Espresso profile looks real enough

Before I say anything else I need to clarify that the photo above is NOT REAL. It came from Tweakers.net where an HTC phone profile on Espresso was recently posted (also seen at Allaboutphones). What could be real is the profile of the phone, the existence of which was leaked in that list of HTC devices I wrote about the other day (next photo). Would… Read more

Your HTC Eris questions and requests

I’ve already shipped this phone off to Adriana Lee Dellario but there’s still one more video on the way. Well, the second part of this vid, which I’ll add to this post later tonight. Thanks for participating, everyone! EDIT: Second part after the break Part 1: Part 2 (click the link if you’re on the DroidDog homepage.)… Read more

Unlocked Hero with US 3G for sale / headed for AT&T?

Check out this page over at Negri Electronics where they’re offering up unlocked Heroes for $579.50. Why are these any different than the phones you can import from Europe? These NAM (North American)Heroes are capable of 3G on AT&T. And it’s just rumor at this point but if you like rumors, try this one on for size: the Hero is apparently headed for AT&T… Read more

At least one Hero is running Android 2.1. What about you?

A couple of days ago, Engadget posted some leaked screenshots of a Hero running Android 2.1 (shown with altered watermark below). Which, of course, caused a collective sigh of relief for current Hero owners who have been wondering when – if ever – they would see Google Navigation. But what about the rest of us? Not all of us are desperately in need of… Read more

Is HTC’s Passion, aka Dragon, launching mid-December?

That’s what a BGR tipster is claiming, and BGR isn’t disagreeing. They also claim that this is asnap of the screen. Looks nice, don’t it? If you think the hype about Droid is over the top, just wait until VZW gets a killer Sense-packing Snapdragon on the market – just before Christmas. Red will have people controlling rocket ships with voice commands…. Read more

I now have Droid and Eris under the same roof

You can see my Eris unboxing and first impressions over at PhoneDog. You know the drill, folks. Time to send ‘em in. Make sure you are clear about which phone your question or request is regarding because it’s getting pretty busy ’round here. I can’t say how long I’ll have either device, but if you want some comparisons of this and that, a side-by-side… Read more

Sprint’s Hero has been rooted

As is the case with all hacks/mods/unsupported tweaks, I can’t recommend doing this. It’s quite possible that during the process of rooting one could damage their phone beyond the point of repair. This is usually an out-of-warranty situation and HTC can charge you a small fortune for a new motherboard. That said, the CDMA Hero has been rooted. I… Read more

Noah goes hands-on with Droid Eris

Well, there you go! 10 minutes after I post Cesar’s walk-through, we get one from the big dog himself. Something tells me I’ll be doing one of these before too long, and I might even have a chance to try out a dogfight or two. Which phone would you like to see Eris battle? Via… Read more

Droid Eris officially announced

O.K., so it’s not a big shock at this point, but HTC and Verizon have made it official as of today. Eris will be available tomorrow at $99 after a $100 mail-in rebate on a two-year contract. Cesar is back for another quick walk-through. Seven screens? I’ll never use them, but I’m still loving Sense. Check some specs after the video. * 3.2 inch… Read more

Return of The Chin

If you’re fond enough of the GSM Hero to consider importing it from Europe only to settle for EDGE speeds, then the small task of grabbing one from Canada to unlock and run on AT&T’s 3G network is practically a gimme. The GSM Hero is coming to Telus, and with it comes the instantly classic design that you and I fell in love with last June. Check out… Read more
