We were fortunate to have been sent the Samsung Galaxy Note (GT-N7000) just before the Christmas holidays began and whilst we’ve been keeping our mouths full of mince pies, chocolate and mulled wine we’ve also taken some time to unbox and capture a quick gallery.
Is it a tablet or is it a smartphone? Difficult to say and we’ve seen mixed reviews regarding its 5.3″ front panel. While we continue to test out the Galaxy Note, here’s a quick summary of its key specs.

Recently we were sent the new and recently launched Huawei E586 Three MiFi mobile broadband modem for a review. For those of you who don’t know exactly how this works, its essentially a simple portable device that provides its users internet access via a 3G data connection on the go. In many ways it is similar to that of 3G on your smartphone, the advantage of using a MiFi is that it enables more than one WiFi enabaled device to use the same connection at the same time.
Announced earlier this year in April, the HTC Sensation was originally rumoured to be the HTC Pyramid, I for one am personally glad the latter name was wiped off the board. The Sensation is probably one of HTC’s highest-spec offerings to date against other brands such as Samsung, LG and Sony Ericsson who have all in recent years jumped onto the Android bandwagon. Not to say the least, the Sensation is highly capable of tempting iPhone users to trying out a droid and making the switch for the first time.
Sony Ericsson has been having a nice run of Android powered smartphones lately with price tags varing from high to low to suit the needs of potential customers. Announced officially here in the UK not many months ago is the classy and elegantly designed Gingerbread powered Xperia Arc and our friends at Geeky Gadgets recently got to test it out.
Seagate’s been in the hard drive business for donkeys years and recently we were sent one of their relatively new (2010) FreeAgent GoFlex 320GB portable external hard drives for a review. Their main selling point? – Its the ‘World’s most upgradeable hard drive’, we’ll see in the quick review below what they actually mean by that.
What makes the Samsung Galaxy Player 50 especially appealing amongst the mist of a world of portable media players or handheld devices is that its been embroidered with the Samsung Galaxy badge – which many of you will know about due to the success of its distant cousin, the Samsung Galaxy S Android phone. While its second ‘attraction’ will no doubt be the fact that its runs on Android, a relatively cheaper alternative to Apple’s iOS if having apps is what you’re after.
Let’s face the truth, frankly, the LG Optimus One P500 isn’t as glamourous as many Android counterparts. As a result it is much more affordable, and this is where we think the LG Optimus One P500 may excel – the Android newbie’s market.
As always, in this focused review we’ll be covering the features you’ve been wanting to find out more about.
