  • 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

    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

    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

    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?

    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

    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

  • Kaiser Rolls to AT&T?

    Speaking of Germans and cellphones, today we learn that the HTC Kaiser is indeed coming to the US-and-A, courtesy of AT&T. Why the carrier is hogging all the high-end phones is anyone’s guess; we see them diluting their upper market with iPhone competitors as they try to cover every base, but whatevs. The QWERTY-sliding Windows Mobile 6 smarty should hit sometime next month, which… Read More

  • HTC Omni Definitely Not Omnipotent

    The HTC Touch has been on the market for a couple months now, so it’s no surprise that details of the latest HTC device is circulating the Interwebs. The Omni’s form-factor is reminiscent of a Nintendo DS, but it packs oodles of extras that might entice you to hold off on making a mobile phone purchase in the coming months. It has a touch-screen, 3.1-megapixel camera with LED… Read More

  • O2 Helen: Completely Out of the Blue and Not the iPhone

    There’s really not too much to say about this heretofore unseen Helen cellphone from O2. I could say that it sorta has an HTC-like vibe to it, but that could be just because it’s running WinMo 6 like the Wing. I could also say that its 3G-nessm, which includes UMTS, is impressive, but that’s only true because I’m an American whose country has the worst cellphone networks… Read More

  • Sprint Mogul: Like the Wing for the Sprint Kids


    Sprint just announced ad CDMA/EV-DO version of T-Mobile’s Wing, the HTC Mogul AKA “Da Mogul.” This slide-out smartphone runs Windows Mobile 6 and includes a 512MB memory card, a 2-megapixel camera with flash, and supports full EV-DO Rev. 0 data speeds. We here at CG actually really liked the Wing, and this is basically the same animal with faster browsing and a seemingly… Read More

  • HTC Touch At A Glance

    Just got back from an HTC Touch event at the Bryant Park Hotel here in NYC. Had a chance to go into the phone a bit, learn about what it can do, and went home with one. The video above should give you a general feel of how it looks and interacts with touch. It’s decent, but certainly no iPhone killer (and we obviously haven’t even touched the iPhone). Video playback is choppy and a… Read More

  • HTC Touch Officially Unveiled

    Today, HTC unveiled its competitor with the iPhone: the Touch. Known formerly as the Elf, the Touch features Windows Mobile 6 with a finger-touch display that uses HTC’s TouchFlo technology. Like the iPhone, you can use your fingers to navigate the phone’s menus and such or you can use a stylus if that’s to your liking. You can interact with a 3D-interface via your fingers… Read More

  • T-Mobile Wing Released

    Not like you didn’t already know about the Wing, but those of you with T-Mobile can now purchase the Wing. This MyFaves-enabled phone isn’t cheap and will run you $300 with a two-year contract, but oh is it feature-rich. Aside from the sliding QWERTY-pad, you’ll find Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi, EDGE, a full HTML browser, push e-mail, microSD, media player, and a 2.0-megapixel… Read More

  • HTC Elf Spotted in The Wild

    HTC churns out some great products here and there. The 8525, even with WinMo, is a nice phone to have around and gets the job done. The Elf is no different, hopefully. Encased in a pearly white finish is an EDGE/GPRS/UMTS/GSM handset with 64MB of RAM, 128MB of flash, a 2-megapixel camera, and a 2.8-inch touch screen display. The Elf also includes a mini-USB, Bluetooth 2.0 and audio output. Mr. Read More

  • New HTC Smartphone Headed to Sprint

    Sprint is getting serious on the smartphone action with the addition of the PPC-6800. A replacement for the aging 6700, the HTC Titan-based device is a WinMo 5, QWERTY sliding powerhouse. Like BoyGenius, we would have like to have seen it shipped with WinMo 6, but an upgrade should be available soon. The phone’s packed to the gills with fun, including a 320×240 touchscreen, WiFi… Read More

  • HTC Advantage Video Unboxing Is Mindblowingly Amazing

    Look, I don’t know who Tracy and Matt are, but I’m sure they’re nice guys. They’re so nice, in fact, that they’ve shot a video of them unboxing the HTC Advantage. There’s some stunning analysis in this piece, too: “It has some stuff inside,” “there must be some stuff underneath here,” etc. Unboxing: just another one of… Read More
