Sense “has escaped the phone” HTC claims: digital home media, 4G video calling & more

HTC has been fleshing out some of its ambitions for the HTC Sense system, as the platform continues to develop from a simple smartphone UI to a more comprehensive multimedia system. According to Drew Bamford, HTC's head of User Experience, "Sense has escaped the phone"; he envisages HTC using the platform as a way of "getting cool content onto phones", starting with ebooks as on the European Kobo-powered service, but then potentially extending the company's partnership with Netflix on Windows Phone 7.

Plenty to live up to, then, not least the price tag; check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Sharper Image Literati gets reviewed: finicky, buggy & generally bad

Sharper Image's Literati ereader is already off to a bad start: it costs $159, whereas the third-gen WiFi only Kindle is a mere $139.   Still, we could forgive the Literati if the functionality was up to scratch; unfortunately, according to The Digital Reader, that's far from the case.  They've found their Literati review unit to be buggy, frustrating to use and - most damningly - unable to actually load ebooks.

Samsung Galaxy Tab hands-on [Video]

Samsung's Galaxy Tab is official, and we have to say we're impressed. We grabbed some hands-on time with the 7-inch Android 2.2 slate right after Samsung announced it, keen to see whether it's actually the filofax replacement they suggested it was. Turns out, though it may be down three inches on the iPad, that doesn't mean it's especially less usable.
