HTC Incredible S Available for Pre-Order, Ships on 26th

We've just received word that pre-orders have just begun for the HTC Incredible S, a phone that's available exclusively through Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy in the UK, via their webpage at CarphoneWarehouse.com. With this pre-order starting up instantly, we can't help but wonder how long it'll take Best Buy to start up theirs - or perhaps there wont be a pre-order at Best Buy? Either way, you'll be able to start picking up your phone on Saturday - of course, that's only if you DID get a pre-order in. Shipping for everyone else starts on Thursday, March 3, 2011.

Motorola ATRIX 4G review

Motorola ATRIX 4G review

You have to be a pretty special device to win Best Device of CES, and this year Motorola's ATRIX 4G took away the coveted crown. It's not hard to see why, either: the 4-inch Android smartphone not only pairs NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 processor with a beautiful qHD display, but offers some compelling accessories such as a laptop-style docking station that wants to replace your MacBook Air. Plenty of promise, then, but does the ATRIX 4G deliver the speed, data and flexibility AT&T promise? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Android 2.2 for Samsung Captivate? Maybe.

Android 2.2 for Samsung Captivate? Maybe.

When Samsung released the Galaxy S seven months ago, they promised users a quick upgrade path to Android 2.2 (Froyo). But that was seven months ago, and so far, nothing, even though Android 2.3 is already on the market and Android 2.4 is coming soon. But there just may be some hope, though it may be faint. A screen shot from AT&T's support page for the Samsung Captivate shows the device running Android 2.2.

Sprint Kyocera Echo Hands-on

Sprint Kyocera Echo Hands-on

Sprint's Kyocera Echo is certainly eye-catching, you have to give it that. Packing two 3.5-inch touchscreens and a clever - if slightly convoluted - hinge, the Echo can be used in a tiny-laptop configuration, as a flattened slate or, if you don't mind a particularly thick device, as a single-display handset. Android 2.2 Froyo and some serious customization are in evidence too; check out our full hands-on impressions - and video - after the cut.

Notion Ink Battles Insinuations of Unevenly Bright Screens, Broken Cameras, Customer Service Stalls

Notion Ink Battles Insinuations of Unevenly Bright Screens, Broken Cameras, Customer Service Stalls

It appears, if a few folks over at NotionAddicts messageboard are any indication, that Notion Ink is facing some heavy allegations from the first round of pre-order customers. Amongst these allegations are that Notion Ink is purposely stalling out on customers looking for refunds so that their 7 day return period will expire and it'll be more difficult (and more costly) to get their due exchange.
