Whoops, picture of Sidekick ID accidentally shows up at CTIA

Have you ever made one of those really big mistakes (like mowing over your wife's garden) and then upon realizing what you've done, you try to “fix” the problem (like trying to plant some fake flowers) before anyone notices? If you have, then you know you never actually get away with it, and in the internet age, not only do you get caught, but everyone knows about it soon afterwards.

Our friends over at Gizmodo got to spend some time with the Sony Ericsson w880i while they were at CTIA this year. Even though it isn't going to blow you away with its specs, they still seemed to like it.

Get a cell phone signal over your cable internet line

If you live in an area similar to mine, if you go too far out of town you'll start running into areas in the country where your cell phone wouldn't even dream of getting a signal. Now just imagine living in one of these areas, (my dad does) you can forget about even leaving your cell phone on, because it's never going to ring.

You're probably wondering why there hasn't been any good coverage of new Motorola phones over at CTIA Wireless. That is because there hasn't been anything exciting to talk about.

Sprint Upstage retraction: scrolling through long playlist is now a breeze!

Sometimes a rough hands-on review is simply that, very rough. As a result, you’re going to miss a thing or two. In the case of the Upstage, one of the biggest complaints I had had to flick through my long playlist. Well my friends, I’ve flick no more; I’ve seen the light.

So for the record, this is no longer an issue for me. I’ve recorded a short video for your viewing pleasure (Youtube still processing the video - it should be live shortly).

I’m bumping the Upstage up to 3.5 out 5 stars as a result of this finding.

Up-close with the Helio Ocean: Updated with Video

Up-close with the Helio Ocean: Updated with Video

Vincent's latest stop was with the guys from Helio, and they were showing off their new new Ocean. They were kind enough to hand it over for him to play with and of course, take a bunch of pictures. Hit the jump for his thoughts, a video walk-through and more pics.

Once again our own Vincent has managed to get his hands on a new hot product. Anyway, he's managed to snare one of the new LG VX9400 phones and even found time to shoot an unboxing video and a whole bunch of pics.

New video clip of the HTC shift

New video clip of the HTC shift

With all of the great products at CTIA this year, it seems like we just keep going back to the HTC Shift. We can't help it, it's just awesome. Vincent knows how much we loved his pictures that he went back for a short video clip.

Unfortunately for Vincent, the Shift was kept behind glass, so he didn't get to play with it while he was there. He did get to take some nice pictures and capture this short clip for us.

The Shift is HTC's first UMPC, and so far, it looks great. It has a 7-inch display that looks absolutely stunning, a 30GB hard drive, and a 1.2 Ghz VIA CPU. Expect to get your own hands-on review when these come out in Q3 this year.
