Giveaway: AT&T Unite Pro by NETGEAR (with service!)

Giveaway: AT&T Unite Pro by NETGEAR (with service!)

As I mentioned in earlier posts, I’m headed to SXSW next week, and I’m really excited — and anticipating being super busy. In my world, that means being wired (wirelessly!) from anywhere and everywhere I can be. For anyone who is all about being digitally connected, whether for work or play (or a combo of both!) — access to the Internet is the most essential travel item. Maybe even more essential than dry shampoo. (No, really. It probably is.) Whether you’re at an event like SXSW or on a road trip, at a temporary worksite, in a weekend cabin, at the park, or working from the back of a taxi (yes, I’ve done that too! not for the faint of heart) — there are times when Wi-Fi access is essential, and you don’t want to be limited to...

Giveaway: Samsung Galaxy S II for AT&T

Giveaway: Samsung Galaxy S II for AT&T

I’ve heard about the Samsung Galaxy S II for a while before it arrived at my doorstep –  and it totally lived up to its much-fabled rep. The Galaxy S II has a a rich screen and tons of features that I appreciate – most importantly, a great battery life. The nitty gritty: It’s  Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 1.2 GHz Samsung Exynos processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. It also has a 8 megapixel camera  LED flash and a 2 MP front camera for video chatting and yet is still super thin. As we get closer to mom/grad/dad season, I’m doing fun gift-giving giveaway ideas throughout my various sites – this particular one is a great idea for your mom for mother’s day, don’t you think? One reader will win one for...

Giveaway: AT&T HTC Status

Giveaway: AT&T HTC Status

I’ve not often been tempted by the android world for the same reason I have no desire to own an iPhone -I have an irrational fear of the touch screen. I’m not alone – for many of us of the BlackBerry generation (of which I still belong), a quality keyboard is the only feature that truly matters. I write hundreds of emails a day from my phone – I need to be able to use it as a mini computer. I plan to live forever, with my thumbs blazing, and finally, Android is giving me that option. The HTC Status is a new breath-through: And, indeed, I like it! That’s not the only thing that makes this phone innovative – it’s also the first device with a Facebook share button. The HTC Status, available exclusively to AT&T customers,...

Giveaway and Review: AT&T HP Veer 4G Smart Phone

Giveaway and Review: AT&T HP Veer 4G Smart Phone

With my never-ending affection for giveaways, it felt wrong to let the first days of Alytude’s new home go by without a fun product to share. And one of my favorite giveaways to do — despite my beauty obsession – are gadgets. I was at an event a few years ago, and was gifted the original Palm Pixi — at the time, it was on Sprint, and despite being an avowed BlackBerry girl, I was loving the form and style of it. However, at the time, there were things I *didn’t like — I didn’t like webOS and I didn’t like the lack of Wi-Fi (stone age, I know). Well, fast forward to the here and now, and welcome to the  HP Veer — now it’s on AT&T, and I believe it may be the first brand-spanking-new phone out of the...
