Unboxing Live 069: Motorola Droid X2 smartphone

We open up the Motorola Droid X2 in this episode of Unboxing Live, giving you a look a the first dual-core Android device available on Verizon Wireless. This is the follow-up to the original Droid X, and maintains the same form factor and physical buttons, as well as the huge display. This one is actually a qHD display, providing a higher resolution than the original Droid X that launched almost a year ago. One thing missing here, the Droid X2 doesn't have 4G LTE built-in, but that's a minor complaint for this otherwise speedy device.

As always, hit us with any questions you have about the Droid X2 and we'll do our best to answer them in our follow-up review! In the meantime, feel free to check out our Motorola Droid X2 gallery.

Get a look at the in-store festivities, which involves a lot of clapping and high-fives, followed by our in-store unboxing of a white iPad 2 with 3G, along with a Smart Cover demo.

You can pick up the iPad 2 from the Apple Store Online.

Unboxing Live 067: Astro Mixamp 5.8 and A30 headphones

In this episode we give you a look at the Astro Mixamp 5.8, the company's new accessory that allows up to four users to enjoy wireless 7.1 surround sound from their gaming console or PC. The cool thing about the Mixamp is that since it uses 5.8 GHz technology (rather than the overcrowded 2.4 GHz space,) you get nice, clear sound. This means that even late at night, you can mute your surround sound system and just have all the sound sent to the headphones - and it'll even do both game sounds as well as chat. Nice stuff!

Zibra Open It

Zibra just announced their new Open It! tool, aimed at helping all of us who open packages with any sort of frustrating regularity. The Open It! offers five methods of busting into those packages, saving yourself a lot of anxiety and injury:

  • Cut It: Long cutting jaws cut quickly through sealed clamshell packaging
  • Snip It: Hardened, precision ground steel blades snip through zip ties and twist ties
  • Slice It: Slices CDs and DVDs and the auto-retract system prevents blade from being exposed when not in use
  • Unscrew It: Removable screwdriver for easy use and convenient storage
  • Pop It: Bottle cap opener is cleverly built into jaws

The best part is that this thing is only $9.99 at places like Wal-Mart, Michaels, OfficeMax, Office Depot and others, which means we pretty much wanna get one immediately. They’re available in green and orange colors.

Unboxing Live 062: DXG USA A80V 1080p camcorder

Cheap handheld camcorders seem to be all the rage these days, so it’s rare that we focus on them unless they have some sort of standout feature set. Heck, the records 720p H.264 video itself. Today, we are focusing on the DXG USA A80V handheld camcorder because we think it has a few features that set it apart from the pack.

The A80V is a 1080p camcorder that records at 30 fps, 1080i at 60fps, and 720p at 60fps. All videos are recorded in H.264 MOV file format, which is perfect for pulling directly off the camcorder and viewing/editing immediately. A lot of similar cameras require a transcode before you can view or play with the files. It’s got a 10 megapixel CMOS sensor, 5x optical zoom, 10x digital zoom, 3-inch touch display, and even an HDMI output (with HDMI cable included.)

You can get the DXG USA A80V for $239 on Amazon.

Unboxing Live 061: Motorola Devour

After all the and phones, Verizon launched the Motorola Devour, and Android messaging phone. We picked up a Devour to give you a look at the device, which certainly isn’t aimed at the high-end smartphone crowd. However, since the Sidekick has pretty much fell off the face of the earth, we thought the Devour would be attractive to that younger crowd that’s into text messaging but doesn’t need an overly expensive data plan. Check out the Motorola Devour in this episode.

Unboxing Live 060: iPhone 4 (shot on an iPhone 4)

Yesterday we gave you our full line-waiting experience video, but we know that some of you just wanna focus on the device itself, so this video is for you. We give you a look at the iPhone 4 as we open it up at the Alderwood Mall Apple Store in Lynnwood, Washington. We give you a look at the phone, compare it to the iPhone 3GS, and give you a look at the iPhone 4 dock and iPhone 4 bumper case as well.
