AT&T delivers U-verse mobile app to Android phones

Android fans on AT&T have gotten the short end of the stick more times than we can count. It took far too long for AT&T to hop on board the Android bus and now that the wheels are going round and round, AT&T subscribers are still forced to deal with a less-than-stellar handset selection compared to the competition. In an effort to make amends, AT&T today announced the availability of its U-verse mobile app for Android handsets. The app gives Android users the ability to schedule recordings on their DVR boxes remotely. U-verse mobile can also download and play TV shows and movies that have already been recorded on a user’s DVR. AT&T’s U-verse app for Android is available immediately for the Samsung Captivate and HTC Aria, with versions for the Motorola FLIPSIDE and Motorola BRAVO set to follow soon. Unfortunately, the app is not available for the ancient OS build still residing on the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. Hit the jump for the full press release. More →

Best Buy advertises the HTC Aria with 4G

In a small but embarrassing snafu, Best Buy Mobile is proudly displaying the HTC Aria on the front of its Mobile Buyers Guide with 4G connectivity. An eagle-eyed reader noticed the aberrant 4G icon and was quick to point out that it does not belong on that particular Android handset which runs on a network that does not even feature 4G. Now, we realize that stock images of devices are loosely tossed around on marketing materials but you would think that the front cover of the Mobile Buyers Guide would be a bit more accurate, no? Full cover with the Aria front and center is after the jump. More →
