SlashGear Week in Review – Week 20 2009

We kicked off the week with a review of Sony’s OLED Walkman X, coming away mighty impressed by its iPod-besting audio quality.  Equally impressive was Flip Video’s Ultra HD pocket camcorder; if only we could say the same for SlingPlayer Mobile for the iPhone.  While on paper this media-shifting app should be a 100-percent winner, AT&T’s decision to bar streaming over their 3G network has left us and many would-be users upset.

Sony Walkman X Review – is an OLED touchscreen the future?

Trying out Sony’s new OLED Walkman was a no-brainer, even if the only review unit they could provide was a Japanese model.  I’ve spent a week with the NW-X1050, trying to decide whether OLED is enough to wrench the PMP crown from Apple and the iPod touch; this isn’t a review as such, as some of the functionality – notably YouTube and the Access browser – wouldn’t work, but think of it as a preview for the US model.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 19 2009

We’ve had some much-anticipated and long-awaited gadgets land at SlashGear this week, so we’ve gone overboard with unboxing videos and hands-on galleries.  The Verizon MiFi 2200 only had its official announcement earlier this week, but we’ve been waiting for the Novatel EVDO-hotspot for so long you must forgive us some excitement.  Meanwhile the Vodafone HTC Magic has the honor of being only the second Android phone to the market, while the Tonium Pacemaker manages to offer something unique in a sea of PMPs.

Sony Walkman X PMP Hands-on video demo

Sony Walkman X PMP Hands-on video demo

When I was asked late last week if the Sony Walkman X was something SlashGear would be interested in reviewing, it took all of maybe a fraction of a second to yell out YES! So am I impressed with the first ever PMP to sport an Organic light-emitting diode (OLED)? Let me just say that the display is hands-down the most gorgeous I’ve seen on any single phone or media player. Is that single factor alone enticing enough for me to give up my iPod touch? No, yes, well maybe no. I’ll have to spend a few days with the Sony Walkman X or NW-X1050 before I can give a definite yes or no.

Jump on over for the walkthrough video and image gallery.
