  • Analyst Predicts Higher-Res "iPad 2 Plus" Will Launch In Late 2011

    Analyst Predicts Higher-Res "iPad 2 Plus" Will Launch In Late 2011

    Word on the street, specifically Wall St., is that Apple has an “iPad 2 Plus” in the works, with plans to ship in late 2011. Go ahead and grab a salt-shaker now, because despite the truckload of congruent predictions, I still don’t quite buy it. FBR Capital Markets’ Craig Berger claimed earlier today that Apple has asked for component suppliers’ quotes to build… Read More

  • Sony's S1 And S2 Tablets Caught Posing For Glamour Shots

    Sony's S1 And S2 Tablets Caught Posing For Glamour Shots

    Since their announcement, we’ve been keeping a hawk eye on the S1 and S2 tablets from Sony. Both running Android (3.1 Gingerbread most likely), the S1 is a 9.4-inch wedge-style tablet while the other takes a page out of the Kyocera playbook with dual 5.5-inch fold-out screens. Sony really deserves a round of applause for these two uniquely built slates. Just a glance at any of these… Read More

  • comScore: Android Still Leads The Pack While RIM Continues To Slide

    comScore: Android Still Leads The Pack While RIM Continues To Slide

    Well, what do you know? Android is still on top, with a 38 percent U.S. market share in May, according to comScore’s latest numbers. This should come as no surprise, as we’ve been hearing the same story for the past few months. Android leads the pack, with Apple’s iOS holding strong in its second place position, while the rest fade into the background. Read More

  • Microsoft Aims At Samsung To Continue Milking Android Cash Cow

    Microsoft Aims At Samsung To Continue Milking Android Cash Cow

    Remember that somewhat confusing equation that left Microsoft with 5x more Android dough than Windows Phone profits? We already detailed the situation, but for those of you who missed it, Microsoft holds patents on certain facets of Android technology. Because of that, every Android-based smartphone sold by HTC rakes in a $5 licensing fee for Microsoft, an agreement the companies reached out… Read More

  • Rumor: T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide To Hit Shelves July 27?

    Rumor: T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide To Hit Shelves July 27?

    Even though someone in T-Mobile‘s media relations department is banging their head against a desk, we’re really glad to see all the leak love this morning. First, we got a sneak peek at some internal documents promising a July launch for both the LG Thrill 4G and the HTC Status on AT&T. Now we’re learning that the myTouch 4G Slide should hit shelves July 27, creating a… Read More

  • Best Buy Whips Out Toshiba Thrive Inventory Ahead Of Schedule

    Best Buy Whips Out Toshiba Thrive Inventory Ahead Of Schedule

    When I sat down with Toshiba executives about a month ago, they promised that the Toshiba Thrive (once known as the Toshiba Tablet) would hit shelves in mid-July. So imagine my surprise when I found that the Thrive was already for sale at a Best Buy in Austin, TX. We’re not exactly sure why Best Buy gets a head start with the Thrive, but in any case, we’re glad to see… Read More

  • HTC Marvel Spotted Passing Through FCC With Support For T-Mobile's HSPA+ Network

    HTC Marvel Spotted Passing Through FCC With Support For T-Mobile's HSPA+ Network

    If you’re a big fan of the HTC Wildfire S, you’ll be happy to know that its T-Mo-friendly counterpart is making its way through the FCC as we speak. Dubbed the HTC Marvel, speculation suggests that the phone will sport a 3.2-inch screen and an 800MHz processor, but the FCC wasn’t so generous with official specs. Read More

  • Apple Tries To Get Rid Of Samsung Copycats Once And For All

    Apple Tries To Get Rid Of Samsung Copycats Once And For All

    Rather than tap dance around the problem any longer, Apple is trying for a slam-dunk style win against Samsung in their never-ending patent war. In other words, Apple has filed for a preliminary injunction against four of Samsung’s hottest new products, the Infuse 4G, Galaxy S 4G, Droid Charge, and the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Read More

  • Motorola Droid 3 Gets Leaked From 360 Angles

    Motorola Droid 3 Gets Leaked From 360 Angles


    Verizon has yet to officially announce Motorola’s Droid 3, but we expect to see that announcement cross the wires in a matter of hours. In fact, we reported along with other sites that the phone should hit shelves on July 14, with pre-order starting July 7. In other words, an official Droid 3 page posting should go down right about now. When big red finally does get around to posting… Read More

  • Rumor: 15 Million Apple iPhone 5s Set To Ship In September

    Rumor: 15 Million Apple iPhone 5s Set To Ship In September

    While rumors surfaced a couple weeks back suggesting that Apple had TWO new iPhone models in the works, at least one thing is for sure: Pegatron Technology, a notebook maker in line to supply parts for the upcoming iPhone, has been given a 15 million-unit order for the iPhone 5, with shipping to start in September 2011.

