This is a bit troubling, particularly since it affects one of the better (or so we thought) T-Mobile phones that we've seen this year. On Thursday, the carrier suspended sales of the Nokia 5610 Xpress Music.
According to T-Mobile, a "very small" percentage of devices suffer from a defective component that causes the display to go blank. We didn't see such a problem on our review device, but if you're stuck with one of the faulty phones you can contact T-Mobile to "discuss available options" (whatever that means). Nokia has otherwise done a decent job with its Xpress Music phones, so we hope the problem stops here. The full text of the T-Mobile statement is after the jump. … Read more
If you're buying a budget computer, it's worth your time to look into the Compaq Presario SR5610f desktop. It's not far off from a barebones machine, and you don't get a ton of extra features, but the price is so low that it's hard to complain. You get a dual-core 2.5GHz AMD processor, 3 gigs of ram, an integrated video card, and a 320GB hard drive, which should be enough power to get you through the standard applications, stuff like word processing, streaming video, mp3 playback, etc...but you definitely shouldn't expect it … Read more
We've known it was coming for a long time, but only Monday did T-Mobile come clean by announcing the Nokia 5610 Xpress Music. As the big brother to the previously released Nokia 5310 Xpress Music, the 5610 offers an upgraded and music-friendly feature set in a slider design with a brilliant display.

Unlike the original model, the T-Mobile 5610 doesn't support … Read more
Nokia shot to center stage of cell phone land today by unveiling a gallery of new handsets and services at an event in London. We can't get across the pond to cover the news in person (though we did get a very short preview of the handsets last week), but we'll bring you the highlights here. Be sure to click through to read more details on each announcement. Or if you prefer pretty pictures, take a gander at our slide show.
Crave has made no secret of its love for Nokia's Xpress Music phones. And what's not to love? Both the 5300 and the 5700 are fun, stylish handsets that offer excellent features and superior performance. In fact, our biggest disappointment was that Nokia seemed to be dragging its feet in introducing more Xpress Music models.
So you can imagine that were excited to learn that our wishes had been fulfilled. Today in London, Nokia unveiled two new 5310 and 5610 Xpress Music phones. Though they take a different design approach, the phones offer similar high-end multimedia and connectivity … Read more
