Flash Coming to Android First Half Of 2010

Not much of new news here since we already knew Flash for Android handsets was coming in early 2010. If you didn’t already know, enabling Flash on a mobile handset would make it possible to play streaming video inside the browser. Online video streaming websites (YouTube and Hulu) rely on Flash player. This is something that has been absent in many handsets, but that should change come early 2010.

Nokia 5230 T-Mobile Bound?

With the inclusion of AWS (T-Mobile 3G) on the N900, it was clear to see that Nokia and T-Mobile were starting to warm up to one another.  In fact, it is starting to look like we may be graced by another T-Mobile 3G ready Nokia soon.

T-mobile Releases Tap

Not a whole lot of fanfare surrounding the release of the T-Mobile Tap, but as a “smart” dumbphone it fits nicely between the traditional phone and the Android lead T-Mobile smartphone lineup. Coming in at $79.99 it’s a perfect little stocking stuffer this holiday season. Touchscreen, 3G and a 2.0 megapixel camera — what more could you ask for in a phone that won’t break the bank?

fido-3g-data

Well somehow this skipped our radar yesterday but apparently T-Mobile laid out “aggressive” plans to deploy 7.2 Mbps HSPA through all 3G spectrum by year’s end.  Even more noteworthy is T-Mobile’s continued discussion regarding an HSPA+ rollout in 2010 that would be a “fairly broad scale” rollout. T-Mobile continued to emphasize 3G coverage will expand to 200 million pops before the end of 2009 with 240 cities currently covered. This contrasts to the AT&T and … [read full article]
