Apple MacBook Pro (Core i7) mid-2010 unboxing

Officially launched yesterday, Apple's Core i7 15-inch MacBook Pro has arrived on the SlashGear testbench and is crying out for an unboxing.  Sticking to the same unibody aluminum style of its predecessors, the new MacBook Pro throws out the old Core 2 Duo CPUs and replaces them with a choice of Core i5 and Core i7 chips paired with NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics.

HTC HD mini unboxing

It's the last of HTC's trio of devices from MWC 2010 and, dare we say it, it's perhaps the least anticipated.  Still, the HTC HD mini has the potential to make a fair few fans, with the capacitive touch technology of the wildly popular HD2 shrunk down into a far more pocket-friendly package.  Check out our video unboxing, some comparison shots with the HD2, and a few first-impressions after the cut.

Hercules eCAFÉ EC-1000W Review

Hercules eCAFÉ EC-1000W Review

In the grand scheme of netbooks, Hercules probably isn't a name you associate with budget ultraportables; the company is taking their first step into the market with the eCAFÉ EC-1000W. A 10-inch Atom N270 machine, there's little on the spec list that makes the EC-1000W stand out among the rank and rile, so is this yet another me-too model or a netbook worth considering? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Vertu Constellation Ayxta $7k+ cellphone gets unboxed

JooJoo arrives, is unboxed, is really real!

Conspiracy theorists start your engines: either the JooJoo really is shipping, or Fusion Garage have crafted a special unit just for Engadget to unbox and are sitting, sniggering behind their hands at our ongoing gullibility.  Mere days before the iPad is set to hit shelves, the contentious JooJoo has finally arrived and - going by the demo video which you can see after the cut - it even works, too.

We had a brief play with MSI's new Wind U160 netbook back at CES 2010, and came away uncertain about what felt like more than a little flex in the keyboard.  Fingers-crossed that hasn't panned out to the latest models, and the people to ask are over at NewGadgets.de; they've picked up a U160 and have promptly shot a video hands-on.
