  • ComScore: Android Keeps Growing, Apple iOS Slides By RIM's BlackBerry OS

    ComScore: Android Keeps Growing, Apple iOS Slides By RIM's BlackBerry OS

    Recent figures from ComScore pretty much reflect what we already know: Google’s Android OS continues to grow, while RIM’s BlackBerry platform has fallen behind Apple’s iOS to the number three spot. Based on just how many Android handsets are currently in the market, it’s no surprise that Android takes the cake for this quarter. Read More

  • To Play Or To Eat? Swedish McDonalds Lets You Do Both

    Thirty or forty years ago, when I had yet to grace a womb, commercials were five minutes long, and went into great detail explaining to us the joys of cigarettes, red meat, and alcohol (or so I’m told). Apparently, people had to get off the couch to change the channel back then, so I’m assuming most of those five-minute commercials were watched all the way through. Things… Read More

  • Motorola Droid 3 Gets Leaked In Tutorial Video

    Rumors of a potential Motorola Droid 3 have been circulating for quite a while now, but after a tutorial video surfaced on YouTube, posted by German site PhonePads.com, it’s pretty safe to say that this beautiful third-gen iteration of the Original Droid will be gracing our pockets sooner rather than later.

    HTC EVO 3D, EVO View 4G Get Price Tags, Hit Sprint Shelves June 24

    Glasses-free 3D on a smartphone is hitting U.S. shelves for the first time ever in the form of the HTC EVO 3D smartphone, so if you’re one of those people who just has to “have it first,” mark June 24 in your calendar. Sprint today announced the release dates for the two newest members of its EVO line of products, the HTC EVO 3D smartphone and HTC EVO View 4G tablet, set to go… Read More

  • HTC Sensation Suffers Through iPhone 4-Esque "Death Grip" Issues

    HTC Sensation Suffers Through iPhone 4-Esque "Death Grip" Issues

    So remember that one time when you had to hold your iPhone 4 just right or else you lost the signal and dropped your call? Apparently a similar problem has befallen the HTC Sensation: if you hold the phone a certain way, aka “death grip,” the phone loses its signal, its Bluetooth connection, and its Wi-Fi connection, all in one foul swoop.

  • Adobe CEO: Android Will Beat iOS On Tablets

    Adobe CEO: Android Will Beat iOS On Tablets

    Adobe’s big man upstairs Shantanu Narayen is betting on Google’s Honeycomb platform rather than Apple’s iOS in the current battle for tablet OS supremacy. Can anyone guess why? If you said “Flash support,” you’re right on the money. Apple CEO Steve Jobs has long been against the use of Flash on iDevices, openly calling the software insecure and crash-inducing. Read More

  • Samsung Galaxy S 4G (Refurb) Hits T-Mo's Prepaid Site With $350 Price Tag

    Samsung Galaxy S 4G (Refurb) Hits T-Mo's Prepaid Site With $350 Price Tag

    On a scale from one to ten, how excited do you think we were to see the Samsung Galaxy S 4G (Refurb) go live on T-Mobile’s prepaid site? If you guessed somewhere around a six or a seven, good job! If you guessed eleven, you don’t quite understand how scales work. Read More

  • Rosetta Stone iPad App Hits App Store

    Rosetta Stone iPad App Hits App Store

    Short version: Rosetta Stone launched its iPad app today, which is basically just a lighter version of its core “course” software. The app itself is nothing extraordinary, but the way it teaches languages is pretty awesome. Foreign language has never been my best subject, but I had a blast playing with this app because it feels way more like a puzzle than a language lesson. The… Read More

  • RIM Launches One-Click-To-Join Mobile Conferencing App

    RIM Launches One-Click-To-Join Mobile Conferencing App

    The majority of BlackBerry owners out there tend to fall on the enterprise side of things, so it only makes sense that RIM would build an app that caters to its suit-wearing, email-checking, conference-calling customer base. The app is called BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing, and it basically streamlines the entire tedious process of dialing in, giving an ID code, etc. North American… Read More

