Motorola expected to have Android 2.1 on Cliq and Cliq XT handsets by today, but it's unfortunately not going to happen.
A posting on Motorola's forum says that the company is working to deliver the "best possible user experience" as soon as it can and that sadly, it will miss its expected Q2 deadline. The handset maker has updated the status of the two phones to "testing in progress." I'm not exactly sure what that means, but I bet it's better than the "upgrade under evaluation" status that is … Read more
The 404 Podcast will never charge for premium content because the words "premium" and "The 404" have never occurred in the same sentence before, and besides, we're no Hulu, who just announced Hulu Plus, a premium subscription service that offers all-you-can-eat helpings of your favorite primetime shows from ABC, NBC, Fox, and other cable channels for $9.99 a month. In addition, Hulu Plus will also stream full back catalogs of shows like Glee and Saturday Night Live.
As expected, a minor software update began rolling out for the HTC Evo 4G on Monday. Designed to address Wi-Fi, battery performance, and Exchange features, the maintenance release was shelved as quickly as it started.
Reports started coming in almost immediately that handsets were acting up after the patch was installed. It's not known just how many devices were affected by the update, but it was enough to get the attention of Sprint and HTC. Sprint promised to look into the matter before pushing out further updates, and the company issued the following statement:
While the vast majority of … Read more
NEW YORK--Samsung has taunted us for days about its upcoming Galaxy S series, sending out mysterious packages and even releasing the identities and destinations of these Android phones. However, it's one thing to read about these devices, but it's another to actually see them up close.
On Tuesday evening, Samsung hosted an event in New York to introduce the entire Galaxy S series with remarks from J.K. Shin, president of Samsung's Mobile Communications Business, and Omar Khan, chief strategy officer for Samsung Telecommunications America.
The news conference was mostly a repeat of what we already know … Read more
Trust the world's largest phone maker to educate us on how to hold our phones the right way. The four methods highlighted include "thumb and finger," "the cup," "the balance," and, finally, "the four edge grip," which looks marginally ridiculous since hardly anyone holds their phones that way. I apologize if you're one of the people who does.
If you've been looking for a way to print from your iPad or iPhone without too many headaches, your prayers might have been answered--provided you've already invested in a Cloud Engines Pogoplug.
The plug-and-play device, which we've already reviewed in two different iterations, is a versatile box. It already turns USB hard drives into online-sharable volumes; streams music and photos to phones and the iPad; and can send video, music, and photos to an Xbox 360 or PS3.
Pogoplug cloud printing, available in a software update that hits later this summer, should work with all HP and … Read more
As we continue to test the iPhone 4, we're doing our best to track the handset's signal strength, particularly in light of the ongoing issues with the antenna. Though we've also noticed that we occasionally lose bars when we hold the iPhone 4 on its lower left side, the number of bars isn't the most accurate indicator of a cell phone's reception. For more details, we turned to the iPhone's Field Test indicator, but that option doesn't seem to be available on the iPhone 4.
Android users who have been waiting a long time to see an app for Amazon's Kindle electronic book reader can stop waiting, and start downloading.
While a little plain and slim on features, the free Kindle app for Android--available starting Monday--does its job as an e-book reader. Once you fire it up, it lets you shop for new books or download books you already bought.
Since Kindle is about book sales, the app lets you buy e-books through Amazon's online Kindle Store, where works typically sell for about $10 a piece. You can also send yourself the … Read more
Are you still having trouble trying to upgrade your iPhone or iPod Touch to Apple's new iOS 4? If so, here's a workaround that could help.
After Apple released iOS 4 on June 21, a small but significant number of folks anxious to upgrade started reporting various issues from long download times to error messages to backups that never seemed to finish. In my corner, I tried several times to update my iPod Touch 2G by following the standard steps, but without any success.
Each time I triggered the update, the software would start to back up my … Read more
