  • 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

  • Samsung's PIP, 3D mobile phone

    When I first posted about the B710 there wasn’t a whole lot about it that made me think it was worth mentioning other than a quick blurb. I mean, sure, the PIP is cool, but I didn’t think it was THAT cool. After seeing it in person yesterday (and unknowingly a few days before since it’s my Uncle’s phone), I’ve certainly changed my mind. The ability to watch a… Read More

  • Hands on with the Samsung i550

    The Samsung i550 is the first GPS-enabled device from the Korean giant and it’s a great start. The quad band HSDPA/UMTS/EDGE S60 device features a 3.2-megapixel camera (AF w/ image & video editor), 150MB of internal memory, charging via microUSB, 2.6-inch screen, 128MB of RAM, dedicated hot keys, and a trackball ala Sidekick/BlackBerry. Something is going on with Google on this one… Read More

  • Hands on with the Samsung i450

    Remember when I said I had my eye on the i450? Yeah, well, my mind hasn’t changed one bit. See the red scroll-wheel dealie on the left side? It doesn’t move, rather, it’s a touch sensitive ridge. When you get where you want to go (if you wanted to see all the artists or albums), you simply press down in the center of the arc and it jumps to that particular screen. The OS… Read More

  • Hands on with the B&O, Samsung Serenata

    Here we have the lovechild of Samsung and Bang & Olufsen. It’s a quirky looking phone that most would think is upside down. We typically see scroll-wheels set at the bottom of the handset rather than the top. Sound quality on the Serenata is superb. It definitely improves on the Serene. The UI is all done from the scroll-wheel or on the touch screen, which is limited to firing up… Read More

  • Motorola officially announces the PEBL 2 U9

    In case you were wondering, Motorola has officially unveiled the PEBL-like U9 clamshell with CrystalTalk technology (noise reduction), stereo Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel camera with 8x zoom, microSD with 25MB of internal storage, external touch sensitive music controls and animated screensavers on the external display that float. The quadband GSM/EDGE phone is music-centric, which is the… Read More

  • BlackBerry Pearl 8130 coming to Sprint next month

    The baby BlackBerry, the Pearl, was already announced for Verizon last week and now it’s creeping into bed with Sprint. The CDMA 8130 brings it with built-in GPS that complements Sprint’s 3D maps over the Navigation service as well as voice-guided driving directions. You also get the music store, live TV or VOD and OnDemand services that bring you the latest news, sports and weather… Read More

  • AT&T rolls out Samsung a517

    Stop the presses! AT&T has unveiled the Samsung SGH-a517 and it’s only $49.99 with the usual two-year contract. Is it wicked exciting? Probably not. It seems like your average flip phone. ::shrug:: I didn’t think we needed another one. Does this look any different from the others? Read More

  • Samsung i617 outed as Blackjack II

    The highly anticipated Blackjack II has been unveiled and it’s the Samsung i617. A lot of details are still hidden somewhere, but we do know that it’s running WinMo 6, the camera has been bumped up to 2-megapixels and HSDPA ensures wicked fast data transfer, which means AT&T is all but assured as the carrier. That’s not much of a surprise considering the original… Read More

  • T-Mobile Samsung Beat review, can you do better?

    What can be said about the Samsung Beat that I didn’t already cover? It’s a tiny music-centric phone (aren’t all phones music-centric these days unless it’s a smart phone?) and as far as those go these days it’s not bad. Heck, you even get a 1GB microSD card. I like that you can keep the music player in the background and still access the music functions while not… 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

  • T-Mobile Samsung Beat, first hands-on

    Today marks the official unveiling of the Samsung Beat (SGH-t539) on the T-mobile network. The Beat is a pint-sized flip phone dressed in a black shell with a silver keypad and lime green accents. The latest T-mo handset has dedicated external music controls, a stereo speaker, stereo Bluetooth and comes packed with a 1GB microSD card that’s pre-loaded with two tracks from Anisha Nicole… Read More

  • Palm Centro groped on video

    If someone says something feels good in their hands one more time, I swear my head is going to explode. Here’s a decent video walk through of the Centro’s interface. I guess it’s not that exciting, which is probably why I skipped the unveiling at Digital Life. Maybe your mom will like it. Read More

  • 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

  • Four mystery phones appear on Verizon's Website [UPDATE]

    It’s common knowledge round these parts that Verizon probably has the best coverage, but their devices have been so-so. Oh, who am I kidding? The phones available on that network are about as atrocious as their customer service and rate plans. But their device lineup is certainly shaping up to take on the likes of T-Mobile. Well, actually, every major service provider is getting a… Read More

  • InfoBar 2 Announced For Japan

    Mobile phones are my thing. It’s typically the only thing I really lust over and I’m not a fan of the iPhone. I actually think it sucks donkey dong, but whatever. The AU Infobar 2 is the oddest thing I’ve seen, but it’s so weird that I want one. The candybar has a 2.6-inch OLED screen, built-in One-Seg DMB tuner, a 2-megapixel camera with auto-focus, GPS, stereo… Read More

  • T-Mo Unveils The Sidekick LX

    As a Sidekick fanboy, I’ve been diligently waiting for Sharp/Danger to produce a Sidekick that doesn’t make me regret switching from the SK2 to SK3. I’ve seen the Sidekick LX and it’s the best incarnation I’ve seen. Not only is it thinner than its predecessors, but the screen is much larger and brighter thanks to Sharp’s AQUOS LCD. The camera remains the same… Read More

  • Samsung Armani Phone Hands-on

    The Samsung Armani phone was officially unveiled yesterday in Milan and specs seem to be the same except for the haptic touch screen, which is a nice addition. Although, I’m not entirely surprised since the F700, which was announced earlier in the year has VibeTonz as well as other Samsung handsets. We’ll also be seeing the collaboration go further with an LCD TV that is set to… Read More
