    Android is quickly becoming "the" OS to have. While the software itself is constantly changing, the hardware too is going for a wild ride. If you don't like the current crop of Android handsets, give it a few weeks as the market is changing that fast. For most, GSM is the way to go for Android goodness. But don't discount CDMA too quickly as there are a few gems there as well -- hello Moto Droid and Droid Eris. But many will be quick to point out that in the states at least, GSM and CDMA ar...
  • PTT coming to Android. “Opus One” to bring Nextel their first taste of sophistication?

    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...

    If you're a contractor, dispatcher, or some other typical "business user", chances are you use or at least have seen Nextel/Sprint Nextel push-to-talk phones out and about your neck of the woods, Whether the phones were powered by Nextel's iDen or Sprint's "QChat" doesn't matter as they were essentially the same technology. Now some may have had a hard time deciphering between the two networks and technologies not wanting to pick the inferior network. Such pondering will no longer be required...
  • iDen breaks into 2006 with their first QWERTY phone!

    When you hear the words "Nextel" or "iDen", you usually begin to picture old, thick, and rubber encased phones that are horribly out of date. Well, most of that still applies. However the 'ol iDen network is making some progress. Take for example the new i465, which claims the title of "Nextel's first QWERTY phone"! So what OS will this beast be rockin'? Windows Mobile? Nope! Symbian? Try again. Android? Keep dreaming. Sadly, the first QWERTY title is coming to a "dumbphone". That is, ...
  • Motorola i9 coming to Boost Mobile

    Since the Razr fad ended, Motorola has found itself unable to escape the once iconic handsets styling.  Most of the phones Motorola has released since then have all revolved around the same "thin" look as well as more or less copy over the keypad.  While the Razr was a great phone in its hayday, times have changed and Motoroloa is sadly falling behind.  If you are a fan of cutting edge design and all kinds of features built in to your phone, Boost Mobile isn't really the first carrier t...
  • 8350i rears its head!

    Yes Nextel fans, your day is coming.  The 8350i from RIM is making its way to the public soon.  One of Boygenius' ninjas snuck some pics of the upcoming berry.  As you can see it has more of a "rugged" design.  I personally think it looks pretty cool.  However reports of completely horrible signal are circulating, which, given the Nextel's network doesn't surprise me.  At least Nextel berry lovers have something.   source: Boygenius...
