09/09/2010, We’re still quite a long way off from having holographic technology on everyday consumer devices, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dream about it.

09/09/2010, Apple’s Newton might not have succeeded back in its day, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be revived in this day and age with a little help from the iPhone. A modder out there has managed to cram Apple’s iPhone into the Newton, coming up with a franken-newton-iPhone device. It’s a cool idea, and it’s one that will definitely make your iPhone stand out amongst the rest.

The G2 is manufactured by HTC, but it sticks to Google’s standard interface instead of HTC’s Sense UI. Pre-orders will begin later this month and specifications of the […]
09/08/2010, T-Mobile does seem to like to tease us with its G2 news, and after launching a teaser site for its upcoming Android-powered HSPA+ phone, the carrier has tweeted in binary that some G2 news is on its way. We already know that HTC is scheduled to hold a media event in London to unveil some new products, whether that will include the T-Mobile G2 remains to be seen, but we’re […]
09/08/2010, TomTom is doing its bit to maintain a good relationship with its customers. If you happened to pick up the TomTom Car Kit for iPhone and recently upgraded to the iPhone 4, you’ll probably have noticed that the slimmer iPhone 4 doesn’t necessarily enjoy sitting on the car kit.

09/08/2010, Fred Devereaux, AT&T President of Wireless Operations in the U.S. West, expressed surprised that sales of the carrier’s U.S. exclusive BlackBerry Torch were not better given the fact that the device is the best BlackBerry to date, in Devereaux’s personal opinion. Though Devereaux did not give official sales number, subsequent remarks suggest that Apple’s iPhone 4 and the carrier’s flagship Android device–the Samsung Captivate–may be to blame for slow sales […]

09/08/2010, While multi-touch is dependent on hardware support, let’s not forget that software support is incredibly important too. Samsung’s i5700 is officially only able to support one finger input at a time, but someone has managed to come up with a hack that will allow multi-touch to operate on the i5700, proving that the lack of multi-touch support on the phone is purely due to the lack of software support, instead […]
