The news that Windows Phone 7 won't be coming to any CDMA carriers just yet has some of you close to suicide. That's extreme. Just wait for LTE. It'll happen.

CNET did not review the Samsung LNC670 series of LCD TVs, which includes the 40-inch LN40C650 and the 46-inch LN46C650, but we did review the LNC630 series, which is similar.
The major feature-related differences between the two series are the inclusion of Samsung's Apps platform and a glossy screen on the C670, which also has a red-tinted frame. The contrast ratio specification of the LNC670 is also slightly higher, but we don't expect that to have a major impact on picture quality.
Aside from these differences, we expect the full review of the Samsung LNC630 series to provide … Read more

Beyond the obvious need for both a CDMA and a GSM version of the Tab, in order to work with … Read more
Samsung Galaxy Tab pricing shows up on Amazon UK, and it's well over a thousand dollars U.S., presumably to force you toward subsidized prices so you'll end up paying the same amount or more for with-contract tablets. Which ... seriously? No. Also, Craigslist says the adult services section is gone for good, and Google's music service appears to be imminent--much to Spotify's demise--er, dismay.Subscribe: iTunes (MP3) | iTunes (320x180) | iTunes (640x360) | RSS (MP3) | RSS (320x180) | RSS (640x360)… Read more

Exact pricing for the new device isn't yet known, but Hankil Yoon, an executive at Samsung, recently told … Read more
Anyone who's ever been locked into a two-year contract with a carrier can appreciate the freedom of a prepaid phone, and anyone who's ever experienced one of those devices on a network with a so-so spectrum can appreciate a prepaid option from tier-one operators like T-Mobile.

The t369 comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 1.3-megapixel camera with video recorder, Bluetooth support, and a microSD slot good for 16GB expandable memory. There's also a WAP browser, a music player, and instant messaging apps.
