  • LG and Sprint to showcase new device at CES. Lotus 2 or Prada III to drop? [Update]
    by Mike

    What was your original impression of the LG Lotus? For those who don't remember, it was a goofy shaped "tweener" phone with a more square shaped design. Not exactly stylish in my opinion. Though many in the mobile world are no doubt in love. For you love birds I have some *almost* good news. LG and Sprint are taking the stage together at CES this year for a grand launch party centering around some new mobile device. Generally when I see the words "LG" and "Fashion" I think of the Prada li...
  • webOS training at VZW stores starts. Pre/Pixie launch can’t be too far off.

    Back when the Palm Pre was launched, Sprint boasted of their exclusive deal with Palm concerning webOS. (A lot of good that did them...) Verizon countered with an "end of year" release of webOS themselves. Obviously they were a bit too excited as Sprint ended up being correct -- that Verizon wasn't getting any webOS love until 2010. Well, 2010 is just around the corner and tonight we can now feast our eyes upon the very training documents VZW employees are currently consuming, prepping f...
  • Verizon Palm Pixie passes FCC? 2010 launch all but confirmed?
    by Mike
    Posted December 13th, 2009 at 9:52 pm
    Palm has had a rather tough time so far getting webOS off the ground. The Pre has more or less done pretty good though it's short of what I'd call a blow out success. Still, Palm still has some fight (or is it just reflexes on a dead carcass now...?) left in them. The Palm Pixie isn't as high end as the Pre, but it's purpose in life isn't to steal the hearts and minds of the high end market. The Pixie is meant to bring up the bottom end -- to usher in droves of new users who may not have had...
  • China Unicom reporting iPhone sales count passes 100,000
    by Mike
    Posted December 10th, 2009 at 10:09 am
    If you happened to catch the article we mentioned a few days back highlighting the extremely rough estimate/rumor that a mere 5 official China Unicom iPhones were sold at launch, you probably came to the conclusion that basing overall numbers off of one store -- even the largest online retailer in the country -- isn't exactly the most accurate way to reflect sale. In truth however, the main point wasn't to say "Hey there's only 5 iPhones in China" but more to highlight abysmal sales overall. E...
  • 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...
  • HTC Passion becomes “Bravo” for stateside appearance.
    by Mike
    Posted December 8th, 2009 at 7:17 am
    So far most in the Android realm have been enamored with this so called HTC Passion. With a lovely 3.5" AMOLED and 1GHz Snapdragon processor, on paper it's easily the best Android phone to date. Unfortunately, word of delays are making their rounds, destroying what little happiness we had been reserving for the holiday gadget shopping season. But such is the way of the world. A few days back, HTC's entire product map was leaked for the 1H of 2010. In it was a rather Passion-esque "Bravo". ...
  • DROID and HTC Droid Eris to receive Android 2.1 update January 11th or January 22nd?
    by Mike
    Posted December 7th, 2009 at 9:46 am
    Get your salt shakers folks. You'll need them yet again as this is for now a "what if" type of question. It's highly suspected that the Android 2.0.1 update will drop on December 11th just a few days from now. Verizon themselves mentioned that the Droid would receive such an update "before the holidays". Now, also put into your internal RAM that Verizon has stated that the HTC Droid Eris will receive an upgrade to at least Android 2.0 in Q1 of 2010. Finally, back on November 9th we had a st...
  • AT&T actually fares better than Verizon in latest tests…?
    by Mike
    Posted December 7th, 2009 at 5:09 am
    If there's one thing about wireless network tests, it's that they're constantly being conducted by various groups looking to disprove claims of their competitors while bolstering claims of their own. The last several months of my AT&T; contract were hell. Dropped calls increased by day, signal strength was abysmal, and rounding out the trifecta was a trip to a University of Michigan football game when I couldn't place a single call, text, or call up a web page all day -- even with five bars -- ...
  • PTT coming to Android. “Opus One” to bring Nextel their first taste of sophistication?
    by Mike
    Posted December 6th, 2009 at 10:58 am
    With the rest of the civilized world embracing Android at increasing paces, it only makes sense for Nextel to get in on the game at some point. With a network that isn't exactly known for it's speed and a handset lineup that always leaves most wanting more, hearing of a legitimate Android offering on Nextel is exciting. Exciting only for those who whether by choice or by corporate decree are enslaved to the aging network. Being on Nextel could only mean that the most likely (and actual) manu...
  • FCC puts Verizon under the microscope for excessive cancellation fees and “accidental data fees”
    by Mike
    Posted December 4th, 2009 at 2:35 pm
    Cancelling your cellphone contract use to come with a hefty fee of anywhere from $175 up to $200+. The carriers justified this fee by highlighting how customers buying subsidized phones and then canceling their contracts was killing their checkbooks. Then a revelation happened last year -- pro-rated cancellation fees starting at the same $175-$200 but decreasing by $5 each month were introduced meaning the longer you stayed in your contract, the lower the cancellation fee. It makes perfect se...
  • Verizon offering up Droid/Eris BOGO sale this Friday-Monday?! [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted December 2nd, 2009 at 3:11 pm
    If you were holding of on getting an Android device to see what was coming up late this year or just to save a few pennies, it looks like this weekend through monday (December 4-7th) will be your best chance yet. We can pretty much guarantee that the Passion is coming to Verizon late this year rockin' a Snapdragon processor and....need I say more? Snapdragon dreams aside, the Droid and Eris aren't bad phones by any means, each with plenty of life left in them. So what about this BOGO? It per...
  • Consumer Reports reveals results to Best Carrier Service survey — AT&T gets the caboose.
    by Mike
    Posted December 1st, 2009 at 1:02 pm
    Surprised? Ya, no one is surprised. AT&T; finishing last in call quality is a given. To be fair, none of the big four carriers: Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, or AT&T; ranked above 75. Even still, more written evidence of AT&T;'s saturated and broken network is disappointing. But the real disheartening thing is AT&T;'s misguided response: We appreciate and value all customer feedback. We learn from it and it helps us serve our customers better. Without question the surest indication of custome...
