LG Ally for Verizon

Busy couple of Android-related days here. I’ve just made live my full length review of the LG Ally for Verizon. It’s a very slick Android... 2.1 smartphone with a great slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a WVGA resolution display, and some of the best calling abilities I’ve come across in a very long time.

You know. For those people tha...

HTC EVO 4G

Over at All Things Digital, Walter Mossberg has recently spent 2 weeks with the HTC EVO 4G. Mossberg used the HTC EVO 4G in both Baltimore and DC. Most of his... review focusses on the 4G capabilities of the device, as he rightly claims, this is what Sprint are marketing the device around. He does mention the HDMI and the 4.3-inch screen, but doesn’t reall...

I received a new LG Ally the other day and put together a nice hands-n video of it in action. I like it far more than I expected to. Reminds me very much of the Motorola DROID. In ant case, here’s... the video. We’ll have a full review of it soon enough.

Twitter for Android

Twitter just released its Twitter for Android application, and I’ve tested it out a bit and shot some photos and video of it in action.  Right... now it appears to require an Android 2.1 device to work, which is a shame, but for those with more recent Android handsets, this is a slick looking app that they are going to want to check out.

T...

Here’s a video showing the new BlueAnt Android application that works with its Q1 Bluetooth headset. The app will detect inbound text messages and automatically read them to you over the headset.... This is great for people that spend a lot of time in the car.

The app works on Android 2.x devices and can be found in the Android Market by searching on “BlueAnt”. No real setup or a...

HTC DROID Incredible for Verizon

I got an email reminder from Verizon Wireless last night noting that the HTC DROID Incredible is available for pre-order now, which means... you can get the device on April 29th when it becomes generally available.

The phone is selling for $199.99, a price that includes an instant $100 rebate (why do they do instant rebates?). If you o...

Vonage Mobile

I wrote up a longer piece on this for MobileBurn.com today, but here’s the short and dirty version for you busy Android fans.

If you use an... Android smartphone on T-Mobile USA or AT&T, you can now get the Vonage Mobile app from the Android Market.  It will give you access to cheaper international rates on a pay-per-use plan or unlimi...

HTC Desire

I’ve just posted Russell Jefferies’ HTC Desire review on our sister site, MobileBurn.com. The Desire is HTC’s version of the Android 2.1-powered... Google Nexus One, but it features some slightly upgraded hardware (like an optical joystick) and all of the goodness that is HTC’s Sense user interface extensions.

Russell loves the device, and...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

I’ve posted the two videos I shot of the Xperia X10 that Sony Ericsson sent me a couple of weeks ago. It was my intention to do a full review... of the device until Sony Ericsson informed me that I was working with a phone with pre-production firmware.

Ugh.

When a device is great, that’s of no concern.  Great is great.  When a...

HTC Desire

I recently finished editing up Russell’s video review of the HTC Desire, part of his upcoming written review for MobileBurn.com.

The HTC Desire... is basically HTC’s own version of the Google Nexus One. It features the same AMOLED touchscreen display and 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, but gets an optical joystick in place of the N1...
