Verizon slash KIN pricing; new firmware due this summer

Verizon has quietly slashed pricing for the Microsoft KIN handsets, bringing the pebble-shaped KIN One down to $29.99 from its previous $49.99 pricing and the larger KIN Two halved in price from $99.99 to $49.99.  The move follows criticism of the featurephone/smartphone devices together with apparently disappointing sales figures; Microsoft is yet to confirm any numbers publicly, but sources at Verizon stores claim that the KIN handsets are being outsold by DROID and Palm Pre Plus phones.

HTC EVO 4G Review

HTC EVO 4G Review

Long anticipated, hugely specified and just plain huge: there's a lot to like about the HTC EVO 4G. The first WiMAX phone in the US brings with it the promise of DSL-like mobile data access along with the flexibility of Google's Android OS, complete with HTC's now-legendary hardware quality and flexible Sense UI. On the flip side it's nowhere near cheap and WiMAX coverage is marginal. Is this new superphone faster than a speeding bullet, or is that just how quickly it drains its battery? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

The Daily Slash: May 20th 2010

The Daily Slash: May 20th 2010

Only 11 more days left in the month, and today marked a pretty loud, and impressive, announcement from Google. Of course, there's just 11 more days in the month, and that means June's getting closer and closer. And we all know what's coming in June. Tonight though, in typical Daily Slash fashion, we'll focus on what else happened out there today. First up, in the Best of R3, we've got a report card with some pretty impressive statistics, and Versace has a new phone out (it's "unique"). And then in the Dredge 'Net, Steve Jobs isn't a fan of WebM, the white iPhone HD looks very sleek when it's rendered, and it looks like the AT&T Pre Plus has been given an unlock.

The Daily Slash: April 5th 2010

Welcome to the Daily Slash. If this is your first time 'round these parts, doubly welcome! We're happy to bring you the latest and greatest in the tech news every day, but some times we can't fit it all in the normal flow of the work day. So, here's our friendly wrap-up, where we even manage to wrap it up in a bow tie (if you wish hard enough). Tonight, we've got The Best of R3 Media to start off the night (a brand new feature that we're adding to the Daily Slash from here on out). And then, as we jump into the meat and bones, we'll take a look at a website that makes picking your seats for your next Major League Baseball game so much easier. Next, a jacket that's made for your iPad, a car of the future, and we finally have some good news for the company that brought us webOS. So, let's get crackin'.

When you leave your laptop behind

When you leave your laptop behind

We've all heard how the phone in your pocket is really a PC. Well, a few weeks ago I put that to the test literally. I left for a week of heavy business travel in three cities to see if my phone (actually a series of phones) could replace my MacBook Pro. For my tests, I carried an iPhone 3GS with a Mophie JuicePack Air, a Palm Pre Plus and an HTC HD2. I also had a Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard which works with the HD2.

Apple Stores Now Able to Sell Unlocked iPhones [update]

Apple Stores Now Able to Sell Unlocked iPhones [update]

Well, it looks like the world is seriously at a strange tilt. We're getting word that, as of today, Apple Stores are going to be able to start selling iPhones, free of contract, and at list price. That means $499 for 8GB, $599 for 16GB, and $699 for for 32GB. There's rumors that this has something to do with the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus showing up on AT&T's network some time here in the next couple months, and the fact that AT&T now has a 3G-enabled Google Nexus One is nothing to scoff at either. Times, they-are-a-changin', and it looks like Apple is definitely on that boat as well.

Sagem Orga SIMFi embeds WiFi onto a 3G SIM card

Sagem Orga SIMFi embeds WiFi onto a 3G SIM card

What if, rather than buying a MiFi or using a WiFi router app like on the Palm Pre Plus, you could stick a SIM in any device and have a shared 3G connection?  That's what Sagem Orga and Telefonica are promising; they've developed the SIMFi, a USIM card with an embedded WiFi radio that, when dropped into any standard handset, can share the 3G HSPA connection with various WiFi clients as an instant access point.
