Posted on May 31, 2010 | No CommentsI dedicate this next post to all the budget-minded Windows Mobile fans out there. Here's looking at you, kids. We just got word that the LG Fathom will be released on June 3rd. For those not in the know, the Fathom is the last of its kind: a 1GHz Windows Mobile 6.5 powered handset. Other features include a dazzling 3.2MP autofocus camera (sans flash, it seems), QWERTY keypad, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, and a 3.2" screen of unknown resolution.
Posted on May 29, 2010 | No Commentslast year, but the official Skype app has been a notable holdout. Now, two months after Skype started doing 3G calls on Android with Verizon, there's a 2.0 version of the app for iPhone that brings voice calls over 3G at last. Mobile iPhone calls are free until August, after which you'll need a "mobile subscription." We're testing out the app as we write this and it seems to work about as well any other 3G VoIP app we've tried: passable, not revolutionary.

Posted on May 17, 2010 | No CommentsLTE handsets in the first half of 2011, but as we're rounding third base toward the launch of Big Red's first commercial 4G markets, it's shedding a little more light on how it thinks this'll all go down. Basically, wireless chief Lowell McAdam says we can expect "up to" five handsets by May of 2011, exactly a year from now -- which could mean anywhere between zero and five, as far as we're concerned -- and that Motorola, LG, HTC, and RIM are all in the running to serve up that first volley of hardware. What's not clear is whether these will make voice calls over CDMA exclusively (a la EVO 4G) or if they'll be compliant with the IMS-based (and GSMA-friendly) voice the company expects to eventually roll out on top of its LTE network, but either way, it's good news.
Turning our attention to Verizon's recent tablet hullabaloo, McAdam says that although "there's no reason [the company] couldn't have an iPad," the first tablets it offers will be Android-based -- yes, "tablets" plural -- and that most of them will launch in the fourth from companies "including Motorola, Samsung and LG." Interestingly, this dovetails rather conveniently with an NVIDIA-powered Motorola tablet with Verizon branding that was briefly (and quietly) shown off at CES this January, so we wouldn't be surprised if that was the unit we ended up getting. None of these devices might end up with the iPad's name recognition, obviously, but an LTE-powered Android tablet with HTC's good design sense certainly can't hurt.Permalink | Email this | Comments
Posted on April 13, 2010 | No CommentsRumours abound that the AT&T Network is down in the Seattle area. The outage seems to be affecting voice calls. Service has been trickling back to some users over the last half hour, and rebooting has fixed it for some people, but others are still out. How’s it going for you? If you lost service service today, [...]

Posted on September 8, 2009 | No CommentsHTC’s naming conventions are kind of funny.

The Tattoo runs the Sense UI, which is great++ and it has a 3.2 megapixel camera, 3.5mm headset jack, and MicroSD memory [...]
