Droid Pro Review

Droid Pro Review

Android devices may be storming the market in terms of sheer numbers but, with a few unusual exceptions, most manufacturers have stuck to basic touchscreen candybars or horizontal QWERTY sliders. Motorola's latest handset, the Verizon DROID PRO, seemingly looks to Canada for its inspiration: its distinctly BlackBerry styling mark it out as a more serious messaging device. Has Motorola beaten RIM at its own game, or is the DROID PRO a form-factor footstep too far? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

The Daily Slash: November 9 2010

Let me talk to you for a moment about a couple of the odder things that happened today, and this is outside the story you're going to hear about in the special "The Daily Slash" section you all know and love. First, there's a lot of ports, ROMS, and hacks flying around the smartphone world on a day-to-day, but today there was a rather important one surfacing: Android to iPhone. Like two rival gangs having a child together. No violence between them yet, but someone DID get shot today - a Galaxy Tab. In response, Angry Birds released 45 new levels, and someone records a UFO on an HTC EVO 4G. TRON throws a card into the hat with their 3rd giant trailer, iPhone's GLASSGATE ramps up, and all Apple handhelds grow a little tail. All this and more, today, on THE DAILY SLASH!

Carrying a Torch for RIM – the Gartenberg Take

Carrying a Torch for RIM – the Gartenberg Take

This was a momentous week for RIM. They announced the new BlackBerry Torch a capacitive touch screen slider along with the latest version of their platform, BlackBerry 6. In a year where phones and platforms are changing dramatically, will this be enough for RIM to slow down market share loss and help win the hearts and minds of consumers that may be looking elsewhere for additional functionality beyond what RIM has traditionally provided?

RIM Lands BlackPad.com, Tablet Rumors Heat Up

RIM Lands BlackPad.com, Tablet Rumors Heat Up

It's been a little bit of time since we last heard a rumor about the (supposedly) inevitable tablet from Research In Motion, so now's as good as time as any. The company based out of Waterloo has bought a new web address, apparently making sure that they get to keep the name, "BlackPad." It's changed hands in the past, and so the current belief is that RIM paid some kind of sum to the previous owner, but those details are missing from this new report.

The Daily Slash: July 5th 2010

It's now been a day since the festivities of your Fourth of July adventures should have ended, but considering today was a "bank holiday," we wouldn't be too surprised to hear that you're still pretty preoccupied with other activities. But, if you're reading this, then you must know what's really important. Right? Right. So, with that out of the way, welcome to tonight's edition of The Daily Slash. In the Best of R3 Media, we've got a Charm from Motorola, a Gravity Phone, and some good news for one lucky customer who Intercepted a device. And then in the Dredge 'Net, we've got quick chargers for electric cars on the horizon, fingerprint sensors going into photocopiers, and Sony's cut down on their eReader prices.

First Hands on with KIN One and Two – Where Mobile and Social Networks Collide

First Hands on with KIN One and Two – Where Mobile and Social Networks Collide

The KIN embargo is now lifted and I can now talk about the devices experience as well as pricing. Here's some initial thoughts.

Device pricing - The KIN One is $49 and the KIN Two is $99. That price includes a $100 rebate. That's pretty reasonable and in line with most high end feature or low end "smart" devices. The truth is KIN is neither of those things, although I expect a lot of folks to compare it to one, the other or both. The reality is the KIN is really a cloud phone. Its value is derived from cloud services, as well as the KIN Studio on the web. There's a lot that's different about these devices and a good deal of what Microsoft does here will be dependent on how well they can message this to their target demographic.
