  • Nokia’s Symbian Belle Teaser Gives Us Exact Arrival Date, Fails To Tease

    Nokia’s Symbian Belle Teaser Gives Us Exact Arrival Date, Fails To Tease

    Teasers are tricky. Companies have to find a way to get you excited about something without telling you what that something is, which can be difficult. It’s especially difficult to keep the secret product under wraps when the teaser file is named after the product. That said, Nokia’s Symbian Belle teaser is now more of an announcement than anything else, and we now know the… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Reveals “Live With Walkman” Android Smartphone

    Sony Ericsson Reveals “Live With Walkman” Android Smartphone

    Sony Ericsson knows how to do Facebook. A social network can’t be the only selling point of the phone, like on the HTC Status — there has to be something else. For gamers, SE brought Facebook into the mix with the Xperia Play. Now, music fans are getting the same love. This morning, SE unveiled the Live With Walkman smartphone featuring a button for instant music access and… Read More

    Review: Energizer Dual-Zone Inductive Charging Pad

    Short Version: Energizer’s Inductive Charging pad gets rid of the wires, looks nice, and just makes getting your charge on easier. Unfortunately, the accessories needed to use the charging pad make your phone fat and ugly. Read More

  • Microsoft: Windows Phone Mango Is Done, Manufacturers Just Need To Release It

    Microsoft: Windows Phone Mango Is Done, Manufacturers Just Need To Release It

    Well, this is something new. Here in the tech world, we hear about delay after delay — but very rarely does a company step out and say: “Hey! We’re ahead of schedule!” Today, Microsoft was that company, and the product was Windows Phone 7 Mango. Read More

  • Apple’s “Inaccurate Evidence” Debacle, Part 2: Smartphone Edition

    Apple’s “Inaccurate Evidence” Debacle, Part 2: Smartphone Edition

    Apple has again submitted what the blogosphere is calling “inaccurate evidence” in its case against Samsung. A photo found on page 77 of Apple’s complaint to the Hague district court in the Netherlands shows the Samsung Galaxy S next to the iPhone 3G. And guess what! Apple screwed with the dimensions once again. But don’t freak out. This may not be as big of a deal… Read More

  • HTC Releases Evo 3D Bootloader Unlock Tool

    HTC Releases Evo 3D Bootloader Unlock Tool

    It’s only been a few days since HTC got its bootloader unlock tool up and running, but unfortunately it was only made available to owners of the European/international version of the HTC Sensation. Obviously that didn’t do a lot to help our American hackers get what they want. But today, HTC threw some love our way making the bootloader unlock tool available to owners of the HTC… Read More

    Leaked Droid Bionic Ad To Run Sunday, Dual-Core LTE Magic To Follow

    It’s been an excruciating wait for the Droid Bionic — a truly painful seven months. But over the past month, we’ve gotten our hands on little bits of relief. Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha promised a “September” release in late July, and just a week later, IGN found Verizon’s device road map which pegged the Bionic for a September 8 launch date. Today we… Read More

  • My Virtual Boyfriend Is Awkward, Funny, And STD-Free

    My Virtual Boyfriend Is Awkward, Funny, And STD-Free

    Dating sucks. Nine out of ten times, your suitor is a jerk. The other ten percent of the time, they pretend not to be a jerk only to show their true jerk-like colors a few weeks later. This is the world we live in, and there’s really nothing we can do about it. Oh wait… That’s right. There’s an app for that. Straight ladies and gay gentlemen: Wet Productions… Read More

  • Google Maps Adds A Weather Layer

    Google Maps Adds A Weather Layer

    Location and weather go together like peanut butter and jelly. So it only makes sense that our favorite map tool, Google Maps, starts to bring weather into the picture. According to the official Google Blog, that’s exactly what’s happening. The weather layer will not only show you temperatures and conditions in your area, but display weather info for the entire globe, which should… Read More

