DROID RAZR Review

This month will mark the release of both Motorola and Verizon's new flagship device, the DROID RAZR, and what we've got here is a full review of this device, complete with the whole explosive handful of features and accessories. What we're dealing with here is a 1.2GHz OMAP4 Texas Instruments dual-core processor wielding 4G LTE monster that not only employs the thinnest chassis on a 4G device today, but also reinforces itself with near-unbreakable hardware like a Kevlar back, metal construction on the insides, and a Gorilla Glass panel on the front! Will the 4.3-inch qHD 540 x 960 Super AMOLED Advanced display be the final KO in what at first glance appears to be a true knockout device? Let's have a look!

Motorola MOTOACTV complete users guide

So you've got this webpage over at Motorola that's telling you all about the new Dick Tracy watch, aka the MOTOACTV, a sports-centric Android device made to wear on a strap around your arm or wrist. It looks fantastic, but you want a guide from an Android perspective, one that'll let you know exactly what this device is and how simple (or incredibly difficult) it'll be to use. We just happen to have a guide like that here! And after the guide we'll have a full review of the device as well!

Amazon Kindle Fire Q and A with PR Rep

While taking a close look at the Kindle Fire this week in New York City at the big Amazon event, we got several different perspectives on the brand new cloud-heavy elementally-named tablet. What you're going to find is that, like all presentations of products at events such as these, there is a bit more detail in wings that, while the group presenting the device doesn't mean to hide, simply isn't as relevant to the general public, and is therefor not revealed unless someone specifically asks. That's where Vince (behind the camera in this case) comes in.

T-Mobile Promises complete store revamp

As all good stores should every once in a while at least, T-Mobile has promised a complete overhaul of their retail locations here in the USA. What you're about to see is a tour through their new look, an intelligently re-arranged setting that'll have you visiting simply to get a glimpse at it. Bright pink lights in the background, lovely stark white tables in the foreground. Look like a place you'd like to shop?

Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011 Google Episode announced

It's time for some Ice Cream Sandwich. Or at least that's what appears very likely for this October version of Samsung's continuing "Unpacked" series of keynote speeches, each one revealing something monstrously neato each time they appear. This newest episode will take place aside CTIA's Autumn show in San Diego, California, and is specifically titled "Google Episode", this meaning quite possibly that it'll be a rather tasty event, treats galore inside -- could it be Prime time?

Samsung GT-I9250 Nexus Prime sees Bluetooth certification

We've got a massive amount of news and rumors surrounding the upcoming Google hero phone made by Samsung, the following bit of content falling in the first category. What we've got here is a Bluetooth certification for device GT-I9250, one thus far tied only to the name Nexus Prime. Samsung has quite the firestorm started here around what we're expecting will be the hero device for Android Ice Cream Sandwich, each news bit adding to what must soon be a legendary device indeed.

AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Review [Video]

Welcome back to one of the quickest and highest selling Android-based smartphone series in the Google-based mobil OS' history, here representing with the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy S II. This device is the third smartphone to be released with the Galaxy S II name attached, and it's certainly not the last, having been preceded by the original international edition Galaxy S II and the largest display-having version yet in the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, followed here in the states by the T-Mobile version (also titled Galaxy S II), it having the same large display as the Epic 4G Touch at 4.5-inches but with a different processor than all released versions at this time. This 4.32-inch Super AMOLED Plus display-having dual-core chip toting handset is under the magnifying glass today here by yours truly at Android Community.

AT&T Impulse 4G by Huawei Review [Video]

When it comes to AT&T, it's difficult not to get lost in the fold, the massive amount of devices this carrier carries, especially when it comes to Android. What Huawei has done here is to not concern themselves with being the biggest, the best, the thinnest, or the lightest, instead coming forth with one of the most plain and easily pocketable devices I've ever seen carry Android. If there was a phone that I'd peg for most likely to be recognized for it's designers, this certainly would win the award for being the opposite of that. Is this Huawei the key to commonality here in the States?

Pantech Breakout Review [Video]

Welcome to the most affordably priced 4G LTE device to be released on Verizon yet, a device made by Pantech to not only give customers a choice of a cheaply priced bit of access to the highest speed network in the USA, but a reinforcement of their still tiny Android-based representation here in the United States. We've got a review of the Pantech Crossover, the first time we got hold of a Pantech Android smartphone. It's here though that we see a real fighting representation of the Pantech brand, complete with 4G LTE to download all your favorite apps and browse the web at the fastest speeds around. Then there's the brand new Pantech interface, completely unique in the Android world.
