  • Afraid of spying eyes? Want a BlackBerry Tour? Sprint has your back.

    Consumers and consumer based smartphones are dominating in the current market. But that doesn't mean devices marketed towards corporate users are going away anytime soon. While the recent adoption of cameras on just about every BlackBerry (save for the camera-less 8350i and Bold), cameras seemed to be infiltrating ever nook and cranny of RIM's product line. That is hardly the case though as a newcomer featuring one less piece of glass is very soon coming to Sprint: a camera-less 9630 Tour. ...
  • Deutsche Telekom to create global super giant…Cellular monopolies on the rise?
    by Mike

    I'm sure many of you can remember back to the good 'ol days of the AT&T;/Bell monopoly. They got big, then broken down, repeat, repeat. Here we are in 2009 and AT&T; is growing ever larger (again) and another large acquisition is coming to light. The latest reports have Deutsche Telekom eying a potential purchase of Sprint. First off, the GSM/CDMA compatibility is a big hurdle. Now you have two completely different technologies to watch after. Second, the merger would create a giant #2 U.S...
  • Tweet-Tweet comes to Now-enabled Verizon phones

    Even though smartphones and other devices consumer most of my time and interest, there are many people out there who don't like all of that high tech stuff. Instead, simple features are enough to get them through her day. Said users may want an easy and efficient way to use Twitter on their Now-enabled Verizon handsets. Today is your day. Introducing Tweet-Tweet, a Now device Twitter client. The list of features includes: posting tweets, RT, DM, and the ability to follow all from within t...
  • AT&T/T-Mobile/Verizon take note — Sprint announces $70 plan w/ unlimited calling, data, text, MMS

    Why am I crying? Because I everytime I get my AT&T; phone bill (speak of the devil...just received my email notice they're ready to collect), I look at my $95 dues and question the charge. "Am I really getting $95 worth of service?" For many, the answer would be a momentous and resounding "Hell No!". For myself, I came to the same conclusion -- that is, AT&T;, as well as pretty much every other carrier over charges for service. Heck, a paltry 450 minutes and unlimited data costs $70/month. ...
  • Sprint not so giving after all. $100 Pre discount a fluke. Kittens everywhere weep.

    Well this is bound to make a few people upset. It seems the $100 discount applied towards a shiny new Palm Pre was nothing but a fluke. An error. A screw up. According to an email sent to Alley Insider by a Sprint Rep: After further internal review today, the offer of a port-in service credit of $100 to new customers who buy the Palm Pre has been pulled, because it was put into the system in error It's pretty straight forward folks. They don't want your money that bad yet. Were you...
  • TouchPro 2 to land on Verizon for $199.99? Sprint and T-Mobile weep…
    by Mike
    Posted September 4th, 2009 at 12:32 pm
    If you've got a message to send to your competition, undercutting their pricing scheme by a good $100-$150 on one of the most popular WinMo handsets on the market seems to be a good start. While T-Mobile and Sprint both took the higher road and priced their HTC TouchPro 2 WinMo powered handsets at $350, Verizon, according to a reliable BGR source, will be launching an all out assault with extremely aggressive pricing. How aggressive you ask? Try $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate. Yikes! ...
  • HTC and Sprint come together to announce their Android based baby swaddled in plastic.
    by Mike
    Posted September 3rd, 2009 at 9:30 am
    Android junkies have no doubt been following the HTC Hero -- one of the most anticipated Android devices of 2009. While we, the electronically informed knew of it's coming long ago, HTC and Sprint have officially come forward to give us all some set in stone confirmation. Starting October 11th for a rather affordable $179.99 after your typical hodge podge of various discounts, the HTC can be your one true love. As you can see from the image to the left, the Sprint version of the Hero got a ra...
  • Updated BlackBerry Tour (renamed “Essex”) to get WiFi and optical trackpad?
    by Mike
    Posted August 31st, 2009 at 1:12 pm
    For now, take your rumor folder and gently place this one in there to foster and grow. If you thought the BlackBerry Tour was hot stuff now, wait until early 2010 when a lightly updated model is supposed to appear. Along with a new name, "Essex", this new 9630 will get WiFi much like the updated Storm 2 as well as that optical trackpad that is surprising many good 'ol physical button lovers everywhere. For now, this is all rumor without any pictures or internal leaked documents to back it u...
  • OS 5.0 leaked for Bold, Tour, and 8900
    by Mike
    Posted August 26th, 2009 at 6:41 am
    While Bold users may still be recouping from the excitement the latest AT&T; update brought them, the more daredevilish users may be over and done with that already as they've likely had that firmware version for weeks now. While AT&T; is still messing around with oh so old 4.6 Bold firmware, the real action is in the 5.0 scene. Some brave developer or insider with special access to pre-release BlackBerry OS builds was kind enough to open the door and let loose versions of the 5.0 software for...
  • Samsung InstinctQ packin’ Android gets spied!

    Things for team Android are finally starting to pick up. What was a lackluster and slow moving year in 2008 is making strides in the right direction in 2009 as Android handsets from various manufacturers are starting to crop up. Sprint who had voiced interest in Android when it was originally released to the public on the G1 said that while it was interested, Android wasn't yet mature enough. Well folks, we all know the HTC Hero is coming to Sprint packin' Android and some mighty sweet feat...
  • Verizon showing some back-to-school BOGO/BOGA love.
    by Mike
    Posted August 14th, 2009 at 6:37 am
    Forget BOGO. Verizon's back-to-school sale is now going by the acronym of BOGA. Instead of their usual buy one BlackBerry get a second free, you can now buy one BlackBerry and you can choose not only another BlackBerry, but any other Verizon device, USB modem, mifi, etc. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me. While you do have to weed your way through a rebate, the final outcome is still leaving you better off than if you hadn't come across this deal at all. Seems BlackBerries are becoming an e...
  • Verizon to get low end BlackBerry savior: 8530
    by Mike
    Posted July 29th, 2009 at 5:31 am
    If you just so happened to be one of those CDMA toters in the BlackBerry world, always looking over your shoulder at your GSM frenemies with jealousy and haste as you watch them time and time again get the coolest berries first and even exclusively, you sometimes find yourself questioning your odd yet steadfast alliance to this less used wireless technology CDMA. While the top of the line BlackBerries always leave us speechless and ecstatic, the bottom end needs just as much lovin' too. Not...
