Sonos PLAY:3 hands-on

August 9th, 2011

Sonos released a new sibling in their audio lineup recently, and it’s called the PLAY:3. You can think of it as a smaller PLAY:5 (what used to be called the S5), and it is definitely up to par with the level of quality that Sonos is known for. There isn’t an actual subwoofer, rather a …

Hands on with Verizon’s 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

July 28th, 2011

Verizon Wireless just sent us the 4G LTE-equipped version of Samsung’s flagship Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, and we’re ready to deliver our initial impressions. First things first: this should go without saying at this point, but this puppy is ridiculously fast. Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network is unmatched when it comes speed and …

Motorola DROID 3 hands-on

July 14th, 2011

Verizon Wireless just shot us over its latest flagship DROID handset, the Motorola DROID 3, and it’s pretty intense.

HP TouchPad hands-on!

June 29th, 2011

While our full review of the HP TouchPad is going up any minute, we wanted to give you guys a first impression overview of the first webOS tablet. From a hardware perspective, it’s actually a little shocking how the device looks and feels like an iPhone 3GS that’s gone under a rolling pin a couple …

LG Thrill 3D hands-on (again)

June 23rd, 2011

We spent some more time with AT&T’s first 3D-capable handset — the LG Thrill 4G — yesterday, and we have to say, it might deliver a better 3D experience than Sprint’s HTC EVO 3D. 3D viewing angles for 3D content seemed much better in our limited time with the handset. The phone itself felt good …

Sprint Motorola XPRT hands-on

June 15th, 2011

FedEx just buzzed by and dropped off Sprint’s latest QWERTY Android smartphones, the Motorola XPRT. The XPRT reminds us a lot of the DROID Pro on Verizon Wireless, but it feels just a bit cheaper, which likely explains the lower price tag. It lacks the polished finished of the DROID Pro and it feels much …

June 9th, 2011

Photos not cutting it? Don’t worry, because your pals at BGR just spent some up close and personal time with the new Motorola Photon 4G. Sprint and Motorola teamed up to take the wraps off this sleek new smartphone earlier today, and we have to say, we’re impressed. With a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1GHz dual-core …

Motorola Triumph for Virgin Mobile hands-on

June 9th, 2011

The Motorola Photon 4G from Sprint wasn’t the only Motorola device that got official a little while ago. The company has introduced a low cost Android handset for prepaid carrier Virgin Mobile, and it definitely tries to set the bar for what a prepaid phone is in today’s market. For starters, the Motorola Triumph’s styling …

Sony PlayStation Vita hands-on!

June 7th, 2011

We’re here at E3 2011 in Los Angeles and we just got our hands on Sony’s brand new PlayStation Vita — its next-generation portable gaming console — and we’re impressed with what we’ve seen so far. Games were crystal clear in HD and the device was light, but large enough to feel like we were …
