Of all the names being bandied about for the T-Mobile launch of HTC's Sapphire, we have to say that \"myTouch\" was our least favorite nom de guerre. However, it has apparently won the market-testing deathmatch -- at least that's the case according to the above reasonably official looking image of a

We're not sure why T-Mobile would be market-testing names other than \"G2\" for its upcoming HTC Sapphire, but it apparently is -- and if these leaked slides are to be believed, it's not doing so well on the ideas front. Seriously: \"T-Mobile Genius 3G with Google\" and \"Prism 3G with Google\" both trad

It's been just over a month since HTC's Magic / Sapphire first made its way through the FCC, although without any indication its destiny lied with T-Mobile. Well, it's back for Round Two, and this time the images clearly have the company's logo emblazoned at the top, just as it was at MWC when Goog

Make no mistake, the all-black HTC Magic is for real. Separated here at CeBIT from its glistening white counterpart by an equally white G1, this near-final Magic looked just stellar in its glossy dark coat. We chatted it up with an on-hand representative who confirmed that the handsets on display w

We personally think it looks just grand in white, but we can understand that white isn't for everyone -- so for the rest of you, enjoy these shots of HTC's Magic in black spotted at CeBIT. Interestingly, this unit isn't Vodafone branded; instead, it's rocking the HTC logo, which might mean they're

After Google had accidentally dropped the T-Bomb during its offline Gmail demo, we'd half expected (okay, hoped) that the version of the Sapphire passing through the FCC would rock T-Mobile's 1700MHz AWS goodies for US 3G. Alas, it doesn't -- implying that there'll be at least two versions of the p

Well, well, lookie here... HTC's G2 followup to the original Android phone getting a good man-handling in the wild. Expected in May, the images were leaked without specs or any real details. Still, it's clearly the G2 / Sapphire 2.0 handset with 3.2 megapixel camera leaked just a few weeks back alo

T-Mobile USA has a pretty solid relationship with HTC, considering it sells the Shadow, the Wing, and the G1 at the moment -- and seeing how the G1's doing a nice little spot of business for them, it stand to reason that they'd be looking to continue the good times through '09. We're hearing from T

Actually, we're being too kind. It hits every price point except the one below \"absurdly inflated.\" For whatever reason, Black Rhodium figures it can get away with launching a pricey new line of HDMI cables that are \"engineered for optimum performance at every price point,\" yet the cheapest one is a

When it comes to QuadHD, if 82-inches is too big, and 52-inches isn't quite big enough, maybe Sapphire's 56-inch, 8.3 megapixel, 3840 x 2160 res LCD is just right. TGDaily pegs the price at around $60,000, a price which might compel us to spring for Astro Systems' pro model. Unfortunately, even a w

Whether the format war is over or not, one thing that would definitely get more buyers off the fence and owning more high definition players would be lower prices. Aonex Technologies and Kyma Technologies are the latest to announce they've found a better (and cheaper) way to pump out the blue laser
