    Sprint's HTC Touch review [update]

    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

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

    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]

    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

    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

    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

    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

    Doesn’t look any different than the Touch Vince had months ago minus the 20-key slide. [via Mobility Site] Read More

  • T-Mobile Shadow pics surface: VGA screen?

    T-Mobile Shadow pics surface: VGA screen?

    The only thing I love more than a good unboxing is a series of “spy” shots. El Boy Genius’ moles sent him shots of the HTC Shadow, which will be part of the T-Mobile family when it’s released. The screen could very well be of the VGA variety, since it’s “incredible.” Bold words. Just one more shot inside, so as not to steal the Genius’ thunder. Read More

  • HTC Phoebus hits FCC, looks just like the Juno [UPDATE]

    HTC Phoebus hits FCC, looks just like the Juno [UPDATE]

    A new HTC device dubbed Phoebus has breezed by the FCC and surprisingly it looks a lot like the HTC Juno, which we broke a few weeks ago. Some of the features on the Phoebus are strikingly similar to that of the Juno and I’m inclined to believe that’s what it is. Specs reveal it to be a GSM 850/1900 handset with a 2-megapixel camera. There isn’t a whole lot more to be… Read More

    CrunchExclusive: HTC Juno Hitting AT&T

    We here at the Gear have many secrets we don’t always divulge to you, dear readers, but once in a while we like to let a few things leak. This happens to be one of them and we’re sure you’ll like it. We have it from an inside source that HTC is bringing out a mid-level smart phone that’s sort of a GSM variant of the CDMA Fusion aka Libra. Details are scant and our… Read More

  • AT&T Tilt ROM Screenshots, Same Ole WinMo 6

    AT&T Tilt ROM Screenshots, Same Ole WinMo 6

    We broke the news on the Tilt’s launch date and pricing the other week and now a few (over 60) screenshots of the finalized ROM have made their way around the Web. If WinMo 6 is your thing then get ready to go buck wild. Better have some tissues handy. Read More

  • Sprint's Fall Lineup Includes Touch, Gandolf

    Palm’s Gandolf has officially introduced itself to NA as the Centro. Well, we’re led to believe it’s called the Centro based on an app on the home screen that’s called, “About Centro.” Sprint reps were referring to the Centro as a “shrunk-down 755p” that includes EV-DO and it’ll only be $99 with a two-year contract. Don’t worry… Read More

  • HTC Iris Clears The FCC

    HTC Iris Clears The FCC

    The good ole FCC has confirmed that HTC’s next mobile phone juggernaut will be launching in the US this fall. Say hello to the Iris aka S640. It isn’t much to look at now, but those of you on Sprint or Verizon should listen up. Let’s be honest for a minute. This is like, the red headed stepchild among the HTC family, but it does have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, WinMo 6, 2-megapixel… Read More

    Oops: Pre-prod HTC Units Possibly Sent To Retailers

    Uh oh. It seems as though the new HTC Advantage has been shipped to CompUSA, Amazon.com, and possibly elsewhere as pre-production units. Users are being greeted with the message “test only, not for sale” when the device is booted up for the first time. The glitch can easily be fixed by updating the software via a PC but if these devices aren’t yet ready for production from… Read More

    Hugo Ortega Spends 60 Hours With The HTC Shift

    Hugo Ortega of GottaBeMobile.com spent 60 sensuous and romantic hours with the HTC Shift recently and ended up describing the device as “one of the BEST Ultra Mobile PC I have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. If I were a manufacturer of a UMPC, or with a UMPC about to hit the market, then I would be shaking in my boots given what The HTC Shift is capable of.” Read More

  • Breaking: AT&T Tilt Price And Launch Date Leaked

    Breaking: AT&T Tilt Price And Launch Date Leaked

    You heard it here first, folks. We have it from an inside source that the AT&T Tilt (aka 8925 aka Kaiser) hits stores September 3rd for $499 with 2-year plan. No word on 1-year pricing, but this flagship phone should be all over the place in a little less than a month. Read More

  • HTC Kaiser = AT&T Tilt; Coming Soon

    HTC Kaiser = AT&T Tilt; Coming Soon

    The Kaiser is coming, and maybe sooner than we thought. An avid CrunchGear reader and commenter was in his local AT&T store and asked about the AT&T 8925 smartphone. The phone monkeys said that yes, the 8925 would be replacing the 8525 soon, either at the end of August or the beginning of September. If you’ve been waiting to take the plunge on a Windows Mobile high-end… Read More

  • HTC Nike, Touch Who?

    HTC Nike, Touch Who?

    Many of us on domestic soil are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the HTC Touch, but the rumor mill is abuzz with talks of the P5500 aka Nike. This has long been rumored to be the Touch II, but the specs put it in a class of its own. The common bond between the two may be the TouchFlo interface, but the Nike blows the Touch out of the water. An auto-sliding keyboard is the key differentiation. Read More

  • Kaiser One Goose-Step Closer to AT&T

    Kaiser One Goose-Step Closer to AT&T

    That hot, hot Kaiser we told you about has cleared FCC muster, meaning it could be hitting the shelves of your local AT&T any time. For those in need of a refresher, the Kaiser is the latest rendition of HTC’s Slidy-McQWERTY line of Windows Mobile smartphones. With 3G, Wi-Fi, and a large touch-screen, its ancestors include the AT&T 8125 and the 8525. The standard Kaiser has a… Read More
