Sauron, in J.R.R. Tolkien’s famous novels, created
“One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.”
Best Buy seems to be creating something that does something similar to the One Ring, except the “in the darkness bind them” part. But, instead of ruling over, finding, and bringing together all rings, Best Buy’s creation is one for the cloud.
Just yesterday, Best Buy officially launched its Music Cloud service. It is accessible from all major mobile platforms–Android (the greatest, of course), iOS, and BlackBerry. It is also accessible to Windows and Mac [...]
Looks like Android tablet followers are going to have to think a bit harder, as it is looking likelier each day that Lenovo’s Android Honeycomb powered 10.1 tablet is going to come on sale soon. Whenever stores start to receive their SKU’s and info from the manufacturers, actually releasing the product isn’t too far behind. While Lenovo hasn’t revealed an actual release date to us yet, we do know that their K1 tablet received FCC certification back in May.
According to the powerhouse blog Engadget, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 tablet is likely to hit OfficeMax stores very soon. In our opinion, the more the merrier. While some manufacturers like Acer [...]
On a tablet or smartphone, what’s more important than the display you look at and interact with? Very little, arguably. Of course, all things have to work magically, in concert, to achieve a desired experience. Still, screens are what you look at, and as such, are of paramount importance. The world’s first Android Honeycomb tablet, the Motorola Xoom, was released to great fanfare, and sales didn’t take off. Was it the outrageous initial price tag? Was it the beta-build of Honeycomb? Either way, the fine digital display mavens over at DisplayMate have done their due diligence, and have recently performed a thorough comparison of the displays on the Motorola Xoom and [...]

The Optimus 2X / G2X / LG P999 (WIND) is one heck of an Android phone. [...]

A Gameloft original, N.O.V.A. 2 HD, is an exciting game, and it’s available in the Android Market now. It’s a very Halo-esque gaming experience, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and we think you will find it fun and intensely addictive.
Thankfully, it’s just landed in the Android Market, and for the reasonable price of $6.99.
Come on guys, that’s almost the same price it costs to rent a movie or two, and we think it’s a decent price considering how many hours of fun you can have with this game. Stunning visuals, fast-paced action, and intuitive controls – what’s not to like?
N.O.V.A 2 HD is an [...]
For a time, Apple was the one of the smartphone world’s darlings. Tough, sturdy, seemingly impenetrable, unique, well-designed. In fact, think of any “wow” adjective, and that has most likely been used to describe Apple already. For a time.
Then came Android, and Apple’s house of glass started to crack, with some parts already shattered.
There’s only one precise word to describe Android’s growth: rapid. It’s precisely the rapidity that makes Apple squirm restlessly. Four hundred thousand (400,000) daily activations of Android devices as of May this year is, to put it mildly, a feat. Thirty six million Android [...]

HTC’s AT&T version of its “Facebook phone,” the HTC ChaCha, has been spotted on a leaked photo showing a face slightly altered from the one that HTC unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in February this year. Pocketnow was tipped with the leak photo and was quick to note that only very little cosmetic changes have been made.
The AT&T version of the HTC ChaCha looks very much similar to the global version, and presumably, will also have the same hardware. Folks are hoping that it will also have the faster 800-MHz processor that replaced the 600-MHz processor of the HTC ChaCha version already launched in the U.K. and elsewhere.
