12/05/2009, While having 8GB of storage space on your Palm is great, the downside of webOS is that you’re stuck with a rather weird limit which only allows a few hundred megabytes of app installations. With more than 500 apps available for webOS, it’s probably quite irritating. Now it seems that webOS 1.3.5 will resolve this by moving the storage to another partition. There isn’t any official word on this just […]
12/04/2009, The FCC has given their collective nod of approval to what could possibly be a cloned handset of AT&T’s HTC Hero or, according to the diagram, a myTouch from T-Mobile. This has been classified as a clone simply because it comes with a dual SIM carriage alongside Chinese input support, while you get other rudimentary specifications including audio and video support, an integrated FM tuner with recording capability and a […]
12/04/2009, Bell looks set to join the Android party (albeit very late) with other mobile carriers in Canada with the Samsung Galaxy i7500 ready to rock the Great White North this coming December 10th. Just in case you were wondering what kind of phone the Galaxy i7500 is, it boasts a 3.2? HVGA AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS navigation, 7.2Mbps HSDPA support, […]
12/04/2009, Phew, UMA is back and it is stable! I’ve had UMA issues with the T-Mobile Blackberry Bold 9700 since I got it a few weeks ago, and I finally found what was happening (btw, the T-mo BB 8900 has UMA working on the same network). I’m posting this because other people seem to have problems connecting via UMA as well. Note that while I have solved my particular UMA connectivity […]
12/04/2009, The Samsung i6500 Saturn also receives an additional branding – Google. This full touchscreen smartphone will most probably ditch the QWERTY keyboard, where you get Wi-Fi connectivity alongside a built-in digital camera on the back. Apart from those, scant little else is known about the i6500 Saturn, including its mysterious release date. With the Google brand slapped behind, one can safely figure out that mobile Google apps ought to work […]
12/04/2009, Talk about one of the most blatant rip-offs ever, even down to the name! The HTC G3 Asian is not an officially sanctioned smartphone from HTC, but is a clone of the HTC Hero in virtually every aspect, although this model will run on Windows Mobile instead of Android. It touts being the first Hisilicon K3-based cellphone which has a trackball, running on a 460MHz processor while accompanied by a […]
12/04/2009, The Motorola La Jolla, also known as “The Jewel” in Spanish, is surprisingly ironic considering the La Jolla has been targeted to be an affordable Android-powered cellphone. Makes us wonder what kind of jewel Motorola is hinting at with this – perhaps the superb bargain type which offers unprecedented functionality and capability at rock bottom prices? We do know that the handset will come with a WQVGA resolution display, a […]
12/04/2009, Verizon Wireless has announced that they will be offering the HTC Droid Eris that will come equipped with an updated version of Android, where it comes with integrated Google Maps Navigation sometime in the first quarter of next year. There isn’t much to speculate about since Google’s navigation application already runs fine on the Donut update. Just some trivia for you folks – the Droid is currently ahead of other […]
12/04/2009, It seems that O2 Germany has confirmed that the Palm Pre webOS 1.3.1 ROM has a bug affecting SMS text messages. This latest version of the OS seems to interpret some special characters wrong, which results in the SMS being switched to Unicode (which has a max of 70 characters). If users aren’t paying attention to the SMS text counter when this occurs, the text message might end up being […]
12/04/2009, Aren’t the holidays great, especially with all the promotions and such? As predicted, AT&T has started to offer 50% off BlackBerry smartphones. You’ll still need to agree to a 2-year contract agreement, and the mail-in-rebate still stands, but that’s beside the point, right? In case you’re looking for something else, the Samsung Solstice is going for free with a new contract.
12/04/2009, While there still isn’t any official confirmation on the Motorola Scholes just yet, more pictures of it seem to have appeared online. If the rumors are true, this device will be powered by Android 2.1 and will sport features such as a 3.7-inch touchscreen, FM radio, 5-megapixel camera. Word on the street is that it will be released on China Unicom as the XT701, which sounds rather unattractive to be […]
12/04/2009, You might have thought that the recent ceasefire between Verizon and AT&T would calm things down, but it seems that when it comes to marketing, the war is never over. Check out the latest video advertisement for Motorola’s Droid by Verizon. For some reason, you keep thinking it’s referencing Apple’s iPhone, don’t you?
12/04/2009, If you’re a privacy advocate, you’ll certainly be concerned about the recent issue of Sprint sharing GPS-tracking data to authorities. If there is any positive spin to the whole issue, it is that Sprint has been fairly open and is facing the issue head on, instead of feigning innocence and ignorance. The company has refuted the “8 million” figure which has been bandied about, and says that it isn’t the […]
12/04/2009, For those of you who have been suffering through the camera bug on the (otherwise excellent) Motorola Droid, you’ll be happy to hear that Verizon has announced that an OTA (over-the-air) update will be available in the coming weeks. There isn’t an exact release date on the fix just yet, but word on the street is that December 11th might just be that special day, so keep an eye on […]
