If you didn't make it to eBay in time to put down $1,200 or so for your very own pre-release Gulftown chip, cheer up! The countdown to the six core wonder continues apace, with more news each passing day. According to a purportedly leaked slide that popped up on China's PC Online, the 32nm chip wil

Would you pay $1,200 for an as-of-yet unreleased Intel Core i9 chip? Hard to say if the transaction actually occurred, but an auction recently ended from a Taiwanese eBay user who claims to be selling a six-core, 2.4GHz Xeon Westmere Gulftown processor. We can't vouch for the validity of the listin

Boost Mobile's i9 stands head and shoulders above the rest of the carrier's line as its clear-cut hero device, but there's a problem -- the launch color, kind of a dark bronze, was a little bland. That's not cool for an iDEN flip this far up into the rare air, is it? Of course not, so we're glad to

Following its earlier launch on subsidiary Boost, Sprint Nextel proper has now seen fit -- as expected -- to launch the hottest iDEN phone ever created, Motorola's Stature i9. $199.99 on contract after rebate will buy you a 3.1 megapixel cam, GPS, Bluetooth, microSD expansion, and all the iDEN-powe

We've seen a number of launch date leaks for Sprint courtesy of partner Brightpoint in the past; generally, they tend to be pretty accurate, so we're going to go ahead and put some weight to this latest one. Looks like we can expect Nextel to pick up the Motorola i9 on Wednesday -- Boost got it a l

So, you already know all there is to know about Motorola's i9 (on paper, at least), but wouldn't you like to see it toyed with on video? If you've found yourself shaking that noggin' to and fro, we'd recommend that you have a look past the break. There, you'll find a three minute walkthrough of the

We caught sight of the iDEN Motorola i9 Stature a week or so ago, but it was sitting comfortably in limbo until today. The Motorola i9 Stature will be arriving for your walking / talking pleasure at Boost Mobile by the end of February and sliding into Sprint shops shortly after that. Touted as the

Remember the Motorola i9 iDEN set destined for Sprint? Well, if the flyer above is anything to go by, Boost Mobile may well get it first. In the ad for Boost's unlimited $50 plan -- which is a killer deal by the by -- Motorola's i9 is listed as coming soon. How soon? Sadly, no word on that or what

If this were anything but an iDEN phone, we'd be laying into it for looking like a circa-2007 RAZR 2 clone (which it essentially is), but for a Nextel Direct Connect piece, this is as good as it's ever gotten. Official pictures of the i9 are now available from Motorola, some of which clearly show N

It's hard to believe that iDEN's having a bit of a renaissance so late in its life, but if these two handsets aren't evidence of that, we really don't know what would be. The Motorola i9 and BlackBerry 8350i will represent the very best that Sprint's Direct Connect network has to offer when they're

Okay, we're going to say this only once, so pay attention because you're not likely to ever hear it again: this is a good-looking iDEN phone. There, we said it. We feel good about it, no regrets. When are you gonna hit up Sprint for us, i9?[Thanks, djSD]%Gallery-35418%

We broke this sucker in its codename form of \"Cabo\" at some point before the last ice age -- our memory's kinda hazy going back that far -- but it's just now getting around to reality, and it's looking every bit as good (by iDEN standards, anyway) as it did back in the day. The i9 (as it turns out
