The First Android powered Motorola phone is coming to T-Mobile U.S.A. Yeah, I’m talking about that ugly blue thing. The specs are decent enough, all the stuff a smartphone being released in 2009 should have. And again, it’s mad by Motorola, so don’t get too excited.
- Tri band WCDMA/ HSDPA/ HSUPA 900/1700/2100
- Quad band GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900
- HandsFree Speaker
- Photo and video Camera
- Video Player
- Stereo Bluetooth
- Music Player
- HTML Browser
- Android OS.
No word on pricing, release date, or alternative colors yet. Though if you really wanted, you could just paint it.
We already knew it was coming on the 12th of August, but hearing it from T-Mo themselves is just a little reassurance. In case you haven’t heard, this baby is packing a 3.6” touch screen, tilting slide out QWERTY keyboard, Windows Mobile 6.1 with the Touch Flow 3D interface, 3.2 megapixel camera (my favorite), and a bunch of other cool features which can be seen here.
Mark you calenders for August 12th! T-Mobile will be the first U.S carrier to launch the TP2, so this is a big deal.
Hey all you guys and girls. Sorry we haven’t posted any new stories recently. I’ve been real busy lately, Mike is away for a couple weeks, and the rest of the guys…well I have no idea what they’re doing.
Were working on getting more news, and how to’s (haha, that rhymes) up for you guys, but things are just going a little slow right now. You can expect to see a lot more action on AllShadow when the TP2 and myTouch are released in the very near future.
I’ll catch you up on some news… More >
Having access to the internet on our mobile devices is second nature for most people these days. With the current economy though, it’s not a necessity. You may say “Well it’s not that muchfor a data plan”, but that monthly payment adds up quickly.
That being the case, there are still people without data plans (including me). Even though we may not have internet on our phones, it would be nice to be able to get basic information from our favorite websites throughout the day, like RSS feeds or news headlines. So what to do?
That’s where Pingie comes in. Pingie is an online application that takes website posts and RSS feeds, and sends them via text message to just about any cell phone (Internet enabled or not). This free service is really easy to use, just enter your email address, phone number, and the website or RSS feed that you want it to pull information from. Don’t worry, all of your information will be safe, I’ve never gotten any spam or ads sent to my cell or email from Pingie.
That’s basically all you have to do. Once you set it up, Pingie will keep sending you information until you tell it to stop. Standard text rates still apply, but Pingie is free to use.
One useful thing I used Pingie for was getting updates from Craigslist. That enabled me to know as soon as something new was posted. There are many possibilities. Even If you do have a data plan, Pingie will save you the “hassle” of firing up your mobile web browser and going to the actual site.
If you think you’ll find Pingie useful, give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments. If you’ve already discovered Pingie, let us know what you use it for. And If you know of another application that does the same thing better, we would love to hear about it.
Get Pingie here.
That’s right all you myTouch 3G (or to be) owners, Exchange support and visual voicemail is coming to your phone!
Unfortunately, Exchange will only be working with mail, no calender or contacts as of right now. There is already a third party exchange app, but that costs around $20. No word on a release date, or if this will be coming to the G1, but this will surely make you business types happy.
And visual voicemail is also coming to the myTouch 3G. Which there is also an app for already. I’ve never used visual voicemal, but it seems like something worth having if you save a lot of voicemails.
If there is an app or program you find useful, let us know in the comments.
For those of you wanting the snazzy new MyTouch 3G log into your my.t-mobile.com account and place an order or dial 611 and pre order through Customer Care.
It looks like TMoNews has just gotten hold of a plethora of T-Mobile Touch Pro2 images, giving us views of the entire device and letting us finally have a good look at the design.
If you’ve been following this device, you’ve undoubtedly read reviews of the European Touch Pro2 which has been out since June. So, what is different from a hardware perspective? Let’s take a peep… More >
