Palm Pixi

These days it’s not unreasonable to see a Sprint phone later appear on Verizon — or vice versa, depending on the case. After all, both carriers use the CDMA network, so there’s no major reworking of a handset’s innards. But in the case of the Palm […] Read more »

Information from the Verizon support site for Droid breaks out the following fixes and enhancements in software version AP:ESD56/BP:C_01.3E.01P — which just rolls off the […] Read more »

Word of an HTC leaked roadmap was all over Twitter last night — and for good reason. The alleged roadmap and all images appear courtesy of an XDA-Developers forum poster and they look pretty legitimate to me. None of the specifications are what I’d consider unbelievable. […] Read more »
