The last in this long series was just yesterday, when the latest LG phone was announced to be bundled with Google applications. With a name so high profile as Google, this is...

Mobile browsers compared

Mobile browsers compared With yesterday’s release of Opera Mini 4 Beta, I thought it would be a good time to do a browser comparison to show what the options are in the world of mobile browsing.

iPhone third party software restricted to the we

iPhone third party software restricted to the web Steve Jobs talked to developers today at WWDC 2007 about the iPhone and what developers would be able to do with it.

Prepaid or contract? It’s easy to fall in for an advertisement claiming you can get a state-of-the-art phone for $99, or sometimes even free. It feels even better when you go see a dealer and they tell you they can get you a contract for only $20 a month. The surprise usually comes when you get...
