SlashGear Week in Review – Week 3 2012

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 3 2012

Incase you're wondering where Week 2 went, we've got that for you too in the form of a whole mass of CES 2012 wrap-ups, complete with videos, photos, and every bit of awesome information you could have ever hoped for in what would otherwise be a "Week in Review" post here on SlashGear. As for the week we just got done with, there's certainly a lot of aftershocks to be had as well, plus a whole mess of SOPA. As you may or may not know, this very moment in Washington there is a brand new bill numbered 1981 that's much worse than the "piracy" bills SOPA and PIPA we just destroyed - so get excited about a new war here and now!

HBO Go Could Be the Next Netflix

HBO Go Could Be the Next Netflix

As a Time Warner Cable customer, I was one of the last cable subscribers out there to get access to HBO Go. For months now, many of you have probably been using the streaming service, and to see a column about it now might surprise you. But don’t hold it against me -- I was a victim of the oddly contentious relationship between Time Warner Cable and its former corporate overlord, Time Warner.

The Best of CES 2012

The Best of CES 2012

Welcome to our massive "best-of" wrap-up for CES 2012, complete with everything from smartphones to PCs and headphones and back, topped off with our own "most used gear" section for the curious. What you'll find is that though there were more exhibitors, attendees, and media attention payed to the show than ever before, the overall result was a lot of the same gear re-hashed with a few new specifications. Pay special close attention to the conclusion of this post for a bit of a whopper if you're a big fan of the largest show of the year here in the United States.

Why Are Mobile Device Ads So Bad?

Why Are Mobile Device Ads So Bad?

It has become fashionable to praise Apple's serene iPhone ads and rail against its competitors advertising, with Verizon Wireless’ obnoxious DROID and LTE ads drawing particular ire. In case you don’t watch any television or live outside the U.S., the Verizon Wireless ads include women battling cyborgs (this has to do with smartphones how, exactly?), people skydiving and firebombing cities with lightning balls (shouldn’t Homeland Security be intervening?), and unidentified objects slicing through cities (not an ad for a disaster movie, but a visual pun for the DROID RAZR). Meanwhile, Apple’s ads calmly explain the latest features and apps, sometimes with bold adjectives (“magical,” much?) but an even tone and methodical manner.

Nokia 700 Review

Nokia 700 Review

You could easily make a case against the Nokia 700. Launched on the eve of Nokia's Windows Phone drive, but running the oft-maligned Symbian, on paper the 700 has "too little, too late" written all over it. Still, Symbian may be on its way out, but it still has a place on Nokia's roadmap for a few years, and the 700 debuts Belle, the newest version of the OS. Could the Nokia 700 really be the phone that leaves us lamenting Symbian? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

iPhone 4S Review [Updated]

iPhone 4S Review [Updated]

Familiar and yet new, the iPhone 4S may not look different from the outside, but inside it's a very different beast. With its fifth generation smartphone, Apple is keen to show that the devil is truly in the details: the iPhone 4S is wickedly fast, fiendishly well equipped and ruthlessly threatening to its mobile rivals. Can this really be your intelligent personal assistant, your multimedia hub and your window onto the cloud, all in one 9.3mm thick package? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Xbox 360 Media Remote and Bluetooth Wireless Headset Announced

It's time for some more Xbox bits and pieces! Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson, aka Larry Hyrb has a personal message for you in the video below, showing off the headset side of this equation, letting you know that the "Xbox 360 Wireless Headset with Bluetooth" will be available November 2011, just in time for the holidays, and it'll be US ERP (estimated retail price) at $59.99. This device, says Hyrb, will go on to replace the current Xbox 360 Wireless Headset, but whether or not that means the original headset will cease to work / degrade / explode into flames in November is still yet to be seen.

Nokia E6 Review

Nokia E6 Review

BlackBerry may be the name associated with QWERTY messaging phones, but there's a vocal cadre of Nokia users all too keen to talk about the merits of the Finnish company's keyboard-blessed candybars. The E72 met with mixed reactions, failing to quite capture affection the way its E71 predecessor did; now we have the E6 (aka Nokia E6-00), pairing keyboard and touchscreen and offering a taste of the latest Symbian flavor, Anna. Is the E6 enough to distract us from the rapid approach of Nokia's first Windows Phones? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

webOS 3.0 Review

webOS 3.0 Review

July 1 2011 marks the one-year anniversary of HP buying Palm, and it's celebrating with the launch of webOS 3.0. Making its debut on the HP TouchPad, the company's big push for the consumer tablet market, but then headed to HP smartphones too, webOS 3.0 promises to take the simplicity, elegance and flexibility we've been praising in previous iterations of the platform, and bring it bang up to speed when compared to Android Honeycomb and the imminent iOS 5. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC ChaCha Review

HTC ChaCha Review

You wait all this time for one HTC Facebook phone, and two turn up. Hot on the heels of our HTC Salsa review last week comes this, the HTC ChaCha, also announced back at MWC 2011 in February and bearing the same dedicated Facebook key as its sibling. A quick glance at the QWERTY-encrusted fascia shows the ChaCha is a very different beast to the all-touch Salsa, however; does that make it the social network phone to have? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
