A look at the Nokia n810

nokia-n810-internet-browsing-300x247 Over at Phone Report v2.0 they have taken a look at the Nokia n810’s connectivity features and its potential for GPS. This device looks to be a great home gadget, I’m not sure about the implementation of GPS, seem like every portable device is to have GPS dumped into it.

MWg Zinc II Unboxing

ZincIITracy and Matt have an unboxing of the rather attractive MWg Zinc II. It has obvious let downs on an initial glance at the spec list but its a very good looking and simplistic style that might appeal to those who just can’t get behind the E-Ten or Tytn II.

    Review: HTC Advantage X7510

    Review HTC Advantage X7510 When I received the HTC Advantage 7510 for review I was a bit confused, was it a phone or was it a UMPC type device, I am still somewhat confused as to where it fits in to everyday life but having said that what a great piece of technology.

    It is basically a large screened Pocket PC Professional device just too big to use as a phone but a brilliant Internet tablet and GPS alternative. Read on for the full review.
