    Remember those BlackBerry Storm still shots that leaked out from the internal Verizon employee announcement just a few hours ago? The entire video from which the screens were captured has now leaked online. The video quality is a bit like being 3 shots in and sitting on a tilt-a-whirl, but if you’re itchin’ for Storm information and the stills just aren’t doing it for you… Read More

  • NetShare gone from the App Store for good

    Throughout the month of August, Nullriver‘s NetShare application, which allowed iPhone users to utilize their handset’s 3G/EDGE connection as means of connecting their computers to the internet, was in a constantly wavering state of peril. After a brief (as in hours) stint on Apple’s App store, it was taken down. Days later it returned, albeit only for a brief while. After… Read More

  • BlackBerry Storm images leak out from Verizon employee briefing

    Some tipster managed to sneak their camera phone out to snag some shots during today’s internal Verizon employee briefing on the BlackBerry Storm. One’s a basic product shot, while the other two show the handset’s browser in landscape and portrait orientations. Sure, the shots sort of look like they were taken from the inside of a space helmet during a snow storm, but this… Read More

  • HTC Touch 3G product page spotted early, too

  • Enthusiasts bring TouchFLO 3D interface to a bunch of additional HTC handsets

    The crew over at XDA-developers never ceases to amaze. This time, they’ve managed to snatch a huge chunk of the look-and-feel from the TouchFLO 3D interface running on the HTC Touch Diamond and HTC Touch Pro, repackaging it as “TouchFlo 2D” for use on an impressive number of other HTC handsets. So far, they’ve got it up on the HTC Elf, Polaris (Touch Cruise)… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson: Xperia brand "not tied" to Windows Mobile

    Anytime there is discussion about Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X1, you can almost guarantee that someone will chime in with “Yeah, too bad it’s running Windows Mobile.” While there isn’t much hope at this point for anyone dying for an X1 powered by anything but Microsoft’s platform, that might not be the case for future Xperia handsets. According to Magnus… Read More

  • BlackBerry Storm prep papers show up at Verizon stores

    Click image for the embiggened version Today’s supposed to be the big news day for the BlackBerry Storm on Verizon and, lo and behold, documents prepping Verizon employees for the news have started hitting desks.

  • AT&T set to roll out BlackBerry Bold in Week 4 of September?

    According to BlackBerryNews, some “internal information” from the AT&T camp is pointing at a Week 4 release for the BlackBerry Bold. Which would be awesome news, if everyone hadn’t expected this handset to be released 5 separate times already. Peter of CrunchGear was sick of the pushback nonsense back in July.

  • HTC Touch HD product page spotted a bit early

    The gadget loving internet first heard of the HTC Touch HD through a handful of spy shots that hit the internet last week, so it seems almost appropriate that its first official debut was pushed into the spotlight a bit earlier than HTC apparently intended. One way or another, some crafty gent found himself at a full-blown HTC Touch HD product page complete with visuals and specs galore before… Read More

  • Flutter: It's MMS for the iPhone.. sort of.

    Little known fact: Steve Jobs has a time machine. No, not the OS X 10.5 “Time Machine” backup system. An actual Sherman-and-Mr.Peabody time machine. He doesn’t use it often, because he kind of considers it cheating. The last time he used it was right before the launch of the original iPhone. He traveled forward 30 years, only to find that no one used picture messaging on… Read More

  • SNL tears into the T-Mobile Fav 5 commercial

    http://www.hulu.com/embed/0Jj6zSP684dbae0cMGbvPw Just a bit of fun for anyone checking in on an otherwise slow Sunday, straight from last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live. The show itself was hit-or-miss from sketch to sketch, but this one had us rolling. Read More

  • ASUS taking on the Omnia with a 5-MP WinMo handset of their own?

    Wuh-oh. Looks like the Samsung Omnia might soon have a heavy-handed challenger in the 5 MP Windows Mobile 6.1 handset arena. The specs are in no way official until ASUS gets around to makin’em so, but heres what can be gleaned from the shots: it has got a trackball in place of the Omnia’s optical sensor, a front facing camera, 3g, WiFi, Bluetooth, a solid resolution touch… Read More
