Plantronics M55 Bluetooth Headset Review

We've got a brand new Bluetooth earpiece on the review bench today by the name of Plantronics M55, ladies and gentlemen, and this little beast is rather well put together. This is one of many reviews we've done of Plantronics Bluetooth devices, this certainly not the least of the pack - the M55, in other words, is a perfect example of how well Plantronics is evolving in the Bluetooth headset game, taking here a stylish minimalistic form and pairing it up with next-level abilities and a rather inexpensive price point.

There's little to be said at this point about how powerful Verizon's 4G LTE network really is - we've found no more comprehensive coverage in the country at this point in history - but how well does this newest Verizon Jetpack MiFi 4620L mobile hotspot harness that power? Verizon has several mobile hotspot devices in their store right this second, this being Novatel Wireless' newest look at pushing this LTE network to your many wonderful devices. You'll be getting fabulous data speeds in a tiny package - and this device has a lovely display, as well - but what's the difference when it comes down to it between this and the rest of the hotspots currently available at Verizon?

XCom Global Huawei 3G E176G USB Modem Review

This Spring we got the opportunity to work with the Huawei model E176G 3G USB dongle connected to XCom Global for mobile data. This little device comes with a cap for the USB plug, the whole device is small enough to very easily slip into your pocket, and the whole package comes with an extensive manual and instructions that make its implementation relatively easy to set up and ultra-simple to use. I personally used this device during the entirety of Mobile World Congress over in Barcelona, Spain, and have to say: it worked pretty darn nicely.

Element Case Vapor Dock for iPhone Review

Element Case Vapor Dock for iPhone Review

There's no lack of iPhone docks in the world, but not all of them are as fabulously high quality as the Element Case Vapor Dock. This dock is made of heavy metal - CNC Machined aluminum, in fact, with precision drilled holes and a weight that'll keep you grounded. The bulk of this device contains no technology at all, relying instead on a standard Apple iPhone/iPod cord to power your device up - that said, is it worth the cash?

This month we've gotten the opportunity take a peek at the House of Marley Bag of Rhythm, a massive carry-along amplifier for your iPhone and/or any other device with a headphone jack.

What you'll get is an aesthetically (and acoustically) lovely unique piece of equipment that'll fit any one of your iPods just perfectly.
