    Sprint Opens Up Pre-Orders For The iPhone 4

    Sprint has long been Android territory, but today everything changes.

    AppleCare+ Covers Clumsiness, Too

    I drop my iPhone a lot. In fact, since I decided to hang on to my 3GS and hold out for what ended up being a pretty disappointing announcement yesterday, I’ve cared increasingly less each time that thing hits the floor. Once I get my hands on the iPhone 4S… Well, that’s another story. Still, accidents happen all the time and for the cash Apple’s asking, a little… Read More

  • Leaked T-Mobile Roadmap Promises Six New Devices On November 2

    Leaked T-Mobile Roadmap Promises Six New Devices On November 2

    It looks like Christmas may come early for T-Mobile customers. Internal documents show four device launches this month and twice as many in November, including the Samsung Galaxy 7.0 Plus tablet.

    FCC To Strengthen Location Accuracy Requirements For All Carriers Using E911 By 2019

    After years of having a GPS-equipped phone, the idea of not having GPS is a little crazy. Even with smartphone adoption rates dramatically increasing, there are still plenty of folks out there with maps and awesome memories. With all of this great mobile technology out there, it’s only fair that those in need of help during times of crisis should be able to count on emergency services… Read More

    Siri: My “Humble” Female Personal Secretary

    Today, Apple introduced us to the iPhone 4S. It’s hard not to feel let down after the iPhone 5 rumor mill was spinning at full force just yesterday (courtesy of the craziest rumor yet), but a couple 4S features were enough to perk up my spirit. One feature in particular, Siri, pretty much blew my mind. It is, far and away, the coolest voice control system I’ve ever heard of, and… Read More

  • BBM For Android App Screen Shots Leaked

    BBM For Android App Screen Shots Leaked

    Well, what do we have here? BBM for… Android? New leaked photos appear to show a beta version of BBM running on an unspecified (and clearly uncared for) Android device. The validity of these shots is questionable, as they were sent to T3 from an anonymous source and a leak of this kind would take about five minutes for a Photoshop noob to complete. However, they do add a little weight… Read More

    Logitech Lands Six-Figure Fine From EPA For Misleading Ads

    Logitech is known for their keyboards and mice, and the company always seems to find new ways to make what should be boring old accessories interesting.

Not a bad idea at all, but the way that Logitech marketed the MX… Read More
