  • Android "Cupcake" build to bring YouTube Favorites to the home screen

    As work on the Android “Cupcake” build (Firmware 1.5) continues, the developers continue to slip more little features in under the radar. We were spending a few minutes with the just announced HTC Magic last night, and we noticed one bit in the live folders screen we hadn’t seen before: YouTube Favorites. Live folders are a new addition to Cupcake which allow you to add… Read More

  • Lens-on with the Vodafone HTC Magic [UPDATED]

    It wasn’t quite final hardware (the face buttons are slightly different – a bit larger and round) and we weren’t allowed to touch the thing, but we just got back from spending a bit of time with the second-ever Android phone to make its way into a carrier’s line up. The HTC Magic, essentially a polished up and physical keyboard-less G1, totes a 3.2 megapixel camera… Read More

  • 2012: Year of the Universal Mobile Charger?!

    Earlier today, the GSMA announced that it has successfully brokered a deal with leading handset manufacturers and network operators to standardize mobile chargers by 2012 (for most, but not all cellular phones). The primary goal of this new agreement is to cut down on the environmental impact created by trashing old chargers. According to the AP: The GSMA calculates a reduction in… Read More

  • Hands on: Samsung OmniaHD

    Oh Samsung OmniaHD, how lovely your 3.7″ AMOLED touchscreen is. Really – it’s friggin’ gorgeous. Be it the 8 megapixel camera, the 720p video recording, or the deafeningly loud stereo speakers, we love just about everything about it from a hardware standpoint – but we’re not too sure about the software. We got to put our mitts all up on the Samsung OmniaHD… Read More

  • Vodafone and HTC announce the Android-powered Magic

    We were just starting to worry that Mobile World Congress 2009 would go without pass by without an Android press announcement, but Vodafone and HTC have swooped in to save they day. They just announced the HTC Magic, a full touchscreen Android device which bears quite the resemblance to the HTC G1 – except with a bit more polish, and without a keyboard. It’s also a perfect match… Read More

  • Live Blog: Vodafone press conference, HTC Magic announced

    We’re live at the relatively low key Vodafone press conference at Mobile World Congress, where they’re apparently announcing the Android-powered HTC G2 – otherwise known as the HTC Magic (Update: They specifically said that this is not being referred to as the G2. Looks like the G-numbering is a T-mo-only thing.) Read More

  • Hands-on: Novatel MiFi 2352 Hotspot for Telefónica

    We first saw the MiFi 2352 Mobile Hotspot’s CDMA brother back at CES; we loved it then, and we love it just as much in its GSM form. Novatel announced yesterday that Telefónica would be the first carrier to launch the MiFi sometime during this quarter, so we figured we’d stop by their suite to give it a spin. Read More

  • Nokia to preload Skype onto handsets beginning in Q3

    In a fairly huge win for VoIP fans everywhere, Skype and Nokia have just announced a partnership to preload Skype onto handsets beginning later this year. But they’re not just throwing the app onto the devices and calling it a day – the integration will run at least contact list deep. Once you’ve tied Skype contacts to their relative contacts in your address book, their… Read More

  • TI DLP outs 2nd gen Pico chipset

    DLP’s first Pico projector phone, Samsung Show aka W7900, is shipping this month in Korea, but DLP just revealed the second generation chipset today at MWC. Read More

  • Acer busts out its whole new "Tempo" smartphone line


    Last week we saw a couple phones drop from Acer, namely the DX650 (which is weird) and the X960 (which is generic). Well, they’ve expanded the lineup and now they’ve got a few more phones ready to hit the market. They all run WinMo 6.1 and with a little luck and legwork we’ll have hands-on with all of them soon.

  • Windows Mobile 6.5 announced, Marketplace included

    Microsoft just took the wraps off of the latest WinMo release. Just like the dozens of leaked screenshots indicated, the OS has a totally revamped feel with a Zune-inspired user interface. The Marketplace and MyPhone are included too although details are a bit light at the moment. There isn’t any word about about paid apps or who will host the contents, although we expect those… Read More

  • Oops! Nokia leaks their own phone in their own press materials

    We hear about loose-lipped employees leaking stuff all the time around these parts. Less frequently, but still pretty often, companies that have partnered together on a project will unintentionally leak the related products prior to announcement. Least common of all, however, is the treasured occasion in which a company leaks their own product. Such is the case with the 8-megapixel Nokia… Read More

  • GSM Palm Pre spotted at MWC09

     Will you look at that. Read More

  • The Samsung OmniaHD, BeatDJ, and BeatDisc get a MWC09 unveiling


    Samsung unleashed a three great looking phones at MWC09. Still no Android, but we’ll get over it. Pics and specs after the jump. Read More

  • Expect 2-3 Android handsets from Huawei this year

    Huawei has big plans for 2009. The OEM handset maker plans to launch two to three different Android phones and maybe even a Symbian and LiMo handset all this year. Even with the global economic doom and gloom? Wowzers! Read More

  • Shots of Huawei's iPhone-tastic "uPhone" Android phone

    This can’t end well. We stopped by Huawei’s MWC09 booth to ask about their previously discussed Android phone and were presented with what you see here. Now, we’re not ones to yell “iPHONE CLONE!!!!” at every phone with a touchscreen – but come on, seriously? It wasn’t powered up, they weren’t letting people touch it, and details were as sparse… Read More

  • HTC beefs up the Touch line with the Diamond2, Pro2

    As much as we wanted HTC to announce the G2 at MWC, we knew it would be too much to ask. But if you’re into Windows Mobile (6.1) or, more importantly, TouchFlo 3D then you’re in luck. It looks like HTC took a page from Palm’s playbook on these updated Touch devices, but more on that later. The Diamond2 (4.25 X 2.09 X 0.54 inches) features a 3.2-inch WVGA touchscreen with a… Read More

  • Nokia makes the E75 official

    It was just about undeniable at this point, but Nokia has officially announced the E75. It will be available in March at the unsubsidized price of 375 euros (roughly $483 USD), with pre-orders beginning today. Nokia has yet to release the full specs, but the previously leaked (and most likely accurate) specs are as followed: Read More
