Leaked: Mid-Range HTC M4 and Entry-Level HTC G2 Android Smartphones

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.

iPhone 5 Clone for $200

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.

Samsung Nexus 10 versus Apple iPad: Which is right for you?

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.

Kindle Fire HD versus iPad Mini: Which is Right for You?

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.

View S606- Another Low Cost Windows Phone 7.x Device

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.

Fujitsu Reveals Q702 Hybrid Tablet And Lifebook Convertible Laptop

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.

Is Microsoft’s Surface Tablet A MacBook Air And iPad Killer?

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.

Samsung Galaxy Note Smablet Review

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.

Qualcomm WCN3680 Combo Chip Offers “5G” Connectivity

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.
