The Competition: BlackBerry Storm 2 -- Do Over?

The Competition: BlackBerry Storm 2 -- Do Over?

BlackBerry Storm2, RIM's second bite at Apple's multi-touch, black slab form factor, is just about ready for prime time, and as always, our sibling site CrackBerry.com has the complete Storm2 review. Kevin sums it up thusly:

The Storm2 fixes many of the BlackBerry Storm's outstanding issues and makes a ton of incremental improvements, all of which add up to something that feels noticeably better. In a way that never quite applied to the original Storm, the Storm2 could legitimately be called the flagship BlackBerry.

Seidio 3-in-1 Retractable Charger Reality Review

Seidio 3-in-1 Retractable Charger Reality Review

We have all been there. You know, our iPhone is about to die from a drained battery and no charge cable in sight. Well, the Seidio 3-in-1 Retractable Charger [$29.99 - iMore Store link] is here to change that. The Seidio charger gives you everything you need for any portable situation. You get a USB cable that actually snaps into place (I love that. Most cables I see these days don't actually snap in place, they just fit, but not securely) and the always capable wall charger and large grip-friendly car charger.

Apple Bringing Wi-Fi Direct to iPhone in 2010?

Apple Bringing Wi-Fi Direct to iPhone in 2010?

Apple has jumped on the Wi-Fi Direct bandwagon, which means we could see the technology introduced into the iPhone and iPod touch as early as 2010. What is it and what does it do?

Or, if we understand it right, imagine the Remote app controlling your iTunes or Apple TV, but directly, without the need for shared router in between. Says AppleInsider:

Poll: How's Google Sync Gmail Working on Your iPhone?

Poll: How's Google Sync Gmail Working on Your iPhone?

Roughly 3 weeks ago Google (finally!) added Gmail to their Google Sync service, allowing iPhone users to add push email to the previously available contacts and calendars. It wasn't a solution for everyone, since it used Microsoft's ActiveSync, which allows for only one account per device, and many users already had a business Exchange server in that slot. For those without Exchange, however, it's awesome, right?

Or is it? We've had many readers tell us it works great, and others who've had some problems -- enough that we want to ask, how's Google Sync working on your iPhone?

Let us know in the poll above, and elaborate as needed in the comments!

(And we'll insert yet another plea to Apple and Google to give us Gmail via IMAP IDLE in the Mail app already!)

Mystery Solved: AT&T Carrier File Update 5.6 for iPhone Did What Exactly?

Along with iPhone 3.1.2, AT&T users received a 5.6 carrier file update, but the reason(s) for it weren't clear. MMS was already enabled, and tethering was nowhere in site, so what was it for? Well, iPhone Savior sat on the phone with Apple support long enough to find out! Turns out, it fixed an MMS bug:

Quick WebApp: Google Wave Goes Full Screen for iPhone

Looks like Google Wave, the big G's cloud-based take on next-generation communication and collaboration, already works on the iPhone. No big surprise, though, it's browser powered and the iPhone still has the slickest browser in mobile. Google even showed it off on an iPhone during its debut at IO 2009. TechCrunch, however, found this interesting little bit of behavior:
