Sony-Xperia-Tipo-front

Not quite ready to make a $100 upfront commitment for AT&T’s Sony Xperia Ion? Perhaps the manufacturer’s more affordable offering is what you seek. The entry-level Sony Xperia Tipo,... which was unveiled to the world just last month, was all dolled up for its FCC appointment yesterday.

As reported by Unwired View, FCC has just approved a Sony phone that goes by the model num...

LG Optimus Vu Verizon

Although LG made the Optimus Vu “phablet” available as a Korea-only device back in March, we suspected that things won’t stay the same for a very long time. However, seeing that the 5-incher... was nowhere to be found in the US or Europe almost four months after that, we pretty much lost hope for the gadget to ever become globally released.

That’s until we spotted a set of FCC approval d...

Sony-Xperia-neo-L

Sony’s current US line-up of Android-based smartphones is pretty rich, but that doesn’t seem to make the Japanese hesitant to enrich it even further. The Xperia Neo L, a low-end, but very good-looking... handheld, is the latest Sony device to be heading towards the States and, while company officials haven’t confirmed the news, we just spotted an FCC filing that does exactly that. As usual, the FCC certifi...

sony-xperia-go

Unveiled a few weeks ago next to the more technically impressive acro S, the mid-range (or low-end?) Sony Xperia Go has just gotten FCC’s approval, and is therefore on its way to a US release.... We still don’t know when exactly is the American launch supposed to happen or how will the 3.5-incher be priced, but if you’re interested in an affordable phone with some nice extra features, you shou...

A couple of weeks back we reported on rumors about Motorola’s future line-up of Android-based smartphones, led by the Vanquish, Asanti, and Dinara. And while the first... two were just about confirmed as coming soon, the third one, rumored to be Moto’s future AT&T flagship, was covered in utter mystery.

We are now happy to inform you that at least part of t...

Samsung-Galaxy-note

Much to everyone’s surprise, Samsung’s Galaxy Note “phablet” was a big hit among tech users all over the world, selling an average of a million units per month for the last seven months.... However, the Note still has a few aces up its sleeve, one being an expansion in the US, beyond AT&T, the only carrier to be selling the “monster” for now.

T-Mobile has always been the most...

ASUS-Transformer-Pad-300

 

The debate around WiFi-only vs 3G/4G-enabled tablets has been raging for a while now.

WiFi-only supporters believe that the benefits of their choice are obvious, with the... lower costs associated with the WiFi-only variant. In addition, more and more public places (airports, stations, coffee shops, etc.) now feature paid or, sometimes, even free WiFi connectivity.

Huawei-Ascend-P1

There was quite a lot of hoopla in the Android world back in January and February, when Huawei unveiled what they called the “world’s most powerful” handheld and the “world’s slimmest”... phone.

However, the excitement significantly toned down in the months following the announcements, as we heard very little about the Ascend D Quad’s and Ascend P1’s worldwide releases. The P1 did...

ASUS transformer pad infinity

The high-end tablet market has been largely ignored over the past few months, with a slew of low-cost, but impressive Android 4.0 tablets hitting the stores. While there are a lot of such budget-friendly... options, there is obviously something far more attractive about those quad-cored, high-resolution tablets, regardless of the much higher price point.

ASUS has been slowly circling the high-end tablet market...

Toshiba-Excite-13

After enjoying rather modest success with its Thrive line of tablets in 2011, Toshiba has decided to mix things up and launch a new trio of very different slates. The Excite 7.7, Excite 10,... and Excite 13 were all revealed a while back, and all three are expected to become available by the end of June.

The humongous Excite 13 was just spotted at the FCC and can now be finally conf...
