Nokia E7 Vs HTC Desire Z | Video Comparison

Check out this short video comparison of the Nokia E7 and the HTC Desire Z. Both devices feature a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard using two completely unique mechanisms. I personally prefer the slide and tilt mechanism of the Nokia E7 as it also provides a better viewing angle of the screen. But what do you think? Check out the video after the break and share your thoughts in the comments.

Nokia N8 Vs The Google Nexus S Gameplay Comparison | Need For Speed Shift

This gaming comparison video puts the Nokia N8 up against Google’s Nexus S in a battle to see which performs best at Need For Speed Shift. The latter sports a 4″ (480 x 800 pixels), Super AMOLED display compared to the Nokia N8‘s 3.5″ (360 x 640 pixels) nHD AMOLED. I must say the colours seem much more vibrant on the Google Nexus S. Check out the video after the break.
