Moto G video review

February 21, 2014

Last year’s Moto X left me cold (too pricey, too mid-range) but I’m a big fan of the Moto G (aka. the baby Nexus). 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.

CTIA recap

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
