Tribit QuietPlus 72 headphones review: Cancelling noise and high price tags

Tribit QuietPlus 72 headphones review: Cancelling noise and high price tags

Wireless headphones have been around for years, but they've taken on increased importance now that phone manufacturers are leaving out the 3.5mm jack. Companies like Sony and Bose have been cranking out great options, but most of those products cost $200 or $300. That money can get you a lot of premium features like active noise cancellation and high fidelity sound — but do you need to spend that much? The Tribit QuietPlus 72 headphones cost just $70 and offer some premium features like ANC and multi-device pairing. However, the construction is lower quality, there are no customization options, and the ANC is merely okay — they don't excel in any one area.

T-Mobile Introduces The LG Optimus T: Android Babysteps

T-Mobile Introduces The LG Optimus T: Android Babysteps

Although the name may be reminiscent of Optimus Prime, this phone might not live up to the most powerful Autobot. Think of the Optimus T as an Android feature phone with the stats of a mid-range device.

It comes packed with the following specs:

  • Android 2.2 FroYo
  • 3.2 inch capacitive touchscreen
  • 3.2MP Camera (no Flash - what is this, 2005?)
  • Wifi (includes Mobile Hotspot Option)
  • GPS
  • Bluetooth

The Optimus T appears to be the exact opposite of what most people are expecting to see from handset manufacturers: a starter phone. Most of you who are reading this blog are probably hoping to see the latest and greatest in Android handsets, but LG is aiming at the users who are on the fence about Android.

Verizon Announces The Low-End LG Enlighten: 800MHz Processor And QWERTY For $80 On September 22

While the lot of us are looking for the most modern, intense hardware we can get our hands on, there are still those who don't need all of the bells and whistles of powerhouse smartphones like the Droid Bionic or Galaxy S II. For the mid-range crowd, Verizon has just announced the LG Enlighten, a Gingerbread handset with a slide-out QWERTY.

214295 VS700-Closed_h4web

The full specs are far from impressive, but it could be perfect for the tweener of the family, someone new to smartphones, or anyone who wants some Android goodness on a budget:

  • 3.2-inch 320x480 display
  • 800MHz processor
  • 3.2MP rear shooter
  • Slide-out QWERTY
  • Android 2.3

Verizon And Samsung Officially Announce Samsung Continuum: Pre-Order November 11 for $200

Verizon And Samsung Officially Announce Samsung Continuum: Pre-Order November 11 for $200

Right on cue, Verizon and Samsung have announced the Samsung Continuum, the newest member of the Galaxy S line of devices. Surprisingly, it looks like all the rumors had everything dead on (a rarity in the Android community). The details:

  • $200 on contract ($300 - $100 mail-in rebate)
  • Preorder begins November 11, goes on sale November 18
  • 3.4" SAMOLED screen up top
  • 1.8" SAMOLED "ticker" screen on the bottom
  • "Grip Sensor" along the bottom that lights up the ticker

Samsung Contiuum

Other than that, the specs are nearly identical to the Fascinate:

  • 1 GHz Hummingbird
  • Android 2.1
  • 5MP Camera with LED
  • WiFi (b/g/n)
  • 8 GB microSD in the box
  • Bing Maps
  • Bing Search

The ticker doesn't have all the capabilities of a normal screen, but from the look and sound of it, it has nearly everything an average user would need - and we're sure that whatever isn't there from the start will soon come from the dev community.

Samsung Announces Alphabet Soup Of Galaxy Smartphones

Samsung Announces Alphabet Soup Of Galaxy Smartphones

Samsung announced today that it will be launching four new Galaxy smartphones together with a completely revamped naming strategy for these and future devices.

This "simplified" system of naming smartphones will group Samsung's upcoming devices into five distinct classes from entry-level phones ("Y") all the way to premium models ("S"). Each class will be represented by a different letter and additional indicators (such as "Pro", "Plus", and "LTE") will be used to identify the "specific functionality" of that device.

The first set of devices to utilize the new nomenclature include the GALAXY W, the GALAXY M Pro, the GALAXY Y, and the GALAXY Y Pro all running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

HTC Aria Coming June 20th To AT&T, Initial Hands-On Impressions Surface

HTC Aria Coming June 20th To AT&T, Initial Hands-On Impressions Surface

Good news, AT&T customers – starting June 20, AT&T will begin selling its first HTC Android device, the Aria. A few days ago, they (accidently?) released a video showing the HTC “Liberty” being tested. At the time, we speculated that it might actually be the HTC Aria we’d heard about before. Turns out we were probably correct, as various news outlets have been receiving the Aria to play around with, and they look to be one and the same.

The phone isn’t quite as high-end as other recent HTC outings on other networks (such as the EVO or Incredible): it offers a 3.2” display running at 480 x 320, as well as a 5 megapixel camera (sans flash).
