    According to Verizon's site, and we quote, the LG Revolution "is a major wow-machine. Superior speed is found when the 1GHz Snapdragon Processor and LG's 4G LTE modem are combined with Verizon's 4G LTE Network. This power-trio makes it possible to download movies and games in seconds, shoot HD videos and share them instantly, seamlessly multitask and browse the web. Honestly, after one day with this device, you'll see mobile technology in a whole new way." A pretty bold statement, if you don't mind us saying so. Does the phone live up to the hype? Read on for the full review! BOX CONTENTS ...

    Sporting Android 2.2.2, the Verizon LG Revolution, being a new device in a Gingerbread world, seems to be already left behind. Unfortunately, the Verzion / LG software matches the hardware in terms of capabilities and reliability - still no "wow" to be found. Except for the LTE speeds, if you can get them... The LG Revolution is available from Verizon for $250 with a two year contract.

    Sprint and Google have come together to co-develop the next Google Phone: Samsung Nexus S 4G, which is basically the same phone as the GSM Nexus S, but with 4G and some other customizations. This partnership helps demonstrate the latest advancements and capabilities of Gingerbread (Android 2.3) in coordination with cutting-edge technology. Or at least that's what the PR would lead you to believe. It's important to remember that the Nexus series isn't intended to wow, per se. Rather, it's meant to represent the best possible experience of the Android operating system at the time. How well ...

    Weighing in at 6.06 ounces, the Verizon LG Revolution is not only hefty, but awkward as well. While the 1Ghz Snapdragon processor has no problems keeping up, there are some notable issues which the review covers. For example, the 4.3 inch TFT display (800x480) colors are washed out and the contrast is sub-par. Rotating the device causes the color cast to fluctuate as well. Blacks are more of a dirty gray, especially compared to the AMOLED devices on the market. Thus far, the LG Revolution isn't anywhere near the "wow-device" Verizon's PR would like us to believe. If this is the way we'll ...

    Previously, we took you through our unboxing and hardware tour of the Sprint Nexus s 4G. To follow-up, here is our Software video tour for your viewing pleasure: Ultimately, since the Nexus S 4G is running an unbranded version of Gingerbread, there isn't much to really set it apart from other Gingerbread devices. This also means one loses some functionality which would normally be included in a carrier or manufacturer-branded kit. For example, the default Samsung phone software opens up a lot of extra tools and capabilities (such as tap to zoom), but the Gingerbread phone software does ...

    Since its release in 2002 as the Danger Hiptop the Sidekick has been on a rollercoaster ride. With integration of AIM and being the first cell phone capable of placing unassisted TTY via the browser, it even gained a foothold in American Sign Language. But in 2009, a major outage and data loss followed by stop on sales in 2010 was thought to be the final nail. But the name has been resurrected with a new core: Android. Has the original concept been lost in translation, or will we see the Sidekick reborn? In this review, we'll give you the answer. BOX CONTENTS While it's a little obvious ...

    INTRODUCTION    As the cold of winter really starts to set in, and it becomes time to bundle up through the spring, I often find that my normal winter jackets can't hold up to the number of gadgets I want to carry, especially when I travel. So gadgets get stacked with gadgets, with careful placement to minimize any damage that might occur. Scott from SeV has decided to make life a lot more sane with the release of his Ultimate Hoodie Microfleece. How does it work in the real world? Read on for the review!

    INTRODUCTION    There are days that I long for just a phone. Or rather, a much smaller, lighter phone that gave me the same level of service as my existing XV6700. The same goes with headsets. While I love multi-function design, sometimes simplicity is the better way to go - especially if it's easy to use, powerful, and comfortable. Another in a our series of Plantronics reviews, we are looking at the Voyager 520. Similar to the Explorer 350 in size and shape, but how does it rate for the power user who wants the simple life sometimes? Read on for our review! AT A GLANCE ...

    INTRODUCTION It seems that whenever a new PDA phone is about to be released, there are a few who grumble about the lack of a VGA (that's 640x480) screen. Having worked with a VGA capable PDA for a few years, I have to say that I understand the complaint. While the resolution on the majority of PDAs is okay (at QVGA, which is 320x240), VGA is easier on the eyes, provides more viewable screen area, and looks fantastic. Windows Mobile 6 supports a maximum resolution of 800x480, or "wide" VGA. Toshiba is adding its name to the small list of manufacturer who have built a device with a WVGA ...

    INTRODUCTION    More and more devices these days are taking advantage of A2DP, or Bluetooth high quality audio. But without a speaker or set of headphones that use this technology, the feature is rather wasted on the originating device. Altec Lansing's T515 combines what should be the best of all worlds: a Bluetooth headset, A2DP, Line in audio, and portable sound. How does it compare to other portable speakers on the market? Read on for the review! AT A GLANCE    (all images link to higher resolution) The T515 box advertising certainly draws the eye, and would have you ...
