    While new info about the Storm 2 was revealed last week, most importantly, the observation that the Surepress "click" touchscreen was missing, would lead one to assume that said technology won't be present on RIM's next rendition of the love-it-or-hate-it Blackberry. However, after RIM CEO Mike Lazaridis sat down and layed the record straight at D7 yesterday, the Storm 2's typing abilities are now even more in question. Mr. Lazaridis was quoted as saying: "Surepress is here to stay", which a...

    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...

    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" ...

    UK mobile phone buyers in the market for a cheap "feature phone" that eschews traditional and clumsy buttons in favor of a touchy feely screen will have a nice little option starting now.  The device, the "Orange Vegas", is a new low cost offering from Orange UK that is the latest phone to claim the title of cheapest touchscreen phone.  Now we all know that cheap doesn't really ever mean better as features get cut and specs get lower in proportion to the price.  However, the Vegas isn't a...

    Touchscreens are by far the biggest "gotta have it feature" currently on the market.  If you cell phone doesn't have a touchscreen somehow it becomes quite a bit less relevant.  While the latest handsets are being designed specifically for finger friendly use, many older touchscreen phones that are getting newer software ported to them are becoming victims of shrunken screen/clunky navigation syndrome.  Opera saw this developing problem and has responded accordingly.  Debuting "FingerTo...

    MWC has come and gone and many Android faithful are still feeling neglected and unloved.  MWC was hyped up to be the first big event for Android.  However, while a few Android handsets were shown, it was far from the "wow" effect that many had been predicting.  There just wasn't any "omg I gotta have it" moments.  Continuing the talk of disappointment, Motorola hasn't quite revived from the lull since their popular Razr handset went out of style and has been desperately trying to recapt...

    If any of you have a home full of AV equipment you'll know that pain it is to have to constantly switch between a million different remotes.  You'll also hate it when you can find one of those million remotes.  Universal remotes are nothing new as they have been around for many years.  In recent years however, they have become increasingly complex, almost like miniature computers.  Logitechs Harmony 1100 touchscreen remote is the sequel to last years 1000.  The 1100 features a black ano...
