Another week has come and gone in the geek world and it's time to round up some of the biggest and most important stories of the week.

Motorola Triumph Hands-On and Unboxing

I received a little surprise yesterday from FedEx and it just so happened to be the Motorola Triumph that is headed to Virgin Mobile. The Triumph was first announced back in June, we were live in NYC for some hands-on time. For a little recap this is the Motorola Triumph and it's headed to Virgin Mobile and my favorite part is this triumphant phone won the battle with Blur and will in fact be running stock Android 2.2 FroYo (aka Vanilla) and will look and run as Google intended. I'm excited already!

T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide Review

In my possession I have HTC's latest attempt at a slider. This here is the myTouch 4G Slide running over on T-Mobile with those super fast 4G speeds. It takes everything you liked about the myTouch 4G and adds those few features we liked in the 3G slide and poof -- we have the myTouch 4G Slide. This bad boy has a dual-core 1.2 Ghz CPU and a slide out QWERTY keyboard to keep you all busy. I must admit though, the camera is pretty neat too. Head on past the break for more details!

HTC Status Pre-Launch Blast in AT&T Videos

The folks at AT&T are getting really ramped up for the release of the HTC Status (also known as the HTC ChaCha in some circles,) with a couple of videos that'll make you more than ready for the drop, the first of which is a video only about how the device is able to come with you anywhere around the world as it's got more connectedness than a spaceship.

Samsung Dart Review [T-Mobile]

Samsung Dart Review [T-Mobile]

What I've got here is one of the three newest members to the mid-range line of phones over on T-Mobile. The smallest and sleekest of them all and that is the Samsung Dart. While reading this review you might want to take into consideration this is a mid-range phone at best, it is meant to compete with other offerings like the LG Optimus or even the Motorola Cliq. This phone might just be the perfect phone for your children as a first smartphone.

Acer TimelineX AS5830TG-640 Review

Acer TimelineX AS5830TG-640 Review

With great power comes great responsibility, and also - if you're talking about Intel's 2011 Sandy Bridge processor line-up, at least - generally sizable pricing. Acer is looking to change that with the new Aspire TimelineX AS5830TG-6402, a lengthy name for a 15.6-inch Core i5 notebook that ticks all the spec boxes for a high-speed desktop replacement only with a bargain $799.99 price tag. Too good to be true or the best deal around? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

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.

So you love the idea of your new smartphone being able to have some 3D capabilities -- your android smartphone that is, but you don't know if you'll actually like it and if you do, you don't know what one to buy. So far the choices are pretty limited and as of right now the upcoming devices are the HTC EVO 3D or the LG Optimus 3D and lucky for you guys I have both. I've done a small video and snapped a few pretty close-up photos to hopefully help a few of you eager readers decide on your next phone.

Well wouldn't you know it, we've got a pair of earbuds for you to be checking out.
