Skins Mobile Phone Protectors Review

Occasionally I get some weird stuff to review. Possibly the strangest item we've looked at is the Sumo Bean Bag, however this comes a close second. Dirt and grime, it gets into your phone, so most people get a phone cover. Some, like me, don't use a p...

Vodafone v1605 / VPA Compact III Review

HTC S710 Review

Give this phone to people and you'll get good comments. People will polish the keys and mention the bright screen, but rarely will they notice the added bonus to this normal-looking phone. What is it? Well, I'll show you... A spring-loaded QWERT...

HTC Touch P3450 Review

We were lucky enough to get this device before the launch. However, I've got a confession to make. When the box arrived, I opened it up with all the excitement and haste of a child at Christmas and inadvertently tossed the HTC P3450 / HTC Touch to...

Orange SPV M3100 (3G) Review

The Orange SPV M3100 is the bigger more powerful brother of the Orange SPV M3000 us Brits lusted over so much a while back. It's previous incarnation never appeared on our shores and many people defected to T-Mobile for their version of the M3000 ...

Sumolounge Omni Beanbag Review

The guys at sumolounge.com sent us an email a few weeks back. "Would you like to review our product?", they said. Well sure, of course we could. But what was it? Well, a quick check of their site led me to the girl above. "Ho ho! ...

Virgin Mobile Lobster 700TV Review

The Virgin Lobster 700TV is the first Windows Mobile device from Virgin UK and is probably one of the first Windows Smartphones aimed at the "youth" and "fun" market rather than the "Business" and "Executive" market. The emphasis here is not on work...

Vodafone Palm Treo 750v Review

T-Mobile MDA Compact III Review

The Compact III isn't your average Pocket PC phone. If you buy one people may still "think" it's a normal PDA but wait - it's far more than that. First up there's the control mechanism. When I first heard that it came with a trackball I ...

HTC P4350 Review

Built by HTC and originally named the Herald this is the HTC P4350. It's slimmer than other similar devices, such as the Orange SPV M3100 or T-Mobile Vario II and now the QWERTY sliding keyboard slides out from the opposite side. It'll be appear...

Neuros MPEG 4 Recorder Review

Note - This review uses fairly large video files. You may have to wait a few seconds after pressing "play" for the video to load. I'm probably going to switch these to a different format shortly! :) The idea is simple. Make a box that will record s...

Orange SPV C600 Review

In November 2002 Orange launched the original SPV. At the same time a small page cropped up devoted to it. This single page grew into a site called CoolSmartPhone.com. As we've moved on, so have Orange and the SPV range. Orange brought us the first Wi...
