    INQ to give the world a Twitter-Phone

    No need for q-tips, you heard it right: INQ Mobile will soon announce a phone with exclusive twitter-connectivity just in time for the holiday season. INQ, the makers of the Skype Phone, plan to really open up the twitter flood-gates, 140 characters at a time, using a mobile internet connection versus Twitter’s own SMS service. Seeing the Twitter boom, INQ plans to manufacture an inexpensive… Read More

    Bing brings mobile service to life, almost

    It feels like just yesterday that Microsoft had blessed the internet with its new search engine, Bing, and today we mobile addicts have access to this service on our phones. If you head over to m.bing.com on your handheld, you’ll find yourself on a lite version of this Bing’s titan service. So does this compete with the Google’s mobile service? Not just yet, and it seems that… Read More

    ShirtsMyWay.com: Shirts your way

    You guys didn’t think I’d go to China and forget to bring you back something, did you? Sillies. My last day in Shanghai I met with Peter Crawfurd and Michael Yang the baby-faced founders of ShirtsMyWay.com. (Pictured here.) ShirtsMyWay allows you to customize a men’s dress shirt with trillions of possible combinations of details, from the material on the collar to the stitching around the… Read More

  • Android Review:  Handmark's Express News. Verdict: Doesn't suck.

    Android Review: Handmark's Express News. Verdict: Doesn't suck.

    Bombarded with dozens of news sources and code-heavy web sites, mobile news browsing seems to be a daunting task at best. Even on Wi-Fi, some of the most powerful mobile phones take their sweet time rendering. Searching for a solid application that can handle aggregation of popular and trusted news sources can be just as tedious as actually reading news on a mobile phone. Tedium, however, may… Read More

    Boost Mobile opening 50 new stores by 2010

    Boost Mobile, the refreshed and rambunctious pre-paid arm of Sprint-Nextel, has some news that may shock some people: Even with the economy teetering, Boost hasn’t folded it’s hand. Turns out, they may be sitting with a full house. They’re doing well, well enough to be expanding on a solid scale with 50 exclusive stores nationwide.

    Can't wait for iHulu? NBC mobile has got you (partially) covered

    I don’t know about you, but the novelty of watching random YouTube crap videos on my iDevice wore off pretty quickly. And with iHulu (a.k.a. an official Hulu app) nowhere to be found, there aren’t too many other quality alternatives for viewing free content on your iPhone or iPod touch…until now. CNET points out that NBC’s mobile site – m.nbc.com – provides… Read More

    G1v2 spoilers: it's a Moto! Wait, no, it's not

    Remember that picture of the G1v2 we saw last week? We were puzzled at the bottom row buttons, and a commenter at BGR figured out the riddle. It turns out those are Motorola-style buttons (see them here and here?), not HTC. I thought the keyboard looked HTC-ish, but hey, we all make mistakes right? In any case, the phone pictured appears to be a Motorola phone running Android, although nothing can… Read More

  • TimesReader 2.0: Is it time to stop killing trees?

    TimesReader 2.0: Is it time to stop killing trees?

    There are two interesting things about the new New York Times Reader application. First, the company has abandoned SilverLight for Adobe Air, thereby ensuring cross-platform compatibility without that nasty Microsoft aftertaste. Second, the application is great. Full disclosure: I'm a regular contributor to the NYT but I'm not employed by them full-time and act as a freelancer. But I still read… Read More
