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.

Acer Aspire 8943G Review

Acer Aspire 8943G Review

Acer's Aspire 8943G notebook is about as far from the company's budget netbooks as you could get in a computer and yet still have a battery. A sizeable desktop replacement, with slick, minimalist design and high quality materials, the Aspire 8943G doesn't stint on specifications, either, with an Intel Core i7 CPU and lashings of RAM. Can an Acer PC really compete, not just on performance but aesthetics too, with Apple's well-esteemed MacBook Pro line? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC 7 Surround Review

HTC 7 Surround Review

HTC's play for the Windows Phone 7 market is arguably stronger in Europe, at least at launch, but that doesn't mean the company has forgotten North America. The HTC 7 Surround joins the Samsung Focus on AT&T, launching with the US carrier as the HTC Surround, and will also cross the border to Canadian carrier Telus.

Acer Predator AG5900 Review

Acer Predator AG5900 Review

We've had our fair share of beastly desktops on the SlashGear test bench, but the Acer Predator AG5900-U3092 probably has the most distinctive design. Etched with bright orange pinstripes, the new Predator is pretty striking for its internal components too: an Intel Core i7 chip, fast ATI graphics and more. Check out the full SlashGear review of this $1,350 gaming PC after the cut.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T Review

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T Review

There was a time when an ultraportable notebook would invariably cost well in excess of $1,000 and offer performance suited to little more than emailing. Now Acer's Aspire TimelineX AS1830T-68U118 drops onto the scene, a sub-$900 11.6-inch ultraportable packing an Intel Core i7 processor and a claimed battery life of up to eight hours. Too good to be true? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Sharper Image Literati gets reviewed: finicky, buggy & generally bad

Sharper Image Literati gets reviewed: finicky, buggy & generally bad

Sharper Image's Literati ereader is already off to a bad start: it costs $159, whereas the third-gen WiFi only Kindle is a mere $139.   Still, we could forgive the Literati if the functionality was up to scratch; unfortunately, according to The Digital Reader, that's far from the case.  They've found their Literati review unit to be buggy, frustrating to use and - most damningly - unable to actually load ebooks.
