720p HD for Nexus One closes iPhone 4 gap [Video]

720p HD for Nexus One closes iPhone 4 gap [Video]

With the iPhone 4 and Motorola XT720 both coming to market with native 720p HD video capture, it's time for the Nexus One to catch up or give up; happily, thanks to xda-developers, a new firmware hack can grant the Google Phone high-def camcorder skills.  Currently available for Nexus One handsets running Android 2.1, and with a test version for those running 2.2 Froyo on their phone, it allows for recording at up to 1280 x 720 resolution.

Motorola XT720 hands-on [Video]

Motorola XT720 hands-on [Video]

It takes a brave company - some might cruelly say foolish - to launch a touchscreen-centric smartphone on the same day that the next-gen iPhone is expected to debut, but Motorola are obviously confident enough in the new Motorola XT720 that they're willing to take on Cupertino. Based on the MOTOROI handset that launched a few months back in Korea, the XT720 could be summed up as a Motorola DROID without the QWERTY keyboard (and just 10.9mm thick as a result), though there's also an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with Xenon flash to sweeten the deal.

HTC EVO 4G Review

HTC EVO 4G Review

Long anticipated, hugely specified and just plain huge: there's a lot to like about the HTC EVO 4G. The first WiMAX phone in the US brings with it the promise of DSL-like mobile data access along with the flexibility of Google's Android OS, complete with HTC's now-legendary hardware quality and flexible Sense UI. On the flip side it's nowhere near cheap and WiMAX coverage is marginal. Is this new superphone faster than a speeding bullet, or is that just how quickly it drains its battery? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Sharp 3D camera module unveiled: headed to Nintendo 3DS?

Sharp are already tipped to be among the companies Nintendo is considering for the 2D/3D display on the upcoming Nintendo 3DS; how interesting would it be if they also supplied the handheld with a 3D-capable camera?  Sharp have just announced a 3D camera module for mobile devices that's not only capable of capturing twin 720p HD video streams but of synchronizing the footage and controlling the optical axis.

Canon IXUS 300 HS digicam: 10MP with 720p HD & HDMI [Update: US launch too]

Canon IXUS 300 HS digicam: 10MP with 720p HD & HDMI [Update: US launch too]

If we're blunt, Canon's new IXUS 300 HS point-and-shoot doesn't quite have the appeal of Sony's new NEX pair, but it promises to be a whole lot more affordable (and approachable for mainstream users) than the interchangeable lens models.  The IXUS 300 HS packs a 10-megapixel CMOS sensor and a 3.8x optical zoom, and can capture 720p HD footage or 240fps super-slow-motion video.

Update: Canon USA have announced the same camera, only as the Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS Digital ELPH.  It'll arrive in the US at the end of May 2010, priced at $349.99.

BenQ have outed their latest digital camera, the point-and-shoot DC T1260, and as well as offering a 12-megapixel CCD, wide-angle 4x optical zoom and the company's HDR image enhancement technology - which combines multiple frames to work around high contrast images having reduced visibility - there's also a touchscreen for easier control.  The T1260 follows hot on the heels of the DC E1260, spotted earlier this week, which has the HDR system but lacks the 3-inch touchscreen.
