    HTC Desire headed for AT&T, Sprint picks up Legend (as Hero2)?

    HTC seemed pretty confident that the HTC Desire and HTC Legend weren’t US-bound when we talked to them at Mobile World Congress. But hey, things change — right? Boy Genius Report has just received word that the two handsets are bound for this side of the ocean, along with details on which carriers might be nabbing them. Read More

  • Video: BGR demos the BlackBerry Bold's Web browser

    http://services.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f8/687242818 Dare I say it, but I think my interest in the Bold is beginning to wane. BGR demos both IE and FF emulators that both crash, but that OS sure does it look pretty. Of course, I can’t pass judgment on something I haven’t seen in person, yet. Any BlackBerry fans being swayed either way by this video? Read More

  • Video: BGR unboxes the iP3G, nothing to see here, really

    http://services.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f8/687242818 BGR’s iP3G hasn’t been activated, so there’s really nothing to see here other than a comparison between the gen 1 iPhone and it’s predecessor. It’s definitely slimmer and curvier, though. Read More

    BGR unboxes the iPhone 3G, for real

    BGR, once again, spoils things for the rest of us. I’m not sure I even want to wake up on Friday to go and get my iP3G. Read More

  • BlackBerry BIE 2.5 coming to T-Mobile tonight, OS 4.5 not coming til September

    BlackBerry BIE 2.5 coming to T-Mobile tonight, OS 4.5 not coming til September

    Well, it’s nice to know that T-Mobile will be upgrading BIE to 2.5 tonight, but without the upgrade to OS 4.5 it’s pretty much useless. I would love nothing more than to finally have HTML e-mail, but it’s simply a waste of my time for T-Mobile to upgrade because none of us are running OS 4.5. It’s more of a nuisance to have the downtime, right? So don’t expect to… Read More

    Rumor: iPhone 3G to be available at Radio Shack and Best Buy

    BGR’s “Apple ninja” is claiming that the iPhone 3G may be available for sale at Radio Shack and Best Buy, but it’s unknown whether or not this will take effect on the 11th if it happens at all. Yeah. Whatever. Read More

    iPhone firmware 2.0 out and about

    BGR does it again. Now we know what Exchange and the Parental Controls look like. Hooray. Not. Maybe just a little.

    Sprint selling 'HTC Touch' starting November 4th

    Hey, have you been patiently waiting for the HTC Touch to be released as part of Sprint’s Q4 offerings? Well, it’ll be here pretty soon. The phone "will be priced at $249.99 with a two-year subscriber agreement and a $100 mail-in rebate." I’m pretty sure that means that it’ll cost $250 after rebate but these slick-willy PR people have made an ass of me plenty of… Read More

  • BGR Hates On Sony Ericsson P1 And So Should You

    BGR Hates On Sony Ericsson P1 And So Should You

    The Boy Genius has his hands on the SE P1 and he’s very disappointed. The P1 may have a 3.2-megapixel camera, UIQ, RSS reader, 3D games, e-mail and its quasi-QWERTY keyboard, but it sucks, according to BGR. His biggest gripe is the keyboard and its “poor implementation.” Without actually having touched one myself, I’m inclined to agree with the Boy Genius. It’s… Read More

  • RAZR MAXX Ve Set to Drop Tomorrow?

    Verizon tomorrow is set to release the only phone from the RAZR line that we kinda like, the MAXX Ve. The MAXX is similar to other RAZRs in form factor, but adds a hefty 2MP auto-focus camera with true flash and an oversized external LCD. With the built-in EV-DO connectivity, this little clamshell is destined to flickr. It should hit at around $200 with a 2-year contract, and we’d expect it… 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.

    BGR Unboxes The Sony-Ericsson W880i

    Those of you who took a keen interest in the W880i should throw your hands up in excitement, as The Boy Genius Report has posted a plethora of unboxing photos. From well-designed packaging, to the built-in RSS reader on the phone, to the polished metal design, this phone is absolutely loaded. Not since the W800i have I gotten as excited for a Sony-Ericsson phone. Interestingly, BGR calls out other… Read More

    BGR Does The Blackberry 8800

    Though the Blackberry 8800 from RIM doesn’t look much different than the 8700, it’s what’s inside that counts. Boy Genius got his grubby mitts on a brand spankin’ new 8800, which features WiFi, improved screen and faster hardware. Plus check out the curves on this beauty! The improved design looks more streamlined and professional when compared to the toyish 8700. Hit the… Read More

    They’ve done it again! Our peeps over at Boy Genius Report got their paws on on a spankin’ new Verizon MAXX Ve from Motorola. Equipped with an auto-focusing 2MP camera and MP3 playback, the MAXX looked like a promising phone until I scrolled down and saw this… Read More
