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...

The Dual-Core HTC Vision?

The Dual-Core HTC Vision? I have to say I am thoroughly impressed and glad to see that T-Mobile will finally be bringing a true powerhouse phone into their market.

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...

Motorola Droid X Arrives Early?

Motorola Droid X Arrives Early? It seems a few lucky people in Texas received the Motorola Droid X a whole nine days before the scheduled launch date. Since Verizon did not allow pre-orders on the Motorola Droid X, it's hard to understand why or how did at least three people receive the highly anticipated Motorola Droid X so early. 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...

White HTC EVO 4G Already Available At Best Buy The HTC EVO 4G in white is supposed to be available starting July 11 in Best Buy.
