HSDPA, Windows Mobile, QWERTY, slim design -- what more could a road warrior ask for? The Samsung BlackJack for AT&T packs all of the above and a whole lot more, even offering up a little somethin' for the music lovers in the form of stereo Bluetooth support. The good folks at Samsung have hook...

Carry around a little piece of history in your pocket, the recently-launched Nokia N75. And no, we don't mean it's an ancient phone -- far from it, in fact. The N75 makes history as the first S60 handset (and the first Nokia, period) with American 3G to see launch. Features include QVGA internal an...

We know that there's another grueling week to survive between now and the Coca-Cola 600, but here's a NASCAR tidbit that will hopefully satisfy your Sunday desire for a little roundtrack action. AT&T has been given the green flag to rebrand Jeff Burton's (very orange) #31 race car after Judge Ma...

Your latest "anything iPhone related happens" post is here, this time with the news that AT&T has given away an iPhone to a member of the public, coupled with a recent statement that Apple is wrestling with the decision of whether to allow 3rd parties to develop iPhone apps. It's rather odd that...

Sorry for the emotional rollercoaster, AT&T subscribers; we know it's been a rough week. Happily, the LG CU500v (AT&T's first Video Share phone) and Nokia N75, both anticipated devices in their own right, are finally on sale. No, seriously. Check out the links below if you don't believe us....

Hard to believe we had to wait until 2007, but here we are, finally able to say Symbian, 3G, and US all in the same sentence. Even after last week's misfire launch of the N75, Nokia's uber-hot flip phone made its way into our grubby hands under more legitimate circumstances than last time. Knowing...

Field tidbits from Engadget's mobile insider, the Boy Genius.Did you know that AT&T plans on marketing the N75 to males and females ages 25 to 45? Or that said individuals should be "spontaneous and fun"? Personally, we think that North America's first 3G-compatible S60 device suits 18 year old...

Don't get your hopes up, it's not Windows Mobile 6 or anything cool like that, but HTC and AT&T have thrown 8525 owners a bone today with the official release of an expected (albeit a tad late) firmware upgrade. HTC's page for the update is about as vague as it could possibly be without totally...

Nope, we didn't screw up the image here -- the LG CU500v is, for all practical purposes, identical to the older CU500, save for the critical detail that the CU500v's firmware supports Video Share. We can basically think of the new feature as a poor man's video calling; video is transmitted only one...

Cash money revenge is at hand dear BlackBerry users. After suffering a 12 to 15 hour e-mail outage last week, Cingular, uh hem, the New AT&T is offering its business subscribers a prorated credit as long as your willing to call and complain. We're talking a mere $1 to $2.50 refund depending upon...
