Nokia E73 Mode

As had been rumoured, Nokia has announced the Nokia E73 Mode for T-Mobile USA. The device is aimed at business users with features such as support for IBM Lotus Traveler, access to, and applications such as Ovi Files, QuickOffice, Adobe PDF Manager and ZIP Manager.

“T-Mobile is committed to providing a variety of devices that serve our customers’ needs to stay connected to the central people in their lives including family, friends and even colleagues from the office,” said Travis Warren, director, product marketing, T-Mobile USA. “With the Nokia E73 Mode, we’re excited to offer a premium device at an attractive price that helps Mom and Dad put work aside and make their family the top priority.”

Full specifications have not been released but the E73 Mode appears to be no more than a modified E72 for T-Mobile. It will come with 3G connectivity, a QWERTY keyboard, GPS, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, UMA support for WLAN calling, a 5MP camera with auto-focus and flash, and microSDHC storage (4GB microSD card included).

The Nokia E73 will be available from T-Mobile USA starting on June 16th for US$69.99 on a two year contract.

T-Mobile G1

Just having posted about a security flaw on the just released T-Mobile G1, I realized that I completely missed the announcement earlier this week.

T-Mobile launched the G1 after a successful pre-order period that saw existing customers get first dibs on the first ever Google Android-powered mobile phone. The G1 is now available in select retail stores across the U.S. and online at The Android Market also launched.

With a fun and intuitive user interface and one-touch access to Google Search, the T-Mobile G1 is the first phone to offer access to Android Market, which hosts unique applications and mashups of existing and new services from developers around the world. Customers can find and download a wide range of innovative applications-from games to social networking and on-the-go shopping-to personalize their phone and enhance their mobile lifestyle. Even better, for a limited time, the dozens of applications available on Android Market are available free-of-charge for T-Mobile G1 users.

The T-Mobile G1 is available for as low as USD$179.99 with a two-year voice and data service contract (with a minimum of USD$55 per month). Without a service contract, the G1 will sell for USD$399.99.

Apple iPhone

Just in case Gadgetorama is the only web site that you check for news about the outside world (and you have missed our iPhone coverage in the past), today is the day that the world (well, the US at least) finally gets to get their hands on the Apple iPhone. It will be available today at 1800 local time and lineups are well under way at Apple and AT&T stores. Apple has confirmed that you will be able to purchase a maximum of two iPhones.

Apple has also got a number of iPhone accessories ready for you. Among them is the Bluetooth headset (which includes an iPhone Dual Dock to charge both the iPhone and the headset and a Bluetooth Travel Cable) for US$129, the iPhone Stereo Headset for US$29 and a US$29 USB power adapter among others.

Apple has also released iTunes 7.3 which will let you activate the iPhone service and let you sync it with your PC.

Microsoft Zune

Microsoft formally announced its Zune brand and its products today. Focused on principles of sharing, discovery and community, Zune devices will let you connect to your library, friends, to larger communities and to other devices. Zune will consist a DAP, the Zune Marketplace music service (supporting individual track or album downloads as well as a Zune Pass subscription to download as many songs as you want for a flat fee) and an online community (thnk of something similar to Xbox Live for music lovers).

The first Zune device is a 30GB DAP (enough for up to 7,500 songs, 25,000 pictures or 100 hours of video) with a 3-inch screen, wireless technology and a built-in FM tuner with RDS. It will be available in 3 colours: black, brown and white. It will come preloaded with music and videos from Virgin Records, Ninja Tune, Quango Music Group and other labels.

Three accessory packs were also announced. The Zune Car Pack includes a built-in FM tuner with AutoSeek and the Zune Car Charger. The Zune Home A/V Pack is five products to hook up your Zune to yoru TV and music speakers. The Travel Pack is another five products to deliver entertainment on the road.

It will be interesting (and good for us consumers) to watch Apple and Microsoft try to out-do each other in the next few months.
