Unboxing the Apple iPad 2

April 24, 2011

Yes, the Apple iPad 2 is in the house! It arrived while I was covering CTIA, and was waiting for me at home when I returned…

Apple really nailed it with the iPad 2 – it raises the bar for tablets in general, and leaves the competition in the dust.

I’ve already mentioned this in the context of the Motorola Xoom, and other reviews have reached the same conclusion.

Enjoy my unboxing video :)


Unboxing the HTC Arrive

April 23, 2011

A few weeks ago, I received an HTC Arrive review unit from the PR people at Sprint.

It’s the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 device, and it’s the only phone to ship with NoDo (the update that adds copy/paste) – my HTC Surround is jealous :)

Take a look at my unboxing video, and follow up by reading this excellent review for more tasty info.


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
