ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro tablet lets you run both Android and Win7

ViewPad10pro

The ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro runs both Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Windows 7. It’s a shame they didn’t get Honeycomb under the hood of this 10.1-inch slate, but at least you have Google and Microsoft working together under the same framework. To make things more interesting, this is one of the first tablets to be powered by an Intel Atom processor.

Samsung Galaxy Xcover is built to withstand fire and water

samsung-galaxy-xcover-1

You could sink it in water and leave it there for half an hour, drop it on the ground, burry it in sand and throw it in a fire pit. The Samsung Galaxy Xcover is resistant to almost any disaster you could throw its way, and being the first Android powered device to carry IP67 certification is kinda neat too.

Samsung Galaxy S II 4G Android Smartphone Review

samsung-galaxys2-02

In the case of the Galaxy S II, the specs have pretty much been bumped up across the board. This starts with the positively gorgeous 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. All of the original Galaxy S phones had the standard 4.0-inch screen. I don’t need to tell you that this screen is easily the most amazing one you’ve ever seen on a smartphone.

HTC EVO 3D ships with Sprint, heading to Europe too

htc-evo-3d-0

All it takes is a tipping point. The iPhone represented a tipping point for touchscreen smartphones for regular consumers. The iPad represented a tipping point for the popularity of tablets. And perhaps the Nintendo 3DS (despite being bad for kids) represents the tipping point for glasses-free stereoscopic 3D. Joining the fray is the HTC EVO 3D, which starting shipping with Sprint in the United States earlier this week.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play review: The Android PlayStation phone

xperia-play-07

I play a lot of games on my smartphone. The trouble is that a smartphone was never really designed for serious video game playing, and that’s where the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is supposed to come into the picture. It’s PlayStation certified and is purpose-built to give gamers what they want while still doing the usual Android smartphone thing too.

I have the Xperia Play in hand and will have that review posted soon, but there’s also the new Xperia ray and Xperia active coming down the chute too.

android-wifi-tokens

Uh oh. There’s a certain price that you have to pay for convenience and, in this case, it looks like that price is severely reduced security. It turns out that almost all the Android phones and tablets out there are vulnerable to a very easy attack.

4.3-inch Samsung Galaxy S II Pre-orders Break 3 Million Units

samsung-galaxy-s2

Let’s put this into perspective. The first Galaxy S sold over 10 million units last year. That’s a pretty huge success. If you consider that there are already three million pre-orders on the Galaxy S II you’ve got to wonder how many sales will happen that aren’t pre-orders.  I think the whole Super AMOLED display is a huge factor for setting Samsung’s Android offerings apart from the HTCs and Motorolas of the world.

REVIEW: Google Nexus S Smartphone (850/1900 Version)

googlenexuss-1

The original Google Nexus One was a statement phone. It was meant to be the Google Phone, getting first dibs on any Android updates and providing users with a pure “vanilla” experience. No carrier branding, no custom skins. The Nexus S is the second generation of that idea and now it’s available for a few more people. That’s because they’ve got the tri-band HSPA (850/1900/2100) version in the wild.

Samsung Nexus S 4G Offers Pure Google Experience to Sprint

sprint-nexus-s-4g

The official Google phone is now rocking some 4G connectivity… depending on your exact definition of what it means to have 4G. The Google Nexus S has been available since December of last year, but the American version only played friendly with T-Mobile’s bands. That’s changed, since Sprint has picked up its own version in the form of the Samsung Nexus S 4G.

Google Android Now Supports Adobe Flash 10.2

flash-10.2

Just about every manufacturer came out with an Android device at CES, they would quickly point out that their product offering could support Flash 10.1. Naturally, this is a direct pot shot at Apple and it seems that Google is stepping up its flashiness once more with support for Flash 10.2.

Samsung Galaxy Player in Four and Five-Inch Flavors for US Market

samsung-galaxy-player-4-51

Considering how much we use our smartphones these days, I’m totally less inclined to get a standalone media player. Then again, something like the iPod touch really is just an iPhone without the phone part. The Samsung Galaxy Player is much the same and it’s almost ready for market.
