Huawei-Ascend-P1

After hitting China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Australia, Huawei’s first (sort of) high-end smartphone looks finally ready to be made available in Europe. The Ascend P1 has popped up on Amazon Germany and Unieuro Italy‘s websites, where it’s almost equally priced, but neither of the two retailers has announced a release date or a pre-order start for the handheld. Hands on video of Huawei P1 The 4.3-incher is set to go for €449 in Germany and for €449.90 in Italy, both prices being, of course, for unsubsidized, SIM-free versions of the phone. That would convert into around $565, at today’s…

Toshiba AT300

Known in the States as the Excite 10, Toshiba’s latest 10-inch tablet has finally been made official in Europe. The AT300, as it will be called on the Old Continent, will come with pretty much the same tech specs as the US version, but still doesn’t have an official price tag next to its name. We also don’t know exactly where will the AT300 be made available in Europe and when you should expect it to start selling, but the UK and Italian releases have been confirmed and we are fairly positive that we will be seeing the tablet all…

LG Optimus 4X HD

Although it’s currently not one of the key players in the high-end smartphone market niche, LG is surely making efforts to challenge the likes of Apple, Samsung, or HTC. We reported recently on the launch of the Optimus LTE2, the world’s first ever phone to come with 2 GB of RAM, while just a couple of days ago the LS970 “Eclipse” was leaked and left us speechless with a truly impressive spec sheet. However, that’s not all for LG, as the Optimus 4X HD might be a worthy competitor for the Galaxy S3 or the HTC One X starting… in…

LG-Optimus-L7

LG’s Optimus L line of smartphones was introduced to the public way back at the MWC in February and, after a grueling wait, the second device of the trio has now been released. The Optimus L7 was set to be the closest of the three smartphones to what you’d call high-end technology these days. But now, after seeing the HTC One X in action and just as we’re waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S3, the L7 looks more like a mid-range device than a top-tier. Sporting a 4.3-inch WVGA screen with 480 x 800 pixels resolution, the Optimus L7 has…

sony google tv

As excited as we were more than a year ago, when we first heard of the Google TV concept, we must admit that we were pretty disappointed by how the concept turned out to be in reality. The pricing and lack of content were the two biggest problems users had with Google TV, so it’s no wonder that the device didn’t draw the kind of public that Google and its partners expected. The second generation of Google TVs should mix things up a bit, as there are now more important manufacturers jumping on the bandwagon. Also, we’ve heard talk about…

razr_maxx

The Droid RAZR Maxx is currently Motorola’s flagship smartphone and, even though it has been available on the US market for about two months now, a large part of the world is yet to get a taste of the impressive 4.3-incher. But that’s about to change in the coming weeks. According to an official Motorola announcement issued earlier today, the RAZR Maxx will be finally hitting European and Middle Eastern markets in May. Of course, it will drop the “Droid” from its name and it will not come with 4G LTE connectivity, but other than that, it will be the…

htc_one_series

After weeks of seemingly endless waiting for some official news from HTC regarding the One series smartphones, we have finally been put to ease. Well, at least some of us have, because the One-branded smartphone trio has an official release date next to its name, but, so far, it’s only for “some” European countries. The HTC One X, S, and V will be made available for sale starting April 2nd (that’s right, next Monday) in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In other European countries, including the UK, carriers and retailers have announced that the handhelds are coming on April 5. Meanwhile,…

With an earlier unveiling by Samsung on January 3, the Galaxy Ace Plus seems to be yet another budget phones for users interested in Android, that do not want to spend a lot of coin. The phone is said to release in Russia, with European countries to follow later this month, or even early February. The phone being a budget device does not have a lot of great specs. The Galaxy Ace Plus will contain a 1GHz processor, 3.65” HVGA screen, 5MP camera with flash, 3GB of storage and 512MB of RAM, and 1300 mAh battery. Along with a small price,…

Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-10.1-Reviews

Samsung and Apple have been at each others’ throats over patents for awhile now. The latest casualty in the entire mess was the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The Regional Court of DĂĽsseldorf recently decided that the tablet should be banned from being sold in EU countries, a solid hit at its marketing strategy. However, Samsung isn’t calling it quits just yet. The Korean company is all set to appeal the ban at a hearing scheduled for August 25. The big European ban is supposedly Apple’s knock-out punch for this round, but with Samsung not surrendering the European market just yet, it may…

HTC have recently announced that they intend to release the Gratia to European markets. The Gratia is very much like the Aria. It will offer pretty much exactly the same hardware as the Aria aside from the 3G radio. Indeed, this is the main reason for launching the device as a separate phone. This new Gratia will support HSPA/WCDMA 900/2100 along with its quadband GSM/EDGE. Other specifications include a 3.2-inches and HVGA resolution, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, WiFi b/g, a microUSB port, 3.5mm headphone socket and GPS. It will be possible to expand the storage via microSD. This device should launch in…
