Android YouTube, AmazonMP3 and Settings video walkthrough

image The guys over at Android Community have just posted three videos showing us more details on the inbuilt YouTube applications, AmazonMP3 and the settings section of the HTC G1 Android Phone. YouTube is very clean and easy to navigate. The dark interface gives a really nice touch when reading through descriptions of videos and looking through thumbnails to find what you are looking for. You can see all three video after the break.

Blackberry Bold unboxed

Recently RIM released their new baby, the Blackberry 9000 Bold and this seems to be a popular choice among the Blackberry fans. I must admit that I’ve never really used a Blackberry device in anger, I’ve set them up for other people and played with BES a little but never really got my hands dirty with the handset itself.

However, the Bold looked like an interesting device, full QWERTY keyboard and a Half VGA display coupled with HSDPA and 1GB of ROM, I thought it was about time that we looked that the BB more closely.


The Blackberry Bold


I know many people fall in to one of two camps, those that love BB and those that hate it. Blackberry lovers seem to claim that their devices are easier to use and more robust than their Windows Mobile counterparts. We’re going to have a look over the next week or so.

As always, you can see the device up close in our unboxing video below:

Looking for an iPhone screen protector

image If your looking to get a bit of protection for your iPhone you should check out Mobility Today’s review of the Bodyguardz Screen Protector. Dave last night decided to take the plunge and apply a BodyGuardz screen protector for his iPhone 3G. As you can see by the photos after the break these have no orange peel effect and they are as clear as glass. I am currently using the Invisible Shield on my iPhone 3G and have to admit when I use other people iPhone’s I am rather jealous of the smoothness of their screen compared with mine so this looks like a good compromise.