  • HTC Plans To Release Sense UI SDK

    HTC Plans To Release Sense UI SDK

    HTC recently announced plans to release a software development kit for its Sense UI, which just so happens to be downright gorgeous in version 3.0. The SDK will allow developers to integrate their applications more deeply within the Sense software, according to HTC. And for developers who want to build 3D apps, the company also has plans to offer APIs and sample code for Sense handsets with… Read More

  • Girls Just Wanna Have A Pink Nokia N8 Running Symbian

    Looking for a bra made out of genuine, 100 percent smartphone that shoots laser beams from your chest? Or perhaps, you’ve been waiting for that multipurpose phone that moonlights as a back-lit performance stage? Unless you’re a skeezy GaGa-style Barbie, the pink Nokia N8 won’t include those cool features. Sorry. Read More

    Xperia Play, Arc Get Android 2.3.3 Update From Vodafone Including New Facebook UI

    Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play and Arc smartphones will be getting an update this morning to Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread, but only for our cross-the-pond friends on Vodafone’s network. Sorry Verizonites, but I’m sure your Xperia handsets will get bumped up to 2.3.3 soon. In the mean time, Vodafone Play and Arc owners can look forward to a few bug fixes, and Facebook Inside… Read More

  • Sprint-Bound HTC EVO 3D Nabs FCC Approval

    Sprint-Bound HTC EVO 3D Nabs FCC Approval

    The HTC EVO 3D is possibly one of the most anticipated phones of the summer, and both Sprint and HTC have done an excellent job of teasing out its launch date. Thanks to a RadioShack flyer discovered a few days ago, we were pretty certain the 3D-capable smartphone would hit shelves on June 24. Today, however, we’ve been given a little extra confirmation that the smartphone is on its… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Xperia Play To Get 20 New Optimized Titles

    Sony Ericsson Xperia Play To Get 20 New Optimized Titles

    After what felt like decades of waiting for Sony to bust out a PlayStation phone, the Xperia Play landed with mixed reviews. The hardware, especially the D-Pad, and its super intense Facebook integration passed with flying colors, but we were somewhat disappointed to see just 50 Play-optimized PlayStation titles at launch. But just like Sony Ericsson promised, there are 20 new titles coming to… Read More

  • Facebook Video Scam Infects Mac And Windows

    Facebook Video Scam Infects Mac And Windows

    In the tech world, the phrase “gets better with time” is rarely, if ever, used. Hackers may be the only exception to that rule, and they seem to be on a faster learning curve than Facebook. A video scam has been circulating on Facebook since Tuesday, tricking users into downloading and installing software by offering up a video of Dominique Strauss-Kahn. On Wednesday, hackers… Read More

  • Huawei Planning Android Smartphone Launch Later This Year

    Huawei Planning Android Smartphone Launch Later This Year

    The rumor mill’s churning away today, spreading word of a possible “high-end” Android smartphone from Chinese manufacturer Huawei. According to V3, Huawei’s smartphone (which, sadly, hasn’t been caught on camera just yet) will run Android 2.3 with a “custom 3D interface” on top. V3 also claims that the smartphone will look a bit like the HTC Desire S… Read More

    Apple Wants To Be It's Own Carrier; MVNO Patent Application Extended

    One of the greatest struggles I’ve had to face with my iPhone is the fact that I have two different companies to deal with. When I have a hardware issue, I’m Apple Store-bound. If I have a service issue, I’m headed to the nearest AT&T location. But wouldn’t it be nice if Apple just had its own network? It would be really nice, and it just may happen, according to… Read More

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Hits NYC June 8, Everywhere Else June 17

    Even though we have to deal with 100-degree summers and 15-degree winters, hobos on the subway, and slow-walking tourists, sometimes it really pays off to be a New Yorker. Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy Tab 10.1 won’t hit stores nationally until June 17, but a few lucky New Yorkers, and possibly some smart-shopping tourists, will be able to pick up a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1… Read More

    I Spy With My Little Eye: HDMI On The Xperia Play?

    A mystery has surfaced with regards to the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play smartphone, in that one black-sheep unit apparently has support for HDMI out. Since its release, gamers have grumbled over the fact that the handheld multi-purpose gaming device can’t play games over HDMI, in cases when the Play’s rather small screen just won’t cut it.
