If you still have nightmares about the original Wildfire, the new version (the Wildfire S) will wipe those notions out of your head. This new phone, now available at T-mobile (or at least it will be in August—not too much longer to wait) is a mid-level Gingerbread phone that has all you really need packed into a tiny, efficient little package.

The Toshiba Thrive hits Best Buy Shelves
12 Jul 2011 - By Omar Mariño

Maybe the Toshiba Thrive is not one of the most revolutionary tablets to hit the marketplace this year but it is certainly one of the newest. While display models have been on store shelves for quite some time, the official retail release date for Toshiba’s little Android-powered tablet wasn’t until yesterday (July 10th). In addition to having some sleek and useful styling, the tablet is also extremely functional with full-sized ports for those of us who really don’t like having micro USB and HDMI cords that only fit one digital accessory. So what do you get for your $480 when you go to your local Best Buy store? Read more >>

8 Jul 2011 - By Omar Mariño

Lenovo’s IdeaPAd K1 is quite an impressive machine but, unfortunately, it isn’t yet available for sale in the United States. That means you have to go through some serious back channels to get your hands on one of these little 10.1 inch machines—or wait. That’s right, it looks as though Lenovo is actively seeking permission to sell the IdeadPad K1 in the United States. In fact, the machine has been submitted to the FCC and is currently awaiting approval! Read more >>

Phones, Phones, and Peripherals that Turn Phones Into Guns?
23 Jun 2011 - By Omar Mariño

Phones aren’t just phones anymore and I’m okay with that. However, I’m not okay with everyone trying to copycat the iPhone and make a million dollars like they came up with the idea. That’s why, this time around, we’re looking at some of the coolest handhelds I’ve ever seen. The new Nokia N950 and the Dual-screen prototype from Imerj may not be available yet (or ever in the prototype’s case) but knowing that there are companies out there that are thinking out of the box is enough to get me excited.

Extreme Helmet Cameras for the Extreme Enthusiast–Or Not
11 Jun 2011 - By Omar Mariño

You don’t have to be extreme to want a helmet cam to record a first-person view of your high jinx, but that is the market to which most of these camcorders’ manufacturers push their products. There’s nothing saying you can’t strap one to your head and walk around a comic convention or just walk down the street to make an interesting YouTube video. Whatever you plan to use for the helmet cam, you have to know that it has come a long way in just a short time—even models that were top of the line last year have taken a backseat to the new crowd. So here are four cameras that will do what you need them to. They will work in pretty much any situation. Read more >>

New Tablets 2011: The Mania Continues!
2 Jun 2011 - By Omar Mariño

I’m still not hooked on the appeal of tablet computers. I like the concept but what they lack in functionality still has me believing that laptops are—at least for the moment—the superior portable computing solution. However, as they say, there’s no accounting for taste, so for those of you who may think my opinion a bit outdated and prefer a pocket-sized gadget (or at least small satchel-sized), this roundup is for you. Let’s start with MSI’s new offerings in the tablet field, the Enjoy 7 and Enjoy 10 WindPads. Read more >>
