  • Bad news for Canadian Android fans: LG and Rogers updating LG GW 620 with “new” Android 1.6 *moldy* Donut.

    Ever been kicked between the legs, fallen on the top bar on a bike, or gotten hit with a stray kick ball right in the sweet spot during gym class? Yeah, we all have. It feels like your world is going to end. Along those same lines, I'm pretty sure that Canadian Android fans running on Rogers Wireless and toting an LG GW620 are feeling pretty much like what I just described. Any upgrade to "old" hardware is always a blessing. Manufactures and developers alike don't have any legal restra...
  • Tour with trackpad and WiFi (Essex/9650) seen in Sprint garb

    The BlackBerry Tour is by far the best CDMA BlackBerry yet. It has style, power, and sophistication. But one glaring omission -- WiFi -- fails to earn it a "buy" rating in my book. Remember, no matter how good your carrier, there will always be dead spots. The Tour 2/Essex/9650 is no secret. It's been rumored about and talked about for many months. In fact, shortly after (as in days) after the original Tour, talk of an updated model with WiFi and a trackpad were heard. Now that actual p...
  • Nokia N97 price cut in half. 3-year marriage commitment to Bell Canada needed…

    For whatever reason, Nokia phones have failed to really catch on here in the states. I know we've all seen those junk freebie Nokia's that just about every carrier has, using them to inflate their bottom line. But the real meat is that of smartphones. Here in the states and even North America as a whole, Nokia smartphones are often left for those with deeper pockets than most thanks to a lack of carrier subsidizing. $5-$600 phones are simply too much for most end users to pay. Even the most...
  • RIM to launch official, push supporting Twitter client October 16th?

    Are you a Twit-a-holic? Does the 140 character universe wait for each and every moment you feel is worth sharing? BlackBerry users are some of the most impatient individuals (I should know...I've had 3 so far). When they want an answer or information, they want it now. RIM is still the king of messaging, especially push messaging. Currently on any given BlackBerry you can receive emails, SMS/MMS, IM's, as well as many other messages from different sources pushed to your device. However, ...
  • Canada gets it: 3/4 of Canadian children know what the internet is and how to use it by age 7.

    In a sign that at least someone in this current age of digital walls, "protection schemes", and a weird displays of some anti-internet mentality, a report based on a survey conducted by Canadian Telco, Telus, reveals that three-fourths of Canadian children are "internet savvy" by age 7. Out of the 4,466 participants, a full 69% believed that an early grasp of technology is a must in todays world. A notable admission to make! The report goes on saying that repetitious percentages aside, Cana...
  • 8GB iPhone 3GS pretty much confirmed on Rogers website [Not Quite/Maybe so/who knows]
    by Mike

    While Apple rarely comments on rumors, and rumors are in fact far from truth until some 1st party steps forward to make it official, the constant mentioning of an 8GB iPhone 3GS model is all but officially confirmed thanks to Rogers. As the screen capture above clearly shows, there is an 8GB iPhone 3GS listed in the comparison chart which means we can now start betting on when and how Apple will announce the new entry level 3GS. While I didn't upgrade to the 3GS from my 3G and have no intent...

  • Rogers and LTE by 2010….maybe…?
    by Mike
    Posted February 20th, 2009 at 12:47 pm
    Boy Genius has had the opportunity to talk directly with representitives at Rogers in Canada who are claiming that the news released yesterday about Rogers' plans for a February 2010 LTE launch are completely inaccurate.  Even after letting Rogers listen to the audio clip BG had obtained from his source regarding the story, they continued to deny the claims.  To listen to the full phone call BG had with Rogers hit up Boy Genius Report.  So dear readers, now that the story is going back an...

  • Blackberry 8900 landing at T-Mobile a week early?
    by Mike
    Posted January 5th, 2009 at 11:46 pm
    Engadget Mobile says Yes!  They have received a copy of the 8900's release page showing a release date of February 11th, a whole week earlier than the original release date of February 18th!  This kind of thing doesn't happen very often folks.  Usually the outcome and our smiles are facing the other way!  It is a nice surprise when things come early.  Now all you ladies and gentlemen have time to buy it and give it to your significant other for Valentines Day.  I know I'd much rathe...
