  • Nokia announces a 16GB X6, "Comes With Music" not included

    We knew Nokia was preppin’ something for launch today, thanks to some loose lipped execs – but what would it be?

Looks like… Read More

    Some crazy programmers have overclocked the Droid to 1.1GHz, making it faster than the Nexus one. The Droid usually runs at about 600MHz so bumping it up to 1.1 was fairly dangerous.

  • Appcelerator: Over 90% of Developers are "Very Interested" in Building Tablet Apps

    Talk of the Apple Tablet is in full swing as the wide world of web is in a frenzy over the upcoming Apple event tomorrow.

  • Reminder: Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus now available from Verizon

  • Leaked: HTC Bravo looks like a Nexus One with more Sense

    Considering that the much heralded Nexus One is being sold as a pure Android experience by Google themselves, it wasn’t at all surprising to see that it didn’t sport HTC’s oh-so-awesome Android interface overhaul, Sense. Surprising? No. Disappointing? A bit. The 2.1 build of Android that the Nexus One runs is pretty dang solid – but in the end, we’re still longing… Read More

  • Motorola MOTOSPLIT makes the Backflip look normal

    Motorola’s by no means a stranger to phones with wonky form factors. I mean, just look at the Moto Backflip – the keyboard! It’s on the back! What is this, the future? It gets crazier, friends. Read More

    Flurry, a mobile app analytics company, has noticed approximately 50 devices in the Cupertino that match the characteristics of Apple’s tablet device. Flurry claims to have reliably placed these devices on Apple’s Cupertino campus, and are confident that they are “observing a group of pre-release tablets in testing.” This make sense – as the Apple Tablet has to… Read More
