HTC Snap

The Snap is the return of the non-touchscreen QWERTY messaging phone. HTC last dipped it's foot into this marketplace with the HTC Excalibur and it's still a handset that's being used on BT with their Office Anywhere solution. The Snap brings WinMo ...

o2 XDA Guide

GPS and a circular navigation wheel has been a popular combination with the o2 XDA Orbit 2 paving the way with on-board GPS navigation software, wireless capability and 3 megapixel cameras. On the face of it the Guide seems to offer a similar setup ...

Toshiba TG01

So, the Toshiba TG01. This has been eagerly awaited by many. Toshiba have at last released a Windows Mobile phone and, after glancing at the specifications, they've come up with one hugely powerful device. For a start there's that capacious screen - ...

Palm Treo 500

Over the years I've worked on this site there's been a lot of changes. Smartphones were once quite prolific, and when I say "Smartphone" I mean those Windows phones WITHOUT a touch screen. The Palm 500 is such a phone and, for someone who is now prob...

HTC Touch Diamond – Coolsmartphone Special Report

Here's our special report on the HTC Touch Diamond. We managed to get a demo unit for over a week and, in addition to the report below, we filmed a daily video diary of it in action. However, since writing the report below and filming these vids, we'...

Bye Bye Standby

If there's one thing we "do" it's Windows Mobile phone reviews. Every now and then though we love to review other cool stuff. One such product is Bye Bye Standby. It comes in two parts, although the first part will work on its own. Put simply ...

GSmart MS800 and MW700

Hang on, we've been here before haven't we ? Yep, the iMate Ultimate 6150 and 8150 were designed with a similar idea. Keep the handsets looking the same but twiddle with the specs. On the right we have the grey unit, aka the GSmart MS800. This has 3...

HTC S740

The HTC S740 is a rare beast in the Windows Mobile world. Remember when phones were phone-shaped? A numeric keyboard up front, a screen you can't touch to activate stuff? Ahh.. Those were the days. The last time we reviewed a HTC "Smartphone" was ...

myhome247 security system

A while back the guys at MyHome247 sent me a box to review. Inside you'll find a starter kit which uses a combination of wireless technology, batteries and sometimes ethernet cable to connect you house onto the web. Why do that ? Well, fo...

HTC Touch 3G

Hey, remember nearly a year and a half ago? HTC sent us something called the HTC Touch. It was like nothing we'd ever seen before. Up until the arrival of the HTC Touch most Pocket PC handsets were either fairly bulky or brick-shaped. The HTC Touch ar...

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...
