When the Blackberry Tour launched last June, it received generally good reviews. Skim them over, and the phone is universally dinged for not including WiFi support, but the trackball was scarcely mentioned. Two months later, the device's trackball is indeed causing issues. According to David Eller, an analyst with TownHall Investment Research, more than 40 percent of the Blackberry Tours Sprint has sold have been returned with users claiming the devices are defective. Most of the complaints focus on the trackball, but some owners are apparently having trouble with the touch screen's sensitivity... Read more...
Already launched on Verizon Wireless and Alltel, Sprint has become the next to official trumpet the release of RIM's BlackBerry Tour. We already knew the company was planning to put its own stamp on the highly-acclaimed smartphone, and just like that, the Tour 9630 has become a family member with Palm's Pre and the like. Boasting a 3G radio, GPS, document editing and a 3.2MP camera, this phone is certainly looking like a solid rival to the aforesaid Pre and Apple's iPhone. RIM claims that web browsing is faster than ever here, with easy access to social networking sites and a microSD card slot... Read more...
Verizon Wireless and Sprint have already announced plans to ship RIM's newest BlackBerry (that'd be the Tour), and now Alltel Wireless is jumping in to yell "me too!" Of course, it's sort of odd for Alltel to waste the marketing dollars here considering that VZW is already showing ads informing the general public that Alltel and Verizon are about to nail down a merge, but we digress.The same CDMA-ready 3G Tour that can be purchased on America's biggest two CDMA operators is also making a beeline for Alltel shelves (while they're still blue, anyway). As with the other carriers, Alltel's Tour also... Read more...

My, how the tables have turned. The bickering from mobile carriers over the inclusion of Wi-Fi on higher-end devices is still fresh in our minds, as just a few years back many companies viewed it as a rival to 3G, and thus, a rival to mobile data revenues. Today, however, things have shifted dramatically. It's not really the data network that's profitable any more, but the applications and such downloaded for one's phone. Of course, it matters not what kind of data network is used when an app is purchased, it only matters that the app is purchased and some of that revenue goes the carrier. In the... Read more...
What would you get if RIM's BlackBerry Storm and Bold slammed together at an unnerving rate of speed? Aside from a real mess, you'd probably have something akin to this: the BlackBerry Tour. The newest 3G BlackBerry is headed straight for Verizon Wireless, with an in-store launch date of July 12th. Better still, this is classified as a "world phone," meaning that there is a SIM card slot as well to roam on GSM networks when not using VZW's CDMA towers here in the United States.Other specifications include a 3.2MP camera, built-in GPS, geo-tagging/video support, a full HTML browser, support for...

From July 5th through July 27th, the Tour de France will be running. I'm not going to be heading over there to watch, and although they'll be plenty of coverage, what if we want take a look at the route from a spectator's view? Google's thought about that, and has provide a Street View of the entire route. Google's blog post announcing the launch gives us the info: With this launch, you can now follow the race through each of the 21 stages with just a click of a mouse and enjoy a perspective similar to what your favorite cyclists see as they wind through France's majestic mountains, vivacious cities,...

Get ready, 'cause Guitar Hero: World Tour is set to hit shelves before the holiday season.In response to the racket created by Rock Band, Activision has turned up the volume with a new set of peripherals for World Tour.

Though we now know the identity of the fake Steve Jobs who kept us entertained with his blog, and thus the mystery is over, the story is not.  The author of “oPtion$: The Secret Life of Steve Jobs”, Dan Lyons, is planning on going on tour.Before you ask, we'll answer for you: Yes, the fake Steve Jobs is going on a real book tour.“Lyons is not planning extensive travels elsewhere, however. Da Capo told him it was too late for a big tour — and, Lyons lamented, the book might bomb outside of Silicon Valley. Lyons' isn't even hopeful about his hometown of Boston."Being too insiderish — it's my... Read more...
A Playstation 3 isn't cheap to buy. But your friends down at HotHardware thought we'd research what it costs to run it, too. We visited Sust-It, a website that helps people choose energy efficient appliances in Great Britain. A Playstation 3 uses 380 watts of power while it's running! That's more than twice the power consumption on an X-Box 360. It's 22 times the power consumption of Nintendo's Wii. It's about the same as a frost-free refrigerator. The stated yearly cost of 47.69 Pounds translates to $92.14 per year for electricity. I've been told that many people... Read more...
Epic's Unreal Tournament 2007 is getting a name change, so say hello to Unreal Tournament 3. Creative, eh? More important though, is you can now expect to see it on Microsoft's XBOX 360, which joins the Playstation 3 and PC as its chosen formats. Unreal Tournament 3 is expected to be out in the 2nd half of 2007. "The new game comprises a vast number of changes from increased aggressiveness and intelligence in the AI to better, more ridiculously powerful weapons to new characters, game modes, and online improvements.

Did you know your cellphone is anonymously snitching on your location all the time by scanning for signals from the nearest cell tower, whether you're using it or not? Well, IntelliOne Technologies has a way to put that to some use. They've developed a system to allow traffic to be mapped by plotting cellphone locations in real time. Developed by IntelliOne Technologies Corp. in Atlanta, the TrafficAid system could not only help to guide drivers around tie-ups, but also tell emergency responders where accidents are or how effectively...
