f-1024-0

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: GO Launcher EX is hands down my favorite homescreen replacement for Android.

Sprint changes 1

We just got our hands of a copy of the latest Sprint Playbook, and while we were hoping for some more info about the LG Marquee and Kyocera Milano, what we found was a bit, well, different.  It seems that in order to stay competitive with Verizon and AT&T (Sprint’s words, not ours), some changes are going to be made to several of the perks everyone on Sprint takes for  [Read More…]

One of our minor complaints regarding the T-Mobile HTC Sensation 4G was a wee bit of lag when compared to its cousin, the Sprint EVO 3D. We’ve pretty much chalked that up to the EVO 3D’s increased RAM, and whatever difference in software tweaks you’ll find between a Sprint and T-Mobile device. But that might all about to become moot, with yet another appearance of the HTC Ruby, which is believed to be destined for T-Mobile as  [Read More…]
