Only a few months after the launch of the Nokia X6 comes its more compact sibling in the form of a 16GB model. The original X6 had 32GB of storage and has Comes with Music built-in, while the smaller model does not. Still, it retains that nice 3.2-inch wide-screen touch display from its bigger brother, plus it has the series 60 Symbian operating system, a 5.0-megapixel camera, dual-LED flash, it’s quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G, a Web browser with Flash Lite, GPS, and more.

It also comes in four finishes: white with yellow, white with pink, all white, and all black. The new X6 is compatible with the new Ovi Maps, which offers free turn-by-turn navigation.

According to Nokia, the new X6 will be available sometime early this year.

Palm Pre Plus, Palm Pixi Plus reviewed

Palm didn’t make quite as big of a splash at CES 2010 as it did the previous year, but the company still had plenty of news to share, including the introduction of the Palm Pre Plus and the Palm Pixi Plus.

Both WebOS devices will be launching on Verizon Wireless on January 25 and bring improvements over their Sprint counterparts. The
Palm Pre Plus is the more exciting of the two, offering double the memory, a more streamlined design, and a better keyboard than the original Pre. Meanwhile, the Pixi Plus didn’t receive a makeover, but it did get the one major feature addition: Wi-Fi.

We’ve had a chance to check out both smartphones for a couple of days now, and though the changes might not be as dramatic or as exciting as some might have hoped for, they are a step in the right direction. The Palm Pre Plus will cost $149.99 with a two-year contract and after $100 mail-in rebate, while the Palm Pixi Plus will cost $99.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate. Verizon will also be having a promotion through February 14 where if you buy a Palm Pre Plus or a Palm Pixi Plus, you can get a Pixi Plus for free after a mail-in rebate. Pique your interest did we? Well then, find out more about these devices in our full reviews, which includes information about the new Palm Mobile Hot spot app and data plans.

CES: Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 available this spring

LAS VEGAS–We stopped by the Sony Ericsson booth at CES 2010 to catch a glimpse of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (check out Kent German’s hands-on impressions here), but we also happened to stumble upon the Xperia X2. Remember that Windows Mobile smartphone announced a while ago? Yeah, we almost forgot about it too.

We took the opportunity to ask Sony Ericsson about it and representatives quietly revealed that the Xperia X2 will be available from SonyStyle stores this spring. Company representatives didn’t provide a specific release date or pricing, but hopefully, it won’t be as exorbitant as the Xperia X1. Check out some of our hands-on photos of the X2 in the gallery.
