Hands-on with the At&t Fuze

November 11, 2008 |

At&t Fuze
Over my lunch break today, I decided to stroll down to the At&t store a few blocks away to see if I could get my hands on the new Fuze. The Fuze has been showing up at retail locations across the country over the past few days, but of course with my lunch, the story by new had not gotten them in till today. I was a bit disappointed when I walked into the store and did not see the phone on display. I did a quick scan of all the display shelves, thinking they might have put it somewhere different than with all the other Windows Mobile phones, but the Fuze was nowhere to be seen.

Approaching one of At&t’s fine sales reps, I asked if they had gotten their Fuze shipments in yet. It turned out that the UPS guy had just dropped off their daily shipment and they were just now unpacking things. Without hesitation the sales rep dove into the boxes, throwing iPhones and Blackberries to the side and came up with he new At&t Fuze. He handed me the box and said "Have fun playing with it"

The first impression of the device always comes with the packaging. Unfortunately for At&t, the really dropped the ball on this one. At&t packaged one of their sexiest phones and their bland At&t boxes (if you’ve purchased an HTC branded phone of late you will know that HTC has some incredibly nice packaging).

Video comparison of the Touch Pro and Touch HD

November 11, 2008 |

It used to be a clear choice on which HTC device to get. If you wanted a sleek thin device, the Touch Diamond was the device for you but if you needed a full keyboard, the Touch Pro could take care of the job, but there was always that compromise of a few extra millimeters of thickness. Now that the Touch HD is on the market, you have a media centric choice added to the mix. Brandon Miniman from pocketnew.com has just put together a comparison video between the Touch Pro and the Touch HD to give you a look at how the devices perform side by side. We hope you enjoy it.

UPDATE: click the read more link to see the youtube vidoe. For some reason the file is crashing IE6 but seems to be working fine for Firefox and IE7 for now. Let us know if you are having any issues.

For quite some time, we have known about Windows Mobile 7, but a short while ago, Motorola briefly mentioned the existence of Windows Mobile 6.5. Until then, no one had heard anything about this OS upgrade, but now Steve Ballmer has come out and shared some additional information on the subject. Windows Mobile 6.5 is real and will be launched next year. Original speculation slated WM7 to launch early next year, but those launch plans have been pushed back with no exact time frame given for it’s launch.

It is rumored that Verizon will be delivering the HTC Diamond to their stores in mid December, right in time for a last minute Christmas purchase.
