11/10/2009, We’ve seen Apple’s iPhone control a variety of device before, including remote controlled cars, but what about a full sized car? Well, that’s what the folks over at Waterloo Labs set out to do (and achieved). Check out the video above. We certainly don’t encourage you to try this at home.
11/10/2009, We know how much some of you are drooling over Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Gamers who were at Union Square to join in on the New York launch were able to participate in a free engraving service from Coveroo. Logos for GameStop, Xbox 360 and Activision were all available to be engraved on whatever device they had on hand. As you can see in the picture above, it’s […]
11/10/2009, With the battle between the iPhone OS, Windows Mobile, Google’s Android heating up, what we need now is another mobile operating system, right? Well, that’s what Samsung thinks anyways, as it has just announced its entry into the mobile operating system game with Bada. If you must ask, the name means “ocean” in Korean, showing Samsung’s commitment to a variety of open platforms. Will Bada eventually ride to challenge the […]
11/09/2009, China might have just received the iPhone 3GS recently, but interestingly enough the Communist country didn’t really go iPhone crazy. Guess there is always room for more “normal” handsets like the upcoming Samsung S359, where this music-centric handset will come in a slider form factor, featuring a 2″ display, WAP browser v2.0, music playback, a microSD memory card slot, a VGA camera and an integrated FM radio. China Telecom will […]
11/09/2009, Take a look at the alleged new Samsung handset here and judge for yourself whether it is real or a Photoshop. After all, this handset is inspired from Samsung’s Crystal Design that can be found in its range of LCD TVs. Currently, there are no details concerning this phone (since it could very well be but a concept), but we hope to bring you news if it develops further.
11/09/2009, Samsung has unveiled a couple of images for two of its upcoming phones, the M3310 and B3410. The former will be a music-oriented dual-slider handset that comes with external music controls, stereo speakers, a 3.5mm headset jack, Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, an integrated FM radio with RDS, a 2.1″ QVGA display, a 3.2-megapixel and a microSD memory card slot. Available in black and white colors, the Samsung M3310 will come with […]
11/09/2009, Phones 4u customers will be able to get their hands on a white Nokia N97 Mini from November 6th onwards, where the phone is available for free as long as you agree to a GDP35 monthly plan on Orange or Vodafone. Otherwise, the N97 Mini will also be free on a GDP25 monthly contract if you happen to trade in your current N-Series handset. Interested? We think so, as it […]
11/09/2009, Cellphones might come with some really high resolution cameras these days, but that doesn’t mean they are great at macro shots. Aydogan Ozcan, an assistant professor of electrical engineering and member of the California NanoSystems Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, has come up with a DIY design for a cellphone microscope, writing his very own software to work in tandem with off-the-shelf parts that cost no more […]
11/09/2009, Now this is as weird as seeing a Mac run Windows for the first time all those years ago, but we presume it will be a more and more common sight sometime down the road. The Aphone A6 might resemble the iPhone physically, but deep down inside, it will run on the Android operating system – albeit at version 1.5. Supported features include multi-touch capability, a dual-core processor, a 3.5″ […]
11/09/2009, Just when you thought that one of the main reasons for having an Apple product would be having the peace of mind of not having to contend with computer viruses and the like, along comes news of an iPhone worm which will target jailbroken iPhones. First discovered in Australia (must be the great outbacks there), the worm is a mobile Rickroll as it changes the iPhone background to a photo […]
11/09/2009, Still drooling over Sony Ericsson’s XPERIA X10? Well, if you just can’t get enough of the phone, check out a promotional video on it, and see a bunch of glamorous looking people fiddle around with the X10. With the Motorola Droid, XPERIA X10, will the iPhone 3GS have a tough battle in 2009/2010?
11/09/2009, Good news for O2 customers who are thinking of moving to another carrier. Matthew Key, the chairman and chief executive officer of O2’s parent company, Telefonica Europe, has stated that iPhone customers who wish to leave the carrier can call customer services and ask them to unlock their iPhone. The unlocking service will set you back £14.97 ($25), and of course, you’ll need to serve out your contract first. So […]
11/09/2009, 14 million of anything is almost certainly a lot, but having to recall 14 million AC adapters? Well, it certainly seems that Nokia has a job on its hands. Nokia has found out that the plastic covers of its AC-3E and AC-3U charges manufactured between April 13th and October 25th 2009 could come loose and separate, exposing the charger’s internal components, meaning you could get a nasty shock if you […]
11/09/2009, It seems like a lawsuit from AT&T isn’t enough to deter Verizon Wireless from stepping on AT&T’s toes this holiday season. Verizon has launched a new series of advertisements that poke fun at AT&T’s low 3G coverage, but doesn’t specifically say anything bad about Apple, which might actually give credence to the rumors that Verizon might be getting an updated (maybe smaller) version of Apple’s iPhone. Check you the videos […]
