01/21/2010, The BlackBerry Curve 8530 has finally launched on Rogers’ network, so for those of you who have been waiting forever to get a new phone, this might be your chance. The carrier is offering the phone for $499, but after you factor in the $360 online discount, $100 mail-in rebate, you’re getting the phone for just $39.99. Do you think the deal is sweet enough to make you switch phones?
01/21/2010, It seems that just a day after it filed for the Bada OS trademark, Samsung went back and filed for a “Samsung Vita OS” trademark (on Oct 22nd 2009). The Vita OS trademark seems quite similar to the Bada OS, not to mention they’re both related to “mobile phones; mobile phone operating system software installed on mobile phones”. Perhaps it’s a backup plan by Samsung in the event that there […]
01/21/2010, How would you like a BlackBerry Bold that sports a touchscreen? There isn’t such a device on the market yet, but it seems that RIM is considering something along those lines. Leaked pictures of a prototype BlackBerry have surfaced, showing a Bold-looking device that has a touchscreen. Apparently this design has been ditched in favor of something nicer, and we certainly wouldn’t mind nicer stuff. When do you think RIM […]
01/21/2010, You might have noticed the tag on recent tweets reading “from Danger” a short while ago, which shouldn’t be too big of an issue, except that tweets from a Sidekick will state “from Sidekick” at the end, not Danger. This has prompted many folks to speculate that there is some truth in the recurring Microsoft Pink/Phone rumors. Could Microsoft be coming up with its own top-secret phone that uses Danger’s technology? […]
01/21/2010, Apple has filed a patent application for a portable device in the line of an iPod or iPhone which will feature solar cells that can harness the power of the sun to keep it juiced up so that you can make that extra phone call to close the multi-million dollar deal that you’ve long gone after. The system is also capable of monitoring the current battery state to decide whether […]
01/21/2010, Hmmm, with such an obvious screenshot of the Motorola Calgary/Devour making an appearance on Verizon’s system, it would be pretty safe to say that the smartphone will be making its way to the mentioned carrier in due time. Guess there is still time for you to make sure that you have enough balance in your bank to make a purchase if this is the handset of your dreams, otherwise you […]
01/21/2010, The upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) will be the platform where Garmin-Asustek’s Android-powered collaboration take the centerstage, and it won’t be the last one for 2010 either as there will be another four to five new new Windows Mobile or Android phones targeted to roll out this year. Rumor has it that this Garmin-Asustek partnership will feature a 600MHz Qualcomm processor, a 3.5″ resistive touchscreen display at 800 x 480 […]
01/21/2010, NTT DoCoMo will be rolling out its very own version of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, which is a pretty rare thing to do in Japan by its mobile carriers. Dubbed the “Smartphone Xperia,” this is the maiden effort from a major carrier anywhere that announced a branded deal on the set. You will get a similar customized Android skin on this Sony Ericsson smartphone, alongside all other notable hardware […]
01/21/2010, Nokia dropped the bomb on Personal Navigation Devices makers by announcing the availability of “free navigation” for its family of smartphones, globally. This means that navigation packages with turn-by-turn directions inside that cover 74 countries in 46 languages alongside detailed maps for 180 countries are now available for free. Those packages used to cost between $70 and $100 just yesterday.
01/21/2010, Here’s a live snapshot of the HTC Bravo which will ship with the latest Android build – version 2.1, that is. Everything else about its specifications can be seen in our previous post earlier this month, and you can fork out £35 each month without having to fork out a single cent for it in the beginning, although this would mean tying yourself down to a 2-year contract. In the […]
01/21/2010, Motorola revealed that they plan to roll out 20 to 30 Android-powered smartphones before 2010 is over, and we do admit that that’s a whole lot of handsets ready to hit the market. Among them will probably be the MOTOROI, Motorola Shadow and Motorola BackFlip, leaving at least 17 more phones that we don’t know about. While some of these will be made available only in local markets, others could […]
01/21/2010, The Sony Ericsson Vivaz seemed to have hit the market earlier than expected, where it will be equipped with an 8-megapixel shooter and a 3.2″ WVGA touchscreen display. Apparently, Sony Ericsson has yet to drop the Symbian operating system just yet in favor of Android, but they will release the Vivaz in Europe as well as Asia later this quarter for around $670 to $750. At that price point, we’re […]
01/21/2010, True to their word, T-Mobile has made available their myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition handset on both online and at its physical stores. This variant comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack as well as a 16GB microSDHC memory card to get you started off with a musical bang, featuring music from artists such as Eric Clapton and Wyclef Jean. Behind, you get a Fender-like wood effect finish. The Fender Limited […]
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 […]
