First Cliq Review

Nokia N97

While we wait for the pre-order date and availability date, how about some impressions from lucky people (or just rewatch all those videos).  This specific review, however, is actually for the DEXT, but they are essentially the same phone (is anyone complaining?).  Katherine, over at T3, was lucky enough to get some time with the Cliq sibling and she seems rather impressed by it, even calling it a “new dawn” for … [read full article]

Deutsche Telekom Shareholders Want Action

It’s only been a few days since the recent round of rumors peg Deutsche Telekom looking into acquisition of Sprint and yet, another option has presented itself. Unfortunately, though this option has a much less positive spin than the acquisition of the third and fourth place wireless players in the US would have.  Coming on the heels of the T-mobile UK merger with Orange in the UK, the two big shareholders for Deutsche Telekom are beginning … [read full article]

Nokia 5130 Playing September 16th


Here is a friendly reminder about T-Mobile’s next media centered phone.  The Nokia 5130, which we told you about last month, is destined for shelves tomorrow and will replace the Nokia 5310 (that still seems backwards to me).  It is a pretty simple, affordable, music playing phone with a 2 megapixel camera, external music controls, a 3.5 mm headphone jack (YAY!) and it will have a couple of color options.  Full specs and a picture after … [read full article]


Obvious Simpson’s reference aside, here is some news for those current (or upcoming) Android users.  Google has released the SDK for Android 1.6 or Donut (which really gives the power to developers to fine tune the update).  However, what interests the consumer is that Donut will officially be served to the masses “as early as October” (HEY! that is in like two weeks!).    This Donut will be stuffed with a tasty cream filling … [read full article]

T-mobile To Discuss Post 3G Plans

A lot has been said in the wireless world about what life will be like in a post 3G environment. Fourth generation technology offers significant speed improvements and hopefully significantly improved technology capable of enhancing reception in areas that have been all too often problematic, say inside a building?! Sprint, AT&T and Verizon have all committed themselves publicly to fourth generation networks with Sprint leading the pack promising a Wimax rollout before the competition. However, our beloved … [read full article]

Leaning Toward An October 19th Cliq Pre-order

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past week, you probably know all about the Motorola Cliq (and all of the speculation and confusion surrounding it).  Well, while some seem certain that the next Android phone will be hitting T-Mobile stores early next month, we will be standing by our previous October 19th pre-order date.  Why? Well, because we have our second form of visual proof.  It comes in the … [read full article]

David Does Talk Radio

Looking for some talk radio discussing all things Android, Cliq and everything else?  Look no further.  Our very own David (you know him, right?) is appearing as a guest on Android Guys Podcast tonight (September 14th, 2009) to discuss Android, and more specifically the Cliq.  Listen in and maybe you will hear some delightful news (I can’t promise this, but it is sure possible).  Head on over and give them a listen, it should … [read full article]

T-mobile To Buy Sprint Rumor, Take 24

This rumor seems to pop up every time the wind blows in a certain direction. T-mobile wants to acquire Sprint, Sprint wants to acquire T-mobile, Sprint and T-mobile dance the Samba etc etc. Deutsche Telekom (T-mobile USA parent company) has a market value six times that of Sprint and while Sprint seems to be on a roll these days with a bounty of surprisingly affordable yet all encompassing plans combined with a super star winter … [read full article]

Sense in Tattoo


Motorola Cliq or Huawei Luna not your style, then maybe some HTC Tattoo fits your needs.  While we have known that the Tattoo has android, we can now see that it will also run the Sense UI, which ultimately means it will not be a “With Google” phone.  It seems odd to me that HTC would run the sense UI on a 2.8 inch resistive touch screen, but I’m not entirely complaining.  Head … [read full article]
