  • Tmo’s Project Dark pricing leaked! [Update]

    I know all you want to see is pictures and prices so I'll get on with it. You might or may not be a tad disappointed. I on the other hand am pretty excited. If the wifey and I go with a 500 minute + unlimited text + web family plan on a contractual agreement, we're looking at a mere $109/month. That may sound like a lot. Mind you it's for two lines and is a much better price than we would get on either Verizon or AT&T.; How is your setup going to fair? Looks like I got a bit too excited....
  • AT&T: “We hate freedom and choice”. Sends letters to employees encouraging them to bash Net Neutrality regulations.

    Is there any more needed? Jim Cicconi, one of AT&T;'s top lobbyists and cronies of choice spent his fine Sunday afternoon carpet bombing AT&T;'s 300,000+ employees with propaganda encouraging them all, their families, friends, and random homeless guy on the street to petition congress to not pass any net neutrality regulations. The key points highlighted in the email include (Per Washington Post): 1.Wireless consumers enjoy a many options for mobile services; 2. Competition in the wireless ...
  • HTC Hero going Blue in 2010

    We all knew it was inevitable that AT&T; would eventually jump in on the Android game. Though I'm sure many hoped they'd be a bit more timely and original. A few of you may see AT&T; as milking the iPhone and it's publicity for all it's worth. While others may believe AT&T; was simply waiting for the right handset to launch Android with. On that note, details of an HTC Hero launch on AT&T; in early 2010 are building, leading to what we all suspected -- that AT&T; will finally launch an Android ha...
  • Moto DROID passes FCC…again. This time with GSM frequencies onboard.
    by Mike
    Posted October 19th, 2009 at 12:33 pm
    Can we get a whoop whoop! The Moto DROID which has so far garnered several high praising early hands on reviews has been spotted trying to stealthily slip through the FCC. But wait, didn't already clear the FCC weeks ago? Why yes, yes it did. Except this time, it's a slightly modified Moto DROID as it is packing GSM frequencies inside. The only part of the FCC filing worth reading: This equipment is a GSM portable transceiver, which operates in the 850, 900,1800 and 1900 MHz PCS band. It...
  • EyeTV reappears in App Store. “Hidden” 3G streaming still present.
    by Mike
    Posted October 18th, 2009 at 11:45 am
    Has Apple changed paces on their "no 3G streaming apps policy"? The reason I ask is that the EyeTV hidden 3G streaming settings we talked about a couple days ago are still present. This is even after Apple pulled the app originally citing the 3G streaming settings as the sole reason. A quick check by searching for EyeTV (iTunes Link) within US, UK, and German App Stores will lead you to the same 1.0 app that was again, originally pulled with the nefarious 3G streaming. So, we come back t...
  • T-Mobile’s New York 3G network super fast. Humming along at 2+ Mbps!
    by Mike
    Posted October 15th, 2009 at 12:03 pm
    AT&T; users may be left wondering aimless around the country searching for speed of any kind, but T-Mobile customers may not wonder very long. T-Mobile U.S.A's 3G footprint while still pretty weak when compared to other big players is apparently helluva fast. Take the screenshot above for example. The shot was captured on a freshly baked Nokia N900 which Mark Guim from The Nokia Blog received as a gift after attending the Maemo Summit in Amsterdam. 2+ megs down is awesome! And that's not ev...
  • Nokia N900 does it like it’s 2007 — No MMS Support!
    by Mike
    Posted October 14th, 2009 at 10:46 am
    Uh oh. Seems like all of those Nokia fans who bashed the iPhone for the last 2-1/2 years for not being able to send a simple MMS message are about to get a rude awakening if they had any hopes of upgrading to the N900. It seems Nokia is pulling an Apple and leaving the ancient technology out of their brand spankin' new device. Ya ya, I get it. MMS is old. Tons of people now have IM or email support on their phones. Awesome! Many more don't and rely on MMS for sending pictures. I can unde...
  • Sidekick outage a result of inside sabotage & “Dogfooding”? [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted October 14th, 2009 at 6:17 am
    **Update: Microsoft's pet unicorn works wonders as they announce that "most, if not all" customer data lost during the great Sidekick slaying of '09 is restored or soon to be. Whew! So, conspiracy or simply mechanical failure mixed with a pinch of human error? **Update 2: A word from a TechCrunch via Microsoft: We have determined that the outage was caused by a system failure that created data loss in the core database and the back-up. We rebuilt the system component by component, r...
  • Nokia Booklet 3G a waste of money, time.
    by Mike
    Posted October 13th, 2009 at 12:32 pm
    Nokia's freshly announced "Nokia Booklet 3G" may have a few ears and eyes perked. I mean, a subsidized "high end" netbook with 3G coverage surely seems like a sweet deal on paper. That is until you get all the details. After scouring over countless reviews and hands on picture galleries and videos, I've come to the simple conclusion that the Nokia Booklet 3G sucks. It's a big waste of money (as is any "netbook") at $299 up front with a $60 monthly offering going to big blue, even though it...
  • T-Mobile begs sidekick users for forgiveness. Offers gifts in return.
    by Mike
    Posted October 13th, 2009 at 5:15 am
    In case you were wondering, even though I haven't said much, ok, anything about the whole T-Mobile/Danger debacle, there are things people should see. T-Mobile's official apology and offering of gifts is one of them. The word: We are thankful for your continued patience as Microsoft/Danger continues to work on preserving platform stability and restoring all services for our Sidekick customers. We have made significant progress this past weekend, restoring services to virtually every custom...
  • SIM card packin’ CDMA phones coming to the states?
    by Mike
    Posted October 9th, 2009 at 2:40 pm
    The recent showcasing of several CDMA handsets powered by SIM cards at the CTIA Wireless trade show means our geeky friends on other continents across the globe may soon be experiencing the best of both worlds some would say -- never ending coverage and quick swaps between devices. The devices shown at CITA such as the Samsung Mpower 699 use a newer form of the aged RUIM SIM card called "OHM". The biggest change between the older RUIM cards and newer OHM cards is that the latter allow users to...
  • iPhone decimated AT&T’s network. No. For real.
    by Mike
    Posted October 8th, 2009 at 9:05 pm
    Yes, I knock AT&T; and generally have a sick sense of fun when doing so. Though after looking at the graph I *almost* feel bad for them. That is until I remember that till this day, two years, later their network is getting worse, not better. With more and more money coming from data plans, one has to question where it's going. Think an 18-fold increase and pushing the blame off on the FCC for not giving you enough spectrum fast enough is a valid excuse? Gear Log ...
