  • Review: T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide


    Short Version: A long, long time ago, I can still remember, how the MyTouch 3G’s touchscreen used to make me cry. And I knew that if they had their chance, that T-Mobile could add a keyboard, and maybe we’d be happy for a while. And how May/June made me shiver because T-Mobile has delivered – a MyTouch with a keyboard as useful as a Sidekick’s. Read More

  • iPhone 4's screen may be tough, but don't think that it's shatter proof

    I’m sure we all know at least 2 or 3 people that have accidentally dropped their iPhone and watched in horror as the screen shattered into so many tiny pieces. It may have even happened to you. So, I’m sure you were pleased when Apple showed off how tough the new screen on the upcoming iPhone 4 was. I mean, they bent it like 30 degrees, fer cryin’ out loud! That’s like… Read More

  • Sprint "inadvertently overstated" launch day sales of the HTC EVO 4G

    Remember when Sprint said the total number of HTC EVO 4G devices sold on its launch day was three times the number of Samsung Instinct and Palm Pre devices sold over their first three days on the market combined, last Monday? Yeah, that didn’t really happen. The company now admits it had “inadvertently overstated” the launch day sales of the HTC phone, and that in reality it… Read More

  • LinkPush: Chrome-to-Phone for the rest of us (those not on Android 2.2)

    One of the neat-o features introduced in Android 2.2 (or Froyo) is “Chrome-to-Phone”, which gives the ability to take what you’re viewing in the Google Chrome browser (on your PC/Mac [edit: or Linux box!]), and push it straight to your Froyo phone. I’ve not yet seen this in person, though, because I’m stuck on a pre-Froyo build of Android. Which sucks. But today… Read More

  • Leaked shot shows blurry Droid 2?


    I’m not sure, in this day and age, how anyone is able to take such incredibly blurry spy shots. I mean, noisy sure, a little blur here and there, sure. But so much so that it looks like vaseline on the lens? How?! Regardless of the answer to that little mystery, this incomparably blurry shot put up over at Droid-Life seems to show a new Motorola model, A955, which designation was spotted… Read More

  • Sprint EVO 4G sells out online, nation wide

    Selling out of a new device in one or two real stores is one thing — they generally only have 20 or 30 handsets to begin with. But running out of stock for your online storefront? That’s an impressive feat. With that said: If you were planning on running home from work today and ordering yourself an EVO, you might want to take a deep breath before clicking through the jump.

  • Are you eligible for an iPhone 4 upgrade? Here's how to check

    Love it or hate it, the new iPhone is coming on June 24th. For a lot of people, that means it’s time to shell out a fat wad of cash to get their latest gadget fix. Just how fat said wad of cash is, however, depends on various factors, including (but not limited to): your monthly bill total, when you bought your device, the weather, your birth stone, and whether or not you can wink your… Read More