  • HP's webOS Boss Encourages Team Through Early Reviews

    HP's webOS Boss Encourages Team Through Early Reviews

    We didn’t exactly heart the TouchPad. We didn’t hate it, either. We even said that “WebOS and the Palm TouchPad are nearly perfect, an excellent amalgamation of everything that was ever right about Palm.” Granted, perfection in this industry lasts about as long as a battery cycle, and we had plenty to gripe about, but as far as the TouchPad goes, we have hope. But… Read More

  • South Korea Promises Paperless Schools By 2015

    South Korea Promises Paperless Schools By 2015

    The death of print has long been on the minds of journalists, writers, bloggers, etc. For those of us who grew up reading our books on paper, asking for magazine subscriptions, and watching our dads read the paper (on paper) at the breakfast table, it’s hard to imagine a world without a book case, and the handful of novels we never got around to picking up yet. In South Korea, there seems… Read More

  • Livescribe Shuts Down App Developer Program

    Livescribe Shuts Down App Developer Program

    We were excited back in 2009 to hear that Livescribe was launching an app store. I remember, we were particularly impressed with the fact that a device so small, like the Pulse smartpen, could ignite such a thriving developer community. Unfortunately, Livescribe has chosen a new path, shutting down its developer program to focus on “cloud access, storage and services.” While this… Read More

  • Samsung Drops One Of Its Many Law Suits Against Apple

    Samsung Drops One Of Its Many Law Suits Against Apple

    It’s looking like Samsung and Apple got a bit carried away there for a while. Apparently the web of litigation surrounding the mobile giants has become too complicated for Samsung, who has chosen to drop one of its counter-suits against Apple. Specifically, the South Korea-based company will dismiss its counter-suit against Apple’s original April filing alleging that the Galaxy line… Read More

  • Review: HP ProBook 5330m

    Review: HP ProBook 5330m

    Does this thing look familiar to you? Granted, there are plenty of little differences, but at a first glance, what does this remind you of? If you said MacBook Pro, congratulations, we’re on the same wave length. The brushed metal finish, the keyboard, the black bezel around the screen… it all screams Apple. That’s all I’ll say on the matter, but I maintain that it had… Read More

  • Samsung To Apple: You Say "Copyist," We Say "Competition"

    Samsung To Apple: You Say "Copyist," We Say "Competition"

    The saga continues, but at least this time we get to giggle at the tech giants’ use of sarcasm. Entangled in a patent battle with Apple, Samsung has switched up its approach to the copycat case, dropping two patents and adding another four. The South Korea-based company is also snarkily redefining the meaning of the word “copying,” opting for the less leechy term… Read More

  • Windows Phone Marketplace Reaches 25K Apps

    Windows Phone Marketplace Reaches 25K Apps

    Clearly the Android Market is growing rapidly, and there’s no reason to even mention the Apple App Store, which just breezed by the 100,000 iPad app marker. But we can’t leave the little guys out, especially when their growth is also relatively impressive. Specifically, Microsoft’s Windows Phone Marketplace is reported to have passed 25,000 applications by a site that tracks… Read More

  • Homeless Man Arrested For Using Private Outlet To Charge Phone

    Homeless Man Arrested For Using Private Outlet To Charge Phone

    Clearly, theft is wrong. But what about that ethical grey area? You’ve heard the example before: the man with no job steals bread for his family to survive. Wrong or right? I’d have to lean toward the “right” side, although that doesn’t make the situation fair for the baker, who just lost a loaf of bread. So what would you say if the father was a 23-year-old… Read More

  • U.S. And U.K. Latest Victims Of Nokia's Online Store Shutdowns

    U.S. And U.K. Latest Victims Of Nokia's Online Store Shutdowns

    We already know that Nokia has started shutting down some of its online stores, such as those in Spain, France, and Finland, but we didn’t expect to see the U.S. and U.K. web outlets close so soon after. That’s right folks, Nokia online is gone. Forever. In fact, the only online stores Nokia has left are in China, Portugal and a few South American countries. Luckily for the end… Read More

  • RIM Employee To CEOs: "I Have Lost Confidence"

    RIM Employee To CEOs: "I Have Lost Confidence"

    Today a letter slipped out addressed to RIM’s co-CEOs Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis. It was written by a “high-level” employee, who BGR claims to have identified and confirmed as the author. The letter is not angry, disgruntled, nor does it cross the line. It is a simple, heartfelt plea to get RIM back in the game. Read More
