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 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...

MP3 / SD Card Reader Review

Just a few days ago I mentioned a cheap MP3 / SD card reader here. I went ahead and bought one to review and it arrived just the other day. The unit itself is a plastic / rubber texture with flexible buttons. In the box there's a set …

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...

T-Mobile MDA Vario Review

The T-Mobile MDA Vario is built by HTC under the name "Wizard". This is the model that Orange decided NOT to launch in the UK after announcing their variant - "SPV M3000". T-Mobile are launching this in the UK. In fact, so are o2 as the XDA Mini …

Orange SPV M5000 Review

What’s in the box? Well I picked up my M5000 this morning and sat in the car park of the depot going through the box. This is what you get..• The Phone (of course) • USB cable• Mains cable• Battery• Spare Stylus
