Is the Lancaster vaporware? Exclusive

Is the Lancaster vaporware?


Android Despite disappointing specs, HTC's Lancaster has a great form factor and lovely image. Perhaps most importantly, it represents the first chance for AT&T subscribers to nab an Android handset. Unfortunately, that chance has been pushed...

TomTom for Android Exclusive

TomTom for Android


Android TomTom has apparently "implied to Pocket-lint " that they will follow up on their successful iPhone software launch with a GPS navigation app for the Android Market. A TomTom exec named Benoit Simery told Pocket-lint, "We cannot ignore...

T-Mobile Pulse clears FCC Exclusive

T-Mobile Pulse clears FCC


Android While the banding isn't right for 3G speeds on T-Mobile US, a recent FCC filing shows the stamp of approval for "Model Number:T-Mobile Pulse/Pulse/U8220." I suppose it could be a T-Mo Europe phone to be re-branded for use on another...


Questioning the G1's future Updated

Questioning the G1's future


Android It's no secret that HTC's G1 - the first device to ship with Android - has become a hacker and modder playground. As far as I know, it is the most tweaked and twiddled phone in the annals of (somewhat) mainstream consumer-grade gadgetdom....

John's HTC myTouch 3G White review Popular

John's HTC myTouch 3G White review


3g The Sapphire has finally made it's way to the States. Is it worth the wait? What's good: *extremely* customizable - both inside and out, sleek design, excellent touch screen, the "with Google" brand means that it's open and ready for...

Super easy G1 hack Exclusive

Super easy G1 hack


Android I haven't had the chance to test this one out for myself yet but it looks pretty great. I think it's safe to say you shouldn't be running the auto-rooting app on your myTouch. From what I've read, that phone presents a different set of...

Sitting on the Samsung Mondi Exclusive

Sitting on the Samsung Mondi


Post I've been sitting on the Samsung Mondi for nearly a month now. In that time I've played with the device on two occasions. Each time, I wished for WiMAX coverage, and each time I went without. Samsung can hardly be blamed for poor...


What is Moto cooking for CTIA? Exclusive

What is Moto cooking for CTIA?


Android I should preface this post by clearly stating that I have no inside information on the gossip contained within. Outside of circumstantial evidence and the educated guesses of others, I have no special source with dirt on exactly what...

Dell's Benzine Android phone Exclusive

Dell's Benzine Android phone


Android It may sound like a cream for relieving athlete's foot, but Dell's Benzine is much more appealing a purchase. Leaked photos and rumors have been floating around for some time now, but it looks like we're starting to get some pretty solid...

Vote on the DroidDog logo!


Android Here they are, folks; the top 10 contenders in the DroidDog logo contest. With close to 200 entrants and several hundred submissions, it wasn't easy narrowing down the choices to a few that we at PhoneDog could agree on. There were so...


The Hero has been rooted Updated

The Hero has been rooted


Android This is a good day. As bad as it may sound to Aussies, I'm happy to announce that the Hero has been rooted. What does this mean? It means the phone can now be over-clocked (see comment by enlightener), apps can be run from the SD card,...







Qik: live-stream with Android Exclusive

Qik: live-stream with Android


Android I just live-streamed my first video with my G1, and wow, are my arms tired. Seriously though, despite the fuzzy audio and grainy image, it's a huge step for social interaction and broadcasting for the Android platform - especially since...

10 New Clearwire markets


4g Clearwire's WiMAX product, Clear, has had a bit of a rough time in its premier market of Portland, Oregon. Spotty coverage, dissatisfied customers bound by contractual agreements, and almost viral bad press speak louder than the billboards...
