06/12/2009, BlackBerry owners who love the Guitar Hero game would do well to check out the latest Guitar Hero World Tour theme for the smartphone, where Bplay is offering it for $5.99 a pop. We admit that it looks really awesome, and would recommend you to download the Guitar Hero World Tour game for the BlackBerry itself for a cent shy of $10 to literally take things to the next level.

06/12/2009, Word on the street has it that the new BlackBerry Tour will be hitting the streets this August, and it will also be accompanied by both the SurePress touchscreen display and a QWERTY keyboard. Well, we guess everything else will be finely ironed out before summer is over, so hopefully this piece of news is correct in order for people to enjoy the newest BlackBerry in time for the new […]
06/11/2009, BGR has a leaked image of a supposedly new Samsung handset known as the Bigfoot that is set to make its debut later this summer. Apparently, this device will come with a 3-megapixel camera in addition to a 3″ capacitive AMOLED touchscreen display. Other features found on the Bigfoot include an integrated slide-out full QWERTY keyboard and a navigation button below the display. At first glance, some of us think […]
06/11/2009, PhoneArena.com has received word from an anonymous tipster that the BlackBerry Tour will have the same touch-display technology than the BlackBerry Storm. It’s not clear if it’s a good thing or not, but we like the idea of having the touch+keyboard combo. We’ll have to see how this will be implemented because 80% of everything lies in execution, right?
06/11/2009, Maverick Lifestyle Corp. makes a fashionable technology statement with its Nica Bluetooth headset which will ship later this summer, coming in the form factor of an open-air headset that also functions as a hands-free device. The device’s design makes it impossible to squeeze in a boom, although you do get a microphone that targets the user’s face. On the other hand, you’ll benefit from a larger speaker as well as […]
06/11/2009, The PhonePoint Pen software is an experimental new system which is able to capture gestures made with a cellphone, allowing you to write letters in the air that the handset is able to interpret and store. Sounds like a whole lot more energy is required for this compared to the speed and convenience of using the built-in QWERTY keyboard or touchscreen, but at least it is a novel idea. The […]
06/11/2009, Wall Street Journal has reported that the Palm Pre could be heading towards Verizon as early as January 2010 onwards, which is in stark contrast with what CEO Dan Hesse recently spouted concerning Sprint’s exclusivity deal which lasts longer than six months. Technically, Dan might be correct since a January 2010 launch from Verizon would put the timeline at seven months. So what do you think – will the outcome […]
06/10/2009, Check out this Elektrobit MID and its form factor – do you think it has the innards as shown below capable of challenging the current king-of-the-hill, the iPhone 3GS?

06/10/2009, Half-Life 2 on PC. The 3GS GPU has all the features required to do this The new iPhone CPU is getting a lot of buzz, and for sure, it will make the iPhone 3GS more responsive than its predecessors, but I think that most users will be “shocked” to see how powerful the iPhone 3GS is for 3D graphics. Obviously, you have seen the specifications: we’re going from a fixed-pipeline […]
06/10/2009, One week after a ridiculous thumbnail of a black XPERIA 2 leaked on the web, here are much better pictures of the X2, in silver, this time. It seems to run Windows Mobile 6.5, but it is hard to tell if the X2 has the same built quality that made the X1 great to the touch. On one of the photos we can see some bits of specs: ARM 1136EJS […]
06/10/2009, John Carmack’s has dedicated a significant amount of time on programming for the iPhone. Doom Resurrection for iPhone should set the bar very high for 3d graphics on Apple’s platform. In the past, J. Carmack said that “If you look at it in raw hardware horsepower, the iPhone should be better in performance than the Nintendo DS and the PlayStation Portable,”. We’re not sure that the iPhone (the 3G) beats […]

06/10/2009, People looking at some script files on the Palm Pre’s operating system (OS) have noticed that the Pixie name showed up, hinting that Pixie would indeed in on Palm’s new OS. It’s not really a shocker to think that Palm would use and re-use the OS that it worked so hard on, but that’s always a relief to know that the seemingly low-priced device will have most of the goodness […]
06/10/2009, Everyone is excited by the iPhone 3GS, but hardcore open-source fans might be interested by the fact that the T-Mobile G1 is experiencing a price drop (contract and data plan required). There is no rebate paperwork involved. you’ve been warned.
