Toshiba AC100 gets played with: hardware good, Android lacking [Video]

Having been spotted in-stock and up for sale in Europe yesterday, the Toshiba AC100 has now made an appearance in Taipei.  Netbooknews got the Japanese version - launching there as the Dynabook AZ - and have mixed impressions; as reviewers found with the HP Compaq Airlife 100, Android simply isn't really ready for netbook-style implementations.

SmartDevices’ $289 SmartQ T7 3G Android tablet gets video unboxing

SmartDevices’ $289 SmartQ T7 3G Android tablet gets video unboxing

We have to admit, we didn't expect SmartDevices' SmartQ T7 tablet to make it to a launch outside of China, so the news that the 7-inch slate has dropped at Carrypad's German HQ is quite surprising.  They've wasted no time in unboxing the Android 2.1 tablet, and considering the $289 price tag ($249 if you don't mind missing out on 3G) they're impressed.

Toshiba Libretto W100 import gets video unboxing & review

Toshiba Libretto W100 import gets video unboxing & review

Toshiba's Libretto W100 is an exceedingly expensive way to get dual LCD touchscreens in a clamshell device, so you'll forgive us if we pay close attention to early unboxing reports to see if its worth the $1,400+ importers are currently asking.  Wow Pow grabbed one of Conics early units and subjected it to a three-part video unboxing and review, which you can watch after the cut.

Vodafone Mobile WiFi R201 Review

As more and more devices clamour for a network connection, mobile hotspots are increasingly shifting out of the briefcase and into the consumer mainstream.  Fresh to the market is the Vodafone Mobile WiFi R201, an OLED-toting way of sharing an HSPA connection with some DLNA goodness in the pipeline.  We've had the Vodafone R201 in our bag for a while now; check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

AT&T Samsung Captivate unboxing & first-impressions

AT&T Samsung Captivate unboxing & first-impressions

AT&T's Captivate is the first of Samsung's Galaxy S series smartphones to reach the US, and our review unit has just dropped onto the test bench.  Packing a 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor and 16GB of onboard storage, AT&T's latest Android device marks a reasonably significant style departure from the original European Galaxy S, though you still get Android 2.1 and TouchWiz 3.0.  Check out the unboxing and our first impressions of the AT&T Samsung Captivate after the cut.

iPhone 4 unboxing

iPhone 4 unboxing

It's not our first iPhone 4 experience, but there's still something special about holding your very own handset.  There's more than one iPhone 4 spread among the SlashGear team right now, and we wanted to share the unboxing experience and some first-impressions ahead of our full review.  Apple still have the knack for slick packaging - which also manages to be minimally wasteful - so join us after the cut for the full hands-on.

HTC Wildfire gets video unboxing

HTC Wildfire gets video unboxing

The Samsung Galaxy S isn't the only Android 2.1 smartphone to arrive here today; we've just taken delivery of the HTC Wildfire, the company's new entry-level smartphone and quite the mini-Desire and promptly shot an unboxing video and shared some hands-on first impressions over at Android Community.  Packing a compact 3.2-inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen, 3G/UMTS, HTC Sense and a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, the Wildfire walks the tightrope between budget and functionality, and it seems to do a whole lot better than the Tattoo it replaces.

Samsung Galaxy S gets video unboxing

Samsung Galaxy S gets video unboxing

Back when we reviewed the Samsung Wave, while we loved its Super AMOLED display and swift 1GHz Hummingbird processor, we also felt the Samsung Galaxy S with Android 2.1 would be a better bet for most consumers than the new bada OS.  Happily that's something we can test out now, since there's a Samsung Galaxy S fresh to the test bench at Android Community today.

HTC Aria for AT&T gets unboxed: non-Market Android apps blocked

AT&T's latest Android smartphone, the HTC Aria, has dropped in over at Android Community, and they've been sharing some first impressions and a hands-on photo gallery.  A compact 3.2-inch HVGA smartphone running Android 2.1 with HTC's Sense UI, the Aria has the same distinctive style of the HTC HD mini and apparently runs fairly decently on its 600MHz processor.

O2 Dell Streak unboxing

O2 Dell Streak unboxing

Dell have just sent over their Streak Android MID, fresh to the O2 network today, and we've been getting to grips with it the 5-inch Snapdragon-based slate.  The company are insistent that this is a tablet, not a smartphone, but of course it really sits somewhere in-between.  Either way, it's fast, slick, and - as you quickly figure in the first few minutes of picking it up - great for web browsing.

HTC EVO 4G first-impressions [unboxing video]

The HTC EVO 4G has landed, and considering it's one of the most eagerly anticipated Android smartphones of the year, it has a lot to live up to.  Packing a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, like its HTC HD2 cousin, together with Android 2.1 with HTC Sense, an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, both 3G EVDO Rev.A and WiMAX, and 720p HD video recording with an HDMI port, even the spec sheet is enough to prompt uncontrollable drooling.  First-impressions count with a smartphone like this, so check out our unboxing and hands-on feedback after the cut.
