Pulse Has Too Many Dots

We keep hearing about the T-Mobile Pulse without much confirmation on a US release (but I still think we will see some Huawei Android phone in the future).  However, we do have more information on the U8220 bound for a European release (I’m still hoping it will launch here, and maybe I’m not the only one, right?).  Anyways, there was a dealers website that put up details (and what appears to be … [read full article]

Rover Previewed, Loved

After a bunch of speculation, and well, confirmation, we can assume that T-Mobile will be seeing the Nokia N900 sometime in the future.  Some lucky people, however, have had time to extensively preview this monster of an internet tablet, and luckily they documented everything.  The staff over at Mobile Review took the time to preview the Rover and give first impressions, giving some more clues on what to expect come launch time, including a … [read full article]

T-Mobile Pulse Passes The FCC

T-Mobile Pulse

The original thought was that T-Mobile was going to get the Huawei 8230.  Then uncertainty arose when the WiFi documents of the 8220 came around.  At long last, though, we have found the heartbeat, courtesy of the FCC, to the T-Mobile Pulse and it is alive (and I couldn’t be happier).  The T-Mobile Pulse is listed as a HSPA/UMTS/GPRS/GSM/EDGE Mobile Phone with Bluetooth, which seems about right.  Also, Huawei has asked that the … [read full article]

G1 Stuck Eating Cupcakes

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

While the G1 has been snacking on Cupcake, or Android 1.5, for quite some time now, it seems as though it will be too full to eat any more desserts.  While the first Android phone graced us with its presence, its hardware is lacking and is forcing it to be left out to get stale.  Dave Sparks, an Android software engineer, has said that devs “won’t be able to fit the latest [Android] release on … [read full article]

Samsung T659 (Scarlet) Sliding In September 2nd

The Samsung T659 (another phone you may remember from June), codenamed Scarlet, is another low end phone coming to T-Mobile in September.  The Scarlet is a 3G enabled slider with stereo bluetooth, a 2 megapixel camera with video capture, and is capable of E-mail, messaging (text, picture AND video) and instant messaging.  They are calling this a premium slider, so get them while they are hot.  Two more pictures after the break. … [read full article]

MyTouch 3G Rooted, Reportedly Sprouting

There was a report a long while back saying that the MyTouch 3G is impossible to hack, but in the words of Adidas “Impossible is nothing.”  Some crazy hackers (the well known Haykuro and dream_kill) set their eyes on the prize and have officially rooted the MyTouch.  Now, this isn’t an easy task, and the 20 step, or so, process makes it seem overly simple (alas, it is not).  Why root, … [read full article]
