The apps, platforms and businesses redefining how we use computers

  • $199, March 24th release for HD2 on T-Mo confirmed

    We knew about the pricing, but until today, we weren’t sure exactly which day the HD2 was going to hit T-Mobile. So long, ignorance! March 24th it is! There’s more stuff going down at an HD2 event as I write this, if I’m not mistaken, and we’ll have the whole business for you shortly. There’s a lot of white space here, so I’m going to editorialize. I know… Read More

  • No copy-paste for Windows Phone 7 Series

    Le sigh. We actually already knew there was no copy/paste functionality in WP7S devices, but the announcement we were hoping for at MIX wasn’t “no copy/paste for real” but rather “here’s how we’ve obsoleted copy/paste.” Maybe they’ll add it later, but… really, now. Nothing at all? You guys are killing the dream. Read More

  • BlueAnt to launch a text-message-to-speech Android App next week

    Bluetooth headsets are great for keeping your eyes on the road while you’re driving — until you get a text message. “I wonder who that’s from? I’ll just take a peek!” you think, reaching for your phone… and BAM! Your car’s front end is now playing twister with another car’s rear end. Bluetooth headset manufacturer BlueAnt is looking to cut… Read More

  • 40% of BlackBerry users: "Yeah, I'd trade in for an iPhone"

    Can you blame ’em? If you bought into a two-year contract a little more than two years ago, possibly because of shortcomings in the first iPhone (a perfectly reasonable decision), you would have been watching with jealous eye the introduction of the 3G, the 3GS, and the launch and growth of the App Store. I wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to change horses. BlackBerry makes… Read More

  • Leaked: Sprint HTC Touch Pro2 to get Windows Mobile 6.5 this week

    Are you ready for your Windows Mobile 6.5 update, Sprint HTC Touch Pro2 owners? You should be — given that every other carrier threw 6.5 on the Pro2 months ago, you’re probably champin’ at the bit by now. We knew it was coming this month — we just didn’t know when. Thanks to your friendly neighborhood Sprint store spy, we’ve now got an exact date. Read More

  • T-Mobile Cliq XT to go on sale tomorrow for $99?

    If we were to take everything the rumormill said as gospel, we’d tell you that the Motorola Cliq XT launched in all of its Android glory on March 10th. Given that it’s now nearly a week later and the Cliq XT has yet to hit the shelves, we’d say that the rumormill is a dirty, dirty liar. Or, you know, something changed at the last minute. Either way, now there’s a… Read More

  • Chinese iPhone Air is super thin, super fake

    Come, friends! Circle ’round and let me tell you a tale of the finest fake in all the lands. Is your standard, completely not-shady iPhone too thick and legitimate for you? 12.3mm thick? That’s like a loaf of bread! What you need, friend, is the iPhone Air. Not only have they managed to completely rip off everything from the body design to the user interface (presumably poorly)… Read More

  • Nexus One with AT&T (and Rogers!) 3G now on sale

    A new challenger has appeared! The Nexus One may not have sold all that well, but it’s still the beastiest Android handset available on US carriers. Speaking of US carriers, add one more to the Nexus One’s supported list. Since day 1, the T-Mobile version of the Nexus One has worked with AT&T — as long as you didn’t mind that it couldn’t hop on AT&T’s… Read More

  • Google: Android Market now serving 30,000 apps

    At the most recent Mobile World Congress, Google CEO Eric Schmidt revealed that the company’s partners are now selling over 60,000 Android handsets on a daily basis. With that kind of growth rate, it’s no wonder that the size of the Android Market is quickly increasing in its slipstream. While Google doesn’t publicly show how many applications there are in Android Market… Read More
