Here’s why the DROID RAZR is the ideal Android for today’s mobile landscape

Let me tell you here why Motorola presented the ideal phone for a person like me this week in New York City. And also let me tell you why I'm sad it didn't come out several months ago. First, the positives - they all begin with the heavy metal that makes up the majority of this device. Then let's speak about how thin and lovely this device very much appears to be. Then we'll speak about how even though I will be switching to the Galaxy Nexus sooner than later, you certainly don't have to. This is the DROID RAZR, the greatest Motorola smartphone ever created and soon to be at once the thinnest and the toughest to break smart handset on the market.

Motorola DROID RAZR: what we’ll see tomorrow

Motorola DROID RAZR: what we’ll see tomorrow

Earlier today we were given a few more clues as to what we'll be seeing at the big Motorola news conference tomorrow in New York City - a device by the name of DROID RAZR now seems rather likely, a new crowned king of Verizon LTE devices, soon to be in our hands. But what have we gathered as far as specifications go? How big is the display, what's going on with the camera, and what sort of processor is inside? And most importantly, will the full package equal a device that's going to entice those who also have had the choice of picking up a dual-core smartphone from Motorola since early this year with the original Atrix, the USA's first dual-core smartphone?

Apple iPhone 4S A5 chip vs 1.5 GHz dual-core Galaxy S II in browser tests [Video]

Though the 1.5 GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor may be the highest GHz dual-core processor in the land today, from what we're seeing here, the Apple A5 chip in the iPhone 4S certainly seems to be holding its own when tossed into the out-of--box browser competition. What we've got here for you is a slightly unscientific set of tests, one that first shows the difference between the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S, that is single-core compared to dual-core chips from Apple, then the iPhone 4S VS the Samsung Galaxy S II carried by T-Mobile, this version having a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor, all tests conducted simply by tapping a link and seeing how fast they can load a webpage.

HTC Jetstream Review

HTC Jetstream Review

Presenting HTC's vision for the perfect 10-inch Android tablet, the HTC Jetstream, complete with a Qualcomm MSM8660 1.5 Ghz dual-core processor under the hood and a pricy $700 USD bill attached to it carried by AT&T. The question we've got on our minds, and have had on our minds since the pricing was first announced is: how could a 10-inch tablet enter an environment with several 10-inch tablets already having been out for several months with a significantly higher price and expect to do well for sales? As it turns out, this HTC tablet does not hold back - not in construction or content - but will its individual specifications be enough to create one product worthy of the price tag?

Motorola ET1 Android tablet is 7-inches of business

This week we're bearing witness to Motorola's newest tablet effort, the ET1, a 7-inch Android device made to fill the enterprise gap left by BlackBerry and the Windows crew, pushing simplicity and ruggedness amongst its qualities.

Rare to tablets, this device has a replaceable battery (at 4620 mAh) and will be weighing in at 1.4 pounds. Will this device find its place where Motorola aims it to sit, in the business world, or will it crash under pressure from the consumer market?

HTC Jetstream unboxing and hands-on [Video]

It's time for HTC to join the 10-inch Android tablet game, and with what might be the highest-quality build on an tablet with Honeycomb inside to date with the HTC Jetstream - but is it too late to jump in? And at $699.99 WITH a 2-year contract on AT&T, is it much, much too expensive to compete with the rest of the tablet crowd? That's what they're saying, ladies and gentlemen, but we've gotta be sure - OR prove them all wrong, of course. This tablet has hit the SlashGear review bench today, and here we take our first look at its final-build insides and out.

Pantech Vega LTE announced, company’s first superphone possible for USA

When it comes to Pantech here in the USA, we've not exactly seen the best of the crop for smartphones - all that may be about to change with the Pantech Vega LTE. This device has a 4.5-inch 1280 x 800 pixel resolution display, runs Android 2.3.x Gingerbread, and totes a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor of yet unknown origin. That's set to go up against the big guns, if I do say so myself. The device itself doesn't look that unlike a Galaxy S II, will be available in black or in white, and rumor has it, might be coming to the USA before too long.
