The Nokia X has been listed at an online retailer in Vietnam as the Nokia X A110. The listed price is between 2.2 million and 2.5 million VND. That equates to roughly $110. To give you a point of reference, the same site has the Nokia Lumia 525 (Windows Phone) for 3.39 million or $160, but it also has 512MB more RAM and an extra 4GB of internal storage.
It was a few weeks ago when (former) Motorola CES Dennis Woodside said that they would like to offer a smartphone for $50. We are just about there folks.
The retailer in question is in the source links below, but we can’t seem to find the listing. Nokia might have forced them to remove it.

A few days ago we got a brief (and suspicious) look at a Nexus 5 page on the Google Play Store that appeared to suggest that Google was readying quite a large colour palette for their flagship smartphone. While a lot of discussion has gone on regarding the integrity of this source, a much more concrete source has cropped up in the last few hours; the above photo shows a red Nexus 5 in all its glory, allegedly a sample of a larger roll-out in Vietnam in late February or early March.
The report also states that Vietnam will also be receiving a yellow version of the Nexus 6 alongside the red variant, but didn’t state what other regions would be receiving coloured versions. I assume this could be some kind of colour coordination to match the country’s flag, but the report also could be fake. Whatever the truth it, it is all very overwhelming that all these reports of coloured Nexus 5s are coming in left, right and centre. What do you think is the truth: are there going to be coloured variants of the Nexus 5 coming out soon? Let us know what you think.

By 2015, Samsung will no longer have a manufacturing plant in China. Instead, according to Bloomberg, the company is relocating to Vietnam “to secure even lower wages and defend profit margins as growth in sales of high-end handsets slows.” As many of us know, large companies like Samsung manufacturer in countries where wages are low to maintain high margins. The plant, which cost $2 billion to build, will open in February and reach full production in 2015. This new plant will account for 40% of the smartphones in Samsung’s operating profit. China’s higher wages are driving companies away and Vietnam is becoming more cost-effective.
Upon reaching full production, it is believed that the Vietnam plant will be able to generate 120 million handsets every year. To do this, Samsung is tapping into Vietnam’s young work force that is very well-educated and stable. Lee Jung Soon of the Korean Trade-Investment Promotion Agency told Bloomberg that “’the handset business is all about assembling well-sourced components’” and Vietnam’s manpower can handle the task. Another plus for the move is that Samsung is much closer to Vietnam in terms of its supply chain.

Keep in mind that nothing is set in stone until the official unveiling of BlackBerry 10 on January 30th, but it seems that a lucky soul in Vietnam has captured the clearest look yet of the device that’ll “reinstall faith in RIM.” These seemingly legitimate snapshots of the L-Series reveal an attractive touchscreen slab that features a removable back cover — complete with an NFC antenna — which also provides access to the phone’s micro-SIM and microSD slots, along with a removable 1,800mAh battery. Fans of the unique play / pause toggle will find it happily sitting within the metallic volume rocker, and you’ll also notice micro-USB and micro-HDMI ports occupying the left-hand side. With such a clean design, we can only hope that RIM can keep the carrier’s requests for customization at bay — some of ‘em straight up don’t have a knack for aesthetics. Be sure to follow the break for a couple extra peeks of this oft-leaked device, or hit up the source link below for the full gallery.

Indeed, the Curve 9320′s been anything but shy in these past couple of months. First, it was spotted while on a purported trip to India and shortly after that posing for T-Mobile’s UK site. Now, the BlackBerry handset has been pampered by a full hands-on treatment from the Vietnamese folks over at Sohoa. Unlike its other adventures, though, this one presents far less speculation. As we’d previously heard, the device is in fact running BlackBerry OS 7.1, as well as being equipped with that undisclosed single-core CPU, 512MB of RAM, 3.2-megapixel rear shooter and a 1450mAh battery. Per the translation, Sohoa also notes the Curve 9320 offers a “better keyboard” and is thinner than the rest of the Curve lineup. There’s an extra photo for your viewing pleasure after the break, but for the entire rundown be sure to check out the the source link below.

Whoa, there. We’re still weeks away from an official big stage unveiling, but it looks like Samsung’s next Galaxy phone is already out there. Vietnamese site Tinhte, which has past form on these kind of things, has got it hands on the GT-I9300 — purportedly the Galaxy S III if Samsung decides to follow its own naming convention. According to the specifications leaked, the phone houses a 4.6-inch display at 720 x 1184 resolution (320 DPI, depending on whether you include those on-screen Android buttons), while a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor works on keeping the Ice Cream Sandwich OS running smoothly. Other hardware mentions include 1GB of RAM, 8-megapixel camera, 16GB of storage plus microSD capability.
According to Tinhte, the 2,050mAh battery will arrive with NFC capabilities baked in, like the Galaxy Nexus before it. There’s an iffy plastic rim surrounding to the whole device that has apparently been added not to ruin the surprise of how the device looks ahead of its official launch. While we’ve seen some similar hardware leaks already, this video makes a very strong case for it being the real deal. Take a look for yourself right after the break, alongside a picture of the back.
Update: It looks our source link has disappeared and the video has now gone private. Fortunately, we grabbed our own copy of the video and you can find it below.
Update 2: We reached out to Samsung for a comment, and here’s the not-so-surprising response:
“We will be able to tell you more at the 2012 Samsung Mobile Unpacked.”

Notice something a bit different in the image above? You should. Those are the all new, all white versions of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 7.0 Plus, as spotted in Vietnam. A tipster sent these images in to GSMArena and that’s about all we have at this moment, no mention of pricing and availability.
Yes, you can currently get white versions of these tabs, but if you will recall, the bezel is still black (image below). In my opinion, a black bezel provides for a better multimedia experience and allows the display’s border to blend into the screen — providing more of an unobtrusive viewing experience. Either way, once these tablets hit the market I imagine they will still sell like hotcakes. I mean look how widely successful the all white iPad has been.
As far as specs go, these white G Tabs will remain unchanged, according to GSMArena. I also presume the price tags will remain the same as well. To see a full gallery of pictures, jump past the break.
So what do you think? Is an all white tablet in your future, or do you prefer a black bezel? Let us know in the comments below.
This is based on a relatively simple idea, if you have served our country you should be at least shown some appreciation. That is the idea behind the Veteran’s Advantage Card created by a Vietnam Army veteran by the name of H. Scott Higgins.
The Veteran’s Advantage card works the same way that some college advantage cards do, and even AARP. If you’re in the military or retired military it’s a discount card where certain companies extend discounts for your service. In the case of Verizon Wireless Veteran’s with a Veteran’s Advantage Vet Rewards card will receive a 15% discount on monthly plans with an access fee of $34.99 or higher or a data add on of $24.99 or higher.
More after the break
Veterans can also use their Vet Rewards card to get 25% off accessories in Verizon Wireless corporate owned stores. The savings on accessories really start adding up.
“With the addition of Verizon Wireless to the list of companies recognizing the Veterans Advantage Card, cardholders now have a one-stop savings solution with the nation’s premier wireless carrier,” said H. Scott Higgins, founder and chief executive officer of Veterans Advantage, and an Army Vietnam veteran.
Verizon Wireless started accepting the Vet Rewards cards this Tuesday.
