    There has been a few rumors about Sprint cutting the price on the Palm Pre the last few days. Those might still work out, but until then there is this deal. There is a lot of fine print with the offer, but if you’ve been eyeing a Palm Pre, you should definitely see if you qualify. Read More

    Here comes the trickle, folks. With just two days left before the grand unveiling of Motorola’s first Android-powered device(s), the basic specs for two separate ‘Droid sets have shown up on Motorola’s own territory.

  • Verizon launches the Samsung Rogue

    After letting it float around in the rumorsphere for months on end, Verizon finally announced at the end of August that they would be launching the Samsung Rogue on September 8th. September 8th has come and, sure enough, so has the Samsung. The Rogue isn’t quite a smartphone, but it still packs a good amount of heat for a $99 messaging phone. It’s got a 3.1″ touchscreen, with… Read More

  • T-Mo T-oBuy O-Range I-n U-K

    Rumor has it that T-Mobile UK and Orange UK will merge, creating a 28.4 million customer uber-carrier. The next largest carrier will be Telefonica’s O2, the former heavyweight. The deal will be signed by November and the merged company will share networks and CRM services in the UK. This does not directly effect T-Mobile’s German parent company except in that it will lose its… Read More

  • HTC unveils the Tattoo

    HTC’s naming conventions are kind of funny. I was almost hoping that after the Hero they’d call this the HTC Ninjastar or the HTC Hobo, but sadly it ended up being the Tattoo. The Tattoo runs the Sense UI, which is great++ and it has a 3.2 megapixel camera, 3.5mm headset jack, and MicroSD memory slot. The phone will be available in Europe in October and, as we all well know, may… Read More

  • Rumor: Palm Pre getting a price cut?

    Palm picked a pretty nasty time to stage their own revival. Smartphone prices are plummeting. If an iPhone 3G S at $199 wasn’t enough, HTC’s Hero for Sprint further mucks things up by coming in at just $180. The only choice Sprint and Palm have at this point is to undercut everyone – and it looks like they’re about to. PreCentral just got a tip containing a brand… Read More

    phat [fat] adj. slang.
    1. <abrev.> Pretty Hot and Tempting.
    2. 1990’s slang largely used today by gangster wannabes and 13-year-olds.

  • Android Market Now Over 10,000 Applications Strong

    In the mobile OS world, Google’s Android is still a challenger but with the amount of devices that will be running the system that are due to come out in the coming months alone in combination with its open approach it is definitely a contestant to watch closely. The success of Apple’s App Store for the iPhone / iPod Touch is often measured by how many apps have already been… Read More

  • LG's first Android handset spotted: Meet the Etna (Again)

    Earlier this year, LG began offering a strange little QWERTY slider called the “Etna”. We didn’t hear much about the handset before or after launch (primarily because it was only available in the UK), but we don’t often forget a name. As such, we were quite surprised to find out that there is another device going by the Etna name – but this ones got a little… Read More
