  • 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

    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

    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


    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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"

    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

    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

    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

    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"

    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

  • Samsung Has Super Snappy 32GB Class 10 MicroSD Cards In The Works, 64GB To Follow

    Samsung has taken a page out of the old Kingston playbook, announcing that the Korean-based tech giant has class 10 microSD cards in the works. “The industry demand for high-class-rated memory cards addresses the growing performance push for next generation mobile applications in more advanced smartphones including 4G models,” said Wanhoon Hong, executive VP of memory sales and… Read More

  • Unlocked, SIM-Free Nokia E6 Goes Live On Amazon's Site For $439

    The Nokia E6 saw a $7 price-cut as it became available today on Amazon’s site, listed at $439 instead of its pre-order price of $446. The unlocked, SIM-free phone is available and in-stock, and shipping is free from Amazon. The unbranded Nokia E6 will work with both AT&T and T-Mobile’s networks, and with a pentaband 3G radio on board, the E6 can get 4G support, too. Read More

  • Cisco Brings AppHQ App Storefront To It's 7-Inch Cius Tablet

    A year ago today, we predicted that Cisco’s enterprise-focused 7-inch Cius tablet would never ship. It was a reasonable prediction at the time, but it turns out we were wrong. In fact, the Cisco Cius tablet did ship in late March, barely making its promised release date of “Q1 2011.” Today, Cisco unveiled its latest product for Cius, the AppHQ application storefront, hoping… Read More

  • Sprint's HTC Evo 3D Caught Prepping For T-Mo's 4G Network?

    HTC’s line of Evo phones have long been Sprint exclusives, and are arguably the number three carrier’s shining stars. Interestingly enough, Sprint’s most recent (and also most awesome) phone, the Evo 3D has been spotted passing through the FCC sporting T-Mobile’s AWS bands. A trip to the FCC doesn’t necessarily mean that T-Mobile is for sure, without a doubt… Read More

  • Samsung Files ITC Complaint Against Apple, Tries To Ban Imports Of iStuff

    They’re at it again folks, and it only gets uglier and uglier. Samsung has filed another complaint against Apple, according to the International Trade Commission website, this time to request an import ban against the iPhone, iPad, and iPod.
    Should the ITC choose to investigate the complaint, we won’t get a final decision for at least 16 months. Read More
