BlackBerry 9700 USB Sync and 2nd Battery Desktop Charger Review

DSCF0178 are an American company who kindly got in touch with us and asked if we could do a short review for them, so the BlackBerry 9700 Desk Charger headed over the Atlantic.

Although RIM do make an official desktop charger for the BlackBerry 9700 they do not make one which allows for syncing the BlackBerry and charging a spare battery.

Synchronize and recharge your BlackBerry Bold 9700 with the USB Sync and 2nd Battery Charge Cradle. The USB Docking Cradle holds your BlackBerry Bold 9700 at a comfortable reading angle and provides convenient access on your desk. With this device, you can charge your second battery and your phone at the same time. Charge and synchronize data simultaneously when connected to your PC. You can either use the included Mini-USB cable or the AC adapter connected to the cradle to sync and charge your BlackBerry Bold 9700.

Galaxy S 2

Recently the high end Android focus has been on other manufactures but Samsung are back with the I9000 Galaxy S which we hope to have our hands on in the next week or so thanks to our friends at Clove who will selling the device.

The I9000 Galaxy S is Samsung’s flagship Android device. The Galaxy S not only runs version 2.1of Android , but packs a feature set sure to rival that of any other Smartphone.

So what sets this handset apart from other Android devices on the market? First of all there’s the 4″ SUPER-AMOLED, touch-screen display. This new Super AMOLED technology developed by Samsung not only produces an amazing picture, it also saves on battery life, making the I9000 Galaxy S ideal for media playback and in-car satellite navigation.

x10 2.1 coming in Autumn?

rogersmary-twitter-300x113Canadian network Rogers expects to see the Song Ericsson x10 being updated by Fall. That’s on heck of a long wait for those who have shelled out some big numbers to get the phone. I guess for those taking out a contract on Roger’s now that’ll only be a quarter, or perhaps a sixth of the way into their arrangement.
I’m guessing Android 2.3 will be arriving around about then or at least details of what to expect will be concrete but Sony Ericsson really should have gotten their finger out on this.

Bunch of Android phones benchmarked

The Droid, Incredible, Evo 4G and Nexus One go head to head. Should be interesting to see however the Nexus One has the unfair advantage of Android 2.2. Hopefully we will be able to see this update once 2.2 starts to roll out to the other devices here as the results are terribly surprising.

Adapt Mobile Micro Bluetooth Keyboard video

Adapt-angled A few weeks ago I looked at the Freedom Pro Bluetooth keyboard which I think was a great solution for anyone wanting to add a full-size QWERTY keyboard to virtually any mobile device, including the Apple iPad. However, if you want something a little more compact and portable the Micro Bluetooth Keyboard from Adapt Mobile might prove to be a bit more pocketable.

The ADK-100 Micro Bluetooth Keyboard is pretty small, roughly the same footprint as the iPhone for example and weighs just 40 grams. It does however offer 5 rows of pretty decently sized keys. It seems to be a good trade-off being small enough to hold on your hands for two-thumb typing but also large enough to place on the desk to touch-type.

The Micro Bluetooth Keyboard is compatible with most Bluetooth devices from the iPad and iPhone to Windows Mobile and Android. It’ll even with with Playstation3 and PC’s so offers a great deal of versatility.

Check out the video below for a quick unbox and demo of the keyboard in action.

O2 data network back to normal


Full service to O2’s data network has been restored after an air conditioning failure saw parts of the country without a connection yesterday evening

O2’s data network is again fully functional after an intermittent fault saw parts of the country without a data connection for up to eight hours yesterday. O2’s data network went down yesterday afternoon after an air conditioning failure in one of its London sites caused the technology which carries its network data to overheat and break down.

Data services were restored in London, O2’s biggest area for data consumption, by 9:30pm yesterday evening. O2 said all problems were resolved by 1am this morning. An O2 spokesperson said: "An air conditioning failure in one of our London sites caused two nodes which carry network data to overheat yesterday.

"This resulted in intermittent data access for customers in some parts of the UK. Full service was restored by 1am today. We apologise to our customers for the loss of service."
