Dell Mini 3i Smartphone is official

Posted by ctitanic (left mobilitysite) on Aug 17, 2009 | 1 Comment

Finally. After 1,999 different rumors over the last 5 years, Dell has finally launched a phone. It was on display in China for the launch of China Mobile’s new Application Platform that offers music, video, and app downloads to mobile phones. The 3.5-inch 360 x 640 pixel device with capacitive touchscreen was on display in China running the Android-based Open Mobile System (OMS). The Mini 3i was on-hand as part... 

Dropping Phone Sales? Get Smart.

Posted by Zealot on Aug 12, 2009 | 2 Comments

According to Gartner, the global economy is taking a bigger and bigger bite out of feature phone sales. They are reporting that as found by their recent study, just over 286 million handsets were sold in the second quarter worldwide this year, down 6.1% from the same quarter last year. This deepens the gloom from the first quarter of this year, which saw 9.4% decline. This is now officially the worst slump in mobile... 

AT&T “Warhawk” Hits The FCC

Posted by Sam Hobson on Jul 31, 2009 | 2 Comments

I haven’t cared too much about the HTC Touch Diamond 2 since I heard about the Omnia with AT&T 3G, but I’m sure everyone else would be happy to know that AT&T’s version of the Touch Diamond 2, aka the Warhawk, has just gone into the FCC for approval.  Release dates aren’t certain, but Engadget estimates a September release. via Engadget AKPC_IDS += "26670,"; Read More →

Omnia II Stuff

Posted by Sam Hobson on Jul 29, 2009 | 1 Comment

Now I really hope the Omnia II comes to AT&T.  I just learned some interesting things about it from reading pocketnow.com.  For one thing, Outlook Mobile is skinned.  I knew the calendar and other apps were skinned, but I didn’t know Outlook was skinned as well.  Hopefully it has improved folder browsing in IMAP, because that was kind of a painful task in regular Outlook Mobile. Another nice... 

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 On Video

Posted by Sam Hobson on Jul 27, 2009 | 3 Comments

Browsing Engadget (yet again), I came across this rather boring quiet video demo of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2.  Despite being very boring quiet, it did show some cool features of the device.  WinMo 6.5, what appears to be improved Panels, a cool looking weather app and so on.  This phone seems to have much to offer.  And it looks just flat out cool.  I may reconsider on the Omnia II…………nah.   I... 

Toshiba TG01s Sick in Germany

Posted by Zealot on Jul 15, 2009 | 3 Comments

Apparently now you don’t even need to hit the internet before your brand new device can be infected with a virus. O2 in Germany has confirmed that it has stopped shipping the Snapdragon-based Toshiba TG01 smartphones because in addition to it’s other killer features the handset comes with a virus built right in, standard. No need to download it yourself, it is right there when you configure the phone. Now THAT is... 

HTC Windows Mobile 6 and 6.1 devices vulnerable to bluetooth attacks!

Posted by Taylor Scott on Jul 14, 2009 | 5 Comments

I was browsing my latest tweets on Twitter, when an interesting article caught my attention. Me being an HTC FUZE user my self, I found my self reading the article, and figured this was something that all HTC users needed to be aware of. I will give most of the article, but if you wish to read the actual article, for more info click here. If you have an HTC smartphone running Windows Mobile 6 or Windows Mobile 6.1, you... 

Why carry a smartphone & an MP3 player?

Posted by Julie on Jul 08, 2009 | 22 Comments

Yesterday this post by adamzea on Twitter got me thinking because most of the time I’m one of those silly people that carry a Smartphone and an MP3 player (specifically, a  Zune).  I used to wonder the same thing as Adam, but that changed last Fall when I was gifted with a Zune.  So the question then is, “Why carry both?” My answer to Adam’s question is “I know my Smartphone can play music... 

Google, Exchange Living In Perfect Harmony

Posted by Sam Hobson on Jul 07, 2009 | 4 Comments

In the past, there was (supposedly) a rule about Android phones and custom builds.  The rule was that any phone running a customized build of Android cannot have the Google branding on it.  Since Exchange support wasn’t in Android by default, a version of Android with Exchange was customized.  Therefore an Android phone with Exchange couldn’t have a Google logo on it. T-Mobile’s myTouch3G seems to contradict... 

