10/20/2009, Remember those slider handsets that are able to end your calls simply by sliding them back into place? The Palm Pre surprisingly doesn’t do that – at least not until the most recent patch was released. This patch will also enable features on the Palm Pre including forwarded text messages, LED light for alerts and inclusion of pages to the app launcher among others.
10/19/2009, There’s a flurry of Android phones out there and not so long ago but the HTC Hero is different not only because it has a better physical design, but also because it has HTC Sense, a proprietary user interface extension that only HTC-branded phones have (unlike the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G, which is a white label phone). Yet, you can expect all the advantages that come with an Android phone: very […]
10/19/2009, If getting your Blackberry out of your pocket is really too much work, this might remotely be of some use. The Watch is said to have a nice OLED screen designed to display text clearly so that you can read all the notifications if the tiny display. I understand that there are situation where pulling the Blackberry out of my jeans’ pocket is harder than usual – when I’m driving […]
10/19/2009, Apple executives must be feeling the heat with Asus preparing itself to release a new Android-powered smartphone before the year is over, where more and more companies seem to be moving towards the Android direction. Hopefully this will foster healthy competition that is good for everyone as nobody is going to be seen as resting on their laurels. Granted, Asus didn’t really manage to wow the world with their past […]
10/19/2009, AT&T has just released th new HTC Tilt2 device that will come with a full QWERTY slider keyboard. It won’t be cheap though, retailing for $299.99 after rebates and signing your life to AT&T for a 2-year contract. Still, we’re sure that some people won’t mind since it will cram in a 3.5″ WVGA resistive touchscreen display, a 3.2-megapixel camera and Windows Mobile 65. alongside the standard HTC TouchFlo user […]
10/19/2009, Check out this unknown HTC handset that appeared in several leaked photos that had it running on Android without missing a beat. Most people claim that this is the HTC Dragon – good to know this ancient mythological beast is still alive and kicking, hoping that it will breathe fire to heat up the smartphone arena with its Android operating system. Seemingly a GPS handset, the HTC Dragon looks set […]
10/19/2009, Verizon will be rolling out their Droid device in the near future, and for all we know this could be a new smartphone which will most probably be powered by Google’s Android operating system. Some others whisper that this could be the Motorola Scholes Google handset, or another Android-powered phone of a different nature. The ad campaign does poke fun at the Apple iPhone 3GS with phrases that start with […]
10/19/2009, Another day, another clone device. This time round it is the supposed flagship model from Finnish cellphone manufacturer, Nokia, with the Nckia N97 hitting the market. At first glance, the Nckia N97 seems pretty decent until one turns it on only to find out that this is no smartphone at all. It will feature a 2.6″ WQVGA display alongside a 2-megapixel camera, a VGA front-camera, Java 2.0 support, a built-in […]
10/19/2009, If you’re going to fool people with a cloned handset, why not do your best instead of calling it the 3GS HiPhone Compass? This isn’t the cellphone that most young people would kill for, but it does resemble Cupertino’s offering thanks to a 3.5″ touchscreen display, Wi-Fi connectivity and the presence of an actual compass. Apart from that, you will also find Bluetooth support thrown in to keep up with […]
10/19/2009, Bluetooth technology hasn’t really progressed that much since it debuted many years ago, and most of the time these days it is used more for hands-free devices instead of other more creative uses, though we can’t really blame the technology for that due to its inherent limitations. While much better than IR, it does place a strain on the battery, but that could very well change in the future with […]
10/18/2009, You’ve probably read about the Square iPhone Payment System a while back, but some interesting information regarding it has appeared. The goal of the system was to turn the iPhone into an instant mobile credit card payment facility, which would certainly be useful, considering the popularity of the iPhone. The latest update seems to indicate that Jack Dorsey is the person behind this system, and in case you didn’t know, […]
10/18/2009, It’s probably the closest we’ve got to a press release, and we’ll take it. We’re talking about the Twitter post by VZWOffers stating that Verizon will be carrying the Palm Pre from early next year. Fans of the Palm Pre will certainly be rejoicing, not to mention the many folks who have been complaining that Verizon has a rather lackluster lineup of premier phones.
10/18/2009, It looks like the pricing scheme of apps on Apple’s App Store should see some changes soon as Apple has announced that they will be allowing free apps to enable in-app purchases. With that update, developers will certainly be scambling to give their apps away as a method to get users to install, and charge them for content (such as add-ons, items, etc) later. It’s a business model that is […]
10/18/2009, As we edge closer to T-Mobile’s Project Dark, some additional info regarding it has cropped up. Thanks to the folks over at BGR, it seems that Project Dark will certainly have some unlimited plans, and the “Even More” And “Even More Plus” plans revealed earlier are indeed real. There is also a new FlexPay system that will kick in, which allows folks to pick up their dream cellphone and pay […]
