    Uh-oh. Better look out, HTC. Looks like Sense isn’t the only gorgeous Android overhaul on the block anymore.

  • Think the HTC Hero is coming T-Mobile?

    Don’t count on it. Earlier today at the T-Mobile myTouch 3G event in NYC, T-Mobile’s CTO Cole Brodman flat out said that T-Mobile USA has no plans to bring the Hero stateside. *sad clown* Did you think that it was coming to a GSM carrier because of that FCC filing? We’ve heard it’s going to Sprint, so who really knows. However, Brodman did say that T-Mobile will be… Read More

  • Amazon Makes The Ridiculous Kindle 2 Price Slightly Less Ridiculous

    It looks like Amazon had dropped the price of the latest generation Kindle 2, the 6 inch reading wireless reading device from $359 to $299. I’m actually kicking myself right now because I just purchased the same one for the higher price a few days ago. It’s unclear why Amazon dropped the price. Sales don’t seem to be a problem, as it appeared sales for the latest… Read More

  • T-Mobile goes bonkers with the myTouch accessories

    Ohhhh – so thats why T-Mobile ignored all of the good names, instead opting to call their HTC Magic the “myTouch“: because they’re working the customizability angle.

    Who hasn’t been at a sporting event and wished for one of those T-shirt cannons? Nike is “selling” the Nike T-shirt Gun seen in the above video for just $1500. I put “selling” in quotes because it doesn’t seem legit. It’s one of those “internet jokes” that you may have read about in USA Today. Read More

  • LG GC990 "Louvre" revealed, said to be just a "concept"

    What’s this about a 12-megapixel, HD video recording cell phone unveiled in Warsaw? If you’re to believe LG, then the GC990 Louvre is merely a concept at this point. Under the hood of said concept is a 12-megapixel camera with Schneider-Kreuznach optics, xenon flash, and auto/touch focus. But the big reveal is the ability to record 720p video at 30fps.
