The HTC Universal: What do you want to know? - Engadget - www.engadget.comThe HTC Universal: What do you want to know?

Man, if there was ever one gadget we were definitely not expecting to have fall into our laps this week, it’s the HTC Universal. It’s definitely big for something you’re supposed to use to make phone calls, but with great size comes great power, right? (There’s a good chance you have the spec sheet for this one memorized: this baby has Windows Mobile 5.0, WiFi, Bluetooth, a one megapixel camera, QWERTY keyboard, a VGA touch screen, a 520MHz processor, 96MB of ROM, 128MB of RAM, and an SD memory card slot.)

Another big score for T-Mobile USA. Yesterday we were able to confirm that they’ll be getting the HTC Tornado, that new Windows Mobile-powered smartphone with built-in WiFi, now we’ve learned from an inside source that beginning in October T-Mob subscribers here in the US will be able to get all cozy with the HTC Wizard, too. No exact release date, but the price will probably (but not definitely) be somewhere around $400 or $500. This one probably won’t be an exclusive, since since supposedly Cingular is also getting the Wizard, but it’s good to see that T-Mobile is finally getting some decent phones, right?"

Verizon cutting EV-DO prices? - Engadget - www.engadget.comerizon cutting EV-DO prices?

Is Verizon Wireless getting ready to drop what it charges for accessing EV-DO on a laptop? Reuters is reporting that they’re expected to announce a price cut from $80 to $60 a month in order to rope in as many new subscribers as possible before Sprint Nextel has a chance to go nationwide with its own high-speed EV-DO network. We’re completely and utterly addicted to EV-DO now, but even sixty bucks a month is probably more than they should be charging if they really, really, really want to expand their subscriber base. Don’t just try and edge out Sprint: if Verizon made the price competitive with DSL and cable they’d easily scoop up a fair number of people who’d rather have EV-DO everywhere than just broadband at home.
