Window Mobile and Symbian YouTube app

YT A YouTube application is pre-loaded onto most Smartphones these days. We recently posted the details of a new YouTube client for Windows Mobile and Symbian devices which replaces the pre-installed app.

This new version brings with it some nice new features to make the mobile version of YouTube more like the desktop one. Personally I would say a vast improvement over the standard Windows Mobile offering.

Below is a short video showing you these new features and a general overview of the application.

Samsung Galaxy Portal unboxing video

portal When the Samsung Galaxy came out in August of last year I think it was the first Android powered handset that I really wanted to own. While I liked the Android OS, prior to the Galaxy I felt that other Android handsets were not particularly attractive or interesting but the Galaxy came along with its neat, think styling and OLED display, it was pretty cool!

So Samsung have launched a follow up to the Galaxy called the Galaxy Portal. Pretty similar styling to the original Galaxy, still thin and pretty stylish looking but the buttons below the display have been changed and there’s now a few more alongside them.

One thing that already bugs me about the Portal (and a few other handsets coming out at the moment) is that it still have Android 1.5 (cupcake) which feels rather dated now. Having come from the 2.1 powered HTC Legend and Nexus One those 1.5 handsets don’t have such a nice feel to them. Will the average customer care about that? Perhaps not but I suspect that it might be a little off putting for the higher-end user.

To find out what else may have changed since the original Samsung Galaxy you’ll have to wait for out full review but for now you can have a look at the unboxing video below where I’ll take you on a tour of the hardware and give you a little look around the OS too.

Zune HD demo video

zune hd platinum All eyes have been on Windows Phone 7 Series recently and it’s looking to be a decent OS, although, if recent rumours are to be believed,  it does have some flaws.

One of the interesting new features on WP7S will be the integration of Zune services.

Here in the UK we are not that familiar with Zune as the units were only sold in the USA and even if you brought one back to the UK, you couldn’t gain access to Zune services. But that is soon to change!

I’m lucky enough to own a Zune HD and as you will see in this short video the Zune experience is a pretty nice one. I thought I would record a very quick video of the user interface on my Zune HD to give you a taster as the Zune software in the new WP7S devices will probably be much the same as you see in the video.
