The device, which is being referred to as the Nexus Two, was described as “black and shiny” with a 4-inch AMOLED display (we would assume Super AMOLED since it’s …

Rogers to offer customers early equipment upgrade… after 30 months

October 20th, 2010

You think signing a 2-year cellular contract is bad? Think about our poor brethren up north! Canadian carriers frequently require a 3-year contract in order for customers to obtain the most aggressive handset discounts; which means you are stuck with your phone of choice for an entire 36-months. Pretty rough. According to a memo obtained by BGR, …

RIM not announcing BlackBerry tablet at DevCon today?

September 27th, 2010

Well, here is what we have confirmed: the keynote today, delivered by Mike Lazaridis, will focus on the next generation tablet OS platform.

Motorola DROID 2 unboxing / impressions

August 13th, 2010

The original Motorola DROID practically saved Motorola’s wireless division (though we suppose you could argue Verizon deserves the same amount of credit, if not more). Following up on their superstar handset is the Motorola DROID 2 — couple refinements here, couple changes there. It’s nothing breathtaking, more like another option in the getting-very-crowded Android section …
