  • LG LS680 to bring Android and WiMax(?) to Sprint. CES tells all…

    A few days back we touched on Sprint and LG's exciting announcement planned for CES 2010. Oh my, what could it be? For many, a WiMax device is all but certain. The OS however was sorta kinda up in the air. WinMo or Android? Both are very well possible and probably certain at some point. For the next few days at least, Android has the nod as a new screenshot sent to BGR this morning shows an LG Android device sittin' pretty in system computers. The only thing we do know is that the $1 pla...
  • 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...
  • Waze, the social GPS “geo-gaming” app gets holiday theme, foursquare support, and new languages.

    If you haven't checked out Waze yet, you don't know what you're missing. The simple "find all of the state license plates on your cross country trip" now pales in comparison to the scope and cool factor that Waze offers. What started as a simple social GPS app that allowed end users to upload road conditions among other things has grown into a GPS game of sorts -- enticing users to discover new paths to their destinations in order to collect the hidden presents on the map for the chance to win...
  • HTC HD2 not so invincible. Pavement works wonders on HD2’s blemish-free face.

    Even though I'm not a WinMo person I can certainly feel the heartache and pain WMPower User l3v5y must be feeling. While we love to brag about the resilience of modern gadgets -- especially large glass faced smartphones -- this picture above (and inside) go to illustrate that nothing is invincible. You know, a bit of reality now and then keeps us grounded and prevents us from "over testing" our gadgets' strength and durability. In the end, the pavement came out swinging, ultimately dealin...
  • Windows Mobile 7 pushed deeper into 2010
    by Mike

    "Windows Mobile 7 is being pushed further back into the tail end of 2010" -- not exactly the words Microsoft wants to speak nor the words WinMo hopefuls want to hear. Head of Microsoft's UK Mobility Division, Phil Moore, had those bleak words to share today. Windows Mobile 7 should have been released this summer, plain and simple. A 2010 date is bad enough. But quoting Microsoft themselves saying who are publicly announcing "late 2010" makes us wonder how much longer they're going to be rele...
  • HTC Touch.B brings Touch Pro-esque goodness back to market with Android on board.
    by Mike
    Posted December 1st, 2009 at 5:42 pm
    The HTC Touch Pro 2 is a pretty sweet WinMo device. To some, WinMo is a short coming, a flaw, a gimp leg that prevents the Touch Pro 2 from being the true mobile powerhouse it could be. For that I present to you the HTC Touch.B/Rome. The big reason to care about this particular phone isn't necessarily for the hardware but instead for the software that resides within -- Android. Details are nil for the moment. But rest assured that as the sun makes its way towards the eastern sky tomorrow morni...
  • HTC HD2 to be graced with Windows Mobile 7
    by Mike
    Posted November 23rd, 2009 at 5:17 am
    The HTC HD2 is currently the top dog of the WinMo world. It has a massive 4.3" screen which is gargantuan when compared to any other smartphone. Even considering the fact that it is hobbling along with WinMo 6.5 prettified with HTC's Sense UI, the HTC HD2 is a hot phone. Not to mention, the snappy 1GHz processor tucked away within is another reason to gloat over this fine piece of gadgetry. So it comes as no surprise that HTC made a statement announcing a Windows Mobile 7 upgrade for the HTC...
  • After countless delays, setbacks, and missed deadlines, Garmin M20 to come with WinMo 6.5. M20 relevance starts shrinking…NOW
    by Mike
    Posted November 11th, 2009 at 3:12 pm
    You would think that after numerous missed deadlines and broken promises, a company such as Garmin who has been hyping up their Nuvifone offerings for well over a year now would have something that would truly drop our collective jaws. Sadly, with the latest announcement of all new Nuvifone M20's dropping Garmin's proprietary OS in favor of WinMo 6.5, a grim painting is starting to form on this once great concept. This is but one example of how a perfect idea on paper can falter and become a s...
  • Is Android too inefficient?
    by Mike
    Posted October 29th, 2009 at 7:09 am
    In the wake of Android 2.0's grand public unveiling, everyone is talking up how this is the Android we've been waiting for. With a truck load of new and exciting features, Android 2.0 is the most competent competitor to the iPhone and iPhone OS yet. So why does it need to get better? I'll lay it all out right from the start: Since the iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G are powered by a 400MHz processor, why is it that they run circles around not all, but most Android phones, phones with processors rough...
  • Verizon holiday roadmap leaked

    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...
  • Steve Ballmer: “I’m happy with where Windows Mobile 6.5 is now”
    by Mike
    Posted October 22nd, 2009 at 10:02 am
    Only an idiot blindingly defending his company after he knows he and those under him failed would claim such a thing. The overall consensus on WinMo 6.5 is it still sucks while looking a tad prettier. In Gizmodo's multi-part interview with Microsoft's captain, Ballmer defends Windows Mobile saying he's "happy with where 6.5 is at now". But that isn't the only laugh inducing comment. No sir. Not by a long shot. Even more surprising if not ridiculous, he goes on to say that "at the end of ...
  • The original Windows 6.5.1 — now 7 mockups spied!

    Images Property of Pocket Now **Update: Just in case....the bottom images are the new, leaked goodness. The top images are irrelevant relics of a dying dinosaur. I didn't think I would ever construct a sentence, in any language which consisted of Windows Mobile and "pretty damn good" in the same sentence. Based on physical looks alone, Microsoft is finally moving into 2008 with the mockups seen above. One things that is certainly eye brow raising is that according to Pocket Now's tipster,...
