HTC EVO View 4G Review

HTC EVO View 4G Review

Welcome to a review of a tablet we essentially had a pretty good look at already, but have come to understand in a slightly better way now that it's got a new handsome color set on its outer bits. Head back to the review of the HTC Flyer EURO then see the review of the HTC Flyer WiFi for a full understanding of what we're about to deal with here, then behold the greatest color scheme of them all: black and red. The difference between those models and this one is the internet connection capabilities. While that, the difference in the colors of metal and plastic, and some app additions and subtractions may be the only changes between here and there, an epiphany of usefulness has come over your humble reviewer - have a look below to see how this is your note-taking champion and the bigger version of the EVO you've always wanted.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz 2 (aka Hallon) gets pre-announce preview

Mobile-Review has been putting a prototype Vivaz 2 - aka the Sony Ericsson Hallon or MT15i - through its paces, and finding it's far more than just a Vivaz with Symbian swapped for Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Nexus S Reviewed by TechCrunch

Focus between the latest two Android-specific announcements from Google, and Samsung, has been torn between the hardware side of things, and the software. While Google announced that the Android 2.3 SDK was available now for developers to download, they also announced in tandem with Samsung that the first Android 2.3-based device would be launching on December 16th, called the Nexus S. It's a smartphone that, unlike the Nexus One before it, wasn't necessarily built from the ground-up for this unveiling, but that's not a bad thing, as the Galaxy S lineage of devices is a great base to improve off.
