What traits must a tablet possess in order to earn the title of “the best Android tablet?” Is it hardware? A quad-core CPU, or a large, high-resolution display that bedazzles your eyes? Or how about a rock bottom price? Or, is it software like Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a slim-easy to use overlay? Do you enjoy a device with superb build quality and top-notch materials?
No matter which trait you stand by, the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T is sure to tickle your fancy.
Amidst the release of their Google flagship Nexus 7 (an excellent device), Asus has taken the time to craft one of the absolute best tablets I’ve ever had the [...]
When it comes to manufacturing high quality tablet devices, Asus doesn’t cut corners. From build quality, to hardware and software, Asus tends to hit the nail on the head when creating tablets. Their recent onslaught of devices have all been well received by almost everyone who’s had a chance to use them. I had the pleasure of receiving the Transformer Pad TF300T, which is basically the TF201 Prime’s little brother.
But, make no mistake, the TF300T holds it’s own against any competitor, thanks to an impressive arsenal of specs, software, and accessories.Hardware

T-Mobile has had it tough over the last couple of years, culminating into a failed takeover bid by mobile networking giant AT&T.

Strategic marketing aside, the best way to get back into the consumers’ good graces is to provide devices and plans that users actually want.
With this in mind, T-Mobile has added and will continue to add some hugely popular [...]
Although budget tablets have been the object of numerous discussions over the past six months or so, when Google announced the Asus-built Nexus 7 tablet in late June at the Google I/O conference, the speculation dam just imploded as most of the online tech media has begun publishing stories on how other tablet manufacturers will respond to this move.

Whittling down your choice can be tedious, as you will be presented with a large number of phones from a large number of manufacturers.

But now, all signs indicate that LG is back with a vengeance. And for those in the know – LG has been making major waves in their display division, and is producing what many consider to be some of the finest displays available to date.
Over the past several months, LG has scored a number of important wins. It [...]
Yesterday we did a terrible thing. We took a brand new Samsung Galaxy S3 and purposefully dropped it multiple times for you. It was awful to watch, but we know that our viewers get a strange enjoyment from cell phone obliteration. We also dropped a brand new iPhone 4S and filmed that too! Before we get to the real fun, let’s take a look at how the iPhone 4s matches up to the Galaxy S3.Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 4s
This video is mostly for your amusement but it does have a slight undertone of consumer advice. Some people – no matter how much they love their smartphones – can be very clumsy. We have all had the horrific experience of watching our device [...]
