01/24/2010, Folks who own a Dream or Magic will probably already know that there have been some problems with the devices recently, and as such, GPS had to be disabled on those phones. Fortunately HTC has come up with the necessary fixes for those phones, and the update is now available to the general public. The fix will solve the issue that the phones experienced with 911 calls. The good news […]
01/20/2010, It seems that the HTC Dream isn’t the only phone on Rogers’ network to be affected by the 911 bug. Next in line is the HTC Magic, and the carrier is issuing the same warning to HTC Magic owners, recommending them to disable the GPS location feature on their phones. This certainly isn’t going to be very pleasant for owners of these phones, so hopefully Rogers will get this sorted […]
01/05/2010, For those of you who are living in Canada and wondering whether you’ll be able to get your hands on Sony Ericsson’s XPERIA X10, you’re in luck. Word is out that folks in Canada will be able to pick up the phone in Q2 of 2010. The phone will be a Rogers exclusive, so if you’re not a Rogers subscriber, this bit of news might sound a little irritating to […]
12/20/2009, If you own an HTC Dream or Magic from Rogers Wireless, you might be more than a little disappointed if you were planning on upgrading your phone to Android 1.6, you’re going to have to find a non-official way to do it, as HTC has stated that it will not be releasing an official Android 1.6 upgrade for said phones. Are you planning to find some other means (like a […]
11/27/2009, Those of you who are on Rogers Wireless will be able to pick up the Nokia 6750 from the carrier. If you’ve been looking for a sleek phone with external music keys, Bluetooth stereo, microSDHC card expansion, 2.0 megapixel camera, this is probably something you’ll want to evaluate. Is the flip phone design making a comeback? You’ll have to shell out $99.99 for the phone, bundled with a 3-year contract. […]
11/25/2009, In a case that started off somewhat similar to the spat between Verizon and AT&T, it seems that the end result is vastly different. While AT&T failed to stop Verizon’s advertisements, TELUS has managed to get a temporary injunction against a series of ads from Rogers. The carrier boasted in its ads that it’s “Canada’s most reliable network” and with speeds “two times faster than any other”. Rogers had to […]
11/06/2009, Rogers Wireless of Canada could very well be the first mobile carrier in North America to make the HTC Touch2 available to the masses, at least that’s what some sources have pointed out. Word also has it that this Windows Mobile 6.5-powered smartphone will also feature several colors that won’t be considered normal for the handset. There is still no word on pricing or a launch date, so do stay […]
11/04/2009, Rogers Wireless will be rolling out the first Android-powered smartphone from LG known as the LG Eve. This model will come pre-loaded with the Social Networks Manager app, alongside an aggregate for Facebook, Twitter and Bebo, making it the smartphone that is ideal for all social media enthusiasts. Features available include a 3? touchscreen display, a sliding QWERTY keyboard, a 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and 7.2Mbps HSPA connectivity as well as […]
10/26/2009, Slowly but surely, the iPhone initial exclusive deals with select carriers around the world is fading away. Carriers have taken notice that an iPhone deal will boost their data usage (and their bottom-line), and for Apple, it’s a logical step to grab market share more rapidly than waiting (or hoping) that users will switch networks. Apple needs this to keep the pace at which iPhone has been growing.
10/02/2009, The Rocket Hub from Rogers is HSPA+ capable, and while it might seem more suitable for home use, it will be highly portable in nature (just look at it – small enough to stuff into your briefcase on your travels) and would make for a suitable solution where mobile office drones are concerned. For those who do not live in places where there is decent wireless coverage, you can always […]
09/13/2009, A leaked snapshot of The BlackBerry Curve 8520 from Rogers has been spotted. The underlying OS is listed as OS 126.96.36.1994. The device itself seems fairly clean from any Rogers branding on the outside, which might come as a blessing to many people, but we’re fairly sure that Rogers will want to stamp its authority all over this phone before it’s officially released, don’t you think?
08/05/2009, Reports about an 8GB iPhone 3GS have surfaced. This is coming unofficially from Rogers (a Canadian carrier) and from what we can tell, they are talking about making a transition from the 8GB iPhone 3G to a 8GB iPhone 3GS as the inventory for older iPhones gets depleted. The information seems believable, because Apple won’t carry the iPhone 3G forever and needed to liquidate its inventory before Making the iPhone […]
07/27/2009, Rogers is back with yet another device for those who want to remain connected at all times without having to look out for Wi-Fi signs, thanks to the Sony Ericsson MD400g which will come in a variety of plans. You can pick it up for nothing if you decide to stick to a 3 and 2 year plan with a $24.99 monthly bill, or pick it up outright at $199.99 […]
06/23/2009, Folks living in Canada will finally be able to get hold of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic via Rogers, where the handset will be going for $199.99 (in Canadian dollars, of course). Just in case your memory fails you on what the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic offers, well it packs in a 3.2-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens, autofocus capability and dual LED flash, 3.6Mbps HSDPA connectivity, Wi-Fi support, GPS navigation […]
