  • Nexus One already rooted? (Think they’ll announce that on the 5th?)

    You know, there's something funny about how the Nexus One isn't even official by any one company and yet somehow it's already been rooted. Well, we know Google employees got some early hands on time with gifts from the company they work for. So it was only a matter of time before one of those employees either rooted the device themselves or enlisted in the help of a code talking friend. Either way, score one for the geeks! Remember, rooting your device normally isn't for the faint of heart...
  • Nexus One pricing leaked! $530 without contract. $180 with 2-year T-Mo deal.

    In the market for a new smartphone -- an Android smartphone in particular lacking any physical keyboard? If so, the Nexus One has no doubt been on your radar. "THE" Google/Android phone to have. We've seen the specs over and over as well as blurry video after blurry video with a few clear ones here and there meticulously detailing the hardware and Android 2.1. Awesome. We already know about all of that. The biggest question, the question of price, has so far been elusive -- until now. I...
  • HTC HD2 video showing TMO branding all but confirms what we already knew…

    Regardless of your opinion on Windows Mobile, you have to admit that the HTC HD2 -- all 4.3" of it's glass faced frontal beauty -- is a drop dead gorgeous phone. Currently however, US citizens are left without any official channels to pick up a subsidized or even a US version of the device. That's all set to change in the not too distant future. A video (below) showing a new "2.0.1" ROM showcases among other things, a very familiar magenta boot image that goes "Stick Together" -- a TMO sl...
  • T-Mo 3G rollout update: More cities!

    3G data is a big thing these days. Even if T-Mo is years late to the game, the term "better late than never" seems appropriate here. Of course, some would argue that at some point an appearance isn't even warranted. Aaaaanyway, residents of Wilmington, North Carolina | Fayetteville, North Carolina | Cary, North Carolina and Tulsa, Oklahoma can now light up those freshly tweaked towers near your house, work, and frolic area with all of the mobile data and voice calls you can think of. Just do...

    Grand Rapids (MI) residents: Do you feel something in the air? If so (and even if not) that new sense of "something newness" is due to the new 1700MHz band of 3G that is pulsating through your town's buildings, vegetation, and human bodies. Woot! There's nothing like the feeling of the wind in your hair and the blinding sense that 3G speeds bring to your mobile device. With each new city that is graced with T-Mo's 3G goodness I find myself curious as to real world speeds. We all know wh...
  • Nexus One passes FCC with Tri-band US 3G support!

    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...
  • GSM Droid (Milestone) coming to US retailers. Thick, hard as steel string attached…
    by Mike
    Posted December 11th, 2009 at 1:34 pm
    The Droid is the current "must have" Android gadget. It's sleek, powerful, and pretty darn good all around. US users however are limited to one carrier at the moment -- Verizon. Much like some people won't switch to AT&T; for the iPhone, there are many who feel the same about Big Red. Hey, whatever floats your boat folks. The tale across the big blue pond is slightly different however as GSM is much more prevalent than the ugly step child (aka CDMA). Yesterday the Motorola Milestone (Europe...
  • Motorola working on AT&T/T-Mobile 3G chip in an attempt to bring the two love birds together
    by Mike
    Posted December 11th, 2009 at 1:02 pm
    Imagine the day when you can pick up either an AT&T; or T-Mobile 3G device and move freely between the two GSM carriers without a care in the world concerning 3G abilities. Such a module seems like it would have been a no brainer. If they can squeeze four 2G frequencies on a chip, what the hell is taking them so long to get three 3G frequencies on a chip? I don't know the answer, but I can tell you that Motorola is working on a solution. A new 3G module they're developing would do what many a...
  • T-Mobile beginning roll out of carrier billing for Android smartphones. Completion date: December 30th.

    If using a credit/debit card to purchase Android apps on your T-Mobile branded handset was beginning to become a bit much for you, take comfort in knowing that help is on the way. Starting today, T-Mobile USA is rolling out the carrier billing feature for Android smartphones allowing users to bill Android Market purchases to your cellphone bill instead of a credit/debit card. Much like Verizon is doing for the Moto Droid and HTC Eris, the OTA update will be rolled out slowly -- much slower th...
  • T-Mobile 3G now blanketing South Bend/Notre Dame Indiana!
    by Mike
    Posted December 5th, 2009 at 5:18 pm
    **Attention South Bend/Notre Dame, Indiana: T-Mobile has officially rolled out 3G to your area! Why have am I highlighting one small midwestern town in northern Indiana? Well, for starters I live there. Second, back when I had TMO a couple years ago and all of their 3G talk was just starting, I was eagerly anticipating this fine day. For now I'm running on Verizon because of the Droid. But just like many of you, I'm not partial to any one carrier. Whoever offers the coolest phone at ...
  • Consumer Reports reveals results to Best Carrier Service survey — AT&T gets the caboose.

    Surprised? Ya, no one is surprised. AT&T; finishing last in call quality is a given. To be fair, none of the big four carriers: Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, or AT&T; ranked above 75. Even still, more written evidence of AT&T;'s saturated and broken network is disappointing. But the real disheartening thing is AT&T;'s misguided response: We appreciate and value all customer feedback. We learn from it and it helps us serve our customers better. Without question the surest indication of custome...
  • LG and T-Mobile to bring the Android heat in 2010 and beyond?
    by Mike
    Posted December 1st, 2009 at 12:35 pm
    Don't you love a classic rumor fresh from the mill? I know I do. I generally don't like to get people too excited if there is little case for such emotion, but I'm sure T-Mobile customers and Android lovers won't mind. LG hasn't really had much of an impact here in the states as they have in other countries, say their home turf back in Seoul. Even then, just because you're the favored incumbent doesn't mean it's a set and done deal. Telling signs of a cooling period for LG hardware can bee...
