08/03/2010, We know that the Motorola Droid (also known as the Milestone in Europe) has started to receive Over The Air (OTA) updates where the Android 2.2 update is concerned, but for those who prefer to do things manually, you can check out the steps listed below. Bear in mind that it will work only for non-rooed stock 2.1 users. 1. Download this file: update.zip or direct from the Google link2. […]
08/03/2010, It seems that it isn’t the Dell Streak but the BlackBerry Torch which will be featured in the mystery AT&T monolith display that we talked about last week, appearing in several AT&T stores around the country. Since there is no more mystery involved on the said device (also known as the BlackBerry Bold 9800), why not head on to our BlackBerry Torch hands-on page for your reading pleasure?
08/03/2010, RIM isn’t having it too good at all in the Middle East, with UAE already banning the BlackBerry unless it complies to the country’s security and privacy laws, and now Saudi Arabia is following suit by calling on telecoms firms in the country to block the messenger function on BlackBerry handsets from Friday onwards. This ban will last until all three phone operators “fulfil the regulatory requirements it has requested”. […]
08/03/2010, Verizon Wireless could have something very interesting for eligible consumers in Texas as well as Louisiana markets, offering what they call “Unlimited Any Mobile plans.” It seems that certain eligible consumers have the option to sign up for a single line Nationwide Unlimited Talk plan that enables them to call and send text, picture and video messages to virtually anyone in the US regardless of service provider, where they can […]
08/03/2010, HTC’s Sync version 3.0 will now boast a new media sync feature which allows HTC smartphone owners to synchronize their music playlists among others to a computer using an USB connection. While HTC Sync 3.0 currently plays nice only with the HTC Wildfire (that already arrives with Android 2.2 on board in China), HTC will be rolling out a new version of Sync down the road for devices powered by […]
08/03/2010, We all know that the Blackberry Torch (aka Bold 9800) has just been released on an official capacity, whereby it will run on the BlackBerry 6 OS in order to separate itself from the rest of the pack. Unfortunately for the older BlackBerry touchscreen devices, it doesn’t sound too positive from the press release concerning the BlackBerry OS 6 that it will play nice with the previous generation of smartphones. […]
08/03/2010, Research in Motion’s latest smartphone, the slider BlackBerry Torch (also known as the BlackBerry 9800), will be arriving on AT&T and hitting the market this August 12th for $199.99 a pop if you decide to agree to a 2-year contract, of course. Needless to say, it will run on the new BlackBerry OS 6 while featuring specifications which will surely make it the most advanced BlackBerry to date. It will […]
08/03/2010, I just played with the Blackberry Torch, and here are my first impressions: physically, it builds on the design of the Bold 9700, so you will find similar features and the form factor is comparable, although a little thicker, due to the sliding keyboard. It is amazingly light. In fact, it is as light as the Bold 9700, and according to Blackberry, the battery life is as good as the […]
08/03/2010, Pictures of the Galaxy U have surfaced, with the device being pictured next to the Samsung Galaxy S. We already know that SK Telecom offers a version of the Galaxy S, but now its rivals LG U+ and KT are both working on variants of their own, dubbed Galaxy U and Galaxy K, which is probably a tribute to the carriers’ names. Despite sharing a similar name to the Galaxy […]
08/03/2010, Looks like someone might have jumped the gun at AT&T, as the official site for the BlackBerry Torch 9800 has gone live just before the scheduled press conference which is (probably) going to be about said device. From the site, the specifications of the device have been confirmed as:
08/03/2010, If you want to know what Blackberry and AT&T are announcing *right now* head to live.ubergizmo.com, as we’re posting live from the event. Later, more details and additional photos will be posted on the normal site (ubergizmo.com) as we gather more content at the event.
08/03/2010, RIM’s BlackBerry 9800 slider should be announced pretty soon, possibly as soon as the RIM/AT&T event kicks off at 11am eastern. The device seems to have taken a last minute detour to pay a visit to the FCC, with mentions of the 9800 appearing in forms such as “MultiSourceDeclaration_9800_”, and the device being tested with its slider opened and closed, there isn’t much to refute that this is the BlackBerry […]
08/03/2010, We have previously seen Google’s Android 2.2 FroYo crammed into the juicy HTC HD2 before this, but during the previous iteration, it was quite buggy and had various issues. Now the folks behind it have come up with an updated ROM, one which seems to perfect the Android experience on the HD2. You can check out a video of it in action after the jump. That being said, do bear […]
08/03/2010, Owners of the Samsung Vibrant or Captivate from T-Mobile and AT&T respectively might have noticed that the A-GPS on the device wasn’t functioning properly, and many users out there seem to have experienced the same issue. While there are certain workarounds to the situation at the moment, they aren’t ideal, and don’t really solve the issue. While there hasn’t been an official fix for it just yet, there is some […]
