Thursday´s News Bits
  • A new way of activating the MMS feature on the iPhone. To do it, you would need a computer running OS X, Windows 2000, XP or Vista and some free time. Allegedly, the whole thing takes about 3 minutes and the precise succession of what needs to be done can be found via the source link. Take a look if you´d rather not wait until 25 September, when AT&T is expected to officially release the feature. (source: Gear Live)

  • The HTC Leo has been spotted in the product catalogue of Telstra Australia. The powerful Windows Mobile smartphone featuring 4.3-inch display got spotted on the web page where you can request automatic MMS settings for your device. We do find it a bit odd that settings for a handset that hasn´t been officially announced yet can be found on a carrier´s official web page. Does this mean it´s coming soon? Say, on 6 September when Windows Mobile 6.5 takes off? (source: wmpoweruser)

  • The Nokia 5530 XpressMusic got itself FlashLite 3.1. This means support for Flash Player 9 and ActionScript 2.0 or in other words, improved playback of online audio and video streams. Users who have already got it haven´t noticed any substancial improvement, but the update comes completely free of charge anyway, so why not give it a shot? (source: ZOMG its CJ)

  • Hello Kitty versions of the Samsung Star S5230 and E2210 are rolling out in Belgium. One of the most famous cats will grace the popular handset with touch sensitive screen and its affordable clamshell sibling. The their prices are $250 and $100 respectively and we can imagine long, winding lines of girls biting their nails to get one of these. (source: Samsung Hub)

Sadly, i'd rather have a hello kitty phone than an iPhone. At least i'd be able to stay connected to a network and make a call on it. I (and many others too) are sick of hearing about the "media darling" iPhone. It's for kids and people who are bored, or who lack enough self conscience to the point where they need a phone to up their status. Sheesh. Roll out the Hello Kitty lol.
