Samsung Moment hands-on

Samsung Moment hands-on

Samsung only made the Android-based Moment official a few hours ago, but we've already been playing with it today.  Sprint's first Android device certainly makes a good first impression, with an eye-catching, color-popping AMOLED touchscreen that's certainly on a par with its rivals for capacitive touch-sensitivity, though we wish Samsung could've put the Moment on a diet before it launched as it's not the smallest of handsets.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 13 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 13 2009

This week on SlashGear, we had some great articles, taking a look at some exciting new products, and one of us got to experience Beverly Hills pampering during his trip to visit DreamWorks and HP. I had the chance to review Apple’s newest button-less wonder, the iPod Shuffle 3rd Generation. It’s a great sounding mp3 player with some quirks that may take some time to get used to.

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.

Well, a lot has happened this past week and this is just a little recap for those of you that aren’t big fans of back reading through pages of articles. I highly recommend you at least skim through and make sure there isn’t something really interesting that you missed, but here’s a brief overview.
