The Mivvy One – another Windows Mobile smartphone
We are beginning to get the odd feeling that when a manufacturer decides to embark on the smartphone market, what they typically do is pick the first operating system that came their way (Android seems to be preferred, if anything it comes first alphabetically), put the minimum effort required to complete the task as soon as they can and boldly venture forth waiting for a miracle. We don´t want to believe this is the proper strategy, but only time will tell...

It seems the Czech company Mivvy decided to tread down the same path as well. So far the only devices they have manufactured are dual-SIM feature phones. The company´s first smartphone will be called the One, runs Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and features 3.2-inch touch-sensitive screen, 3-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi support to make up for the lack of 3G functionality, microSD slot, Bluetooth and GPS. The processor is a mid-range 624MHz Marvell PXA300 and just like most similar devices, the handset will come equipped with 128MB RAM and 256MB ROM. The only thrilling thing about the device is its interface, called Yrgo that at least acoording to Mobile-Review is the Czech version of the famous SPB Mobile Shell.


The Mivvy One will hit the shelves at a retail price of $380 and will be released soon, at least in the Czech Republic.

Actually, 2daysoft yrgo is quite different from SPB Mobile Shell. It's a very interesting-looking today screen replacement that allows up to 64 desktops filled with user-specified gadgets. It can even put Windows Mobile Today Screen plugins on any desktop in a gadget. Seehttp://www.2daysoft.com/ for more information about yrgo.

I don't know about their new model, but I have had two dual SIM phones made by Mivvy and they are the worst phones I have ever bought. On both of them the USB port cover would not stay put - I had to glue it in position. That is a minor problem, a much worse problem is that the charging connection doesn't work. The jack had to be wobbled around to find a position where the current was getting through, and then the cable had to be taped in position to make sure it didn't move. Eventually of course the cable snapped. I thought it was all my fault so I bought another one and the same things happened. Port cover wouldn't stay in place, impossible to charge. It is a pitty because otherwise they are neat and do everything that a dual SIM phone is expected to do. Maybe someone from Mivvy would like to react?
