When you leave your laptop behind

When you leave your laptop behind

We've all heard how the phone in your pocket is really a PC. Well, a few weeks ago I put that to the test literally. I left for a week of heavy business travel in three cities to see if my phone (actually a series of phones) could replace my MacBook Pro. For my tests, I carried an iPhone 3GS with a Mophie JuicePack Air, a Palm Pre Plus and an HTC HD2. I also had a Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard which works with the HD2.

Apple Stores Now Able to Sell Unlocked iPhones [update]

Apple Stores Now Able to Sell Unlocked iPhones [update]

Well, it looks like the world is seriously at a strange tilt. We're getting word that, as of today, Apple Stores are going to be able to start selling iPhones, free of contract, and at list price. That means $499 for 8GB, $599 for 16GB, and $699 for for 32GB. There's rumors that this has something to do with the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus showing up on AT&T's network some time here in the next couple months, and the fact that AT&T now has a 3G-enabled Google Nexus One is nothing to scoff at either. Times, they-are-a-changin', and it looks like Apple is definitely on that boat as well.

Sagem Orga SIMFi embeds WiFi onto a 3G SIM card

Sagem Orga SIMFi embeds WiFi onto a 3G SIM card

What if, rather than buying a MiFi or using a WiFi router app like on the Palm Pre Plus, you could stick a SIM in any device and have a shared 3G connection?  That's what Sagem Orga and Telefonica are promising; they've developed the SIMFi, a USIM card with an embedded WiFi radio that, when dropped into any standard handset, can share the 3G HSPA connection with various WiFi clients as an instant access point.

SlashGear Week in Review: Week 4 2010

SlashGear Week in Review: Week 4 2010

Another week has passed and brought with it lots of cool new gear and the requisite number of new Apple rumors. Welcome to this week's Week in Review. I suspect that the guys at Google who pick the names of the Android OS versions may have been dieting when they started to name Android updates after tasty treats. We learned that the next Android version may be called frozen yogurt. Doesn’t quite roll off the tongue.

LG G3 hands-on: Quad HD and Lasers for 2014’s flagship

LG G3 hands-on: Quad HD and Lasers for 2014’s flagship

The LG G3 has been officially revealed, and while the headline specs - the 5.5-inch QHD 2560 x 1440 display, the 13-megapixel camera - have been leaked, what's really interesting about the new flagship are the details. LG has pushed the hardware of course (this time around, the phone even gets lasers), but after lingering criticisms it overlooks usability in the process, this time the feature rush is more considered. Read on for some first-impressions.

EVGA Tegra Note 7 Review

EVGA Tegra Note 7 Review

The stylus was dead, and now it's back. What once was the hallmark of cheap touchscreens and finger-unfriendly software has, thanks in no small part to Samsung's efforts with its Galaxy Note range, had a second-wind; even the popularity of aftermarket capacitive pens for the iPad suggests not every iOS user agrees with Steve Jobs that "if you see a stylus, they blew it." Now NVIDIA is wading into the fray, targeting not only pen control but a low price too, with the Tegra Note 7. Set to be sold under different brands in different countries - such as the EVGA model on the SlashGear test bench - the Tegra Note 7 claims similar functionality to Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0 but at just $199. Over-ambitious? Read on for our full review.

HTC One Max appears in early testing

HTC One Max appears in early testing

If you're not all about the smaller iteration of the HTC One in the most recent release from the company in the HTC One Mini, it would appear that HTC is also headed in the opposite direction with a bit more of a palm-filler. This device is tipped as the HTC One Max, bringing a 5.9-inch display to the market (we must assume) sooner than later, aimed directly at the likes of Samsung's own plus-sized hero in the Samsung Galaxy Note III.

Fan TV aims for set-top future with all-touch interface

Fan TV aims for set-top future with all-touch interface

The company that's bringing Fan TV to the market is not a new one. It's not necessarily an old one, either: still considered a "startup" as they released their "Fanhattan" app back in 2011, they've since moved this streaming video environment to the web and now - surprise - to the television as well. While the machine itself does not yet have a price point or a release date as such, co-founder of Fanhattan Gilles BianRosa spoke up this afternoon: they mean to take over.
