    Blackberry Storm users who are just starting to get aquainted with and into the rythmn of things with the current first gen Storm may be happy/sad/angry that we now have pictures of the next iteration of the Storm floating around.  From the pictures we can tell that there isn't that big of  a difference.  The sides and back have slight changes.  Perhaps the biggest physical thing we can see right away is that the standard answer/end/back/berry button are now incorporated into the glass/t...
  • Americans love mobile data…first country to surpass $10 billion in revenue

    We all know that the current crop of smartphones from RIM, Apple, and Google/Android coupled with the much greater availability of 3G networks are ushering in a new era of mobile data usage that is literally bringing many carriers and networks to their knees. We often hear of other countries such as Japan, Korea, Singapore, etc that offer either faster broadband speeds, mobile data speeds, etc. However, we don't often hear about the U.S. being first in much of anything technology/gadget rela...

    While many Android users are still waiting for that staggered rollout of Android OS 1.5 "Cupcake", Samsung is already past the hype and is instead looking further forward.  Starting with the hardware, Samsung is expected to let loose two new handsets in Q3 of '09, the Bigfoot and Spico.  Going off of the image above, the Spico (on left) and Bigfoot (not left) will both feature a more spacious 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen display.  The Bigfoot however ups the ante by also including a slide out...
  • Legalized theft: Nokia N97 NAM now available *almost* half off!

    As with many high end smartphones/cellphones, coupled with their widespread nonacceptance from carriers, lack of local availability, as well as their sky high price tag, adoption of said units is often fairly low.  High end Nokia handsets often to ever get to see the light of day in the U.S. for reasons unknown.  However, Nokia, in an effort to desperately make some more money and stop their falling market share is reaching deeper into their pockets to make sure you don't make a "mistake" ...
  • MMS and tethering locked out for AT&T users in latest iPhone OS 3.0 beta 5 build

    Oh god, this isn't the greatest way to start the morning.  Reports are flooding the web of an impending nightmare, the possibility that AT&T users won't have the ability to view MMS or tether their shiny new iPhone 3.0 or even those rocking the new OS.  On top of that, it seems as if a new iTunes 8.2 pre-release 2 is making it impossible to change the carrier file meaning no tethering on AT&T by means of a little hackery.  As the picture above clearly indicates, Apple is either be...
  • Chinese based “SmartQ 7″ actually pretty original/cool…still no chance of state side release.

    While China often gets a bad rep for exporting and endorsing nothing but ripped off/copyright infringed electronics, every once in a while, a somewhat unique and original gadget slips out of the far eastern (or western depending on how you look at it) country.  The Chinese originatlity of the day: the SmartQ 7.  The claim to faim for this internet tablet is at rather large 7 inches and and claimed 48 hour battery life.  Now some may say that the 7" screen size for a tablet is on the small...
  • A few more Pre goodies get slipped.

    The march up to the Palm Pre's early summer release has been bringing with it small leaks along the way.  The latest Pre based rumor to make itself known concerns Office support, Office 2007 support that is.  This will certainly give the Pre a good footing in the corporate world where Microsoft Office is all but the only option for your office work.  A few other promised goods include customizable ringback/ringtones, video recording, and MMS messaging just to name the latest few.  The Pa...
  • Sony Xperia X2 confirmed in the pipeline

    *Not the Xperia X2, 3, 4, or 5* If Sony's Xperia X1 was your pride and joy, I have some bittersweet news for you.  That phone you love so dearly is now soon to be outdated.  Bummer, I know.  But that's how it is in the tech/gadget world.  Besides the slip a few days ago from Skyhook's Ted Morgan, information regarding Sony's next to succeed the X1 is now known thanks to Harold de Kort, the Sony Ericsson Marketing Communications Manager for Benelux.  It seems as if Mr. Kort made a comment...
  • Verizon’s heart growing larger by the day, soon offering free WiFi access to home broadband subscribers.
    by Mike
    Posted May 2nd, 2009 at 2:03 pm
    Verizon hasn't exactly been the nicest most "consumer friendly" company in years past with overly restrictive policies, particularly in their wireless market.  However, lately they have been getting a slightly better image if not from their own powers, from the outright abysmal image of their rivals.  (Such as the ongoing Time Warner fiasco which makes Verizon look like an angel).  Well, it seems as if Verizon is ready to let their hearts grow just a tad larger.  The newly consumer lovin...
  • Microsoft finally jumping head first into smartphone market with phone of their own?
    by Mike
    Posted April 28th, 2009 at 2:13 pm
    The iPhone has enjoyed complete dominance in the younger crowd because of its tight integration with a music download service (iTunes), a very successful App Store, and a UI and device functionality that many manufacturers still have some time before they catch up on. Since the dawn of the iPhone, Microsoft has been included in many rumors telling of an impending Microsoft/Zune phone. Time and time again, Microsoft has countered that they are a software business and leave the hardware desgin...
  • Nokia’s flagship N97 to suffer from weak processor?

    Posted April 28th, 2009 at 7:07 am
    The mobile market, particularly the smartphone market is heating up as mobile web usage and data plan usage both reach towards the skies. With the increase of mobile web usage comes a need for more powerful devices that can take advantage of everything the web has to offer as well as slowly replacing our time spend at typical desktop or laptop computers and instead investing that time into our mobiles. One of the biggest parts of the whole *productive* mobile usage is the processor. A sma...
  • T-Mobile, HTC, and RIM team up for device trade-ins

    That shiny and swanky new Berry or HTC device while the top of your digital world now (or then), will at some point become old and busted.  Or, you simply may just grow tired of it or be completely wowed by the next latest and greatest mobile device.  Whatever the case, T-Mobile, RIM, and HTC want to let you know that they are in fact thinking of you and have teamed up with a pretty trade-in deal.  The gist of the operation includes you sending back your old phone, (must be in working con...
