For the sixth consecutive year, the Phone Scoop team is in Las Vegas this week for the mother of tech trade shows: CES. We'll be bringing you extensive hands-on coverage of everything related to cell phones at the show. We'll be hitting the show floor, as well as press events and one-on-one meetings with the major players, in order to bring you everything there is to know. We'll have plenty of photos and videos, of course, as well as live photos and live-blogs of major news as it happens.
This year, we expect big news from Palm. At least, that's what they've promised us, so look for our live-blog of the Palm press conference at 11am (PST) on Thursday. We also expect news from Motorola, T-Mobile, LG, and more.
Be sure to check in through Sunday for additional updates as we scour the show for every last bit of phone news and bring it to you here.
Can we get an in-depth review of the internet browser, if i'm not mistaken, palm said the phone can open as many windows/tabs as we want without slowing down the phone. I am interested to see what you guys think, especially in comparison to other mobi... (continues)
This phone looks really good,and it only makes sense that this phone is going to sprint, ITS FROM PALM. in my opinion, they have a good connection between each other. But rich, my question is, does this phone have expandable memory? i know that its pa... (continues)
Thanks for bringing us so much info on the Pre. I know you mentioned that the Pre would not support video out of the box but that it would probably do so down the road. Do you know if that will be something that can be done via a firmwar... (continues)
The only thing I think this artical was missing in my oppinion is the in depth information we get in a review where you've spent more time on the phone. Do you have any indication of estimated battery life? And on that note I'm assuming there is a ... (continues)
I was wondering..normally Aim is very basic on previous palm handhelds along with Blackberry phones and all other normal flip phones. The sidekick is the only one that actually lets you customize away messages and icons, etc..is it going to be as adva... (continues)
This is a perfect choice Sprint has recently been rated to have the best 3G network and plans. If Verizon were to get this device it would have half the Ram no GPS or WiFi. Also, to my understanding Palm is not making an American GSM version however... (continues)
There are articles floating around the Net which have Palm officials saying the only other planned version of the Pre will be the GSM Euro World-Ready version. They specifically say "second version released in foreign regions", Sprint has the America... (continues)
I know, I'm so excited. I was so turned off by Palms never-changing archaic UI. I'm SO EXCITED to see how Sprint does with this phone! The fact that it's web/android based is so attractive. Like the G1 it sounds like it has a lot of room to expand on ... (continues)
Any word about the CDMA Blackberry Pearl Flip (Kickstart)?
Verizon had the Blackberry Pearl 8130 on sale for $20 with a 2 year contract "while supplies last" so that gave me the impression that they might be clearing them out. Is the CDMA Blackberry Pearl Flip (i.e. Kickstart) coming out soon? Any stuff about it at CES? Thanks.
Hopefully this phone is going to sprint, THEY NEED A NEW PHONE LINEUP. i'm a current account holder of sprint. But i wouldn't know wheter to get the blackberry "niagara", palm pre', or the expected phone from samsung operating on android.
So they make a new device for the slowly dieing cdma networks but no gsm/hsdpa equipment? If they do announce one what chance will it have AWS support? No tmo I bet since they haven't carried a palm since the treo 600 days.
Yes, it's based on the Centro keyboard. It is on the small side, but the keys have a really nice domed shape that makes them easy to feel. They're a bit rubber-y, too. Using your fingernails seems to work best. Mine are incredibly short, and yet I was... (continues)
