    iPhone Released on June 11 Says Cingular

    The iPhone will come out on June 11. Someone over at CNET had the bright of calling Cingular (well, AT&T) to ask them when the phone would come out, and the voice on the other end of the line revealed the June 11 date. The date makes sense: Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference begins that same day and, well, we (save for Dvorak) know it’s coming out in June at some… Read More

  • Video of the iPhone at CTIA: Hilarious Exec Blathers and Blathers

    http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=-3400073860479433164&hl=en Corporate dudes, please don’t try to be funny. It never works and you just end up looking silly. Take this guy at CTIA. He’s going on and on about how much the iPhone will change human history like it’s the wheel. Then he mentions a bunch of no-good punk kids and how they wanted him to “pull… Read More

  • Video Share From AT&T

    In a conference with Cingular/AT&T about their new service, Video Share, a mobile-to-mobile video chat service reminiscient of video chat in Europe. The service is rolling out this summer. The best part? They’re partnering with WWE and Napster for some video and music hotness. Also, we’ll be seeing a new phone from Apple – something called the iPhone –… Read More

  • AT&T Has 1 Million People Asking Them About The iPhone

    AT&T Has 1 Million People Asking Them About The iPhone

    Poor AT&T! With the soaring popularity of the iPhone and the launch date getting closer, over 1 million people have been bitching to AT&T/Cingular, asking when they can get their hands on an iPhone. Since AT&T isn’t taking advance orders for the phone (a smart move), the company has since started directing customers’ attention to a web page where they can sign up… Read More

  • Napster+AT&T=Free Music

    Starting April 1, AT&T customers will have access to over three million songs through Napster To Go for an entire year, free of charge. This service applies to wireless handset users with the right plan as well as customers who have home phone and broadband triple-pack bundle services. What makes the deal even sweeter than the year of free service is the ability to stream music to a handful… Read More

  • Sony-Ericsson Launches First 3G Phone for US-and-A

    Sony-Ericsson’s phones have gotten sexier as they’ve matured, much like yours truly. We’ve gotten word about a couple of new phones set to hit the US market, including one the Z750 with HSDPA, most likely headed to AT&T. Beside the 3G connectivity, it has a cool mirrored clamshell with a hidden LCD. It includes a 2-megapixel camera with an M2 card slot and a nifty… Read More

  • BGR Gets Cocky, Unboxes Red Blackberry Pearl

    BGR Gets Cocky, Unboxes Red Blackberry Pearl

    Looks like our pal Boy Genius is getting cocky. Apparently claiming a Red Blackberry Pearl being released on the completely wrong carrier counts as “calling it.” Don’t think so pal. Just because it came out on AT&T instead doesn’t mean you are a winner. But nonetheless, Boy Genius has got the hot unboxing action up on his site and boy is that Pearl looking mighty fine.

  • BlackBerry Pearl Gets AT&T Branding, Red Coat of Paint (So Does The Treo 680)

    BlackBerry Pearl Gets AT&T Branding, Red Coat of Paint (So Does The Treo 680)

    Cingular—oh excuse me, I mean AT&T—just announced red editions of the BlackBerry Pearl and the Treo 680. (The Treo is officially “crimson.”) Both are available immediately. That in and of itself shouldn’t grab any headlines, but the Pearl is the first device that’s been given the full AT&T branding, dumb all lowercase logo and all. That, on the… Read More

  • Blackberry 8300: Big Letdown IMO

    The Boy Genius has once again been privy enough to get his hands on the newest Blackberry, the 8300, that I’ve been drooling over for the last two weeks. To be honest the initial reports just seemed to good to be true. There is no video recording capability and no WiFi, very sad and disheartening. Did I mention it has AT&T branding? Ok, I’ll stop bashing on it because it does… Read More

  • AT&T, Yahoo Partnership in Peril

    AT&T, Yahoo Partnership in Peril

    Ruh-Roh, iPhone! The partnership that was supposed to make email on the iPhone sweeter than a kiss from a small Jack Russell puppy covered in sugar is now in jeopardy as the company-soon- to-be-known- as-the-company-formerly-known-as-Cingular and its parent company pare down the partnerships. The news is pretty tepid, but it was enough to drive down Yahoo stock and make us wonder if the… Read More

  • The New AT&T's First Smartphone: SMT5700

    The New AT&T's First Smartphone: SMT5700


    The SMT5700 is the AT&T’s first smartphone, hearkening back to the dark ages of the SMT5600 which was considered one of the best smartphones in the Americas before it disappeared. Looks like this new model is running WinMo 5 and has a 2-megapixel camera. Not sure if this is a contender in the WinMo6 landscape, but we shall see. Big changes afoot at Cingular/AT&T… Read More

  • AT&T Making Our Lives Better?

