• Asus R50A UMPC does GPS, wins CES award

    Is the R50A for you? According to Asus, it’s "the one indispensable gadget for everyone" thanks to its GPS, 3G/3.5G, webcam, and "full notebook functionality" features. It also has a built-in TV tuner. Everyone needs a TV tuner. The R50A scooped up a 2008 International CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award in the Computer Hardware category. That’s all… Read More

  • AT&T adds slim Samsung slider* just in time for the holidays

    AT&T’s latest slider comes from…you guessed it…Samsung. The a737 is an ultra thin and lightweight device with features focused around multimedia and entertainment. The a737 is fastened with a 1.3-megapixel camera (1.3? Seriously?!), video share, stereo Bluetooth, and an external microSD port. Not sure how big the screen is, but it better be big because the features aren’t… Read More

  • Dear T-Mobile: A progress report

    We should start by saying that we love you. You’re the underdog, which always gets to us. You’ve kept a core customer base and you have fair voice and data plans. You’re the good guys in the American GSM world. And a year ago, we talked about how you were rolling out your 3G network, and how excited we were for you, and for us. But that was a year ago. Here we are, with the… Read More

  • HTC Polaris is now the Touch Cruise: GPS, Wi-Fi and 3G

    There’s a new HTC phone in town and yes it’s a Touch. HTC renamed the Polaris the Touch Cruise, a GPS-having WiMo6-based smartphone that’s due in November. That it includes 802.11b/g Wi-Fi is a welcome development (glad to see Wi-Fi becoming standard on smartphones… last year was rough in that department), though I wonder just how many people were clamoring for built-in… Read More

  • Sprint to launch WiMAX network this Spring

    Let’s talk about WiMAX, friends. WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a fairly new wireless standard currently being used by companies like Clearwire to provide internet access “wirelessly”. It can also be used as a fourth-gen standard for cellphones, and we know that Sprint is rolling out its 4G WiMAX network right now. What’s we’ve… Read More

  • AT&T quietly launches Sierra 881 3G PCMCIA card

    We absolutely love 3G and how it’s rolling out right now. AT&T loves 3G, too. So much, in fact, that its giving away its brand new Sierra Wireless 881 card for free (after shifty rebate) when you sign-up for a two-year soul-sucking contract at $59.99 a month (for unlimited data, $29.99 for 10MB or less). Now, we’ve used AT&T’s HSDPA network and got download speeds… Read More

  • Skype launching branded mobile phone

    From our big brother TechCrunch comes news that Skype will be releasing a branded mobile phone later this month. The device will be released in partnership with 3 Mobile in Britain, Italy, Hong Kong and Australia, with three more countries to follow by years end. Unfortunately for us patriots here in the USA, we won’t be seeing this mystic Skype phone anytime soon, as there are currently… Read More

  • T-Mobile launches first 3G handset for 3G-less network

    No need to freak out over this quiet launch of the 3G Samsung t639 for T-mo. There’s no way in hell they’re even close to launching their 3G network because they’re waiting on the US government to relinquish the spectrum T-mobile purchased last year. If it concerns national security, which it does, we won’t see jack from T-mo’s 3G network for years to come so… Read More

  • 3G iPhone hits the streets (kinda)

    Many of you have switched from your old smartphone to the iPhone. While I can’t agree it was as good idea (yet), I can see why you’d want to: the iPhone is far more enjoyable to use than any Windows Mobile device to date. But if you still have the WinMo phone, and it’s of the Wi-Fi-having sort, and it’s 3G, then you can use it as a replacement for your iPhone’s… Read More

  • Could be: BlackBerry 9000 to have stateside 3G, due early next year

    Some spotty details on the upcoming BlackBerry 9xxx for you this Zune-tastic Wednesday. (Zune-tastic in that there’s been a lot of Zune news, not that I’m pro or against Microsoft, the Zune, Zune 2, or any of its subsidiaries or shareholders.) Does full-on, HSDPA 3G sound good to you? What about a 600MHz processor, hopefully eliminating the lag that plagues certain BlackBerry models? Read More

  • Sling Announces SlingPlayer Mobile For Symbian OS Handsets

    By pure coincidence Sling has announced that the SlingPlayer Mobile software is now working with Nokia Nseries and Eseries hand sets running the Symbian S60 3rd edition software. The coincidence stems from Nokia’s US launch of the HSDPA N95. That sounds fantastic. I’d love to watch my shows while on the road on my phone. To sweeten the deal Sling is offering current and future… Read More

  • Nokia Releases 3G N95 Into The US

    Been waiting for the Nokia N95 with 3G? Well, the wait is now over. Nokia released the unlocked N95 into the wild today. In case you’ve forgotten what all the hubbub is about then check here for details. Otherwise, if you’re lucky enough to have a Nokia store in your town, which means you live in NYC or Chicago. Get ready to pony up $700, though. Yikes. Product Page Read More
