Unboxing the Nook Color

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 CLIQ 2, part 1

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!
