Frankly stated, the T-Mobile Tap is among the worst phones I have ever had the displeasure of using.

All I can think of is the form factor. What appears at first glance to be a copycat of the Samsung … [read full article]

Rumor Alert: G1 To Get Android 2.0/2.1???

Well the rumor wheel is a’turning. According to the guys over at AndroidSPIN, the G1, father of the Android device is set to get an over-the-air update to Éclair, 2.0 OR 2.1. Unfortunately, their “source” was unable to specify which version the G1 faithful would be getting.  For the moment, we’re filing this firmly away in the rumor category as we’ve yet to hear anything official about upcoming Android updates from T-Mobile herself.

Merry Christmas And Go Android!

Premiering today during ABC Basketball will be the newest commercial highlighting the T-Mobile MyTouch, Android and how lazy Charles Barkley has become. I’m not exactly disappointed by this commercial as its better than the Even More commercials and does highlight some of the wide-reaching aspects of the Android market.

BlackBerry Services Down In North America Once Again

Reports are coming in of a possible BIS (BlackBerry Internet Services) Outage. We’ve already seen enough outages this year, and yet, here we have another one. According to Engadget, it looks like BIS is down in all of North America. As of yet, there is no word on when the outage will be fixed, but these outages usually don’t last very long.

Nexus One Stars In Longer Video Walkthrough

I’m not going to lie, these Nexus One updates are starting to get a little bit old, redundant and thankfully slowing down.  Today, though, we have something special.  The Nexus One has made a lengthy appearance in a video, and while it’s not quite the crystal clear, shake free video that it deserves, I’m not arguing with it.  This video will give you a nice look at the menus, all in the language of love … [read full article]
