T-Mobile customers the wait is almost over. In just two more weeks the HTC Sensation will finally be available! Priced at $199 on a two-year contract after a $50 mail-in-rebate, the Sensation is T-Mobile’s strongest phone to date. In case you didn’t know the Sensation comes loaded with: a 4.3-inch qHD display, a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, auto-focus, and 1080p HD video recording. Did we also mention that the Sensation is running Android 2.3 out of the box? Full press release after the break.
What do you get when you take a Palm Pixi Plus and dress it up like a Palm Pre? You end up with an HP Veer 4G. When HP’s webOS hand was revealed , the Veer was definitely something different. With a 2.6-inch display and a tiny QWERTY slider, would it actually have relevance in a smartphone market flooded with 4-inch screens or larger? As we got more details on its hardware, we started to wonder if it would really be a player? Or was it destined for free phone on a contract glory? We’ve spent some quality time with the little bugger and have reached a verdict. Move past the break for our full review.
We’re halfway through 2011 and Samsung has showed no signs of slowing down and continues to consistently crank out quality smartphones. Their latest stateside effort the Infuse 4G will be AT&T’s first 21Mbps true HSPA+ (4G) handset, but is it fast enough? The Infuse’s 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display also tries to answer the questions, is bigger really better? Or is there such a thing as too much of a good thing? Over the past few days I’ve buddied up with this phone and really pushed it to its limits. Does the Infuse 4G have what it takes to be someone’s everyday phone? Or is it just another pretty face? Move past the break for my full review.
When people get to talking about mobile, we end up in a Android vs Apple flamewar. Some people quickly forget that there are three other major mobile operating systems currently in the game. Case in point, the HP Veer 4G is HP’s latest injection of webOS (2.1.1) into the mobile game. Smaller than most of the big screen giants flooding the market, the Veer’s display is a mere 2.6-inches. People say dynamite comes in small packages and we’ll be sure to test this proverb in our upcoming review.
Fresh from T-Mobile’s Twitter the soon to be acquired carrier is still stocking up their high-speed mobile data network. Pueblo, CO; Fort Myers, FL and Wilkes Barre-Scranton, PA are the latest to be added to Tmo’s 21Mbps network. So if you’re rocking one of their many 4G handsets, get ready for a boost in data speeds. If and when the AT&T buyout is complete, it will be interesting to see how thick AT&T’s coverage actually is. Currently T-Mobile’s HSPA+ is available in 170 markets in the US..
The old Danger Sidekick servers are going away never to return, but Sidekick fans rejoice! T-Mobile has finally come clean about the new Samsung built Android powered Sidekick 4G. As you can tell from the name this handset will be running on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ (4G). In regards to under the hood you’ll find some of the usual Samsung goodies: 1GHz Hummingbird processor, Android 2.2, 3.5″ WVGA touch display, 3-megapixel primary camera, VGA front facing camera, Samsung Media Hub, and Qik. Did we mention that they’ve done away with classic Sidekick swivel? That has been replaced with a new “pop-tilt” latch. This next gen Sidekick is also missing Samsung’s TouchWiz UI and will instead sport a restyled user interface. There still isn’t any word in regards to price, but being geared towards a teenage market, we expect somethings reasonable. We do know you’ll be able to choose from two colors: matte black or pearl magenta. Hey Snoop Dogg said it best, “everybody needs a Sidekick.”
It seems like just yesterday Samsung unleashed their Galaxy S 4G smartphone series on the consumer market. Pretty much each major carrier got their own version of the device but managed to keep a few similarities mainly: 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 5-megapixel camera, and a 4-inch Super AMOLED display. The biggest standout of the gang would have to be the Epic 4G which was exclusive to Sprint, mainly because the 4G connectivity via Sprint’s WiMax really gave it the extra boost. So here we are six months later and the Galaxy S series is still running wild like Hulkimania in the 80′s, but this time they’ve tacked on another 4G label giving T-Mobile customers the Galaxy S 4G. This makes us wonder will lighting strike twice for Sammy’s newest 4G cast member? Or is this handset nothing more than a Vibrant 2.0 with features that should have been there from day one? Move past the break for our full review.
Are you planning on picking up a Motorola Atrix next week? Guess what? In typical Android fashion it’s been rooted already! Those sneaks over at XDA already have a forum thread running with all the gory details. If successful, you’ll come away with a plethora of features available to root users. Now before you go slapping each other high fives, we must warn that the bootloader is still locked down. So for those of you dreaming of Vanilla Android on your powerful new hardware, keep dreaming. Motorola has a history of keeping things locked pretty tight, but remember the phone has already been partially cracked, so you never know.
First things first: The HTC Inspire 4G is an incredible handset. Sporting a 2nd generation Snapdragon processor clocked at 1Ghz Snapdragon, 768mb of RAM, an 8 megapixel shooter with dual LED flash, and a massive host of other features, the specs on this monster are just the tip of the iceberg. We’ve had the pleasure of spending the last few days putting this bleeding edge handset through some rigorous paces, and are pretty excited to be able to share some of our thoughts with ya. Hit the jump for our full HTC Inspire 4G review!
We’ve seen some good deals in our time, but this one just might take the cake. T-Mobile will be having a Valentine’s sale this Friday and Saturday like nothing we’ve really seen before. The mobile carrier will be offering all their handsets free of charge on contract. So if you’re looking to go to T-Mobile or even if you’re an existing customer who is eligible for an upgrade, that will also work too. Considering their phone roster: G2, myTouch 4G, HTC HD7, Samsung Vibrant, Nexus S, and a whole lot more, a two year commitment doesn’t sound too bad. Be sure to check with your local store to make sure they’re participating.
