Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is a push for better smartphone photography

Though it's only got one lens, no projector and isn't an all-around mind-blow like some of Sony's other announcements at this year's CES, their cellphone division is following the lead and pushing the envelope of just what in-phone cameras are capable of.

CES 2011 to see Android Honeycomb tablet from LG Electronics

Not surprisingly, Motorola won't be the only one rocking out with a Honeycomb tablet this week. We're fully expecting to see the Motorola XOOM at CES in a couple of days, but it's going to be joined by an offering from LG as well.

Review: Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro is a little different. Even though it is largely sold as a "feature phone" rather than a smartphone, it has real smartphone brains under the hood with its Symbian S60 5th edition operating system. Does this make it a really good value for people who want web connectivity and smartphone-like functionality at a "dumbphone"-like price point? You'll soon find out.

Plantronics Voyager Pro UC: the “smart” Bluetooth headset

Bluetooth headsets are pretty useful, especially if you're in one of those places where handheld cell phones are illegal while driving. That said, it can be pretty annoying when your call gets routed to the headset when said headset is on your desk rather than on your ear. The new Plantronics Voyager Pro UC fixes that.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro at fido, $275 outright

Believe it or not, there are still people out there who don't want a smartphone. They don't want a full data plan, but they may still be interested in some smartphone-like functionality. That's where something like the new Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro would come into play.

McGill University robotics remove man’s prostate

Over at McGill University, a team of surgeons have successfully removed a patient's prostate without the use of human hands.

Addonics’ five drive redundant RAID enclosure is ultra-compact, uses 2.5″ drives

Most RAID boxes out there use 3.5-inch drives, the 2.5-inch drive models which are typically used in notebooks, netbooks and portable harddrives don’t get used beyond that. There are some dual 2.5-inch RAID enclosures out there, but none can claim to the five drive capacity that Addonics’ latest Compact RAID enclosure supports

Nokia N8 hands-on, loads of pics at IFA

Its anodized aluminum case in silver-white, gray, orange, blue and, my favorite, a kind of retro sci-fi green, is a treat to hold and behold, but where you really find the wow is on the entertainment side of things

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 finally landing on AT&T next week

Synaptics announces suite of advanced multitouch displays for Windows 7/Android tablets

The Apple iPhone wasn't the first touchscreen cell phone, but it certainly popularized the format. The same thing is happening with the Apple iPad, and now there's much more demand for multitouch tablets than ever before. Capitalizing on this trend is Synaptics with its new line of displays

Sony Ericsson Cedar feature phone gets a little green

The newly revealed Sony Ericsson Cedar cell phone doesn't look like much, but this affordable handset is actually quite elegant in its presentation. It's not a smartphone, but appears to offer integrated Facebook and Twitter access. That's a good start. You may also notice beyond the elegant design, that the Cedar makes uses of recycled plastics, offers a lower power charger, comes with an e-manual, and is wrapped up in compact packaging.

A Guide to Shopping for Electronics in Taipei

Since Taiwan is home to so many computer and electronics companies, you would assume that it could be a shopping Mecca for all the gadget geeks of the world. While I wouldn't quite put it on par with the legendary Akihabara region in Tokyo, Taipei is no slouch when it comes to buying some cutting edge technology.

Motorola Droid Xtreme pics leaked, coming to Verizon soon

Some shots of the upcoming Motorola Droid Xtreme were released this week. The handset destined for Verizon Wireless has a massive 8 megapixel camera with HD video support and an HDMI video output port. Digital imaging tech in smartphones are really getting out of control as of late, we are expecting the next iPhone 4G to get some HD mc’lovin from Apple. If they don’t serve up some high-def goodness than they may be playing catch up to Android yet again.

Hands on: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Android smartphone

I was able to enjoy some brief hands-on time with the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 during CES in January. At first glance, it's quite clear that the X10 is in direct competition with devices like the Apple iPhone 3GS, it's big touchscreen display and lack of physical keyboard screams "touch me." While it does make use of a rather vanilla build of Google Android (1.6) for its core operating system, it's equipped with two additional user interface features: Mediascape and Timescape. The former is used to manage your pictures, music, and so on, whereas the latter gathers up your social networking and messaging things.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 available April 15th from Rogers

We had already heard that Rogers Wireless would have the Canadian exclusive on the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, but we were left with little more than a "coming soon" when it came to a release date. That has now changed and you may be TimeScaping with the best of them very soon. Continuing with the Google Android revolution, Rogers has started to take preorders for the Xperia X10. This comes a short while after Best Buy jumped the gun by offering pre-orders on the phone as well.

Review: Addonics NAS2XU2 NAS 2.0 adapter
