    A few days back we touched on Sprint and LG's exciting announcement planned for CES 2010. Oh my, what could it be? For many, a WiMax device is all but certain. The OS however was sorta kinda up in the air. WinMo or Android? Both are very well possible and probably certain at some point. For the next few days at least, Android has the nod as a new screenshot sent to BGR this morning shows an LG Android device sittin' pretty in system computers. The only thing we do know is that the $1 pla...

    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 "update.zip" files....
  • webOS training at VZW stores starts. Pre/Pixie launch can’t be too far off.

    Back when the Palm Pre was launched, Sprint boasted of their exclusive deal with Palm concerning webOS. (A lot of good that did them...) Verizon countered with an "end of year" release of webOS themselves. Obviously they were a bit too excited as Sprint ended up being correct -- that Verizon wasn't getting any webOS love until 2010. Well, 2010 is just around the corner and tonight we can now feast our eyes upon the very training documents VZW employees are currently consuming, prepping f...
  • Motorola Motus and AT&T to sing sweet sweet music come spring of 2010?

    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...

    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...
  • Verizon offering up Droid/Eris BOGO sale this Friday-Monday?! [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted December 2nd, 2009 at 3:11 pm
    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...
  • BlackBerry Pearl 9100 set loose. [Update: Video added]

    While many CrackBerry addicts live and die by the full qwerty keyboard that resides on their trusted loyal companion, some people just can't deal with all of that width. The heft of a full qwerty BlackBerry (even though small compared to many others) turns some people off. To solve that problem, RIM brought us the 8100 BlackBerry Pearl several years ago. Following up the 8100 was the 8220 which took a slightly different flip phone form factor and retained the suretype goodness. And today we ...
  • A week with the Droid
    by Mike
    Posted November 14th, 2009 at 10:19 am
    Today marks one week and a day that the Motorola Droid has graced the masses. I was one of the many that were eagerly anticipating it's release bringing us the first tastes of Android 2.0 as well as the first Android slider device since the G1. While not perfect, it is truly a good device. I've had many smartphones over the last couple of years and have a fairly robust knowledge of the various platforms. Coming from BlackBerries and iPhones more recently, how does the Droid stack up after a ...
  • Prototype BlackBerry with touchscreen, slide-out qwerty, and webkit browser moved to prototype stage. Release in 2010?
    by Mike
    Posted November 13th, 2009 at 11:29 am
    I remember the day that I read about the rumors of a touchscreen BlackBerry. I was sitting in Chicago O'Hare Airport waiting for a flight to Houston. At that time, scouring the specs on BGR's site left my jaw dropping and my heart racing. That was the pinnacle of my CrackBerry days. I have since moved on to many different platforms though my enthusiasm for the BlackBerry platform has never truly waned. All it will take is one breakthrough device (with better software of course) and my lusts...
  • On device BlackBerry Theme Store launched

    Browsing themes downloads on a BlackBerry device isn't exactly fun, intuitive, or fast. Having a "theme browser/store" in a mobilized version is something BlackBerry users have been clamoring for. CrackBerry, in conjunction with MobiHand are finally releasing such a store bringing easy and fast theme browsing to BlackBerry handhelds. Searching through themes via Category, Newness, etc. give you plenty of ways to find what you want. Go ahead and give it a try. Find out more about the Crack...
  • O2 Germany getting the Motorola Droid Milestone.

    Oh German readers, today is your day. Well, not literally in the sense you'll get any physical gratification, but you'll at least get hope for near future gratification. The Motorola Droid which is far and wide the most anticipated Android phone to date is mere days from a U.S. release. Lucky for Android fans across the pond in Deutschland, they too will soon be experiencing what this Android hype is all about as internal O2 documents showing a rebranded Motorola Droid as the "Milestone" have...
