  • Pantech gets official with the Matrix Pro for AT&T

    You’ve seen this form factor on many occasions from Pantech with the Helio Ocean being the most notable of the bunch and probably the best. I’m a fan of Matrix, but haven’t actually touched it myself, yet. The Duo was an utter failure and POS, but the Matrix Pro looks like a champ. It’s a full-fledged Windows Mobile 6.1 device with the familiar dual keyboard slide… Read More

  • Lens-on with the Vodafone HTC Magic [UPDATED]

    It wasn’t quite final hardware (the face buttons are slightly different – a bit larger and round) and we weren’t allowed to touch the thing, but we just got back from spending a bit of time with the second-ever Android phone to make its way into a carrier’s line up. The HTC Magic, essentially a polished up and physical keyboard-less G1, totes a 3.2 megapixel camera… Read More

  • All known Palm Pre features

  • 2012: Year of the Universal Mobile Charger?!

    Earlier today, the GSMA announced that it has successfully brokered a deal with leading handset manufacturers and network operators to standardize mobile chargers by 2012 (for most, but not all cellular phones). The primary goal of this new agreement is to cut down on the environmental impact created by trashing old chargers. According to the AP: The GSMA calculates a reduction in… Read More

  • Sidekick 2009 spotted in the wild

    There she be, folks. We still don’t really know anything about the Sidekick 2009 aka Blade other than what showed up in an online survey, but we do know that that’s new hardware. The image is too small to glean any tid bits, but at least we know they’re out there. It’s just a matter of time before T-Mobile makes it official. Do we have any Sidekick 2009 users in the… Read More

  • InThrMa takes your (Proliphix) thermostat to the "next level"

    Is there anything worse (ok, maybe our current economy) than having to get out of your glorious warm bed to turn up the thermostat? Clearly, the answer is a resounding NO. Well, if you have a Proliphix (who?) thermostat, hate installing software, and have a connected web browser then you are in luck my lazy friends! InThrMa (Intelligent Thermal Management) is a web-based (aka nothing to… Read More

  • Yahoo Mobile Also Wants to Claim The “My Phone” Moniker.

    What would you rather have, an iPhone or a My Phone? Both Microsoft and Yahoo think you want a My Phone. On the iPhone section of its Website detailing the revamped Yahoo Mobile service, due to launch publicly in March, Yahoo marketers try to drum up interest in the new offering by using this headline in its marketing campaign: From iPhone™ to “my” phone. The iPhone trademark… Read More

  • Hands on: Samsung OmniaHD

    Oh Samsung OmniaHD, how lovely your 3.7″ AMOLED touchscreen is. Really – it’s friggin’ gorgeous. Be it the 8 megapixel camera, the 720p video recording, or the deafeningly loud stereo speakers, we love just about everything about it from a hardware standpoint – but we’re not too sure about the software. We got to put our mitts all up on the Samsung OmniaHD… Read More

  • AT&T's CEO outs Dell's smartphone ambitions

    According to the rumors, Dell is suppose to unveil an Android smartphone at MWC09. So far the hardware hasn’t shown up but the AT&T CEO seemed to confirm the upcoming smartphone while speaking on a MWC panel. Now, it could be that he read our coverage and simply assumed it was general knowledge or Dell really is prepping a smartphone. Read More

  • Vodafone and HTC announce the Android-powered Magic

    We were just starting to worry that Mobile World Congress 2009 would go without pass by without an Android press announcement, but Vodafone and HTC have swooped in to save they day. They just announced the HTC Magic, a full touchscreen Android device which bears quite the resemblance to the HTC G1 – except with a bit more polish, and without a keyboard. It’s also a perfect match… Read More

  • Live Blog: Vodafone press conference, HTC Magic announced

    We’re live at the relatively low key Vodafone press conference at Mobile World Congress, where they’re apparently announcing the Android-powered HTC G2 – otherwise known as the HTC Magic (Update: They specifically said that this is not being referred to as the G2. Looks like the G-numbering is a T-mo-only thing.) Read More
