• XpPhone is a giant phone that runs XP or a small computer that makes phone calls

    The idea that this “phone” runs Windows XP is kind of a stretch, yet it’s being called the XpPhone. It’s pretty much a UMPC or MID, though, that happens to make phone calls because, man oh man, would you need some billowy Hammer Pants to carry this thing around in your pocket as your primary phone. Add to that the five hour battery life and a weight that I can only… Read More

  • Review: Motorola Stature i9

    Nextel phones are notoriously ugly. The company has never worried much about the appearance of their phones, since they were mainly intended for the construction site. They were instead more concerned about a phone that was almost mil-spec in its toughness. The good news (at least for Nextel subscribers) is that they are starting to move away from this brick phone style design, and more towards… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson: We're totes OK, don't bother us

    Ericsson, phone-switch-maker to the stars, has “no plans to abandon its joint venture Sony Ericsson” said an Ericsson spokesperson, thereby ensuring that shiz is going to hit the fan sooner than later. As we pointed out before, S-E isn’t doing too hot and they just lost their North American President, Najmi Jarwala, who was probably ousted for not selling Sony Ericsson phones… Read More

  • In times of crisis, watchmaker Ulysse Nardin gets drunk, hooks up with UK cellphone OEM

    I saw this last night and in my evening haze I though I might have been hallucinating. Sadly, I wasn’t. Ulysse Nardin makes nice watches, mostly designing for yachting and diving, and they have a certain style that I particularly like. However, some douche convinced them to make a phone with a little automatic movement weight attached. Apparently this movement will actually… Read More

  • Woman finds cell phone in bag of chips

    A Wisconsin woman opened a bag of Clancy’s Ripple Potato Chips and found a super old Nokia cell phone inside. Ewww! Who uses a Nokia that old?! I mean, ewww, a cell phone in a bag of chips! The phone apparently wouldn’t turn on but it had a T-Mobile SIM inside “and a discolored circle on the back, as if it was once connected to a belt clip.” Read More

  • Bluetooth rotary phone for old school ringing, time-consuming dialing

    Remember when people used to memorize phone numbers? How many of the phone numbers of the contacts in your cell phone do you know by heart? I know my wife’s and both my parents — that’s it. Assuming I’d want to get in the way-back machine and go to a simpler time, this Bluetooth-equipped rotary phone might do the trick quite nicely. Read More

  • Acer parties like it's 2003 with new DX650, X960 smartphones

    Somewhere in the heart of Mount Fuji, Acer’s crack team of designers are listening to Hail to the Thief and pounding back Zima because they have finally gotten the world’s attention. You see, Acer’s smartphone division has been completely forgotten within the company – someone tasked them with creating a touchscreen phone back in 2003 or so and then forgot to let them… Read More

  • 85% of people: "Them phones is too hard to use!"

    A recent poll of 4000 people (which is probably enough) found that a majority of them felt that mobile phones these days are too hard to set up and too hard to use. I can see that, however I think the iPhone and G1 are doing things right. Even as someone immersed in tech 24/7, I was afraid to explore the capabilities of my old phones on Verizon. Read More

  • Pharos Traveler 137: What the Garmin GPS phone should have been

    I’m totes down with the Traveler 137, the latest GPS phone from Pharos. I’ve used their GPS devices for years now and this one looks like a worthy addition to the pack. Sadly, it’s a bit pricey: $599.95. It’s completely unlocked, though and runs on any GSM network. Read More

    The Nokia E63 has surfaced on for a pre-order price of $499, unlocked. You’ll remember the E63 as the tie-loosened, top-button-unbuttoned little brother to the more polished, business-oriented Nokia E71. Read More

  • Behold the world’s thinnest QWERTY phone

    German company Neoi has apparently developed the world’s thinnest QWERTY phone. That’s bold! Know what’s even more bold? A company inserting its name into Einstein’s mass-energy equivalence formula as a marketing ploy (see upper right hand corner of the above photo). That, my friends, takes some brass ones. This better be one amazing phone, a phone the likes of… Read More

  • Zune phone coming at CES keynote?

    Once upon a time, Zune phone rumors were as thick on the ground as Autumn leaves. But as the inevitable nothing happened, they died down and were replaced by the more interesting Windows 7 rumblings. But now Microsoft is in pole position to announce something like a Zune phone, having pretty much let the whole 7 cat out of the bag and lacking any really compelling major product developments… Read More
