The apps, platforms and businesses redefining how we use computers

  • Hands-on with the HTC Desire (with video)

    Considering just how similar the new HTC Desire is to the not-quite-as-new Google Nexus One (read: very, very similar), I wasn’t expecting to walk away from my hands on session with my mind too blown. I mean, it’s essentially just a Nexus One with HTC’s Sense UI and an optical trackpad, right? Right – and that’s exactly why it’s amazing. Read More

  • RIM shows off the new WebKit-powered BlackBerry browser

    BlackBerry users have long suffered with horrible mobile Internet browsers. But help is on the way in the form of a WebKit browser. The company showed off the new goods at its MWC press event. No word on the expected release date, but seeing as BlackBerry users have dealt with it this long, they can probably hold out a little longer. That is if they don’t get baited by the new… Read More

  • I Am Legend: How the HTC Legend stacks up to a Hero

    The HTC Hero, available in the US from Sprint, is less than a year old but that doesn’t mean HTC can’t up the ante. The Legend, a 3G GSM phone not currently available, has a slightly faster processor and a few interesting – and telling – details that are worth a second look. First, the processor has jumped from 528 MHz to 600, a bump that puts it on par with the Palm Pre… Read More

  • Hands-on with the HTC Legend (with video)

    When the HTC Hero was announced in June of last year, I would have made a valiant effort to eat my own head if it meant I got to own one. It was just so damned pretty. I just got the opportunity to play with its brand-new successor, the HTC Legend – and, well.. to put it gently, it makes the HTC Hero look like an antique. I only got to spend a few minutes with it, but I walked away… Read More

  • Sagem officially announces the PUMA PHONE

    We knew it was coming and caught a glimpse of its posterior last week, but Sagem’s solar-powered Puma (as in the clothing brand) Phone is now one hundred percent official. Read More

  • Video: HTC Legend, Desire, and HD mini promo spots (Update: More videos!)

    We’re not sure when HTC plans to make these videos available through their own channels, but we just got a trio of videos showing off the three handsets they just announced at Mobile World Congress: the HTC Desire, HD mini, and Legend. Check out all three after the jump. Read More

  • HTC announces the Nexus One's slightly cooler twin, the Desire

    What’s in a name? Would a Nexus One by any other name still be as sweet? Yep. In fact, it might just be a bit sweeter. Though it lacks almost any indication as such, Google’s Nexus One is actually made by HTC. HTC reserved the rights to the hardware design, and today they’re making good use of that decision with the announcement of the HTC Desire. It’s essentially the… Read More

  • HTC makes the HD mini official

    Only when you’re talking about a phone designed in the same vein as the massive (though drop-dead gorgeous) HTC HD2 with its 4.3 inch display would you ever call a phone with a 3.2″ display “mini” . That’s exactly what HTC’s doing this morning in Barcelona, with the announcement of the Windows Mobile 6.5.3-powered HD mini. Read More

  • There's a new Hero in town: HTC announces the Legend

    As we expected after the leaks last night, HTC has just dropped the good word on three brand new handsets at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The first up is the Android 2.1-powered HTC Legend, which is essentially a spiritual successor to the much-loved HTC Hero. Read More
