    Being that everything in the mobile world moves at break neck speeds, seeing a smartphone an entire year later in the same garb means something -- the manufacturer better be close to pushing out a new model. This constant cycle while frustrating for consumers -- as our phones are new and bleeding edge if for only a few weeks -- is exciting for us geeks. Always having something new to look forward to is what makes us tick. RIM's 8900 has finally hit that golden 1 year of age. The age in w...

    Normally I wouldn't be all that interested in some "leak" of a Chinese bound handset. I don't live in China so why would I want to buy a device designed for China? Easy enough, right? Every now and then however, a foreign device slips by and reveals itself and does catch my attention. One such device is the Motorola XT701. Several weeks ago, the internet was full of Sholes Tablet images depicting a keyboardless version of the Moto Sholes (think Droid). While I like the added physical key...
  • Keystick Keyboard the ultimate multi-functional, ultra portable keyboard.

    Fans and keyboards go together like beef noodles and ranch dressing. Hmmm yummy. While gadgets coming out of Japan often have rather unique and sometimes downright weird uses and styles, there's no denying that they're at least thought provoking. Mobile computing power users may at times need a portable keyboard to go along with them for the wide. We've seen various roll-style keyboards before that are soft, flimsy, and flexible offering up all kinds of options for transporting them. This K...

    A plain, flat keyboard is just so boring. For someone such as myself whom spends most of their day typing away, a good keyboard can make all the difference between a good day and a bad day. Ergonomic keyboards have been around for years claiming to reduce stress, tiredness, and injuries from those living in front of a computer screen. But do they really? At least in my experience with certain ergonomic keyboards, after the initial break-in period of getting used to a goofy shaped contraption...

    Some of us somehow missed out on the common sense bus that passed by each of our hospital rooms at birth. Why it skipped some and made extra long stops at others is unknown. But the fact the matter is, if you're going to have liquids near a computer, put them on a different plane at least so that you'll have a few extra seconds to save your precious electronics in the event of a spill. If that seems like to much work or you like to go swimming with your keyboard, fix your gaze above at the "W...
  • Swipe keyboard ported to Touch Pro 2, Diamond 2, and other VGA+ devices.

    Attempts to artificially limit customers in the digital age, especially when smartphones, OS's, and exclusive programs are involved only pushes hackers and developers harder in opening up the platform or program at hand. For today's "That didn't last long moment", we're looking at the new Samsung Omnia II and it's exclusive "Swipe" keyboard. This new keyboard is unique because it allows you to "swipe" across the board to spell out words instead of having to actually life, press, lift, press. ...
  • Motorola Motus and AT&T to sing sweet sweet music come spring of 2010?
    by Mike

    While my year long honeymoon with AT&T; left me looking for annulment, for my fellow gadget lovers still calling Big Blue home I bring you more hopeful information of AT&T;'s potential first Android device. The Motorola Motus was last in the headlines about three weeks ago when we first caught wind of some leaked specs. But we'll come back to specs in a hot minute. As for the whole rumor of AT&T; picking up the Motus -- well, that is a starting to look a little more likely. AT&T; badly needs an...
  • Nokia N97 price cut in half. 3-year marriage commitment to Bell Canada needed…

    For whatever reason, Nokia phones have failed to really catch on here in the states. I know we've all seen those junk freebie Nokia's that just about every carrier has, using them to inflate their bottom line. But the real meat is that of smartphones. Here in the states and even North America as a whole, Nokia smartphones are often left for those with deeper pockets than most thanks to a lack of carrier subsidizing. $5-$600 phones are simply too much for most end users to pay. Even the most...
  • HTC Droid Eris joing 2.0 camp come Q1 of 2010

    Posted December 4th, 2009 at 12:28 pm
    Not too long ago , -- say a month -- I was trying to decide to I want slightly outdated Android 1.5 and an HTC device or new hotness with 2.0 and the Droid. I chose the Droid. Many others however went the more economical and picked up the cheaper Eris. and boy did they save. Initially only $99 to start with, having HTC's popular Sense UI and the firm understanding that Android 2.0 would eventually come to were reason enough. Your bet paid off. Verizon has made it known that by the end of Q1...
  • Verizon offering up Droid/Eris BOGO sale this Friday-Monday?! [Update]

    If you were holding of on getting an Android device to see what was coming up late this year or just to save a few pennies, it looks like this weekend through monday (December 4-7th) will be your best chance yet. We can pretty much guarantee that the Passion is coming to Verizon late this year rockin' a Snapdragon processor and....need I say more? Snapdragon dreams aside, the Droid and Eris aren't bad phones by any means, each with plenty of life left in them. So what about this BOGO? It per...
  • How’s that Moto CLIQ update doing for ya…?
    by Mike
    Posted December 2nd, 2009 at 2:14 pm
    Motorola CLIQ users have now had a good 12 hours to wring their freshly updated CLIQ's to the ends of their ropes. I have to say that it's an extremely good thing that Motorola pushed out the update they did -- fixing numerous bugs and tweaking app/memory/processor management as to get a grip on that abysmal battery life. But I'm sure like me, many of you are disappointed that you're still stuck with Android 1.5 and weren't upgraded to 1.6 at least. No excuses. Android really needs to watch ...
  • BlackBerry 9100 (Stratus) gets highly detailed on video.
    by Mike
    Posted November 30th, 2009 at 10:50 am
    If the video that revealed itself a week or two back showcasing the upcoming SureType BlackBerry 9100 wasn't quite the greatest thing you'd ever seen (/sarcasm), this new video may come a tad bit closer. The above motion picture clip features a much more thorough tour around the 9100 (Stratus') hardware and software offerings. Going by what we see in the vid, it looks like a rock solid device to keep the SureType line of devices relevant and alive. Just in case you're short on time, you can...
