Donuts Served to the Masses

As the extending dessert list led us to believe, Google and Android has dished out Donut (well technically, they dropped new code for Android Donut).  Some people over at XDA Developers are reporting that Donut will be stuffed with system-wide multitouch, universal search, text to speech, automated backups, a new camera app, and somehow (supposedly) better performance (sounds yummy).  There also seems to be some CDMA support (for those lucky Sprint and possibly Verizon customers).  The … [read full article]

More Android Desserts to Come

http://the-mobiler.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/android-550x420.jpg

Android just seems to get sweeter and sweeter with every update, and we now know the names of the next three.  Google will be dishing out healthy servings of Donut, Eclair and Flan sometime this year.  I don’t know about you, but I’m wondering what dessert they pick when they reach “x” (in case you missed it, the updates are named alphabetically and are based off desserts).  Not much has been said about the new updates … [read full article]

"More" TP2 specs – hello to conflicting information

Impressions: To Dash or not to Dash (3G)?

Having owned a T-Mobile Dash since July 2007 and using it as my sole device for the past two years, the recent release of the Dash 3G surely got my attention as a possible new phone upgrade. Faster processing speeds, upgraded looks, a seemingly more ergonomical design, and what surely must be a host of new features were all what I was expecting when walking into a T-Mobile store to check the device out for myself. Being … [read full article]

Open Box Specials!

Looking to get your phone a little bit cheaper than everyone else? Then step right up to what we’re calling T-Mobile’s “Open Box Specials” (pls give us royalties if this catches on, kthx).

While it looks like a pretty solid, standard case in which to hold the phone, it’s actually missing one major component to what makes a holster a REAL holster… a clip! While that makes this great for those who want to protect your phone while it’s busy being … [read full article]

[singlepic=17,451,300] Been looking forward to seeing the Touch Pro2 in daylight for once? Pictures have surfaced of T-Mobile’s next Windows Mobile device that actually do not feature the device in a somewhat dark room. Not that we don’t appreciate ALL photos of this phone that we’ve seen, but it’s great to actually see it in a room full of sunlight. Our photographer had this to say during the 45 minutes he had to use it and … [read full article]
