  • Could the Sprint “Moment” be the T-Mobile Bigfoot?
    by Mike

    **Speculation alert!! I am falling hard for Android. So much so I am constantly checking the calendar to see when my contract is up on AT&T; so I can hop back over to my good 'ol friend TMO. Ever since the TMO Android road map leaked several months back, I've had my eye on the "Bigfoot" moniker. I loved the G1's approach: touchscreen and slide out qwerty, though the overall design wasn't quite my cup of tea. However, the mockup pics of the Bigfoot in the roadmaps is actually pretty nifty. ...
  • Sprint does one for the little guy. Drops Touch Pro2 down to $199 [Update]

    Even though I'm not very well versed (read: not at all) in the Windows Mobile world, the Touch Pro2 is a striking handset with good looking hardware and some pretty decent specs to boot. The sky high price tag a couple retailers such as Sprint and T-Mobile were charging was a huge sticking point however. Sure the TP2 is a good phone, but is it $349 good? Many and I would venture to say most would claim "No". Noticing the math error, Sprint has gone ahead and restored some sense of civility t...
  • Instinct HD gets spied. Junior 15 collects at the waist — really.

    In what can't really be seen as a good quality, spied pictures of the Instinct HD stuck between a piece of glass and it's own box are racing around the web this morning showing one very weird character trait. The Instinct HD went off it's diet and instead appears to have packed on the pounds. The mystery shooter of the pictures even went on to say that "it felt like a bloated s30 in your hands". Take it how you want to but when you get called fat and not so nice to hold, something isn't right...
  • BlackBerry Tour high return claims ruffle a few feathers…

    Having a piece of art, geeky art that you and your company have spent so many hours and sacrificed blood and tears for experience a quality problem is a sad sad thing to go through. Understandably, I'm sure RIM is feeling the heat as both Verizon and Sprint BlackBerry Tour's (9630) are getting flack from users because of faulty trackballs. Return rates have been estimated as high as the 50% mark according to both Barron's and a CrunchGear poll -- not a small problem or claim to say the least. ...
  • Afraid of spying eyes? Want a BlackBerry Tour? Sprint has your back.

    Consumers and consumer based smartphones are dominating in the current market. But that doesn't mean devices marketed towards corporate users are going away anytime soon. While the recent adoption of cameras on just about every BlackBerry (save for the camera-less 8350i and Bold), cameras seemed to be infiltrating ever nook and cranny of RIM's product line. That is hardly the case though as a newcomer featuring one less piece of glass is very soon coming to Sprint: a camera-less 9630 Tour. ...
  • Deutsche Telekom to create global super giant…Cellular monopolies on the rise?
    by Mike
    Posted September 14th, 2009 at 8:35 am
    I'm sure many of you can remember back to the good 'ol days of the AT&T;/Bell monopoly. They got big, then broken down, repeat, repeat. Here we are in 2009 and AT&T; is growing ever larger (again) and another large acquisition is coming to light. The latest reports have Deutsche Telekom eying a potential purchase of Sprint. First off, the GSM/CDMA compatibility is a big hurdle. Now you have two completely different technologies to watch after. Second, the merger would create a giant #2 U.S...
  • AT&T/T-Mobile/Verizon take note — Sprint announces $70 plan w/ unlimited calling, data, text, MMS
    by Mike
    Posted September 10th, 2009 at 6:18 am
    Why am I crying? Because I everytime I get my AT&T; phone bill (speak of the devil...just received my email notice they're ready to collect), I look at my $95 dues and question the charge. "Am I really getting $95 worth of service?" For many, the answer would be a momentous and resounding "Hell No!". For myself, I came to the same conclusion -- that is, AT&T;, as well as pretty much every other carrier over charges for service. Heck, a paltry 450 minutes and unlimited data costs $70/month. ...
  • Sprint not so giving after all. $100 Pre discount a fluke. Kittens everywhere weep.

    Well this is bound to make a few people upset. It seems the $100 discount applied towards a shiny new Palm Pre was nothing but a fluke. An error. A screw up. According to an email sent to Alley Insider by a Sprint Rep: After further internal review today, the offer of a port-in service credit of $100 to new customers who buy the Palm Pre has been pulled, because it was put into the system in error It's pretty straight forward folks. They don't want your money that bad yet. Were you...
  • Palm Pixie coming to a Sprint store near you

    Posted September 9th, 2009 at 5:17 am
    If you're down with WebOS and can't wait for the next iteration, want a smaller version of the Pre, or simply have been holding off on all of this webOS business until more devices come out of Palm HQ, I'm happy to say your wait can now officially be over. Introducing the Palm Pixie, the smaller, slider-less version of the Pre. Featuring a more standard candybar design, the Pixie (a.k.a. Eos) houses a smaller 2.63" touchscreen on the front fascia of this equally sleek device. CDMA and EV-DO...
  • Another reason to never venture into a Sprint store: Best Buy Mobile giving you HTC Hero for $180 flat
    by Mike
    Posted September 4th, 2009 at 9:19 am
    If you're even remotely interested in Android, chances are the HTC Hero coming to Sprint has you all in a dizzy. Hardware that received a gorgeous face lift for Sprint, an already awesome mobile OS that is only going to get better and internals that are up to the job, the HTC Hero is the hottest Android device that isn't too far from release. While going through a pesky $100 MIR will get you down to that nice attractive $180 price point, going to any Sprint store will require you to lay down a...
  • HTC and Sprint come together to announce their Android based baby swaddled in plastic.
    by Mike
    Posted September 3rd, 2009 at 9:30 am
    Android junkies have no doubt been following the HTC Hero -- one of the most anticipated Android devices of 2009. While we, the electronically informed knew of it's coming long ago, HTC and Sprint have officially come forward to give us all some set in stone confirmation. Starting October 11th for a rather affordable $179.99 after your typical hodge podge of various discounts, the HTC can be your one true love. As you can see from the image to the left, the Sprint version of the Hero got a ra...
