Unboxing the Apple iPad 2

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

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 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!
