December 24, 2013

The folks at Samsung were kind enough to lend me a Galaxy Note 3 back in mid-October and I’ve been using it ever since. Here’s my video review.

I’ve been using the Nexus 5 as my primary handset for a little over two weeks. Here’s my video review.

Once you’re done with the video, take a look at some camera samples.

CTIA recap

April 24, 2011

Last month I covered CTIA for Engadget in Orlando. It was a lot of work with little sleep, but it was also great fun!

Check out my pictures above (slide show – including Shamu), and hit the break to see the news I reported…

Unboxing the HTC Thunderbolt

April 23, 2011

About a month ago, I got my dirty little hands on the HTC Thunderbolt, thanks to the lovely folks at Verizon…

It’s basically an HTC EVO 4G with LTE instead of WiMAX plus a few other improvements, and it’s the first LTE smartphone available in the US.

Check out my unboxing video, and be sure to read this great review for all the juicy details!


Unboxing the Nook Color

March 13, 2011

Read my Amazon Kindle DX review and it’s clear that I’m neither an avid book reader, nor a fan of E-ink technology. But when Barnes & Noble recently discounted its Nook Color E-Book reader for $200, I decided to take the plunge.

See, the Nook Color is basically an Android tablet disguised as an E-book reader – complete with a 7″ glass capacitive color LCD touchscreen instead of an E-ink display. It’s already been hacked to run stock Froyo, Gingerbread, and even Honeycomb.

Take a look at my unboxing video, and expect some unboxing pictures & more coverage soon :)


Unboxing the Motorola Xoom

March 13, 2011

Last week I received a Motorola Xoom review unit from the friendly people at Verizon. It’s the first device on the market to run Android 3.0 (aka. Honeycomb), a new version of Google’s mobile OS suited for both phones and tablets. Frankly, it’s been a mixed bag so far – a work in progress – as noted in other reviews

February 20, 2011

Last week I was in Barcelona, covering MWC for Engadget. I worked a lot and slept very little, but it was fun!

My MWC posts for Engadget:
- Huawei IDEOS S7 Slim

Unboxing the Motorola CLIQ 2, part 1

January 16, 2011

I was at CES when the Motorola CLIQ 2 was announced, and the lovely folks at Motorola wasted no time providing me a with review unit.

The CLIQ 2 improves upon the original CLIQ in every way except one: BLUR. It reminds of the Motorola Defy, but with a crappy honeycomb sliding keyboard instead of a military spec waterproof housing…

It shares the same 3.7″ capacitive touchscreen and tri-band 3G radio, but bumps the CPU to 1 GHz and adds support for HSPA+. It borrows the excellent camera from the Droid Pro, and runs Android 2.2.

Expect more coverage soon in the form of some pictures and a camera review. In the meantime, take a look at my unboxing video!


CES recap

January 15, 2011

Last week I covered CES for Engadget in Las Vegas. It was a lot of hard work with little sleep, but it was also a total blast!

In addition to reporting on several of the new devices announced at the event, I was interviewed by T3ch H3lp (video), and I bumped into some hard-to-find, already released phones.

Take a look at my pictures (slide show) of the Meizu M9, Dell Venue, ZTE Blade/Orange San Francisco, and HTC EVO Shift 4G after the break…
