bModo 12G Windows 7 tablet gets video demo

With the tablet torrent at CES 2011 we'll admit to having forgotten about bModo's 12G tablet, announced in October last year, but the 11.6-inch Windows 7 slate has now shown up for a full review. AllTouchTablet picked up the $849.99 slate - which runs a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 single-core CPU with 2GB of RAM and Broadcom's CrystalHD video accelerator - and found the Windows experience to be pretty solid, with media playback impressing.

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

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

Sony Ericsson's XPERIA Arc may be the company's most eye-catching smartphone for the first half of 2011, but going by an early preview it might not be the best selling if the mid-range Vivaz 2 has anything to say about it. 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

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.

Kingston 32GB MicroSDHC Class 4 Review

Kingston 32GB MicroSDHC Class 4 Review

If there's one thing we're used to seeing on mobile devices of late, it's "microSD cards up to 32GB supported." Problem is, when it actually comes to fitting maximum-size microSDHC cards inside, your choices have been relatively limited and generally expensive. Kingston is aiming to change that, with a 32GB Class 4 memory card that promises both performance and a sub-$100 street price. Is this the card your smartphone has been waiting for?

We've already looked at the original European and T-Mobile USA versions of the 7-inch Froyo slate; now it's the Verizon Wireless model on the SlashGear test bench. Read on for the full review.

LG E2360V LED Display Review

LG E2360V LED Display Review

The new LG E2360V, the company would like us to believe, ticks not just one but three categories: it's a Full HD panel, for entertainment, it's fashionably slim, at just 12.9mm thick, and it's also got some decent environmental credentials too. Still, at around $300 it's not a cheap display, so how does the reality live up to the PR hype? Check out the SlashGear review after the cut.

T-Mobile Samsung Tab Review

T-Mobile Samsung Tab Review

Samsung's Galaxy Tab is beginning its staggered rollout across the US carriers, and T-Mobile has been the first to make its play. We've already comprehensively reviewed the European version of the Galaxy Tab and Verizon Galaxy Tab, finding it an interesting - if expensive - alternative to the iPad; however, the North American models (and the T-Mobile version in particular) differ from what's on sale in Europe. Read on for our T-Mobile Galaxy Tab review.

Gateway ID49C Review

Gateway ID49C Review

Gateway has built a reputation on affordable machines with solid specifications, but the company's new ID49C aims a little higher than the mainstream. With a lick of aluminum and an eye-catching backlit glass trackpad, there's more to the ID49 than just its Core i5 processor. Has Gateway done enough to lift the ID49 above its 14-inch competition? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
