The iPhone 5S has arrived! While the outer appearance might look quite similar to the iPhone 5, the 5S is a game-changer in one major way: its A7 64-bit processor.
The Nokia Lumia 521 is available from MetroPCS for $99. They are also offering the LTE-enabled LG Optimus F3 with a price tag of $149.
We knew it was coming, but the HTC One Mini has finally landed. Join us as a we take a look at what HTC’s ‘mini’ handset has to offer.
According to the rumor mill, the HTC One Max will not only have a massive display, but also a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM.
Acer has shown off their Liquid S1 Android Jelly Bean smartphone and Iconia W3 Windows 8 tablet at this year’s Computex event.
The Nokia Lumia 521 is available on the Walmart website with a very low price tag. But it has been sold out within an hour.
Samsung has finally come forward to confirm that they are in fact pushing the line between smartphone and tablet with their new Samsung Galaxy Mega line.
The MiiPC, an Android running mini PC, has hit Kickstarter and is becoming popular. But how does it stack up against Ouya?
There are a couple of pretty huge differences, though. First, instead of the tiny Photon 4G, you’ll need to invest in the $89 Hub Burst, a unit that combines a router and modem in one. It plugs into the wall like how most routers would, but you don’t need to run a cable into it.
Windows Phone 8? We don’t need no stinking Windows Phone 8. The i-Mate Windows Phone runs instead on the power of Windows 8 Pro and an Intel Atom processor.
FreedomPop has announced that its “social broadband” features are being expanded, making it possible for users to share and to request to use any unused bandwidth through popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
We’ve put together a list of some of the apps and tweaks that are considered the “best”, and could end up as must-haves for your newly jailbroken device.
HTC is getting ready to announce a couple of new Android smartphones and it looks like we’ve got the inside scoop on all of their pertinent features and specs. Neither one of these devices sounds like it’s going to be a flagship, as that spot is being reserved for the HTC M7, but they are approaching the middle and lower tier of the market with the M4 and G2, respectively.
Looking for a decent unlocked phone that actually has reasonably modern specs? The Kogan Agora is coming to the US for $150 with dual-core power in tow.
Well, they’re doing it again. In addition to offering you free mobile 4G data, FreedomPop is now gearing up to give you free mobile talk and text too.
Yesterday in Rome, Italy, Huawei presented an arsenal of Android products to journalists and bloggers. After some further investigation from Windows Phone Italy, it was discovered that the Huawei Ascend W1 will also be released in Italy as well as Asia, after it’s officially announced at CES 2013.
The surprising thing is that even though the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ starts at a full $200 cheaper than the starting price for the Apple iPad ($299 vs. $499), the specs on paper are actually very, very comparable.
The iPhone has been the center piece for many Chinese knockoffs over the past few years, but as the Chinese smartphone market has evolved, most of the poor-build products have been left behind. These days we are instead greeted with cheap but durable, reasonably spec’d devices.
When it comes to 10-inch tablets, most consumers certainly think of iPad as the most powerful option out there. Sure, there are other high-end 10-inch tablets that are running on Android or Windows 8/RT, but they don’t have the display power of the Retina and probably aren’t as cutting-edge in processing and graphics as the newest 4th generation Apple iPad. This dynamic is now crashing down thanks to the newly announced Samsung Nexus 10.
I still think that the starting price on the Microsoft Surface should have been closer to $299, but in the $499 range, it competes directly against the recently announced fourth-generation iPad rather than the also recently announced iPad Mini. So, how does it compare?
Up until now, it was really hard to call Amazon and Apple direct competitors. Sure, they both had tablets and sold services that were highly integrated into the overall experience. Yes, they both also had books and videos. What set them worlds apart was pricing and specs. This has changed with the introduction of the iPad Mini.
With Windows Phone 8 just around the corner, is Windows Phone 7.x all-but-dead? Actually, no. There have been several reports of new Windows Phone 7.8 devices coming to China and many third world countries in recent times. This makes a lot of sense, actually. Now that the platform is aging, Microsoft could potentially cut down the fees associated with licensing the software and could market it as an alternative to Symbian.
What if you could get an Android ICS tablet for just $59.99? Crazy, but true. The Matrix One is a dirt cheap tablet with very modest hardware.
What about children? No shortage there either. There are smaller handhelds and tablets out there that run Android from a variety of companies. Many of these are carried by retailer Toys R’ Us. Soon though, the big kid’s toy retailer will have its own endorsed tablet- the Tabeo.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is finally here, for real this time. The Note will be available globally starting this month and will come in three different versions: Wifi Only, WiFi plus HSPA+ and a WIFI Plus LTE version- though the third version won’t come until a little later down the road.
There was a time when even the smallest SSD drive could easily fetch you close to a thousand dollars, maybe even more. Today the price has dropped quite a bit, but we still have yet to see that many ‘budget’ flash options either, luckily this is all changing with the 2.5-inch Crucial V4 drive series.
One of the problems with the iPhone and iPad is that there is no expandable memory option. The Kingston Wi-Drive addresses this is a very unique way and it just so happens that you can now get one for up to 54% off.
Working as either a wireless bridge or as an access point, the D-Link DAP-1533 Wireless-N450 MediaBridge does everything that its name implies.
If you like the idea of a tiny, flexible ARM-PC that can run Linux, and even possibly Android, but want more than 500-700MHz of power, there hasn’t been much to choice from- until now. A Korean hardware company called Hardkernel is launching what is probably the first high-end ultra-mini ARM motherboard.
There seems to be an increasing number of devices in recent times that tout themselves as the perfect tablet experience for those that also want a laptop-like productivity experience, Windows Surface included. That being said, Fujitsu seems to do one better, creating a true hybrid tablet/laptop experience that is targeted at the business crowd, and best of all they are offering two different hybrids, the LifeBook T902 and Stylistic Q702.
In a very lengthy, yet compelling read, Gizmondo produced an article that essentially applauds the new Microsoft Surface tablet and welcomes it as a game changer that makes the Air and iPad look obsolete in comparison. The article goes on to state that the system follows the ten design principles that folks like Apple’s Jonathan Ive seem to live by.
The Samsung Galaxy Note, oh what a debate this 5.3-inch Android smablet (smartphone-tablet) has created. Some haters hate it, because, well, they love to hate things. And others love it, mainly because of its beautiful bright display. I’m going to address a few things with this review because in all honesty, we need to evolve the way we use “smart” devices. And there are a lot of underlying issues that people just don’t talk about, or have a clue about. If we’re not using these devices with any sense, then we’re not really going to have the best experience in the long term.
The new iPad is just out the door and yet it hasn’t stopped the iPhone 5 rumors from coming in stronger than ever.
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 7.7 is on its way to the Verizon network, further expanding the range of sizes that the Tab comes in. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 was actually first announced back in September and will feature a 1280×800 Super AMOLED plus display, a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, a 2MP front camera, 3.2MP back camera, and the rear can even shoot 720p video.
Unless you have quite the interest in the wireless industry, it’s easy to get all those acronyms confused. CDMA, GSM, HSDPA, HSPA+, LTE… I guess that’s why they’ve pushed toward simplifying things with “3G” and “4G,” even though the definitions are muddled at best. Well, Qualcomm Atheros is ready to push forward into the next generation, officially announcing the WCN3680 combo module. This supports the “5G” 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard.
