  • Pantech gets official with the Matrix Pro for AT&T

    You’ve seen this form factor on many occasions from Pantech with the Helio Ocean being the most notable of the bunch and probably the best. I’m a fan of Matrix, but haven’t actually touched it myself, yet. The Duo was an utter failure and POS, but the Matrix Pro looks like a champ. It’s a full-fledged Windows Mobile 6.1 device with the familiar dual keyboard slide… Read More

  • Lens-on with the Vodafone HTC Magic [UPDATED]

    It wasn’t quite final hardware (the face buttons are slightly different – a bit larger and round) and we weren’t allowed to touch the thing, but we just got back from spending a bit of time with the second-ever Android phone to make its way into a carrier’s line up. The HTC Magic, essentially a polished up and physical keyboard-less G1, totes a 3.2 megapixel camera… Read More

  • Did Hulu Just Pull The Plug On Its Deal With TV.com?

    Something is up at TV.com, the CBS-owned site that recently relaunched as a competitor to Hulu.
