Motoluxe-XT685

When placed beside Moto’s greats like the Razr and Atrix series, folks in the US may not be too familiar with the Motoluxe. It’s a shame, because the series does have its charms and is actually... quite the looker, if only Moto had bothered to sell it in the country.

Android China

We’ve talked several times in the past about how the global smartphone market is dominated by China, where pricing and functionality come first, while hardware specs and raw power are often... ignored by the regular tech users.

Most recently, we’ve been seeing some interesting movements in the Chinese smartphone market, with Alibaba and Baidu, two relatively unknown names in the Wes...

Motorola-XT889

Motorola might not be one of the most popular Android device manufacturers in the US (not anymore), but over in China, it’s still fairly successful. We shouldn’t, therefore, be very surprised... to see Moto unveiling the China-exclusive Razr V XT889, one of the most fashionable Motorola-designed phones of recent time.

The RAZR V rocks a very sleek design, with rounded edges and a display wr...

LePad-A2107

In a tech world where pretty much everything has been done at least once, it’s very difficult to truly innovate.

However, while most manufacturers are simply doing their best to... come up with the thinnest gadgets (0.000001 inch slimmer!) or the ones with the crispest screens, Lenovo has unveiled a tablet with at least one truly original feature.

The LePad A2107, the com...

Galaxy S3

Samsung seems to have learned its lesson after the worldwide release fiasco of the Galaxy S2, a phone that needed over four months to spread from Europe to America. This time around, Samsung... is doing a great job to put the new S3 (almost) simultaneously up for sale in as many parts of the world as possible.
