posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2609 days, 10 hours, 45 minutes ago
Friday, July 30, 2010 12:27:06 AM GMT
Motorola has rolled out another Droid X ad poking fun at the Apple iPhone 4 "design compromised" antenna. Like the last one, it's a full page ad for newspapers, but this time it's drawing attention to the fact that it doesn't require a case for the antenna to work at its best. (more)

Xbox 360 Profit Covered KIN's Failure

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2614 days, 14 hours, 51 minutes ago
Saturday, July 24, 2010 8:20:42 PM GMT
Two weeks ago we reported that Microsoft sold 503 KIN (One and Two) messaging phones in less than two months before the company pulled the plug. Other reports indicated that the final number was less than 10,000, however consumers will likely not ever know the real figures, possibly to prevent further embarrassment on Microsoft's behalf.

Droid X Owners Consuming 5x as Much Data

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2614 days, 14 hours, 53 minutes ago
Saturday, July 24, 2010 8:19:00 PM GMT
Verizon is rumored to be moving away from unlimited data plans and towards a tiered system, and with more and more customers purchasing smartphones, it's easy to see why. The advent of smartphones for the masses has meant a significant number of people who previously wouldn't have required a data plan at all, are guzzling MBs thanks to data-intensive applications on their phones. Last month, Verizon's John Killian said things were expected to get even worse for wireless networks as new phones designed f... (more)

Chinese Students Forced into Foxconn Internships

Friday, July 02, 2010 7:26:15 AM GMT
Imagine this scenario: prior to 2010, a company witnessed three strange deaths and two suicides. Then, when 2010 rolled over, said company played host to twelve suicide attempts on its Longhua campus, ten of which actually resulted in death. Now imagine someone forcing you to work for said company. Even more importantly, imagine that you're still just a 17-year-old student. (more)

'iPhone vs Android' report finds Apple has three times Google's market share

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2663 days, 2 hours, 53 minutes ago
Sunday, June 06, 2010 8:18:42 AM GMT
It's oftentimes easy for us to get swept up in Android mania and forget that Google's mobile platform is still in its infancy. Then we get cold hard numbers like these -- showing iPhone OS owning 28 percent of the US smartphone market and closing in on RIM's leading 35 percent -- and we face up to the realization that Android handsets still account for less than one in every ten smartphones owned by Americans today.

Verizon: No iPhone in Immediate Future

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2665 days, 3 hours, 40 minutes ago
Friday, June 04, 2010 7:31:36 AM GMT
On the heels of a rumor that Verizon Wireless is testing a CDMA-capable Apple iPad on its network, a spokesman confirmed that the company has no plans to support the iPhone "in the immediate future." Given that AT&T's exclusivity deal with Apple carries on until 2012, the news shouldn't be surprising. With that said, rumors of a Verizon iPhone could still come to fruition once the contract expires. (more)

Froyo Update: Carriers Control Who Has Tethering

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2678 days, 2 hours, 55 minutes ago
Saturday, May 22, 2010 8:16:16 AM GMT
We should have seen this one coming: that cool tethering feature Google is inserting into Android 2.2 (Froyo) will be controlled by carriers. Given that current Android owners are using tethering apps and (typically) not having to pay an extra fee, it was assumed that it would be more of the same with the new update--sans the 3rd-party software. Unfortunately, that's not the case. (more)

NVIDIA puts its Tegra 2 eggs in Android's basket, aims to topple Apple's A4

Monday, May 17, 2010 7:31:15 PM GMT
Microsoft's Kin One and Kin Two might not turn out to be the most auspicious devices for Tegra's debut in the smartphone arena, but NVIDIA seems to be learning from its mistakes. Admitting that the company committed too strongly to Microsoft with the first-gen iteration, Jen-Hsun Huang has now said that the second generation of Tegra will look to Android devices first and foremost.

Thursday, May 13, 2010 6:50:17 PM GMT
Google has a habit of giving future versions really tasty sounding codenames. Be it Cupcake, Éclair or Froyo, they all sound delicious. However, Froyo (that’s Android 2.2) is sounding more and more delicious by the day because when it hits my Nexus One, Android will be 450 percent faster than it is now. (more)
