N-KIA E68-Nokia’s Knock-Off Phone

In all seriousness though, the mobile phone industry could use some innovation like this! Here’s a very interesting fake Nokia handset which is made in China. It looks like a BlackBerry, but it has an insane slider mechanism which gives you a pop-out screen by pressing a button on the phone. It’s awkward, but innovative indeed.

According to some Chinese Citizens, they are impressed by the innovation of this Nokia knockoff phone. It’s maybe the craziest phone yet, featuring a pop out screen which may frighten you. For the tech specs, it includes a 2.2 inch display (240 X 400), dual SIM, dual cameras, FM radio, Java, micro SD card slot, Bluetooth, removable battery and video recording. It runs a crappy OS which supports English and Chinese language interface. The phone supports GSM network only, brings you up to 5 hours of calling time and up to 2 weeks of standby juice.

See the one with circle in red?…Just press that once and the pop out screen appears right in front of you. Cool isn’t it. We love the creativity of this N-KIA E68, the knockoff makers did a really good job for the pop out screen. The phone comes with an extra battery when you purchase, and it’s available in two colors, red or black.

N-KIA E68 kinda cool, though if they made to top bit between the screen and the smaller clear panel clear it would be awesome…Thats cool now why didn’t Nokia think of that one ??..=) but I had to admit that this one shows a very nice concept. I wonder why they named it N-KIA..hmmm..maybe because the mobile handset is short that’s why they shortened the name…kinda cool..Thumbs up!…=)

Orange HTC Desire owner expecting update to Android 2.2

HTC Desire owners have been holding their breath and waiting anxiously for the upgrade to the latest version of Android, ‘Froyo’. However, if you are on the Orange mobile network then you will unfort

unately be sorely disappointed today, as news emerges that the over-the-air update has been delayed until mid-September.

Android fans there has been a delay in receiving the 2.2 Froyo update from HTC, & we now expect it to be available mid-Sep. Apologies–commented by one of the usersCanor Maples.

The official HTC Desire Android ‘Froyo’ update came from HTC at the beginning of August, but many of the networks have opted to delay the release to its customers until they have fully tested the stability of Android 2.2, though they deny they are adding their own little ‘frills’ to the update.

This is not the first time that Orange customers have been disappointed with an Android update, with HTC Hero owners tied to Orange had to wait a month for their update to 2.1. Clearly the guys at Orange with the responsibility of rolling out the network are just a tad pedantic or perhaps they’ve found issues and are now trying to fix them.

So please don’t shoot the messenger Orange customers, but I’m afraid the news today isn’t exactly happy for you. Be patient, sit tight and keep reading our commentaries of Android 2.2 ‘Froyo’ in anticipation.
