Teen Ink: Make Yourself Heard

Want to be the next TeenTechBlog? Dont count on it lol, but for those among us who share our desire to express ourselves to the broader world despite not yet even at drinking age, we would like to inform you about about an incredible institution, TeenInk.

Founded in 1989, TeenInk publishes submitted work written by teenagers (at no charge for submission) in their national monthly magazine, their website, and if you’re good enough, their books of collected works. Sorry– they dont pay you for your work.

But if it offers any consolation, we don’t make a penny off this blog either. Check it out! And if you do write something, or have written for them in the past, let us know in the comments.

New Music Phone for T-Mobile to Brag About (finally!)

Motorola Rokr E8

Wow, this summer is really the season for new, innovative, and often touchscreen, cell phones– iPhone 3G, LG Vu and Dare, Samsung Instinct… the list can go on (and can be read about here). However, one particular carrier is noticeably absent from that prestigious list: T-Mobile. Not to fear, though, the Motorola Rokr E8 is here– well on July 7 it will be, according to Cnet’s blog Crave— and its generating a lot of excitement; it already won top awards at the Consumer Electronics Show this year, including the People’s Voice award and best upcoming cell phone product (discussed by us earlier). But this phone is very different from the previous models we’ve discussed in the past for this summer…ITS NOT A TOUCHSCREEN! Yes, you heard me. Rather, this phone attempts to become the ultimate Music player Cell phone, or what we call the Mp3 phone for the sake of conciseness. Ever. Hit the more link for details!!

Another iPhone Competitor on AT&T?

Samsung Omnia

We all know that AT&T is the proud carrier of the iPhone, and also the iPhone competitor LG Vu, but now rumor is they are about to add another all touchscreen phone to their lineup. This new phone comes courtesy of Samsung, called the Samsung Omnia. And drum roll for the features which come courtesy of Boy Genius Report:

  • GPS with AT&T Navigator
  • AT&T Mobile TV (lets you watch live TV)
  • AT&T Music and Video
  • AT&T 3G
  • Mp3 Player with either 8 GB or 16 GB of memory built in (similar to iPhone 3G?)
  • 5 Megapixel Camera with Face Detection
  • 3.2 inch touchscreen
  • Windows Mobile 6.1

Rumors for release are this fall, but nothing has been made official yet, including the price for this latest touchscreen. So for those thinking about purchasing one of these new touchscreens which one will you get– this one, the Vu, iPhone 3G, switch to Verizon and get one of their new phones? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
