    Leaked: T-Mobile's release schedule for January and February

    If you’re the type of person that likes to be surprised by mobile handset releases, you might want to look away. Also, you might want to stop reading mobile blogs. Also, you’re weird. One of BG’s super sneaks managed to snap a shot of a blurp at the bottom of one of T-Mobile’s employee-only Daily News pages, detailing the next two months of handset releases. What’s… Read More

  • SlingPlayer Mobile for BlackBerry Beta goes live

    SlingPlayer Mobile for BlackBerry Beta goes live

    As we mentioned a few days ago, the BlackBerry version of Sling Media’s SlingPlayer mobile has entered public beta. If past products are any indication, it’ll go for $30 bucks after a 30-day trial once they’ve worked out all the kinks. In the meantime, however, it’s free – so if you’ve got a Slingbox at home and a BlackBerry in your pocket, go grab it quick. Read More

    Fennec shaping up to be the mobile browser to beat in '09


    We’ve seen Fennec in an early form before, but apparently the new beta alpha is much more featured, and the promises being made for Mozilla’s mobile browser are going to really shake up the scene if they follow through. Read More

    Spy shots: Android on OpenMoko hardware


    I swear to god, if you have a real lens (as I can see in the 2nd pic), use manual focus for things like this. I guess beggars can’t be choosers, since this guy is the only one with pics of Android running on the OpenMoko hardware, but jesus! Click on for the rest of the shots — such as they are. Read More

  • Innov8 with AT&T-friendly innards passes through the FCC

    Innov8 with AT&T-friendly innards passes through the FCC

    Even without any sort of US Carrier availability, the Samsung Innov8 managed to crack at least one of our Top Picks of 2008 lists. As usual, however, the fact that it’s superb doesn’t equate to it being easy to buy. Fortunately, it looks like that might be changing. Amazon just started peddling the International Version this morning, but with an oh-so-hefty $799 price tag. If… Read More

    Rumor: Casio Exilim cameraphone coming to Verizon

    Spyshots of a supposed Verizon-branded Casio Exilim camera-phone have surfaced on a Korean blog.  The images (posted by a random forum member) of this rumored clamshell device reveal that it will include a 5.1mp camera…and not much else. Read More

    Samsung S8300 AMOLED Touchscreen Slider lacks kitchen sink

    While I can’t say I agree with the color scheme (Orange and black? I can’t decide whether it looks like a Halloween toy or a cheap pair of Reeboks), it looks like Samsung has managed one hell of an engineering feat with the just-leaked S8300. According to DailyMobile.se, this thing comes packed tight with a 2.8″ WQVGA AMOLED touchscreen, 8 megapixel camera with autoflash… Read More

  • T-Mobile to gift G1 owners with extended batteries?

    T-Mobile to gift G1 owners with extended batteries?

    This one’s going to be shaky until T-Mobile makes an official statement or the first delivery is made, but it’s a nice enough idea that we figured it was worth a mention. GoogleAndBlog is reporting that T-Mobile is looking to pacify the complaints on the G1′s dismal battery by hooking up customers with a bigger, badder one. Read More

  • iPhone vs. OPhone: the side-by-side comparison

    iPhone vs. OPhone: the side-by-side comparison

    Oh OPhone, you somber siren. You’ve managed to steal the throne from the HTC Touch HD in the realm of phones we want but will probably never get. You’re just as pretty, but with the added bonus of running Android rather than Windows Mobile. Alas, you’re probably never going to find your way out of China. Why must you tease us so, Lenovo? Looking to make our hearts pang a… Read More
