postheadericon Nokia C7 rumored for T-Mobile launch under Astound moniker, to cost $80 on April 6th

If you’ve been listening to the Engadget Mobile podcast lately, you’ll know that we don’t much like this trend of using verbs as phone names, but T-Mobile clearly hasn’t gotten the message, as one of its upcoming handsets is rumored to be called the Astound. What exactly this rebadged Nokia C7 is supposed to astound us with, we’re not really sure. We’ve seen its Clear Black Display already, which is very nice, but we’ve also seen the dead OS walking that is its Symbian installation. Still, for $80 on contract, it doesn’t necessarily have to compete with the crème de la Gingerbread to be an appealing option. Look out for it early next month, waving the Magenta flag with pride.

postheadericon Nintendo posts first 3DS advert for the US, whets growing appetites (video)

For the last few remaining souls in North America not aware that the Nintendo 3DS is coming later this month, the Japanese company has rolled out its first US commercial. Shockingly enough, it doesn’t display anything not already announced, but now would be kind of late to be springing surprises on us anyhow, right? It’s a portable console with glasses-free 3D — that works reasonably well — and it’s made by Nintendo, which means half the people on your street will probably own by this time next month. Jump past the break to see the American commercial and its earlier-released UK sibling — you’ll find a fun juxtaposition of presentation styles when comparing the two.

postheadericon Alaska’s Iditarod sled dog race gains GPS, cellphones and live streaming

We were actually pretty shocked at just how stellar the AT&T coverage was during a recent jaunt to Anchorage and Fairbanks, but we’re guessing it’ll take a satellite phone or two to make calls from the Alaskan wilderness. Whatever the case, the 2011 edition of the Iditarod is being hailed as the most technologically advanced ever, with mushers having “custom-made sleds with adjustable runners for varying snow conditions and, starting this year, GPS devices to check on their progress.” Phones and live streaming arrangements will be keeping the world tuned in to the 1,150 mile race from Anchorage to Nome, and if fate has its way, the hot-natured, Red Stripe-drinking kid from Jamaica will take home the gold. C’mon — who wouldn’t want to see Cool Runnings 2: Dog Sled Edition?
