Samsung B3410 review

samsung-b3410 Here we have the Samsung B3410 or Delphi as it is otherwise known. This is a very different attempt at mobile phone technology from Samsung as they have chosen to join in with other manufacturers such as Nokia by integrating a full slide out QWERTY keyboard for ease of use; Samsung as a company have been manufacturing mobile phones for many years now and every year have impressed us more and more with their unique looks and little quirks that make Samsung mobiles so intriguing on the eye.

Does the all new approach by Samsung appeal to you? And will it live up to expectation? Let’s find out…

Acer neoTouch P300 unboxing video

P300 Acer seem to be releasing new handsets at a rate of one every three to four weeks. Here we have the latest handset from Acer, the neoTouch P300 which follows on form the E101 and E200 that we reviewed last month.

The P300 is a Windows Mobile 6.5.3 handset with a sliding QWERTY keyboard. There don’t seem to be many Windows Mobile handsets being released at the moment, perhaps some manufacturers holding back after the Windows Phone 7 Series announcement last month at MWC. Acer don’t seem to be holding anything back though as this is the third such handset to be released this year.

The P300 that we have here is a pre-release model. It’s final hardware and ROM but, as you’ll realise when you see the video below, it’s not final retail packaging. You can pre-order the P300 from Clove Technology and we have them to thank for managing to get their hands on the device so early and helping us get the exclusive on the unboxing.

We’ve only got the neoTouch P300 for a day so we wont be writing the full review just yet. I’ve tried to go in to a little more detail in the video below but we’ll have full review for you once the retail version becomes available.

HTC Legend and Desire stock update


If you are waiting to order a sim free HTC Desire or Legend then the good news is that next week both will be available from

The HTC Desire will be in stock on Monday and the Legend from Wednesday.

If you have not placed an order yet I suggest you head on over to as I have a slight suspicion both of these handsets may be rather popular.

If you have not read our review of the HTC Legend you can do so here. The Desire review will hopefully be done before the device is released however HTC have not released any review devices yet.

In addition to ordering online you can call devicewire free on 0800 198 0000 or alternatively use their ‘Live Chat’ service on the site.

Samsung i9000 Galaxy S on video

Galaxy S

Yesterday we brought you the announcement details of Samsungs new flagship Android device, the i9000 Galaxy S.

The guys at mobileburn managed to get a hands on with the device and below you will see their video.

As you will see, the Super AMOLED screen on the Galaxy S is truly amazing and possibly the best screen we have seen to date. Although the technology is the same as the Samsung Wave, that I had a chance to play with at MWC, the Galaxy S has a massive 4 inch capacitive screen to wins on size.

Being able to video record in HD and then watch the video back in HD on that screen will be the deciding factor for some perspective buyers. I know the below video will not do the screen justice but it looks unbelievably vibrant.

This is going to sell like hot cakes when it’s released this summer.

Enjoy the video.
