Those slinky sources of Engadget Mobile's have provided the site with an "in the wild" picture of what the site calls the "BlackBerry Onyx," a smartphone that takes the Bold's original lines and kicks them up a notch, so to speak:The device is rumored to be a 3G-enabled GSM BlackBerry heading for AT&T, with a similar UMA-enabled sister phone ("Driftwood") going to T-Mobile.
Back in October I had the chance to check out the Palm Centro for Sprint and thought it was a very good device for the new smartphone buyer. Since that time I know several people that have purchased one and love the device. AT&T and Palm today announced the availability of the Palm Centro from AT&T. The device has the same design and specifications as the Sprint Palm Centro, but unfortunately lacks a 3G radio. It is a quad-band GSM device with support for the EDGE data network. The first model available is the Glacier white model with green highlights with an Obsidian black model becoming available in about a month. The device is available today starting at US$99.99 with 2-year service agreement and for those looking to move from a feature phone to a smartphone I think this is a decent choice available at a good price.
I enjoyed the short time I spent with the Palm Cento from Sprint and have actually recommended it to a few people who fit the profile for the device. These people actually LOVE the device and are pleased I told them about this compact smartphone. There is a GSM version available now from Vodafone in Europe and rumors of a GSM version eventually coming to the U.S. Most rumors had the device coming to AT&T in the U.S., but now Engadget Mobile has posted a photo of a Centro with the T-Mobile logo on it so we may see it from T-Mobile as well.

I said there would be a ton of announcements from 3GSM this week and if your head isn't already spinning with the speed and number of device announcements then get ready for another one. Research in Motion announced the BlackBerry 8800. The BlackBerry 8800 is the thinnest BlackBerry device and yet features their famous QWERTY keyboard and the trackball navigation system similar to the Pearl. Integrated GPS and a microSD expansion slot are also packed into this slim device. The BlackBerry 8800 comes with BlackBerry Maps that work with the integrated GPS radio to provide driving directions to your desired destination. The device sports a 320x240 landscape color display.The quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE smartphone will be available worldwide starting this month.
HP has had Pocket PC Phone Edition Mobile Messenger devices for a couple of years, but they have never really seemed to have taken off. HP continues to try to compete in the mobile market and is launching their HP iPAQ 500 series Voice Messenger. The Voice Messenger is a Windows Mobile 6 Standard device (aka Smartphone) and looks to also have a 1.3 megapixel camera. The HP Voice Messenger is capitalizing on the increasing popularity of VoIP and includes capabilities and integrated WiFi for this functionality. HP is also including a powerful voice command system that actually allows you to reply to email by dictating and sending a voice response without the need for any typing. GSM/EDGE and Bluetooth radios are also included on the device. The new HP Voice Messenger should be available this Spring, but you can check out our image gallery in the meantime.

Cicero Networks' softphone provides access to VoIP services over Wi-Fi and GSM networks from a single dialler.
