HTC Dream Review

I was lucky enough to receive a review model of the HTC Dream from Loff International a few weeks back. I was exceptionally excited since this was the first Android based mobile phone I was reviewing. Being a complete geek and getting my little paws on this just after the HTC Dream release date was really amazing. My only problem? I had to give it back after 2 weeks! This usually is not an issue but with…

Samsung F480 Review

I received the Samsung F480 from Samsung almost three weeks ago now and I think I’ve been delaying this review so that I didn’t have to give the phone back. The Samsung F480 is truly an awesome mobile worthy of praise. Features: The F480 is a 98.4 x 55 x 11.6 mm mobile that weighs in at 100.6 g. It is a good looking phone with many people confusing it for an iPhone at first.…
