  • Apple Releases iTunes Festival App For iPad And iPhone

    Since 2007, Apple has hosted the iTunes Festival in London. And why wouldn’t it? For most, iTunes is the go-to one-stop shop for all the music we could ever want, so an annual music festival in its honor is only fitting. If you’re interested in checking out the show, or simply just want to keep up with the festival, Apple has just released its iTunes Festival app for free on the… Read More

  • Samsung's LCD Fridge With Apps Is A Fridge That Has An LCD And Apps

    Food aside, what’s missing from your fridge? As long as it keeps food cold, and hooks you up with some cold water or crushed ice from time to time, there’s really nothing more we can ask from our fridges. At least, that’s how I felt before I went to Samsung’s appliance line unveiling and met my new favorite home appliance: the app fridge. The app fridge comes in two… Read More

  • AT&T's New $50 Unlimited Talk, Text, And Web Prepaid Plan Starts June 26

    AT&T is obviously a top-dog in the wireless industry, and stands to take the number one spot once its T-Mobile buyout comes to a close. But in a small pond, AT&T isn’t the big fish you’d expect it to be. The big blue carrier still faces strong competition in the prepaid sector from smaller carriers like Boost Mobile and MetroPCS, which is probably why AT&T came up with… Read More

  • Leaked Ad Points To TiVo Apps For iPhone and Android Devices

    I heart TV and, in turn, I heart TiVo. Why wouldn’t I? It’s basically a little treasure box of my favorite episodes saved for me to watch at any time I’d like. The ONLY problem I have, and I really mean only, is that whenever I discover a new show, which is usually by way of conversations with friends, I’m not at home and can’t schedule it on my TiVo. Luckily… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Promises Xperia X10 Gingerbread Update In August

    After more than a month-long delay, Android 2.3 Gingerbread is finally headed to the Xperia X10, according to a blog post from Sony Ericsson. Originally, SE had scheduled the update to roll out towards the end of the second quarter, or early in the third quarter, but obviously things didn’t go as planned. Today, however, Sony Ericsson’s blog said that “development and testing… Read More

  • RIM Pressures Carriers To Approve BlackBerry Phones "No Matter What, With Bugs And Problems"

    We all know that RIM isn’t having the best year, but there’s still one little ray of gleaming hope left for the company: forthcoming BlackBerry smartphones.

Until then, its upcoming smartphones have to sell well to keep the… Read More

  • Apple-Samsung Patent War Begins To Bore Judge, Execs To Settle Out Of Court?

    Apple and Samsung may finally be able to play nice after all, as an Apple lawyer revealed on Friday that ultra high-level executives from both companies have been in talks over the patent dispute. The disclosure relieved no one more than U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh, who has been asking the two tech giants to figure it out already. Read More

  • Social Addicts Rejoice! HTC ChaCha Facebook Phone Headed For AT&T

    Have you ever excused yourself from a real-life interpersonal conversation to play Farmville? Do you update “what’s on your mind” more often than you eat?

Luckily… Read More

  • Motorola Xoom LTE, Droid 3 Spotted On Verizon MAP System

    When we happen to catch products on their way through Verizon’s Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) system, it usually means we’ll see those goodies on the shelf faster than you can say “Minimum Advertised Price system.” Today, that same treasure MAP turned out to be a gold mine, as Droid-Life spotted both a 4G-capable Motorola Xoom and that Motorola Droid 3 we’ve… Read More

  • PlayStation Boss: No PS4 Anytime Soon, We're Advanced Enough

    With Nintendo’s announcement of the Wii U at E3, and rumors of a potential Microsoft machine headed our way in 2013, you’d think that the folks over at Sony would be working long hours to make the next-gen PlayStation top-dog amongst competitors. Unfortunately, that’s not the case, according to comments made by PlayStation US boss Jack Tretton in a Forbes interview. Read More

  • Apple Extends List Of Copycat Devices In Samsung Patent Battle

    Here’s something that totally baffles: In what way does Samsung’s Sidekick 4G violate Apple design patents? Have you ever seen anything close to a Sidekick get that half-eaten Apple branding? In any case, the plot has thickened between these two phone makers, with Apple now claiming that 12 different Samsung devices infringe upon Apple’s design and trade dress, including… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Xperia Duo Surfaces, Possibly SE's First Dual-Core Phone

    The predecessor to the thin-as-ever Xperia Arc and Sony Ericsson’s first dual-core smartphone has taken its first few glamour shots, which appeared today on Chinese Forums. It’s being called the Sony Ericsson Xperia Duo. We don’t have a lot of details to work with, although from the picture we can see that the Duo will have the same triple-button hardware on the front that… Read More

  • RIM Ex-Employee: Prideful Leadership Killed Us, But There's Still A "Real Shot"

    Without a shadow of a doubt, RIM is struggling. It feels like every day we see something new pop up on the reader about how RIM forecasts were cut, and then nearly missed, or how Mike Lazaridis straight up freaked out during a BBC interview, or how one of the COOs needs to take medical leave, (pause to take a breath…) or how the company lost its sixth-largest investor, or how PlayBook… Read More

  • Motorola Droid 3 Launches In China, Possibly Hitting U.S. Shelves July 7

    The Motorola Droid 3, or XT883, or Milestone, or whatever else you’d like to call it, has finally been launched in China, which means its only a matter of time before this third-gen Droid hits U.S. shelves. For right now, we’re guesstimating a July 7 release from Verizon based on claims from Droid-Life sources, but we can’t say for sure until we get official word. Read More

  • LG Sends Out Reminder For Delayed Optimus 3D, Sans New Launch Date

    So remember the Optimus 3D smartphone from LG? It was the first smartphone announced to boast a glasses-free 3D display, and we were all really excited when LG said this bad boy would launch worldwide in June. Unfortunately, the phone has seen a couple delays, most recently the shift from a June 20 UK release to July 11. In spite of the delays, LG wants to keep us excited about the Optimus 3D… Read More

    Listen up Nokia loyalists, this one’s for you. Amazon has just put the Nokia E6 business-class smartphone up for pre-order on its web site, which is pretty good news considering the fact that US carriers haven’t exactly been chomping at the bit to sell Nokia handsets. Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Preps NFC For Android Phones

    Talk of NFC has been around longer than I can remember, but when are we actually going to get to wave our phones around and magically pay for soda, or a movie, or whatever else our little hearts desire? Read More
