Microsoft Windows Phone HTC Touch Pro 2, HD2 Hands-on Video -- Smartphone Round Robin

Microsoft Windows Phone HTC Touch Pro 2, HD2 Hands-on Video -- Smartphone Round Robin

Week 4 of the 2009 Smartphone Round Robin brings me face-to-big-glass-face with our most ancient nemesis -- Microsoft's Windows Mobile Phone, this year spawning the killer keyboard of the HTC Touch Pro 2, and the monstrous hardware of the HTC HD2. Yes, that's 2 times HTC version 2 devices and to help me out, I've got the dark lord of WMExperts himself, the one and only WMExperts Phil Nickinson to show me the ropes -- and quite honestly to help me lift that ginormous HD2 onto the table!

Remember, every day you post on my WMExperts Forums thread, you're entered for a chance to win the Windows Phone of your choice. (And there's a total of 6 smartphones up for grabs -- one per SPE site -- so check them all out!)

This week also brings the yin to my yang, the productivity to my play, my best frenemy forever, CrackBerry Kevin back to TiPb and the iPhone he claims never to use. Head on over to the TiPb forums and help him out, would you? (i.e. show him some neat new games). And get a chance to win an iPhone 3GS for your troubles.

Video hands-on with the Touch Pro 2 and HD2 after the break!

Apple's App Approval Process Getting Speedy

TUAW recently remarked that the App Store approval process seemed to be working much faster lately. TiPb has been in contact with numerous application developers and the general overall feel we are getting is that it's true -- Apple is finally coming around when it comes to the app approval process. Much has been said about Apple and their App Store over the past few years but things have seemingly changed for the better.

Korea Gets in on the 4th Gen iPhone Rumors! OLED, iChat Video, Duel-core, More!

Not content to allow France to hog all the 4th generation iPhone rumor attention, Korea Times claims carrier KT reveals (we read that as wishes rather than knows) the following specs:

They said the coming 4G iPhones will be equipped with organic light emitting diode (OLED) screens on surface and live video chat functionalities, while removable battery is highly likely.

iPhone vs. Nexus One: Which One Should You Buy?

Scarcely 2 months after Motorola and Verizon launched the Android-powered DROID, Google is back with another high-end smartphone, the Nexus One, this time sold unlocked by Google directly, but also in partnership with T-Mobile, and with Verizon, Vodafone, and others coming online soon. Once again, the tech-blog hype has been off the charts, and once again the iPhone 3GS is being used as the great comparison. Fine then, let's compare!

If you're interested in either Apple's iPhone 3GS or Google's Nexus One, here are some points to consider...

Some AT&T iPhone Users Seeing Increased 3G Data Speeds?

The past few days our inbox has been flooded with emails from you, our readers, letting us know that you've experienced significant increases in AT&T 3G data speeds.

Motorola Endeavor HX1 Bone-conduction Bluetooth Headset Hands-on -- TiPb @ CES 2010 [Updated, Sponsored-ish]

Motorola Endeavor HX1 Bone-conduction Bluetooth Headset Hands-on -- TiPb @ CES 2010 [Updated, Sponsored-ish]

The Motorola Endeavor HX1 is the latest salvo in the Bluetooth noise-reduction arms race, and it takes it to another level -- reading the bone vibrations in your inner ear and digitally converting those vibrations into recognizable speech. That's right, when regular microphones fail, when even noise-reduction won't work, Motorola is actually turning off the microphone entirely and reproducing what you say based on sound waves in your skull. It won't sound as good as a mic, however, but in a crowded place like the floor of CES 2010, rather than a dull, indistinguishable crowd roar, you can actually be heard.

Video after the break!

[UPDATE: And the iMore Store folks told me they just got the Motorola Endeavor HX1 in stock, and it's on sale 31% off, if the video entices...]

iHound GPS Tracker for iPhone -- TiPb @ CES 2010

iHound [$2.99 - iTunes link] is an app that, if you lose your iPhone, will let you send it a message and then track it down via GPS.
