The Alcatel-made T-Mobile Sparq is a QWERTY feature phone for those looking for the utmost in simple keybaord communication.
Looking to broaden and monetize its mobile audience, the Internet giant acquires a platform that lets users jump between apps on their smartphones.
Shh! The T-Mobile Sparq is an already-announced off-contract messaging phone that got lost in the shadows of the show.
Although announced months ago, CES 2012 was the first chance we got to see the simple, prepaid messaging phone.
T-Mobile's Sparq is more than just a messaging phone; it's also Alcatel's first handset with a major U.S. carrier.
The portable storage shows major gains?but that's not hard to do when you're at a buck a share and you look like a takeover target.
SyQuest signed a three-year agreement with Compaq to include the former's 1GB Sparq removable cartridge hard drive into machines made under Compaq's newly announced configure-to-order scheme. The agreement with the world's largest PC maker is a significant win for SyQuest, at the expense of Iomega. High-capacity cartridge drives like the Sparq and the Zip drive are increasingly replacing floppies.
While trying to revitalize sales by cutting prices, Iomega faces many challenges in going for profitability and growth.
Iomega discounts its 1GB Jaz while rolling out a 2GB version, as well as a package that allows users to edit digital content on their PCs.
The market is awash with announcements of consumer-friendly technology in advance of Comdex.
