If you follow J-Mack (@jmackhh) or myself (majorhh) on Twitter, or if you've listened to Episode #138, you'll know our phone debates can get pretty intense. Since I was reviewing both the HTC Thunderbolt and the iPhone 4, I decided to put the smartphones head-to-head to see which is really the best phone available on Verizon. You can watch Round #1 of the battle right here, but if you're interested to see which phone comes out on top visit infamoustechblog.com to see the rest.

If you're not in the market for a smartphone, but you're thinking about purchasing a new tablet check out my review of the Motorola Xoom. The Xoom is Verizon's newest Android tablet, and features a 10.1" display, dual-core processor, dual cameras, HD video recording, and more.

When the Samsung Galaxy Tablet debuted, it represented Android’s first high-profile tablet to hit the market. 2011 is looking to be the "Year of the Tablet" so I figured the Galaxy Tab would be a great device to review since I’m coming off an 8-month hiatus. Other companies (Dell, ViewSonic) have offered up their ideas of what an Android tablet should be, but Samsung’s device included one of the most impressive spec sheets to date and represented Android’s first real shot to chip away at the iPad’s overwhelming market share lead. Let’s see if this powerful little device has what it takes to make a lasting impression in the tablet market. Read the rest of this entry »

When the Motorola Droid launched in November 2009, the elite smartphone void had been filled for many of Verizon’s customers. However for some, the Droid’s form factor combined with its lack of a next-gen processor (Arm Cortex A8 550mhz) and limited RAM (256 MB) left them wanting more. In January Google released their newest ‘Google Phone’ the Nexus One, which on paper featured everything the Droid lacked; sleeker all-touch based design, 512 MB of RAM, and the latest build of Android, version 2.1. The only problem was the Nexus One was only available to T-Mobile customers, but Google insisted a CDMA version of the device would be coming to Big Red. As months passed, the Nexus One never landed on Verizon, and Motorola’s Droid remained the only top-shelf Android choice for customers. Well finally, after months of frustration Verizon customers finally have the hot, spec-heavy smartphone they’ve been waiting for, HTC’s Droid Incredible. Read on to find out if the Incredible lives up to the hype, and will keep Verizon’s smartphone audience satisfied (at least for the next couple months, lol). Read the rest of this entry »

I just got my hands on Verizon's Motorola Devour today, and this is a quick video of me removing it from the packaging and powering it up. I haven't had a lot of time with the phone, but I did get a chance to setup my default accounts, install a couple of apps, fire up the browser, and snap a couple of low-light pics (posted below) since the wifey and I went out for drinks this evening. Impressions and pictures are available after the jump.

AT&T’s HTC Tilt 2 is the 3rd and most likely, the final Windows Mobile 6.5 device I’ll review. With Windows 7 around the corner, the Tilt 2 was a good phone to round out the trio, as it features a full QWERTY keyboard, which is something neither of the other two (Omnia II, Imagio) devices possess. During my time with the Tilt 2 there were some features that really impressed and others that left me irritated. Read on to find out how the Tilt 2 graded out in the end.

First let me say that I've loved my time with both of these phones. The Pre Plus is a lot of smartphone in a small package, and the Pixi Plus gives all of Verizon's entry to mid-level smartphones a run for their money. Since both phones run on Palm's Web OS, the experience is very similar whether you're using the Pre or the Pixi. Both devices feature accurate, although small, touchscreens, with the Pixi's measuring in at 2.6" as opposed to 3.1" on the Pre. Both phones also feature full QWERTY keyboards, although I prefer typing on the Pixi due to its more pronounced, raised buttons. Typing on the Pre isn't all bad by any means, but the keys just lack the clickiness and feel of the Pixi. Read the rest of this entry »
