When T-Mobile finally decided to join the 3G data card bandwagon earlier this year, we figured it prudent to grab a few sticks from the likes of T-Mob, Sprint, Verizon Wireless and AT&T in order to see which carrier provides the most bang for the buck in the mobile data arena. And trust us, it'

Way back in 2006, there was quite a bit of hubbub surrounding Cingular's decision to sell / not sell 3G phones in 2G areas, and now it seems that AT&T is looking seriously at how to move on beyond the latter. According to a leaked email sent within the AT&T organization, there's currently a

With LTE just over the horizon, NTT DoCoMo is proactively announcing the phase out of its mova and DoPa 2G services. The 2G mova services encompass car phone and Pre-Call

It turns out that January of this year is the very first month in history that Japanese retailers brought on no stock of 2G phones, and as amazing of a statistic is that is, we have to admit -- we're just a little surprised this didn't happen, like, several years ago. As of the end of February, abou

For the small price of 248,000 Norwegian Kroner (around $40,000) you can pick up a concentrated mix of gold, diamonds, and... iPod Shuffle. There's not a lot more to this blinged out creation: why anyone would want to place forty gees worth of precious carbon on a $99 gadget, we'll never know.[Than

In reality, it's probably best when two feuding companies decide to put their differences aside and move forward, but it's certainly a lot less fun.

Although this won't go down as the first restaurant to mix in a little iPod action with the meal, it's fairly safe to say that Fat Duck chef Heston Blumenthal has melded portable audio with dining like no other.

While Apple's second-generation iPod Shuffle was unveiled quite some time ago, shipments just recently started flooding out of Cupertino's (or China's) doors to eager early adopters.

Gutted, splayed, dissected, nekkid -- whatever you call it -- the disassembly of gadget hotness is a tradition of incalculable weight and precedence. It's also dang fun, and today we have the second generation iPod nano's internals all spread out for your viewing pleasure. iLounge did the honors

Toshiba's HD DVD press conference at CEDIA 2006 just ended and the first big news is out. It appears we will be getting the same players announced in Europe recently, named the HD-A2 and HD-XA2, this fall.

When Apple says \"available now,\" they mean it. Just one day after the revamped nanos were announced at the \"It's Showtime\" event, some drool-worthy shots of the green and blue 2G nanos managed to surface, and now we're graced with a photoset containing the esteemed 8GB black-only model.

Guess what, we also caught a glimpse of the 2G iPod nanomini, er, nano, which is their very \"retro\" 2004 version of their ultraslim flash device, It's hot alright, but is its 8GB of capacity enough to take out their number one competitor in the US, SanDisk?
