Motorola to unveil tablet at CES


We have know for a while that Motorola have been working on a Android tablet running Honeycomb, but what we didn’t know was when it would be officially presented to us. Motorola have released the below video which apart from being genius (so i think) confirms that they will be showing off the new device at CES in the USA early next month.

Rather than guessing at specs etc lets just be patient for a couple of weeks and get it from the horses mouth. Could this put a dampener on the Samsung Galaxy Tab?

Samsung Galaxy Player to be shown at CES


Samsung have made MP3 players for years but at long last it looks like they may well have an alternative to the Apple iPod Touch. The Galaxy Player is believed to be unveiled at CES in the States next week and looking at its specs it would appear to be a beast!

The 9.9mm thick Galaxy Player (YP-GB1) runs on Android 2.2 Froyo OS and features a 1GHz CPU, 4-inch Super Clear LCD screen supporting up to WVGA resolution (800×480), T-DMB, SoundAlive audio enhancing technology, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, 3.2MP rear camera with front facing camera for video calling, GPS, HD video playback, microSD card slot, Android Market and Samsung Apps access and a 1200mAh removable battery.

Sounds a bit of alright, but I wonder how much it will cost. I think I had better start saving.

Advent Vega unboxing video

advent_vega The Advent Vega is one of the most attractive Android tablets coming to market. The tablet is only being sold through the Dixons group and sells out within a few hours of stock updates. They just can’t make enough of them. Here we have managed to acquire one and will be giving it a full review.

The main reason for this wild rampage is that whilst the device is pretty cheap it happens to also be extrememly powerful. Most Tablets let one to the features drop a level in order to keep the price low however Advent maintain a high level across the board especially as it includes the Tegra II chipset. Some might argue that the build quality has suffered mind you.

Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type Unboxing Video


The C3-01 is the second ‘touch and type’ device we have had from Nokia recently. The first was the X3-02 and although there are not huge differenced between the two handsets this new C3 does feel of better quality and is aimed at a slightly higher market. Running S40 the C3-01 is far from being as smart as Nokia’s Symbian S60 phones but it will give you basic Smartphone functions such as email and instant messaging.

With its traditional style keypad the Nokia C3-01 will definitely appeal to millions of users and this maybe the perfect transition between a ‘dumb phone’ and a Smartphone?

Check out the unboxing video below and see if you think this new Nokia maybe your cup of tea.

Your contacts will only be able to see you if your device has a camera. Make sure your device is running iOS 4.0 or above and that you are using Skype for iPhone 3.0 or above.

The contacts you are calling must be using one of the following Skype clients:

I’m looking forward to checking this out on the new year!

Angry Birds for iOS gets an update – 15 new levels


Angry Birds for iOS has received an update in the last few days bringing not only 15 new levels but also a few new features. A new golden egg is now available but more interesting is the ‘Mighty Eagle’. If you cant complete the level you can summon the Mighty Eagle to help. The downside here is that it will cost you 59 pence. I wasn’t very impressed with that but if you are desperate to kill those pigs it may solve your dilemma.

Check your updates do download these new additions.
