T-Mobile Installs First Solar-Powered Cell Tower

We caught wind of this a few days ago thanks to an article from GigaOM but with the whole G2 news cycle it kind of got lost in the fold. Sometimes though we have to congratulate a carrier for taking the first step in an environmentally friendly manner. T-Mobile is that carrier today having announced their very first Solar Powered cell tower in Pennsylvania. The site itself will generate enough power to keep itself off … [read full article]

LG Optimus Reveals Itself, Wi-Fi Calling On Board?

HTC HD2 Update Coming Soon?

Are those pictures of the HD7 making your HD2 feel unloved?  Well, maybe we can fix that.  According to our in-house Windows Mobile enthusiast and lover (T1 Connect in the forums), you may be seeing an update coming your way.  Apparently there is a ROM Update (3.14) out there in the wild that comes in the form of a ruu, which I guess makes it official and not a custom ROM (right?).  … [read full article]

Nokia Nuron Overclocked

You read that right, the Nokia 5230 (or the Nuron) has been overclocked.  The question here is why?  Why would someone in their right mind undertake the task of (or even want to) overclocking the Nuron.  Well, the simple answer could just be that it can be done and we have the technology (or maybe they were bored).  Either way, someone did it, and now that 434MHz ARM11 chip screams at 800MHz.  This “fix” hasn’t … [read full article]

HTC HD3/HD7 In The Wild

As pictured above, the handset has an HD3 label across the bottom half. Interestingly enough, as pictured in the image below, the metal surrounding the camera flips out  to … [read full article]

Samsung Says They Are Working On A Vibrant GPS Fix, In Other News The Sky Is Blue

While I’m almost positive this will incite a mini revolt against Samsung, they have stated that GPS improvements are coming to “other carrier partners” just moments after they released the fix for the AT&T Samsung Captivate. I can’t, for the life of me understand why these updates would not be doled out together but hey, I’m just a lowly blogger with a minimal understanding of these things. However, it’s a little aggravating to see … [read full article]

HTC HD7 Sketch Images Leaked?

Although most of you might have been expecting some in the wild pics or even Mr. Blurrycam pics, these design sketches will suffice. The guys over at WMPoweruser seem to have scored some schematic images of the upcoming HTC HD7. While we can’t confirm whether these images are 100% legit, from the looks of it they seem pretty real. Based on the sketches, like its predecessor, the HD2, the HTC HD7 appears to sport a … [read full article]

(Updated With Second Image) T-Mobile Says Pre-Ordering Starts “Soon!”

Obviously at this point we’re playing a pretty fun guessing game on the subject of a T-Mobile G2 release date. We started out with September 29th, and then a Best Buy pre-order combined with our own sources led us to an October 6th date. Now, rumors both from our own sources and a T-Mobile forum leak claim that the middle of October, the 16th in fact is now the day for … [read full article]
