  • ‘Massive’ Windows Phone 7 Update Due In January

    Windows Phone 7 users should circle the entire month of January on their calendar. Word on the street is that an update, to be released that month, will be “MASSIVE.” Yes, we’re talking all caps massive. So massive that it warps space-time itself.

  • Android-powered LG Star pics and details leak

    Do you remember that 4″ beast from LG that we talked about the other week? Well, a member of the Android Forums managed to get his hands on one, and has done a little photo-shoot with it.

  • HTC HD7 Seeing Death Grip Issues?

    It looks like the iPhone 4 isn’t the only phone to suffer from particularly troubling death grip problems. I mean, we all knew it wasn’t the only one, but it had it bad.

Of course, you’ll note that the handsets in these videos aren’t showing strong signal to begin with, and as studies have shown, the death grip causes… Read More

  • AT&T: The Motorola Olympus will launch in December or January. Whoops, we didn't mean to say that.

    Well, look at that! AT&T was nice enough to share on Facebook that their upcoming Tegra2-powered Android monster, the Motorola Olympus, would be launching in either December or January — an especially kind act, given that the Motorola Olympus totally hasn’t been announced yet. The response was pulled from the page almost immediately, presumably after someone got one helluva… Read More

  • HTC Merge Accessories Start Trickling Into Stores

    At this point, there’s not much we don’t know about Verizon’s upcoming Android piece, the HTC Merge.

If you want one, you probably know it by now — and you’re probably waiting on the edge of your… Read More

  • Sprint 4G Goes Live In SF Next Month, LA, Miami, D.C., Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus Today

    Just last week, we were watching as Sprint rather suggestively compared the size of their “pipe” to the size of their competitors “pipe” as part of their prep work for 4G in LA. Today, all that pipe-laying comes to fruition; Sprint 4G has just launched in Los Angeles — and they went ahead and flipped things on in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, Washington D.C… Read More
