Motorola to launch stock Android phones sized “just right”

ASUS Padfone: Twice as appealing or doubly-dumb?

ASUS Padfone: Twice as appealing or doubly-dumb?

Maybe it was too many Transformers toys when I was younger, or because I have a frustrated engineer inside me, but I - like plenty of others - can't take my eyes off the ASUS Padfone. The new tablet/smartphone hybrid, fresh (after a leak or two) to Computex 2011 this morning, taps into a geeky, childish "slot this gadget into that gadget and make it better overall" mindset that also left us jonesing for an ATRIX after CES. Question is, after the lust fades, does the reality the Padfone offers actually bear up?

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.
