Nokia E75 Hands-On

02/17/2009, We wanted to see if the physical design of the E75 was as good as it looked in the pictures. The short answer is “yes”. Nokia doesn’t disappoint on that front and the phone feels solid. We found the keyboard to be a bit large and the...

Nokia 6170 Navigator Hands-On

02/16/2009, [Mobile World Congress] The more I travel, and the more I like the 6170 Navigator and Nokia Maps: it’s a navigation system that uses maps stored locally (no data download!) and Nokia users have access to worldwide maps – free. That’s...

Motorola Krave ZN4 Hands-On

01/27/2009, We’ve had some play time with the Motorola Krave and we were pleasantly surprised. Given the number of poorly designed touch phones out there, it was with anxiety that we charged the phone. Externally, the Moto Krave ZN4 is cute and reminds us...

Samsung OMNIA Review

01/22/2009, OMNIA means “everything” in Latin, and given its feature list, it’s fair to assume that this means that it can do everything that one could expect from a modern smartphone. The question is: how good is it at what it does. In this review,...

Beats Tour Review: The Mobile Monster ‘Beats by Dr. Dre’

01/16/2009, A surprising number of people seems happy to spend a relative fortune on a shiny new music player, only to listen with the headphones supplied in the box – a box, mind you, which was usually designed in California, made in China, and is arguably more...

Sony Cybershot DSC-G3 Wifi Camera – hands on

01/12/2009, [CES 2009] I got my hands on the famous WiFi camera that Sony launched at CES. I was given an on-screen demo of how easy it is to upload a picture on the main multimedia websites such as Picasa or Youtube from the device’s basic web browser. Note...

01/07/2009, [CES 2009] We just got out the Sony press conference and we got our hands on the highly rumored “pocket size” (if you have large pockets) Sony VAIO. Personally, I love the design and I would get one to cover tech conferences. Some people think...

11/21/2008, Now that I have used my Voodoo envy for a few weeks, it’s time to share how it worked for me. Voodoo is a powerful name in PC Gaming hardware, but let’s be clear: this is definitely *not* a gaming machine. The Voodoo envy is an ultra-light...
