    HTC 7 Pro

    HTC 7 Pro

    HTC’s next Windows Phone 7 handset, simply called the 7 Pro, is now thought to be arriving in the UK at some point in January, according to reports on the German website of network provider O2.

    Originally it was thought that the HTC 7 Pro would hit the UK before the end of the year with the other early handsets based on Microsoft’s flagship platform, but this deadline was missed and a January launch seems likely.

    The HTC 7 Pro is aimed at business users and heavy messaging fans, as it has a full slide-out QWERTY keypad arranged in a landscape orientation. It also features the type of hardware that all Windows Phone 7 handsets must possess in order to comply with Microsoft’s minimum system requirements, namely a 1GHz processor, a five megapixel camera and all the connectivity options you would expect.

    By adding a QWERTY keypad, the HTC 7 Pro is going head to head with the BlackBerry handsets which are current kings of the business sector, although the fact that this new arrival is integrated with various Microsoft services commonly found in enterprise setups, should bode well for its future success.

    Samsung Galaxy PlayerThe Consumer Electronics Show will be home to many product launches and now it looks like Samsung is planning to expand its Galaxy range of smartphones and portable tablets with a four inch mini-tab next month.

    The rumoured Samsung Galaxy Player will feature a four inch touchscreen display which will be the same size as that of the Galaxy S or Nexus S, but will use standard LCD technology rather than coveted Super AMOLED.

    The device will run version 2.2 of the Android operating system and will be powered by a 1GHz processor. A 3.2 megapixel camera on the rear will be supplemented by a forward-facing camera, presumably for video calling.

    Reports from Samsung Hub suggest that the Galaxy Player is getting Android Market access, just like the other devices in the Galaxy range.

    The Galaxy Player looks set to take on the iPod Touch just like the Galaxy Tab assaulted the iPad earlier in 2010. There is no word on whether the device will sport 3G connectivity, which would be enough to make it a fully-featured mobile phone, but with CES just days away there is not long to wait until it emerges in full.

    Cybershot S006

    Cybershot S006

    Sony Ericsson has been in the news for its planned PlayStation phone, but now rumours of a new camera-focused smartphone from the manufacturer have emerged, suggesting that its Cybershot range is going to be added to in 2011.

    Originally, this as yet unnamed smartphone was set to be a Japanese exclusive, but since then it has been approved by the FCC in the US, suggesting that an international launch is inevitable.

    Onboard, its specs look healthy with a 1GHz processor, a slide-out portrait keypad and a touchscreen display. The most important of the specs is of course its camera, which will have a 16 megapixel sensor, allowing it to instantly eclipse previous big boys of the cameraphone market like the Nokia N8 and Sony Ericsson Vivaz.

    In addition, the Sony Ericsson Cybershot phone appears to be water resistant and will support various contemporary forms of connectivity including GPS, Wi-Fi and HSDPA.

    The chances of this powerful cameraphone making it to the UK are unknown and at the moment the prototype does not even have a mainstream operating system to speak of, so its development for an international market is likely to be ongoing.

    LG Optimus 2X

    Dual core power

    Smartphone fans will be pleased to hear that news from Sweden suggests that the LG Optimus 2X will be arriving in the same price bracket as its high end rivals when it launches early next year.

    The LG Optimus 2X is set to sport a dual-core processor, making it a uniquely powerful addition to the market. If current reports from Swedish retailer CDon are to be believed the pre-order price for a SIM free Optimus 2X will be around £470.

    This figure has been arrived at because the firm put a 555 Euro tag on the phone and, as such, it is difficult to judge whether this will be directly converted into pounds sterling for the UK launch.

    If the LG Optimus 2X does hit stores in the UK at this price point, it will be well placed to take on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S and HTC HD2, two smartphones which are also based on the Android operating system.

    It outclasses its major rivals in terms of specs, but sheer processing power will not make it a great phone, so it will be up to LG to ensure that the implementation of the software is bang on the money.

    When the prices are confirmed you can compare the available UK deals below:

    LG BLG has been in the news regularly over the past couple of weeks. First for the dual-core splendour of the Optimus X2 and now for a new prototype smartphone, known simply as the LG B and thought to be less thick than Apple’s respectably slim iPhone 4.

    Limited information is known about the LG B, although it is thought that it will run a current version of Android and have a four inch display, according to details acquired by Phandroid.

    Apple has been making much of the fact that the iPhone 4 is the thinnest smartphone in the world, but LG could soon wipe the smile from its face, if these leaks turn out to be verifiable rather than wishful thinking.

    The LG B appeared alongside the specs of other mysterious screen technologies in a table which appears to compare it directly to the Samsung Galaxy S and Apple iPhone 4. What is clear from the table, is that its display will be significantly brighter than these two major rivals.

    LG tweeted to confirm the existence of the B smartphone and said that it will make its debut at CES 2011 next month, although this tweet was quickly removed, implying an internal slipup.
