It's the announcement that iOS fans the world over have been waiting for - Apple have announced an iPhone event to take place in Cupertino on October 4th. The long awaited iPhone 5 will finally be announced and fans can plan their strategy for release day. It's strongly suspected that a cheaper version of the iPhone 4 will also be on the cards. Countdown begins now...
Good news from Samsung for Windows Phone fans. The mobile giant is due to release the Omnia W, which will run on Windows Phone Mango, in October. With features including a 1.4GHz processor, 512MB RAM, Super AMOLED display and a 5 megapixel camera with auto focus, it's a pretty decent phone. There's also a 3G video calling app added by Samsung themselves. Thoughts?
This video is really cool - Nissan have used an iOS feature allowing 360 views of the footage. By moving your iPhone to the left or the right, you can change your view of the car. Shaking your phone will also make the people in the ad change their hats. It's awesome!
So it looks like a date for the iPhone 5 has finally been decided - October 4th. However, this is the date the device is rumoured to be unveiled, not when it will be available. The release date hasn't been pinpointed more than "within a few weeks" of the announcement so bets are on as to the actual date. Will it be as quick as the iPad 2, which turned around in 9 days? Will it be another Friday launch, seeing as iPad 2 went so well? There's a poll going on at Mashable, pop over and place your vote!
Up until now, if you weren't a fan of touchscreen devices, you couldn't avail of TEGRA 2 technology. Luckily, fans of the traditional QWERTY keyboard can now have one, a slim device and TEGRA 2 all at once. LG have announced a new Android phone known as Optimus Q2, which features all of the aforementioned, alongside a 5 megapixel rear camera, a 4 inch IPS LCD screen and a front camera for video calling. What's more, the TEGRA 2 processor is the newly-upgraded 1.2 GHz version, making the Optimus Q2 potentially one of the best Android devices on the market. What are your thoughts? Can a QWERTY-featuring phone still be cool?
