htc_one_series

After weeks of seemingly endless waiting for some official news from HTC regarding the One series smartphones, we have finally been put to ease. Well, at least some of us have, because the One-branded... smartphone trio has an official release date next to its name, but, so far, it’s only for “some” European countries.

The HTC One X, S, and V will be made available for sale starting April 2...

google tablet online store

It’s no longer a secret that Google is planning to seriously get in the tablet business this year, by releasing at least one co-branded device in collaboration with Asus. However, recent reports... indicate that Google is actually thinking bigger than that and will most likely launch its own online store.

knight ridder future tablet

It’s hard to believe that someone envisioned tablet PCs 18 years ago, but a dusty video clip from 1994 shows us that there were, in fact, technology visionaries before Steve Jobs (insert “ironic... grin” here).

Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, and Motorola Xoom users have all been waiting for Android 4.0.4 updates for a while, but now they can finally (prepare to) rejoice. Yes, I said prepare to rejoice, because,... for the time being, only a handful of these devices have receive the update to the latest flavor of Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

The OTA (0ver-the-air) updates reportedly started yesterday, but for s...

Kindle Fire

While, about a year ago, it was hard to conceive that anyone could threaten iPad’s dominance over the tablet market anytime soon, we are now faced with what could be called the “Amazon... offensive”.

The Kindle Fire has been by far the most surprising gadget of 2011, and is currently the second most popular tablet in the world, closing in on iPad’s leading spot as we speak...

the-future-of-interfacing-touch-interface-Android

Touchscreen interaction with electronic devices is something that I, for one, could only dream about back in the day (yeah, I’m so old that I remember the time when “dumbphones”... were cool). Yet soon enough, touchscreens might become obsolete, as more and more companies are competing to come up with new, innovative ways to capture the public’s attention.
