Dialed In 133: More Android, more iPhone issues Video
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.
The Pantech Breeze is definitely ideal for seniors and those with disabilities, but it's also an all-around great phone for anyone who wants a decent entry-level handset.
Pantech and AT&T largely impress with this $50 phone that packs in a lot more than you'd expect for a budget Android handset.
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.
Mobile World Congress 2011 is over and the gang's back together once again, but before we say adios to MWC, we thought it'd be good to recap some of the highs and lows of the show. Plus, Nokia may have signed on with Microsoft and Windows Phone 7, but the Finnish handset manufacturer says it's still committed to Symbian. We discuss their future, as well as RIM's, and much more (hologram phones!) on this week's episode of Dialed In.
Bonnie finally reviews the Microsoft Kin phones and let's just say it isn't too positive. We also discuss the recently announced Android phones -- the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide and the LG Ally -- plus a few other cell phone news this week.
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.
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.
The Pantech Breeze III is a well-designed and affordable entry-level handset for senior citizens, kids, and cell phone novices.
Compared to the past few weeks, this seems like a relatively slow news week, but there's still plenty going on in the mobile world. The AT&T and T-Mobile saga continues with a new lawsuit from Sprint, and a court date between the Department of Justice and AT&T. HTC is fighting back and suing Apple (anyone else need a chart to keep track of all these lawsuits?) with patents it received from Google, but perhaps most important of all, the Motorola Droid Bionic is real and it's finally out. Get our final verdict on the Android superphone and the rest of this week's news and reviews on episode 190 of Dialed In.
