10/12/2009, This is really strange – the NokLa E81 clone handset resembles the Nokia 7705 rotating slider more than anything else, and to make matters all the more hilarious, its back claims that the handset is a Verizon exclusive. Ah well, at least you get triband GSM connectivity with this, alongside a QWERTY keyboard, a 1.3-megapixel camera, video and audio playback and a microSD memory card slot. The price to pay? […]

10/12/2009, Bell and Roger will be getting the BlackBerry Bold 9000 in black and white colors, respectively. No idea on why one can’t choose from either color regardless of carrier, perhaps it is a way to indicate one’s preference of service providers with a quick glance without the need for any second guessing?
10/12/2009, Has Sony Ericsson run out of ideas that they have to call a couple of upcoming rugged handsets names that seem a wee bit soft – Susan and Sunny? These new handsets are tipped to come with a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and waterproof capability. There is no word on pricing or availability of either handset, but we’re more interested in getting our hands on its specifications sooner rather […]
10/12/2009, With Windows 7 Mobile going to be released sometime next year, documents have shown that there will be a Microsoft Office Mobile 7 suite on its way as well. One thing we know for sure is this (among the many other uncertainties, of course) – Office Mobile 7 will function nicely with Windows Mobile 7 (but of course), but other than that, very little – or should we say, nothing […]

10/11/2009, iPhone owners who want an updated dose of Twitter will certainly be jumping for joy that the updated version of Tweetie for the iPhone has hit the App Store.

There is also a feature called “Nearby”, which launches a map that shows the […]
10/11/2009, If there ever was to be an epic fail in the history of cloud computing, the problems that T-Mobile is having with its Sidekick is certainly it.

10/11/2009, Not everybody’s phone has the ability to record the calls you make, and if you’re in such a situation, you could always pick up the Celltronix VR1 Bluetooth headset.

We’re not sure what’s going to happen, but it’s probably fairly safe to guess that customers aren’t going to […]
