  • Motorola working on AT&T/T-Mobile 3G chip in an attempt to bring the two love birds together
    by Mike

    Imagine the day when you can pick up either an AT&T; or T-Mobile 3G device and move freely between the two GSM carriers without a care in the world concerning 3G abilities. Such a module seems like it would have been a no brainer. If they can squeeze four 2G frequencies on a chip, what the hell is taking them so long to get three 3G frequencies on a chip? I don't know the answer, but I can tell you that Motorola is working on a solution. A new 3G module they're developing would do what many a...
  • Nokia also closing New York and Chicago stores.

    It's might sad to see a once great tech giant falter and begin to fail. As they travel along their downward spiral of a decent, you start remembering all of the fond memories of years past. Such a reminiscing period will soon fall upon New York and Chicago residents who currently flock to Nokia flagship stores on a regular basis. The blood letting (read: extreme profit losses) that is killing Nokia within claimed it's first store a couple of days ago. Tonight we learn of two more stores goin...
  • LG readying next version of GD910 Watch Phone
    by Mike
    Posted November 12th, 2009 at 10:56 am
    The GD910 watch phone was by far the coolest watch phone I had seen thus far. It was extremely classy and techie looking -- a far departure from your typical watch phone which often comes away looking like a Miami Vice edition complete with 80's build quality and all. The GD910 while a niche product and low sales was proof that a cool watch phone could be built. Apparently there was enough demand that one generation just wasn't enough as LG has the GD910's successor scurrying the lab lookin...
  • PrePaid phone scene in Jammu & Kashmir? Banned.
    by Mike
    Posted October 31st, 2009 at 8:43 am
    Seeing a headline mentioning anything geeky or tech based being banned often conjures up initial reactions of malice and disgust as such governments and government bodies that do such things do so for their own agenda -- not the citizens'. With that in mind, hold off on any initial feelings you may have when hearing that the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs has banned prepaid cellphones in Kashmir and declared that any existing SIM cards with such plans not be renewed. Again, it's deeper than i...
  • So long Helio, we barely knew you…

    Fall into the Helio craze did you? Better keep that Ocean/Ocean2 in tip top shape because it appears those will be the last Helio branded devices ever. As Engadget points out, it never made sense of Virgin Mobile to hobble along supporting two different brands. Whether the exec's at Virgin Mobile finally stopped tapping that funny kool-aid or they just came to their senses is a moot point. The fact of the matter is Helio branded devices are being erased from Virgin's memory save for two lone...
  • Toshiba’s new CMOS censor to bring 14 megapixel cameraphones in 2010?
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 10:15 am
    Mobile photographers listen up, if you were looking for a higher megapixel count for your camera phone, step back, take a reality check and realize that camera's will not replace a good digital SLR anytime soon. In reality, real photographers already know that it's not necessarily the number of megapixels that matters most as it is the quality of the lens and algorithms/software used to shuttle physical images into "1" and "0" form. With that little factoid expressed, we can get on with th...
  • Verizon holiday roadmap leaked
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 8:44 am
    Don't let the image above fool you, BlackBerries aren't the only thing coming to town. Simply looking at what we have currently seen of upcoming handsets, Verizon already has quite the holiday season forming with the Moto Droid and Eris. Android isn't everyone's favorite mobile OS however (a travesty indeed). For those individuals, a leaked roadmap from VZW highlights everything else that is primed and ready to flaunt retail stores this holiday season. Since we already know about the Dro...
  • Phillips jumping on Android bandwagon. Releases a real yawner.
    by Mike
    Posted October 21st, 2009 at 8:33 am
    Android is quickly picking up steam as 2009 comes closer to and end. I'm certainly not complaining as the platform will soon be my new home. However, we will inevitably see companies releasing sub-standard hardware yet cashing in on this Android movement. The Phillips v808 isn't anything special physically. The specs don't leave much room for excitement either. The biggest omission is the lack of 3G as this non-looker is GSM/GPRS/EDGE only. If you're still interested, a 3.2" HVGA display...
  • China gets a real “professional” camera phone through the Altek T8680
    by Mike
    Posted August 3rd, 2009 at 2:02 pm
    Sure anyone can go and order a Nokia, Sony, or Samsung camera phone boasting of 5, 6, 7+ megapixels. But no one can hold a candle to the Chinese bound Altek T8680. While it isn't hte first 12 megapixel camera phone on the market, the real juice behind the story is the 3x optical zoom. 3x may not sound like much in a world with larger lenses on more "professional" cameras, but on a cellphone, any optical zoom is a god send. As you all know, digital zoom is worthless. There simly isn't any ...
  • Make video calls in the absence of light [Thank-you Samsung]
    by Mike
    Posted July 6th, 2009 at 8:50 am
    Video calls while being all the rage over seas, haven't quite caught on here in the U.S. Though, with downright laughable "highspeed" speeds, video calling would all but render our networks all but dead as millions flooded the airwaves with video bits. But, for those of you who are more fortunate to enjoy real wireless broadband speeds, video calling is a treat. But what about when the sun goes down and the lights go out? If you're carrying a Samsung SCH-W760 in hand, you'll be just fine. ...
  • Best Buy: “We want your mobile dollars”
    by Mike
    Posted June 24th, 2009 at 3:37 pm
    Since the original iPhone debuted a little more than two years ago, mobile internet usage has sky rocketed. Naturally, resellers want to get in on this lucrative market and make put a few bennies away in the bank. You may have noticed in recent outings to the well known electronics giant, Best Buy, that their mobile phone section got a relatively large boost in size. It is all part of their grand plan to open 40 new, standalone mobile phone stores in hopes of capturing a bigger chunk of all...
  • Students using gadgets to maximize their cheating potential
    by Gibralter
    Posted June 18th, 2009 at 11:13 am
    It is official: Cellphones and internet usage have totally and completely corrupted the youth of our generation.  A poll commissioned by Common Sense Media and conducted by Benenson Strategy Group to study cellphone and internet usage by teens in relation to school and homework shows just how corrupt they have really become.  Now I assumed that the cheating with use of internet and cellphones would be evident but not anywhere near to the degree that teens admitted to.   Over 1/3 of...
