Motorola Droid 3 Latest Review ?

Motorola Droid 3 Latest Review ?

     The third installment of a trilogy is typically the most satisfying. The Empire Falls, Frodo destroys the ring, Cinderella goes back in  time. (Okay, that’s a stretch.) Our protagonist in this tale is the Droid 3, which bears an uncanny resemblance to its dad and granddad–  but Verizon’s added a few new components and made some […]

HTC Wildfire S Latest review?

HTC Wildfire S Latest review?

Following the commercial success (and technical disappointment) of the original Wildfire — which featured a miserly 528MHz CPU and QVGA display — HTC has returned with the Wildfire S ($290). Like the Desire S and Incredible S, the company is sticking to its formula of providing incremental updates to stay competitive for 2011. Not only is this little […]

HTC EVO View 4G Latest review ?

It’s not often that we feel a keen sense of déjà vu while writing a review, but here we are. The EVO View 4G ($399.99) is a first, but also something you’ve most definitely seen before. This tablet is, for all intents and purposes, the HTC Flyer: it has the same 7-inch display, aluminum build, single-core 1.5GHz […]

HTC EVO 3D Latest review ?

The first time we saw the rumored Supersonic we were blown away. HTC and Google had just wowed us with the Nexus One, and here we were looking at something even better — a 4.3-inch phone with WiMAX wrapped in a white body. This prototype was buggy and had abysmal battery life, but it was real. Four […]

HTC Sensation 4G Latest Review?

HTC Sensation 4G Latest Review?

The HTC Sensation 4G for T-Mobile is arguably one of the carrier’s best smartphones ever. It’s packed to the brim with features and impressive specs, it’s lightning quick, incredibly well-built, and it runs HTC’s latest and greatest Sense user interface. Can it compete with other Android devices like the T-Mobile G2x, though? How does a dual-core […]

OTA Gingerbread 2.3 update now available for Droid X

Android 2.3 hit the web for Droid X owners earlier this week, but that update previously required a tethered, manual install.

Motorola DROID X2 Latest hands-on

There isn’t anything quite like a dual-core Android handset to brighten up your Saturday, huh? We have just spent some time with the Motorola DROID X2 for Verizon Wireless, and while the external casing hasn’t changed much, this is indeed a very new phone. For starters, like we mentioned, that super-fast 1GHz CPU that powered […]

Keepin’ it real fake: the 1.2GHz Dell Streak that can make phone calls and run Gingerbread

You know, knockoffs are usually meant to be downgrades from the real deal.
