Unboxing Live 110: AT&T MiFi Liberate

In this episode we open up the AT&T MiFi Liberate, a portable mobile hotspot that sports two really unique features: a 2.8-inch touchscreen for managing settings, and a 2900 mAh battery that lasts up to 11 hours per charge. This makes it easy to get up to 10 devices connected to the MiFi Liberate 4G LTE signal, and once connected, you can pretty much stay connected all day. It's small, looks great, and is super portable, and in areas where there is no LTE, you will fall back onto HSPA+. Also cool, you can put an a microSD card up to 32GB in size to create shared storage space. Check out the video above to see how it all works!

Unboxing Live 107: HTC 8X Windows Phone

We got a look at the AT&T HTC 8X Windows Phone device, running Windows Phone 8, and we hit you with an unboxing of this smartphone in this episode. The 8X is HTC's flagship Windows Phone 8 device, sporting a 720p display with 1080p video recording from both the front and rear cameras. It's rare to get that high a recording resolution from a front camera, and is a nice touch that sets the 8X apart from other Windows Phone 8 devices from companies like Nokia and Samsung.

In this episode we open up the Sprint LG Optimus G smartphone, which runs on Sprint's new 4G LTE network. LG's Optimus G device has a great display, is super-thin, and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at launch.

Nokia Lumia 900 unboxing gallery

AT&T, Microsoft, and Nokia are all making a big bet on the Lumia 900 Windows Phone, which launched on April 8 for $99 with two-year contract. That's a great deal, being that this is one of the first AT&T LTE devices, and the first major mainstream Nokia Windows Phone device to hit the US. Those who pre-order through Walmart get it at half price ($49 with contract,) and new AT&T customer walk away with the Nokia Lumia 900 for free. We got our Lumia 900 in a bit early, and we're working on getting our final review up. In the meantime, though, we've put together a Lumia 900 unboxing gallery showing off the hardware. Go ahead and take a look--it's a gorgeous device! When you're done with that, then head over and get a peek at our insanely thorough Lumia 900 review!

Unboxing Live 091: iPad 3rd Generation

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Features, Handhelds, Videocasts

We open up the brand new iPad (3rd generation) in this episode. The new iPad (or iPad 3, as some call it) from Apple features an amazing Retina display, A5X processor with quad-core graphics, and optional 4G LTE from Verizon or AT&T. It's a nice upgrade from the previous iPad 2, and is the best tablet for the money that you can get today. In fact, you can get one right now from Apple. All you'll find in the box is the iPad tablet itself, along with a sync cable and AC adapter for charging, and that's really it. Not much to this one, but not to worry, we'll have plenty more iPad (3rd Generation) videos for you soon, including some LTE speed tests.

Unboxing Live 087: Droid RAZR MAXX

In this episode we give you a look at the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX. This is a follow-up to the Droid RAZR, with the major difference being that the RAZR MAXX packs in a 3300 mAh battery. The result? The RAZR MAXX has twice the battery life of the Droid RAZR that was just released a couple of months ago. In fact, this is the first 4G LTE smartphone that we've found that doesn't have horrible battery life. With the Droid RAZR MAXX, you can count on the battery to last all day and night, which is a welcome change from what we've found with other 4G smartphones. It's also got an 8 megapixel camera that records 1080p, and the front camera records 720p as well. It's also got a 1.2 GHz dual core processor. You can pick up the Droid RAZR MAXX for $299.
