nexus-7-overclocked

The Nexus 7 got a slightly weaker version of the Tegra 3 SoC, clocked at 1.2 GHz, compared to say the one in the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity, which reaches 1.6 GHz, or the one in the HTC One... X, which reaches 1.5 GHz. But that didn’t stop kernel modders from cranking up the CPU of the Nexus 7 up to 1.64 GHz. So now, your Nexus 7 can become the fastest Tegra 3 device on the market, and...

HTC’s financial results haven’t been kind to them lately, and neither has the media. All of HTC’s problems have been documented extensively lately, which, in turn leads to... shareholders losing trust in the company’s ability to recover. However, this is the sort of thing a public tech company should expect.

Financial dry spells never happen suddenly, even i...

According to IDC, Android and iOS now represent 85% of the 152 million smartphones sold in Q2 2012, globally. But while the iPhone kept growing in raw numbers, it... couldn’t keep up with Android, and its market share slipped from 18.8% to 16.9%.  The iPhone has always been around 20% market share or lower globally, and with the upcoming iPhone coming out s...

RIM put itself in a terrible position in the market in the past couple of years, by not listening to all the signs that the market is shifting to touchscreen phones. Not only RIM still doesn’t... know how to make a good touchscreen, but its current gen OS is completely inadequate for the touch screen era.

RIM planned to launch the QNX-based OS for smartphones, called BB10, at the end of this ye...

When the Crysis FPS game came out on the PC in 2007, it pushed the boundaries of what gaming graphics should look like. The “Can it run Crysis?” catchphrase became an Internet meme,... a question asked whenever a new CPU or GPU is announced.

ARM hardware has been evolving at an amazing pace, with the performance of mobile GPUs doubling every 12 months. Low-power ARM chips are ve...

lawsuit

The lawsuit between Oracle and Google is not yet over, and Judge Alsup orders the two parties to disclose if they paid bloggers or journalists to cover the trial. This may prove important in... the next trial, considering that Oracle is planning to appeal Judge Alsup’s verdict.

Here’s the text of the order:

The Court is concerned that the parties and/or counsel here...

Nexus-7-8GB-650x304

It seems the Nexus 7 is such a hot product that Google and Asus can barely keep making it before it sells out. Soon after it launched, the 16GB version sold out, and was unavailable for two... weeks. That was surprising considering it was the more expensive and not-so-promoted version, compared to the $199 8GB Nexus 7 model. But maybe people wanted to be cautious in regard to the available...

xperia-mint-1-635x358

While I think Sony has some of the best smartphone designs in the market right now, and I hope that it’s one of the companies that will make a Nexus phone this... fall, so far Sony has always been at least a few months behind the competition in terms of hardware specs.

I’m still not convinced that the upcoming Sony Xperia Mint will manage to catch up...

Both Apple and Google have over half a million apps in their app stores right now, so as you can imagine, it can be very difficult to reach the top rankings in those stores, when you have so... many other apps to  compete with – not just from your own category but also apps that are completely unrelated as well, because there’s only so much space at the top.

RIM made an Andr...
