Samsung T939 (Behold II) in pictures

December 9, 2009

A little over a year after releasing the HTC Dream/T-Mobile G1, T-Mobile recently introduced its fourth Android device, the Samsung T939 (Behold II), and provided me with a review unit :)

The Behold II follows in the footsteps of the T929 (Memoir) and the T919 (Behold). Like them, it’s a nice touchscreen phone with a good camera. Unlike them, it’s a smartphone running Android, with a capacitive OLED display, WiFi, and standard audio & USB connectors…

Pictures taken with the HTC Hero

November 19, 2009

Talk about déjà vu… Sure, the HTC Hero features a 5 megapixel camera, but compared to the 3 megapixel camera on other HTC devices, it’s just more of the same!

But I’m not complaining – “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” :)

Unboxing the Motorola Droid, part 2

October 29, 2009

Sure, the Motorola CLIQ and HTC Hero are very nice, and the HTC Magic and T-Mobile G1 are pretty good, but this phone takes Android to a whole new level!

You’re looking at HAL 9000 the Motorola Droid, the first Android device with 2.0 (Eclair) and a 848×480 pixel screen – possibly the slimmest (and hottest) QWERTY slider ever designed…

Feast your eyes on my unboxing pictures, and if you’re still hungry for more, check out my unboxing video :)

Pictures taken with the HTC Magic

June 27, 2009

déjà vu \ˌdā-ˌzhä-ˈvü, -ˈvue\ noun: a feeling that one has seen or heard something before

The HTC Magic camera is identical to the T-Mobile G1 camera, and similar to the HTC Touch Pro camera – if you’ve read my review of the G1 camera, you’ve read my review of the Magic camera :)

It’s time for another podcast (16 min) with Matthew Bennett:

So between the gay high holiday month and the June tsunami things have been a wee bit crazy around here lately :)

The bad news is that I’m just over 2 weeks behind with posting this podcast, the good news is that after all this time, it’s still interesting. I’ve edited out the Palm Pre unboxing, since it’s a lot more compelling on video

In this episode we discussed the Sharp/T-Mobile Sidekick LX, the Palm Pre, the Samsung i8910 (Omnia HD), the Nokia N97, the HTC Magic, and the Apple iPhone 3GS!

The HTC Magic is here

June 16, 2009

A few days ago I scored an HTC Magic… Mind you, it’s not just any HTC Magic – it’s the limited-edition, unlocked device that was handed out to developers at Google I/O!

This phone is noticeably more compact and attractive than the T-Mobile G1. Check out the specs:

- Android 1.5 “Cupcake”
- 3.2″ 480×320 TFT capacitive touchscreen
- 3.2 megapixel camera with auto-focus, macro, geo-tagging, and QVGA video recording at 30 fps
- 3G (2100/1700 HSDPA), 2G (quad-band EDGE), WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0, GPS, compass
- Micro-SDHC card slot, standard mini-USB compatible (ExtUSB) connector, no standard 3.5 mm audio connector
- Thin, no hardware keyboard

I’m a couple weeks late to the party, but here are some pictures and a video. Enjoy :)
