As the beta versions, aka Explorer Edition, of Google Glass start to get into the hands of individuals, we are now treated to the first unboxing videos that have surfaced. There are actually two versions of the unboxing available. The first is the actual unboxing that was filmed with something running at a really low framerate, giving the video a very choppy look. The second video then recreates the unboxing, but uses the new Google Glass device to record things. This gives us a look into what an unboxing videos will look like using Google Glass and you can see what kind of record quality is possible with the device.

I am not sure if you remember the ASUS Padfone, but it has been ‘in the making’ for an awful long time now. Initially announced over a year ago, we got a quick glimpse at the new revamped version of the kit at this year’s CTIA conference in Las Vegas and then again at MWC in Barcelona. Finally about to launch soon, our friends over at NetbookNews go their hands on the phone-tablet-dock combo a little early and decided to film an unboxing video for the whole world to enjoy. Jump past the break to see the whole kit and caboodle for yourself. It’s pretty sweet! Too bad it’s so damn expensive! » Read the rest
You can’t help but be jealous of the fact some folks get coveted items before the masses. Such is the case with the lucky French blog HTC-Hub who managed to get their hands on the mouthwatering HTC One X smartphone and share their unboxing video with us. As you can see, the box is a bit on the unusual and cramped side– but gorgeous nonetheless. In addition, they are incredibly delicate with the thin device and the put its gorgeous 4.7-inch display in clear view for our eyes to see.

Sony has completed the Sony Ericsson buyout, and with that, changes are coming to the new Sony Mobile Communications. For example, new devices like the Xperia Ion and the Xperia S, will no longer carry the Ericsson name. The Xperia S is not supposed to be available until sometime in March, but new unboxing videos, and a leaked promo video, have surfaced for those of you waiting. The first thing you will notice is the change in packaging style, which is now wider and thinner than before.
The Amazon Kindle Fire just might be the hottest gift this holiday season. It comes with a 7-inch (1024 x 600) IPS display, 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor, 512MB RAM, 8GB for storage (about 6GB usable), microUSB, 3.5mm stereo audio jack, and WiFi. You won’t find a camera, but for $199 you can’t beat it. We’re not sure what version of Android they used to develop their user interface, but it’s completely stripped. Amazon also features their own browser called Amazon Silk, which promises faster load times. For a small device, I was surprised at how heavy it is. It comes in at 413 grams, while the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus comes in at 345 grams. My first impression is that it does seem like a nice tablet and feels solid, but I’m disappointed with the lack of RAM and a microSD slot for expanded storage. I will do a more in depth review, but for now, check out my initial hands on.
The consensus for Motorola’s DROID RAZR has been overwhelmingly positive and as our Editor-in-Chief found out last week during TalkAndroid’s Droid RAZR unboxing and review, to hold this 7.1mm device is to truly appreciate its inherent sex appeal. Now, the Chinese are getting a glimpse at their own RAZR (or XT910, pictured above on the right) CDMA2000 and TD-SCDMA variants. The device’s specs, particularly their 13MP cameras are familiar and beg the question, are we looking at the Dinara we saw back in July of this year and again with that leaked 13 megapixel test photo from September?
First up is the Motorola XT928 (pictured left), with CDMA2000 radio, 13 megapixel camera (up from the RAZR’s 8MP) and Dolby Digital Plus certification. China Telecom confirmed this device as a RAZR variant, but externally, it looks as though it could easily become part of the Droid X series here in the States, with some presuming it may even surface in the US as the Droid X3.
Next is the beefier, rounded MT917 (pictured center to the others) with TD-SCDMA radio. This device packs a larger 4.5-inch (1280×720) LCD screen and thusly adds 1mm of thickness and 11g of weight, though keeps the same 13-megapixel cam.
Official launch dates are presently unavailable, but they are rumored to be released sometime before the end of this year. Hit the break for a few more leaked snap shots.
Who’s ready for a sneak peak of Verizon’s latest and greatest flagship device a little in advance? I am, I am! Check out the video below of the pre-production unboxing of the HTC Rezound aka the Vigor in all of its glory before Thursday’s event in New York. Johnboy over at Droid Forums got his sticky little fingers on the device and did us all a proper courtesy by providing a nifty unboxing and quick hands-on. We’ll take it, thanks Johnboy. The device is decked out in Vz’s cool red and black and comes with a pretty cool backing as well. With a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, 8 meg camera, 2 meg front facer, 1 Gig of RAM, Sense UI 3.5 over Android 2.3.4 and a few other goodies, the device is sure to be a hit. To further add to the pot, Snoop Dog’s Doctor finished the device off with its popular Beats Audio technology. So now you can jam out to that Gaga Lady or whatever it is you young whippersnappers like to listen to these days. The only question is… do you nab this up or wait for the Galaxy Nexus?
The HTC Amaze 4G launched on T-Mobile earlier in the week alongside the Samsung Galaxy S II with very similar specs; Qualcomm dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and NFC. The biggest difference is the screen where the Galaxy S II has a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display while the Amaze has a 4.3-inch Super LCD display. As for resolution, the Amaze wins with 960 x 540 as opposed to the Galaxy S II at 800 x 480.
Fans of HTC and Sense will not be disappointed with the Amaze, but might be miffed that it comes with Sense 3.0, not Sense 3.5. Can the Amaze compete with the likes of the Galaxy S II? We will do a more in depth review shortly, but for now take a look at our initial hands on.
