Are you tired of waiting around for HTC's newest devices?  For those of you who can not wait a few short weeks to get your hand on the T-Mobile Shadow or the HTC Cruise,  CompuLab is offering a barebone pre-configured computer board, with chips, radio, and choice of screen along with either Windows CE or Linux.  All that's left for you to do is create a case for the device and you are set to go.

Prices for the device start at $122 without a screen, but that's pocket change compared to most HTC phones these days.

T-Mobile HTC Shadow to Launch New Family for Sidekick Graduates

October 18, 2007 |

A few days ago, we got our first look at the  upcoming T-Mobile HTC Shadow.  Most the excitement on the phone came from the SureType keyboard into a rather slim and reasonably compact package.  Now new report are surfacing that the T-Mobile Shadow will be the first launch of a new family of phones for T-Mobile.

This new family of phones will be geared towards customers who feel they have outgrown their Sidekick and want to move on to something a little more grown up.  This could mean that a possible T-Mobile Shadow II somewhere down the road.

The release date for the T-Mobile HTC Shadow is expected on October 31 for $149 with a new two year contract.

HTC to Ship 50,000 Google Phones

October 17, 2007 |

There have been rumors flying around about a Google Phone for the longest time and many people are saying that the actual handset will be produced not by the search engine giant, but by a third party manufacturer already known for creating some rebadged wonders. And now, there's even more fodder to substantiate that rumor.

A UBS analyst is reporting that HTC is set to ship "about 50,000" cell phones running on a Google-developed mobile operating system. And the shipment will happen before Santa makes his rounds at the end of this year. As you recall, the HTC-produced google Phone will be running a mobile variant of Linux, hopped up with a bunch of Google software. Between 3 and 5 HTC devices have been seen running Google's mobile OS.

Interestingly, this first batch of GooglePhones will not be destined for the marketplace. Instead, the 50,000 units "are going to be available for developers only to understand how the software works." A commercial unit may be ready sometime in 2008.

Hopefully, more information will be revealed at Google's analyst event on October 24th.
