Check out our hands-on video after the cut.

Sony’s PS Vita is here

Sony's PS Vita isn't expected to hit stores properly in the US and UK until February 22, but a PS Vita 3G has arrived early on SlashGear's doorstep and we've never been known for our patience. Vitally important as Sony's big push-back against the rise of smartphone and tablet gaming, the PS Vita represents another strand of the company's "four-screen" strategy and an attempt to fight of iOS and Android and their respective catalogs of thousands of casual games.

Galaxy Nexus Unboxing and Hands-on

Could the Galaxy Nexus be the most anticipated Android phone of the holiday season? It certainly has some strong competition, with the DROID RAZR and HTC Rezound doing their level best to muscle into the market ahead of the first Ice Cream Sandwich phone's arrival. Still, Samsung's smartphone - and the third device to wear the official Nexus branding - has plenty to differentiate it, not just Android 4.0. The HSPA+ model has arrived on the SlashGear test bench; read on for our first impressions.

Now that was quick: announced on Wednesday last week, already the Nokia Lumia 800 is here on the SlashGear test bench.

Samsung Stratosphere Hands-on and Unboxing [Video]

Samsung Stratosphere Hands-on and Unboxing [Video]

The folks at Verizon and Samsung here present the world's first 4G LTE device on the market with a full QWERTY keyboard, the Samsung Stratosphere. This device isn't going to bust your bank or bust your benchmark tests as it's going to be costing $149.99 after $50 mail-in rebate and it's got a modest single-core 1GHz processor under the hood. Instead what we're going to be looking for here is if this device can stand up to the mid-range of LTE-toting devices on the market, a market which currently only really has one contender: the Pantech Breakout. Will Samsung's TouchWiz interface and the ability to type with a physical keyboard matched with a lovely Super AMOLED display be the winning combination?

It's time for HTC to join the 10-inch Android tablet game, and with what might be the highest-quality build on an tablet with Honeycomb inside to date with the HTC Jetstream - but is it too late to jump in? And at $699.99 WITH a 2-year contract on AT&T, is it much, much too expensive to compete with the rest of the tablet crowd? That's what they're saying, ladies and gentlemen, but we've gotta be sure - OR prove them all wrong, of course. This tablet has hit the SlashGear review bench today, and here we take our first look at its final-build insides and out.
