Nintendo 3DS Review

Nintendo 3DS Review

Nintendo has a reputation for kooky, eccentric products, and on that front the 3DS is no different. Upgrading the now-familiar clamshell console with a glasses-free 3D display, it promises a new breed of games, impromptu social gaming with StreetPass, and the instant allure of 3D photography and Augmented Reality.

Just about every gadget that wants a place in your pocket - your cellphone and PMP included - wants to take care of your gaming needs as well, and so the 3DS has more competition than ever before. Can the console deliver, or do its eccentricities count it out? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Motorola XOOM Review

Motorola XOOM Review

Motorola's big launch of CES 2011 and the first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet on the market, the Motorola XOOM has a lot to live up to. In its haste to reach Verizon shelves, the XOOM could seem a little half-baked; it doesn't get Flash Player support for another few weeks, and won't have 4G until an update sometime in Q2. Still, as the iPad has shown, there are undoubtedly benefits to being first out of the gate, and there's undoubtedly plenty on offer. Can the XOOM bypass pricing skepticism? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Orb Music MP-1 Review

Orb Music MP-1 Review

Whole-house audio isn't new, and - as Sonos has shown - it isn't necessarily complicated, but nor has it generally been all that affordable.

Check out the full review after the cut.

Orb TV VP-1 $99 WiFi video streamer promises Hulu support

Orb's $69 MP-1 WiFi audio streamer was good, but we couldn't help but wish it worked with the place-shifting software's video capabilities too; it seems the company was listening, as they've just outed the Orb TV. Priced at $99, the Orb TV VP-1 looks just like its audio-only sibling, but adds a composite/component video output alongside the stereo audio output, so you can hook up your TV.
