    Nokia 5300 XpressMusic Review

    The market for music phones is growing every month. Demand for integration and combination is adding increased pressure on manufacturers such as Sony and Nokia to combine the functionality of an MP3 player inside a cellphone. Nokia’s latest effort, the 5300 XpressMusic from T-Mobile is a valiant effort that comes with both faults and favors. If you’re thinking about leaving the iPod at… Read More

    Neochroma Brings Your Cellphone To The Big Screen

    No matter who you are, you’re bound to have at least one juicy video on your cellphone. Whether it’s footage of a riot, you making out with some girl, or Blake’s Mom giving a lavish striptease, chances are your cellphone screen is just too small to enjoy watching anything longer than 30 seconds. Neochroma is looking to change that by blowing up the size of your cellphone’s… Read More

    Phone and Remote Get Hitched

    The days of losing your cell phone or TV remote are now over. Now you can lose them both at once. Dave White at Mobile Magazine posts about a soon-to-be-released phone in Korea that supports wireless and SMS — and also doubles as a TV, DVD or PVR remote. No word yet on price or availability. White laments that it’s kind of pointless, because it only will be available in Korea, and I… Read More

    Sony-Ericsson W880i: Halloween Edition

    We’ve heard so much about the Sony-Ericsson W880i over the past week that we’re starting to think it might jump out of the shadows and pounce at any moment. Either way, here’s another prototype version in black and orange. It’ll still have the same 2MP camera, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.0, HSDPA, and other great features that the original W880i we saw comes with. Hit the jump for… Read More

  • Welcome to the Social: Zune Phone Style

    Welcome to the Social: Zune Phone Style

    With the news breaking about Microsoft responding to an iPhone announcement with a possible Zune Cell Phone, we wondered what feature they’d most want to have. One of the most unique elements of the Zune is its ability to share music wirelessly and socially. “Hey, while I have you on the phone, do you want to hear that new Shins song? Let me shoot it to you…” Read More

    T-Mobile Getting HTC Athena

    Look out T-Mo customers, a new bad boy is in (a very European) town! T-Mobile will be releasing the HTC Athena as the “Ameo” in Europe in a few weeks.

    Boy Genius Unleashes High Quality HTC Vox Pix

    We know that the previous set of HTC Vox pics were, at best, blurry as hell. But thanks to the power of 3D product rendering photography, we now present to you the HTC Vox in all its glory. In case you’re not up to date, this is the hot HTC jaunt that’s probably coming out for AT&T later in the year. It runs Windows Mobile Crossbow, has a 2-megapixel camera, a slide out QWERTY… Read More

The Prada phone or KE850 from LG is looking to be quite the sexy phone. It has a touchscreen and a design that sort of reminds us of the iPhone, but in no way is it a competitor to the iPhone. Why? Not everyone is down with Prada. I might be, but… Read More

  • Pharos Brings GPS-Enabled Smartphone to USA

    We like the E-Ten Glofiish X500, a Windows Mobile 5 smartphone with a true GPS receiver built-in. Pharos will be the first label to carry the handset in America, calling it the GPS Phone, because it’s imaginative. To be announced tomorrow, it will be sold as an unlocked GSM smartphone, for about $700 at “major retail outlets”, which means you might actually see this high-end… Read More

    Snakes On A Phone: Vertu Cobra

    Here’s a riddle for you kiddies. What costs more than a Lamborghini, has a bejeweled snake on it, and is designed for those who need compensation in their nether regions? Give up? It’s the Vertu Cobra! I totally fooled you. The Cobra costs a whopping $310,000 and comes with tons of diamonds, emeralds and an load of rubies. Don’t forget though, this is a Vertu.

    Helio Allows Customers To Use Obopay

    Today Helio announced that its subscribers will be able to pay their bills via Obopay. Targeted mostly for pay-as-you-go users, Obopay is the latest in MasterCard’s way of having you spend money on their terms. It works sort-of like a prepaid credit card that you can use to top up minutes, buy crappy wallpapers, and such. But it’s also so much more! Helio says that if you have a phone… Read More

    Samsung SCH-W531 in FCC Limbo

    Keep your eye out in the future for the Samsung SCH-W531.

    The KRZR, The KRZR, The KRZR's On Fire!

    Ouch! I almost burned my hand typing up this post. You see, the KRZR is so hot, that Motorola just had to introduce a new color that could capture the heat. So behold the creatively titled KRZR Fire. This guy comes with a delicious red paint job that reminds me of a fire engine mixed with some holiday cheer. Not only is it bright red on the outside, but also the color drips into the cracks on the… Read More

  • W531 Dual-Class Phone Makes Its Way to Sprint

    GSM is used by most of the world as a standard for cellular communications. Sprint and Verizon have traditionally poo-pooed the idea of being compatible. After all, the phones are locked to the provider’s network, so who cares? Sprint does, it seems. It’s prepping Samsung’s W531. It’s a CDMA phone with a GSM SIM slot, a dual-class badboy, like a half-mage/half-paladin. Read More

    I-Mate JAQ4 Phone Could Be Blackjack Killer

    Hmm, looks like the JAQ4 from I-Mate borrowed a few design tips from Samsung when creating this beast. IN addition to the smooth, metallic looks and a QWERTY keypad, the JAQ4 runs Windows Mobile 5.0, has a 2.8-inch touchscreen, WiFi, Bluetooth, miniSD, and GPS all built-in. As lovely as this masterpiece of a phone is, there’s no word yet on when it will be available or how much it will cost. Read More

    Sony-Ericsson Z310 Comes With Good Looks, Good Features

    I’ll hand it to Sony-Ericsson: They make some great looking phones and the Z310 is definitely one of them. Equipped with a mirror-finish on the front of the phone, this clamshell comes in black, bronze or pink. An integrated icon display appears on the front of the phone and is similar to that of Sony’s 8GB MP3 Walkman. Tech specs on the Z310 are pretty sweet. Be prepared for EDGE… Read More

    Nokia 6086 Approved By FCC

    A week or so ago, we told you about that Nokia 6086 cellphone with UMA and quad-band GSM. Originally, it was slated for a European release in early 2007. Now the 6086 has been approved by the FCC and will be heading stateside relatively soon. Apparently, T-Mobile will be getting the phone first and will offer it for around $200 sometime in 2007. Also, though the phone has UMA and the ability to… Read More

    Comcast Begins Offering Limited Wireless Phone Service

    The race is on for telecom companies to catch up to the cable companies. With Comcast already offering Broadband Internet, Digital Cable, and Digital Voice service for only $33 a piece all on one bill, companies like Verizon need to start raising the stakes if they want to stay afloat. Now Comcast is offering a cellphone service to their customers in limited areas. If you live in Boston, MA or… Read More

    NEC Develops Prototype Phone To Cater To Gumby

    Remember back in the late 1980s, early 1990s when some company developed those rulers that would snap around your wrist? Well NEC apparently was a huge fan and this new concept cellphone they’ve developed is no exception. Dubbed the “tag”, these cellphones are made up of a shape-memorizing rubber that can be twisted and controlled to your liking. The picture shows three different… Read More

    Congress Allows Orgy Between T-Mo’s Zeta-Jones, Cingular’s Jack

    Those of you who use a GSM-based provider in the best goddamned country in the world (hint: U.S.A.) should rejoice, as Congress has ruled that it’s OK to get your cellphone unlocked so you can use it with a competing provider. Those of you with T-Mobile are probably yawning and going “Yeah yeah…T-Mobile has been letting us unlock our phones once every 90 days dude.”… Read More
