Vaja is now offering an ivolution for all those Omnia owners out there that want to have a very nice case for their new friend. And with more Omnia owners on the way thanks to the news earlier this week regarding Verizon adding the Omnia, I suspect more and more people will be interested in this stylish case.

The two devices currently vying for my “daily driver” position – the Samsung Omnia and the HTC Touch Pro will soon be options on Verizon Wireless. VZW announced the Omnia and Touch Pro this past week, and it looks like Verizon-ites will have a chance to snag a great device when they make their appearence in stores. Now if I could just pick between the two!

Windows Mobile Phone Looks Neat, Intimidating, and Odd at the Same Time!

http://www.engadgetmobile.com/2008/…fe-looks-scary/

“Edinburgh’s own The Medical Phone is just about set to unleash the mobile for the true argonaut in the iCEphone. The Windows Mobile-powered “Swiss Army knife of mobiles” is dubbed a micro-notebook by its manufacturer, and while we’re hesitant to go along with that, we can’t deny the utility here. Sporting a Jacob’s Ladder-style hinge and a full QWERTY keyboard, the unit features three independent panels, a 3-inch 400 x 240 resolution touchscreen, a mouse / tracker pad, dual SIM card slots, HSDPA support, quad-band GSM connectivity, GPS, a 3.1-megapixel camera, WiFi and a 532MHz Freescale iMX31 CPU. We’re told that the phone is just weeks / months away from a release in Thailand, and it should be hitting the UK sometime in the March – April time frame for around $1,000.”

You can’t say this isn’t an original form factor, I rarely see something this big and somewhat intimidating with Windows Mobile on it (Well, perhaps the Rugged devices are intimidating somewhat). Anyone think they want to sport one of these next year?

Verizon Announces Samsung Saga

http://www.samsungmobilenews.com/20…rizon-wireless/

“Verizon Wireless and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile)1 announced the addition of two new phones to Verizon Wireless’ robust portfolio of global phones – the Samsung RenownTM and the Samsung SagaTM The Saga is a smartphone that features a 2.55″ advanced touch screen and a full QWERTY keyboard that provides business professionals with an easy way to send e-mail, text and instant messages. This productivity powerhouse is equipped with Quad Band GSM/GPRS capability, an optical mouse, Wi-Fi access (802.11 b/g), Opera mobile browser and Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional to keep customers connected to their offices when they are at home and abroad.”

Hopefully the Saga won’t simply “be a a medieval Icelandic or Norse prose narrative of achievements and events in the history of a personage, family, etc” but will be an honest to goodness Windows Mobile device that brings some options to those on VZW. Opera is getting bundled more and more these days, and for good reason. Now if VZW can simply find a way to charge by the keypress, they’d be all set.

Pharos Unveils New Traveler 117 and 127 Phones

http://www.pharosgps.com/buzz/buzz_…eler117_127.pdf

“Pharos introduced two new GPS smartphones that offer full-featured navigation and lightning-fast 3.5G connectivity on an unlocked, Windows Mobile handset. The Pharos Traveler 117 and 127 are Pharos’ first phones to include Pharos Smart Navigator, a unique hybrid navigation product that is the first to combine navigation software + location services on a Windows Mobile device”

I’ve long been a fan of Pharos Ostia GPS package, and their new hybrid phones that include the Smart Navigator component look pretty nice. Pharos has been at this phone thing now for a year or two – anyone out there have one or have an opinion on one?

Touch Pro Reviewed at Mobile Tech Review, 4WinMobile

http://www.mobiletechreview.com/pho…C-Touch-Pro.htm

“The HTC Touch Pro is undeniably one of the hottest PDA phones of 2008. And in the US, just as with the HTC Touch Diamond, Sprint customers get to sample it first. Previously available only as a GSM import with no US 3G, the Sprint version is the first carrier-branded Touch Pro. Rumor has it that AT&T will launch their version soon as the Fuze, and Verizon will have a version with a slower CPU and less memory (again, these are just rumors as of this writing). What is the Touch Pro? It’s the keyboard-ed version of the Diamond, and it’s light years ahead of the Mogul on Sprint or the Tilt on AT&T. It’s smaller, more modern looking, has a flush VGA touch screen display and all the bells and whistles you’d expect on a flagship smartphone. Specs include Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, a 528MHz CPU, 288 megs of RAM and 512 megs of flash storage, an SDHC microSD card slot, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and a 3.2 megapixel camera. For messaging and content creation types, the most salient feature is the Touch Pro’s slide–out QWERTY keyboard.”

The Touch Pro is getting quite a lot of attention as of late. With the review quoted above and another at 4WinMobile, it is interesting to see it getting some very high marks from reviewers around the world. I’m certainly interested in it as well as the Omnia – what about you?

President Elect Obama

Here is the only real revelation or startling thought I’ve had tonight regarding the election. Last summer, I listened heavily to the song Pary like a Rock Star and while listening to it, I thought “The Obama campaign should really use this and sing it as “Party like Barack”. That was 18 months before the election.
The best part of the evening isn’t if your candidate won or the other guy lost – it’s that these stupid, protracted, and utterly draining election cycles are over. For at least the next 25-30 months or so. Hopefully.
