I could write about this, but since pictures are worth a thousand words, here’s perhaps a few million words worth of video demonstrating the new Google Voice for Android update that was released today.
Here are the two videos I shot of the Samsung Fascinate for Verizon Wireless that I’ve had for the past few days. It is my favorite of the Galaxy S smartphones released in the U.S. so far, thanks to its simple hardware design, UI tweaks like a task manager, and the addition of a flash on the 5megapixel camera. Part 2 is after the jump.
Here’s the video portion of the review I’m doing of the Motorola Charm for MobileBurn.com. The Charm is a cool little Android 2.1 smartphone running MOTOBLUR in a compact, full QWERTY bar form factor.
Both parts of the 2 part video are available in the YouTube playlist found below.
I posted my review of the Motorola DROID 2 for Verizon Wireless on MobileBurn yesterday afternoon. Here’s the intro from the full Motorola DROID 2 review:
When Verizon first launched the original DROID by Motorola, it marked the carrier’s first step into the world of Android smartphones – and it was a good one. The DROID, like the DROID 2 we review today, features a large 3.7-inch WVGA resolution touchscreen display and a slide-out 4-row QWERTY keyboard in a design with subdued styling.
Just as the original DROID was a good device, so is the new DROID 2. It still has all of the basic features [...]
Not much to say here, since I say it all in the video. Here’s part 1 of our Samsung Epic 4G smartphone video review. Part 2 will be coming along in the next day or so.
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 three of our Motorola i1 videos are available in the playlist below.
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.
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 12 months older that do much the same thing, for the same price. Nonetheless, the device worked… well. It is very simple to use and you get more than what you might expect for your money. Read on to find out more.
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 networker who wants an affordable handset. Containing most of the HTC Desire’s high end components, the Wildfire packs an impressive feature set, yet costs around a third less than it’s bigger brother.
HTC has also enhanced the Facebook connectivity of the handset to [...]
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.
