  • Ding! The White iPhone 4 Shows Up In AT&T's Inventory

    Would-be White iPhone 4 owners, resume your position on the edge of your seat. Following last week’s appearance of a white iPhone 4 in Best Buy’s inventory system, the most mythical handset of the smartphone world (It’s like Big Foot and the Lochness Monster pooled their money to build a phone designed by a Unicorn) has just appeared in yet another database — but this… Read More

  • A Long Hands-On With The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

    I’m totally down with Sony Ericsson trying almost anything to stay relevant in non-niche markets, so the Xperia Arc looks actually exciting and/or good. Sadly, as handsome as it is I doubt there are many who who really want to watch an eleven minute video describing every nuance. However, if you’re that kind of guy, here you are. Read More

  • Launches Will.i.apps With First 360-Degree Music Video For The Black Eyed Peas

    Every major music artist these days seems to have their own iPhone app, but the latest app from the Black Eyed Peas is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. The app (iTunes link, $2.99) lets you follow each band member’s Twitter feed with photos, pose the band members in a 3D photo shoot, and even does an augmented-reality trick (when you point the iPhone camera at the Black… Read More

  • Leaked Verizon Pricing Puts Motorola Xoom Tablet At $800, Thunderbolt At $250

    A bit of the old backend-pricing-screen tipsterism came into Android Central’s inbox earlier today, showing what appears to be an internal pricing guide for a few upcoming devices. The HTC Thunderbolt gets a $250 price, which sounds like what we’d expect for a premium subsidized device. More interesting perhaps is the pricing of Motorola’s Xoom tablet, not too surprising… Read More

  • Blatant IP Theft In App Store Garners Little Response From Apple (Updated)

    One of the criticisms of Apple’s App Store (and application stores in general) is how it is commonplace for a popular app or game to have dozens of clones. These can be sifted through due to their low popularity and shoddy icons, and on the off chance you prefer an ad-supported knock-off over a 99 cent app, they’re a good alternative. But not every clone is flattery and… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Vivaz 2 leaks out in detail

    Sony Ericsson’s Symbian-powered Vivaz looks to be getting an update, with a leak outlining an Android-powered successor. Mobile Review have a very detailed overview of the phone — also known as the MT15i or Halon — including more pics than you can shake a megapixel at. The skinny of it all, though, is the juicy, juicy specs, which I’ve compiled for you after the break. Read More

    According to Moblicity CEO, Dave Dobbin, everyone’s favourite Gingerbread totin’ handset — The Samsung Nexus S — will be released through the company’s AWS brand come March.
