  • 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.

    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...
  • Motorola Sholes in the flesh

    While I could go on and on with senseless ramblings and other useless banter, just taking a minute to stop and really take in what is above you right now is more important. We'll leave on a good note by saying that the upcoming Android love on Verizon has a very nice home on the Sholes. *Picks up drool cup* BGR...
  • Sprint does one for the little guy. Drops Touch Pro2 down to $199 [Update]

    Even though I'm not very well versed (read: not at all) in the Windows Mobile world, the Touch Pro2 is a striking handset with good looking hardware and some pretty decent specs to boot. The sky high price tag a couple retailers such as Sprint and T-Mobile were charging was a huge sticking point however. Sure the TP2 is a good phone, but is it $349 good? Many and I would venture to say most would claim "No". Noticing the math error, Sprint has gone ahead and restored some sense of civility t...
  • 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.

    *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.
    by Mike
    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. ...
  • HTC dual wielding smartphones/platforms on Verizon this fall.

    Posted September 18th, 2009 at 8:02 am
    CDMA users often feel left out when it comes to cool phones and such as their GSM brethren are often first to get all the coolest geeky stuff. This fall Verizon is looking to spruce up their offerings a tad with two promising contestants both coming from HTC land. The first up, the HTC Imagio will bring Big Red their first tasting of WinMo 6.5 come early October packing a 3.6-inch WVGA touchscree, 528MHz Qualcom core, 512MB/256 ROM/RAM, 5 megapixel shooter w/ auto-focus and anti-shake features...
  • Palm still doing a dance in red ink…bleeding money
    by Mike
    Posted September 18th, 2009 at 5:59 am
    If the Pre was supposed to be the saving grace of Palm, I have some news for you: They're screwed. One phone alone can't save a company that has been languishing in mediocrity for some time (such as Palm). It will take multiple releases of innovative and intriguing handsets to get Palm accountants to uncheck the box on the red font square into something a little more business like and classy such as black. I guess you'd like to know the dirty details huh? How about $68mm in Q1 2010 compar...
  • 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...
  • LTE coming to Metro PCS late 2010…others to follow later.

    Posted September 15th, 2009 at 8:20 am
    If you have a need for speed and are already growing tired of constant wait times when loading pages over the ever increasingly saturated 3G arena, Metro PCS has some news that will wet your whistle and give you a second wind to ride out the waiting game that awaits you. Come late 2010, one to several quarters behind any other U.S. cellular provider, Metro PCS is planning to launch their first LTE capable handset on their new LTE network. The dual mode CDMA/LTE handset will reportedly be from ...
