As we are gearing up to welcome 2010, cell phone freaks might be wondering what surprises cell phone makers have in store for them in the New Year. Although, official confirmations might be missing, but nonetheless, the rumor mill is full of news of some stunning phones that would be launched next year.
Nexus One Google Phone
What we knew as Google phones for so long were smartphones running on the Google’s Android operating system. In 2010, Google will launch its own exclusive phone christened Nexus One. This phone will run on the Android 2.1 platform. To give the Acer Android phones a run for their money, Nexus One will be powered by the super fast snapdragon processor. It will sport a 3.7 inches AMOLED touch screen, 5 megapixel camera and 3G connectivity.
We are expecting to see some new BlackBerry phones, which would probably be the upgraded versions of popular BlackBerry products. The updated version of BlackBerry Tour will arrive on Verizon wireless as BlackBerry Essex or BlackBerry Tour 2. The upgraded version of BlackBerry Bold will be launched as BlackBerry Striker 9100.
When Motorola Blackflip hits the stores in 2010, AT&T will get its first Android powered phone. Backflip might not be as stunning as the Motorola Droid, but this upcoming phone powered by 528MHz processor, and running on the Android 1.5 operating system is a smart device that we are waiting to see next year. It will feature a 3.1 inch display, a reverse flip keyboard with touchpad, 5 megapixel camera equipped with LED flash, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi and 512MB internal storage space.
Motorola Calgary or Devour A55
This Motorola Android 2.1 phone will run on the Verizon network. It will feature the latest Motoblur user interface, QWERTY keyboard, 3MP camera and micro SD slot.
Samsung Corby Pop
Thanks to Samsung, by launching its Corby series phones it has brought the touchscreen phones within the reach of cell phone shoppers on tight budget. In 2010, you can expect to see the cheapest Samsung Corby phone, named Corby Pop. The new member of the Corby family will feature the same 2.8 inches touch display. However, Samsung has scaled down the resolution of the phone’s camera to 1.2 megapixel.
