More strangely named phones from Samsung

Earlier today we previewed the “Behold” and now we bring you the “Gravity.” Which begs the question as to how developers come with these awful names? I wonder if developers blindly go to a random page in the dictionary, point to a word and voila, we found our device name! Previously code-named the “Holic” (another name I won’t even touch) this little device from Samsung borders on those who love … [read full article]

That’s right T-mobile is in high gear for the 22nd of October, you know the day some G1 phone launches. Oh well, phones are all the same these days, right?

Haven't gotten enough of the G1?

Somebody at T-mobile loves us. T-mobile has set up and released a slick and surprisingly detailed simulator for all to enjoy.

For those who are like me and frankly will never even unwrap the manual this gives you an excellent look at … [read full article]

More ninja screenshots…

Earlier this week boygenius gave us some screen shot love showing a “launch” date for the G1 from Best Buy. The only problem was the date didn’t make any sense, a Nov 16th launch just seemed like a particularly odd date. Well, the good news is that date no longer exists as a new screen shot surfaces that shows a 10/22 launch a date we of course are all too familiar … [read full article]
