Well, that’s that. Move along now.
Just as a case in point, the headline is nearly exactly what HTC said. Moving on to the story, Crave UK loved their Nexus One, until one day it appeared with the purple screen seen above. According to Crave, the Nexus One was innocently charging on a desk. They also swore that they didn’t kill their wonderful Nexus One, and couldn’t understand how it ended up in a purple coating. So Google encouraged them to contact HTC; problem is HTC was stumped. But then they pressed on and got this response from Mr. Clever HTC Support Guy:
“Putting a phone in a tight pair of jeans and sitting down would usually cause that kind of damage,” and “People sometimes forget that they don’t go in pockets.”
Could you please put that by me again? A phone can’t go into a pocket you say? On the flipside of things, CNET UK recieved a new Nexus One courtesy of HTC, and said they’ll be watching this one.
This better not happen with the Nexus One we just got yesterday from Google .

Are you interested in seeing the Legendary unibody, sleek and silver, HTC Legend? Of course you are, and that’s why Chris Davies over at SlashGear has his grimy paws on one (we’re jealous), and also did an unboxing video which is embedded above. It’s a near-retail version; reason why I say that is because the microSD card was not included, and there’s no graphic on the box. This should definitely change when the Legend comes in April. Now check out the video and tell us what you think!
See that thing up there? Yeah, that’s what you would call one of the two Microsoft Pink phones built by Sharp, called the Pure (above) and the Turtle (seen after the break). Both phones look like they’re headed to Verizon on April 20th, and are targeted at teens (like myself, I think) and 20-year-olds. Now I wonder which teen or young person in their twenties would want such a phone, but anyway they both seem to be feature phones, or in other words: cheap smartphones. Now there’s no word on what OS they’re running, but you can be sure it’s not Windows Phone 7, Zune HD UI, or the like. The sad looking Turtle is slowly waiting for you to crawl to it after the break.
When we last reported on the Microsoft Courier there was little to none on actual details on it. But now we know a couple of things. First, it still leaves us very excited, it weighs under a pound, has a “digital journal feel”, that snazzy pen, and when folded looks like a 5×7 photo card. It’s built on the same core as the Zune HD UI and Windows Phone 7 Series and uses the Tegra 2, but doesn’t run any of the latter OSes mentioned. So far Engadget pegs the launch at later this year, but there are some conflicting reports of it coming around next year (if at all). Even though it’s smaller and probably less feature-loaded, there’s still lots of excitement going on around here, anyway this could still be a prototype, and it could change again. One more shot of it after the break.
So there you have it. If you want an iPad you’ll have to wait until Saturday April 3rd for it to be available at all Apple stores. But if you don’t want to wait in an extremely long line at an Apple Store, there’s the pre-order option that comes in just a week’s time on March 12th for the Wi-Fi model. The 3G model will arrive later in April, followed by releases to buyers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. As for all of those reports about a “delay”; there isn’t one, but it makes you wonder if there really will be enough iPads for everyone? Oh, and here are the prices for the iPad, just so you know howw much you need to bust out of your savings:
Want more? Full PR people, after the break.
It only takes a while. Give or take 3 months, and your iPhone looks like it came from a war. It’s scratched, dented, dull, and lost its charm. You’re hopeless, and are cursing Apple for not letting your iPhone stay good looking enough. You begin envying the Nexus One owner who will never have to face such an issue. Until MacRumors forum member Shenaniganz08 comes to save the world your iPhone! With this simple and easy step-by-step guide, your iPhone will look like it just came out of its box. You’ll need:
• Sandpaper 320(or 500),800,1000,1500,2000,2500,3000 grit
• 3M Rubbing compound
• Machine Polisher ( Power Drill or small buffer)
• Sticky tack and or tape
Know what’s amazing? Half of the junk you’ll need to pull this off — those microfibers, the polishing disc and rubbing compound – is included in a $15 3M headlight restoration kit. Afterwards any household drill that works can be used for the buffing. The results from the picture above are truly stunning, so why don’t you make your iPhone feel happy again?
Then only in a few months time you’ll find the new iPhone 4G. This world….
While you may not be used to flamboyant red phones, the HTC Incredible doesn’t look too shabby in red trim at all. Of course would Verizon allow such a phone with such out-of-this world colors to be released; we don’t know. What we do know is one, red and black is Verizon’s colors and two, that rumors say the official launch for the Incredible is from March to May (pretty wide, huh). Otherwise this Snapdragon, Android 2.1 with Sense UI smartphone is getting closer to an actual release everyday. Purportedly anyway.
Yes you must. Why would you want to stick with Android 1.5 on your Sense UI beast? According to numerous sources, Sense UI works great, and has the new touches that its friends the Desire and Legend have; the leak is courtesy from the always-working xda-developers. Of course, you could risk destroying your phone and your data, but anything for some Android 2.1 goodness, right? Right? OK maybe not, but the Sprint Hero ROM has been leaked as well. There’s another good excuse. Check out the source links on how to get started, but be careful ‘kay?
Anybody remember Project Pink? Before Windows Phone 7 Series stole its fire, and when Microsoft was planning a social phone targeted at “teens”? Yeah, well the Project Pick “Turtle” (because it looks like one and therefore is ugly) is headed to Verizon according to Giz. It will not run Windows Phone, but might instead use its own OS. As for apps, there’s complete confirmation that it couldn’t possibly use Windows Phone 7 Series apps, and that leaves us all with a piqued expression. According to John Hermann:
It’s suggested that the platform has apps of some sort. For a phone like this to share apps with Windows Phone 7 is pretty much impossible, so this one’s a big question mark. Is it another SDK? Or closed app development like we’ve seen on the Zune HD?
Hopefully all of this will come down soon. Hopefully.
