Rogers Reduced cost of many Android Phones

Rogers Reduced cost of many Android Phones To all you out there unfamiliar with our Canadian brethren (eh?) Rogers is the big honcho cell phone carrier up there.

Pants + American Eagle = Free Phone?

Pants + American Eagle = Free Phone? I think I might cry. I mean the idea of a free phone is great but coercing  myself into an American Eagle store is another matter entirely. Anyway, the jist here folks is that you enter American Eagle on July 21st, try not buy a pair of jeans (though they would prefer the latter), and then select from a group of about 40 phones to take home with you. A few of these handsets will be Android phones which means you can pick from a pretty sweet lin...

The New iPhone is Out…Android Still Kicks A$$

The New iPhone is Out…Android Still Kicks A$$ Well lookie here. The PC bashing giant Apple released their new hot summer toy: the iPhone 4G. Sure we could point to the iTampon, oops, I mean iPad but it's mostly just a glorified iPhone with a giant screen. In any case, I must say the iPhone has gotten quite the revamp. Now it has HD recording at 720p, video calling, a very high resolution screen at 640x960, a 1GHz processor, expanded battery life and storage. Pretty impressive to say the leas...

I have heard everything from this being a dual-core 800 MHz ARM processor to a 1 GHz Snapdragon, but which ever way it goes the phone will certainly be powerful. T...

It seems that if you inquire enough about the product, and the sales rep happens to be working on a Friday (or is about to get off from work) he...
