Posted on June 24, 2010 | No Commentssmartphone market share: that's where Samsung plans to be, on triple its current handset volume, by the end of 2010 according to Lee Donjoo, senior VP of the company's Mobile Communications division. Mind you, such a jump would be staggering in terms of growth with Samsung owning less than 5% of global smartphone market share currently. A move to 10% would place them at number 4 globally according to IDC's numbers, behind Nokia, RIM, and Apple. The Android-lovin' Galaxy S / AT&T Captivate is good, but is it that good? We'll see. Regardless, the term "smartphone" can be defined many ways, and we suspect that Samsung's new Bada OS being pushed into devices previously classified as featurephones could help pad Samsung's numbers.Permalink | Email this | Comments
Posted on June 18, 2010 | No CommentsApparently the Doctor has fallen on hard times, because Bonhams (who else would he trust) is auctioning off the TARDIS used by the 9th Doctor, Christopher Eccleston. Unfortunately, the chameleon circuit on this TARDIS is stuck so it still looks like a police box, but it is larger on the inside, of course.
Posted on June 10, 2010 | No CommentsSteve Jobs gave us a little sneak peak at Time's upcoming iPad app during the iPhone 4 keynote. Here's a full video demo. It's the future -- and very ambitious one at that. Time definitely improved on the current iPad app. Too bad it's still $5 an "issue."
Posted on June 9, 2010 | No Commentsfootsteps of AT&T, O2 has today announced it'll allow current customers to pay off the remainder of their contracts at a discounted rate when they re-up with the network for the iPhone 4. Irrespective of how much you're paying now, the UK carrier will charge you a flat rate of £20 ($29) for each leftover month. Considering most iPhone users rock out at £30 and above, that's a solid 30 percent discount (or contract amnesty, however you wanna view it) for the impatient types. Of course, you'll be trading away your usual 14-day cooling off period if you take them up on this deal, so you'd better make doubly sure you want the iPhone 4 on O2 before taking the plunge.Permalink | Email this | Comments
Posted on June 9, 2010 | No CommentsOne of the neat-o features introduced in Android 2.2 (or Froyo) is "Chrome-to-Phone", which gives the ability to take what you're viewing in the Google Chrome browser (on your PC/Mac), and push it straight to your Froyo phone. I've not yet seen this in person, though, because I'm stuck on a pre-Froyo build of Android. Which sucks. But today, that changes: I found someone that -- like me -- was longing for some Chrome-to-Phone action on their Android 2.1 phone. Unlike me, however, they did something about it. And so I introduce to you LinkPush: the Chrome-to-Phone alternative for the rest of us.
Posted on June 7, 2010 | No CommentsiPhone 4 at a discounted rate. Lucky for you, Apple and AT&T have worked to give folks like you a little leniency, with existing AT&T users able to upgrade to the iPhone 4 "up to six months early." In other words, if your current contract expires at any point in 2010, you're now eligible to grab an iPhone 4 at $199 (16GB) or $299 (32GB) so long as you agree to stay faithful to a carrier you may or may not loathe for another two years. Good thing you've got until the 24th to really think it over.Permalink | Email this | Comments
Posted on June 3, 2010 | No Commentsthe AT&T incident this week, it probably behooves said CEOs (and / or their assistants) to earn some PR brownie points by responding with a positive attitude. Take this response from Sprint boss Dan Hesse, for example, in reply to a request that the company "keep [its] great pricing and customer service, and most importantly -- keep unlimited data." In short, Hesse says "one can never say 'never,' but [the company] has no current plans to change our pricing." That's certainly the "correct" thing to say coming off AT&T's big strategy shift toward killing unlimited and hints from Verizon that it'll do the same, but whether Sprint is able to hold the line when the WiMAX airwaves are flooded with EVO 4Gs and EVO 4G-like devices is another matter altogether. We'll see.

Posted on June 3, 2010 | No CommentsWaaay back in February, we told you guys a tale of the HTC Scorpion, a mighty beast of a phone. Packing Android 2.2 and a 1.5 Ghz (!) processor, it could very well be the phone that everyone lusts over after their love for the current king, the EVO 4G, tapers. Take it as you will for now, but we just got a heads up from a generally well-informed source that the Scorpion is headed for.... [insert drumroll here]
Posted on May 28, 2010 | No CommentsThe idea of putting iPhone apps on the Apple TV has been something some of us have been thinking about since at least 2008, when the original App Store launched. When rumors were swirling about Google TV, it became an even better idea as the living room was likely to be a new battleground for Apple/Google. And with the unveiling of Google TV last week, it became clear that this would be a next major fight -- provided Apple started taking it seriously. Soon, they will be, if Engadget's sources are correct. The gadget blog says that a tip they've since confirmed with "a source very close to Apple" suggests that Apple has been working on the next version of the Apple TV. The goods according to them: it will be a very small box (smaller than the current one) with perhaps only outputs for power and TV-out cables. It will run on Apple's new A4 chip (the one found in the iPad and soon the new iPhone). It will still do 1080p video, but may have as little as 16GB of flash memory. That's because the thing will be based around streaming over the cloud (or from other computers in your home) rather than local storage. Most significantly, it will run the iPhone OS.
