Samsung B&O Concept Phone design

Have you ever seen a phone that exactly looks like something James Bond would use in real life?

Some of the features are 4.3” Super AMOLED Plus, Full aluminum design, and powered by 1.5 GHz Dual Core Processor.

Apple I Hate You

Apple why must you torment me with your incessant updates/upgrades, leaving me to believe that my main problem with your glorious phone would be fixed. Alas, I finish upgrading and there’s nothing but minor changes that I’ll never notice. With the understanding that some bugs and security failures need attending to, I can never comprehend as to why you guys would overlook such a huge flaw in your device. You describe the phone with such grandiosity that it’ll make a blind person buy it.

Video: First Tweet From Mt. Everest

British mountain climber Kenton Cool used a 3G connection to make a call and send out a tweet on the summit of Mount Everest.

This was made possible when in October 2010, the Nepali mobile network operator Ncell installed the first 3G station at the base camp of Mount Everest.

Now, in a nifty marketing trick, Samsung sponsored Cool to use its most powerful smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S II, to make the first 3G call and send out a tweet from the mountain’s summit.

Video: The Faces Behind The HTC ThunderBolt


It’s rare that we get a glimpse into the thoughts and processes it takes to make a smartphone like the HTC ThunderBolt, which launched on Verizon Wireless as its first 4G LTE device yesterday, but HTC has posted a great 4-minute video where some HTC designers and employees discuss the ThunderBolt, the Sense UI, and what excites them about both. The clip doesn’t necessarily share anything new about the ThunderBolt, but we did enjoy checking out the HTC designer sketchbooks at the 0:27 mark and listening to HTC Sense UI designer Drew Bamford talk about the challenges of creating a product that appeals to the masses.
