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.
Not to be outdone by the competition, Verizon has finally added Windows Phone 7 to their catalog of devices, in the form of the HTC Trophy. Sporting Windows Phone’s almost uniformed specs: a 1GHz processor, 16GB internal storage, and a 5-megapixel camera, the Trophy seems to blend right in. We’re wondering if being connected to Verizon’s reliable 3G network is enough to make the Trophy standout from the other Windows Phones on the market? Be sure to circle back for our full review.
We’re halfway through 2011 and Samsung has showed no signs of slowing down and continues to consistently crank out quality smartphones. Their latest stateside effort the Infuse 4G will be AT&T’s first 21Mbps true HSPA+ (4G) handset, but is it fast enough? The Infuse’s 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display also tries to answer the questions, is bigger really better? Or is there such a thing as too much of a good thing? Over the past few days I’ve buddied up with this phone and really pushed it to its limits. Does the Infuse 4G have what it takes to be someone’s everyday phone? Or is it just another pretty face?

We all remember Sony’s creepy, oddball Super Bowl commercial, heck Sony gaming devices tend to have weird commercials in general. As we draw closer to the Xperia Play’s release, what else could you expect but more commercials à la Addams Family. Take a look at the new advertisements for this vanilla Android gaming goody coming to a TV near you, creepy ads after the break.
One of the most common questions we get around here is, “What phone should I get?” Two popular handsets getting kicked around are the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and the Nexus S (also made by Samsung). We decided to pit these two against each other in a randomly shot side by side video. We’re gonna start doing this more often and things will get better with time. Hit the jump to see these two go toe to toe.
It seems like just yesterday Samsung unleashed their Galaxy S 4G smartphone series on the consumer market. Pretty much each major carrier got their own version of the device but managed to keep a few similarities mainly: 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 5-megapixel camera, and a 4-inch Super AMOLED display. The biggest standout of the gang would have to be the Epic 4G which was exclusive to Sprint, mainly because the 4G connectivity via Sprint’s WiMax really gave it the extra boost. So here we are six months later and the Galaxy S series is still running wild like Hulkimania in the 80′s, but this time they’ve tacked on another 4G label giving T-Mobile customers the Galaxy S 4G. This makes us wonder will lighting strike twice for Sammy’s newest 4G cast member? Or is this handset nothing more than a Vibrant 2.0 with features that should have been there from day one?

Biggie Smalls said it best, “don’t be mad, UPS is hiring!” Well allow us to issue a remix, “we’re mad, FedEx isn’t hiring!” They really need some help! This piece of tech boogie was supposed to be in our hot hands quite some time ago, but due to a few shipping issues we ended up delayed, but worry not! Things have finally been resolved and in the interest of good form, we’ve decided to give the Samsung Galaxy S 4G the full treatment: Unboxing/Hands-on, followed by a stellar, honest, and unbiased review. We’d swear you just don’t get that anymore these days! All chitchat aside, we’ve kept you waiting long enough! Cruise past the break to see what’s inside the box, should you decide to take this smartphone home to momma.
It has now been confirmed by AT&T’s PR that the Motorola Atrix 4G will hit AT&T stores on February 22nd, for the price of $199. Pre-orders for the handset will ship on February 21st. Nothing beats getting a new toy early! In case you’re wondering what the Atrix 4G brings to the table (where have you been?), you can expect: a dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, a 4-inch qHD touchscreen display, 1GB of RAM and Android 2.2.
First things first: The HTC Inspire 4G is an incredible handset. Sporting a 2nd generation Snapdragon processor clocked at 1Ghz Snapdragon, 768mb of RAM, an 8 megapixel shooter with dual LED flash, and a massive host of other features, the specs on this monster are just the tip of the iceberg. We’ve had the pleasure of spending the last few days putting this bleeding edge handset through some rigorous paces, and are pretty excited to be able to share some of our thoughts with ya. Hit the jump for our full HTC Inspire 4G review!
After a lot of speculation and internet leaks, it’s now official, Nokia and Microsoft are now partners! What does this mean? This new relationship will see Nokia taking on Windows Phone and the two companies putting their resources together to build and improve their mobile platform. Honestly, it looks like Microsoft is benefiting most from this setup. This will rapidly increases WP7′s market share. Both Nokia and Microsoft bosses Stephen Elop and Steve Ballmer hit the stage to further discuss their joint venture.
