  • Palm expands developer circle, announces emulator for old apps

    Palm has made its webOS “Mojo” SDK more widely available, after releasing it some time ago to a select group of developers. You might want to check your email if you didn’t make the first cut.

  • CTIA09: Hands-on with the Motorola Evoke QA4, with video

    Long time MobileCrunch readers may know that I have a bit of an aversion to Motorola. They’ve never done anything wrong to me, personally – it’s just that every handset they’ve released in the past 4 years is a mundane, haphazard piece of garbage. However, I’m glad (though a bit reluctant) to say that they’ve strayed from this path with the Evoke QA4; it has… Read More

  • Palm Opens Early Access Program For Pre SDK

    Today at the Web 2.0 Expo Keynote, Palm’s Michael Abbott has taken the stage to walk the audience through some of the principles driving Palm’s webOS platform, which will drive its upcoming Pre phone, which CrunchGear first revealed back in January.

  • Is Office Finally Coming To The iPhone?

    I’m here at the Web 2.0 Expo keynote, where Stephen Elop, President of Microsoft Business Division, hinted that we may be seeing Microsoft Office make its way to the iPhone some time soon. After his interviewer Tim O’Reilly caught him on the comment, Elop backtracked a bit, stating “not yet, keep watching”. But it’s clear that an iPhone version of Office is on… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Free ham with $150 purchase at Office Depot (not a joke)

    <img style="display: inline" title="Capture" alt="Capture" src="http://old.crunchgear.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/capture.jpg&quot; width="754" height="177" I thought this was absolutely an April Fools’ Day joke, but you can actually get a free ham if you drop more than $150 at Office Depot.

  • Adrollo Launches Dynamic Ad Network Platform For The iPhone

    Since Apple’s App Store launched last July, a number of ad networks have emerged that allow iPhone developers to place advertising in their apps so that they can generate revenue, even when an application was initially sold for free. But as the number of ad networks available has increased, developers are being faced with a new problem: once they’ve deployed an application with… Read More

  • CTIA09: Hands-on gallery of the AT&T Nokia E71x

    Original E71 on left, AT&T E71x on right It seems a bit silly to do a full hands-on of the just announced Nokia E71x for AT&T, seeing as it’s essentially identical to the original E71 – which we’ve already given a thorough reviewing. Besides the obvious color difference (Black on black, rather than silver on white), the changes are somewhat trivial: it has Feature Pack… Read More

  • Razer announces new FPS starring Valve's Gabe Newell

  • MySpace Stealth Webmail Product Definitely Happening (Internal Memo)

    In January we wrote about rumors of MySpace launching a webmail product that would compete head on with Gmail, Yahoo Mail, etc. At launch it could be as large as some of the biggest players in the space. The company has been reassigning internal email addresses (employeename@myspace.com) to a new domain name (@myspace-inc.com), which is exactly what Yahoo and others did when launching… Read More

The cable operator threw out some interesting factoids to help measure the magnitude of its milestone.

  • HP's MagCloud turns us all into magazine publishers

    Credit to HP for trying something different. That “something,” as it were, is a new scheme called MagCloud that brings the cost of printing glossy magazines down to 20 cents per page. That works out to $20 per 100-page magazine. Free speech so long as you own a printing press, right? Read More

    ViewSonic might be known for their line of computer monitors, but their HDTVs aren’t too shabby. Today, they released the VT2230, a 1080p 22-inch LCD for $349. With an 8000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1920×1080 native resolution, the VT2230 just might bump my VX2240W out the door. Read More

  • Veoh Lays Off 25 Employees And Shifts Focus Away From Competing With YouTube And Hulu

  • Batman: Arkham Asylum Collector's Edition detailed, again

    About three weeks ago, Gamestop detailed the contents of the Collector’s Edition Batman: Arkham Asylum, but it was quickly pulled down and the mention of a Batarang was forever seared into my memory. Well, today, Gamestop detailed the game again and the Batarang remains. I know $100 is a lot to ask for a game, but it’s a foot long Batarang with a Waynetech Batarang Storage Box! Read More

  • CTIA09: Hands-on with the HTC Snap

    By all major counts, I should hate this phone. I don’t generally like candybar QWERTY phones, and I don’t like Windows Mobile 6.1. But somehow, HTC has brought both of these things together in a way that I really like. The hardware itself is rock solid; it’s well balanced and nicely weighted in the hand, and the 12mm profile looks deadly sharp. Read More
