Recently we were able to acquire a Qtek 9100, a European version of the soon to be released Cingular 8125. The HTC Wizard is a Windows Mobile 5.0 cellular phone with a sliding QWERTY keyboard and a great little form factor. For more information on the Wizard, and our full review, read on.
SCOTTeVEST truly is Technology Enabled Clothing, as the company touts. Using this philosophy, SCOTTeVEST has developed a full line of clothing specially geared toward those who need to carry multiple gadgets but never had the pockets to do so. In the past, we have taken a look at their Three.0 Spring Jacket, Hidden Cargo Shorts, TEC T-Shirt, Classic Vest, Solar Jacket, Sport Coat, and Hidden Cargo Pants. Today, we take a look at what might be their best product to date - by far. At first glance, the Milan Leather Jacket is impressive. We put it through a full review after the jump.
It’s no secret that the iPod is easily scratched and now with the introduction of the “nano black” iPods, scratches seem to find their way on these high priced devices even easier and more noticeable than ever before. So what do you do about it other than yell, fall to the floor and start crying? Shell out $24.95 for a protective covering that promises to keep your new toy shiny and scratch free. We were able to get one at the same time that we purchased a 60 GB black iPod and share our experience after the jump.
When we received the Canary Wireless Digital Hotspotter, I was unsure of how useful the product would be in this day and age. After all, I have been doing just fine flipping open my PowerBook and checking to see if there was a wireless signal around. Why would we need a device that is dedicated to detecting wi-fi networks that are surrounding you? Well, you have to use it to know. The CanaryWireless Digital Hotspotter is an extremely helpful little device, and we explain why after the jump.
PlayFeed has some impressions up of the Vaja i-Volution PSP case. If you aren’t aware, Vaja is the makes of many a luxury case for a multitude of gadgets.
The opening of any Vaja box is an experience. Inside is a beautifully crafted piece of work, and it seems the room fills with the aroma of fresh leather. This case is available in 29 colors, or 15 color combinations for the eccentric. For us, Vaja sent us the i-Volution decked out in Gear Live orange and gray. Can’t hate on that.
No, you sure can’t. Read on for full impressions.

So just about everyone who could afford it picked up the new 5th generation iPod with video support, and it seems that it is a hit. Adding to the myriad of reviews out there, we figured we would do a no-nonsense “quick review” of the device. Not sure what that means? Well, after writing the full review twice and having it turn up as garbled text both times, we have shortened it to hit the keys point to save from further frustration that would result in throwing an iMac through the window.
We have finally got our hands on one of those new Vaja iVod DJ cases for the 4th generation iPod, and this one was made using the Vaja Choice service. Vaja has enabled us to dress our iPod to the nines in Gear Live colors as you can see from the image above. We took tons of images, and give our full impressions, after the jump.
Check out this Green Day iPod case. I know, it is a little strange to carry around a case featuring the name of a band, but if you are a fan, this deserves a closer look. I have been testing the case for a few days, and I am impressed with the protection that it offers the iPod. I squeezed a 60 GB iPod photo into this thing, and immediately I knew that this thing could be dropped from a reasonable height without worry. The iPod pocket is lined with a very soft felt, eliminating the worry of scratching up your device by inserting and removing it from the case. The front flap covers the face of the iPod, and is held in place with a magnet just strong enough to hold the case closed - but not strong enough to get to your data.
Flipping the case open, you will find that the only portion of the iPod that is not protected is the click wheel, giving you full access to the functionality of the unit. On the underside of the flap are the words “American Idiot”. Even with a closed case, the top and bottom ports of the iPod are available for your use. The Green Day case also has an integrated belt clip, one of the few that I have seen that isn’t too bulky to be comfortable. The case is available at Circuit City, and comes with a $2 off coupon for a music purchase from the store, along with a card for two free music downloads, and a couple of fan club stickers. Check out the rest of the images after the jump.
While the Motorola ROKR landed with a dull thud, SonyEricsson has launched the W800 with almost no noise at all. While the this phone doesn’t have iTunes (although you can hack it to make it seem like it does), what it does have is far more features and versatility than the ROKR, and a price tag to match. Let’s get the hard part out of the way. The W800i is going to cost you $499. No service providers in the US are offering the phone at this point, which means that you’re not going to be able to get a subsidy to offset the cost of the phone. What do you get for your five Benjamins? Let’s take a look ...
We got a new toy in the mail today, which will be reviewed in full soon enough here on Gear Live. First impressions are incredibly positive. The packaging is quite impressive, and there is what feels like a ton of stuff packed into the attractive “bubble”. The headset cord comes in two pieces, with the microphone portion containing a standard 3.5mm headphone jack so that you can use any cans you want. The installed headphones are a variation on their popular in-ear headphones (of which I already own a pair), and the sound quality is excellent. Read on for more thoughts.
