Motorola Teaser Vid for Upcoming Z12 Media Phone?

A Motorola teaser video popped up on YouTube, complete with people lugging around TVs, laptops, CDs and DVD players. The spot ends with the statement "It doesn't have to be this hard." Word on the 'nets is this vid is for Motorola's Z12 phone, which is said to have significant multimedia features (mobile video, 5 MP… » 2/04/08 7:59pm 2/04/08 7:59pm

Dell, Google May Make Joint Android/Google Phone Announcement at 3GSM

"Senior industry sources" are making the bold claim that Dell and Google are going to announce a joint effort to make THE GOOGLE PHONE at the 3GSM conference in February. That sounds unlikely to us, and with Dell's history of putting their name on other people's gadgets (the iPod, for example), if anything it's… » 1/30/08 4:15pm 1/30/08 4:15pm

My favorite 3GSM iPod Substitute: More Shots of the Sony Ericsson w880…

In my mad dash to get to Spain (I had a little over 24 hours to pack, find a hotel, etc), I forgot to charge my iPod. Now if I woulda had one of these mobiles by my side, everything would've been alright. Granted, none of these phones would have lasted me the full 6+ hour flight from NY to Barcelona, but they… » 2/16/07 7:04am 2/16/07 7:04am

Big and Proud: More Impressions of the Nokia e90 and the iMate Ultimate

I'm pretty superficial when it comes to my cell phones. I like them thin and stylish—drop them in your pocket and forget they're there. They gotta be smart too, I won't settle for any crap interface (although since I'm on Verizon, that's tough to do). So you'd think I'd be all over Samung's new Ultra series, right.… » 2/16/07 5:57am 2/16/07 5:57am

3GSM 2007: I Heart Motorola's Z8 Banana-Slider and Q9 Smartphone

Without a doubt, the Moto Q9 and the Z8 were the stars of Motorola's 3GSM booth. As a current Q owner, I can say the Q9 has some nice improvements. Most noticeably is the new QWERTY keyboard, which is spaced slight differently than the Q's, but just as comfortable to use. I'm not a fan of sliders, but the Z8 is also… » 2/15/07 12:31am 2/15/07 12:31am

3GSM: Battle of the Rotating Cellphone Screens

Look, we know these aren't coming to the US. But Asia's TV phones are too beautiful to not at least gawk over. And at 3GSM, there were plenty of mobiles with flipping, sliding, rotating screens, with my personal (clamshell) favorites being Sharp's AQUOS phone (which we had seen before) and NTT DoCoMo's upcoming F903iX… » 2/14/07 8:40pm 2/14/07 8:40pm

Heavy Breathing with NTT DoCoMo's Alcohol Phone

We've shown you NTT DoCoMo's breathalayzer cell phone before, but here it is in the flesh at 3GSM. The phone is aimed at limosuine and bus companies, so unless you're a true alchie who needs to be told when it's ok to drive, you're not getting this phone. So we decided to put it to the test and see how sober (or… » 2/14/07 7:30pm 2/14/07 7:30pm

iMate's Ultimate Series Run WM6 and Feature VGA Screens

Looks like HTC's X7500 might have met its match. This beauty here is iMate's Ultimate 7150. A tablet/handheld/UMPC type smartphone that not only runs Windows Mobile 6, but also rocks the eye candy with a nice 3.8-inch VGA screen. The GSM/EDGE phone supports HSDPA connectivity and comes with built-in Wi-Fi and… » 2/14/07 1:18pm 2/14/07 1:18pm
