RIM CEO says AT&T still testing Blackberry Bold

October 3rd, 2008

It looks like RIM is saying, “Hey, don’t look at us! AT&T is still conducting testing!” Whomever we decide to point the finger toward is just beyond important anymore. The device was announced in May for a summer sale, and as of yet there are no official announcements from AT&T, the U.S. carrier for the …

Sure, the bulk of BGR’s readership might come from elsewhere but that does that mean we can’t talk about some good news for our friends across the (other) pond in Russia from time to time? Beginning today you can brave the chilly weather and head to your local, or not-so-local, mobile retailer or electronics store …

We gave you a list of upcoming phones a while back and one of them included the V9x. Well, from the looks of it, it began shipping right on time. For those of you who are big Moto fans and you liked the RAZR2 V9 but hated the color, here’s your chance to pick up …

Steve Ballmer hatin’ on Google Android

October 3rd, 2008

Steve Ballmer needs to slow his roll! While on tour in the U.K. for the Professional Developers Conference, Ballmer saw it fit to take a little jab at Android and reaffirm Microsoft’s status in the mobile world. One would think that he learned his lesson when he laughed at the iPhone when it was first …

T-Mobile HTC Shadow II is on the horizon

October 2nd, 2008

Following up on their popular and consumer-friendly T-Mobile Shadow, the boys in pink are releasing the Shadow 2. While we’ve seen it before, from these pics, it looks a little better and definitely a nice successor to the original. The keyboard still features the two-letters-per-key, which some are not a huge fan of, and reveals …

Moto Krave ZN4 and VU204 hitting Verizon Wireless

October 2nd, 2008

After releasing some touchscreens from LG and Samsung, Verizon is going to carry the Moto ZN4, or “Krave”. It certainly looks a hell of a lot like the Ming A1200 with the clear flip and the earpiece almost magically floating in that clear piece of plastic. Oh wait, we had one of these! The phone …

Camera sold on eBay contains MI6 intelligence

October 1st, 2008

James Bond couldn’t have been this careless, could he? Nah, it was probably a rookie; you know, an agent who hadn’t, and probably won’t, make it to Double-0 status. Anyhoo, a Nikon Coolpix camera sold on eBay for $30 turned out to be well worth the money, assuming the benefits outweigh the risks. In this …

Samsung Sway and Motorola Rapture hitting Verizon

October 1st, 2008

Some of our Verizon readers felt a little jilted when we mentioned the mini-army of Samsungs headed for AT&T. Well here’s one coming for VZW, the Sway, but not nearly as cool as other Samsungs. 2 megapixel camera, possibly no EV-DO, somewhat of an LG Shine rip-off; maybe the person in charge of releasing this …
