    The Cliq XT/Quench drops, brings Android 1.5 in tow

    Motorola is keeping the Android party rocking with the Cliq XT — or Quench in Euroland. The handset doesn’t bring anything we haven’t seen before including the aging Android 1.5 release along with Motorola’s social media-centric MOTOBLUR home screen replacement. A respectable 3.1-inch 320 x 480 occupies the front, while a 5.0 MP cam with LED flash is housed on the backside. Read More

    First Impressions: Windows Mobile 7, now known as Windows Phone

I’ll have a bunch more to say about it once I’ve spent some time with it in a setting that allows for video/photography – but in the mean time, read on for my… Read More

    Microsoft announces Windows Mobile 7, now officially dubbed "Windows Phone"

    We’re in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress, where Microsoft has at long last pulled back the curtains on the next generation of Windows Mobile. Don’t go calling it “Windows Mobile 7″, though – at least not around Microsoft’s folks, who have officially changed the name of the platform to “Windows Phone”. Read More

  • Windows Mobile 7 (Windows Phone) User Interface leaks a few hours early

    Windows Mobile 7 (Windows Phone) User Interface leaks a few hours early

    We've gotta give it to Microsoft: considering that they've been working on Windows Mobile 7 for at least a year or two, the fact that they've kept its user interface completely under wraps until a few hours before it's expected to be officially announced is ridiculously impressive. Alas, a leak was bound to happen at some point, even if it is at the very last minute. Read More

    Sony Ericsson keeps 'em coming with Xperia X10 mini and X10 mini pro

    More Android handsets are on the way from Sony Ericsson as the handset manufacturer just announced smaller versions of the Xperia X10: the X10 mini and X10 mini pro. Clever names, right? These handsets are quite sexy, if I say so myself, and the pro version has the nice addition of a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

    Verizon Wireless and Skype slated for a duet at MWC

    I'll admit that I love me some Skype. I get to call and video chat with all my buddies from overseas without hefty fees, except I was accustomed to doing it only where Wi-Fi was available. While AT&T and Apple have made some recent policy changes to allow VoIP over 3G, it looks like Verizon and Skype are partnering up do to a little of the same. Read More
