charging

 

The Samsung leaks just won’t stop these days. It seems Samsung may launch the Galaxy S3 with its own proprietary wireless charging station. The smartphone will not even need... to touch the charger, as it can charge from a distance of 1-2 meters. That seems pretty futuristic, if you ask me, considering that only a few years ago wireless charging was more of a science lab experi...

humble bundle 2

 

It seems that the Humble Bundle for Android 1 did so well, that the team behind it is revving up for a sequel, and this time, with games that are available for Android, as well,... all 5 of them. The games are as follows:

Swords & Soldiers Canabalt Zen Bound 2 Cogs Avadon

The way this project works is that you can donate whatever amount you want – the minimum i...

samsung_exynos_dual_core_processor

We’ve known about the Exynos 5250 for a while now, thanks to other rumors. As such, none of the specs leaked from the slideshow captured by SemiAccurate are breaking news, but it’s... certainly nice to get confirmation, not just for the Cortex A15 CPU, but also for the Mali T604 MP4 GPU and the LPDDR3 1600 MHz RAM that this chip supports.

The Exynos 5 will have a dual-core 2 G...

samsung-galaxy-note

The manufacturers have been right to push for larger screens, because it seems that’s exactly what people want. Of course, part of this is probably because some people have already bought... some large screens, and only then the others noticed how nice the larger screen is, so then they wanted one, too.

This recent survey says that 90% of smartphone owners want their next phone to hav...

transformer-prima-ipad-2

The new iPad (3rd generation) has just been launched, and it’s time to look at how competitive it is to one of the most expected upcoming Android tablets – the Asus Transformer Pad... Infinity 700 (Asus product naming is getting a little out of hand here; it shouldn’t take a full sentence to call a product by its name). The Transformer Pad Infinity will also be a high-resolutio...

Qualcomm-S4 (1)

[Updated with TI’s input on the OMAP 4460]

Nobody seems to have a perfect launch in the chip industry. Sometimes they get it right, sometimes they don’t. Their only consolation... is that their competitors can have the same problem. We’ve been upset with Nvidia for delaying, for months at a time, both the Tegra 2 and Tegra 3 chips, but the others have had and have delays, too...

apple-ipad-3

“Quad core tablet”, “four times the graphics performance of Tegra 3″, “the second coming of Jesus Christ – again”, and of course all the usual “amazing,... spectacular, magical and all the other attributes we’ve heard before about any new Apple device, appeared once again in the Apple media a couple of days ago. Except many of those are not exactly true R...

asus-transformer-jellybean-android-5.0

Asus has just said that its close partnership with Google will lead it to become the first company to come out with “Android 5.0 JellyBean”, most likely with a tablet. In my opinion... this makes almost perfect sense, and I’m glad that it’s happening. Why “almost”? Because I’d also want this tablet to have a Cortex A15 chip inside it. But going by the rumo...

poweramp

I remember when PowerAMP first came out. It was still in the days when most Android apps had a design that looked like it was made for Android 1.5. Then came PowerAMP, which besides being the... most advanced music player at the time, was also by far the best looking app in the whole Market. Few other apps or games had that level of polish back then. Since it quickly became popular, I’d...

Motorola-Mobility-and-google-logo_610x458

At MWC, Alain Mutricy, Motorola’s senior vice president of portfolio and product management said that Motorola will not have a shift in strategy once they get acquired by Google:

“I... don’t see a very short term, complete change of the product direction,” he said. “I think that we have a business to run, and therefore I think that there is continuity to be expected for 2012...
