Dreaming on the Android-Powered HTC Dream

Image_5047_tmimage.jpg

Ever since I took that quantum leap into the world of smartphones, I haven’t looked back. I just can’t imagine owning a regular mobile phone anymore, because it simply cannot offer the same level of functionality.

Image_5788_superimage.jpg

The iPhone 3G from Apple has been out for two weeks now and it’s still the talk of the town. Unless you’re willing to settle for the 8GB model, it’s still pretty tough to get your hands on one. It certainly helps on the Canadian side of things that Rogers is offering an option where […]
