While all the guys on the Apple side of things are still getting all excited about the recently released Snow Leopard for their Macs, the Microsoft side has a little announcement of its own.

All AT&T Smartphone Users to Require Data Plans

If you’re in the market for a new smartphone from AT&T, but you’re not quite so interested in subscribing to a wireless data plan, I highly suggest that you act sooner rather than later. That’s because the iPhone-touting carrier is starting a new policy early next month that will require all new smartphones to come with a smartphone data plan. ...

Windows Mobile 6.5 and Windows Mobile 7 to Co-Exist?

Normally, when you see different versions of the same operating system, the assumption is that the bigger number is the newer one and probably the one that you want. With each successive iteration, you get new features and other improvements, so this only makes sense. Microsoft, however, seems to be taking a wholly different approach when it comes to its ...

New Symbian Smartphone Platform Offers Massive Change

As much as I like my Nokia E71 smartphone, I have to admit that the Symbian S60 v3 platform is incredibly dated. They tried to fix this, sort of, with the touchscreen-enabled S60v5, but that doesn’t really cut the mustard either. So, as we look forward to S60v4 (the number they skipped), we could be looking at a revolution. It ...

Personally, I’d much prefer to have a real smartphone, like something powered by BlackBerry or Android, but some people are more interested in getting a so-called feature phone instead. At the same time, they want some elements of the smartphone appeal. INQ is approaching this niche market with two brand new offerings that may look like smartphones, but they’re not. ...

While there are some signs that the economy might be turning itself around, many people are still struggling with the current financial situation. Verizon is apparently offering some recession relief by dropping the price on “almost all existing smartphones” to under $99. That sounds like a deal to me. If you’re looking to save a few bucks and have a ...

The Smaller Nokia N97 That Could Have Been

Even before it was officially released, the Nokia N97 was widely applauded as being a superphone, boasting features that set it at the top of the smartphone range.

Nokia may be the number one cell phone maufacturer in the world, but the Finnish company has yet to get the same kind of prominence in the United States as it has enjoyed in Europe and Asia. This is the land where the iPhone is currently reigning as king, but Nokia wants that to change in their favor. I remember ...

Dell Reminds Us of Their Smartphone Ambitions

The Dell Axim line of PDAs never really got the kind of market penetration that they were wanting, but the smartphone market could be a different beast altogether.

I guess you could say that I’ve always dared to be different. While many of my friends decided that either the iPhone or a BlackBerry was the best way to go, I decided to get a Nokia E71 smartphone instead. It’s a workhorse, but how does it compare to the shiny new Nokia N97? Mike Macias of E71 Fanatics had ...

Looking Forward to Standard 3.5mm Jacks for HTC Devices

htcjack1

In general, I’d say that I like most of the devices that come out of the HTC camp. My first real smartphone was an HTC and it was through HTC that we were initially introduced to Google Android. However, HTC is not without its quirks. For example, where are the 3.5mm headphone jacks? It seems that the people in Taiwan ...
