iPhone 4 and iOS App Store Set Various Guinness World Records

Apple's iPhone 4 has just made its way into the Guinness Book of World Records 2011 Gamer Edition. According to Guinness, the iPhone 4 was the fastest selling portable gaming system in history. We're not surprised to be honest. The iOS AppStore too has received recognition for being the most popular application marketplace. Guinness said in an official statement - "For comparison, the PSP shifted 200,000 units on its launch date in 2005, and the DS took a week to move 500,000 consoles in … [Read more...]

T-Mobile G2X Priced as Low as $79.99 on Contract via Amazon

The T-Mobile G2x features a dual-core Tegra 2 CPU, but the prices it is being listed for doesn't seem to suggest so. Earlier, the G2x was priced at about $100 on contract which already was a pretty good bargain, but now Amazon have gone a step further by selling the device for $79.99 on a two year contract of course. But bear in mind that if you are an existing customer and are looking for an upgrade, you'll have to spend slightly more ($119.99). But still it's pretty reasonable for a phone … [Read more...]

Verizon to Launch Samsung Droid Charge Today

The Samsung Droid Charge had a rather disappointing launch when Verizon's networks went down rapidly the very day of its launch. This also caused the delay of the Verizon Droid X2 which was supposed to launch yesterday. But now Verizon is all geared up for the Droid Charge's re launch. The Droid Charge will be launched by Big Red today at midnight. This is one of those very few 4G LTE enabled devices on Big Red's network. The Droid Charge won't be available for a reasonable price though. You … [Read more...]

Verizon Droid X2 to Hit Markets on May 26

Verizon's first dual-core Tegra 2 running smartphone, the Droid X2 has now been delayed after being shown off and getting customers all tempted. Verizon's 4G LTE network shortage seems to be a very concerning issue now. Verizon promoted their 4G LTE coverage with much fervor and grandeur, only to fail at the last minute. The Motorola Droid X2 seems to have fallen prey to the shortage this time with Big Red delaying the launch of the device which was supposed to be in the market today, the device … [Read more...]

Sharp Aquos SH-12C Can Record 3D Videos in 720p; Coming to Japan on May 20

3D phones are in abundance these days (well, in the news at least). We recently heard about the LG Optimus 3D and the HTC EVO 3D and some other Japanese brands coming up with 3D phones.

AT&T Finally Allows Sideloading of Third Party Apps

We wrote about the AT&T Infuse 4G yesterday and we were thoroughly impressed with the handset. And apart from the sleek looks and a large display there's something that is quite out of the ordinary about the device. As most AT&T users might know, downloading of third party apps is not supported on its network. But this time with the Infuse 4G, AT&T is actually allowing side-loading of third party apps which is a very good supplement to the handset. Most Android smartphones we find in … [Read more...]

Gingerbread ROM for the T-Mobile G2x Leaked

Some might remember T-Mobile tweeting about their very own G2x getting the Gingerbread update very soon.

But G2x owners will be pleased to know that a leaked version of the Gingerbread update is floating around in the internet. With this the users can get a feel of Gingerbread without having to wait for T-Mobile's update. This could possibly be the final … [Read more...]

With the help of the Xperia … [Read more...]
