and it makes for a great satnav device (no software included as far as I can see, but there is a dedicated GPS button next to the fingerprint reader, and the letters "GPS" embossed in the top of the casing!). The keyboard is a nice surprise too, well spaced and comfortable, but let down slightly by a spongy space bar.

    I am optomistic, however, that this handset could prove to be an underrated star! I'll be giving it the usual run down over the coming weeks, so check out the podcast (enhanced too!) for mine and Paul's thoughts and post your burning questions below!

    The Acer M900 is priced at £369.99 at Expansys (or from free with a contract!)
