Archos 5 Internet Tablet Review: I Can’t Recommend It

The Archos 5 tablet is Archos’ first ever stab at an Android tablet (back in mid-late 2009). It has a 4.8-inch (WVGA) resistive touchscreen, ARM Cortex A8 clocked at 800Mhz, 256MB of RAM, has Android 1.6, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and finally 16GB of storage space, sans a microSD card option. Right off the bat though, from the resistive touchscreen to its inability to watch YouTube videos off the mobile site, I can’t recommend it, to anyone. Read on to know why (if you’re even so inclined).

U.S Cellular To Launch Its Own Galaxy S Phone, The Mesmerize

If you live in a state where U.S Cellular is offered, and prefer their CDMA service, then you’ll be in luck for the Samsung Mesmerize, a Galaxy S phone. Its specs match that of most other Galaxy S devices, with a Super AMOLED display (4-inch), 1 GHz Hummingbird processor, 5 megapixel camera, SWYPE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, and micro-SD card slot. The official presser that arrived in our inbox this afternoon also came with a handy note; that it’ll ship with Android 2.1 on October 27 and get upgraded to 2.2 “later this year”. Full press release, after the jump.

This just in: a group of “Angry Birds” are about to completely demolished your work ethics, and perhaps will become the most-used app on your Android smartphone? What is it?

More Windows Phone 7 Phones Lea, I Just Wonder If I’ll Ever Get To See One

Seriously. HTC Mondrian. LG Optimus — whatever. All these Windows Phone 7 handsets leak, and not one of them are released. All of that is due to change in NYC this month, but I still wonder when HTC, LG, or Samsung, will move a leg and start getting these devices out. And send me a review unit of each of course.

Anyways, above is a 13-minute saga of the next leaked Windows Phone 7 phone (sorry for that pun), the Samsung GT-i8700, aka Omnia 7, successor to the dreadful Omnia II I reviewed (you can find it in the reviews section). Enjoy.

Motorola DROID Pro: It’s Like Business And Android. In Harmony.

The Motorola DROID Pro is well — unexpected and surprising? A Blackberry-esque keyboard, Android 2.2, is a global-phone, and can utilize Verizon’s CDMA bands at the same time. Whether or not it has a touchscreen, none of us know, but more on this as it develops.

Update: Motorola CEO Sanjay Jah has gone up on stage (possibly at CTIA 2010) and remarked that the DROID Pro is real, will be coming in the first week of November, and has a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera, 3.1-inch display, and 1GHz processor

Google Goggles Now Available On iPhone 4 And 3GS

Google Goggles — an image searching app — after a year of release on Android, is now part of the iOS4 App store, and is compatible with iPhone 4s and the old 3GS. A quick recap of what the heck Goggles is: You can search products, places of interests, logos, and just about anything else, and find the exact match on Google. Essentially if you don’t know what something is, instead of Google, you Goggle.

Skype For Android Finally Released As A Proper App, But With No 3G Calling

So, Skype. YOu’ve finally given us the Skype app, which allows for all good Skype things you do in the desktop (sans video calling) on an Android 2.1 and up phone, but without any 3G access (for now)?

What do you have to say for yourselves?

Anywho, the app works properly over Wi-Fi, and can be download form Skype.com/m or the Android Market. The app does have some issues with Samsung Galaxy S phones, which appropriately, Skype is bug squashing.
