Review: Motorola Oasis Bluetooth Headset

Two areas that really separate high end headsets from the pretenders are comfort and noise cancellation. If you think of some of the contenders in this market segment (Jawbone, Plantronics Voyager Pro, Motorola HX1) pretty much all of them are designed from the ground up to be comfortable, while noise cancellation is analogous to the engine on a shiny new sports car; you don’t see it at first glance, but that’s really the core of the product.

One of the latest Bluetooth Headsets to enter the ring is Motorola’s recently announced Oasis headset. The physical design of the Oasis is fairly close to the Voyager Pro, which is one of my all time favorite headsets. The full review is after the break.

Review: HTC S280 Side Case

The S280 Side Case from HTC is being offered over at the WMExperts.com Accessory Store for $19.95. The unique design makes the case stand out amongst the other side cases the Store offers.

The S280 is cut to fit a wide range of HTC devices including the Tilt2/Touch Pro 2, Imagio, Snap, Pure and any other similarly sized Windows Phones. Curious how design meets functionality, we took the S280 out for a test drive with the AT&T Tilt2.

Ease on past the break to see what type of impression this HTC Case left with us.

We took SureCop out for a test drive recently and just follow the break to see how it measured up.

Review: Samsung Hartmann Luxury Leather Case

While Samsung has built a reputation for quality electronics, they also offer some decent cases for your Windows Phones. The Hartmann Luxury Leather Case is a quality built, uniquely designed case for the Samsung Jack. It will also accommodate the Sprint Snap and Verizon Ozone.

What sets the Hartmann case apart from others is that lack of a case flap. It's more of a horizontal pouch than case. I have reservations about how secure the Samsung Jack would ride in the case.

Ease on past the break to see how well the Samsung Hartmann Luxury Leather Case measured up.

Review: AddressBookOne

Now that AddressBookOne has launched, giving users the ability to pool together contacts from multiple sources to make management of contacts easier, we decided to take it out for a test drive. We found it to be an interesting service with room for improvement. However, Toffa International Limited, developers of AddressBookOne, have built a nice foundation.

Follow the break for more on AddressBookOne.

OtterBox Defender Case for HTC HD2

The HTC HD2 will forever hold a special place in Windows Mobile lore. As one of the best pieces of hardware in the pre Windows Phone 7 era, there are a lot of people that view the HD2 as a way of extending the life of what many consider a superior platform (Windows Mobile 6.5).

To make your device last as long as possible, you want to get a high quality case that is going to take the abuse for your phone. Nobody makes rugged, usable cases like OtterBox. The OtterBox Defender Case for the HD2 not only meets the high standard the OtterBox is held to, it exceeds them.

Review: Overboard Waterproof Case

On the heals of reviewing the Wavetooth waterproof Bluetooth headset, we thought we would turn our sights towards waterproof cases for your Windows Phone. Overboard offers a waterproof case over at the WMExperts.com Store that fits a wide assortment of Windows Phones.

We decided to take a look at the Overboard Case with the HTC Tilt2. As customary, just follow the break to see if the Overboard left us high and dry or sopping wet.

Marketplace Spotlight: BBC News

BBC News is an application being offered over at the Marketplace that is the product of one developer's frustration. Lawrence Gripper, the apps developer, states "I got really annoyed with all these iPhone and android users having their nice little news applications so I wrote one."

BBC News, as the name implies, allows you to browse the headlines from BBC News. The $2.99 app saves the articles and images locally to help speed things up. The interface is straight forward and simple in that all you have to do is tap a headline and the full story loads.

From the menu, you can filter stories by region (worldwide stories, UK, N. Ireland, Scotland, etc.) or topic (sports, politics, business, and health). Pages loaded promptly and I experienced no glitches, crashes or bugs in using the news app. BBC News reminded me of AP Mobile but focused on stories generated through BBC.

You have to admire the ingenuity of Lawrence Gripper for seeing a need and taking initiative to develop an app to meet those needs. If you find yourself needing to stay in tune with BBC headlines, BBC News is well worth considering. You can pick up a copy at the Marketplace and for a video demo of BBC News, just follow the break.

Review: Wavetooth IPX8 BT headset

 

Water can be public enemy number one for Windows Phones, Bluetooth headsets and just about any electronic device. You can find plenty of waterproof bags for your Windows Phones but Bluetooth headsets aren't too effective when stowed away in a waterproof bag. Enter the Wavetooth IPX8 waterproof Bluetooth headset which is reportedly the first waterproof Bluetooth headset.  We've seen water resistant headsets, like the Samsung WEP-430, but I can't remember a water proof headset.

The creation of Hong Kong inventor John Mak, the Wavetooth allows you to enjoy being around the water and stay connected to your Windows Phone.  We've had a review unit for about a week now so ease on past the break to see how well this waterproof headset performed.
