Samsung Droid Charge and HTC Thunderbolt unboxing

After a long video sabbatical, I’m back in front of the camera. We’ve got a lot of phones to cover this summer, so I’m jumping out of the gate with a double unboxing of Smasung’s Droid Charge and the HTC Thunderbolt–both LTE 4G phones on Verizon Wireless. Connectivity isn’t all these gadgets have in common though. Their spec sheets are almost… Read more

Samsung Infuse 4G: first impressions

We generally like to introduce a new device in our arsenal with a video unboxing and then follow up with photo/video samples, a full, written review, and possibly some Q&A vids. But we don’t want to hold out on content while taking care of some glitches in our video editing department, so here is our first still photo unboxing and first impressions… Read more

Video: Google Cr-48 Chrome OS notebook – Unboxing, setup

With 60,000 free notebooks up for grabs, it seems reasonable to assume that anyone who requested entry into Google’s Cr-48 pilot program on day one of submissions would snag their own unbranded, soft touch black beauty. But I was still pretty thrilled to have one dropped at my door this morning, not having mentioned anything about DroidDog in my… Read more

Logitech Revue unboxing and early look

I hate to drop 20-plus minutes of video on you for what I intended to be a simple unboxing and hands-on, as it were, but there’s a lot going on with Logitech’s (and my) entry into the world of Google TV. I have to admit that I wasn’t sure where to start or how to organize my coverage of the many features, which are still very new to me. But rest assured,… Read more

HTC T-Mobile G2 unboxing and hands on

Here she is, the successor to the G1 and the latest QWERTY-packing Android flagship, HTC’s T-Mobile G2. The phone features a Qualcomm MSM7230 processor clocked at 800MHz, 4GB ROM (reported, I see 1GB available), 512 MB RAM, GPS/aGPS and a 5MP cam with autofocus and flash. The 1,300mAh battery is a bit of a disappointment, but I haven’t had the phone long… Read more

Motorola DROID R2-D2 [Verizon] unboxing and hands on

Are all of you Star Wars fans ready? Tomorrow, September 30th, Verizon will be selling the DROID R2-D2 limited edition handset at the Verizon Wireless website and at select retail locations for $249 after $100 mail-in rebate on a new two year contract. I have a feeling that these things will sell out quickly and considering the collectibility of Star Wars… Read more

Samsung Epic 4G unboxing and hands on

In light of Samsung’s NYC presser and introduction of Media Hub, I thought this was a good time for me get back into the Galaxy S series and take the new Media Hub entertainment app/database/delivery system for a spin. But before I can do that, I need to get a feel for the phone I’m going to test it on, Sprint’s Epic 4G. This is Sprint’s second 4G device… Read more

Motorola DROID X [Verizon] Unboxing

As many of you likely know, the DROID X is sold out and Best Buy doesn’t know the phones are coming until they’re actually at the dock…or coming out of the bulk boxes. I was lucky enough to get the call on my pre-order today, after waiting rather impatiently, and I have to say that this one appears to be worth the wait. Stay tuned to DroidDog for more… Read more

Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro unboxed and hands on

It’s been a little while since I unboxed the SE X10 Mini, and a couple of people asked if I was waiting for questions and requests. I wasn’t waiting for those (I won’t have time, sadly) but I was waiting on something…the X10 Mini Pro! This cute little guy seems like a beast in disguise. I’ve only had it open for a few hours, but I’m surprized with the… Read more

Unboxed: Arkon universal docks/mounting kits

Just as I was contemplating the purchase of another car dock, this one to facilitate navigation and charging with my EVO 4G, I get a box at my door loaded with car mounting options: Dashboard mounts, windshield mounts, an air conditioner vent mount, and even a complete mounting surface. Now I just have to decide which one to use because each one works with… Read more