  • Video: Crunchy Logistics Brings Multi-Touch To A 150″ Conference Table

    Video: Crunchy Logistics Brings Multi-Touch To A 150″ Conference Table

    This is one of the cooler things I’ve seen in a while. Think Microsoft Surface meets Minority Report, minus the bald lady that predicts the future. It’s a multi-touch conference table from an Orlando-based company called Crunchy Logistics, and comes in five different sizes. Read More

  • Nokia’s Anna Update For Symbian^3 Devices Is Ready To Roll

    Nokia’s Anna Update For Symbian^3 Devices Is Ready To Roll

That said, owners of the Nokia N8, C7, C6-01 and E7 will get to download the Symbian Anna software update starting today. The update includes improvements to the browser and maps, along with new icons. Read More

  • Logitech’s G300 Gaming Mouse Ditches The Thumb Buttons For Lefty’s Sake

    Logitech’s G300 Gaming Mouse Ditches The Thumb Buttons For Lefty’s Sake

    When it comes to gaming, the better the mouse, the better the gamer. Logitech today announced its next-gen G-series gaming mouse, the G300, and if this thing doesn’t give you a competitive edge, you need to spend more time practicing. With nine customizable controls, you may not have to use the keyboard at all, meaning all the control you could want rests nicely under the palm of your hand. Read More

  • Verizon Welcomes Googorola Deal In Light Of Escalating IP Wars

    Verizon Welcomes Googorola Deal In Light Of Escalating IP Wars

    While Verizon didn’t flat-out advocate the proposed Googorola deal, the company was the first U.S. carrier to comment on the merger, saying it welcomed the possibility that these patent disputes might calm down, reports the Wall Street Journal. Apple and others have been on a war path lately, aiming to dismantle Android by attacking major Android OEMs like HTC and Samsung. With… Read More

  • T-Mobile Lands The BlackBerry Bold 9900, Its First 4G BlackBerry

    T-Mobile Lands The BlackBerry Bold 9900, Its First 4G BlackBerry

    The BlackBerry Bold 9900 just hit T-Mobile shelves, but wait just a second before you bolt to run and grab one. The handset from RIM is launching for business customers only until August 31, at which point the rest of us can get our BBM on. Of course, BlackBerries are built with the enterprise in mind, so it kind of makes sense that suits would get first dibs. Then again, RIM isn’t… Read More

  • HP Pre3 Makes Stealthy Entrance Into The European Market, U.S. To Follow

    HP Pre3 Makes Stealthy Entrance Into The European Market, U.S. To Follow

    The HP Pre3 launched in Europe today, and oddly enough, HP had very little to say about it. With the TouchPad price falling like a rock, you’d expect that its intended complementary device — and HP’s flagship phone — would launch with more fanfare. But instead HP let the device land in its EuroStore and gave a short response to PreCentral, the first publication to… Read More

  • German Court Suspends Galaxy Tab Injunction In The Apple-Samsung Case

    German Court Suspends Galaxy Tab Injunction In The Apple-Samsung Case

    Hope you’ve got some popcorn and a German law book at the ready because this back-and-forth between Apple and Samsung only gets better and better. Today, the preliminary injunction banning Samsung from selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the EU has been partially lifted. Now before you jump to the same conclusions I did, let me say that this suspension has nothing to do with the false… Read More

  • Samsung Feigned Surprise Over Apple’s EU Injunction

    Samsung Feigned Surprise Over Apple’s EU Injunction

    Samsung’s pants are officially ablaze as reports have surfaced that Samsung did know about Apple’s injunction complaint and had even filed a “Schutzschrift.” In English, that’s a protective pleading, and it was filed almost a week before Apple filed its injunction on August 4. Yet, I seem to recall Samsung saying “The request for injunction was filed with… Read More

  • Microsoft Unveils Mango’s New Games Hub Features And Xbox Live Titles

    Microsoft Unveils Mango’s New Games Hub Features And Xbox Live Titles

    Windows Phone Mango is already primed and ready to compete with iOS and Android, but that doesn’t mean Microsoft is resting on its laurels. Quite the opposite actually. As anticipation builds, Microsoft continues to add features to make this platform even better than what was expected. Today, the company added a handful of new features to the Games Hub, along with the announcement of 14… Read More
