LG Rumor 2 for Sprint

We just got a couple Rumor 2s into the CG office and in the short time we’ve had with the device, we can say that it picks up where the first one left off. The hardware feels sturdy and the keyboard is quite nice. The camera seems like it takes decent pictures (test shot: Canon lens box) when there’s enough light available as well, but we’ve only taken one test shot and it’s so-so. The menu system is pretty straightforward. There are a handful of included apps like, Loopt, Nascar, NFL Mobile and Social Zone. The queerest thing I saw was the “chat & dating” option under messages (the last two images). Anyway, we’ll have a full review soon.

After months of delays and at least one false start, the Sprint Treo Pro is finally on sale as promised — and from what we can tell, Sprint reps are already confusing the Pre and the Pro. Ouch. Nevertheless, we’re glad to see this thing make it out into the world — anyone going to drop the $199?

It looks like Sprint is really hot today. We’ve seen the Rumor 2 and the Moto i9 which were officially released today and they got a decent companion, the Palm Treo Pro.

The Treo Pro will be available to you starting today for $299.99 before a $100 mail-in rebate but only with an Everything Plan or data plan of $30 or more. What do you think? Is it worth getting the Treo Pro today when the Pre is coming this summer?

Top 10 most “Popular” U.S. mobile phones in December 2008

Posted on March 2, 2009. Filed under: Mobile World | Tags: , , , , |

Disclaimer: The following information is based on “popularity,” as in not cold hard sales stats since that info is not made available by either mobile carriers or manufacturers (and therefore, the rankings below are subjective). The ranking information (below) is provided by AvianResearch L.L.C. and is culled from its Monthly Retail Store Survey where it surveys 100 service reps and store mgrs from across the four major U.S. wireless carriers (AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and T-Mobile) – though we’re not sure how asking 100 retail employees about their favorite phones is really indicative of anything. According to AvianResearch, these four carriers represent 85% of all U.S. mobile subscribers.

With that said, lets take a quick look over these too cool for school mobiles. Edging out Apple’s iPhone 3G for the top spot is none other than the vivacious BlackBerry Curve. RIM has got to feel pretty good about itself, what with 3 devices in the top 10 and helping Canada take home first place. Although not standing on the podium, both LG and Samsung also make a solid showing with 3 devices each in the top 10, giving South Korea an incredibly strong presence with 6 total handsets. That leaves America with just one popularity medal, Apple’s iPhone 3G standing alone at #2.

Here are the Top 10 Most Popular U.S. mobile devices in December 2008:

1. RIM Blackberry Curve
