How to manually install Android 2.2 Download on your Nexus One.Active Link (Guide) ?

Droid Incredible 2 Latest review

It wasn’t that long ago that we were jonesing for a Nexus One on Verizon. What HTC gave us instead was the Droid Incredible, with the same 1GHz Snapdragon CPU and gorgeous 3.7-inch AMOLED display — not to mention a better camera (8 megapixel vs. five), 8GB of built-in flash storage, an optical trackpad, HTC’s Sense UI […]

Samsung Galaxy Pro Latest review?

In a world of smartphones with ever-increasing screen sizes and disappearing physical keyboards, the candybar form factor is becoming rarer and rarer.

MOPS Shadow T800 brings analog joystick, hearts & spades to Android

MOPS Shadow T800 brings analog joystick, hearts & spades to Android

Sure, the Xperia Play may have that slick gamepad slider, shoulder buttons, and Sony Playstation’s official blessing, but can it hold its own against the Shadow’s analog pad? Probably, because despite the new contender’s self described status of a “mobile Playstation,” its lack of shoulder buttons won’t help it play any of those Xperia-exclusive PSone games it […]

After rolling out the world’s first GLONASS-enabled smartphone, Russia is thinking bigger — it’s tablet time.

Droid Charge Latest review

We’re still shaking our heads and sighing longingly at the performance of Samsung’s Galaxy S II, a phone that wowed us in Europe but likely won’t be coming to American shores for some time — and who knows what it’ll look like when it does. But don’t get too down, dear reader, because here comes another […]

Motorola intros dueling portrait QWERTY Android options for Sprint: XPRT and Titanium

It took ‘em long enough, but it seems as if The Now Network has managed to snap up Motorola’s Droid Pro… just seven months after Verizon Wireless did so. For whatever reason, Sprint’s dubbing its version the XPRT, with the same 3.1-inch HVGA touchpanel, full QWERTY keyboard, 1GHz CPU and Android 2.2 loaded. It’ll go for $129.99 […]

Sidekick 4G Latest review

It’s been nearly two years since we last reviewed a T-Mobile Sidekick, and it would be a vast understatement to say things have changed. Then, they were designed by Danger and manufactured by Sharp, and were the messaging phone of choice. Today, following fiasco and failure, the Sidekick empireis in ruins. But good ideas and their originators live […]

LG Optimus Big brings a 4.3-inch NOVA display and 1GHz dual-core to the superphone party

It’s only been a few weeks since the Optimus 2X crossed the desk of our European review bureau as the first known dual-core smartphone in the universe. Now LG’s wunderkind has made its way across the pond and landed on US soil to be reborn as the G2x on T-Mobile. While the hardware remains the same elegant Tegra 2-infused […]

Acer Liquid MT Latest review

Acer may not be a huge player in the North American smartphone market, but it has slowly been improving its game, and it’s had some measure of success with its Liquid E — which, for a little while at least, was one of the better budget-priced Android options around. That phone has now gotten a […]
