    Well it would seem that NTT DoCoMo, one of the largest wireless carriers in Japan, has let slip the Samsung Galaxy Nexus announcement just a couple hours early. According to a tweet, “the latest Android OS smartphone with Google and Samsung Electronics [will be] announced on October 19 in Hong Kong tomorrow.

    T-Mobile Announces The Dual-Screen LG DoublePlay, Launching November 2nd?

    While the dual-screen Kyocera Echo didn’t do much to tickle my fancy, a couple dual-screen devices on their way to market, including the Sony S2 tablet, show much more promise. As far as handsets go, T-Mobile just announced the Android-powered LG DoublePlay (codenamed Flip II) smartphone — a split-keybord QWERTY slider with not one, but two, capacitive touch screens.

  • Some Retailers Say iPhone 4 Cases Will Fit The 4S, Others Don’t

    Some Retailers Say iPhone 4 Cases Will Fit The 4S, Others Don’t

    Well, this is a bit curious. We’re all well aware that a phone such as the iPhone 4S requires a case. It’s just too damn precious and costs way too much to go unprotected, but the best cases are often expensive. That said, I’m sure many iPhone 4 owners were hoping to keep their old case when upgrading to the iPhone 4S, but if OtterBox is your go-to case brand, think again. Read More

    Amazon Lists All Its Verizon Phones For One Penny With A New Contract

    Will The AT&T/T-Mobile Merger Create Jobs? (Update)

    There have been plenty of questions over whether or not the proposed $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile by AT&T is in the public interest. We’ve heard from competitors, senators, attorneys generals, and even the DOJ, who formally filed a complaint in federal court saying that “AT&T’s elimination of T-Mobile as an independent, low-priced rival would remove a… Read More

    iPhone 4S Pre-Orders Sold Out At Sprint, Verizon, And AT&T

    Heart set on that brand spankin’ new iPhone 4S? Sorry, but I come bearing bad news. Your window for placing a hassle-free pre-order may have just closed, hard. AT&T has extended its shipping time to 3-4 weeks, while Sprint and Verizon are fresh out of the 16GB model. In other words, it looks like you may be bundling up for a wait in line. Read More

    HP Turns To Bing For New webOS Maps App On Smartphones

    Though webOS has been somewhat shelved going forward, there are still plenty of people out there using HP and Palm phones running the OS. For them, getting map information and directions has been quite the task with the webOS Google Maps-powered app. But today that should change, as the company has opted for a Bing Maps-powered mapping application for the OS.

    New Beats By Dre Monster Headphones Are Wireless, Colorful: We Go Ears-On

    I was lucky enough to get a look at Monster’s new Beats by Dre headphones at their Holiday Launch party recently, and it’s safe to say they’re pretty sweet cans. The company has developed two new sets of headphones: the Beats Wireless on-ear Headphones and the Beats Studio HD Powered Isolation Headphones, which come in a number of color flavors.

  • The Wopad V7+ Tablet Is All About Angry Birds

    The Wopad V7+ Tablet Is All About Angry Birds

    If you at all thought that the Angry Birds phenomenon was fizzling out… well, you were wrong. Rovio itself is doing plenty to make the brand “as iconic as Nintendo’s Mario or Mickey Mouse,” with cookbooks and new games and plush toys galore. But even outside of the company, Angry Birds is still a hit. Over in China, the Shenzhen Technology Co. built a tablet… Read More

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Gets Listed For Pre-Order

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Gets Listed For Pre-Order

    When Samsung first announced the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus WiFi-only tablet, they failed to mention anything about pricing or availability. We assumed that meant that there would be a bit of a wait before we got the chance to get up close and personal with the slate, but maybe we were wrong. J&R electronics retailer has listed the device for pre-order in both the 32GB and 16GB flavors. Read More

  • Lenovo And YouTube Announce Space Lab: The Ultimate Science Fair

    Lenovo And YouTube Announce Space Lab: The Ultimate Science Fair

    When I was just a wee pupil, an excellent science fair project didn’t get you much. At best, you walked away with a blue ribbon and the satisfaction of knowing your paper mache volcano was better than your friends’. These days, a great science project can win you much more, like the opportunity to attend a rocket launch in Japan. Way cooler, yes? Thanks to a partnership between… Read More

    Verizon Officially Announces The Samsung Stratosphere

    RIM Introduces NFC-Powered BlackBerry Tag

    It was all the way back in February when RIM first promised that “many, if not most” BlackBerry handsets in 2011 will feature NFC technology. It proved true with both the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930, along with the BlackBerry Curve 9350/9360/9370, and we should see plenty more where that came from. That said, RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie had one more trick up his sleeve at this… Read More
