    **Warning: If you're not a Michael Jackson fan, play this vid with mute'll quickly understand... Not to steal any thunder from CDMA/Verizon users and their new found Jesus Christ Digital Superstar (aka: The Moto Droid), but the GSM Droid steals my attention in the video above. If you're not quite sure you want to crawl into bed with Big Red for the next two years of your life, the video above should give you the needed eye candy and motivation to hold out just a little bit long...

    Don't let the image above fool you, BlackBerries aren't the only thing coming to town. Simply looking at what we have currently seen of upcoming handsets, Verizon already has quite the holiday season forming with the Moto Droid and Eris. Android isn't everyone's favorite mobile OS however (a travesty indeed). For those individuals, a leaked roadmap from VZW highlights everything else that is primed and ready to flaunt retail stores this holiday season. Since we already know about the Dro...

  • Droid Eris (Desire) coming to Verizon on November 6th!
    by Mike

    Talk about fast! The Motorola Sholes (Droid) hasn't even been announced *officially* and now we have this second Android device coming to Verizon. Word is that "Droid" is not simply the latest and greatest Android phone to come to Verizon. Droid is actually the series name meaning many more "Droid" handsets such as the Verizon Eris (Desire) will come through the pipeline. Speaking of the Eris, it's being released on November 6th. No fancy announcement or hype building which is kind of odd s...
  • Verizon, Apple, and the love child that may never be…

    So you're a verizon customer and want an iPhone. Switch. That's your only hope. Why do I say that? Well, besides the sign above which sends a pretty blunt message, after Verizon get's down with their whole DROID marketing campaign bashing AT&T; and the iPhone, do you really think Apple will want to crawl into bed with them and be friends? Stranger things have happened and the repeated rumors of a 4G/LTE iPhone could be true. But are we merely dreaming the impossible dream? Usually when a c...
  • Eric Schmidt cheesin’ it up with unannounced, Verizon branded, HTC made, Android device [Update: It's a Verizon branded HTC Hero]

    How about a nice break from your busy day? Everyone loves games. I especially like guessing games. You? Today's game-o-the-day is "Guess what phone Google's Eric Schmidt is holding". (In case you didn't know, Mr. G himself is the dude on the left.) The name may be a bit cumbersome on the tongue, but that's besides the point. Let's hear your answers folks. **Update: BGR has delivered once again...the phone above in Mr. Schmidt's hands is the Verizon HTC Hero. Notice the design that...
  • Verizon and Google share the same bed

    Who woulda thunk it? While a mere 360 days ago (give or take a few days) these two companies were battling it out over the 700 MHz spectrum rules, they have apparently found common ground and then some -- high school drama I say. The big surprise is the fact that Verizon is doing something no one else in the mobile sphere is doing and actually paying attention to the market, their customers, and what said entities want. They are watching all of this negative backlash directed at AT&T; and Ap...
  • Verizon bound Motorola Sholes gets new name, specs.
    by Mike
    Posted October 1st, 2009 at 5:47 pm
    Well well well. Verizon junkies and Android hopefuls have something to get all hot and bothered over tonight. First up, the Motorola Sholes as it has been called up until this point apparently has a new name: "Droid". I know, you're thinking "how original". The name whether it is Motorola Sholes, Motorola Droid, or whatever else they decide to call it is irrelevant as all we really care about is the specs. What's it packin'? 3.7" 854×480 WVGA capacitive screen (Awesome!) ARM Cortex 500...
  • Verizon CTO claims: “Metered Broadband is the way of the future”
    by Mike
    Posted September 29th, 2009 at 12:51 pm
    According to Verizon's CTO, "Metered Broadband is the way of the future". Apparently someone forget to tell him how the future is supposed to work. Look at the title and give yourself a minute to think. Who does this benefit? Obviously the company doing the metering and billing. While on one side, metering is a legitimate answer to raise more revenue for businesses as heavier users pay more, the thought of metering usage and having tiers still doesn't sit well with me. It makes sense...
  • Verizon decides against Palm Pre. iPhone deal behind closed doors? Palm gets a face smack.
    by Mike
    Posted September 25th, 2009 at 6:24 am
    *Rumor & Speculation warning.....!* I'm sure you've seen the articles detailing the recent smackdown Verizon dealt to Palm. If's a very quick recap. Verizon was more than likely prepping to get the Pre early next year bringing Verizon customers one of their first tastes of a "modern" smartphone. However, that same company that was bragging about having the Pre right around Sprint's launch is now singing a very different tune as the are reported to now be passing over the Pre.....

    Have a thing for skateboarding dogs, fart lighting frat boys, and zany cats? YouTube has long been your go to haven for such videos. BlackBerry Storm owners on Verizon's network while able to manually download the YouTube app for sometime will now be greeted by a new YouTube icon on their desktop giving them a friendly reminder. The first time you click on the link you'll notice that it is merely a shortcut to download the actual app. After which the "icon" will launch an actual app. If yo...
  • BlackBerry Tour high return claims ruffle a few feathers…

    Posted September 18th, 2009 at 1:25 pm
    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. ...
