Leaked video reveals possible iPhone 4G casing and HD LCD display

iPhone 4G

It's pretty safe to say that the boys and girls in Cupertino have been hard at work on their next big project, but they're also pretty good at keeping secrets. We are fully expecting an update to the iPhone line this summer, but what will it contain? According to this leaked video, we can expect an HD LCD screen at the very least. From what we hear, the new touchscreen display will boast a 940 x 640 pixel resolution. We also hear that it gets the same Apple A4 processor (or some variant) as the iPad too, as well as CDMA for Verizon as we touched upon previously in our iPhone 4g coverage.

Samsung smartphones with proprietary OS could be a Bada idea

Samsung Bada Smartphone Roadmap

As if there weren't enough smartphone platforms already on the market, Samsung wants to move ahead with its new Bada operating system. We've already seen one or two phones with this platform, but now the Korean mega-giant is coming forward with several more bada phones. Based on a presentation slide show, only one of them has a name right now. We had heard about the Samsung Wave with bada OS previously, but now it looks like it's getting joined by four more Samsung smartphones. A couple of them have slide-out keyboards, whereas the other two appear to be touchscreen-only devices.

kyocera-zio.200

The phenomenon may have started with a single handset from HTC, but the world of Google Android has really started to hit the ground running with support from several other major manufacturers. Likely approaching the more affordable end of the scale is the newly revealed Kyocera Zio M6000. No relation to an Italian uncle. It has been some time since we have seen something from Kyocera, but it seems that the company who shares a joint venture with Sanyo is prepared to re-enter the smartphone market. In recent years, they stayed focused largely on budget-minded handsets for so-called "second-tier" wireless carriers in Canada and the United States. The idea was to offer decent features, but at an even lower price.

Contending to be one of the hottest new smartphones to hit the limelight - the Samsung Galaxy S is a "super" updated version of the Samsung Galaxy that has already been floating around the market.

It may have taken a little time to find its legs, but the Google Android platform is really starting to take off. One of the hottest handsets to feature this operating system is the Motorola Milestone, available now through Telus Mobility. In many ways, you could say that it's the same as the Motorola Droid through Verizon, but you don't get the MOTOBLUR user interface, you would have to wait for the Motorola Backflip in that case. The Milestone is configured to use the Telus 3G+ network so its very fast.
