HTC Evo Deflects Bullet Aimed at Chest, Saves Nightclub Valet's Life

An Atlanta, Georgia man has his cell phone to thank for saving his life. John Garber, a parking attendant at a local nightclub, was shot in the chest by two men after one of them was thrown out of the club earlier in the evening. Garber was struck in the breast, but his cell phone deflected the bullet. (A 'Ha!' to naysayers who thought the Evo was too bulky.) He sustained only minor injuries,...

'New' HTC Evo Allegedly Sold Preloaded With Porn

When Steve Jobs suggested that you buy Android if you want porn, we didn't think that the Google OS would make it this easy.

Is Google's Nexus One Doomed to Obscurity? The Big Apple Thinks So

When Google launched the Nexus One way back in January, the smartphone was supposed to be a serious contender against the iPhone, and was expected to serve as exemplar of the Android handset. By circumventing the carriers' brick-and-mortar stores, Google also hoped to usher in a new era in cell phone sales; however, it appears to have doomed itself to obscurity, instead. With no presence in...
