Video Quickies: Motorola Atrix

by Ben Smith 24th February 2011

Impressed by some of the business features the Motorola Atrix is sporting (such as finger-print authentication and a desktop environment with connections to remote applications) I shot 4 short videos of the device being demonstrated whilst at Mobile World Congress. Motorola’s not a name I’d come to expect much in the way of innovation from […]

Though I failed to acknowledge it, the search for my perfect handset ended about six months ago when I started using the Nexus One. I’ve spoken before about  my new found love for Android (well, it was at the time) when I trialled the HTC Hero. In the end I found it lagged too much […]

by Ben Smith 1st September 2010

We blogged the exclusive news direct (and official) from O2 that they were releasing Android 2.1 for the Dell Streak today and jolly pleased we were too. We’re giving one away (thanks to O2) too. So, it’s early evening time in the UK and we’re impatient so we got back on the phone to them […]

Continuing the never-ending search for my ‘next phone’, I’ve been trialling Nokia’s E72 for the past few months. Regular readers will know that my phone of choice was once the E71 (before it sadly broke last year, and this journey began), but I was all aware of its faults. Not long ago, Nokia reached out […]

As part of my ongoing search to find a new phone, those lovely folk at 3MobileBuzz recently sent me an HTC Hero to try out… It’s not the newest handset on the market granted, but I’ve heard good things about Android and after too many contract-based nightmares to count in the past – I’m a […]
