OK, it only took a year and a half, but I suppose it's better late than never. Tonight, AT&T and Motorola finally took the wraps off the Motorola Q9h Global, a long overdue GSM version of the Motorola Q. The quad-band Windows Mobile 6 smartphone isn't the same sleek device we saw in May 2006.
Like the Motorola Q9m for Verizon Wireless, it's bulked up a bit, but this allowed for a more spacious keyboard and added features. Like what? Well, how about built-in GPS, HSDPA, Bluetooth, and a 2-megapixel camera? Messaging is a top … Read more
Samsung today unveiled the SGH-A737 for AT&T. Yet another slim slider phone, the SGH-A737 is a 3G HSDPA cell phone that's compatible with AT&T's full range of 3G features including Cellular Video, AT&T Mobile Music and Video Share. The remaining features are about what you'd expect from a 4G handset; you'll find a 1.3-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, a speakeprhone, personal organizer applications, messaging, a digital music player and an external memory slot that can accommodate cards up to 4GB. The phone is available in lime, orange, red and blue … Read more
Pantech and AT&T have partnered up to launch the Pantech Duo today, available exclusively via AT&T. The new Windows Mobile 6 smartphone takes some design cues from its cousin, the Helio Ocean, with its dual-slider design. Yes, it sports both a slide-out number dialpad as well as a QWERTY keyboard. Features include quad-band support with HSDPA, access to AT&T's broadband services like Mobile Music and Cellular Video, stereo Bluetooth, and a 1.3-megapixel camera. It's currently available from AT&T for an introductory price of $199.99 with a two-year contract … Read more
Okay, I admit it: I want an iPhone.
I'm surrounded by them these days, it seems. On the bus. On the streets. At work. Everywhere I go, I see people pulling them out and the gadget hound in me is suffering a little bit.
Since the iPhone came out, and since Apple announced the iTouch, I've been parroting a standard line when anyone asks when--not if--I'm going to get one: I say, either when the iPhone is available on Verizon, my carrier, or when the iTouch has a 60 GB hard drive. Whichever comes first.
But, I … Read more
A simple plea to AT&T: Texts ARE data!
With that said, my travels ended and I got my first AT&T invoice from my far-flung travels. I managed to stick to a lean 15 MB of data used (both downloaded and uploaded) on the iPhone. I called stateside a handful of times using the international roaming plan, which reduced the charge per minute to $1.29 from $1.69. I found myself becoming the master of keeping calls from rounding up to the next chargeable minute (my average call time to the States was 2:59). In … Read more
LG sneakily showed off the LG CU515 last night to little fanfare, as the Venus and the Voyager took the limelight. It's a shame, because the LG CU515 is no slouch when it comes to features--not only is it packed with a 1.3-megapixel camera and a music player, it is also one of AT&T's new HSDPA phones. Clearly a successor to the LG CU500V, the LG CU515 is also compatible with AT&T's Video Share, letting customers share real-time streaming video with each other. The quad-band phone will also support AT&T'… Read more
