    Today's list-o-3G releases via T-Mobile is one of the shorter lists so far consisting of two lonely cities. Bellingham, WA Norwalk, CT *sinister voice*: Speed. Pure, blinding speed... Androinica > @TMobile_USA ...
  • AT&T Wireless CEO hints what we’ve known all along: iPhone exclusivity coming to an end.

    Don't come here looking for an exact date relating to the day the iPhone is set free or a new U.S. carrier you can look forward to switching to as I don't have that information. What I do have however is mounting evidence that AT&T;'s iPhone reign is nearing the final curtain via reports from the companies freshly released earnings reports and via CEO Ralph de la Vega himself. Mind you, nothing blatant was said. But the tone of his announcement can only mean good things for us: We have a le...
  • Sidekick outage a result of inside sabotage & “Dogfooding”? [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted October 14th, 2009 at 6:17 am
    **Update: Microsoft's pet unicorn works wonders as they announce that "most, if not all" customer data lost during the great Sidekick slaying of '09 is restored or soon to be. Whew! So, conspiracy or simply mechanical failure mixed with a pinch of human error? **Update 2: A word from a TechCrunch via Microsoft: We have determined that the outage was caused by a system failure that created data loss in the core database and the back-up. We rebuilt the system component by component, r...
  • Nokia Booklet 3G a waste of money, time.
    by Mike
    Posted October 13th, 2009 at 12:32 pm
    Nokia's freshly announced "Nokia Booklet 3G" may have a few ears and eyes perked. I mean, a subsidized "high end" netbook with 3G coverage surely seems like a sweet deal on paper. That is until you get all the details. After scouring over countless reviews and hands on picture galleries and videos, I've come to the simple conclusion that the Nokia Booklet 3G sucks. It's a big waste of money (as is any "netbook") at $299 up front with a $60 monthly offering going to big blue, even though it...
  • T-Mobile begs sidekick users for forgiveness. Offers gifts in return.

    In case you were wondering, even though I haven't said much, ok, anything about the whole T-Mobile/Danger debacle, there are things people should see. T-Mobile's official apology and offering of gifts is one of them. The word: We are thankful for your continued patience as Microsoft/Danger continues to work on preserving platform stability and restoring all services for our Sidekick customers. We have made significant progress this past weekend, restoring services to virtually every custom...
  • iPhone decimated AT&T’s network. No. For real.
    by Mike
    Posted October 8th, 2009 at 9:05 pm
    Yes, I knock AT&T; and generally have a sick sense of fun when doing so. Though after looking at the graph I *almost* feel bad for them. That is until I remember that till this day, two years, later their network is getting worse, not better. With more and more money coming from data plans, one has to question where it's going. Think an 18-fold increase and pushing the blame off on the FCC for not giving you enough spectrum fast enough is a valid excuse? Gear Log ...
  • AT&T claims network needs “more work” before iPhone tethering can be unlocked
    by Mike
    Posted October 8th, 2009 at 9:07 am
    While such news is nothing new, AT&T; is still standing by previous statements made in regards to iPhone tethering -- that is, that the network needs further work and upgrades before such a feature can launch successfully. Other examples of needed work were seen with the delay of MMS and VoIP apps on the iPhone, though, this past month and more recently this week have seen reversals on both stalemates. Tethering still remains a locked down feature however as in plain terms, their network simply...
  • TMO getting Touch HD2 soon
    by Mike
    Posted October 4th, 2009 at 2:24 pm
    The Touch HD2 isn't a secret. It's a monster 4.3" display, 1GHz processor, 5mp camera toting beast. Such a device will certainly please power users with plenty of speed on tap as well as a gorgeous display to stare at. The fact that TMO was getting this monster wasn't a secret. Neither was the *soon* release date that is sure to be approaching. What better evidence of an impending release than pictures of the device of lust on in-store computer systems? As you can see, this little gem abov...
  • Apple looking to lock down future products even more? Seeking new patents to lock down devices.
    by Mike
    Posted October 2nd, 2009 at 8:39 am
    Apple has long been known for their closed ecosystem that their products live within. While it has some major pluses such as tight integration among products being a top feature, 3rd party support and "outside" services are greatly restricted. Along these lines, the App Store follows this iron grip approach that Apple has become known for. Even still, the App Store is the undisputed champ when it comes to mobile application market. Though, the closed ecosystem is starting to show it's true c...
  • T-Mobile not wasting any time…pushing 1.6 update out now. [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted October 1st, 2009 at 5:48 am
    Well that was fast. Just a mere day or two ago we wrote about Android developer units getting builds of 1.6 (Donut) and that if all went well a public release would follow soon after. I didn't realize they meant that soon after. Early adopters (that means you G1 owners), or more importantly, "select G1's" will get the 1.6 update pushed to them sometime today with the newer, more touchy feely brother (MyTouch) having to wait another 24hrs. or so. The staggered rollout will give TMO some contr...
  • Satellite/Cellular Hybrid phone coming to AT&T
    by Mike
    Posted September 30th, 2009 at 12:25 pm
    Want to make a call or send a text but can't because your normal AT&T; phone keeps dropping calls? *Soon* you'll be able to look no further than the Genus. A love child created between new found partners TeraStar and AT&T; are aimed at bringing expanded coverage to remote areas via satellite. The handset will allow users to "seamlessly" switch between satellite and cellular networks without hiccup. While the Genus is being marketed towards more government and utility companies, AT&T; and TeraSt...
  • iPhone users love their phone, HATE the network. *Shocker*
    by Mike
    Posted September 30th, 2009 at 7:50 am
    I've complained about AT&T;'s performance enough for several people. And apparently my feelings of ill will and malice aren't alone as a recent study conducted by CFI Group which polled over 1,000 AT&T; iPhone users on their device and network. The first test point centered around the users perception of owning their ideal phone. No surprise here. The iPhone scored a 92% rate here -- top of the class. Trailing further behind, Android and Pre users rang in at 77%, BlackBerry (73%), Treo (70%...
