    Get on your party hats: GSM Palm Pre hitting O2 and Movistar

    We're all quite excited here to find out that O2 and Movistar will get the Palm Pre in GSM form, opening the phone up to unlocking, hacking, and all sorts of molestation.

That's right: by the time Palm pinches off the GSM Pre Apple will have probably released iPod Touches with cameras… Read More

    iPhone 3G: AT&T cares about you, Apple couldn't care less

    I like to pound on AT&T when given the chance, but I can’t justifiably rag them over iPocalypse. Apple dropped the ball when the iTunes servers crashed from everyone and their mother trying to update their first gen and/or activate the 3G model. They didn’t even bother sending out a release over the matter, which is sort of a PR no-no, IMO. But what else is new these days? Walt… Read More

    3G iPhone to be thinner, subsidized in the UK

    Rather than bombarding you folks with two successive 3G iPhone rumor posts, I’ll do so in one so as not to piss off the iPhone haters. First, Leander Kahney at Cult of Mac has a hot tip that the new iPhone will include the following: 3G GPS 2 x memory (16GB and 32GB) 22 percent thinner Better battery life We’ve already suspected all of the above to be true except the 22 percent thinner… Read More
