It has been a month or so since the release of HTC Thunderbolt LTE, yet there was no teardown report of this awesome smartphone. We normally expect iFixit team to release such teardowns but this time FCC released some images of HTC Thunderbolt teardown. Though the images are not as good as a iFixit release, still these images give us a fair bit of idea how such a thin and "not so big" device manages to pack such power-packed features. The most interesting aspect of this teardown is to see the placement of EVDO and LTE antennas, among other things. In of of the pictures we can clearly see a Qualcomm MDM9600 processor. One can also see iNAND flash memory by Sandisk and Samsung. Continue reading "FCC Approved HTC Thunderbolt Teardown | Reveals Expected"
Samsung has launched , Galaxy Pro, a new QWERTY keypad smart phone. This smart phone is not in the same line as galaxy s phones, which are complete touch screen.

This is more like a blackberry phone, probably Samsung is aiming at the blackberry segment itself. Specification wise it beats (or at least stands equal) any Blackberry phone, a touch screen gives it an edge over similarly priced Blackberry phone which have only a trackball for navigation.
