HKC Announce Dual SIM Handsets

I responded a little like the American Press reacted to Victoria Beckham when a press release from HKC dropped into my inbox. "Who?", said I, "Surely they mean HTC yeah?" Well no, actually the company is called HKC and this is their HKC 1000 series ha...

TouchBrowser – Drag and drop internet browsing

Watch out, because I'm about to use "that" phrase. Makayama have just announced TouchBrowser. It's an iPhone-like (doah!) touch-and-drag browser which will let you slide your web pages around the screen in a fluid motion using your finger. In practice...

HTC Shift now showing on Orange website

The HTC Shift we reviewed was our first look at an Ultra Mobile PC. Apart from the slightly tricky-to-use keyboard it's great to have a full PC running Windows Vista in your (large) pocket. It's been available network free from Devicewire for £873.99...

UK Network Three to carry HTC TyTN II

It's been quite some time since UK 3G network "Three" carried a Windows Mobile phone. The QTek 9000 was their last dip into this territory, although most of their network services and features are geared towards non-Windows phones. However, it looks l...

In video – Google Android on my HTC Touch Dual

Thanks to some rather nifty work by the guys at xda-developers.com I've just managed to do something rather special with my HTC Touch Dual. What is it? Well, I've got Google Android working on it. Sure, it's a little hit-and-miss right now and it took...

Glofiish X600 – The Review

Next on the Coolsmartphone review list is the ETEN Glofiish X600. This is a diddy GPS-enabled handset with a Samsung 400Mhz CPU, Quad-band GSM / GPRS / EDGE and Wifi, Bluetooth 2, a microSD slot, 2 megapixel camera and an on-board FM radio. This is ou...

DashWire – Your phone, on the web

OK, I've seen quite a bit of buzz about DashWire of late and, after trying it, I'll admit it's richly deserved. This, quite simply, is really, really, really good. Sure, it'll let you backup your phone (texts, photos, videos, voicemail, call logs, pho...

Want to send contact information via a text message ? Well, it's not always available on all Windows Mobile handsets. Only some of the latest devices have the ability to send contact details to someone using a simple text message, so - if you're in ne...

True Connect – See it in action

When we started this site several years back we wanted to ensure that there was as little "geek speak" as possible. So, to find a software company making a nice friendly video showing how to use their software, is certainly refreshing. Better still, i...

We're currently reviewing two ETEN handsets - the Glofiish X600 and the X800. Both have GPS built in, 2 megapixel cameras, an FM radio and WiFi, but - apart from the size difference, how do they compare? As usual we love to bring you stuff hot off th …

HTC are about to launch.. something..

Eh up! Something big is brewing at HTC HQ. A big London event? Loads of Press people? Hmmm.. it'll take more than that to get us there. What? What's that you say? Free drink?I'm booking the hotel now baby! Speculation is rife, with rumours of an all-n...
