Sony Ericsson XPERIA ray Review

Sony Ericsson XPERIA ray Review

The XPERIA ray is easily the smallest smartphone I've ever had the opportunity to lay hands on, and while it may seem at first to be tiny in stature, it packs an oddly enticing set of punches. Head back to our XPERIA ray hands-on and unboxing post to get all the specification details on the device, then come back and get the most important bits: 3.3-inch TFT LCD display a 480 x 854 pixel resolution, a single-core 1GHz processor inside, a VGA video chat camera on the front, and a massively impressive 8.1-megapixel camera on the back. This tiny monster is set to carve out its own piece of the American petite smartphone pie, that's for certain.

Motorola ATRIX 2 Review

Motorola ATRIX 2 Review

Back when the world hadn't yet tasted more than a single core in a smartphone here in the USA, there was the ATRIX 4G, and now that the large part of a year has passed and dual-core processors are the norm, the ATRIX 2 pops up with a few improved specs and a whole new body - is it time to upgrade? We've got more than a few questions (and a few answers, too!) about the ATRIX 2 including why it exists and how it'll stand up against the rest of the very well-suited superphone environment again here in the USA. Did Motorola create another ATRIX just for the fun of it, or is this truly the next-level device ATRIX lovers of the past have been waiting for?

iPhone 4S: The Opinions Are In

iPhone 4S: The Opinions Are In

With the iPhone 4S hitting stores and mailboxes this week, it becomes one of the most vital times for reviews of this newest member of the legendary smart device family. Only a select few hand-picked people were given the iPhone 4S with enough time to review the device at length, and you KNOW that they're going to go just about as in-depth as you could possibly want them to go. That said, what we're going to try to do here is to soften the immense blow that would be the hours of reading you'd normally have to do to get through all of them. What's the general consensus amongst the first reviewers of the iPhone 4S? Let's take a look!

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?

Facebook for iPad review [Video]

Facebook for iPad review [Video]

Today the world finally got its first taste of Facebook on the iPad, officially, that is, as the Facebook developers finally granted us an audience with their own vision for the perfect way to view the social network on an iPad. Notice how I didn't say tablet there? This is because Facebook on the iPad specifically is such a big deal that it caused a ruckus at an official Facebook event last year when, after being asked if Facebook was coming to the iPad, Zuckerberg spat "it's not mobile" - that event being based around mobile, it was simply expected. Now nearly a year later, we've got it!

HTC Rhyme Review [Video]

HTC Rhyme Review [Video]

When it comes to unique Android devices, generally it's a manufacturer's job to make the biggest, the most powerful, or the most thin - all that's been thrown out the window with the HTC Rhyme. What we've got here instead is the world's first real effort to create an Android device that's specifically feminine in form. It's plum colored, it's got a light-up Charm that allows you to access the device even if its hidden deep in your purse, and it's the perfect size for a petite hand. Will all this (plus a bit more, of course), add up to be the perfect new generation device for HTC?

Sony Tablet S Review

Sony Tablet S Review

It's been some time since Sony had a tablet on the market. Times have changed since the VAIO UX's day, though, and where once tablets were niche devices, now they're making headway into our living rooms. The Sony Tablet S is the first model of the company's new strategy, packing Android Honeycomb into a hardware design that's a little more interesting than many rivals have managed. Late to the game against the iPad, though, has the Tablet S' tardiness undermined its potential? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
