  • HTC Touch coming to Verizon: People who liked the Sprint Touch had better switch carriers, shave their bodies, prepare for His coming

    Actually, I’m just joking. The Verizon Touch is a little slimmer than the Sprint version and it’s all white, but it’s really not the second coming of the great corn god Centeotl. It is, in fact, slim PDA with featuring a fairly cool UI trick bolted onto the a rat turd baked into a loaf of German black bread and then eaten inadvertently by a five year old boy who then throws up… Read More

  • T-Mobile keeps on giving

    No disrespect to the original, but BHIC does a damn good job here. Give it a minute before you hit the jump for the one and only. Looking to switch carriers? T-mobile near the top of the list? Well, the deal just got sweeter because they’re waiving the $35 activation fee for n00bs until the end of the year. So scoot on over to your local store or check out the site. The Curve, Sidekick… Read More

  • Taiwan scores big with handsets this year

    Mobile handset production in Taiwan is currently up 82 percent from last year and the first quarter of next year is forecast to see a 150 percent increase over the first quarter of 2007. This growth is thanks in large part to device manufacturer HTC’s popular handsets and a little upstart device called the "iPhone" (whatever that is). The value of devices shipped out of Taiwan… Read More

  • CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: Sprint HTC Touch

    The Touch by HTC, which will be offered by Sprint on November 4, is hands down one of the best devices I’ve used in the past two years. That says a lot considering the number of devices that roll through the CrunchGear offices. But to each his own, I say. The Touch has been an integral part of my stay in the Bay Area and has saved me on more than one occasion. When I first saw the… Read More

  • Verizon's VX6800: A meta-write-up

    Another day, another hot Windows Mobile-based smartphone made by HTC. This is the sentence where we talk about the QWERTY keyboard. This is where we mention the touchscreen. This is where we talk about the 2-Megapixel camera, the Wi-Fi, and the EV-DO data connection. Now it’s a new paragraph, where we talk about how though the hardware’s neat, we bemoan using Widnows Mobile 6… Read More

  • HTC Touch Cruise groped on film

    The HTC Touch Cruise, which looks strikingly similar to the Android demo is now official. In Europe. As expected the TouchFLO UI is present in case you didn’t pick that up from the name. It runs WinMo 6, which is bearable with TouchFLO, has a built-in GPS, HSDPA, stereo Bluetooth and 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi. You’re not even reading this anyway since there’s a video. HTC Touch… Read More

  • gPhone Madness: The creepiest entry to date


    The gPhone madness contest is still going strong. Remember to vote early and often for your favorite entrants and that we also count comments in the judging.

  • Gphone madness: contest entries keep rolling in

    Here’s the deal: in order to celebrate the non-release of the gPhone, we’re asking you, our dear readers, to offer up some potential applications for the Android platform. They can be silly, smart, or stupid. Take this one, for example: Here’s an idea for an open source Gphone application that could make you a little cash: Turn your cell phone into a traffic camera. As you… Read More

  • HTC Omni = Google Dream (??)

    There hasn’t been too much information since last July about the HTC Omni, but rumors have definitely been circulating. The latest and greatest rumor flying around is the HTC Omni might be the Google OS Demo unit titled, “Dream.” Why the speculation? There are some glaring similarities between the two devices. According to Google, the “Dream” will feature a… Read More

  • Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?

    Say hello to the HTC Juno better known as the Shadow from T-mobile. The Shadow marks a brand new day for T-mobile to bring consumers a different look at Windows Mobile 6 that makes it easier and more playful to use. The slider is myFaves compatible, with WI-Fi, a 2.6-inch screen, EDGE-enabled, is equipped with a spinning nav wheel and a 2-megapixel camera. The UI is extremely easy to use and… Read More

  • Windows Mobile: How I loathe thee [Update]

    Yes, it’s no secret that I dislike Windows Mobile, but I have before me two WinMo devices from HTC; the Touch from Sprint and the Tilt from AT&T. I’m excited at the prospect of tinkering with both and yet I can’t help but wonder if I’ll accept WinMo with open arms and keep an objective view on the OS without my utter hatred clouding my judgement. Can the WinMo users… 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

  • Hands on with the Sprint HTC Touch

    I know you’ve already heard about the Touch from Vince, but I arrived in San Francisco today and waiting for me was the Sprint Touch, which goes on sale November 4th. I haven’t slept in, I don’t even know how long, so we’ll leave this to an unboxing. A full review of the Touch on Sprint’s network coming at you…soon…probably next week…maybe this weekend. Read More

  • Hands-on with the AT&T Tilt

    We like HTC. We like what they do with the cellphone carriers in the USA. We like that they make high-end handsets that the vendors can label themselves, thereby adding some parity in the phone market. As most major HTC phones have versions for all four carriers, you don’t have to feel like you’re missing out because you’re stuck on Verizon or whatever. And we like that… Read More

  • HTC P6500 is fugly, but powerful

    The Touch Slide may not be your cups of tea so take a gander at the P6500. It certainly isn’t the prettiest thing I’ve laid my eyes on, but its suite of features is quite impressive. The quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and tri-band UMTS/HSDPA device includes 1GB of storage, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 3.5-inch touch screen, 3-megapixel camera, fingerprint and bar code scanning, dos SD ports… Read More
