Samsung has recently announced the launch of a very interesting Android phone in China, the SCH-W999. Designed for folks who love things that come in pairs, this phone features dual 3.5″ Super AMOLED (480 x 800) displays, dual SIM slots, dual-mode connectivity (GSM and CDMA2000), and a Qualcomm MSM8660 1.2GHz dual-core processor (okay, the last one isn’t really a pair). What are missing would be dual cameras and perhaps, dual-boot capabilities (now we’re getting ahead of ourselves).
Instead, the SCH-W999 features regular keypad, a five-megapixel rear camera, Android 2.3 with TouchWiz, a HyperSkin back cover (like the Galaxy Nexus), Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi, WAPI, and GPS. No word on pricing or if the phone will reach our shores, but a device like this could probably help some folks make the transition from feature to smartphone. But with dual super AMOLED screens and a dual-core processor, don’t expect this phone to come cheap.
Late last month the Blackberry Bold 9930 smartphone was given a video demo by Verizon. At the time, we knew all the details on the smartphone except how much it would sell for and when the device would land. Verizon now has the official page for the Bold 9930 up on its website with pricing info and all the details on the new smartphone. If you have been waiting to get your hands on the new Blackberry, check theofficial page out now.
The Bold 9930 will sell for $509.99 with no contract. A 2-year contract will get you the smartphone for $249.99 with free shipping if ordered online. The phone does require a data package too. It appears that the smartphone is shipping right now. The device uses the Blackberry 7 OS and has the famous QWERTY keyboard that fans like so much.
The screen of the smartphone also supports touch navigation. The rear camera is a 5MP unit with flash and image stabilization. The smartphone also has WiFi, 720p HD video recording and a lot more. The screen is a 2.8-inch unit with 640 x 480 resolution. The 1230mAh battery promises to last for up to 396 minutes on talk and 307 hours on standby.

HP updated its Pre3 website with changes that suggest the company has swapped out the phone’s single-core processor for a dual-core chip. The site now includes a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chip in the phone’s spec sheet, as opposed to the original 1.4GHz Scorpion CPU that was originally listed.
In June the Pre3 began popping up on U.K. retail websites with a July 8th launch date, but that day has come and gone and the Pre3 has yet to make an appearance. Perhaps the processor tweak has been responsible for the delay, but that’s not yet clear. Additionally, it doesn’t appear that the company has tweaked any of the phone’s other specifications. The Pre3 passed through the FCC in May and it is expected to launch on Verizon Wireless in the U.S. Unfortunately, we’re still not sure when the device will actually hit store shelves.
