T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide Unboxing

Posted by Craig Horlacher in "Android Talk" @ 01:00 PM

"If you’ve been sitting around with nothing to do hoping that someone would post a 10 minute video of the myTouch 4G Slide then by golly you’re in luck! Our favorite unboxing pro, Aaron is back at it again with a lengthy look at the 4G Slide."

This is a good unboxing video. It doesn't go into a lot of the technical details but it does a great job of showing everything else about the phone. I didn't realize how powerful this was until I started researching it for this post - though the video made me want to find out more. As stated in the video it has a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. That has the Adreno 220 GPU which is probably the fastest GPU you can get right now. The rear camera is supposed to be the best one in any phone. It has a rear illuminated sensor like in the iPhone 4 but it's 8MP instead of 5MP in the iPhone. It has enhancements for low-light and it the phone has a mode for taking HDR photos. It can also record video at 1080p. The screen is only 3.7" which I think would be too small for me but that's more a personal preference thing. It comes with an 8GB MicroSDHC card and has MicroUSB and MicroHDMI ports built in. I'm not sure about the RAM or built in storage but the previous model had 768MB of RAM and 4GB of built in storage so it should be respectable. I would love to hear how the battery life is on it. Though it's got a fast CPU/GPU it should have a small die size since it's so new and that saves power so it could use less then the single core Snapdragon's of last year. Do you have a myTouch 4G Slide? I'd love to hear how the battery life is and how you like the phone in general. If you're looking for a new phone on T-Mobile I definitely recommend that you consider this.

T-Mobile G2X: Unboxed And On Sale

Posted by Jason Lee in "LG Android Phones" @ 07:30 PM

"Looking for a good deal on the T-Mobile G2X? Look no further than Amazon Wireless as they are offering up a special deal on the G2X for $149.99 without a rebate. Pretty good deal!"

How about a really awesome device for a really awesome price? Amazon Wireless is currently selling the brand spankin new T-Mobile G2X for $149.99 with no rebate to worry about. Who doesn't want to save $50? Also, if you just can't get enough of the G2X why not head over to PhoneDog for a little unboxing action. This is a device I would love to get a hold of for AT&T. Unlocked and with fully stock Android, mind you. Anyone out there picked one of these up yet or anyone plan on doing so?

Motorola's XOOM Slate: Unboxing and First Impressions

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Other Slates & Tablets" @ 07:00 AM

Last week I picked up a Motorola XOOM WiFi edition. The XOOM was announced with much fanfare at CES 2011, and while it was heralded as the best hope for challenging the juggernaut that is the iPad, a few things have soured since then.

First, that when Motorola first shipped the device through Verizon in the USA, it would cost a hefty $800 if you got it without a Verizon contract - but you couldn't use the WiFi on it until you paid for at least one month of Verizon's data service (which was $50 or so, making the price $850). What? Yeah, exactly! Then it was revealed that the XOOM would start to ship without the ability to play back Flash, which was one of the original advantages over the iPad - you can download Flash now of course, but at launch this key element was missing. The first tablet to offer 4G would also only offer it after the user shipped it back to Motorola for a hardware upgrade - oh, and the microSD card slot still doesn't work to this day (a future firmware upgrade will fix that). More than a few negatives!

In Canada the XOOM is $599, Flash is available in the marketplace, and lacks the cellular radio, so there's no need to ship it back. So, other than the non-functional microSD card slot, the XOOM I bought is in slightly better shape right out of the gate than the XOOM people bought from Verizon in February. Read more...

What's that? You want an unboxing in a lyrical language that you can't understand about a gadget that you really want? BOOM. Here you go. It's an unboxing of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and it's in Italian. My Italian is about as good as my Atlantean (as in, non-existent), but boy, that's one nice looking Android tablet!
