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

    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 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

    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

    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 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

  • AT&T Adds Multimedia Updates for the 8525

    AT&T Adds Multimedia Updates for the 8525

    AT&T thinks your smartphone needs more functionality, so it’s published an update to the popular 8525 that grants many multimedia features for free. Users now have access to XM Satellite Radio Mobile, push to talk, and Sex and the City. Truly an important download. All new 8525′s will have the update pre-loaded. What’s more, a free Windows Mobile 6 upgrade will be… Read More

  • New HTC Smartphone Headed to Sprint

    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

  • Google Phone: Here Before The End of 2007?

    Google Phone: Here Before The End of 2007?

    Stop living your life for just a second because we have a possible release date for the rumored Google Phone: late 2007. Supposedly the phone will be manufactured by HTC (they make the Dash, among others), which will have more than one million Google Phones (GPhones?) by the end of the year. This news comes to us by way of DigiTimes, the Taiwanese tech-oriented newspaper that often gets… Read More

  • T-Mobile Replacing MDA With Wing (Possibly)

    Most likely due to the fact that no one cared about the device, T-Mobile has started to do away with the MDA. As a replacement, the T-Mobile Wing (aka HTC P4350) will take over full-QWERTY/PDA duties, featuring the brand spankin’ new Windows Mobile 6.0. MyMobile911 reports that the device will have a spring-loaded sliding keypad, the same screen at the Cingular 8525, and a blue… Read More

  • HTC Goes CDMA, GSM Not SOL, We P&L, From CTIA

    One thing the GSM camp in America has always had over the CDMA camp was smartphones: there were simply more of them. This was largely due to one manufacturer, HTC, who’s Windows Mobile-base smartphones were rebadged concurrently by both T-Mobile and Cingular (now the new AT&T *insert jingle*). But things change, CDMA friends. If you’re on Verizon or Sprint (poor thing) then… Read More

  • HTC Shift: Vista In Your Pants

    HTC Shift: Vista In Your Pants


    Didn’t get a good shot of this UMPC under glass but it was quite small and promising. I’ve pretty much given up on UMPCs as a mainstream set of devices, but bless HTC for making a go of it again. This wee one has wireless, a 7-inch touchscreen, and supports WAN like UMTS and GSM. We’ll grabs some better photos when they take it out of its cryogenic case. Read More

  • Guy Goes Off On T-Mobile Dash

    A while back I received a T-Mobile/HTC Dash to play with and truth be told, it wasn’t too exciting. Windows Mobile is just a crappy OS and until it’s redone completely or undergoes a major overhaul, I really don’t plan on using it…or an HTC phone I suppose. Anyways, this 9-minute long video stars The fat Phat Guy going off on a rant about the Dash. Surprisingly though… Read More

  • HTC Erato Specs Leaked

    It’s been about 7 months since the debut of the Cingular 3125 and leaked reports are telling us the “Star Trek” will have a successor as early as next month. The HTC Erato/s420 clamshell runs WinMo 6.0 and will be a welcome addition to the AT&T (maybe) 3G lineup via HSDPA. The CPU has been bumped up from the previous 200MHz on the 3125 to 400MHz. The Erato also features… Read More

  • HTC Hints at Merger with Sony-Ericsson; We Call BS

    While our Swedish is quite rusty, we live in the future, which means web-based translators are readily available. From what we can tell, Peter Chou, CEO of faves HTC, said in an interview that he thinks a merger between HTC and Sony-Ericsson would be a good fit. Also, he says OJ killed Anna Nicole, but that could just be a metaphor. Why? The benefits are obvious: HTC does a very good job… Read More

  • HTC Debuts Three Windows Mobile Smartphones, Expands Range

    HTC keeps cranking out smartphones faster than we can write about them, and today is no different, as there are three new Windows Mobile 5-powered devices on their way from HTC this quarter. The three devices are all quite different, as the OEM differentiates its product matrix. To the left of the photograph above is the S710, a relative of the TyTN, with not just a slide-out QWERTY keypad… Read More

  • Athena Gets Priced And Grows A Cup Size


    T-Mo has confirmed shipment of the Athena or Ameo as it’s being dubbed to the UK and Germany. The Deutschland can get theirs for 500 Euro in March. No word on price or release date in the UK but expect price and shipment to be around the same for the Brits. Where does that leave us? Rumor has it we’ll be seeing it stateside with Cingular and not T-mo! WTF?! According to some… 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. Aside from having a crazy design to begin with (it’s sweet nonetheless), the Ameo will feature Windows Mobile, a stunning 5-inch VGA touchscreen, 8GB of hard disk space for all your porn media, quadband GSM, HSDPA, GPS, a… Read More
