Review: Motorola Atrix 4G with Lapdock and HD Multimedia Dock

atrix-4g_04

On the surface, it seemed like any number of other Android smartphones, but it’s that extra functionality that really looked like it was going to be a game changer. But how does that whole docking into a multimedia centre experience really pan out in real life?

Bell Expands Mobile TV Offerings for Smartphones and Tablets

device-tablet

In case you haven’t joined the revolution already, you might want to know that you don’t have to sit in your living room to watch television. You don’t even need to be at a computer for an Internet stream. Bell would love it if you picked up a tablet and starting watching TV there (in addition to your home service, of course).

motorola-atrix-4g-dock-1

Motorola took a little bit of wind out of its own sails by letting the AT&T event reveal the Motorola Atrix 4G, but the Motorola event a few hours later let you get up close and personal with the hot new smartphone… if you could fight past the nerdgasm to get close enough, that is.

Canadians getting more WP7 devices with hardware keyboards

5621-dell-venue-pro-windows-phone-7-keyboard_thumb

I’m partial to physical keyboards, because for the life of me, I just can’t achieve the same kind accuracy and speed on a virtual keyboard. That’s why I’m happy to hear Microsoft’s intent on bringing more QWERTY-packing Windows Phone 7 devices to the Canadian market.

Bell to reposition Solo to compete with Chatr

solomobile

It seems that everyone is doing some jockeying around with the arrival of the new wireless carriers in Canada. You may have already heard that Rogers Wireless is launching its new Chatr brand to compete with the likes of Wind Mobile. Well, Bell is sort of doing the same.

Instead of creating a new name brand altogether, it’s going to “relaunch” the Solo Mobile brand. This repositioning and rebranding effort resurrects the Solo name from near death, since Bell has been pushing its Virgin Mobile marque a little heavier and Solo’s been lost in the mix.

HTC Legend to arrive in Canada before the US

HTC Legend Android Smartphone

Yes, everyone is still clamoring over the pending official announcement of a new iPhone, but that doesn’t mean that other smartphones should be left out in the cold. In fact, you could get a rather legendary phone from Bell, possibly by the end of this month. From what we hear, Bell Mobility is hosting a special launch party in Montreal on May 27 and it is there that they will be hocking the new HTC Legend smartphone. The Canadian carrier has yet to announce an official release date, but a launch party is a pretty good indication.

HTC Legend on its way to Canada via Bell Mobility?

HTC Legend on its way to Bell Mobility?

Do you like Android phones? Do you like the hardware that comes out of HTC? Do you live in Canada? It seems like all three of these criteria are going to be satisfied with the pending release of the HTC Legend.

According to the most recent rumors, the HTC Legend is on its way to Bell Mobility. We originally thought that Telus was getting it, since it already has the HTC Hero, but it seems that Bell is snatching this one up instead.

Samsung Messenger Phone arriving at Bell Mobility this week

Do you like descriptive names? Sure, it’s fun hearing about the Dell Streak or the BlackBerry Curve, but these names don’t really tell you anything about what these devices do. Bucking that trend is theSamsung Messenger, a phone designed with messaging in mind. How appropriate.

Palm Pre now free on Bell Mobility

palmpre.200

The Palm Pre was supposed to be the savior for Palm. It was to rise above the Treos and Centros that came before it, offering a truly powerful alternative to the Apple iPhone. Things haven’t gone quite as well as Palm had hoped, but that seems to be working in your favor.

If you’ve been patient and wanted a bargain, Bell Mobility may be the place to go. The Canadian carrier has slashed the price on the Palm Pre to a much more affordable zero dollars and zero cents. Not one penny. Back when it first launched, the Palm Pre was sold by Bell for $199.95 with a three-year contract, placing it on par with the iPhone.

Hey Vancouver hockey fans! As the hometown Canucks gear up for a potential playoff run, you’ll have an opportunity to meet a couple of the team’s star players and cash in on some free stuff while you’re at it. They’re not quite Roberto Luongo, but you still want to meet these Canucks.

I got an email in my inbox from Best Buy, informing me that Alex Burrows will be making an appearance at the Cambie Best Buy on Sunday, March 21st between 2pm and 4pm. Presumably, he’ll be there for autographs and photo ops.
