HTC One review

HTC has pulled out all the stops with the One, which looks great, performs well and includes some clever features. The lack of storage expansion and the persistence of BlinkFeed are irritations, but overall the HTC One stands up well against rival flagship handsets.

T-Mobile USA announces myTouch 3G Android device

I thoroughly enjoy using my T-Mobile G1 Google Android device on the T-Mobile network (see my full review) and find the keyboard to be a fantastic mobile QWERTY keyboard. I was pleased to hear T-Mobile USA announce early this morning that the second Google Android device will be coming to the network in July. The T-Mobile myTouch 3G does not have a QWERTY keyboard, but it does have an upgraded interface and some additional features over the T-Mobile G1. This is the T-Mobile USA branded HTC Magic device. The myTouch 3G also will be available in three colors; black, white, and merlot.

Mozilla Fennec browser released in pre-alpha form for Windows Mobile

One of the weakest features of Windows Mobile is the current web browser, Internet Explorer Mobile. There are several better alternatives such as the fantastic Opera Mobile 9.5 for Windows Mobile that is included on some devices as the default browser and the Skyfire proxy browser (I can watch Hulu.com with this browser). There has been talk for quite some time about Mozilla entering the Windows Mobile space and as reported by WMExperts.com the Fennec browser is now available in very early pre-alpha form (aka milestone release) to try on HTC Touch Pro devices. Make sure you have a backup of your device and are willing to risk a hard reset before trying this software out as it is very early in the development cycle and not that stable.
