However, cost-cutting and some frustrating design decisions could undermine all that. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

HTC Conference Speaker hits FCC with stereo party mode

Details of HTC's latest peripheral, the HTC Conference Speaker, have been revealed by the FCC, though the Bluetooth speakerphone isn't entirely as sensible as the business-centric name might suggest. A UFO-styled combination of brushed metal and plastic, the Conference Speaker can be used as a standalone mono speakerphone for up to 10hrs of hands-free calling, or a pair of them can be linked wirelessly for stereo audio playback.

HTC Titan Review

HTC Titan Review

Rarely does a gadget's name quite so well describe its nature, as is the case with the HTC Titan. A huge 4.7-inch display packed into a battleship-strong metal chassis, the TItan is an unapologetic slab of Windows Phone 7. Question is, can Mango provide sufficient sweetness to balance the Titan's brutal charms, or are HTC's big ambitions in for an equally big fall? Check out the full SlashGear review to find out.

Verizon HTC Rhyme goes on sale

Verizon HTC Rhyme goes on sale

Verizon has begun selling the Rhyme, the Android smartphone that's manufacturer HTC insists is definitely not obsessed with ladies.

BlackBerry Torch 9810 Review

It's been more than a year since we reviewed the BlackBerry Torch 9800, RIM's hybrid touch/QWERTY slider, and while the company says the smartphone has gone on to be one of their more popular devices, we couldn't get past the underwhelming screen resolution and easily choked processor. Now, RIM has returned with the BlackBerry Torch 9810, with a faster CPU, more pixels and a copy of the BlackBerry 7 OS. Is it enough to flick the Torch onto full-beam?

BlackBerry Bold 9930 Review

BlackBerry Bold 9930 Review

RIM's on familiar ground with the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930. QWERTY candybars have made the company's reputation, and while the Torch series - whether slider or all-touch - may offer interesting variations on the theme, the Bold is where the Canadians will be judged. Now offering both a touchscreen and a physical keyboard, along with a speedy CPU and slimmed-down chassis, on paper this is arguably the best BlackBerry today. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Nokia E6 Review

Nokia E6 Review

BlackBerry may be the name associated with QWERTY messaging phones, but there's a vocal cadre of Nokia users all too keen to talk about the merits of the Finnish company's keyboard-blessed candybars. The E72 met with mixed reactions, failing to quite capture affection the way its E71 predecessor did; now we have the E6 (aka Nokia E6-00), pairing keyboard and touchscreen and offering a taste of the latest Symbian flavor, Anna. Is the E6 enough to distract us from the rapid approach of Nokia's first Windows Phones? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo Review

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo arrives with something of a personality problem. Where the XPERIA Play was resolute in its gaming ambitions, and the XPERIA Arc promised to put Sony's living room prowess into a pocket-friendly package, the Neo takes on the competitive mid-tier mainstream segment, Android for the every-man. With luminaries like HTC's Desire S keeping the masses connected, can the Neo carve its own niche? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
