I’ve never heard of a cellphone with a built-in, out-of-the-box, fake call function – but apparently it’s available on a bunch of Samsung phones (including the Samsung Tocco). Pretty hilarious to have it factory made. Sure, there’s a bunch of Android and iPhone fake call apps but pretty far from built-in. They even suggest how to use it, haha:
“You can simulate an incoming call when you want to get out of meetings or unwanted conversations”
Today I got one of the latest phones from Nokia in the mail and I just wanted to share the unboxing experience with you guys. The 7900 Crystal Prism is designed by the French artist Frédérique Daubal and I am not sure why I got one since it is a fashion phone for women, but anyway here is the gallery.

Dolby is about to launch an adaption of their Dolby headphone tecnhology called ‘Dolby Mobile’. It’s an application that runs in the background while you listen to music or catch a flick on your phone. Currently it’s Symbian only but that will most probably change.
When paired with a decent set of headphones, the Dolby signal processing is really amazing.

The famous Pwnage iPhone unlocking tool is now officially launched. Currently there is only a Mac version available but the press release lets us know that a Windows version will be out within 24 hours. Basically the application will hack your iPhones firmware and use it in any compatible cellphone network and run any compatible software.
The fact that Apple is working on the 3G version of the iPhone is hardly news to anyone, but it might come as a surprise to some of us that we might get it as soon as June 2008. Macrumors has put together all the 3G rumors in one story.

Modu mini phone just made it into the Guiness Book of World Records as the lightest mobile phone in the world. The phone weighs a mere 1.4 ounces / 39.7 grams. It is pretty ugly though!
Mixing brands to create more interesting products has been a popular thing the last couple of years. We have seen Ferrari laptops, Armani and Prada mobiles, and other similar produts. The latest one is the ZX1 Lamborghini phone from Asus. It is based completely on Asus technology and runs Windows Mobile 6.1. It will be available in Europe in May for $1500.

Gizmodo shot some video today of Sony Ericssons upcoming jewel XPERIA X1 and it looks like they have a loooong way to go until they are ready with the software. It is no way near Sony Ericssons prepared video and here is what Gizmodo’s Brian Lam has to say about it after playing around with the demo phone:
Screw this thing, guys. The dude was so proud, and rightfully so…and then I asked to see the dialpad and he shrunk away from that. It was the stock winmo dialpad.
