Now that Jelly Bean has become the most used Iteration of Android, let’s take a look back at its rise to the top. Overthrowing the Gingerbread king wasn’t easy, but Google had a little help from their friends. If nothing else, Jelly Bean represents a major shift in Android hardware, and how devices are able to support newer versions.
Motorola is taking a chance here, and it’s actually exciting for once. Rather than try to shove a ton of hardware into a slim phone, they’ve gone and made a really good phone anyone would be happy to own.
Sprint is buying Clearwire, and merging with SoftBank. Any time there is a shift in the way a company does business, they often have to change their Terms of Service. While that may seem trivial... to you, it also represents a way out of a contract you’re not happy with — free of charge.
Free?! No early termination fee? That’s right, friends, a change in your Terms of Service often...
Nothing too exciting with a quad core MT6589, but 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage is nice. So is the 5-inch 1080p screen. Still not wowed? How about a price tag that comes in at under $300 (Yuan 1,699)?

Whether as as second tablet for the family or a first for you, the Kindle Fire HD is a great choice. The 7-inch screen is perfect for all use-case scenarios, and is perfect for little hands.
The device is simply too large for traditional one-handed interaction, so Sony has a few tricks up their sleeve. A keyboard that slides to one side of the screen, and a bluetooth device meant to take calls and view text messages.
A catch-all for better photography, SHOULDERPOD can do just about anything you ask of it. If you want to mount it to a tripod, no problem. Ever wish you had a handle for your phone? They’ve got you covered.
If you’re wondering why it’s called QWOP, that’s the runner’s name. Awkward name, awkward game play, but oddly fun. A Play store rating of 4.2 shows early adopters like it, though.
At just over one year old, the device is still very capable. It was never a top-tier device, but it was an HTC flagship for the One lineup. Considering many users are still under contract with the device, it would be a good idea to support it, and create some brand loyalty
