We can finally put all the rumors to rest--the Palm Treo 755p is real, and it's officially arrived on Sprint's doorstep, looking all dapper in burgundy or midnight blue, might we add. The 755p will be available starting May 14 and replaces the older Treo 700p. The Palm-based smart phone not only sports a more compact form factor similar to that of its GSM cousin, the Treo 680, but it also brings a collection of small but notable enhancements--instant messaging and Google Maps for Mobile, just to name two. But are the extras enough to warrant the expensive $… Read more
Sony Ericsson today released three new cell phones that aim to capitalize on the still-hot thin handset craze. Two of the new models should make it to North American shores, while one model features two dazzling colors rarely seen in the mobile world.
The Sony Ericsson S500 features a 2-megapixel camera with a 4x zoom, a media player (though not a Walkman-branded one), a speakerphone, a memory card slot, and stereo Bluetooth. The S500 features a slider design that is 0.55 inch thick and is available in the very unique hues of mysterious green and spring yellow. We're … Read more
Along with Sony Ericsson's other announcements today, the company unveiled its fifth-generation P-series smart phone, the Sony Ericsson P1. The P1 is 25 percent smaller than its predecessor, the Sony Ericsson P990i, but that doesn't mean it skimps on features. The smart phone is based on the Symbian and UIQ operating systems and has a 2.6-inch touch screen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and push e-mail support for Exchange ActiveSync and BlackBerry Connect. Other goodies include a dual-function keyboard (like the one found on the Sony Ericsson M600i), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and VoIP support. The tri-band (GPRS 900/… Read more
Free shipping makes this a sweet deal for a 1 GB MicroSD flash memory card, key for holding all those tunes (and videos) on your cell phone.
Sony Ericsson just released the HBH-DS980, a brand new stereo Bluetooth headset that is a slight upgrade from the company's HBH-DS970. The pendant-style headset features a hidden OLED display underneath the device's smooth mirror finish that only lights up when activated. Other features are pretty much identical to the HBH-DS970--they include digital noise cancellation and echo reduction, plus it comes with three sizes of soft silicon ear buds for a better fit. It has a promised talk time of up to six hours and will be available some time in the third quarter of this year.
That loud creaking noise you hear is the sound of enormous floodgates opening: The era of the iPhone accessory has arrived.
Not even a full day has passed since we mentioned that the first cases for the iPhone were on the market, and already two more are supposedly rushing our way from an outfit called BeyzaCases. Gear Diary says these models come in leather and a lot more colors than the first batch.
Now can we please see the phone before we get any more accessories?
Each week, we track the most popular ringtones.

Now, by big and bad, we don't necessarily mean that in the "This phone is so rockin', it'll knock your socks off" kind of way. The Nokia N75 is big in the bulky sense and it's bad in that there are some major disappointments to this much-anticipated phone. Is it all bad? I mean, there's got to be a reason why there's been so much clamor for this phone since it was first introduced in September 2006, right? Well, we finally got our hands on one, so take a look through our photo … Read more
I don't know about you, but I'm more excited about the Helio Ocean than Apple's iPhone. Call me a heretic if you must, but I like a phone that has a QWERTY keyboard and 3G support but doesn't cost an arm and a leg. So, I was stoked to see a rumor that the Ocean will be launched as early as May 21.
I've missed plenty of calls when my cell phone has been in my pocket, so I can imagine that people who carry a phone in a purse or bag have the same problem. But with the Phoneflasher line of charms, missing calls can be a thing of the past.
Simply clip the trinket onto your purse and whenever you receive a call or text message, the charm wirelessly picks up the signal and flashes. The Web site offers no specifics on how this works, so you'll have to take the company's word for it.
You can choose … Read more
