    Apple's event for "exciting new devices" is just around the corner. While pretty much everyone is laser focused on any and all information pertaining to an "iTablet", let us not forget that January is also the time in which we get to see up and coming info on new iPhone developments. A few of BGR's ever impressive ninjas have done it again with iPhone OS 4.0. So what's in store that we can now sorta kinda claim? Multi-tasking: Quoting BGR's sources..."A few new ways" to run applications in t...
  • WinMo 6.6: Is it real or not?

    After yesterday's little mini rant on the state of Microsoft's/WindowsMobile affairs, I was feeling pretty disappointed. I mean, as much as I love to rip on them, I'm eager to see something new and exciting from them. At this point, we could call any report or "leak" nothing but unsubstantiated rumor. Though when big hitters such as Bloomberg start giving their own nod to such rumors, you know something has to be up. In regards to that little tidbit above, Bloomberg is joining the many i...
  • Symbian^4 pictures show the *almost* newness to drop by late 2010/early 2011.

    If you frequent Gadgetsteria, you'll probably know that I'm not too fond of Symbian in it's current form. I mean, it hasn't really changed all that much since 2004. While others have moved well on past, Symbian still continues to struggle on revamping and revitalizing itself. Help is on the way in the form of two major updates however: Symbian^3 and Symbian^4. The former is more of a be all end all bug fix/optimization build that will bring with it stability and speed, prepping phones ...
  • Microsoft continues the wheel spinning. WinMo 6.6 to drop February 2010. WinMo7 sometime before 2020.

    With each and every passing day that Microsoft doesn't release WindowsMobile 7, they make their job and reliance on WinMo 7's success all the the more greater. I don't think it takes much imagination to think about what will happen to Redmond if WinMo 7 tanks. End of the line me thinks. So just how soon can we expect WM7? Early reports pegged the next mobile OS from Microsoft at late 2010. Those dates as of late have slipped back as far as late 2011 -- a full year later than originally plan...
  • WinMo 7 coming in 2010. Wait, no it isn’t. It is. Ha, just kidding, it isn’t….again.

    The roller coaster of emotion that Windows Mobile fans' are on isn't for the faint of heart. Being stuck with WinMo 6.5.2 when the big champs such as iPhone, Android, and webOS are so much nicer to look at and use is no doubt tugging a few heart strings. This forthcoming news isn't going to help either. Several industry sources (according to Cellular-News and Brighthand) are releasing grim outlooks for Windows Mobile fans hoping for a late '10 release of WinMo7. According to those sources,...
  • WinMo 6.5.3 to preclude WinMo 7. Keep us ever waiting for what we really want.

    I think it's safe to assume pretty much any and every WinMo fan still out there is ready for WinMo 7. Microsoft however has other plans as a blurb on a MSDN page mentions a version 6.5.3. I'm all for incremental updates and constant tweaks here and there, but WinMo 6.5 in it's entirety needs more than a few tenths added to it's version number. Not to mention, any resources spent on prepping, launching, and supporting 6.5.3 would be better spent on version 7, don't you think? WinMo 7 couldn't...
  • Moto CLIQ rooted!

    Android lovers and Cliq users rejoice -- the Motorola Cliq has officially been rooted. If you're looking for custom goodies such as honest to goodness themes (instead of home replacements) and a few other hacked items you're good to go. However, if you're real intentions are to install some tweaked ROM's (hello HTC Sense on your Moto Cliq) hold off for a bit longer. According to those responsible for the root -- TheDudesAndroid of ModMyMoto -- it isn't yet ready to install "" files....
  • 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...
  • Moto Milestone firmware w/ multitouchy goodness stuffed in Droid. ROM coming “within days”.
    by Mike
    Posted December 17th, 2009 at 6:32 am
    Android's openness and easily tweakable nature is quickly making it a hackers dream. If you don't like something, fix it. In regards to the Droid, the biggest shortcoming many have voiced is the lack of multitouch support within the browser specifically as the Droid does actually have multitouch. (Just look at Dolphin browser on the Droid -- it's built in, Google just didn't take advantage of it.) Watching the video (below) is enough to make my mouth water and get all giddy inside. But wh...
  • “The other fish in the sea”: Android 2.1 ROM ported to G1
    by Mike
    Posted December 15th, 2009 at 10:12 pm
    And naysayers were claiming the G1's days were numbered. Heck, I won't argue it's chin is getting pretty damn old. But that doesn't stop the vivid developer community for making the best of what the G1 has hardware wise. "Teh Dust" from xda-forums has no doubt been spending the last collection of hours locked away in some dark corner with a computer typing out sweet nothings into it's ear and pushing all the right buttons to align Android 2.1 (Flan) in a way that G1 users can surely appreciat...
  • Swipe for Android demoed on screen

    Posted December 15th, 2009 at 4:21 pm
    If you haven't heard, the next up and coming touchscreen tech is Swipe. It is an alternative method to inputing -- in this case sliding -- text onto a touchscreen device. Instead of tap tap tappin' away, Swipe users can simply slide their finger from one letter to the next providing quick and fluid firing of words and thoughts. This innovative new mobile app was first seen and launched exclusively on the Samsung Omnia II. That phone in particular is nothing special -- at least to more ha...
  • Motorola one-upping Android Market with their own app store: SHOP4APPS
    by Mike
    Posted December 14th, 2009 at 7:21 am
    Oh how I hate word tricks and all caps when naming a product or service. Motorola however is a long time fan of all caps so it's nothing new I guess. Grammatical nitpicking aside, at first glance Motorola's attempt at their own app store seems as "too little too late" with many people thinking in their heads "why?". I myself asked that very same question until I read a little further into what SHOP4APPS would offer. Besides your now common library of apps and categories to run through, the b...
