Microsoft: Windows Phone 7 series 'will not initially offer copy and paste,' case-specific actions integrated into OS {Engadget}

Mar 19th 2010 6:52PM Excel and Word desperately need Cut & Paste, but it should NOT be system-wide, the contextual hotlinking sounds much more attractive.

Moblic E7 stuffs WiMAX, QWERTY, a gamepad, and all our dreams and wishes into a MID {Engadget}

Feb 22nd 2010 11:32PM F@&# YES!!!!!

WHY DID IT TAKE THIS LONG FOR SOMEONE TO THINK OF THIS??

I am totally going to be emulating the shit out of that MIDboy

Dell Mini 5: we have it (update: new pics and video!) {Engadget}

Feb 11th 2010 12:27PM CAN IT RUN APPS??

That's the biggest question I have about Android tablets: with app compatibility being spotty just between the different handsets, will tablets be totally shut out?

I want to know that most apps and some games will run on this device like any other.

The 2009 Engadget Awards: Nominate the Most Anticipated Gadget of 2010 {Engadget}

Jan 13th 2010 11:57PM How can you nominate a product which is beyond vaporware?

The Notion Ink Adam has officially killed any hype I had for an apple tablet, the ability to read websites and watch 1080p in the sunlight, coupled with the smoothness of the Tegra chip and a subsidized promise of $300 has me beyond excited. Android has been hamstrung by qualcom chips for too long and I think Tegra will mark a renaissance for the platform, especially since apple has yet to show up with hardware that competes.

Android is still not the ideal tablet OS, but if notion ink keeps with custom apps it could certainly get close. The fact is this is EXACTLY the hardware I want in a tablet, a screen that does both monochromatic reading and bright video playback with ease, and a fast, efficient processor. If apple cannot at least match the hardware Notion Ink is putting out, they'd better stay home.

Exclusive: Google Nexus One hands-on, video, and first impressions {Engadget}

Jan 4th 2010 1:06PM GAME PERFORMANCE: A Quake benchmark at a reasonable fps would have me vastly more interested. Speed is one of the biggest reasons iphone developers haven't traveled out of their gilded cage, and I'd like to see android become a serious contender in the game space a la apple.

Android is the definitive platform for retrogaming, but any sluggish handset can run most old games adequately - and you need a keypad to do it right, anyway. 3d performance - and a zippy touch interface - will go a long way to bridging the gap between phones and consoles.

I don't expect any phone to reinvent the polygon-spewing wheel before tegra2 handsets start dropping, but any progress in that direction is great news.

How would you change Motorola's Droid? {Engadget}

Dec 20th 2009 9:14AM @yulebellow you're not kidding, the droid will be a paperweight when Tegra 1&2 cell phones start dropping like mortar fire. Personally, mine's going to be hand-me down to someone else on my plan, but a one-year contract would be perfect for anyone without this option.

WE WANT TO BUY MORE PHONES! Why does Verizon hate us for this?

AT&T to offer 'incentives' to customers willing to limit data usage {Engadget}

Dec 18th 2009 3:19AM Make data plans OPTIONAL! OPTIONAL!

Plenty of people would rather use wifi than 3g, and not have to pay an extra $40 a month.

Unlimited Data plans are around because they force most people to buy more than they can use. Make them optional, and you save your network the hassle.

Sony hints at PSN-for-pay once again {Engadget}

Dec 16th 2009 8:07PM @Yoyodyne pretty much, none of my friends with 360s have XBL Gold.

They don't want to pay $15 a month to get their asses handed to them. It makes online play a hardcore-only feature. Casual users just don't bother to try it out.

Sony want its casual users online, buying trinkets in HOME, it would be contrary to their whole philosophy to start charging for it. It would be like Nintendo saying no more Mario this generation.

Motorola's Shop4apps online Android app store discovered {Engadget}

Dec 16th 2009 7:51PM After LOOSING two applications to the ever-shifting Android store, having a locker of content that won't disappear with my money sounds awesome!
