Motorola CLIQ gets full SlashGear review

Motorola's first attempt at an Android device - the Motorola CLIQ (aka the DEXT outside of the US) - certainly tries to deliver a lot for a first-gen device, and over at SlashGear we've been putting it through its paces.  The main effort has obviously gone into its MOTOBLUR social networking system, which attempts to pull together all the key strands of your online life together onto the CLIQ's 3.1-inch capacitive touchscreen. That's not to say the hardware isn't comprehensive, with a slide-out QWERTY hardware keyboard, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth, GPS/AGPS and HSPA on T-Mobile USA's network.  They've also slotted in a 5-megapixel autofocus camera. So, have Motorola laid the ghost of RAZR to rest, and does a new OS spell success for the ailing company's future?  The full review is over at SlashGear, so head there to it check out.

HTC Tattoo gets unboxed & played with at SlashGear

The entry-level HTC Tattoo has arrived on our test-bench, and over at SlashGear we've been putting together some first-impressions and the customary unboxing video.  HTC's latest smartphone may have a lower sticker price than its bigger brothers, but it still gets the HTC Sense UI, 3G HSPA, WiFi b/g and GPS. However the touchscreen uses a resistive panel, while the display itself is smaller than the HTC Android devices we've seen to-date: 2.8-inches and running at QVGA 240 x 320 resolution instead of 3.2-inches.  We'll be testing out the responsiveness of the resistive panel, together with seeing how cramped the on-screen keyboard gets when you shave off the screen real-estate. One bonus is that the Tattoo feels pretty swift, running Android 1.6 and the standard Qualcomm CPU so far keeping up with page refreshes, homescreen navigation and all the other things that led some to label the Hero "laggy".  Check out the full first-impressions and a live gallery over at SlashGear.
