Images of Sony Ericsson “Vivaz 2″ phone leaked, reviewed

In the lead up to the CES for mobile phones, the Mobile World Congress, images of a new Sony Ericsson Android-powered phone – dubbed the MT15i, or the “Vivaz 2″ – have appeared online after one Russian website managed to score the phone and has done a review.
The review, by Mobile-Review.com, has confirmed that the phone will be using Android 2.3 Gingerbread, feature a 1GHz Qualcomm processor (single core, not dual core), a less-than-4-inch display and two cameras, both featuring LED flash. The rear-facing camera has an 8-megapixel lens, while the front-facing camera has an unspecified lens. The user interface is said to have been improved, with a “more balanced” design.
It also features the BRAVIA engine that Sony had been touting for its phones, and the reviewer notes that it does have some performance issues – and once we get our hands on it, if it is ever released, we will see if it does have that issue.
It’s a mid-range phone, so don’t expect high-end features such as a cloud-based solution to store your data or enterprise-level security – features found on what we saw from Motorola’s CES phones lineup – but also don’t expect it to send your family budget into overdrive.
Hopefully, it comes out during Mobile World Congress, because we do hope that it is an improvement of other phones in the current lineup.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
