Kyocera Hyrdo Hands-on

Earlier this morning at CTIA we saw Kyocera announce two new devices, the Kyocera Hydro and the Kyocera Rise. The aim of these devices was pretty evident, featuring 3.5-inch displays it was rather obvious that they weren't debuting some flagship devices, but that also doesn't mean that we should...

Six stages in the production of the HTC One S

The introduction of micro-arc oxidation on the HTC One S has been one of the more interesting (and controversial) moves in the smartphone manufacturing process. As you'll recall, the MAO treatment basically fries the aluminum shell in 1.21 Gigawats of electricity, changing the metal into a near-...

We’re here in New Orleans on the eve of CTIA, and Verizon has the next star in their lineup on-hand. The Droid Incredible 4G LTE made its rounds tonight, and from our short but sweet time with the device, we really like what we see. The next-gen Incredible is what would happen if the Droid line...

While the show down here at CTIA doesn't officially open until tomorrow, the folks at MasterCard held an event this evening to let us in on some of their big news that they have coming. It has become very obvious that people want to be able to quickly and easily pay for things, they want a one...

Ice Cream Sandwich on the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note at CTIA

We've recently seen a leaked build of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note. But how about something a little more official? We're at AT&T's get-together at CTIA in New Orleans, and on its demonstration Galaxy Note is none other than Android 4.0.3.  A quick spin...

From the Editor's Desk: A look back at London, a look ahead to New Orleans

The Samsung Galaxy S III event has come and gone. Some say that's true about the phone as well, that it's so disappointing it's done before ever getting off the ground. Of course, many of the people saying that have yet to actually touch or use the Galaxy S III. Not that you shouldn't be able to...

CTIA Day 2 keynote: EA, Mozilla, Spotify and Visa

We've already mentioned that the CEOs of the Big 4 carriers will do a Day 1 afternoon roundtable at CTIA in May, and that former president Bill Clinton will speak on Day 3. And that means we'd better share the Day 2 lineup, which was just announced and includes Spotify CEO and founder Daniel Elk,...
President Bill Clinton

Some guy to give Day 3 keynote at CTIA

Maybe you've heard of him? Former president Bill Clinton is scheduled to give the Day 3 keynote at CTIA in New Orleans in May. He'll "share his unique perspective on preparing leaders to meet the challenges of global interdependence and implementing innovative solutions to some of the world's most...

CEOs of the Big 4 set to hit the keynote stage at CTIA in May

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! One of our favorite things from last spring's CTIA show was when the CEOs of Sprint, Verizon and AT&T took the stage together in the Day 1 keynote for a pretty candid discussion, made even more interesting because it was just days after AT&T had announced it...

Pantech Pocket hands-on

We broke the mold at CTIA today and got a look at something a bit different than what we're all used to: the Pantech Pocket, announced by AT&T earlier this week. It's a square device, but being a square isn't always that bad. The 4-inch, 600 x 800 display is unique in the Android space and...

Sneak peek at an Android-based Philips Go Gear Connect Prototype

Here's a sneak peek at a prototype of what is tentatively being called the Philips Go Gear Connect. It's very much a pre-release product -- so new they didn't even have any real specs to give us. But through our keen sense of deduction we were able to surmise that it's running Gingerbread, has a...
Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 hands on

Remember the Galaxy Players that Samsung sprung on the world at their Galaxy Tab 8.9 unveiling late last month? Well, we got our hands on the 5-inch model again tonight here in San Diego, and we still like what we see. A refresher: the Galaxy Players are basically Android phones minus the phone....

Motorola Atrix 2 hands on

The "white whale" at this year's CTIA is the Motorola Atrix 2, the recently announced successor to the Atrix heading to AT&T on October 16. We got our hands on one at tonight's Pepcom event here in San Diego, and we're excited about what we saw. While the Atrix 2 might not be enough for owners...

Cadillac unveils its Cadillac CUE infotainment system; we take it for a spin

Youtube link for mobile viewing Cadillac took the wraps off of its new Cadillac CUE infotainment system on Tuesday in San Diego. We're not, strictly speaking, looking at an Android product here. (Though it does run Linux, so that's close enough, right?) But it absolutely concerns your Android...
Samsung Transfix

Hands-on with the Samsung Transfix

Here we go with the Samsung Transfix, Cricket Communications' new 3.2-inch Android 2.3 slider. In all respects it's a fairly benign phone. Fast enough with an 800 MHz processor, a stock Gingerbread experience, and the four-row QWERTY keyboard is of the usual Samsung fare. The buttons are flat and...
Samsung Stratosphere

Hands-on with the Samsung Stratosphere

The Samsung Stratosphere made a brief cameo at CTIA today, two days ahead of its official launch on Verizon, and we were there to catch all of it's full QWERTY, LTE goodness. The Stratosphere is Big Red's first LTE slider, and if you've ever encountered Sprint's Epic 4G, you'll know what to expect...
T-Mobile Springboard with Google

Hands-on with the T-Mobile Springboard with Google

Here's our first look at the lastest in the line of 7-inch Android Honeycomb tablets -- the T-Mobile Springboard with Google. Not a whole lot here you haven't seen before. It's Honeycomb (Android 3.2, to be exact), and it's 7 inches. Nothing's really been customized, though you've got a wealth of...

Hands-on with the AT&T Impulse 4G

Youtube link for mobile viewing And here we have the AT&T Impulse 4G from Huawei. It's a nice little entry-level phone, with a 3.8-inch display running Android 2.2. Not a whole lot to say -- it's snappy enough and has a 5MP camera. And while being a little portly, it still feels pretty good in...
