Motorola DEVOUR for Verizon video review

by: Michael OrylFebruary 24, 2010

This video is far more interesting than my last post’s.  Here we have Todd Haselton of our sister site checking out the new Motorola DEVOUR that Verizon sent him yesterday.

The DEVOUR is an Android 1.6 device that is very much like the Motorola CLIQ for T-Mobile in terms of basic specs and functionality.

Video: More on the Dell Mini 5 Android device

by: James TromansFebruary 20, 2010

Image from Engadget

The Dell Mini 5 is oddly named as it is a rather large smart phone. We’ve been hot on the heals on this device since it started gaining traction a few months ago. Now, we have a more in depth, high quality video which reveals some of the interesting physical characteristics of this device. As we already pointed out, the device is on the larger side. Indeed, the video points it out too. But any device with a 5-inch touchscreen is going to be big compared to devices whose screens we expect to be 3.7-inches at the most.

Much has been made of the fact that it might look big against your face while you are talking on the [...]

App Review: TimeSignal

by: Chuck ZichJanuary 21, 2010

Remember when old clocks used to signal every hour on the hour so that you always had a good idea of what time it was?  Thanks to TimeSignal, you can now experience this on your Android device.  TimeSignal is an app developed by Luck of Wise which does exactly what the name implies, signals the time.  This simplistic app takes very little battery life and has shockingly only been downloaded 100-500 times on the Android Market.

Google Nexus One review

by: Michael OrylJanuary 21, 2010

Google Nexus One

I’ve posted my full-length Google Nexus One review on  You should jump over there and give it a read (and watch the videos, if you haven’t watched them here already).

In short, I like the device, but don’t love it. Text input is a big weakness, as is the 3G data. The 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen, 1GHz CPU, and awesome call audio quality are spot on the money, though.

App Review: Fandango Movies

by: Chuck ZichJanuary 20, 2010

Arriving late to the party, the official Fandango Movies app has finally made its way to the Android Market and joins Apple, RIM and Palm, which have been enjoying it for some time.  Fandango Movies app provides a mobile Fandango experience with everything you’d expect including the ability to stream movie trailers, check local movie times, and review movie details and ratings.  However, the greatest feature is the ability to purchase tickets directly from your phone, something that no other movie app currently offers.  Hit the jump for a more in depth look and a gallery showing off its interface.

Our Google Nexus One review videos

Here are the two videos I shot for my upcoming written Google Nexus One review on  I should have posted them here right away, but, quite frankly, I forgot.

Oh well.

In any case, here they are.  First one directly below, the second after the jump.

Android Application Review : Ringo Pro

by: Susan ElleryJanuary 8, 2010

Are you looking to kick it up an notch and move beyond the drab ringtones that ship with your Android handset? If you answered with an enthusiastic “yes”, then you may want to take a look at Ringo Pro from Electric Pocket. Ringo Pro allows you to set custom ringtones and vibrate patterns for your incoming SMS and mobile phone calls. The application has fine granularity letting you customize the ringtone, the vibrate pattern and even the LED blinking color for each and every contact in your address book. Ringo Pro expands your choices beyond the stock Android ring and alert tones by allowing you to use your own music library as well as Ringo Pro’s repository which is [...]

App Reviews: AutoConference and Silencer

by: Chuck ZichJanuary 5, 2010

A couple of applications that provide similar convenience whilst using your phone’s accelerometer are AutoConference by Pythonistas and Silencer by Bruno Albuqurque.  AutoConference allows you to toggle speakerphone by simply holding the phone with the screen facing up or placing it on a flat surface in the same direction.  Silencer does something similar, but equally impressive.  Place the phone screen facing down on a flat surface and it will automatically put your phone in silent mode.  While both of these apps are relatively simple in terms of features, the usefulness and ease of each make them both must have applications for your device.  Hit the jump for a more detailed [...]

App Review: SMS Popup

by: Chuck ZichJanuary 4, 2010

SMS Popup is a must have app for anyone who isn’t already using a replacement messaging app on their Android device.  Unlike Handcent, this app has one goal, alert you to an SMS or MMS with a pop up screen displaying the message, and allow you the ability to reply quickly.  It does not replace the current Android messaging app but works together with it, and it does it very well.  When you receive a text message and you have SMS Popup enabled, your message will “pop-up” over everything on your screen, even if the phone is locked and the screen is off.  Users then have the ability to reply directly from the pop-up, close the message, or delete it.  There is also an [...]

App Review: Album Art Grabber

by: Chuck ZichDecember 24, 2009

Album Art Grabber is a neat little app by MyLittleBigApps that is built to do one thing, retrieve album art for your music files.  Chances are that if you have put music on your Android device, some of it will be missing the album art.  If this is the sort of thing that bothers you (I am one of those people) then this app is definitely worth the £1.19 (US$1.90).  A few of the key features that really stand out include the ability to pull album art from the internet or your SD card on a file by file basis, alternative album art browsing and assigning, the speed in which this app works its magic, and its overall ease of use.  Hit the jump for a more in depth [...]
