  • The unannounced Samsung SCH-R860 has passed FCC. The graphics attached to the test reports tells us the phone will probably be equipped with a touch-sensitive screen. Since it supports 1700MHz AWS and CDMA/EV-DO, we expect to see it at MetroPCS or Cricket soon. (source: FCC)

  • The first real pictures of the Nokia 2220 slide have been leaked on the Internet. All we had seen before we spotted these were visual presentations of the compact, likeable handset. The rumors have it the phone will roll out in Q4 this year. (source: DailyMobile)

  • Do you happen to be a fan of BMW and MINI cars? If yes, you can now get a Bluetooth headset with their logo on it. Actually, this is a re-vamped Plantronics, Discovery 925 and we don´t suppose the price tags of the BMW and MINI versions of the dainty gadget would be lower than what you would have to shell out for the original.

I'm amused by the chuck norris game. soon the little ipone phans will be talking about yet another great app like chuck proving the greatness of the ipone and the crappstore. Of course, it is simply being ported to ipone from the java game that has been out and running on winmo and feature phones for over a year now. It's a bit amusing, but is a very simple side scrolling shoot'em up.

All I have to say is that no device deserves to or is worthy enough to have a Chuck Norris App... Hell, the phone might end up killing the user.

chuck norris smites people too lazy or stupid to do a net search. He also roundhouse kicks those of us who assist such miserable slackers.

I hear Chuck Norris doesn't have a cell phone, he just talks outloud and the words make it to the intended recipient... mainly becuase they are afraid what Chuck would do to them if the didn't.
