Samsung Replenish hands-on

April 20th, 2011

We’ve just spent some time with Samsung’s brand new eco-friendly device, the Samsung Replenish. In terms of eco-friendliness, the device is made of up over 80% recyclable materials. It features a 2-megapixel camera, 2.8-inch display, reasonably large 1600 mAh battery and it runs Android 2.2 (Froyo). The QWERTY keyboard is reasonably decent, too. We’re able to …

HTC just announced their latest handset, the HTC Sensation 4G, and we had a chance to get up close and personal with it a little while ago. While we’re sure this isn’t the last HTC handset of the year, it certainly could be one of the best from our limited time with it. It’s sort …

Optimum iPad app hands-on!

April 2nd, 2011

We knew that Cablevision was involved in creating an iPad app that enables the viewing of TV content, but we didn’t know that the app would offer iPad owners a better experience than FIOS’ and Time Warner Cable’s offerings. Cablevision’s Optimum app lets you, from behind your own network at home, view your entire channel lineup …

Part of RIM’s upcoming 2011 BlackBerry lineup we leaked in January contained the company’s latest evolution of a full touchscreen device, the BlackBerry Monaco / Monza. Both names are codenames that signify different carriers the phone will land on, we’re told — Verizon Wireless will get the Monaco while the BlackBerry Monza is the  global …

March 31st, 2011

We’re big fans of ZShock and its work, so when the company decided it was going to do what it does best on a Lunatik iPod nano watch case, we had to get our hands — and wrists — on one. It takes ZShock around 3-4 weeks to create and carefully hand-set the diamonds into pave …
