    Mad probz and other shizz are surfacing with this piece of hardware, my nizzle It has come to Boy Genius’ attention — and, in fact, Mr. Peter Ha’s as well — that the Sidekick Slide by Motorola is causing mad probz and is shutting down at inopportune times including during calls to your shortie and while messaging your peeps. While the Sidekick Slide might be mad hot… Read More

  • gPhone Madness: The creepiest entry to date


    The gPhone madness contest is still going strong. Remember to vote early and often for your favorite entrants and that we also count comments in the judging. Rich sends us his entry, a really freaking creepy idea involving social data mining and facial recognition. The Playa’s Bible web service is linked to Open Social for data mining, The guy takes a picture of a young lady in a local… Read More

  • Gphone madness: contest entries keep rolling in

    Here’s the deal: in order to celebrate the non-release of the gPhone, we’re asking you, our dear readers, to offer up some potential applications for the Android platform. They can be silly, smart, or stupid. Take this one, for example: Here’s an idea for an open source Gphone application that could make you a little cash: Turn your cell phone into a traffic camera. As you… Read More

  • Sidekick Slide review [Update]

    Many of you may recall my recent rants about the Sidekick 3 and how much it sucked ass. I mean, seriously, I paid over $400 for the biggest POS known to man. Danger makes a phenomenal OS and Sharp and T-Mo go and screw it all up. The hardware was atrocious and that’s putting it lightly. The phone was horrible. Everyone complained of echoing and I could never hear what they were saying. Read More

  • CG ALERT: And we're off… Motorola, T-Mo, HTC, and Qualcomm gPhone conference call today

    I’ll just quote this verbatim and I’ll be live blogging the call in a mere 30 minutes. I may have to eat my hat. GOOGLE, T-MOBILE, HTC, QUALCOMM AND MOTOROLA TO DISCUSS NEW OPEN PLATFORM FOR MOBILE DEVICES Read More

  • Bluetooth visor gizmo does calls, outputs to car stereo

    This is an interesting device and, as fate may have it, a device I’ve been waiting on for quite some time now. It’s basically a Bluetooth speakerphone that clips to your visor and outputs sound to your car’s stereo. You can use it for calls but, even better, you can use it for audio. So if your phone or MP3 player does Bluetooth, you can stream your tunes directly to your… Read More

  • Hands on with the Motorola RAZR 2 Luxury Edition

    I won’t lie. This phone is hot. I want it. I must have it. The babes will flock rather than run like they normally do. Yes, I know I cracked jokes about the Luxury Edition earlier, but it’s such a sexy piece of hardware. The faux snake skin isn’t half bad and the diamond-cut plating is well done. I really, really want it and it sort of makes me sick to my stomach. Read More

  • Hands on with the Sidekick Slide

    I’ve really got to lay off the crack before taking photos. Here she is, the latest Sidekick (IMO the best) from Motorola and I can’t wait to get my hands on it later. Read More

  • Re: Giant genitals on Motorola phones

    Remember that nice, big dick on the clock on the screen of those Motorola phones? It’s now Moto’s Loch Ness Monster: despite evidence, it doesn’t exist. BGR, who brought us the story, got a quote from Moto saying it was just unfortunate shading, and if someone’s offended, they can just disable the analog-style clock. It’s a bit of a mia culpa for sure, there was… Read More

  • XXX Image on Motorola Phones?

    We’re not jumping to conclusions here, but it sure as hell looks like there’s a great big dick on the analog phone on newer Motos. It might have been snuck in by some trickster in the UI department, or it might just be a random coincidence. We’ll let you view the clock yourself and be the judge. The best part? The positioning of the word “Tools”. Ha! Motorola… Read More

  • Motorola's fake batch of phones

    Remember these leaked phones from Motorola? Yeah, they’re all fake. Figures, considering they’re all equally as blurry. The only one of the phones that’s real, rather, some what real is the mashup with Kodak, but when I contacted Kodak they said they’d get back to me. Looks like Moto was just trying to hype up their new line of phones for next year, whatever they… Read More

  • RAZR2 gets a touch of class or trash?

    Not a whole lot that’s new here on the RAZR2 V8, but it does come ensconced in a fancy new outfit like the original RAZR did with Dolce and Gabbana. The Luxury edition comes with 18k and 24k gold plated accents on a shiny, metallic black casing with pin stripes on the CLI lens. The sidebands include an engraved diamond-cut pattern and linear etchings on the nav wheel. The back is supple… Read More

  • Motorola officially announces the PEBL 2 U9

    In case you were wondering, Motorola has officially unveiled the PEBL-like U9 clamshell with CrystalTalk technology (noise reduction), stereo Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel camera with 8x zoom, microSD with 25MB of internal storage, external touch sensitive music controls and animated screensavers on the external display that float. The quadband GSM/EDGE phone is music-centric, which is the… Read More

  • Motorola's latest devices revealed in all their blurred glory

    I wouldn’t exactly say that Motorola ‘leaked’ these four new devices during a presentation in Amsterdam because…well…how the hell do you accidentally leak four devices? It’s not like they fell out of your bag and every douchemonger there snapped pics of it. If it’s in your presentation then they weren’t leaked. Some people are just morons. *Looks… Read More

  • Motorola RAZR 2 V9m Quick Look

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf A quick look at Sprint’s new RAZR 2 V9m. Full review to follow. Cool little phone — not quite Zander’s folly but it’s no iPhone. Read More

  • Motorola Q 9m Review


    Motorola is in a bad way. Wilson over at Giz basically tore them a new orifice over the Q 9m and I have always thought they’ve squandered the RAZR good-will on a series of odd products that were either violently crippled or ahead of their time — like the Moto PEBL, for example. That said, they’ve remained in high in the pantheon of phone gods that I have in my heads, up… Read More

  • Verizon's Motorola Q 9m: First Look


    They’re doing it again. After years of disappointing phones, I can honestly say that I’m excited about the Moto Q 9m. This phone, aimed at the youth market, is primarily a music phone and takes advantage of Verizon’s V Cast music service (*cough $1.99 for tracks cough* WTF? *ahem*) in a package that is far removed from the original Q.
