SlashGear Week in Review: Week 5 2009

SlashGear Week in Review: Week 5 2009

We opened the week with our first-impressions of the T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve 8900, a surprisingly adept smartphone that's managed to impress despite the absence of 3G.  We've also been playing with Vuzix's iWear AV230XL OLED video headset, and the VIA Artigo A2000 Barebone Storage Server.  Finally, if you prefer your gadgets with a bit of (artificial) flesh on their bones, take a look at our Orbita Mouse unboxing; we'll have the full review this coming week.

SlashGear Week in Review: Week 3 2009

Things are traditionally quiet in the tech world the week following CES, but we've seen our fair share of intrigue over the past seven days.  Biggest news, in terms of share impact at least, is Steve Jobs' surprise leave-of-absence due to "health concerns", which has managed to overshadow both the teased redsn0w iPod touch 2G Jailbreak and rumors that the upcoming Mac mini refresh will use NVIDIA's Ion chipset.

In cellphones, it looks like the Helio Ocean 2 is almost ready to ship, but it could be too little, too late now that the Palm Pre is catching all the headlines.  Latest Pre rumor is that Vodafone UK will be picking it up as an exclusive; for all the details on Palm's new smartphone, check out this round-up post and then head over to Pre Community.

Pantech Duo 2 clears FCC

The Pantech Duo 2 has cleared the FCC, with the same dual-sliding design - incorporating both numeric and QWERTY keyboards - but now running Windows Mobile 6.1.  The original Duo was better known as the Helio Ocean, but there was also a GSM version on AT&T.  The Duo 2 (aka the C820) has a 2-megapixel camera and dual-band 850/1900 GSM/EDGE/WCDMA.

Samsung unveils 8GB microSD cards

There are times that I wonder what I would do with a couple of gigs of space on my phone. Well, I used to think that before I got my Helio Ocean, now I've loaded it to the brim with music and I long for more space on my microSD card. It looks like Samsung will come to the rescue with their new, larger-capacity cards.

E-Tech winners announced from CTIA 2007

Yes, CTIA is over, but the news isn't finished yet. They have announced their E-Tech Award winners for this year's show.

The coveted Best in Show Award wend to Alltel Wireless for their Celltop technology. Celltop will provide customers with an easier way to access, manage and organize information stored in their phones.

Curiously, my two top picks, the HTC Shift and Helio Ocean were both absent from the list of winners. Check out the full list here, and check back for updates on these products as they become available.

Favorites from CTIA Wireless 2007

Favorites from CTIA Wireless 2007

Today marks the end of CTIA Wireless 2007. We've seen a lot of phones and gadgets over the past week, but what were your favorites, and which vendor were you impressed with the most?

For me, my favorite product is a tie. I can't choose between the Helio Ocean and the HTC Shift. They're both awesome in their respective categories, so it must remain a tie for me. I will say that the Sound Leaf Bone Conduction Receiver Microphone has to be the winner for strangest new product. It's really cool, but still very strange.

Kyocera saddle messaging handset with sub-par screen

Kyocera saddle messaging handset with sub-par screen

Anyone who knows me is aware that I'm not a critical person.  In fact I'll put up with most things if you give me a chocolate biscuit.  However, I'm beginning to think someone at Kyocera is taking the proverbial, if the internal screen of this new M1000 messaging handset is anything to go by.  First off, no chocolate biscuit so no-holds-barred I'm afraid; what the mascara-arse were they thinking, putting that tiny little scrap of a display in there?!
