Every day, Apple appears to add more iPhone tidbits to its Web site. Last week, we dissected the new iPhone commercials and tutorials, but this week, we're bringing you some simple iPhone eye candy. As we inch toward the release date on June 29, Apple releases more images that detail the handset's various functions. So to save you the trouble of looking for them on your own, we've assembled the shots here in our iPhone slide show.
Sony Ericsson today took the wraps off six new cell phones and three Bluetooth watches. The phones include two Walkman models, a Cyber-shot model for the North American market (yay!), a 3G handset for our European friends, a mid-range camera phone, and a basic mobile phone.
Sony Ericsson didn't just unveil new cell phones today, it also introduced three new Bluetooth watches. What's a Bluetooth watch, you ask? Quite simply, it's a watch with Bluetooth built in. And what do you use it for? Well, that's a better question.
Though "smart watches" came into vogue briefly in 2005, we haven't seen much timepiece technology since then. But Sony Ericsson decided to pump some new life into the sector with its MBY-150 series. Designed in partnership with Fossil, the three watches come in three versions: a "classic edition" … Read more
Sony Ericsson showed off a slew of sparkling new cell phones today including a Cyber-shot model for the North American market and a Walkman handset that could challenge the iPhone at its own game. We don't have pricing for any of the new phones just yet but they should be ready for sale in the second half of the year. See all of the phones in our slide show.
The Sony Ericsson W910 and W960 Walkman handsets are catching the most attention. They combine all the usual music features and high-end offerings of other Walkman but they raise the … Read more
Sprint has just released the Motorola Deluxe ic902, the latest in its line of PowerSource phones that combines the best of the Sprint and Nextel services. Weighing around 4.8 ounces, we wouldn't exactly call it a slim and stylish cell phone; it's more of a rugged and durable device made for industrial use. That said, the Deluxe ic902 does have quite a number of useful features. It utilizes Nextel for walkie-talkie services and Sprint for voice and data. The Deluxe ic902 is also the first to support Sprint's higher-end services like PowerVision--this means it has access … Read more
The American public will get its first chance to buy the iPhone at 6 p.m. in each local time zone, Apple confirmed Wednesday.
Somehow, I don't think Apple and AT&T will have two-for-one specials on the iPhone, but my New York-based colleagues will be the first to see how crowds react to the release of the iPhone at 6 p.m. ET. Those of us out here in California will have to wait until 6 p.m. our time for the official release of the phone, in yet another blatant example of East Coast bias.
And … Read more
Get ready for another wacky, or perhaps naughty, cell phone dangle from our friends in Japan. We've seen dangles of drunks and golden turds already, but now we turn our attention to Strapya-world's latest winner: "sexy underwear" dangles. For just $8.79 you, too, can attach a miniature piece of lingerie to your phone. The bras and panties (just for the record, I never thought I'd write those two words in a tech blog) are sold separately, but you can combine them to make a matching set. Styles include fairy garden, spear panther, midnight purple, … Read more
Sprint's Samsung UpStage remains one of the most interesting cell phones introduced this year. With its dual-sided design, it certainly stands out among the cell phone crowd. True, not everyone will love the constant flipping motion, but you have to give Samsung props for originality.
Today the UpStage received a breath of fresh air when Sprint and Samsung introduced a new version in bright red. All the features are the same, and you can get it from the bargain-basement price of $99 starting June 18.
As one might expect, I get a lot of press e-mails, and most of them fail to amuse me. That's not to say they're bad--many are quite useful and even interesting. Most of them are just not particularly funny. However, I'd be lying if I said I didn't get a chuckle out of one that I received this morning with the subject "Sprint's Pop 10 playlist." At first glance, it seemed innocuous enough, but then I got to the meat of the thing: the actual playlist. The title? Paris Hilton Goes to Jail...… Read more
