  • Toshiba Tablet Gets Formal Introduction, And A Name

    Today the highly anticipated Toshiba Tablet got a formal introduction into the market, and finally, a name: the Thrive. Rather than trying to put out the “thinnest” or “lightest” tablet on the market, Toshiba’s Thrive is all about usability, according to the manufacturer. Sporting a 10.1-inch display, the Thrive will ship with standard Android 3.1 Honeycomb. Read More

  • RIM Deals Out OTA Update For The BlackBerry PlayBook

    So maybe RIM’s initial foray into the tablet arena wasn’t as mind-blowing as the company would’ve liked, but it’s nothing a few updates can’t fix, right? Well, maybe not, but that’ll be up to existing BlackBerry PlayBook owners, who should be seeing the OTA update hit their tablets any minute now. Read More

  • HTC HD7S WP7 Smartphone Now Available At AT&T

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the Windows Phone platform is going to get way more popular after the introduction of Mango. So if you’re one of those people who loves songs until they graduate to mainstream radio, you may want to jump on the freshly released WP7-powered HTC HD7S, before Mango launches all your friends get one, too. AT&T is selling the phone for just under $200 with… Read More

  • Viewsonic Launches ViewBook 730 Android Tablet – Watch Out, Nook Color

    The Nook Color may have met its match, or at least been introduced to its newest competitor, as Viewsonic today introduced the ViewBook 730 Android tablet. Viewsonic has branded this device as a tablet, with a tagline reading “changing the face of tablets.” No telling yet whether that bold promise is one to trust, but it does seem like the ViewBook is better suited for a strong run… Read More

  • Potentially AT&T-Compatible HTC Sensation Spotted In FCC

    An AT&T-compatible version of the HTC Sensation has been spotted on its way through the FCC by a site called Wireless Goodness. Originally, the Sensation launched as the HTC Pyramid overseas, and was rebranded as the HTC Sensation 4G when T-Mobile landed the device earlier this year. An AT&T version would open up the audience for this device quite a bit, but there’s a chance… Read More

  • Verizon Gets Hit With FCC Complaint Over 4G LTE Tethering

    Verizon Wireless got hit with an FCC complaint this morning by an organization called Free Press, over the restrictions placed on Verizon’s 4G LTE smartphones.

  • Samsung Indulge Heads To Cricket For $329.99

If you aren’t a Cricket subscriber, but feel like putting it to the man (AKA Verizon and AT&T), the Samsung Indulge may help with motivation, albeit at slower speeds. Read More

  • Leaked Photos Of Motorola Droid Bionic Suggest Processor, Design Upgrades

    Chances are you may not remember the Motorola Droid Bionic. Why, you ask? Well, it may have something to do with the fact that the Android smartphone was announced five months ago, and has yet to ship. But that may be good news, since current rumors suggest the phone has undergone a little revamp pre-launch. After the release of the buggy Motorola Atrix, it only makes sense that Motorola wants… Read More

  • HTC ChaCha Sees Frequency Boost Pre-Launch

    In February, HTC introduced a rather unique Android handset to the market, called the ChaCha. If the name wasn’t strange enough, it’s also one of very few Android smartphones to sport the “QWERTY monoblock” form factor (aka, BlackBerry form factor). Yet, one feature in particular, allows the HTC ChaCha to stand alone: a dedicated Facebook button. When you press the… Read More

    Turns out the folks over at the iPhone Dev Team didn’t waste any time after Apple released the developer version of iOS 5 yesterday – as you can see, iOS 5 has been jailbroken.
