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…

Pictures taken with the Motorola Devour

April 27, 2010

The Motorola Devour shares most of the features of the Motorola CLIQ except the camera, which is downgraded from a competent 5 megapixel unit with autofocus to a terrible 3 MP unit devoid of AF.

It’s possible to make a reasonable 3 megapixel camera without autofocus – see the Sony Ericsson TM717 (Equinox). So what’s wrong here?

Nokia N86 8MP camera

February 17, 2010

There are two ways to look at the Nokia N86 8MP:

The Sony Ericsson C905a follows in the footsteps of the excellent Sony Ericsson K850i, but adds WiFi (once debranded), a larger screen (2.4″ vs. 2.2″), and a presumably better camera (8 MP vs. 5 MP)…

As such, it competes with two other great 8 megapixel cameraphones, the Samsung Memoir and the Nokia N86. How does it compare to these known performers? Find out after the break!

Quickie: Sony Ericsson TM717 (Equinox)

January 3, 2010

After Mobilize, I asked T-Mobile for a Motorola CLIQ review unit, but this Sony Ericsson TM717 (Equinox) arrived instead – oops :)

So I’m not the target demographic for this device, but I have to admit that the Equinox is quite sexy for a flip phone! It’s surprisingly compact, and features some interesting touches like a secondary OLED display and a programmable notification light…