    AT&T is making the couch potato experience that much easier for subscribers by letting them control the TV with their cell phone. And I thought this was a useless idea. Beginning today, Homezone customers will have the option to control their DVRs through web-enabled mobile phones just like they would with their regular DVR remote. With the addition of this functionality, AT&T also… Read More

    AT&T Gets Gold RAZR V3xx Sans D&G

    For once T-Mobile users will have an EDGE (that was SO funny) on AT&T users. AT&T is getting the Motorola RAZR V3xx in gold without the D&G. Yup, you’ll be getting a seriously played out RAZR that’s gold and is exactly the same at T-Mo’s D&G RAZR – except there’s no D&G content anywhere. I can see it now: Guy 1: ::pulls out gold RAZR at party::

  • AT&T Taps MediaFLO for Mobile Live Streaming TV

    AT&T’s wireless division (AT&T Wireless + Cingular – simple name) has chosed MediaFLO to roll out its mobile TV service. MediaFLO is a subsidiary of QUALCOMM, the all-caps wireless infrastructure and chip manufacturer. The deal means that the Q can put its TV transceivers on AT&T’s wireless access towers, sending live TV to compatible handsets on the AT&T… Read More

  • Verizon Unifies Wireless, Landline, DSL Billing

    . Verizon Wireless customers who sign up for Verizon local and long-distance will receive unlimited calling between their phones and other on-network customers, from their mobiles or home phones. This is an incentive for Verizon users to unify their communications packages into what VZN is calling Freedom ONE-BILL (their caps, not ours). In addition to landline and mobile calling, the… Read More

  • AT&T Adds Pay-Per-Use PTT to Offerings

    AT&T Adds Pay-Per-Use PTT to Offerings

    Push to talk, or PTT, sucks. There aren’t many things more annoying than being at the mall and hearing someone’s phone chirp followed by a disembodied voice saying, “Dude, we’re at the Mervyns!” We hate that. Cingular/AT&T, though, thinks we deserve more of it, as it’s allowing all of its customers with compatible hardware access to PTT with other… Read More

  • AT&T Hooks The RAZR Up With HSDPA

    AT&T Hooks The RAZR Up With HSDPA

    Not sure why you’d buy a RAZR with HSDPA, but if you’re into gauche phones with terrible operating systems, then this must be your lucky day. After being given the FCC nod, the Motorola RAZR V3xx is now available through AT&T. Aside from HSDPA, the phone features Bluetooth with A2DP, microSD, and a 1.3MP camera for taking blurry glamor shots of you at the Jersey shore. You can… Read More

    Buy An iPhone, Get 1.5 Years Of Free Service

    File this one under “completely full of it,” but according to Mr. Deleon over at Gizmodo, those of you who make the iPhone plunge in June will be welcomed with 1.5 years of free AT&T wireless service. Sweet deal, but the only proof that exists of this phantom deal is Jim Cramer’s word. The Mad Money host (SELL! SELL! SELL!) claims that the plan is to persuade people to… Read More

    Leaked Motorola Investors Document Shows Off Slew Of New Products


    Thanks to a leaked investors document, the dudes over at Electronista think that updated 3G KRZR and RIZR models are due out soon. They point out that both phones now include a camera lenses on the front of the devices. Through this, they go on to explain in detail how this must mean that 3G versions are coming soon and that, clearly, they must HSDPA. Thus, the two phones will drop on AT&T. Read More

  • Cingular/AT&T Finally Drops Motorola KRZR

    to market. Cingy’s KRZR is the first GSM rendition of the RAZR successor to hit the streets in America, and its features are on par with its CDMA cousins, including a 2-Megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, and microSD. It also supports instant messaging for AIM, MSN, and Yahoo! networks. We’d heard gossip that the phone would drop for Xmas, but for some reason Cingular waited until… Read More
