  • AT&T may have fibbed regarding Sling player for iPhone

    Just the other day, AT&T announced that it was able to work with Sling Media in order to optimize Sling player for AT&T’s 3G network.

After all, Sling users were disappointed about the lack of a Sling player on the iPhone… Read More

  • Nexus One slated to arrive in AT&T 3G flavor

    When the Google Nexus One was announced early last month, Android fans went giddy with excitement, especially since there is an option to buy it unlocked. The only downside was that if you wanted 3G service, you were limited to T-Mobile’s decent, but smaller network. AT&T users are still out of luck and limited to EDGE speeds on the handset, but according to documents filed at the… Read More

  • Samsung UFO Cellphones: Mind The Heat Ray

    Remember during the 90s when every two-bit TV network put “They’ve Seen a UFO!” on the air? Yup, they were completely stupid all right. I very much doubt Samsung had those programs, and the related UFO subculture, in mind when it came up with the name for its SCH-W300, SPH-W3000 and SGH-U700 cellphones. They are known—surprise!—as the UFO. I really don’t… Read More

  • Too Bad Mobile TV is Dead in the Water Here: Sharp Aquos 912SH

    It’s an incremental upgrade to be sure, but Sharp’s Aquos 912SH cellphone embodies something that’ll never take off here: mobile TV.

Mod the hell out of her computer, that’s what. Tnkgrl went ahead and ripped out that EVDO like a loose hangnail and replaced it with a brand spankin’ new HSDPA card. Doesn’t look like it took too much work, but… Read More

  • LG Shine Gets 3G HSDPA, Now Does Video Calls, Still Not Here

    LG must hate America because not only has it still not released the Shine here yet, but it’s already going to launch an updated version with 3G (HSDPA) capabilities this month. The extra bandwidth can be used for video calls thanks to the built-in VGA camera.

That is supposedly the rumored Sony Ericsson W999i Walkman phone. It looks absolutely stunning… Read More
