  • Review: HTC HD2 | Teic.ie
    jeans or shirt pocket and not weighing too much to become a nuisance However it is not its physical appearance that is the problem The phone itself runs on Microsoft s Windows Mobile 6 though not that you would know too quickly thanks to the sterling work done by HTC to hide it The aging operating system built for a time before touchscreens really caught on is glossed over with the company s impressive Sense user interface UI and is generally very usable and intuitive A good house built on bad foundations is still going to have its problems however and so does the HD2 At times the Windows Mobile interface peeks through the Sense UI and does its best to frustrate usually by giving users a button too small to press with their finger Its functions particularly when it comes to simple settings are also scattered around in an odd way and at best hard to find in less than a minute Of course it would not be Windows without a few crashes either and the HD2 provided plenty of them though bear in mind that the unit reviewed was pre release and so could have problems that have been ironed out by release That said the device would become unresponsive at times horrendously slow at others and downright unco operative at the drop of a hat resulting in many restarts and battery removals to try to set things straight It is a shame to see too as the HD2 is clearly a superb phone just waiting to prove its might against anything else on the market if only for the iffy software In terms of hardware the thing is absolutely spot on and if HTC were to re release it with an equally polished version of Google s

  • Review: Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 | Teic.ie
    laptop or computer design This altered pattern takes a little bit of getting used to at first with it being very easy to hit wrong key while typing it does not take too long to adjust once you give it time however The curved design does have the added benefit of making the keyboard that little bit more easy on the eye the extremely slim casing also makes it quite a neat fit on the desk Last but not least as the name suggests the keyboard connects to the computer via Bluetooth meaning it does not require any kind of USB connection to work The downside of this of course is that it will only work on laptops or computers with Bluetooth built in This is something that is increasingly common on new computers and if yours does not have it you can always buy an attachment for a relatively small cost Connecting to the computer is easy to do generally although it can some times take a bit of trial and error for both devices to find each other and pair properly Once you have done it the keyboard should remember the computer and vice versa meaning you can turn it off and not have to worry about going through the motions again when you switch it on The keyboard also comes with a separate numeric pad which also connects via Bluetooth and it should be no problem to have either one or both connected at the same time Overall this keyboard is quite a nice replacement for the bog standard one that tends to come with new PCs It would also be a very handy addition for netbook users who type a lot but find the keyboard a little bit too small It may defeat the purpose of

  • Review: Samsung Galaxy Spica | Teic.ie
    in the user interface lead to a lot of annoyance over a period of time For example while the phone s lock de activates the touchscreen and most buttons it does not do the same for the hang up power button which is easily hit while in the pocket This rarely ends in the phone switching off by accident largely due to Android s need for confirmation of a power off but it does mean you have to exit out of the dialogue almost every time you take the phone from your pocket which is frustrating Another problem is the phone s ringer volume which is surprisingly low Even at full blast it is easy to miss messages or calls coming through particularly if the ringtone used is a short one The placement of the camera button at the bottom right hand side of the phone is also troublesome as it is hit accidentally far too easily activating the camera function On the plus side the phone s touchscreen is responsive for the most part and it is good to see Samsung put standard headphone sockets in more of their phones However these small saving graces to not take away from the fact that this phone feels rushed and half hearted This is far from the standard that Samsung has shown in some handsets in the past year and it is also nowhere near as good as its Android based competitors It can only be hoped that the next Samsung Android handset to hit Irish shores can do a better job Buy the Samsung Galaxy Spica from O2 ie Related Posts E3 2010 PS3 to have 20 3D titles by 2011 No Comments Jun 16 2010 Sony launches new Cyber shot cameras No Comments Jan 27 2010 Microsoft open app challenge for WinMo7 No Comments Sep 20 2010 YouTube recording 2bn hits a day No Comments May 17 2010 4 Comments Anil Kumar 08 04 2010 I bought this in Dubai UAE Doesn t have Android Market even though Manual says that Calling Samsung support and they are not equipped to support t All most all apps crashes always Never ever will I buy Samsung or Google phones They are also not providing any updates to 2 1 also PC doesn t recognize USB after installing some apps you have to reset the phone for USB to be detected by PC I am not using the phone now gone back to my Nokia 5310 which is far better Frank Kavanagh 11 05 2010 I have had this phone for about two months Whilst it is not perfect oddly i have NEVER experienced the problems this reviewer had it has not once tried to switch off the ringer volumn is about the same as any of my previous phones 20 years of mostly Nokia and i have NEVER hit the camera button by accident Good points battery life is way better than my N96 processor is way faster than my N96

  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8000 review | Teic.ie
    the front of the device The one little trick it does hold up its sleeve is its built in WiFi which is thankfully becoming a standard across printing devices What is most enjoyable at HP s implementation of WiFi in this instance however is the fact that it works Not just some of the time but in the case of the trial unit used for the purposes of this review all of the time Again set up of this is simple and once it is installed it just does what it is told even from the other side of the building within reason of course As an added bonus printing is fast and quite quiet with the print quality being very impressive even on the quickest of print jobs Printers are known for being a temperamental sort of machine and while the Pro 8000 misses some of the normal pit falls it is not without its eccentricities One bizarre one is its refusal to print when sat on certain flat surfaces the exact reason for which is still a mystery However the main omission that takes away from the HP printer is its distinct lack of a scanner Leaving it out certainly saves space and allows the Pro 8000 to be a master of one job rather than a jack of all trades but at the same time it severely limits its functionality and would force users to purchase one if not two other devices to take care of everyday tasks For example even with a standalone scanner which are not expensive photocopying direct on the device is impossible Instead you would have to scan onto the computer via one application and print from the computer via another all in all taking about 10 minutes more and a lot more

  • Nokia E75 review | Teic.ie
    type with your finger tips rather than finger nails On the side is a hot swappable microSD card slot as well as navigational keys which can be used for scrolling through messages and so on Clearly realising that business users are people too Nokia have also added some more personal functions to the E75 that would be considered the norm on most phones but have often been neglected in the business arena The phone itself sports a 3 2 megapixel camera which seems to suffer in low light conditions but is a good camera phone nonetheless There is also a headphone jack at the top making it easy to use the device as a radio or mp3 player The screen is quite a generous size considering the keypad below it too so watching films would not be too difficult to do either So physically the E75 ticks all the right boxes for a business phone and has some added extras to boot However the operating system it runs on one that would be familiar to any Nokia user struggles to keep up with the functional and slick body it is stored within It is not to say that Symbian S60 is terrible it was once one of the best systems out there However it is quickly being superseeded by the likes of Google Android and even Windows Mobile and so seems dated and clunky Phones like computers can be as powerful and functional as is possible but as long as the wrong software is running on it this will not matter The S60 operating system certainly does not ruin the E75 but it does take some of the sheen away from what is otherwise a very nice business phone In a market as competitive as the mobile sphere one weakness
