Review: BlackBerry Torch 9800

Posted on 21. Aug, 2010 by .

I know what you are all thinking… not another Torch review, we’ve seen enough of these. Well you may be right, but I’d like to think that a review after over two weeks of use could be more valuable than these two day reviews. Not to say those reviews aren’t good, just that there is […]

Motorola Droid X initial thoughts

Posted on 07. Jul, 2010 by .

4

The Droid X has landed on my desk.  I have been using it for maybe 15 minutes.  A few first thoughts:

  • I didn’t expect it to be THIS big (TWSS).  It is almost overwhelming at first.  I am sure I will adjust to it after a few hours of use.
  • The screen looks great
  • The buttons fit the phone, don’t feel out of place.
  • Camera looks sharp

That is it for now, after 20 min of use I am getting use to the size (TWSS).  I will have a full review coming up in the next week.

Speck Products has been kind enough to give us 3 of the Speck Fitted Case for the iPad. There are a few different colors available and each Fitted Case comes with a screen protector. Normally valued at $49.95 you will have a chance to win the color of your choice simply by entering. I have been using this case for a week now and the only bad thing I can say about it is that it I can’t use the iPad dock when the case is on. It does a great job at protecting my iPad and making it comfortable to hold. Entering is easy. Simply leave a comment on this post, and you are entered. THREE of you will end up with a Fitted Case. Not too bad, right?

Do not comment more than once or you will be disqualified. Contest will end 7/11/2010 at 11:59pm PST. We will pick the lucky winners by comment number using random.org. Good luck to everyone!

Case-mate iPhone 4 Vroom case review

Posted on 06. Jul, 2010 by .

0

With the purchase of nearly any device people are naturally going to want to protect their new investment. One of the ways to protect and increase signal quality your new iPhone 4 is to purchase a case. Case-mate has always provided quality cases for the devices we love and abuse for awhile now. With the iPhone 4, they are continuing that same tradition. The case-mate Vroom for iPhone 4 offers great protection and a unique design. The tire tread design on the back side of the case allows for a firm grip on the iPhone 4 and in case you do drop it the covers/corners are protected from those nasty dents and scratches. Along with the case case-mate provides you with screen protectors to help keep scratches to a minimum. You can pickup the iPhone 4 Vroom case from case-mate today for only $14.99. Well worth it in my eyes.

I have been using a BlackBerry Charging Dock for my BlackBerry Bold 9650 for a little over a week now.  I really do not  know how I got by without it.  I always looked at them in various stores, contemplated buying one, but then later would talk myself out of it because it is just […]

Welcome everyone to our follow up to the Kin Two review, albeit in reverse order, here we go… Look/Feel The very first thing you notice about the Kin ONE is its very unique shape. The screen doesn’t quite cover the entire body of the phone leaving the white frame visible, and it gives you a […]

Microsoft KIN Two Review

Posted on 14. Jun, 2010 by .

When Microsoft announced the KIN lineup there was some hype, but not a tremendous amount.  There was some anticipation of what Microsoft might do with the Sidekick line after having purchased Danger back in 2008.  Over two years later we get to see the fruits of their labor.  Did they change the platform to attract […]
