11/29/2009, Tethering your Android smartphone might have been a rather complex process before, but now it seems that June Fabrics, the folks behind PDAnet, have ported the handy app to Google’s Android. PDAnet is also available on Windows Mobile, PalmOS, BlackBerry and iPhone. Carriers probably won’t be too happy to hear that the free version of PDAnet is available on the Android Market, and will work on most websites, except for […]
11/29/2009, With the iPhone launched in Korea, KT will certainly want to promote the phone heavily in order to get the ball running. We’ve managed to dig up some of the advertisements here (in Korea), so do check them out. In case you were wondering, the iPhone that’s launched in Korea will sport copy and paste, so the folks over there won’t have to survive without it, unlike us who had […]
11/29/2009, Carphone Warehouse has raised its profit estimates for the fiscal year, thanks to the success of its smartphone business. This success can be attributed directly to the success of its smartphone sales, particularly touchscreen devices. When you mention touchscreen devices, the first device that comes to mind is Apple’s iPhone. In case you didn’t already know, Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U are the only third-party resellers that are cleared to officially […]
11/29/2009, BlackBerry fans over in Japan will be getting a white colored BlackBerry Bold on NTT DoCoMo from December 3rd onwards. So if you think that black colored BlackBerrys are not your thing, this is probably your chance, unless you want to try out something with ColorWare.
11/29/2009, Mobile phone banking isn’t as widespread as Internet banking just yet, but it’s surely moving forward. Now Scotiabank has teamed up with M-Com to allow BlackBerry users to access their banking services. As usual, security is the main issue here, but M-Com seems confident that it can handle the pressure and deliver. This service should be launched in the spring of 2010, so keep an eye on this.
11/29/2009, Is that Nokia’s E72? Actually no, but we can certainly understand if anybody mistakes this for the real deal. It seems that the folks over in China are really perfecting the art of cloning mobile phones. This cloned phone sports a TV tuner, dual-SIM card slots, QWERTY keypad, Wi-Fi, JAVA, FM tuner, rear and front-facing 1.3 megapixel cameras. Of course, the user interface isn’t anything like what Nokia ships, but […]
11/29/2009, For those of you rocking BlackBerrys out there, you’ll be happy to hear that RIM has released the latest BlackBerry MediaSync 3.0. While it doesn’t have any ground breaking new features, it does offer 2-way synchronizing of photos for PC users. One thing to note is that some folks have complained that synchronizing pictures is rather slow, but everything else seems fine. As long as you’re running at least Windows […]
11/28/2009, It seems that Samsung’s recently announced mobile OS – bada, will be launched on December 8, which is about 2 weeks away. Based on the information we’ve picked up, Samsung will be holding a press event in London on said date, and details on the OS will be revealed to everybody. It will be interesting to see how well the Samsung bada performs in the long run though, especially if […]
11/28/2009, Some information regarding the successor to the LG Arena has surfaced, thanks to the Wi-Fi Alliance. The device will be called the LG Arena Max, though not much else is known about it, aside that it will (obviously) sport Wi-Fi. Aside from retaining the touchscreen capability, it’s believed that it won’t be using a smartphone-grade operating system such as Windows Mobile or Android, which is a slight disappointment.
11/28/2009, Nokia’s certainly putting a lot of effort into promoting its N900, but it seems that it might have gone a step too far with its latest video (which has since be yanked off YouTube). It was boasting that the N900 could run emulators and showed it running SNES emulators, which is fine, but the problem is that they showcased a video of Super Mario World and Super Ghouls and Ghosts […]
11/28/2009, Thanks to some recent information, it looks like LG’s IQ will be hitting Telus’ lineup in time for the holiday season. So if you’ve been waiting for this phone, you might be lucky enough to find it in your Christmas sock (if you’ve been good). A video of the phone in action can be found here. Specs for the LG IQ include: GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA 850/1900/2100MHz) 3.2-inch WVGA touchscreen display 480 x […]
11/28/2009, The Cooli902 sure looks like the offspring of Apple’s iPhone and HTC’s TyTN II. You really can’t complain about its specs either, as it boasts a touchscreen, sideout QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 2-megapixel camera, analog TV, MP3 and MP4 playback, and GSM network support. There isn’t any mention of 3G or GPS, though. It’ll set you back $142, but do bear in mind that these cloned iPhones have a rather […]
11/28/2009, By now most of you know that the HTC Droid Eris is more or less a redesigned HTC Hero, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a good phone. With that in mind, it certainly seems like a good bargain when Walmart is offering this phone for just $30. In case you forgot, the Droid Eris sports a 5-megapixel camera, 3G, GPS, Wi-Fi and comes with an 8GB microSD card. […]
11/27/2009, A recent posting at XDA-developers shows a completely revamped keyboard from a test build of Windows Mobile. The existing Windows Mobile keyboard still seems that it was designed more for stylus input, but the revamped version has much larger keys, which should make it much easier for users to use with their fingers, further enhancing the notion that stylus-based inputs are going out of fashion. If you take a good […]
