AT&T Gobbles Up Plusmo, Boosts Content Creation

by Rob on September 30th, 2009

Plusmo is a company that creates widgets and applications for mobile phones such as iPhone, BlackBerry, Nokia and Android. But now the company will have different allegiances and priorities moving forward – they were just purchased by AT&T. It’ll be interesting to see what AT&T chooses to do with this new equity and whether or […]

Storm 2 Coming October 25th, $599 Unlocked At Best Buy

by Rob on September 30th, 2009

We mashed two important pieces of information together and forgot to tell you a third. The BlackBerry Storm DUMMY units will be arriving on October 25th to Verizon Wireless stores. But that most likely means the real thing will be coming in a day or two before or after. The info comes from a BGR […]

HTC Imagio Pictures Emerge with Equipment Guide

by Rob on September 30th, 2009

Introducing the very first Verizon Smartphone to provide access to VCAST MobileTV! We’ve heard about it before but this is the first time you’re seeing the HTC Imagio in its full flesh. It runs WinMo 6.5, is a full touchscreen phone, has a 5MP camera with autofocus (no flash), 3.6-inch screen with WVGA resolution, 3.5mm […]

Sprint Touch Pro 2: $199 Starting Tomorrow

by Rob on September 30th, 2009

The Sprint Touch Pro 2 – in fact ALL the Touch Pro 2 phones – are sick… we aren’t denying that. But with all the options out there, asking $349.99 is pretty outrageous especially considering competitors are charging almost half of that. Thankfully, rumor has it that Sprint will be matching Verizon’s deal and offering […]

SNES Running On N900, Maemo

by Rob on September 30th, 2009

If this isn’t heaven… or at least “awesome” since I don’t want lightning to strike me for saying that… I don’t know what is. Not only does this dude who somehow got his hands on an N900 hook up an SNES emulator, he makes it compatible with a WiiMote. And then also uses TV OUT […]

AT&T Satellite Smartphone To Launch, TerreStar Genus

by Rob on September 30th, 2009

What happens when you don’t have a cell phone signal? Why not have your phone connect to a satellite network as a backup? That is exactly what the TerreStar Genus will do for AT&T and its the first smartphone to offer this feature. The smart asses of the bunch are likely saying, “If you didn’t […]

Motorola Ruby V13 Passes Bluetooth SIG

by Rob on September 30th, 2009

Perhaps the Motorola Ruby should be renamed the Motorola Phoenix – it was rumored to be canceled completely but since then has been spied in some promo pics and just yesterday passed its Bluetooth SIG certification. That means its a go… right? We hope so. It is a clamshell phone that has a 2-inch QVGA […]

O2 Catalog Leaks Early, Shows HTC HD2

by Rob on September 30th, 2009

The September edition of the O2 promotional catalog is currently in stores and we’re not sure if the October edition will be delivered tomorrow but SOMEBODY has their hands on it. They published a photo of the publication which includes none other than the HTC HD2 and its killer 4.3-inch screen: Beautiful. Glorious. But sporting […]

LG Pop Announced, Affordable Touch For Masses

by Rob on September 29th, 2009

The LG Pop (GD510) fits into a product category that 1 year ago was sorely requiring attention. Now works too – the pickings are ripe for an affordable touch screen phone with the essential features and low price. According to LG there is a massive group who want feature-filled but non-complex touch screen phones, offering […]

LG Chocolate BL40 Caveman Commercial

by Rob on September 29th, 2009

The first thing we thought of when we saw this commercial was “Geico” caveman dude. But this commercial has a dramatic soundtrack that suggests otherwise and entices you to keep watching. It has a nice little soft spot, product realization and a George Jetson moment. That’s a lot to cram into 30 seconds! Nice job […]

LG Chocolate Costs $10,000

by Rob on September 29th, 2009

The LG Chocolate will cost $10,000 for a specific buyer who wants to purchase 5 of them. Thankfully the buyer is LG themselves and YOU are the seller if your phone comes with serial number 802KPAE821224, 803KPBF578597, 803KPXV578330, 803KPVH578503, or 803KPJP923836. In a newspaper ad that was placed in 12 different regions (UK, France, Germany, […]

O2 Reminds Customers They Are The Best

by Rob on September 29th, 2009

The iPhone floodgates have opened in the UK – first it was Orange who announced they would carry the device and then Vodafone staked a claim to the iPhone. Instead of sulking about their lost exclusivity, O2 has posted a press release boasting about their two year run, market share, service and offerings: We’re proud […]

AT&T Announces Garmin Nuvifone G60

by Rob on September 29th, 2009

It has been a long, LONG time coming. For years, analysts predicted Garmin would enter the mobile phone market and we even reported that a Garmin phone could land on AT&T way back in May of 2008. The next month, in June 2008, Garmin made it official. But it isn’t until today, September 2009, that […]

iPad: Apple Tablet Announcement January 19th?

by Rob on September 29th, 2009

The rumors of an Apple Tablet have been persistently pushing around RSS feed readers for the better half a year. The move would be a pretty obvious one for Apple and the fact that they’re working on some sort of iTablet is assumed true – the rumors now are all about what will come to […]

Ozzy F#$%ing Loves The Samsung Rogue

by Rob on September 29th, 2009

You know Ozzy Osbourne. You know his phone commercials. You know the Samsung Rogue. Mix those three things together with more bleep than a (something that bleeps a lot) and you’ve got Verizon’s commercial for the Samsung Rogue. I was getting a bit sick of the Ozzy Osbourne commercials but this is pretty hilarious.

Vodafone iPhone Press Release Screams “Me Too!”

by Rob on September 29th, 2009

One day after Orange UK issued a press release announcing they will soon be offering the iPhone, Vodafone jumped on the bandwagon. It appears they didn’t want to waste any time, hastily publishing a 3-sentence press release that gives us only the bare details. But I suppose that is all we really need: Vodafone and […]

Samsung AMOLED 12M Gets Official

by Rob on September 29th, 2009

The Samsung AMOLED 12M sure did pump through the rumor mill at a furious pace. It was only yesterday that we first heard of the 2nd gen Pixon12 with 3X optical zoom. Immediately after the word got out, my panties got all in a bunch – a 10+ MP camera with optical zoom is something […]

Pixon12 with 3X Optical Zoom Gets Press Photo!

by Rob on September 28th, 2009

Holy smokes! It was just earlier today we told you about the Samsung Pixon12 – an updated version of the camera phone beast that not only sports a 12 Megapixel camera but also includes 3X optical zoom. Now we’re getting evidence that this thing could actually launch pretty soon with a press photo popping up […]

Sony Ericsson Satio Unboxing

by Rob on September 28th, 2009

Since early this year, mobile fans have been eagerly anticipating the Sony Ericsson Satio which was introduced at trade shows at the beginning of 2009 such as Mobile World Congress. It appears the beastly phone is approaching its final day in the land of the “upcoming” as the unboxing video shows final retail packaging meaning […]

Samsung Adds 3X Optical Zoom To New Pixon12

by Rob on September 28th, 2009

I’ve been saying this for a LONG time but in order for mobile phones to replace digital cameras as the average consumers go-to-device for picture taking, they’ll have to add optical zoom. People are obsessed with megapixels but in reality, anything over 10MP should to do the trick just fine. As for flash? It is […]
