Spotify Inks Universal Music Deal, Really Close Now To U.S. Launch

Spotify Inks Universal Music Deal, Really Close Now To U.S. Launch

There may soon be even more competition in the cloud music streaming arena as Spotify has just signed on Universal Music Group, bringing it one more label closer to a U.S. launch. Spotify has already signed EMI and Sony Music, leaving now just Warner Music to coaxed on board.

LG Revolution LTE Review

LG Revolution LTE Review

With all the Android smartphones to choose from, the field of competition is getting a little crowded. However, the 4G battle field has a much lower population. (There is a separate battle about what 4G actually means. See the SlashGear 4G section for more on that discussion). Now LG is bringing the newly released Revolution to the battlefield. The Revolution was released on Verizon’s LTE network. Since the Revolution is only the third LTE phone, there is even less competition on the LTE playing field. It is no secret that we love the speeds possible on LTE, but does the Revolution have what it takes to compete with the glossy hi-def display of the Droid Charge, or the performance of the HTC ThunderBolt? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

T-Mobile Sensation 4G Officially Announced

The fine folks at T-Mobile have sent out a press release regarding the new king of HTC devices, the HTC Sensation 4G. This device has been released in the UK for some weeks now, flying over the pond to hit the USA directly in the T-Mobile. The HTC Sensation on T-Mobile will of course be rolling out on T-Mobile's 4G network and will be out, as they're saying, "by June 15th," which means very possibly a bit sooner. This date is a bit further down the line than the original June 8th suggestion we last laid eyes on.

DROID X2 Review

DROID X2 Review

For a while, Motorola's original DROID X on Verizon led the pack. Offering a big screen, a big camera and a slender chassis, it helped drive the race toward oversized Android handsets that has led us to the Galaxy S II, Infuse 4G and Sensation. Now comes the Motorola DROID X2, boosting screen resolution and throwing in a second processor core, but wrapped up in the same sober suit. Has the company done enough to keep the DROID X2 topical, or is this sequel a flop? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

SlashGear Science Week In Review

SlashGear Science Week In Review

This week in science: a very different kind of "mystery meat", the climate dangers of contrails, and and artificial leaf that does more than make your office look nicer. And robots: a robot that puts the "personal" in PC, a robot that can build other robots, and a robot that makes paper airplanes (but is not a slacker). Also, fighting fire with electricity, a floating solar power plant and T-Rex's new cousin. Stay tuned!

HTC ThunderBolt Review

HTC ThunderBolt Review

The HTC ThunderBolt is a first but not a first: the only 4G smartphone on Verizon's LTE network, but certainly not the first 4G smartphone we've seen and following a hardware pattern that dates back nine months or so to the HTC EVO 4G on Sprint and takes in AT&T's Inspire 4G on the way. With various different interpretations of what exactly 4G is, however, there's more to this than labels and branding. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
