HTC presses home the advantage
HTC certainly isn’t resting on its laurels after a record-breaking, award-winning 2009. It’s following up the T3’s Gadget of the Year, the HTC Hero, with the new HTC Legend and its superphone, the HTC Desire.
Motorola fighting its way back to the top
Motorola is also enjoying the fruits of an excellent back-end of 2009, announcing three new phones since the turn of the year. The Backflip, the Quench, and the US-exclusive Devour have all arrived since January and we’ve captured them all on video.
Google enters the hardware market in style
We got our first look at the Google Nexus One handset at CES 2010 in Las Vegas. Crafted by HTC, but with Google’s own interpretation of the Android OS, it boasts a spectacular 3.7-inch OLED screen, Android 2.0 software and a rare 5-star review from T3. Soon to arrive in the UK, this could be a game changer.
Samsung riding the crest of a Wave
Samsung has launched its own bada OS to compete with the open-source Android and, at MWC 2010, it launched its first handset on the platform. The Samsung Wave has a beautiful OLED screen, but can the new OS make it a must-own phone for 2010? Check out the video below.
Sony Ericsson turns to Android for salvation
Sony Ericsson finally jumped onto the Android bandwagon at Mobile World Congress with its long-awaited Xperia X10. Boasting a mammoth 4.0-inch touchscreen, an 8-megapixel camera and a brand new social networking-friendly UI, could it challenge the HTCs and Motorolas of the world? Sony Ericsson also hedged its bets by releasing two pocket versions of the device, the X10 Mini, and the QWERTY-rocking X10 Mini Pro.
