New Samsung Android Phone Coming

Samsung-T959-T-Mobile-Galaxy-S

Well, well, what do we have here?  It looks like a new Samsung phone has received approval by the Bluetooth SIG.  See that “T” with three numbers after it, yeah, that means it is T-Mobile bound.  Now, the sheet is a bit misleading, stating that it is the T959 and then later the T939.  Either way, it should be an interesting Samsung phone.  Speculation has it that this is the Galaxy S, but since that passed the … [read full article]

Of course, that’s all dependent on if you believe the screen shots the guys at Phandroid managed to get their hands on. Courtesy of one of their readers who snooped through Costco internal systems, this image clearly shows the Vender as T-Mobile and the device as HTC Incredible. Just like the boys at Phandroid, we’re … [read full article]

Cliq and Cliq XT Getting Android 2.1

I know what you are thinking, “the Cliq just received an update, how could another one be coming?”  Okay, well maybe it is more like, “it’s about time.”  Either way, Motorola updated their update listing to make sure the update status for each of their Android phones is up to date, or updated (one more update for good measure).  It looks like both the Cliq and Cliq XT will be receiving a Blur enhanced … [read full article]
