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

    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

    Despite the fact that the company has a newly adopted OS in the works with Windows Phone 7, Nokia has always promised to continue supporting Symbian, its first born OS. 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

  • T-Mobile Offers Pre-Paid Services, Handsets At Family Dollar

    T-Mobile Offers Pre-Paid Services, Handsets At Family Dollar

    T-Mobile is working hard to grow its pre-paid service. Two weeks ago, the pink carrier signed a deal with 7-Eleven to sell the GS170 flip phone in its convenient stores. As the transition away from Radio Shack continues, the carrier has added another retailer to its list of handset outlets: Family Dollar. Read More

  • Apple’s Evidence In European Galaxy Tab Injunction Was Seriously Misleading… As In False

    Apple’s Evidence In European Galaxy Tab Injunction Was Seriously Misleading… As In False

    Last week the Apple-Samsung patent brawl took a serious turn after Apple won a preliminary injunction banning sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 throughout the European Union, excluding the Netherlands. As we noted, Samsung had no idea any of this was happening until after the injunction had been issued, as is standard procedure in the German court system. Had the South Korea-based company known… Read More

  • AT&T Fires Back After Law Firm Tries To Block T-Mobile Deal Through Arbitration

    AT&T Fires Back After Law Firm Tries To Block T-Mobile Deal Through Arbitration

    AT&T’s legal team probably didn’t have too restful a weekend. On Friday afternoon, the legal firm accidentally posted a partially redacted letter to the FCC revealing the original cost of its planned LTE build-out at $3.8 billion. That’s quite a difference from the $39 billion it would cost to achieve the same goal through a T-Mo acquisition, and many found the… Read More

  • BlackBerry Bold 9930 Goes Live At Verizon For $249 On-Contract

    BlackBerry Bold 9930 Goes Live At Verizon For $249 On-Contract

    Last week, a leaked Sprint flyer indicated a $249 price-point for the BlackBerry Bold 9930. Though Sprint’s iteration likely won’t land for another week or so (August 21), Verizon is ready to release its BlackBerry Bold flagship to the world, starting today. Just like at Sprint, the handset will cost $249 with a two-year agreement. Read More

  • Nerf’s New Vortex Blasters Shoot Discs! And They’re Awesome!

    Nerf’s New Vortex Blasters Shoot Discs! And They’re Awesome!

    When I was growing up, one of my all-time favorite toys was my Nerf Super Soaker. Every summer, the other neighborhood kids and I would take off on our bikes, Super Soakers strapped to our backs, and have a full-on water war. It’s been a solid decade since I’ve raised my not-so-dangerous weapon, but the other night something magical happened. I got to go to Nerf’s unveiling… Read More

  • Leaked FCC Doc Reveals Details Of AT&T’s Strategy For T-Mobile Deal

    Leaked FCC Doc Reveals Details Of AT&T’s Strategy For T-Mobile Deal

    A partially-redacted letter from AT&T lawyers to FCC officials was accidentally posted on the FCC website today, and it reveals quite a bit about AT&T‘s strategy for its proposed acquisition of T-Mobile. Unfortunately, the filing has come and gone on the website, but the folks over at Wireless Week took down some notes for us. Read More

  • The Battle Continues: Samsung To Appeal Apple’s European Injunction

    The Battle Continues: Samsung To Appeal Apple’s European Injunction

    As expected, Samsung has decided to fight back against Apple’s preliminary injunction to ban sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 across the European Union (excluding the Netherlands). On August 25, the rumble continues, as Samsung will go to court in Dusseldorf, Germany to appeal the court’s decision, reports the Wall Street Journal. Read More

  • Windows Phone VP Debunks Mango’s Sept. 1 Release, We’re Still Not Convinced

    Windows Phone VP Debunks Mango’s Sept. 1 Release, We’re Still Not Convinced

    If you’re keeping up with Windows Phone Mango (which you totally should be because it looks pretty awesome), you’ll remember that we reported on a possible September 1 release for the update. Trusted, yet unnamed, Pocket-Lint sources had confirmed the rumor. Well, here’s the thing. We were totally right. We’re just not sure which part we were right about yet &mdash… Read More
