12/07/2009, It seems like that is some bad news for TELUS employees, though if you’re involved you probably already know if it. TELUS has announced 125 job cuts from its business solutions division, and it seems that the cuts are at management level only. A representative for TELUS said: “With the recession other businesses are experiencing layoffs, some businesses are shutting down, and there are fewer phone customers. The telecommunications industry […]
12/07/2009, It looks like Nokia has released an update for its Ovi Mail Setup. In case you didn’t know, this application allows users to setup an Ovi Mail account directly on their S60 devices. The new version extends device support, fixes a couple of bugs and is localized in 18 different languages. You won’t need to upgrade if you’re already running Ovi Mail on your Nokia S60 phone, but if you […]
12/07/2009, The folks over at Verizon Wireless might be sweating a little over the FCC’s recent interest in their ETF (early termination fees). The fact that Verizon Wireless recently doubled some of its early termination fees probably doesn’t put the company in favorable light either. One of the questions the FCC has posed include “if a customer cancels a two-year contract after 23 months, the customer would still owe an ETF […]
12/07/2009, Here’s something that parents around the world probably won’t be too happy about. Android now has an adult app market, dubbed MiKandi. While there isn’t anything stopping folks from browsing adult sites on Android’s browser, the Android Market doesn’t have an adult section, and that’s probably what the folks behind MiKandi are looking to target. Any type of adult content will be allowed on the MiKandi Market, as long as […]
12/07/2009, Could the Pink colored Palm Pixi be real? Leaked screenshots that are busy making rounds on the Internet indicate that there is a strong possibility that the phone might be real. If you were to check out Sprint’s buyback page, there is also existence of a pink Palm Pixi (at time of writing). Girls, would you go for a pink colored Palm Pixi if Sprint were to release it?
12/07/2009, If paying even $30 for HTC’s Android-powered Droid Eris was too much for you, you might be interested to know that Phandroid is offering the HTC Droid Eris for free. Granted, you’ll need to be a new Verizon Wireless customer in order to take advantage of this deal, but you can’t argue much with a free phone, right? Just don’t forget to check out the commitment to the phone plan, […]
12/07/2009, Bell will be launching the Nokia N97 (at long last) this coming December 10th, although there is still no information on pricing just yet but the situation ought to change pretty soon. Guess our friends living in the Great White North will just have to be a little bit patient, and if you know anyone who is hankering after the Nokia N97 this Christmas, you no longer have the excuse […]
12/07/2009, Just before you pooh-pooh the efforts of churning out the first Nintendo64 emulator for the iPhone known as the 3G4 , bear in mind it was coded by a 14-year old developer. Yes, at an age where kids are busy playing video games and trading naughty magazines with each other, along comes one who has the brains to code an entire emulator. This is the first native Nintendo64 emulator for […]
12/07/2009, It looks like HTC is going to put a lot of effort into Android-powered phones in 2010. Considering that Google’s Android is riding a wave of popularity, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. A leaked list of what should be HTC’s phones in the first half of 2010 has surfaced online, and it certainly looks interesting. The list of phones includes the Bravo, Legend, Salsa, Tide, Buzz, Photon, […]
12/06/2009, It seems that Creative’s Zii Trinity is a rather capable device. Based on the video here it seems to handle outputting HD video rather well. The snippet of Wall-E isn’t seen for very long, but you get the idea. Are you looking forward to the Creative Zii Trinity?
12/06/2009, We mentioned the Motorola Opus One a few months back, which should be Motorola’s first Android iDEN cell phone. While there haven’t been any official pictures released just yet, the folks over at Boy Genius have managed to dig up some pictures of what is supposedly the Opus One. Specifications of the phone haven’t been confirmed yet, but based on the pictures that have surfaced, what do you think?
12/06/2009, While the general idea is that Sony Ericsson’s XPERIA X10 will be heading to AT&T, some new information seems to indicate that this highly anticipated phone could be available in 2 variants, thus hitting both AT&T and T-Mobile. How much do you think AT&T and T-Mobile would be willing to subsidize this rather expensive mobile phone?
12/06/2009, Folks who own a Nokia E75 smartphone will certainly want to check out the latest firmware update that Nokia has released. The version 201.12.01 firmware is quite a large download, weighing in at 153MB, but it will offer a whole bunch of improvements, such as: Integrated Ovi Contacts New shortcuts in Applications folder – Facebook, YouTube and MySpace Calendar speed improvements and synchronization bug fixes Updated clients: N-Gage, Share Online, […]
12/06/2009, To be honest, this constant mudslinging between AT&T and Verizon is getting really old. After a lawsuit, peace treaty, and more ads, AT&T has hit back again with another ad featuring Luke Wilson. This time the ad focuses on the speed of AT&T’s network over Verizon. Maybe carriers should spend that money that they’re using on these adverts and beef up the quality of their networks instead. What do you […]
