The New Samsung Captivate to hit Canada
Coming “soon” to Rogers and available across Canada is the Samsung S Captivate, a high-end Android Smartphone nicely packed with all the essential features of any modern cell phone and built with mobile entertainment in mind. However, don’t hold your breath as it is widely speculated that this device will suffer the same back order woes as the other cell phones such as iPhone 4 and HTC Desire. So now it’s a waiting game for the launch date to be announced, hopefully in the early weeks of Q4.
A review of Videotron’s new cell phone plans
Quebecor’s Videotron launched its Wireless network recently (Sept 9) and we took the opportunity to review its cell phone plans which they recently introduced. Unlike the new entrants, Wind Mobile, Mobilicity and Public Mobile – Videotron is an established cable operator with over 2.5 million customers already and with the necessary financial resources to do this (so they can’t be bought out).
The HTC Evo didn’t make it to Canada but it’s refined cousin – The HTC Desire HD – better make it here. I have long said that while Apple got out of the blocks early in 2007 with the iPhone 3Gs and built themselves a sizable lead, the gap has narrowed significantly in 2010 and I would argue there is no lead. This device is flat out SICK. Yeah, I know the screen is freakishly big at 4.3 inches, but to use that one excuse as a reason to not consider this phone just wouldn’t be fair. So here is a video overview of just how awesome the HTC Desire HD really is.
The new Curve 9300 Review
We have done the Blackberry Torch Review, BlackBerry Bold 9700 review but here is the latest review of the BlackBerry Curve model the Curve 9300 3G. This blog should rectify this slight “slight” to the latest in the curve lineup of blackberry cell phones.
Setting up Google Voice in Canada is not complicated or expensive. You may have read several blogs to date, with little luck, but we hope this will be the last. Perhaps there are several other ways to get it to work in Canada, however, this is the process we followed and it works.
Side-by-side comparison of Windows Phone 7, iPhone 4 and Google Nexus One
This is a follow up blog to our Windows Phone 7 Review posted a few days ago. Although Windows Phone 7 (WP7) is yet to launch, the videos below are an excellent side-by-side comparison of the user experience on your – soon to be – WP7 device, the Apple iPhone 4 running iOS and Google’s Nexus One running Android. We look at the main operating system first and everything from answering calls to receiving text messages and pictures on the WP7, to a browser comparison video of the three platforms, followed by an early look at WP7′s email client and how it compares to Android and iOS.
