V-Dimension Helius Solar Backpack Review

V-Dimension Helius Solar Backpack Review

Considering how hungry today's gadgets are for power, it's no surprise most geeks break out into a cold sweat when they're away from a mains socket. V-Dimension aims to change all that, with their Helius solar-powered backpack: they claim its integrated battery is good enough to keep even the most avid iPhone 3G user juiced-up.

HTC Touch Diamond, Touch Pro & S740 Hands-On

HTC Touch Diamond, Touch Pro & S740 Hands-On

We met with HTC at CTIA Wireless this morning for a hands-on with their latest Windows Mobile smartphones. Sprint's Touch Pro and Touch Diamond were on show, while the non-touchscreen S740 made an appearance as well. The Diamond is basically the same device that we reviewed back in June, and we're still not fans of the rear-panel. The texture and the slightly-protruding center strip don't add anything to either the aesthetics or how it feels in your hand, and the dark red color Sprint have chosen is equally uninspiring. Where it succeeds, however, is in the data potential: with Sprint's EvDO Rev.A network browsing on the Diamond really came into its own.

Check out hands-on feedback on the Touch Pro and S740 after the cut

SlashGear Exclusive : Exploring Samsung 5MP’s G800 Camera Features

SlashGear Exclusive : Exploring Samsung 5MP’s G800 Camera Features

Curious at first, having never even owned a compact digicam never mind a cameraphone before, I took one for a ride. I was glad I wasn’t handed a 2-megapixel point-and-shoot model but rather Samsung's G800, which aside from a cellphone has a modest 5-megapixels, 3x optical zoom, focus assist lamp and Xeon flash. In fact, loaded with decent camera functions, the G800 is in some ways the first of its kind. Folks, we've covered the basic features of the Samsung G800; now we’ll take a closer look at the camera features and image quality.

SlashGear Review: O2’s minimalist Cocoon cellphone

SlashGear Review: O2’s minimalist Cocoon cellphone

Cocoon, if you remember, was a film about a bunch of cantankerous elderly people who discovered the alien key to prolonging their life; with that horrible thought in mind, I grudgingly agreed to review O2 UK's Cocoon cellphone, fearing that at any moment a trio of elderly men might leap out and deliver a touching message about not marginalising the old.  Thankfully, O2 have been a little more up-to-date with their latest own-brand handset, and while it's nowhere near perfect have still managed to inject it with a bit more life than some rivals.

SanDisk 8GB MicroSDHC compatibility test

SanDisk 8GB MicroSDHC compatibility test

I ran a quick compatibility test of the SanDisk 8GB MicroSDHC with five relatively new phones. Three of the five phones are capable of taking advantage of the full 8GB storage while the other two maxed out at 4GB.

The Nokia N95-3, HTC Touch from Sprint and the Blackberry 8310 from at&t passed the compatibility test with flying colors.

SlashGear Review: T-Mobile’s Samsung T539 Beat cellphone

SlashGear Review: T-Mobile’s Samsung T539 Beat cellphone

You can tell a lot from a name. Call a car a "Stag" and it has far butcher connotations than if you named it "Primrose"; christen your new laptop "Brick" and don't be surprised that urban warriors pick the rival "Feather" instead. So Samsung are being pretty upfront when they brand their latest cellphone 'Beat' (well, unless you hear rather than see the name, whereupon you might think it was actually a purple vegetable) - this is every bit as much a music player as it is a mobile phone.

In fact looking it it for the first time, you could be excused for not realising it's a phone at all: the prominentl green-rimmed music controls are reminiscent of, well, the PMP market leader, while the clamshell hinge is masked by the gloss black plastic casing.

SlashGear Review: Borders’ Mobile Chapter Sampler

SlashGear Review: Borders’ Mobile Chapter Sampler

When I'm not burying my head in electronics and scouring the pages of my favourite VCR manual I do enjoy reading non-tech fiction, so when I saw that book retail chain Borders have launched a mobile chapter sampler service I thought I'd give it a try. And since nothing we do has any meaning or significance unless we share it with the internet, you get to come along for the ride.
