    Think CDMA is dead? Think again (unfortunately). While I may be using a CDMA carrier currently, that doesn't mean I'm tattooing CDMA logos on my body and boycotting anything with a SIM card. As with all tech related material, CDMA has a pretty large group of followers who for whatever reason, aren't planning on moving to GSM anytime soon. Thankfully, those with CDMA technology don't have to sit idle and watch their GSM cousins enjoy all of the 4G fun. The next CDMA based technology will...
  • 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?

    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...
  • 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...
  • Apple tries to help AT&T portray their god awful network as anything but. Fails to highlight the obvious…

    You know, after all the flack that AT&T; has gotten for boasting of a POS network and Apple for stubbornly sticking with them for the last 2-1/2 years, you have to admire AT&T;'s determination. Almost. AT&T;'s Luke Wilson ads that have making been getting some pretty frequent air time on TV go to prove how terrible is at making commercials in their defense. They're pretty much just as terrible as the Microsoft/Seinfeld duo. However, when AT&T; simply can't go on to put together a decent commerci...
  • Verizon’s latest response to AT&T lawsuit claims: Stuff it. You suck.

    Posted November 16th, 2009 at 9:57 pm
    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 ...
  • Sprint HTC Hero “Google Experience” models support EV-DO Rev A. Non-Google units stuck at Rev 0? [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted October 12th, 2009 at 7:47 am
    **Update: All is well in the world again. According to HTC, the problem is actually a rouge text display problem "claiming" to be merely Rev 0 when in fact the phone can actually be in Rev A mode. Whew, crisis adverted. Happy surfing. Well this would certainly be scandalous. It appears that a bit of strangeness is running around the Android world as of the last couple of days with Sprint's HTC Hero officially being released. The problem appears to be centered around said devices manu...
  • BlackBerry Tour high return claims ruffle a few feathers…

    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.

    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...
  • 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
    Posted September 14th, 2009 at 8:35 am
    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...
  • 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...
