More EVO hands on time at CTIA

If the PhoneDog EVO video I posted yesterday wasn’t enough for you, check out this one that Noah and Aaron shot as the convention center was being shut down. This phone is full of wow: it’s a mobile router/hotspot for eight devices, can output HDMI, has dual cameras, and rocks pretty much everywhere that 99.9% of phones don’t. And in my personal opinion,… Read more

Knocking Live: video calls between iPhone and Android

For those of you that haven’t heard of Knocking Live before, it’s a tremendously successful video sharing app that has remained in the top ten of iPhone social apps since launch. Despite the strong numbers the program has achieved, the launch itself wasn’t exactly smooth. In fact, the program was originally banned fro the Apple App Store, only to be… Read more

EVO to launch in late May? Uh, nope!


UPDATE: I was wrong. The author of the post I was skeptical about, which was submitted to me as a story for this website, has returned to remind me of this post and to gloat just a bit. But what can I say? He called it (see comments). Be sure to check out Wen’s posts at MobileBlab. END UPDATE ____________________________ MobileBlab is reporting… Read more

Dell Mini 5 demo from CTIA


Some folks from TheStreet are at CTIA and caught a video demonstration of Dell’s Mini 5 (as it is known on the Internet). The quad-band GSM and WCDMA device to output 720p video over HDMI. Nice. It looks like the PR rep and cameraman from TheStreet are having a tug-o’-war. I think Dell kept the gadget though. Video after the break…. Read more

CTIA: Kyocera Zio hands on

We told you yesterday about Kyocera’s budget entry into the Android game, and Aaron from PhoneDog got some demo time with the device, which will sell for around $200 and packs a 480 x 800 display and 600 MHz Qualcomm pocessor. Via PhoneDog… Read more

Sony Ericsson X10 entirely subsidized by T-Mobile UK

UPDATE: HTC’s Desire is also free on a similar contract, but with 1200 minutes! While we still don’t have any details on the American release, we know exactly what customers will be paying to get their hands on the phone on T-Mobile across the pond: nothing. That is, on a two-year contract at £35.00 a month ($currently around $52) for 900 minutes and… Read more

CTIA: HTC Supersonic is the EVO 4G

What could be one of the most significant, if not monstrous, Androids to date will be launching this Summer on Sprint’s 4G network. The device, which looks more than a little bit like HTC’s HD2, is the first to utilize the carrier’s WiMAX to keep you in touch. To be more specific, calls will be made via CDMA and data will transfer via EV-DO / WiMAX. We’re… Read more

Kyocera’s Zio M6000 won’t break the bank

And unlike other budget Androids, this one touts some pretty impressive specs, considering the rumored unsubsidized price range of $169 to $216. The Zio’s display is 3.5 inches at 800×480, and the phone is equipped with a 600 MHz Qualcomm processor. It’s thought to be launching with Android 1.6, which may be a detractor for some but we don’t yet know if it… Read more

CTIA: Samsung Galaxy S

Samsung has unveiled (apparently through some bizarre play) their latest Android, the Galaxy S. The phone marks a turnpoint in Samsung’s direction, featuring a 4″ super AMOLED display and a 1GHz processor – reportedly the new standard for Samsung smart phones. The device has a 5 MP primary camera with autofocus, a front-facing VGA cam, a 15 mAh battery,… Read more

Dell’s Mini 3 is Aero, headed for AT&T

After all of the hubbub surrounding AT&T’s handling of the Motorola Backflip, one would hope that the company’s next Android would signal a more complete and up-to-date experience for consumers, but I’m not holding my breath. It seems that contracts and beef between industry beasts are often more significant in the way things shake out than consumer… Read more
