Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and Arc limits production due to earthquake; Xperia Neo delayed

Our hearts go out to everyone in Japan. A second set of earthquakes rattled the country for the second time in under a month. Not as much damage was done this time, but several companies have been shaken up by both earthquakes. Sony Ericsson was one of these companies, which announced that quantities of their upcoming devices, the Xperia Play and Arc, will be limited for a while after they first launch. In addition, SE reports that...

Windows Phone Marketplace: Now at 13,000 apps

Windows Phone is definitely picking up the pace now. 10 days after hitting the 12,000 milestone, it’s now at 13,000. In fact, almost 1500 apps have been added in the last 2 weeks, meaning WP7 is at a pace of adding 3,000 apps to its Marketplace per month. Now if only we could convince Pandora to throw a little something together, and tell Rovio to hurry up with Angry Birds, Windows Phone would definitely be sitting pretty....

Android Hacks and ROMs available this week

It’s time to start a new feature here on Unwired View. Recently I’ve been paying more and more attention to the hoardes of official and unofficial Android ROMs, roots, source code leaks, and other forms of Android hackery, and realized how hard it is to keep track and make sense of it all. So, I’d like to help sort it all out and help point you in the right direction if you are interested in dabbling in the...

Verizon 86’s the One-Year Contract Option, effective April 17

One thing consumers treasure more than anything is the opportunity to have choice, regardless of whether the options are good or not. In addition to the New Every Two program getting flushed down the toilet earlier this year, now the one-year contract option is on the chopping block. These moves are part of a large effort to simplify the plans the company offers and make the choices less confusing to the consumer. Sadly, the consumer...

Screenshots of WebOS 3.0 Leak, Show off HP TouchPad

We’ve seen pictures taken of HP’s new version of WebOS before, but now we have actually found some screenshots, courtesy of PreCentral. These shots show a few aspects of the OS, as if it were on the HP TouchPad. We still don’t know when we’ll actually be able to get some hands-on time with WebOS 3.0, but since we are starting to see screenshots leaked through to us, it likely means we’re getting pretty...

Sprint HTC Arrive Review

The very first Windows Phone 7 device has shown up on Sprint’s website and stores (note how I avoided the obvious pun there?), which Microsoft should consider a huge victory for its overall smartphone market share in the US. Now that WP7 is finally available on CDMA, we should see the floodgates open for multiple handsets running the platform on Sprint and Verizon both. This is going to be great for Microsoft, since up until this time...

Verizon HTC Thunderbolt 4G Review

It’s time to review the very first smartphone on Verizon’s new LTE 4G network, and we haven’t seen this much hype for a phone (outside the iPhone, that is) for a very long time. We’ve been waiting for this phone to come out for a good 4 years; we are, of course, talking about the HTC Thunderbolt, the brand-new hero device for the Big Red network. The Thunderbolt isn’t the very first smartphone with 4G ever made; not by a long...
