    Anyone thinking that either AT&T; or Verizon were going to roll over and let the other walk all over them in the courtroom has another thing coming. Neither side is backing down anytime soon as both have come forward with fightin' words. We all know that AT&T;'s latest claims has them bragging how "awesome" their EDGE network is when the "rare" extremely common occurrence of 3G-less AT&T; coverage presents itself. Verizon on the other hand comes out swinging pretty hard saying: AT&T; did not ...

    Not being able to place a call, send a text, load up a web page, or send a tweet because you're in the middle of no where (or in downtown Chicago and running on AT&T;) is frustrating to say the least. For me at least, I couldn't go through a normal day without my phone. It's my "windows to the world". You wouldn't think that northern Indiana is that big of a deal in the grander scheme of things but we just so happen to have pretty decent to phenomenal wireless coverage from many wireless provi...

  • Droid Eris (Desire) coming to Verizon on November 6th!

    Talk about fast! The Motorola Sholes (Droid) hasn't even been announced *officially* and now we have this second Android device coming to Verizon. Word is that "Droid" is not simply the latest and greatest Android phone to come to Verizon. Droid is actually the series name meaning many more "Droid" handsets such as the Verizon Eris (Desire) will come through the pipeline. Speaking of the Eris, it's being released on November 6th. No fancy announcement or hype building which is kind of odd s...
  • Verizon and Google share the same bed

    Who woulda thunk it? While a mere 360 days ago (give or take a few days) these two companies were battling it out over the 700 MHz spectrum rules, they have apparently found common ground and then some -- high school drama I say. The big surprise is the fact that Verizon is doing something no one else in the mobile sphere is doing and actually paying attention to the market, their customers, and what said entities want. They are watching all of this negative backlash directed at AT&T; and Ap...
  • Verizon bound Motorola Sholes gets new name, specs.
    by Mike
    Posted October 1st, 2009 at 5:47 pm
    Well well well. Verizon junkies and Android hopefuls have something to get all hot and bothered over tonight. First up, the Motorola Sholes as it has been called up until this point apparently has a new name: "Droid". I know, you're thinking "how original". The name whether it is Motorola Sholes, Motorola Droid, or whatever else they decide to call it is irrelevant as all we really care about is the specs. What's it packin'? 3.7" 854×480 WVGA capacitive screen (Awesome!) ARM Cortex 500...
  • About that Verizon != Pre thing….*just kidding*
    by Mike
    Posted September 25th, 2009 at 1:30 pm can't always get them right. And this one we apparently did not. Following yesterdays reporting from multiple sources that for reasons unknown, Verizon was going to pass on the Palm Pre are looking to be a bit...well..false. Several respectable sources such as The Street and Deutsche Bank’s Jonathan Goldberg are saying yesterdays scare doesn't have much weight. Mr. Goldberg in particular stressed that the Verizon/Pre fallout wasnt accurate and that demand is still healthy enough ...
  • Verizon decides against Palm Pre. iPhone deal behind closed doors? Palm gets a face smack.
    by Mike
    Posted September 25th, 2009 at 6:24 am
    *Rumor & Speculation warning.....!* I'm sure you've seen the articles detailing the recent smackdown Verizon dealt to Palm. If's a very quick recap. Verizon was more than likely prepping to get the Pre early next year bringing Verizon customers one of their first tastes of a "modern" smartphone. However, that same company that was bragging about having the Pre right around Sprint's launch is now singing a very different tune as the are reported to now be passing over the Pre.....
  • Instinct HD gets spied. Junior 15 collects at the waist — really.

    Posted September 24th, 2009 at 5:30 am
    In what can't really be seen as a good quality, spied pictures of the Instinct HD stuck between a piece of glass and it's own box are racing around the web this morning showing one very weird character trait. The Instinct HD went off it's diet and instead appears to have packed on the pounds. The mystery shooter of the pictures even went on to say that "it felt like a bloated s30 in your hands". Take it how you want to but when you get called fat and not so nice to hold, something isn't right...
  • BlackBerry Tour high return claims ruffle a few feathers…
    by Mike
    Posted September 18th, 2009 at 1:25 pm
    Having a piece of art, geeky art that you and your company have spent so many hours and sacrificed blood and tears for experience a quality problem is a sad sad thing to go through. Understandably, I'm sure RIM is feeling the heat as both Verizon and Sprint BlackBerry Tour's (9630) are getting flack from users because of faulty trackballs. Return rates have been estimated as high as the 50% mark according to both Barron's and a CrunchGear poll -- not a small problem or claim to say the least. ...
  • Verizon to snag 3 2 Android handsets by years end?
    by Mike
    Posted September 17th, 2009 at 7:09 am
    You're speculation/rumor light should be going full bore right now as what is about to be presented to you is pretty lofty though not so much so that it is completely unbelievable. Starting off, the rumor is based off of a DigiTimes article (please bare with me...give it a chance) that Verizon will be launching both the HTC Desire and HTC Passion (Google phone) in the 4th quarter, bringing the end of year Android count to 3. The reason for the speculation and thought provoking conversation c...
