The Galaxy Note 5.3″ – “Largest Screen with Smartphone Portability” [Video]

by: LucianSeptember 2, 2011

Yesterday at IFA Samsung sent a message to all their competitors that they take the Android ecosystem very seriously, and they want to be not only the biggest player in it, but also the best one. One of their stars was a new type of smartphone/mini-tablet of 5.3″ that brings us an HD resolution of 1280×800 on a SuperAMOLED display. Samsung believes the Note is a new type of device, with the largest possible display and resolution, while still fitting in your pocket.

The phone is also Samsung’s fastest phone yet, sporting a dual core 1.4 Ghz Exynos chip. It comes with a 8 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front camera, has 1 GB of RAM, a 2500 mAh battery, it [...]

by: Alvin YbañezSeptember 1, 2011

The Motorola PRO+ will be invading Europe and Asia this coming October, according to the latest information from Motorola Mobility.

Android Targeted By Trojan Hack

by: Aerol BibatAugust 29, 2011

Not to alarm you but Android malware is steadily on the rise. This is mostly prompted by the fact that the OS has become a massively popular mobile platform. Digital troublemakers know that the best place to wreak havoc is where there are a lot of users, and Android is just the place to be for them.

Recently, researchers have managed to detect the most dangerous Android malware example yet discovered. It’s a Trojan that exploits the ‘GingerBreak’ root hack that was discovered last April. The flaw is found in Android 2.3 and will most likely target smartphones, though tablets using the OS can also be infected.

Battle of the Rugged Android Smartphones: Motorola DEFY+ VS. Samsung Galaxy Xcover VS. Sony Ericsson Xperia Active

by: LucianAugust 28, 2011

I have a dream, and that dream is that a few years from now, most smartphones will be “rugged”,  which means being water resistant, dust-proof, scratch-proof, and last but not least, shock resistant. If the phone still looks good, it’s not much more expensive than without those features, then who wouldn’t want their phones to be like that?

Smartphones are becoming such important tools in our lives that we can’t live without, even more so than we can live without our PC’s or notebooks. We have them everywhere with us, and they keep us connected wherever we go. But because of that and because we keep these phones on average about 2 [...]

Preview of the New HTC Sense 3.5 UI

by: LucianAugust 26, 2011

HTC was the first manufacturer to put a skin on Android, and arguably they did a pretty good job at it. While everyone else has been scrambling to catch-up to their first version of the Sense UI, they continued improving it and making it more visually appealing with the 3.0 version, and this fall they are going to launch new handsets with their seemingly overhauled Sense 3.5 UI.

Gingerbread or Icecream Sandwich?

Since ICS is supposedly coming in October, I doubt this new Sense 3.5 UI is going to be for ICS phones, so it’s most likely coming to their new Android 2.3 phones. Another hint about this is that their version number is 3.5, not 4.0, even though the skin [...]

Cyanogen Mod Brings Android 2.3.5 To The Motorola Triumph

by: Aerol BibatAugust 14, 2011

The Motorola Triumph is one of the better handsets in the market right now. It’s got a decent 4.1-inch WVGA screen, nice 2GB of storage, and a fairly reasonable $300 price tag. The main problem with it is that it only uses vanilla Froyo. This puts it at a disadvantage compared to phones that are packing Gingerbread. There are also several advantages that aren’t available to Froyo users, like a better and improved interface and others. Unfortunately, Motorola hasn’t announced any plans to upgrade the phone to a more modern OS, which is a pity.

Well, here’s some good news for Triumph owners. The CyanogenMod7 was recently ported to the Triumph and the the [...]

Sprint Busts Out The Samsung Conquer 4G For Their Lineup

by: Aerol BibatAugust 8, 2011

Sprint has been talking up its 4G network for awhile, however, the cost of entry has been a bit prohibitive. Fortunately, Samsung’s here to the rescue. The two have paired up and have just released the latest info on their latest handset, the cheap Conquer 4G. This also happens to be their first 4G phone that releases under a hundred dollars, making it the most affordable 4G entry phone on the market.

So what does the Conquer bring to the table?

Quite a few things actually. First of all, it’s powered by a 1 GHz CPU – which enable it to run Android 2.3. As if Gingerbread wasn’t enough, it also comes with Sprint ID and access to [...]

The Sheng 708 Shows Up In Hong Kong

by: Aerol BibatJuly 20, 2011

Diversity produces innovation. It’s great to have a lot of products in a competing market – they sort of encourage each other to improve. Here’s an example of that diversity from Hong Kong. Named the Sheng 708, it’s an Android tablet that’s got a removable battery – a pretty unique trait.

When you look at the device, you can see a back panel which you can slide off. This reveals a battery compartment. Most laptops have featured removable batteries, however, tablets haven’t been so open in their systems. What this means is if you run out of charge you will need to plug in. This also means that if your battery conks out – [...]

Cricket Wireless To Bring In Huawei Ascend II

by: Aerol BibatJuly 13, 2011

Huawei may not exactly be in the same pedigree as Nokia or Motorola, but the China-based company has been consistently putting out quality electronics for a while now. They’re not the usual cheap knock-offs either; these are honest-to-God well-made products that you wouldn’t be ashamed of being seen using. One of these sterling products is the Huawei Ascend. Cricket Wireless launched it as part of their contract plans since last year and we can call it a minor success.

Well, it seems that Huawei has decided to follow that achievement this year. News has leaked that the company is finishing up their work on the successor to the Ascend. Appending a “II” [...]

Samsung Galaxy Z Delivers Cheaper Galaxy Performance

by: Aerol BibatJuly 1, 2011

So you want to own Samsung’s latest Galaxy S II but don’t have the cash for it? Well, it’s good that Samsung is looking out for the bottom line and remembering expensive stuff means not many buyers as there could be. The Korean company knows how tight money can get and has come up with a solution for cash-strapped seeking smart phones.

What they did was to cut down on some of the Galaxy S II’s awesome specs. That may sound like a bad idea, but if you really want to bring costs down, downgrading some of the stuff that people don’t actually use much is a good way to cut costs. Don’t worry though, the Samsung Galaxy Z as it is called is still [...]
