HTC Touch HD

So, the HTC Touch HD then. Now, before I start there'll be many sites comparing this device with the iPhone. You'll see many "iPhone Killer" headlines and, Whilst many may scoff at this, there are some decent reasons for it. It's got pretty much the s...

o2 XDA Zest

The Zest is an Asus-built handset and, once out of the rather swish box, it's a jolly nice thing to hold. The shiny surfaces give the handset a polished appearance and the flat pebble syling makes it a very touchable handset. This is a fingerprint ma...

HTC Touch HD vs the iPhone

I'll give you a brief history about this site. It all started back in 2002 and we've been covering Windows Mobile faithfully even since. However, a few years back a phone was launched that literally sent shockwaves across the mobile phone landscape. ...

HTC Diamond2

It should be noted that during this review we used the test build of the OS. The Diamond2 is the successor to the incredibly popular HTC Diamond we looked at last year. I wanted to kick things off with the traditional unboxing video. You can also se...

The o2 Joggler

The o2 Joggler is selling now on o2 and you can get it free with some upgrades. You may have seen TV advertisements for it, which look a bit like this.. The ads tell you how it'll replace your fridge door as a way to remind you of …

HTC TyTN II / Kaiser / HTC P4550 Review

I mentioned in my HTC Touch review that HTC seem to be pushing the envelope with their handsets at the moment. It's fair to say that HTC are adding features and functionality quicker than even Microsoft themselves. Now, with the TyTN II, HTC has throw...

HTC P6300 Panda Review

So. This is the HTC P6300 then. If I'm to look into my bag of more supportive comments I'd probably find the words "well built" and "rugged". I may also find phrases like "traditional style" and "classic sized screen". If, however, I was to look i...

HTC Touch Dual

OK, so here it is - the HTC Touch Dual. We're lucky enough to have this handset way before it's release and long before other websites. It's the evolution of the original HTC Touch we reviewed earlier. It's a little longer and a little thinner tha...

Sandisk 6Gb SDHC MicroSD and mini readers

Today one of these things pop through my door. At the time of writing it's the first ever 6Gb MicrosSD card and it's available exclusively from our mates at mobymemory.com for around £35. 6Gb. Just think! It was only a few years ago that 6Gb hard dr...

iMate Ultimate 8150 and Ultimate 6150

Please note - We managed to get the iMate Ultimate 8150 and iMate Ultimate 6150 handsets recently. Both of these phones are gold in colour and are early production builds. Although we've taken up-close shots of these phones, we've now received the ...

HTC Shift

  Before I start I must make something clear. This is not a phone. Sure, you can probably make calls on it if you really want to, but the SIM card slotting into this baby is mainly for your internet connection. We must also clear up a few …

HTC S730

               Specs and details HTC S730 Qualcomm® MSM 7200, 400MHz CPU Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Standard (non touch-screen) 256Mb ROM, 64Mb RAM Quad-band GSM/ GPRS / EDGE plus 3G ...

HTC Touch Cruise

Known previously as the HTC Polaris this is now known as the HTC Touch Cruise. It's the replacement for the HTC Artemis - y'know, that phone we here as the T-Mobile Compact III. The Tom Cruise... sorry, I keep doing that. The Touch Cruise no...

HTC Advantage X7500

The whole concept of this device is .. interesting. For someone to sit down one day and go "hey, I think we should have a phone that looks like a laptop, but it's not a UMPC, it's a Pocket PC with a really big screen". Indeed, this devi...

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...
