HTC Magic Phone Review

by on May.16, 2009, under technology

In today’s technology market there is surely one phone everyone thinks of when you consider Smartphone’s, which is of course the iPhone (or possibly the Blackberry Storm). However for the past week I have been using the latest Smartphone from HTC … the HTC Magic. Recent reviews all over the internet report that this phone will soon become iPhone’s biggest competitor and I can see why.
Looking at the specification for the phone, this weighs in at 116g with the dimensions 4.45 x 2.19 x 0.54 inches. To me this is a very nice size for a phone and while the screen may not be as large as some of the other Smartphone’s available at the moment the user interface makes up for this.
The first thing I noticed about the HTC Magic is that there is no physical keyboard interface of any kind, the phone actually utilises a software QWERTY keyboard which adapts to the orientation of the phone. At first it took a couple of minutes to get used to as does the predictive text because if words are not found within the dictionary the phone defaults to the nearest match. Whilst this was a little annoying at first now all my typical words have been added, I now find using this interface to be a lot quicker than it was on my old phone which used a slide out QWERTY keyboard.


Ok now down to the feature list, the basic features of this phone that come with this phone are simply what you would expect from a smart phone. By default it comes with the following:

  • Wi-Fi / Bluetooth / mini USB / GPS
  • Touch screen
  • Email clients (x2)
  • 3.2 megapixel camera with video capture support
  • Integrated web browser
  • Multiple Desktops (3)
  • Media centre
  • Calendar / multiple alarms
  • Google Application Integration including Maps, Email, Talk, Search
  • YouTube video player
  • Desktop widgets – default widgets include calendar, music, search, analogue clock and a picture frame

Asus Eee PC 701 – Must for any Geek on the move

by on Jun.09, 2007, under technology

Hehehe this looks amazing and will appeal to anyone who like to use a laptop whilst on the move.

Specification at the moment is as follows:

  • 7in display
  • laptop-like QWERTY keyboard
  • Intel’s Ultra Mobile Platform chip technology
  • 512MB of memory
  • 4, 8 or 16GB of Flash storage
  • 802.11b/g Wi-Fi
  • 100Mbps Ethernet
  • 0.3-megapixel camera, stereo speakers, microphone, VGA output
  • 22.5 x 16.5 x 2.1-3.5cm

It is expected to go for around £100 or $200 but once demand increases I can see this price increasing.Basically its just a machine for accessing the net whilst your on the move, not going to be powerful enough to run most 3d games, but that price who really cares.

The full story can be seen at Engadget – Chinese or an english version can be found at reghardware
Cheers to DotWaffle who found this in the first place and showed me it 😉
