i-Mate JAMA 101

When I receive a review handset I usually open the box and scribble down my "first thoughts". On the bit of paper here I've written, "dinky" and "robust" and "rubbery feel". Even now, several days after ope...

Asus P526

We recently had chance to sneak a look at the Asus P526. Although there wasn't enough time to look at the internals and do a full review, we did manage to bag some excellent photos of the device and get a good overview. Although this may look like …

The TAD

  This is the TAD. I was sent a few of these to review and, once they popped out of the envelope, a lot of my colleagues thought they were .. something else. I'll not say exactly what, suffice to say that it rhymes with rock king. The …

HTC P3470

OK, let's get some bits out the way. You'll hear a lot of people mentioning "Entry Level" when they discuss this GPS-enabled device. Sure, it's not got all the bells and whistles of the HTC Touch Cruise. There's no WiFi, no 3G and you'll get a...

E-TEN Glofiish X600

  The design of the X600 is, I must confess, pretty swish. The deep red strip around the edge of the handset and the black finish gives it a classy feel. It's a very nice looking handset with a black brushed aluminium around the screen and ...

HTC P6500

This is a device you're definitely not going to lose in a coat pocket. The HTC P6500 isn't the smallest of devices by any stretch of the imagination. It looks like the Pocket PC's of old and weighs nearly a quarter of a kilogram, yet there's a...

Orange SPV E650 Review

             So, the Orange SPV E650. Just an Orange version of the HTC S710 we reviewed, surely? Well, yes and no. Firstly, the keyboard is a different colour, we have the obligatory Orang...

Slingbox and SlingPlayer Mobile Review

This, my friends, is the Slingbox. The guys at Sling Media let me borrow one for a week and now, three weeks later, I've still got it. If the truth be known I can't bring myself to give it back. I figure that if I keep quiet, they might …

Orange SPV M700 Review

The M700 will undoubtably be the eventual successor to the Orange SPV M600 we reviewed previously. This time there's a Samsung 2442 CPU installed - that's the CPU powering the Orange SPV M3100 - running at a brisk 400Mhz. You also get 3G connecti...

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

This is the Vodafone v1605 - a small but feature-rich handset. Push email, 2 megapixel camera, fantastic connectivity, video calling, Bluetooth 2.0, 400Mhz processor and a host of shortcut buttons. Running Windows Mob...

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

The Vodafone Palm Treo 750v is a strange beast. Palm have always been known for their Palm handsets using Palm operating systems. They're successful but just recently Palm have started making Palm handsets with Windows Mobile inside...

T-Mobile Vario II Review

           Specs Connectivity - GSM, GPRS, 3G, WiFi, HSPDA. Quad-band, SMS, MMS, Video calling Talk time - Up to 5 hours Stand by - up to 10 days Weight - 176g Dimensions - 21.95(w) x 112.5(h) x...

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...
