HTC has gone from being an unknown manufacturer for bigger brands to one spewing out leading Android smartphones. The Desire was a landmark phone in the fight against the iPhone, but now tech has moved up a level – can the HTC Sensation stay at the sharp end?
With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S2, the Motorola Atrix and (to a degree) the LG Optimus 2X, dual-core phones have become the darling of the tech enthusiast.
HTC Sensation vs Samsung Galaxy S2 – which is right for you?
And HTC has recognised that in bringing out a phone that ticks all the boxes for the most sought-after [...]
The PlayStation phone is the device equivalent of El Dorado, in that it’s spent a long time as a golden fable to trot out when conversation slows. Now the fusion of gamepad and Android phone has emerged into the modern world in the form of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play.
It’s a time when iPhones have permeated the globe, able to deliver tactile gaming on the go, and Nintendo’s 3DS is making waves by bringing portable 3D fun to the masses.
Even within the Sony stable, the Xperia Play has rivals to overcome. There’s the NGP, successor to the PSP, on the horizon, which [...]
We’ve seen a number of smartphones launched this year from Acer including beTouch models running Android and neoTouch models running Windows Mobile.
There has also been the Liquid E, an Android 2.1 upgrade of an earlier handset which we thought had potential but which failed to live up to its billing.
Acer keeps forging ahead with new launches, and the latest, the Stream, looks on paper to be a stunner.
Alongside the essentials of 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS, we have a nice large 3.7-inch AMOLED screen with an 800 x 480 pixel resolution, 1GHz processor, 720p video recording, HDMI out, a 5-megapixel [...]
Samsung has used a Russian developer conference to show off its plans for its proprietary smartphone platform.
The Korean company will be releasing four new phones in the near future based on Bada, on top of the forthcoming Samsung Wave.
There’s very little information on the new phones apart from the slide depicting them – but we can see they’ll all be cheaper than the Wave.
Two of each
The new Bada phones will come in two forms, two full touchscreen devices and two with horizontally-sliding QWERTY keyboards, like the Genio Slide.
The Samsung Wave has been tipped to cost north [...]
The HTC Legend has been given a UK release date for later this month – despite not having any confirmed operator support.
Clove Technology is offering the HTC Legend for just £320 SIM-free (£376 including VAT), and the phone will be shipped on 23 March.
This is in advance of the mooted April release date, so consumers can get their hands on the first phone to run Android 2.1 in the UK earlier than previously thought.
We’ve yet to hear which operators will be stocking the HTC Legend as yet, but the likelihood is it will come to Vodafone as an exclusive.
The network [...]

Nokia has announced that its popular Comes With Music phone offering, the Nokia X6, now comes without music and 16GB less memory – all in aid of a cut-down price.
The Nokia X6 was initially announced in September and finally landed on the scene in December and is by all accounts a nicely made device.
Sporting Ovi Store connectivity, a capacitive screen (the first for Nokia) and running Symbian S60 5th Edition as an OS, the X6 is a powerful phone with myriad multimedia features.
The X6 16GB is a full 16GB less memory than the original and is now without Nokia’s Comes With Music [...]
