  • Samsung Fascinate Buglist Leaks

    Well, Verizon and Samsung aren’t going to be too happy about this. A little birdie told Boy Genius about a super double secret document that showed all the known bugs and flaws with the Samsung Fascinate. Now to be fair, every carrier and every phone has one of these lists. Just maybe not one that’s quite so.. well endowed. Read More

  • Galaxy Tab To Be Announced September 16th For AT&T, Verizon, Sprint?

    The latest news regarding Samsung’s Galaxy Tab is no more solid than the price (which has, in another’s words, been pinpointed to somewhere between $200 and $1200), but if these “people familiar with the matter” are to be believed, we’ll see a multi-carrier rollout on September 16th. Samsung is said to have made deals with AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint &mdash… Read More

  • Apple Says iPhone 4 Antenna Issue “Even Smaller Than We Originally Thought”

    Remember Antennagate? You probably do, but no one seems to talk about it anymore. Since Apple held a press conference to address the iPhone 4′s attenuation issues in July, undoubtedly millions more units have been sold. More units, more problems, right? Maybe not. Read More

    If you know anyone who makes a habit out of texting while driving in Cincinnati, Ohio you might want to give them a heads up: it’s illegal now.

  • Adobe Celebrates As Flash-Developed Apps Are Apple-Kosher Once More

    Today’s announcement from Apple seems like good news across the board; while the abstract restrictions on apps (like replicating functionality) have been tightened up a bit, the origin of the app is no longer inspected and, as Adobe points out gleefully, this means that apps developed in Flash are now A-OK. Adobe also notes that they will be continuing development of the Flash… Read More

  • Video: ASUS Windows Phone 7 device

    By now you’ve probably already seen the WinPho7 features that are shown off on this video, but what you probably haven’t seen is the hardware. This appears to be the first (non-Garmin) ASUS phone we’ve seen since those two got together and did the dance, but that’s all we can really tell from the video… and we can’t even really tell that There is no name… Read More

  • Verizon Samsung Fascinate rooted already

    While it’s not surprising, it’s still good to know that the new Verizon Samsung Fascinate has been taken into the gentle hands of the modding community and given its root rights returned, a mere day after release. An important moment in the life of any Android phone, but especially so for the Fascinate, as it means you’ll soon be able to get rid of the bloatware and Bing… Read More

  • Ready for your regular dose of Windows Phone 7 leakage? Meet the Samsung GT-i8700.

    I know, I know — it was just starting to seem like we might go a full week without another Windows Phone 7 handset leaking out, right? Not gonna happen. Really, these things leak at such a constant rate that we’re starting to wonder if it’s not someone at Microsoft’s way of keeping WinPho7 on the radar. Either way: look, new phone! Read More

  • Smartphones Bah! The John's Phone Is One Step Away From Two Cans On A String

    For almost every product, there is a polar opposite. I think it’s safe to say that the John’s Phone is the exact opposite of the iPhone/Blackberry Twitter-booking web browsing contraptions that the kids are using these days. The John’s phone is simple to the point of minimalism, with no LCD display, just numbers and a send and an end button. The John’s Phone is available… Read More

  • I Am T-Pain for iPhone now delivering Auto-Tuned tracks straight to your shawtaaay's voicemail

    As a wise man once said: pimpin’ aint easy. Then cell phones came along, and made things even harder. You know how hard it is to keep your pimpin’ voice strong when it’s being compressed down to pretty much nothing and sent through a few dozen cell towers? In the age of GSM, no one gets to sound like a stunnah on the phone. No one*. Smule, the masterminds behind the… Read More

  • The New App Store Guidelines: What You Need To Know

    For the first time ever, after 250,000 apps have been developed, Apple finally decided to release some guidelines for developers to help them understand the app review process. The document is not only informative, but also entertaining to read. In general, for an app to make it through the somewhat opaque-until-now App approval process it needs to be a serious app (“We don’t need… Read More
