  • 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...
  • The camera phone in 2011: 20-megapixels, 1080p video recording.

    Gushing over the 8+ megapixel camera phones grabbing all the headlines and attention in 2009? Psh, that's nothing compared to what 2011 will bring us. Broadcom announced today a new processor of theirs that will usher in a new era and raise the bar as far as mobile picture/video taking is concerned. The chip, named the Broadcom BCM2763 VideoCore IV Processor will enable mobile phones and other MID's to support Full HD 1080p video recording as well as 20+ megapixel stills. But that's not ...
  • Upcoming OPPO Android device to rise from the shadows?

    If none of the current crop of available Android devices nor those of imminent releases such as the Xperia X10 and Nexus One are doing it for you, perhaps a new Android device from rather obscure (to me anyway) OPPO will float your boat. The device at this time has no name, no identity, and likely no friends with little information except for a couple of pictures. Looking at the image above, it's easy to see that this won't exactly be the thinnest Android device to date though still comes ...
  • Nexus One animated backgrounds in all their motion picture goodness.

    So far there haven't been too many videos of the Nexus One pushed out onto the web. It's mostly been still pictures or one of ten million videos highlighting the boot up animation. Exciting stuff indeed. How about something a little different such as a peek at those animated wallpapers that everyone is talking about? The animated wallpaper in the video is only one of many I'm sure but it gives us a good look at how it performs on the Nexus at least. It'll be interesting to see how the a...
  • Gaming Consoles on the way out. Mobile devices to replace big, bulky units in as little as 5 years?

    Are gaming consoles, the very thing that has kept many a geek enthralled for years, on the way out? Is their relevance slowly disappearing as mobile devices become more and more powerful with scalable options and outputs that are ever increasing? To highlight this simple though looming question, look at the iPhone. While on the device itself the hardware isn't too spectacular compared to current gaming champs such as the Xbox 360 and PS3, the iPhone is quickly pushing the idea of mobile gam...
  • Android Market hits 20,000 apps!
    by Mike
    Posted December 15th, 2009 at 10:19 am
    Apple may have surpassed the 6 digit mark when raw available apps are concerned, but a myriad of other factors make the Android platform and Android Market equally tempting. With 2009 rounding out rather favorably and 2010 already shaping up to be the year of several eye raising Android devices, the platform as a whole will only grow. If app counts are anything to go by, Android is in deed on the way up as today the Android Market finally moved passed 20,000 available apps for download. S...

    Regardless if you feel the Nexus One is the almighty "Google Phone" that lives on both sides of the "it does/doesn't exist fence", one thing is for sure -- it's hot. The Snapdragon processor and WVGA 3.7" OLED display are drool worthy, equalling up to the most hotly anticipated Android device yet. (Droid it was nice being on top while it lasted). The carrier free w/ T-Mo buddy app is a nice touch, and rumors of a Google provided subsidy round out some of the more notable and interesting facts...
  • White House phone inventory goes old school…
    by Mike
    Posted December 14th, 2009 at 9:34 pm
    While we'd like to think of that the White House of all places in the country would employ some sort of high tech form of mobile device inventory, from the picture above we can see that simply isn't the case. No sir. There isn't any advanced monitoring chip, no fingerprint/BlackBerry add-on, and no retina scanner built into the camera. It's good 'ol sticky notes for the fine leaders of our country. The only sad thing that I've come to realize is that a politician ("Rice" in the picture a...
  • HTC HD2 not so invincible. Pavement works wonders on HD2’s blemish-free face.

    Even though I'm not a WinMo person I can certainly feel the heartache and pain WMPower User l3v5y must be feeling. While we love to brag about the resilience of modern gadgets -- especially large glass faced smartphones -- this picture above (and inside) go to illustrate that nothing is invincible. You know, a bit of reality now and then keeps us grounded and prevents us from "over testing" our gadgets' strength and durability. In the end, the pavement came out swinging, ultimately dealin...
  • Nexus One passes FCC with Tri-band US 3G support!
    by Mike
    Posted December 14th, 2009 at 6:24 am
    The claims of a "Google Phone" are gaining momentum this morning. Just to throw it out there, now I'm finally starting to wish I would have waited a *tad* longer before picking up the Droid. I love it and all, but the Nexus One is hott (two T's hott!!) even without a physical qwerty. Personal lust behind us, the Nexus One has inched step closer to our hearts and hands this morning as pictures of it sailing through the FCC have gone public. Any additional info or shots of Android 2.1 won't b...
  • Verizon Palm Pixie passes FCC? 2010 launch all but confirmed?
    by Mike
    Posted December 13th, 2009 at 9:52 pm
    Palm has had a rather tough time so far getting webOS off the ground. The Pre has more or less done pretty good though it's short of what I'd call a blow out success. Still, Palm still has some fight (or is it just reflexes on a dead carcass now...?) left in them. The Palm Pixie isn't as high end as the Pre, but it's purpose in life isn't to steal the hearts and minds of the high end market. The Pixie is meant to bring up the bottom end -- to usher in droves of new users who may not have had...
  • Acer A1 comes state side. Passes FCC with AT&T 3G bands in tow…
    by Mike
    Posted December 11th, 2009 at 2:06 pm
    AT&T; has remained mum on any mentioning of Android or when the carrier might even begin to sell devices with Android. Chalk it up to their love fest with Apple. AT&T; users deserve an Android option. Now that all three other big carriers have at least one Android device with many more in the pipeline means AT&T; can't afford to sit this one out much longer. With that said, we can always look towards the FCC directories and documents for early information of handset releases. The Acer A1 h...
