myTouch Slide Free At Radio Shack Today Only!

We’ve never been ones to pass up a great deal so for those of you who have been eyeing that myTouch Slide for a while now, Radio Shack has a deal for you. Of course the wording is a little vague “with qualifying new 2-year agreement” so it’s possible this could swing for both upgrades and new customers but surely one of our readers can clarify for us or else we’ll be calling up … [read full article]

GLBenchmarks Show G2 to Be Just as Fast as Droid X, Samsung Galaxy S

Like many of you, I was surprised to find out that the G2′s processor would be clocked at a mere 800MhZ.  Despite this,  the G2′s graphics should run just as fast as the Droid X, and even the Samsung Galaxy S (see image above, the G2 is only behind the Droid X and Slide).  This just goes to show that what the processor is clocked at isn’t everything, performance is! And yes, that … [read full article]

myTouch Slide Software Update Coming Tomorrow?

We received word late last night that the myTouch Slide will be receiving a maintenance update starting August 4th and running through August 19th. The usual set of bug fixes is expected here (battery life, software feature updates etc…) but unfortunately this has no relation to an expected Froyo 2.2 update sometime down the road. I guess some fixes are better than no fixes so Slide customers sit back receive that update. “Beginning August … [read full article]

New myTouch Slide TV Ad Campaign Kicks off

T-Mobile looks like its ready to finally unleash its television campaign for the myTouch Slide with its Twitter account giving us an early look. This thirty second spot seems to focus on the “Genius” button and how helpful it can be to speak your search. Personally, I always know where the local ice cream place is, but that’s just me. I don’t know if this will sway the tech savvy, but it might score with … [read full article]

Verizon Now The Dominant Android Player, T-Mobile In Second Place?

I suppose in hindsight I really shouldn’t have been as surprised as I was over the results of a recent study regarding Android usage. I would have thought that T-Mobile, as the originating Android carrier would have remained the dominant player in the game, but the handset is really the buying decision now, not the carrier. With that in mind, according to a recent study by Chitika Research, Verizon is now the dominant player in … [read full article]

Comparison Chart, T-Mobile Vs iPhone 4

It’s not uncommon for carriers to release a bullet point comparison sheet when a competitor is about to drop a major device onto the scene. Considering it doesn’t get any bigger than iPhone 4, the fact that T-Mobile has a comparison chart available for its employees is hardly news. We think its well beyond safe to say that Sprint and Verizon have either posted their own or will do so in the coming days. What’s … [read full article]

Has The myTouch Marketing Campaign Begun?

Thanks to one of our eagle-eyed readers we see the myTouch Slide “massive” marketing campaign has begun, with billboards in the NYC Subway. I might add, I saw the very same poster just this morning driving in the Ft Lauderdale area here in South Florida. While we know that the official launch of the myTouch Slide doesn’t kick off till June 16th, we hope that they blanket cities with billboards such as the … [read full article]

What We Think June 19th Is, But What Do You Want It To Be?

 Just over one week ago, the guys over at Engadget got their hands on a some myTouch Slide documents containing all sorts of goodies about the device. However, one piece of information contained within these documents set off a mystery. On June 19th, it was stated “STAY TUNED – THIS WILL BE BIG.” Well, we didn’t think anything of it really other than it would be a myTouch Slide promotional effort until … [read full article]
