Vlingo iPhone App Review

If you always wanted a little more functionality from the standard voice control found on the iPhone 3GS, or you really don’t like typing with the virtual keyboard, then Vlingo’s recently updated application is likely to be of interest. Vlingo is voice control taken to the next level.  Instead of just being able to make a call or search for a phrase, this application adds Google Maps search, Facebook and Twitter status updates plus email and SMS messages too.  Upon starting the app you’re presented with a large button saying ‘press and speak’, with a tip for what you can […]

Sony Ericsson Vivaz: Cue The Film

Ever since rumours and pictures of the Sony Ericsson Vivaz emerged, albeit under the Kurara nametag, everyone was hooked. Thankfully, Sony Ericsson only left us waiting a couple of months before the official announcement came. On January 21st the Sony Ericsson Vivaz was revealed to the world. By this time there was little in the press release that hadn’t already been discussed, realistically all that was left to do was to get some hands on action! The Sony Ericsson Vivaz represents a few firsts for the company, not only is it Sony Ericsson’s first multimedia handset release of 2010, but […]

Sleek and Stylish, the LG Pop Bursts onto the Scene!

The LG Cookie has sold more than 5 million worldwide, proving once and for all that if you want a big seller, strip out the flashy features, give it a toucshcreen and watch it walk out the door.  Loved as the Cookie may be, it’s now-dated design means it’s ripe for replacement, hence the LG GD510 Pop, a sequel in all but name. Here’s a rundown of the Pop’s main features: A 240×400 pixel 3-inch touchscreen. A 3 megapixel camera. Memory can be increased with a MicroSD card up to 16GB in size.

The Sony Ericsson X3

Remember the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2?  We’re sure you do, but just in case you need a refresher, it’s the follow-up to the X1 with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and Windows Mobile.  The reason we ask is that in true Sony Ericsson style, we first saw the phone back in June and are still waiting for its release, a story very similar to the Sony Ericsson Xperia X3. It was July when Rachael first came into our lives, and even then we knew she was something special.  Despite sitting next to her equally striking friend, Kiki, it was the promise […]

Windows Mobile 6.5, Is It a Revolution?

While it may sound harsh this early on, Windows Mobile 6.5 unfortunately isn’t a revolution, however we have a feeling even Microsoft will admit that.  What it is though, is an evolution, just like 6.1 evolved from 6.  For this reason, one must keep expectations in check, as what 6.5 mainly does is make Windows Mobile play better without a stylus, introduce an overhauled Internet Explorer, launch Marketplace and get funky with some designer themes.  If you want more than this, you’ll have to wait for Windows Mobile 7, which could be a while. The first thing Microsoft want you […]

Hands-on Galaxy Experience with the Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700

We had the chance to get our hands on the Samsung Galaxy Spica for a few minutes, while it wasn’t the final device, first impressions look promising.  The Samsung Galaxy Spica is essentially a lighter, compact version of its fellow companion, the Samsung Galaxy. This budget smartphone offers a more affordable slice of Android technology in a lighter, compact case. The Android system is the 1.5 cupcake version. The differences between this and its predecessor are few and far between; some improvements have been made, but realistically you wont see a lot of change between this and the platform in the HTC Magic or […]
