We’ve posted the full HTC Tattoo review (finally) over at MobileBurn.com.  In short, it’s a nice little device with a great UI and feature set that is hampered by the small resistive touchscreen display with only QVGA resolution and a pretty weak fixed focus camera.  The ability to swap out covers completely on the phone was a big hit, though, and the price point will certainly make it attractive to many. Hop on over to MobileBurn.com to read the full HTC Tattoo review.  There are two videos included, screen shots, sample photos taken with its camera, and of course plenty…

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, but I’ve been pretty sick.  That sickness is the reason I am not up in New York right now picking up a Samsung Behold II, in fact. But there are other people there, of course, and the word from my friend Eric at PhoneScoop.com is that T-Mobile is going to sell the Behold II for a pretty high price: $229.  We’re told it will be available to the public on November 18th (next Wednesday) and that it will also feature Samsung’s TouchWiz 2.0 user interface, which means it won’t be dead boring…

Yes, yet another HTC DROID ERIS post.  I did a much better quality video this afternoon after I got back from New York and thought I had best post it here for you folks. So, here it is. An unboxing and a basic, fresh-out-of-the-box feature tour. And in case I forget, I’m picking up a Samsung Behold II next Thursday (the 12th), so you can expect some solid coverage of that device at that time.

I’m still on the train, but here, at least, are a few live shots of the DROID ERIS that I shot while at the Verizon event.  As I mentioned in the prior post, I plan on uploading some video action today – once I get a few moments to catch my breath (and some real bandwidth, for that matter). For now, check out the pics.  As always, if you have any questions – ask them in the comments and I will try to get you answers. Photo gallery after the jump. Update: Video added after the jump, too.

A few minutes ago the release of the DROID ERIS for Verizon Wireless became official.  I’m on a train heading to NYC right now to get some hands-on time with the device at a Verizon press event.  I’ll post photos and maybe video later, but for now, this is what we know. The ERIS appears to be very much like the HTC Hero for Sprint, but will be available for a relatively low up-front cost: $99.99 on contract.  The device features the same Sense user interface that we find on the Hero, which is a pleasant surprise.  The base specs…

I just got an email from my contact at General Mobile, and he wanted to give me some information on his company’s next Android smartphone.  While he didn’t reveal a name to me just yet, I did get a look at a decent spec sheet.

OK, Russell just finished up his review of the HTC Tattoo, the low-cost HTC Sense-toting smartphone with a QVGA resolution resistive touchscreen display.  I’ve still got to proof and edit the copy, but I can at least offer you the videos right now.  Part 1 is below, part 2 is available after the jump.

It seems that Acer are putting the launch date of the A1 Liquid device back a few days and instead of a November launch, we can now expect the device to land during December, still in time for the holidays. This Android 1.6 touch-screen phone is allegedly suitable for an upgrade to Android 2.0 over the air, when it becomes available. The A1 will be Acer’s first Android based mobile phone offering and will ship in White, Black and Red. The 3.5 inch screen offers WVGA (800 X 480 pixels) along with multitouch support. If you are unaware of the…
