  • 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.

  • 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

  • Nokia 700 Zeta Gets Caught On Camera

    Yesterday we reported that Nokia has a few girly-named phones in the works, one of which being the Nokia 700 Zeta. Unfortunately, all we had to lead us down the road to spec discovery was a vague and sparsely detailed spec sheet. Today however, a couple snap shots have been leaked of the Zeta, and we wanted to make sure to give you a more informative introduction to this C6-01 successor. Read More

  • LeapFrog Unveils Kid-Friendly LeapPad Tablet Priced At $100

    If you have a kid, LeapFrog requires no introduction, but since lots of us haven’t spawned quite yet, I’ll go ahead and say that LeapFrog makes educational toys, books, and games for children. And now with the announcement of its LeapPad tablet, the company has entered itself into the tablet arena, albeit with a kid-friendly spin. That’s right, all of you tablet-owning… Read More

  • Microsoft Adds Custom Ring Tones To Windows Phone 7 Mango

    Along with the 500 features originally announced for Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Mango OS, Microsoft today announced the ability to create custom ring tones. Obviously, pre-loaded ring tones will still be available for those of us who enjoy a more classic ringer… but if you want Fergie to assure you that tonight’s going to be a good night every time your special lady… Read More

  • Leaked Nokia Roadmap Promises Four New Symbian Handsets In Q3

    Nokia is all about the ladies. With Symbian, we have Anna and Belle iterations, with more girly names to follow in alphabetical order. And of course, who could forget that absolutely ridiculous female-targeted N8 commercial? It’s certainly burned into the corners of my memory, unfortunately. Today we came across a leaked roadmap for upcoming Symbian handsets, and we were surprised to… Read More

  • Andy Rubin: Daily Android Activations Reach 500,000

    Right around the beginning of May at the I/O event, Google revealed its daily Android activation data, which turned out to be 400,000 Android activations daily. It’s been two months, and now Google’s Android boss Andy Rubin has an adjustment he’d like to make to the numbers. “There are now 500,000 Android devices activated every day, and it’s growing at 4.4%… Read More

  • HTC Plans Full-Scale Attack On Mainland China, Looks To Triple Its Retail Presence

    Ambitious goals are nothing new to HTC. As last year came to a close, the Taiwan-based phone maker promised to sell 60 million handsets in 2011, three times what it sold in 2010. With a good six months left before we see if that last goal will be met, HTC has vowed to add another 1,370 retail stores in mainland China, bringing its total to 2,000. Read More

  • Apple To Samsung: If You Copy Us, We Won't Let You Build Our Chips (So There!)

    Just a couple months ago, Apple and Samsung were basically BFFs. Of course, they were still competitors, but their relationship was symbiotic. Samsung produced the A4 chips that run Apple’s iPhone 4 and the A5 chips found in the iPad 2, and in return, Apple became Samsung’s largest customer, providing the South Korea-based company with millions of dollars in revenue. However… Read More

  • Meet The Sexiest Mobile Drive I've Ever Seen: Lacie's Porsche Design P'9220

    I got a chance to play around with Lacie’s newly announced Porsche Design P’9220 mobile hard drive and one thing is certain: this little 5-inch hard drive is one sexy beast. If we’re judging this book by it’s cover, I’d give the Porsche P’9220 a ten, hands-down. It has this nice brushed metal aluminum finish, sharp lines, and even sharper corners (seriously… Read More

  • New Details On Google's Next Nexus: Now Known As Nexus "Prime," Built By Samsung

    When we reported on the Nexus 4G, Google’s first Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone, we weren’t sure whether or not it would be a “pure Google” device or a handset made by one of the tech giant’s manufacturing partners. The inside source promised a “monster-sized” 720p display, a 4G radio of some kind, an an OMAP440 processor, but none of the leaked… Read More

  • SearchBBM Helps You Find Long-Lost BBM-Using Friends

    A new start-up has popped up out of Tel Aviv called SearchBBM, and it could save BlackBerry users a few bucks on their SMS bill each month. Basically, SearchBBM lets you find other BBM users through Facebook, Twitter, or through their username. Read More

  • HTC To Unleash The Evo 3D On Europe In July

    Glasses-free 3D should be like water, or air: everyone should have access to it. For a couple days, we in the U.S. have been exclusively lucky in that one of the best (if not the best) Android phones of this year launched with us first. If you haven’t guessed yet, I’m talking about the HTC Evo 3D. Fortunately for those in Europe who have suddenly turned green with envy, the wait… Read More
