Motorola MOTOACTV Accessories Review

This week marks the launch of the Motorola MOTOACTV device, one made to work with you to make your exercise-centered life not just more organized, but fun as well - and what better way to compliment our full MOTOACTV review than with a full accessories review as well! What we've got here are several of the accessories available for you to purchase in addition to the MOTOACTV device itself. You can buy the MOTOACTV by itself and get the Clip and the SF200 headphones in the package - but why not expand your MOTOACTV life with a strap or two?

HTC Vivid Review

HTC Vivid Review

This month AT&T have revealed their first two 4G LTE devices, the Samsung Skyrocket and the HTC Vivid, the latter device being the one we're having a look at here today. This device is the next step in the HTC smartphone design evolution, and as you'll see in the video portion of the review below, it's almost as if they asked someone on the 3D mockup crew to cut off all the edges and make something sharp! We've already got AT&T 4G LTE speed tests from one of the few areas AT&T has its LTE network deployed (in Texas,) now it's time to see if the phone stands up to the pressure of the rest of the HTC family (and the rest of the AT&T family as well.)

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Review

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Review

With the absolute barrage of Samsung Android devices having been released this summer, fall, and on into the winter, you'd think that they'd just skip sending out the Galaxy Player 5.0 altogether - it being a device essentially released internationally several months ago. Instead they're releasing it relatively silently in a way that wont defeat the iPod as many have said it would be aiming to do, but will fill the void where Samsung simply hasn't had a wi-fi only handheld media player before. Will it sell for what it is, or will it fall at the hands of its own much more impressive smartphone lineup?

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?
