With most people talking about which high-end Android phone to get for the holidays, let’s break the mold for a bit and expand our options.

One of the reasons why people invest in tablets is to curl up with their device at the end of the day and enjoy some reading. Of course, lugging around a 10-inch tablet isn’t exactly very comfortable, nor is it very natural to look at. Seven-inch tablets, on the other hand, are a whole lot more subtle and can fit into bags and jacket pockets far more easily.
Amazon’s latest tablet, the Kindle Fire HD, not only lets you enjoy a good read before bed but also lets you indulge in a bit of movie watching, audio listening, and Web browsing. If you have an Amazon Prime membership and want to get the most out of it, the Kindle Fire HD is the best device that can [...]
Though Steve Jobs is famously known to have disliked the idea of 7-inch tablets, you can’t deny that there is a market for them. A 7-incher, such as the Google Nexus 7 (made by ASUS), is a whole lot more portable than larger 10-inch tablets and provides the same ebook reading and multimedia consumption experience as larger tablets do. It can easily fit in your hand, in your jacket pocket, and in your bag without your looking awkward in public.
Naturally, Apple doesn’t want to be left out of that market. It has released the iPad mini, a tablet that you can hold with one hand and that can give you the usefulness of an iPad.
How does this Apple newcomer [...]

Just because all you’ve been hearing and reading about is Samsung this, HTC that, Asus this, Google that, it doesn’t mean they’re the only players on the field. LG certainly hasn’t bowed out of the game and this time, it’s giving people something to look forward to.
If you’re dying for a large screen with great colors but something that not everyone else has, the LG Optimus G might just fit your needs. After playing around with a test unit of the Korean variant (F180K) of the Optimus G, we realized that this, so far, is the best phone that LG has ever produced.

When the world first saw the Galaxy Note, people had mixed reactions. Some said that the device was just too big to be a phone but too small to be a tablet. Other people, however, fell head over heels with the device.
The screen was large enough to make media viewing an absolute joy and the S Pen, the Galaxy Note’s stylus, brought a whole new level of fun to gaming. Fruit Ninja was even more fun when you held a sword-like apparatus in your hand; the S Pen also allowed people to move from their clumsy finger-drawn images in Draw Something to more complicated pieces. Creative folks and note-taking fiends also fell in love with the device, as it allowed them to slap [...]
