Philips Fidelio AS851 Review

Philips Fidelio AS851 Review

Android speaker docks are comparatively rare beasts. Several manufacturers offer models specifically tailored for their own handsets, but the market for generic docks has failed to ignite in the same way as iPhone and iPod peripherals have flourished. Philips reckons that's all down to USB port differences, and has come up with a clever FlexiDock system for its new Fidelio Android speaker dock range. We've had the top-spec Philips Fidelio AS851 in the SlashGear jazz lounge and boudoir for a while now; is it boom or bust? Check out the full review after the cut.

WIMM One Developer Kit Review

WIMM One Developer Kit Review

The WIMM One has a worthy ambition: shifting information from your smartphone screen to your wrist, and allowing you to get on with life rather than pulling your phone from your pocket every thirty seconds. To do that, WIMM's smart watch harnesses Android, a high-tech display and more sensors than you'd expect from the standard Rolex or Omega. The company also has its eye on smart watch world domination, with enthusiastic plans for third-party developers and hardware manufacturers. The WIMM One Developer Kit is the first step in that journey; check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

AVIIQ Portable Charging Station Review [Video] – a real life saver, to say the least

AVIIQ Portable Charging Station Review [Video] – a real life saver, to say the least

Every once in a while there's a product that comes out on the tech circuit about which a fellow like myself says wow, I am glad this thing exists, and I will certainly use it to the fullest. That time has come again, and it's come at the advent of the AVIIQ Portable Charging Station. You're going to see an iPad 2 and an iPod plugged into this device if you see the box on the shelf, but myself being an Android sort of person, you'll be seeing a Galaxy S II, an HTC Sensation, and a Verizon LTE mobile hotspot plugged into this device instead. A multi-port mobile charging station is what it is, and having literally utilized it whilst traveling from Minnesota to Texas for a three day trip to HP, I can tell you that yes, it's definitely pretty awesome.

Cygnett iPad 2 / iPhone 4 cases UrbanShield, WorkMate Pro, and Lavish Earth Reviews

It's not often that we cover cases for any sort of device, especially Apple products, not because they don't deserve coverage of course, but because there's just so darn many of them out there! Every once in a while there's a group that brings a combination of materials and form, though, that we just cannot resist giving a little extra time and a few words to. Today that attention belongs to Cygnett, an Australian-based company that will be launching their first wave of products in the USA this season, starting with the iPhone 4 and the iPad 2. Take a peek at brushed aluminum, polycarbonate, and leather-styled coverings for all your iDevice covering needs!

ICON HD and The NERD Review

ICON HD and The NERD Review

Jawbone's ICON was our consumer Bluetooth headset pick back in early 2010, but more than 18 months later it's perhaps overdue a refresh. Along, then, comes the replacement, the Jawbone ICON HD and its new Bluetooth dongle accessory, The NERD. It might have a geeky name, but the promise is complete simplicity.

RHA SA-850, SA-500 and MA-350 Review

RHA SA-850, SA-500 and MA-350 Review

For years, canny music-lovers have known that to get the best from their PMP it's sensible to junk the bundled earphones and invest in some after-market alternatives. That can be an expensive route to take, however, especially if you've just splashed out on the latest iPod touch, and so the entry- to mid-range headphone market has flourished. Into that fray steps RHA, with three models - the SA-850 and SA-500 headphones, and MA-350 earphones - that claim to deliver audiophile-pleasing sound without maiming your wallet. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
