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 ?

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 ?

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 Flyer Latest Full review

HTC Flyer Latest Full review

Over the past couple of years, HTC has rapidly built up an enviable reputation (and bank balance) in the smartphone space with a succession of feature-rich, smartly designed, and innovative handsets. TheHD2 introduced us to the 4.3-inch form factor, the EVO 4G ushered in the era of 720p video recording, and the Legend wrapped itself inside a never-before-seen […]

OTA Gingerbread 2.3 update now available for Droid X

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. As of today, the update is available over the air, so cable-free purists can finally start cooking with Gingerbread on their Droid X handsets. We first saw 2.3 popping up on the device in March, but if […]

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

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. In the case of Dell’s Streak 7 tablet, its KIRF version actually has a few advantages over the real deal — it can make phone calls, has a bigger (3000mAh) battery, comes preloaded with Android 2.3, runs at 1.2GHz, and happens to be cheaper […]

Samsung Galaxy S II Latest review

Samsung Galaxy S II Latest review

If you don’t already know all about the Samsung Galaxy S II, where have you been the past two months? The successor to one of the most popular Android handsets to date carries a burden of expectation almost as sizable as its 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen. It promises to be thinner, lighter, and faster than the […]

Nexus S 4G launch on Sprint now official: May 8th for $200

You’ve been able to pre-order the Sprint-ified version of the Nexus S for a good while now, but it’s always good to add a concrete date for the end of the anticipation and the beginning of the Android 2.3 fun. That date has now been officially marked as May 8th. That’s when your Pure Google device will […]

Samsung makes sure you know the Galaxy S II is really, really thin

Samsung seems to be killing time until it finally ships the Galaxy S II by making promo videos for itsdual-core superphone. The latest in a series of ads for the S II spends a few precious seconds reminding us just how excellently thin it is, and gives us a particular usage scenario where that slim profile […]

HTC Sensation procures online real estate, launches sign-up page

Desire HD tries on Sensation’s Sense 3.0 suit, needs some tailoring for it to fit

So you got all excited after seeing HTC’s latest UI on the Sensation, but were dismayed to discover your hoary handset wouldn’t be getting the same Sense 3.0 love? As usual, the folks at xda-developers have just the tonic for what ails you… as long as you own a Desire HD. Yup, a clever fellow by the name […]

HTC Flyer hits UK pre-order status at £600, comes with 3G and 32GB of storage

The Carphone Warehouse is listing a £600 ($983) fee for owning the HTC Flyer, which is more or less a match for the €669 price Amazon.de is […]

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc review

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc review

Like all good things Sony Ericsson, the Xperia Arc didn’t wait for an official announcement to make itself known. First appearing on a set of teasing posters at CES in January, it confounded us with a ridiculously thin (8.7mm / 0.3in) profile and an unorthodox concave rear, whose sighting was followed up with the revelation of […]

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Latest review

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Latest review

The PlayStation Phone. We’ve had quite the intimate history with this gamepad-equipped slider, learning of its secretive existence way back in August and then handling a prototype unit in January, so you’ll forgive us for feeling sentimental and still entertaining our pet name for it. The Sony Ericsson marketing gurus renamed it the Xperia Play when it finally went […]
