Android and T-Mobile, A Love Story

The day has come, the day of Android.  Google has risen victorious, proving the majority of analysts wrong.  Android has evolved; changing with every savory dessert and adding features that are not only ground breaking, but have allowed them to compete with the old industry leaders.  Android, as we know and love it now, is not the same beast that we encountered in the days of the G1.  It is smoother, some may say polished, … [read full article]

(UPDATED)Official T-Mobile G2 Images Surface

G2 fans, get excited.  Seriously though, this is important.  What’s as good as live shots?  That’s right, press shots that happen to be on T-Mobile’s servers.  This really puts the nail in the coffin if you ask me, though that is a bit grim (we are looking for positive here).  This phone is in fact coming soon, and does it look great? I think so! Aside from that, all looks good and clear … [read full article]
