Will hails from The City of Angels - Los Angeles, California. He spends his time playing with his numerous gadgets and looking forward to seeing what future holds for mobile technology. An avid promoter of a fully "digital" life, he promotes the widespread adoption of truly mobile, paper-less living. He dreams of the day when he can go completely digital. No more snail mail, paper receipts, bound books, notepads/spiral notebooks, credit cards, hard currency. He's a digital warrior - fighting for the converged life. He is an idealist and a realist - he has a perfect view of what the world should be but knows that the world is not perfect. Can we ever hope to see Will's dream become reality? We'll see...
Sony is back in the mobile phone game having acquired Ericsson’s part of the joint venture. At the CES, we’ve seen two new Sony smartphones for the Japanese market – Xperia NX and Xperia acro HD, as well as two models for the western hemisphere, Xperia ion and Xperia S, first of which will join AT&T’s portfolio in the second quarter of this year. Moreover, the company also unveiled three mobile accessories (so called Smart Extras), including NFC-based SmartTags, Bluetooth headset turned MP3 player – Smart Wireless Headset pro, and … Read more
Intel is trying really hard to enter the mobile game. At the CES in Las Vegas, the chip maker demonstrated its Atom-based reference smartphone and announced deals with Motorola and Lenovo. The Chinese company could easily help Intel quickly get traction in the world’s most populous country, eventually reaching millions of units shipped within a short period of time. On the other hand, going to bed with Motorola means teaming-up with Google, and that’s also a good sign. The question is whether Intel will succeed this time, with ARM having … Read more
We already know the LG Spectrum has been announced but we thought we’d show our readers the rest of the press conference LG held earlier today. While the event wasn’t completely focused on mobile, the introduction of the Spectrum and its features are sure to satisfy. Check out some of the highlights below!
MetroPCS is the first U.S. carrier to officially announce new devices at the CES (which BTW opens for public tomorrow). They’ve prepared two LTE smartphones for the big event – the Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G and LG Connect 4G. First let’s talk about Sammy’s baby. It’s a mid-range device with a 3.5-inch screen, 1GHz processor, 3-megapixel camera with LED flash on the back and 1.3-megapixel front-facing one [camera]. MetroPCS will offer the Attain 4G for $199 plus tax, after a $50 mail-in rebate, with a two-year contract. Then there’s much … Read more
HTC Radiant, one of the Windows Phone devices AT&T will unveil at the CES next week, has been leaked and voila – you can see it from the image above. At first glance it looks like the HTC Titan, though there are some changes included, most notably 4G LTE support. Moreover, there are some minor design changes on the outside such as a fairly larger HTC logo, slightly bigger front-facing camera lens, while dual-LED flash has been moved to the right side of the camera. Full specs sheet is not … Read more
Vopium updated its Android app as I’m sure every user of the popular VoIP service has already noticed. The reason is simple – the application got a new “streamlined” UI that “improves communications and enhances the user experience” by automatically optimizing itself to match each device’s resolution and screen size. Moreover, the new app also includes a guided tour of Vopium’s analytics of user habits and preferences that help maximize savings on local and international calls. A wizard gathers call-quality feedback and provides the per minute rate BEFORE each call … Read more
Even though Verizon Wireless still hasn’t announced the DROID 4 — as far as I can tell they’ll do that from the floor of CES in Las Vegas — Best Buy has already prepared a promotional material for the device. As a matter of fact, the QWERTY keyboard-equipped smartphone got its place at the retailer’s Rewards Zone mini-site where it’s clearly presented with few other smartphones like the HTC Evo 3D and Samsung Galaxy S II. We can’t blame Best Buy for pulling this off — after all, at one … Read more
When iOS 5 was released a few weeks ago, iPhone users quickly complained about the damage it did to battery life. iPhone 4S owners seemed to be the most vocal, so many believed that it had something to do with the new hardware. Never mind the fact that Apple explicitly mentioned that the iPhone 4S has shorter standby time than the iPhone 4, but it did seem like battery life was truly fickle. On most days, my battery life was OK, but on others it was just awful. Apple acknowledged … Read more
We just got a glimpse of the HTC Rezound with Beats Audio for Verizon Wireless, an Android smartphone whose focus is to deliver the best video and audio quality you can get on a smartphone. Whether it lives up to those claims is still up in the air, especially since we’ve only had about five solid minutes with the device. Our initial impressions, however, are generally positive. No need to get into specs here, for those, you can just click here. In the hand, the HTC Rezound feels pretty solid, … Read more
We’re live in New York for HTC’s Rezound event, a new Android smartphone for Verizon Wireless. The Rezound will feature Beats Audio, so it’ll likely come with headphones and other software similar to the Sensation XL and Sensation XC overseas. Our live blog is below, so if you have any questions or comments, be sure to add them there!
Facebook for Windows Phone 7 just received an update that will allow the app to support Mango’s, or Windows Phone 7.5, new features. Now that Mango makes the WP7 experience feel a little more complete, it’s good to see apps like Facebook – a service most of us use with some frequency – updated to support Mango’s live tiles and other integrated features. From WMPowerUser: The update brings the software to version 2.2 and ads the ability to pin selected elements of the app, for example the Messages inbox, to … Read more
