  • Motorola Opus One gets the full spec sheet lowdown…

    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...
  • Sprint giving up on QChat after short, year long honeymoon.

    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...
  • Boost’s unlimited plan selling like hotcakes…unfortunate side effect: network getting nuked

    Sprint Nextel has had a sickness for the last couple of years concerning the constant bleeding of customers.  Whether it be the $99 unlimited everything plan, the earlier nights and weekends, or even the up and coming Palm Pre, nothing seems to be helping.  However, there was one slight glimmer of hope in Boost Mobile when they announced that they were introducing a $50 unlimited everything which was then and is still by far the cheapest unlimited everything plan by far.  And as would be ex...
  • Motorola i465 CRAMS full qwerty onto rather small handset

    While it is one of Motorola's more unique and classy designs, it hardly appears functional.  Last time I checked my fingers weren't mice sized.  Nit pics aside, it again looks pretty cool.  What else is there to say...?  At this point nothing.  Obviously Sprint/Nextel will be the U.S. carrier lucky enough to launch this fine piece of technology.  Sadly all of the spec geeks will have to go to bed hungry tonight.

  • 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, ...
  • Boost Mobile announces $50 unlimited “all-in” plan

    Boost Mobile is undercutting the competition and is now offering an unlimited talk, text, and web plan for the super low price of US$50!  On top of that, it is a no contract plan so you aren't shackled to it for two years should the need to move arise.  An added benefit of Boosts plan is that it runs on Sprint's Nextel cellular network meaning the plan and users can talk, text, and surf around the country.  In contrast, Cricket, who runs on the MetroPCS network is bound to "home calling...
  • 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...
