I am delighted to be able to announce the first ever edition of the 361 Degrees Podcast – a new venture by Ewan MacLeod of Mobile Industry Review, Rafe Blandford of All About Symbian and yours truly (with my Wireless Worker hat on). I’m fortunate to have had the pleasure of working with these chaps quite a bit recently and we wanted to produce something that would offer the readers of each of our sites a taste of some broader topics.

Video Quickies: Motorola Atrix

by Ben Smith on 24th February 2011

Impressed by some of the business features the Motorola Atrix is sporting (such as finger-print authentication and a desktop environment with connections to remote applications) I shot 4 short videos of the device being demonstrated whilst at Mobile World Congress.

Motorola’s not a name I’d come to expect much in the way of innovation from but aside from being a high-spec Android smart-phone there’s a number of innovative new features to this device that will have me watching them more closely from now on. OK, they are still the RAZR people, but with a bit more of this I could forgive and forget…

For me, day 2 was all about the Chinese manufacturers. HTC and Huawei both introduced significant numbers of phones and tablets that show how strong they are right now.

Over on Wireless Worker I’ve  published a set of videos and pictures in a first-look at the HP (previously Palm) TouchPad, Pre 3 and Veer. WebOS looks like it’s matured nicely since we first saw it, but facing stiff competition against a range of other similar devices it’s likely operator take-up will play a big [...]
