Apple iPod Nano 7G

Apple iPod Nano 7G review

Having sold something like 350 million iPods in the last decade, Apple has quite sensibly stuck to pretty much the same basic designs for most of the iPod range. The glaring exception to that rule is the ever-changing, shape-shifing iPod Nano. This is the seventh version of the Nano in seven years, and in that time it’s …

Sony: Walkman, meet Android

Sony has launched an Android-based Walkman, the F800, with which it hopes to topple the supremacy Apple's iPod Touch holds in the PMP market. Good luck. The Sony Walkman F800 boasts a 3.5in display and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, providing access to Google Play and its wide array of apps and games. It'll come in 8GB …

Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 Android media player

Review I reviewed Samsung’s first Android media player just over a year ago and frankly thought it was awful. I'm sure I wasn't alone. Undaunted, Samsung tried again with a new device packing a larger screen, faster CPU and bigger battery but only costing £40 more. Samsung YP-G70CW Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 Second listen: Samsung's Galaxy …

August DTV700B portable Freeview TV and DVR

Review The portable screen market is now dominated by compact DVD players, smartphones and tablets, so if you want a teeny telly for watching live programmes on the go, there isn’t a massive choice. One contender is the DTV700B, a newly upgraded version of August’s low-cost 7in portable digital TV. August DTV700B portable Freeview TV …

Colorfly Pocket Hi-Fi C4 high resolution audio player

Colorfly Pocket Hi-Fi C4

Review The true audiophile is likely to have many questions concerning the Colorfly Pocket Hi-Fi, but chief among them is likely to be ‘How f*%&ing much??!?’ At £549 this Chinese-made high fidelity portable music player is nobody’s idea of a bargain, but if you’re one of those brave souls who still cares about sound quality, who …

Sony NWZ-A866

Sony Walkman NWZ-A866

Review Rumours that Apple would kill the iPod may have been far from the mark, but it doesn't stop rival companies wrestling for their own portion of the portable music player pie, despite smartphones eroding this market. Indeed, Sony still knocks out respectable PMPs and its latest A-series Walkmans are slick, lightweight models with …

Apple to unveil white iPod Touch alongside iPhone 5

With the hype over the next-gen iPhone in full swing, all talk of an iPod Touch refresh has been pushed to the side. Well, no longer. According to insiders, the new iPod Touch will be reissued next month with a white body. The information comes by way of MacRumours, which reckons that, apart from the colour difference, a …

Sony flicks to B-side with Walkman refresh

Sony has modified its MP3 player collection, with this year's refresh of Walkman Music Clips. Over the past year, Sony has seen its fair share of transformation. The same can't quite be said for its Walkman range. The Sony Walkman NWZ-B160 is almost identical to last year's NWZ-B150 - what's new is a nanoscale size reduction …

Cowon D3 Plenue

Cowon D3 Plenue Android media player

Review Like it or loathe it the Apple iPod Touch continues to maintain its position as the default choice for punters after a touchscreen media player. The recent arrival of the Archos 43 came close to tipping it off its perch but the cost-saving resistive screen let it down and the least said about Samsung's Galaxy 50 Player the …

Archos 43

Archos 43 16GB Android PMP

Review Archos has embraced Android with the fervour of a kid in a sweet shop and is in the process of releasing a range of devices with screen sizes ranging from 2.8in - called the 28 - to 10.1in - called, yes you guessed it, the 101, all running Google's mobile OS. Archos 43 Archos' 43: Android tablet or PMP? The 28 and 32 are …

Samsung launches 'world's first' Android MP3 player

CES 2011 Samsung has announced the launch of its latest PMP - apparently the world's first Android powered MP3 player, according to the company, which appears to have missed Archos' Google OS offerings. The Samsung Galaxy Player 50 has a 3.2in touchscreen, 2Mp camera and comes with either 8GB or 16GB of storage, expandable using Micro …

Ten... sub-£150 PMPs

Product Round-up Budget PMPs are the missing link between a high-end video job and a standard MP3 player. With modern devices so advanced, some would class these PMPs as cell-phones without the option to call, a view I generally shared. However, without the distraction of ringtones and txt msgs, they have space to focus on getting the rest …

Sony Ericsson Zylo

Sony Ericsson Zylo

Review The world + dog may be knocking out smartphones like there's no tomorrow but that's not to say the feature phones is dead and buried. The Zylo handset from Sony Ericsson would, once upon a time, have had a W code to show it sat in the Walkman range, but the days of simple delineation between music (Walkman) and camera (Cybershot …

Apple iPod Nano 6G

Review Apple can’t seem to make up its mind about the iPod Nano. The new model that Steve Jobs unveiled recently is the 6th generation version of the Nano, and it seems as though each new generation has undergone a fairly major redesign. In fact, I’ve seen something similar before in the 3rd generation ‘phat’ Nano, which also had a …

Archos 7 Android tablet

Review Despite the iPad being upon us and plenty of Windows 7 and Android tablets on the horizon – not to mention whatever HP's tablet plans are for webOS – the question: "What's a tablet for?" remains a question without a definitive answer.
