HTC Event – Watch it all again here

Apple event? What Apple event? ;) A couple of weeks back we streamed the big HTC event in Barcelona live. It got a number of you watching but, if you missed it, there’s now a YouTube recording of the whole thing. HTC revealed several handsets, all of which …

Motorola Atrix Video Overview

We managed to get hands on again with the Motorola Atrix during Mobile World Congress and I was lucky to have arranged some time with a member of the team to give us a quick walk through the Motorola Atrix and the docks which are available and also how they …

LG Booth Tour @ MWC

We were lucky enough to be given a near 20 minute tour of the LG booth with one of the reps there, no having to fight through crowds of people to get hands on with the devices, they brought them to us and gave us a talk through …

LG Optimus 2X – Need For Speed!

Just a quick video I managed to record when getting some hands on time with the LG Optimus 2X whilst here in Barcelona. Normally once phones have some content installed on them and they are doing things throughout the day the phone can start to slow down even on …

Cheap calling abroad – an experiment

Let’s face it, going abroad is expensive if you use your phone. You can be careful, you can sign up to a network or package which allows a certain amount of data or calling when you’re abroad or… you could do it my way. If you’ve never heard …

HTC Wildfire S – Up close

The new HTC Wildfire S looks, if we’re honest, pretty similar to the existing HTC Wildfire. The new version is a little lighter (105 grams instead of 118) and the optical trackball has completely vanished. The screen resolution has been increased from 240×320 QVGA to a 320×480 pixel …

HTC 7 Pro – Up Close

Windows Phone had a quiet year but that does not mean there is not impressive hardware out there running the OS, one phone caught my eye which we have not managed to cover yet due to not being available until just a few days ago outside of the …

Android apps on a non-Android phone – Hands-on with Alien Dalvik

Remember Alien Dalvik ? This little piece of magic lets Android applications run on non-Android phones. Today we took a stroll to the Myriad stand here in Barcelona to see it for ourselves. Chief Technology Officer, Benoit Schillings (who used to work for Nokia by the way), took …

Huawei S7 Slim – Up close

Huawei are a brand that can confuse at times. They really don’t seem to mind producing quite good handsets and then letting a network / carrier splash their logo across the device and claiming it to be their own phone. This is the new slimmer version of the Ideos …

Huawei HiLink and Mobile WiFi Smartpro – Up close

Huawei tend to be behind a lot of the USB 3G dongles that are sold by the big networks. Look closely enough at yours and you may see their logo. If you have one you may be aware of the fairly slow start-up time. It’s something Huawei are …

Huawei X3 – Up close

Built on Google Android 2.3 this is the Huawei X3. It’s just got announced and will probably appear as a re-branded device on a network near to you mid-2011. It has a 3.2″ HVGA capacitive screen, 3.2 megapixel camera and has an over-the-air update system from Huawei themselves. …

Yes, the Orange Tablet is the Huawei Ideos S7

Yesterday we told you of a new Orange tablet. We spoke to the guys at Orange today and alas there’s no plans for this device to hit the UK, however we did pretty much confirm that it is indeed the Huawei Ideos S7 – a device which has …

Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Stand

Verizon have launched a 4G LTE network over in the States offering super fast speeds, new devices and true internet on the move whilst here in the UK we have a good 2-3 year wait before we get to enjoy LTE. Being a bit of a Verizon fan …

Huawei U8300 at MWC 2011

We took a tour around the Huawei stand today and got to handle some of their new devices. One which hasn’t had much coverage is this little puppy – it’s called the U8300 but it’ll probably get rebranded and sold as network-own devices. The U8300 is a cute …

Windows Phone 7 at Mobile World Congress 2011

In the interests of fairness we decided to take a look around the Windows Phone 7 stand today. It sits in hall one and is roughly opposite the HTC stand. Sadly for both companies they’re dangerously close to the infamous CBOSS stand which you’ll see in the video …

Google at Mobile World Congress – Android is taking over

I wanted to give you guys a feel for how things are here in Hall 8 of Mobile World Congress. I know I’ve mentioned this before but I’m hereby rebranding Hall 8 as the “Google Hall”. Every single partner here has an Android sitting on the desk with …

Skifta – A global remote control

We went to see something called Skifta today. It’s available right now in the Android Market and is “a global remote control for your media”. You can access media on your phone, from the cloud and from media at your home. We spoke to Gary Brotman who told …

Motorola XOOM – Up close

The Motorola XOOM tablet runs the all new version of Android which has been specifically designed for tablets, Android Honeycomb. It measures in at 10.1″ and has a 2 megapixel front and 5 megapixel HD rear facing camera with LED flash. You can play back recorded videos in HD …

Morning all..

Woaha, and I really mean “Woaha!”. We really weren’t expecting that. Apologies for the downtime last night (Wednesday morning). We appear to have had a LOT more traffic than we could have ever expected.. and I mean.. A LOT. This effectively knocked the main server clean over last …

DivX at Mobile World Congress

We ran into the guys at DivX yesterday and they’ve certainly got a lot going on. Basically put, if you see a DivX certified phone (like the Galaxy Tab, Galaxy S or Galaxy Wave) then you’re guaranteed to be able to watch and enjoy high-quality content on your …
