mango phones

In case you wanted to take a closer look at their basic specs, all of the new Windows Phone announced so far, including the Samsung Focus S, Focus Flash and HTC's Titan and Radar 4G are listed on WindowsPhone.com.

The only thing "new" that we found was the mention of the Focus S's "wide-band AMR advanced sound quality", which we have no idea what it means, but we guess we should be impressed and it's down as having a 9-hour battery life (a regular Focus clocks in at 7-hours, for comparison).

Of interest is how T-Mobile Radar 4G is listed under "Other" for some odd reason and the Quantum is still listed, even though it's gone from AT&T's site.

Not much to say about this outside of it's a pic of the Samsung Focus S, laying on a table. No info on availability, pricing or really anything we didn't know already.

To refresh, the device has a 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus screen, 1.4GHz CPU, 8MP rear camera and a 1.3MP front facing camera along with AT&T's "4G" on board, making it an excellent follow up to the venerable Samsung Focus.

Hopefully we'll be hearing more soon.

Although we're not expecting ZTE to launch any Windows Phones near the shores of Europe or North America anytime soon, the company is expected to be a big player in spreading Windows Phone goodness in East Asia.

The ZTE Tania is their first attempt into the market and it doesn't look half bad.

  • UMTS / HSPA + 900/2100MHz bands
  • 800 × 480 WVGA 4.3-inch TFT screen
  • 3D acceleration
  • 1GHZ processor
  • 512MB of cache
  • 4GB storage
  • 1400mAh battery
  • 5 megapixel autofocus camera
  • 10.5mm slim

The device comes in white or black and honestly, looks a lot like a Samsung Focus, which isn't a bad thing either. No word on availability, but it's probably closer than we expect.

Just a quick extension to our previous article covering some Mango device names popping up on WP Bench where they're being tested. We've received word from the app developer, Robert Varga, that a HTC Radiant has appeared on the list and is reportedly running post-Mango/7.10.8004.

Could this be Tango? Certainly looks as though we may not be seeing this device for a while (if at all). Let's see what's announced at the upcoming HTC event in London. The image above shows the HTC HD7, just in case any of you attempt to catch us out on that.

Thanks again Robert Varga for the tip!

Guess what folks? It's silly season. And Windows Phone Mango is so close.

The image you see to the right is from the excellent app WP Bench (Zune link) and it lists no less than 8 devices that are presumably new Mango phones (or variations) that are in people's hands, evidently being tested against each other. The relevant ones from the list:

Some of those are familiar, but the LG LS831 seems new, the Omega gets a number (C110e), the i937 from Samsung seems active, who knows what the "Na Na" and the "Nokia XXX" are. Anyways, nice to know these devices are getting into people's hands. [Note: LG C900x, Asus E600, Samsung GT-I8710, HTC PC93100, T8697 are older phones for developers or on the market already]

Big thanks to developer Robert Varga of WP Bench., for the screen shot!
