Report CES 2010 - The BlackBerry Torch 9800 retail packaging is small, and as always for BlackBerry, it is matte black.

We find about four buttons and an optical joystick underneath the touchscreen. When we slide the phone open, we also see a QWERTY-keyboard next to the touchscreen.

HTC Desire HD Smartphone review - The HTC Desire HD Smartphone comes in a slim packaging with a large image of the phone itself on the front. As soon as we open the packaging, the HTC Desire HD can be picked up immediately. The HTC Desire HD Smartphone looks impressive, it is big but it also has a very sleek design. The front of the phone has a large touchscreen of 4.3 inches, with a few touch keys underneath it. The back of the HTC Desire HD Smartphone is made out of one piece, just like the HTC Legend, although it does have a couple of flaps and a cut-away near the flash made of a different material which makes the HTC mobile phone look a bit rough.
Canon PowerShot S95 digital camera review : Last year, Canon launched the PowerShot S90, a digital camera that represented a new road in Canon’s strategy. A camera which did not have Megapixels as its most important feature, and was even downgraded on paper in terms of hard specifications, but at the same time was advanced in image quality. It was a camera that was received wholeheartedly and was highly praised. The Canon PowerShot S95, successor to the S90, follows the same road that Canon took with the S90. Luckily, the amount of pixels is still the same, ten Megapixels, and the size of the sensor has also remained unchanged. It is a compact camera that again focuses on image quality, which is a good development.

There must be someone in that marketing department that had a side job next to their study that was solely comprised of inventing silly names? Well, that person is working for several different cell phone manufacturers or there are several people that meet that profile. Take for example the following rumor: the existence of the HTC Supersonic smartphone. Supersonic? I thought that that name had disappeared with the disappearance of the Concord flights! The HTC Supersonic is supposed to be the full successor of the HTC HD2 smartphone. Why not just call that smartphone the HTC HD3? We aren’t too sure yet if it will be called HTC Supersonic of HTC HD3.
