HTC Jetstream review. It has been quite some time since the HTC Jetstream is for sale(also known as HTC Puccini) so we decided it is high time to take a closer look at this interesting Android v3.1 Honeycomb tablet.
HTC Jetstream has a very fast Qualcomm MSM8260 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. This really is one very capable processor. Together with the 1GB of RAM the Jetstream is quick and responsive in any situation, no matter how heavy the multitasking load is.

Mercedes E-Class convertible


Mercedes E-Class cabriolet review. Today at For consumers blog we are going to take a closer look at one of the best 'summer cars'. The E-Class convertible is stylish 4-seater which offers great comfort and plenty of new technological features.
Mercedes E-Class cabriolet has a soft roof which makes it best for warm seasons. But in case this is the only car you will use the whole year the E-class cabrio will do the job just fine. The noise levels are dropped to an absolute minimum for a cabriolet and the thermal isolation is also very good. No raindrops will reach the inside of the car during the autumn rains. Actually this fabric roof is one of the best on the market today.
Mercedes E-Class cabriolet is not only comfortable but also a very dynamic vehicle. The powerful petrol engines will definitely put a smile on any driver face. The E-class cabrio also achieves a very reasonable fuel consumption.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX10V camera review
Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX10V review

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX10V review. Some time ago we reviewed the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9V and we liked it a lot. Actually it was one of the best point and shoot digital cameras we've come upon.
Now there is a new model which claims to be even better, so lets take a closer look at the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX10V digital camera.

Main features
The DSC-HX10V has 1/2.3-inch Super HAD CCD image sensor and 18.2 million effective pixels. With the huge 16x optical zoom you won't have to worry about distance. That's one of the highest ever zoom lenses inserted in a compact camera. This zoom is just amazing for such a small device. And if this is not enough you can always try the 32x digital zoom.
Of course you can zoom in and out until recording your FULL HD videos and not worry about the sound of the zoom motor cause it is almost completely silent in the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX10V.
There is only one thing that we will tell you about the shooting modes in Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX10V - it has them all and 3D sweep panoramas and shooting in low light conditions are coming out more than fine with this camera.
The image processing is provided by the Sony's BIONZ image processing system which converts the raw image data from a CCD or CMOS image sensor into the chosen format.
And of course the DSC-HX10V has Sony G Lens which will provide the best brightness for your photos with the amazing light gathering capability of this camera.
The 1080p FULL HD videos recorded with the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX10V come out great and have maximum resolution of 1,920 x 1,080/50i.

Samsung WB690 digital camera
Samsung WB690 also has a huge 3.0-inch display for viewing your photos and videos.
No matter the high specs Samsung WB690 is not an expensive camera and that is why it has become very popular. User ratings are also very positive about the WB690.
Another great feature of the Samsung WB690 is the 720p HD video recording. I know most new cameras offer this feature but not all of them has the low price tag of the WB690.
The high quality Schneider-Kreuznach 24mm ultra wide lens will help you get the best shot in any position.
Samsung WB690 also has an HDMI out so you can easily connect it to your TV and enjoy your photos and videos on the big screen.

A closer look at the powerful SUV BMW X6 M


2012 BMW X6 M review. Today we are going to take a look at the fastest production SUV on the market today. Probably many of you would say that isn't true claiming that Porsche or some other brand has something better than that but the truth is that the X6 is the real speed and handling king among supersport SUVs.
The 2012 BMW X6 M has aggressive styling and that is of course for a reason, this is not an ordinary SUV after all.
Under the hood a there is a 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 with around 555hp. That is quite a lot but remember the X6 M is a pretty heavy vehicle.

2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ review

2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ test drive and review

Chevrolet Sonic LTZ test drive and review. Today we are going to take a look at this small car that seems to be a real best seller recently. Probably even Chevrolet didn't expect that their Sonic will turn into such a success.
In other locations different from North American, Canadian, Mexican, Chilean, Japanese, Israeli, Middle East and South African markets this vehicle is also known as Chevrolet Aveo.
Actually this is the second generation Sonic.
The North American-spec Sonic is available as a 4-door sedan or five-door hatchback. It comes with a 1.8-liter inline-four producing 101 kW (135 hp) and 169 N·m (125 lb·ft) torque, or a 1.4-liter turbo inline-four producing 103 kW (138 hp) and 201 N·m (148 lb·ft) torque. The 1.8-liter engine has a timing belt; the 1.4L turbo engine uses a timing chain to drive the camshafts. The 1.8-liter inline-four is mated to a standard five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, while the 1.4-liter turbo has a six-speed manual transmission. On August 2, 2011, the Sonic had entered production at Orion Assembly, with the first cars arriving at dealerships in October.

2012 Audi A4 test drive and review. Today we are going to take a look at one of the most popular compact sedans in the world. The latest generation Audi A4 has aggressive styling with elegant exterior lines and one of the best interiors in class.

The new Audi A4 is offered with a wide variety of petrol and diesel engines. Of course the diesel choices will reach higher sales in Europe where Audi (VW Group) is popular with some of the best diesel engines. These engines can be coupled with either six speed manual transmission or with the automatic dual-clutch DSG gearbox. Of course the new A4 can be ordered with the all-wheel drive Quattro system which is good in harsh conditions but will slightly decrease fuel economy.
