T-Mobile Pulse and the 9 Panel Homescreen [Videos]


The T-Mobile Pulse is now official but most of us haven’t gotten a really good look at what its all about. But look what the robot drug in – a few videos of the T-Mobile Pulse that reveal some interesting things about the phone:

9 Panel Homescreen
The typical “stock” Android phones have three horizontal “panels” which to store your app icons/shortcuts while phone’s with HTC Sense offer 7 horizontal panels and different User Profiles – called Scenes – to organize what you want. It appears the T-Mobile Pulse offers a 3rd variant offering 9 panels arranged in a 3×3 grid. This is an interesting new option and I’m wondering if it was carrier or manufacturer behind this customization:

One thing that worries me a bit is the END of the above video. When flicking through contacts you can see a bit of lag as the contacts continue to scroll WELL after the flick… but clearly too long after. I hope this isn’t a persistent problem.

And some more videos for those that can’t get enough:

  1. great phone too bad it most likely wont show up in the U.S.

  2. Arrgh. I WANT this.
    This is really a step in the direction that I want. I really hope it’s not over the top expensive. If it’s not, this thing is walking in my door immediately.

  3. Why is nobody showing the keyboard. Didnt they say it was going to be some special kind of keyboard. I want to see what kind.

  4. none of the videos show how the keyboard on the 3.5 screen.
    Anyway this looks really nice.

  5. I’m mainly just excited about the larger screen. My only complaint on the current Androids

  6. is this the one that will have UMA?

  7. I guess im the only one who doesnt like it

  8. I NEED this phone. Wow that thing is beautiful.

  9. Am I the only one who counts 6, not 9, home screens?

  10. Keyboard is in this picture:
    (only widescreen though)

    About the homescreens, it’s a bit weird. It looks like a 3×3 grid at first, but somehow it’s not. But then again it does have a center home screen which seems to be the standard screen. I dunno, I’m confused. It’s still a hot phone.

  11. Anyone else realized that the landscape keyboard does not cover the whole screen? I would say it is a nice improvement!

  12. I also saw that there are only 6 screens. The central screen is in the upper middle

  13. @Alvin

  14. ’m mainly just excited about the larger screen. My only complaint on the current Androids
