Let slip the G1 of HTC/T-Mo/Google! First the live shots of the phone were up, and we all know there will be a shindig next week announcing the new HTC device which, according to the site, will be called the G1 (no mention of the “Dream” name in that little snippet). It looks like it’s …

Helio Ocean 2 hits FCC… again

September 19th, 2008

Earlier this year, around March, news of the Helio Ocean 2 was flooding the ‘net with diagrams “leaked” by the FCC. Well, the rumors and possibilities were quickly trashed when news of a Virgin Mobile acquisition of Helio came out. ‘Twas a sad day for hardcore Helio fans and mixed emotions were abound in the …

ASUS teams up with Skype to create video phone

September 19th, 2008

Video conferencing phones weren’t all too popular in the past, but this new one from ASUS looks pretty wicked. Let’s rephrase that… it looks horrible, but we might just be able to overlook that.

SanDisk to Samsung: No Way Jose

September 19th, 2008

Samsung was recently jilted by SanDisk, one of our favorite SD card and flash storage manufacturers, in a takeover attempt. SanDisk turned down nearly $6 billion from Samsung saying that it wasn’t really adequate – in many respects. It seems SanDisk doesn’t have any self-esteem issues there.

Telus says Bye-Bye to Analog, Hello Digital

September 18th, 2008

Hey Canucks! What you see in all those pretty colors are areas where there was analog coverage (in green), and the new digital coverage area. Seems like the digital coverage is slightly better than analog, but there will be those green areas which won’t have digital coverage… worrisome for those emergency situations requiring a quick …

Microsoft tries to take their image back

September 18th, 2008

In continuing with its new and “clever” line of advertising, Microsoft has temporarily ditched the Gates/Seinfeld ads in favor of reclaiming their image from Apple. As you can see in the image above, it doesn’t seem like they’re really doing themselves a huge favor by taking one of their very own employees and dressing him …

Dashboard Now Available for Verizon

September 18th, 2008

Without heavily banging the drums or dropping confetti, Verizon silently launched Dashboard, a Flash-based mobile storefront. The LG Chocolate 3 is the first to carry the application but we can expect to see it on plenty more phones by year’s end – resulting in the largest mobile implementation of Flash in the U.S. (get with …

September 17th, 2008

According to rumors floating through cyberspace this afternoon, the new HTC handset that will feature Android is going to run $200 with a new contract. Whether that accounts for any rebates is still unknown, as is the cost out-of-contract. At that price, the phone is practically a steal. With Google’s new Android platform, a sweet …
