Dialed In 125: Down on Kin Video
It's a slow week for cell phones, especially with Bonnie out on vacation in Maui -- the lucky girl. But we still have some mobile news, like rumors of a new LG Chocolate, inklings of a Sony Ericsson Android handset, and the brand new MyTouch 3G from T-Mobile. We also go over our reviews and answer some of your questions.
Finally, we get a bit of relief from this busy summer of cell phone madness, but even though it's a short week, there's still some news to discuss. Motorola and T-Mobile have teamed up on another Android phone, and Samsung and Sprint have done the same. Also, problems continue to plague the iPhone 4, but there are also a number of bright spots. Plus, we take a look at T-Mobile's first LG handset and Pantech's phone for seniors. All this and more on this week's Dialed In podcast.
This week on the CNET Tech Review: is your iPhone safe from prying eyes? No, it's not. Plus: T-Mobile's MyTouch goes 4G; counting down the Top 5 laptops; and we try out all six Kinect launch titles.
T-Mobile's making a splash this week with the introduction of the Samsung Gravity 2 and the Samsung Comeback, the latter of which has Nicole impressed. Kent also gets an early look at the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G and, thankfully, it's a huge improvement over the G1. Plus, we debate the appeal of the LG Watch Phone: is it a do or a don't? All this and more on Dialed In Episode 88.
On this week's Dialed In, a tan and relaxed Bonnie joins us back in the studio to discuss a gallery of new phones for AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. We also gab about Apple ending the Palm and iTunes party, upcoming Android updates and the dangers of texting while walking. And of course, we report on our latest reviews and take your questions.
This week on Dialed In we talk about the latest Android phone news, Bonnie and Kent speculate on what iOS 4 will mean for Google's little green guy, and we discuss our latest reviews.
It wouldn't be a week in cell phone land if the Dialed In crew didn't have a lot to talk about. And since it's been two weeks since our last show, you can bet that this episode is chock full of cell phone news and reviews. Leading off is the CNET review of the iPhone 3GS. We're still getting through the lab tests, but we've combed through the new features in depth. Meanwhile, Bonnie enthralls us with a long list of major smartphone news including Flash Player 10 beta and T-Mobile's second Google Android phone. And elsewhere in the podcast, Bonnie sighs, Kent sings, and Nicole laughs at them both.
Our little Dialed In family is back together once again. After enduring some technical difficulties and travel nightmares, Kent and I are back from Barcelona to join Nicole in the studio where we reflect on all the news from Mobile World Congress 2010. If there's one takeaway from the show, it's that software will play a primary role in this year's smartphones, while hardware will take a backseat. In other news, AT&T is finally getting its first Android phone and Sprint's WiMax devices are coming but not as early as some say. All this plus the latest cell phone reviews on this week's episode of Dialed In.
The T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide isn't the flashiest Android device on the block, but its midrange feature set and friendly user interface make it a good choice for first-time smartphone buyers.
T-Mobile's latest MyTouch phone boasts video chat, 4G-like speeds, and Wi-Fi calling. How does it compare to the rest of the carrier's Android lineup? Find out in our First Look of the T-Mobile MyTouch 4G.
