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...

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! ...
