Android phones have finally hit Verizon Wireless. November 6th saw the launch of both the Motorola Droid ($199 after MIR) and the HTC Droid Eris ($99 after MIR) which brought an air of excitement to Verizon; not seen for quite some time. The Motorola Droid brings a huge screen, 5MP camera, Android 2.0, Google Nav and much more to the Verizon Network.
Check out our impression and Motorola Droid Review Roundup.
For the last few weeks I've had the opportunity to use the Dell Studio 14z laptop while I test out Phoenix Technologies new Laptop location technology service called FailSafe. The Dell Studio 14z is one of the most portable full size Dell laptop's to hit the market and starts at $699. The Studio 14z ditches the optical drive to cut the weight down to 4.3 pounds and when combined with the slim design makes for an attractive packaged 14" laptop. You can get the 14z in Black Chainlink, Ruby Red, Midnight Blue, Spring Green and Plum Purple.
Overall the Studio 14z is a good laptop with a few quirks but in the end the extras make up for most of the shortcomings.
The rubberized Samsung Go Netbook first caught my attention when it was released in Europe and the unique form factor still has my attention now that it has hit the American shores.

Brad Linder at Liliputing recently had the opportunity to review the Samsung Go and has provided a full report on the pros and cons of Samsung's design choices.
