    Dell Aero Pairs Sleek Looks With A Dated Android Build

    Dell’s official entry into the Android pool doesn’t exactly excite.  However, it is a full-fledged smartphone with sleek looks and an attractive price point. Physically, it’s one of slimmest and lightest Android phones you’re going to find.  Construction is almost entirely plastic, although it feels solid and holds well in the hand.  The front panel consists solely of the 3.5-inch touchscreen display (640 x 360 resolution) and bezel – the requisite control buttons were moved […]

    Dell Aero Now Available, Disappointingly Runs Android 1.5

    Dell’s first Android smartphone for the US is now here.  Called the Dell Aero, the handset brings a stylish form, decent-sounding specs and an attractive price tag. Originally touted as “the world’s lightest Android phone,” it now has to settle for being “one of the lightest.”  Despite that, it’s still quite the compact package, measuring 122 x 57.9 x 11.7 mm and weighing 104 grams.  One odd thing to note: Dell put the Home, Menu […]

    Motorola i1 Brings PTT, Ruggedness To Android

    Unlike other smartphones, the Motorola i1 doesn’t set itself apart by being better or faster than any of its counterparts.  Instead, it differentiates itself by bringing push-to-talk capabilities and a rugged design, as well as being available as a prepaid phone. Physically, it looks like a regular touchscreen device.  A closer inspection, however, will reveal notable touches, such as a hard plastic casing and rubber edges, that makes it more suitable for rugged use.  Despite […]

    Motorola i1 Announced, A Rugged PTT Android Phone

    Push-to-talk phones generally run the gamut from basic to full-featured. I don’t even think I’ve ever seen one with a complete smartphone OS, though. That ends now, with the announcement of the Motorola i1, the world’s first iDEN device to run Google’s Android OS. Like many other handsets on Nextel’s PTT network, the device features a sturdy and durable design, which it pairs up with feature-rich smartphone capabilities and sleek lines. It meets Military Specifications […]

    Motorola Backflip Offers Unique Design, Great Music And Performance Issues

    Sometimes, a unique design may be all you need to sell a new handset.  That could be what they’re banking on with the Motorola Backflip, a smartphone with various physical innovations that you might find enticing (or retarded, whichever the case may be). Physically, the unique flip design definitely makes it a noteworthy device.  While it looks like the Motorola Cliq at first glance, look closer and you’ll see the huge differences.  When closed, the […]

     
  • Android-Powered LG GW620 Review

    Android-Powered LG GW620 Review

    The LG GW620 isn’t the most high-profile Android smartphone on the block, but it is a fairly decent attempt at one.  Running the older Android 1.5, cutting-edge may not be in this handset’s vocabulary, but it’s a definite contender for anyone searching for a less-expensive smartphone. Physically, it features a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard, along with a 3-inch touchscreen.  The result is one chubby device.  Sure, it will fit in your pocket, but it won’t be […]
