Someone said “7-inch tablets are D.O.A.” Apparently HTC and a few other companies seem to disagree. The HTC Flyer is a unlike most Android tablets flooding the market these days. For starters it is running Gingerbread out of the box opposed to the oh so popular Honeycomb. There is also the inclusion of a high-end stylus ($80) that adds additional functionality to the Flyer. If you’re wondering what’s in the box, be sure to check out our one handed unboxing. We’ll have a full review up soon for this one.
Samsung was kind enough to send over their latest tablet offering better known as the Samsung Galaxy 10.1. Besides the obvious sex appeal, there’s more than what meets the eye with this piece of tech goodness. Under the hood you’ll find: a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and Android 3.1 running the show. We’ll have a full review up soon, but feel free to ask any questions you might have now.
There’s this saying in film, that sequels are almost never better than the original. Well maybe that rule doesn’t apply to Back to the Future II, but in most cases it’s pretty spot on. However in the world of tech a follow up almost guarantees major improvements where the first effort came up short. Just like film not all mobile devices deserve a part two or three, but it happens anyway. So is the Droid X2 another blockbuster hit? Or should it have been a straight to DVD release? To find out move past the break for our full review.
While participating in the festivities after Sony’s E3 press conference, we spent some time with a variety of games. Resistance 3 was one that definitely caught our eye. I’ll be honest and say I’m not that much of a fan of first-person shooters with the PlayStation 3′s controller, it’s something about using R1 to shoot that rubs me wrong. In any event the game looks very promising and we managed to film a little action. Far from being the best Resistance player, I’ll warn you in advance that I die at the end of the video. Running and gunning after the break.
What do you get when you take a Palm Pixi Plus and dress it up like a Palm Pre? You end up with an HP Veer 4G. When HP’s webOS hand was revealed , the Veer was definitely something different. With a 2.6-inch display and a tiny QWERTY slider, would it actually have relevance in a smartphone market flooded with 4-inch screens or larger? As we got more details on its hardware, we started to wonder if it would really be a player? Or was it destined for free phone on a contract glory? We’ve spent some quality time with the little bugger and have reached a verdict. Move past the break for our full review.

When people get to talking about mobile, we end up in a Android vs Apple flamewar. Some people quickly forget that there are three other major mobile operating systems currently in the game. Case in point, the HP Veer 4G is HP’s latest injection of webOS (2.1.1) into the mobile game. Smaller than most of the big screen giants flooding the market, the Veer’s display is a mere 2.6-inches. People say dynamite comes in small packages and we’ll be sure to test this proverb in our upcoming review.