Sony Ericsson’s ”Rachael”, another Android phone coming soon

Posted by ctitanic (left mobilitysite) on Jul 06, 2009 | 7 Comments

There is not any doubt that Android will be one of the OS more used in the next generation of phones coming to market.  The Sony Ericsson’s Rachel is one of the best equipped phones that I have seen so far with a processor running at 1 GHz.  …the phone is based on the Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon chip, which means it can get speeds up to 1 GHz, and HSPA-speeds up to 7.2 Mbps. There’s also an 8MP camera... 

Krusell’s Top Phones for June

Posted by Zealot on Jul 05, 2009 | 5 Comments

Mobile device case company Krusell has released it’s list of the top selling cases for the month of June. This is usually a pretty good indicator of how well phones are really selling in the field. Last month, Nokia utterly dominated, taking the first three spots. Not so this month. They still take five out of ten overall, but in the top three they are joined by Apple’s iPhone (likely due to the 3GS excitement) and... 

T-Mobile Touch Pro2 Delayed So Android Can Look Good

Posted by Sam Hobson on Jul 05, 2009 | 5 Comments

According to pocketnow.com, the T-mobile version of HTC’s Touch Pro2 has been delayed.  Why?  Because T-Mobile is afraid the Touch Pro2 will overshadow the MyTouch3G phone.  The phone has been pushed back from a late July release to August 12.  The MyTouch3G is set to be released on August 5.  That gives the MyTouch3G about a week to get some sales before the Touch Pro2 comes and steals the... 

How To Carry Extra Memory/SIM Cards When You Use a Holster

Posted by Bruce Atkinson on Jul 04, 2009 | 5 Comments

I recently switched from an HP 111 to a Tilt.  I prefer holsters and I purchased one for the Tilt.  One problem though, the holster doesn’t have card holder like a leather case does.  With the holster I no longer have a place to carry my On Course Navigator microSD card and an additional SIM card that I have. I searched around for a solution and I finally found the Proporta Aluminum Memory/SIM Holder. It is... 

TuneWiki for BlackBerry

Posted by Steve Laser on Jun 30, 2009 | 11 Comments

I’ve had enough of iPhone this and iPhone that.  Let’s talk cool apps for your BlackBerry, shall we?  Gear Diary reported that TuneWiki is available for the BlackBerry.  What is TuneWiki?  It’s a website that plays music of your choice and displays lyrics.  It’s a community forum.  It displays maps that show what other users are listening to.  It may still be...

A portable scanner in my pocket! (or faxing from a mobile device)

Posted by Julie on Jun 25, 2009 | 10 Comments

I’ve been exploring creative ways to use the camera on my Windows Mobile device to boost my productivity.  Qipit provides a way to copy and email or fax documents to anyone at any time from any web enabled mobile device.  Qipit works from any mobile device that has a web browser and is not limited to windows mobile handhelds, iphones or any other mobile device.  Qipit is almost like having a scanner... 

Agendus for Blackberry v. Pocket Informant for Blackberry

Posted by Steve Laser on Jun 08, 2009 | 5 Comments

PI icon top right, Agendus icon middle right I recently received a Blackberry 8350i for work, and like Windows Mobile, the built in Contact Manager is inadequate.  There are separate modules for each function.  If you want to make an appointment you must open the calendar.  To view contacts you must open contacts.  These two suites I am reviewing combine all the functions into one program. ... 

Palm Pre fans line up to buy the new smartphone

Posted by CodeBubba on Jun 07, 2009 | 3 Comments

Saturday was the day for fans of the Palm Pre – Palm’s hot up-and-coming SmartPhone.  One of the guys I work with has been really anticipating getting his – his computer has has screen-saver pictures of the device for weeks! The reviews of the device seem to be mixed.  The new “Web O/S” is said to be pretty impressive.  The device itself is supposed to be pretty nice as well though maybe a little lightweight... 

What is Doodle?

Posted by Jack Cook on Jun 03, 2009 | 7 Comments

That is what I said when I first heard of it.  Of course I was thinking of what I used to do during those long boring lectures I had to attend in school but in fact  it is something much more useful and certainly productive.  Doodle is a means of helping you find dates and times for group events (like an appointment, a conference call, a family get-together) and it is incredibly easy to use!  And BTW,... 

A Mobile Version of Bing

Posted by Jack Cook on Jun 03, 2009 | 6 Comments

BaDa (Mobile) Bing! Recently Microsoft introduced their  NEW search called Bing and my guess is that many, if not all of you, have tried it.  So far, I’ve been really pleased with the results and in fact it has been the ONLY Search Engine that I have been using since its introduction.  That is not because I think it is the best but rather because I really want to give it a good workout.  So to...
