Yesterday I shot some video footage of the Motorola i1, the first Android powered smartphone to work on iDEN push-to-talk networks, such as those run by Sprint Nextel and Boost Mobile in the USA.

The... i1 features a solid design that is resistant to dust, shock, and rain.  It runs only the 1.5 version of Android, though, and does not even feature Motorola’s MOTOBLUR social networking extensions. All...

I just finished uploading my two part video on the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini and Xperia X10 mini pro Android smartphones. In spite of the fact that I really disliked the original Xperia X10, the... mini and mini pro models, which are much, much smaller than the original, are very nice and left me quite pleasantly surprised. Part 1 of the video is below, part 2 can be found after the jump. (mor...

Acer beTouch E110

The beTouch E110 from Acer is by its own admission, “Smart ‘n Simple”. We took this entry level device for a spin and were pleasantly surprised... by its build quality and overall functionality. However, despite jumping through the hoops and then some for what the consumer expects of an entry-level device, the beTouch E110 reminded us of phones...

HTC Wildfire

Russell Jefferies wrote a review of the new HTC Wildfire for our sister site, MobileBurn.com.  The Wildfire is very much like the high-end HTC Desire, except... for a downgraded screen, CPU, and price. Here’s an excerpt from the full HTC Wildfire review:

The HTC Wildfire is one of HTC’s latest Android smartphones that is aimed at the social net...

Yesterday I shot two videos of the new Samsung Galaxy S based Vibrant for T-Mobile USA. I had just picked it up the night before at a T-Mobile event in NYC, and spent some time going through some of... this impressive phone’s many features. Part one is below, part two is available after the jump.

Yesterday I received the new Samsung m910 Intercept for Sprint.  Here are two videos I shot of the device, going through some of its features (second video after the jump). The Intercept features a... 3.2-inch WQVGA display, a 3.2MP autofocus camera, and a decent 800MHz processor.

Motorola DROID X for Verizon

I’ve posted my review of the Motorola DROID X for Verizon on MobileBurn.com, and I didn’t spend only a few hours with it like... so many other guys that wrote reviews.  Ahem.  In any case, I like the device quite a bit, but wouldn’t tend to use one personally since I like smaller phones with keyboards. But I have to te...

Here’s the first part of my video review of Verizon’s Motorola DROID X Android smartphone.  I love the hardware design (no touch sensitive buttons, yay!) and like the look of the display,... too.  But I really love the new Motorola developed widgets, which are obviously MOTOBLUR based.  Check them out, below.

Here’s a quick demonstration I shot of Motorola’s H17txt Bluetooth headset and the MotoSpeak app for Android that you can use with it.  MotoSpeak will read out your text messages through... the headset as they arrive, and if you upgrade to the full version you’ll get access to email and different voices.

You’ll find MotoSpeak freely available in the Android Market

Ever lose your phone? Worse yet, ever have it stolen?  Then you might be interested in a new Android app called Track and Protect from KlompTek of the Netherlands.  It allows you to remotely lock... down a lost phone, change its ring profile, sound an alarm, imitate a call from it, or even snap a photo in an effort to capture the crook that nabbed it.  KlompTek’s site can also be used to...
