Windows Phone 7 Announced, Previewed

With little surprise Windows Phone has been completely overhauled with its series “7” iteration. Unsurprisingly it’s taken on a very Zune like interface and that’s not a bad thing. If the iPhone taught us one thing, it’s that simplicity can work to your advantage if done right and Windows is certainly bringing their massive resources to bear with the future release of Windows Phone 7. Details are still forthcoming out of Mobile World Congress and we’ve got … [read full article]

Motorola Cliq XT Announced, Heading To T-Mobile As Expected

Motorola has announced this morning over at Mobile World Congress the Cliq XT, aka Zeppelin for T-Mobile. Not too much surprise here as we have had some pretty good indication this phone would make a T-Mobile US launch since the middle of January.  The name should also come as no surprise as a leaked retail slide brought us some hint that this would be the launch name. For the record, my vote would … [read full article]

Motorola Cliq Maintenance Update Coming This Week?

First off, let’s all get on the same page and understand I am not talking about an Android update, but a maintenance update. Just a little over two weeks ago an “accidental” release from Motorola, designated update 1.3.8 leaked to a few Motorola Cliq users and included battery life, touchscreen, improved GPS tracking and various other bug fixes and improvements. More to the point is that a few TmoNews readers have written in stating that … [read full article]

CLIQ Scheduled For Android 2.1 Q2 2010

As you may recall, previously there was word on the interwebs that the Motorola CLIQ would be receiving Android 2.1 “sometime in March”. Motorola has put this rumor to bed once and for all with a new timeline that they’ve posted in their support forums revealing a list of future upgrades to Android 2.1 for all Motorola Android handsets.

HTC HD2 In The Hizzouse!!!

Sometimes being in the tech blogging game has its rewards and this is one of those instances. I’ve managed to score an HTC HD2 from a “hush hush” source and they are allowing me some hands on time with a full review coming later on. First impressions are with all sincerity, damn impressive. The touchscreen works amazingly well, is responsive, accurate and while I’ve seen a hiccup or two inside Opera selecting links, typing up a … [read full article]

T-Mobile Tweets “Stay Tuned Next Week” For HD2 Info

It’s not often T-Mobile tweets about an upcoming device but this time they are doing a little teaser for HD2 fans everywhere. “Think you know the HTC HD2? Guess again…Stay tuned for more next week.” Now, after analyzing this a little (translation, reading it twice) I honestly don’t think we are going to see a launch next week as the rumored March 24th date seems to line up with a “Spring” launch. However unlikely, it would … [read full article]

Nexus One 3G Woes, Part 315

This problem just won’t go away.  Even after the latest OTA update, the Nexus One is still having 3G problems.  As you will see in the video above, 3G connectivity changes dramatically just by how the phone is being held.  Now, if you ask me, this certainly doesn’t sound like a T-Mobile 3G problem.  Also, I’m not one to point fingers at a certain Chrome and Buzz-ing company, especially since they have so much power … [read full article]

Lexington, KY Goes 3G

Well it has certainly been a while since we’ve seen or heard anything surrounding 3G launches for T-Mobile. Our attention has been focused on HSPA and HSPA+ services that we have all but lost sight that not everyone has received 3G service. Lexington, Kentucky is the first 3G launch is the first 3G launch in two months and we know that plenty of areas are still left. However, HSPA and HSPA+ still dominate our desires … [read full article]

Garmin A50 Revealed, Still Supposed To Come To Magenta

Let me just be honest here, I want to be excited about this, I was hoping to be excited about this but I’m not. The last Garmin phone to enter the US market met less than favorable reviews. Check that, the reviews were downright nasty. We’ve been waiting for some more info on this phone since its FCC debut back in early January. That being said, while the phone itself looks … [read full article]
