ASUS-Transformer-Pad-300

 

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

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...

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...

Toshiba Excite 7.7

Let’s be honest, Toshiba didn’t exactly hit it out of the park with their last batch of Android tablets. This time though, the guys at Toshiba have rethought their whole marketing... strategy for this market niche and are bringing to market a fresh new line of “exciting” products.

The Excite 7.7, 10 and 13 were all unveiled last week and are set to hit the market in the...

Two words – Smartphone, projector. What’s not to love? Do you remember the Samsung Galaxy Beam Android-based smartphone with a built-in projector that was unveiled back at the MWC... in February? You better.

Perhaps the reason that most of you might have forgotten about this particularly cool gizmo is that it hasn’t been advertised since its official introduction. As is no...

HTC One X Passes Through The FCC With Quad-Core Tegra 3 On Board

The HTC One X is likely to be the first quad-core smartphone in the world to reach the hands of consumers. As such, it is probably the most hyped smartphone out there at this point, with both Android-related... (us included), as well as general tech sites eagerly reporting every small bit of available information about HTC’s next flagship superphone. Add to the fact that HTC is equipping all smartphones in the One s...

A society that will trade a little liberty for a little order will lose both, and deserve neither, said Thomas Jefferson a couple of centuries ago. This is a tech blog, so why the heck am I bringing... this up? Because Verizon’s recent letter to the FTC reminded me that the old “liberty or protection” false dilemma is still used (successfully) to trick us into putting up with all kinds of thin...

I bet if you just hang out at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) all day long, you’ll discover who the latest to get a patent is. In most recent stories, Google is the latest to ask... the FCC for permission. However, they have not disclosed what this mysterious ‘entertainment device’ is. All we know is that they got permission to use it in the four major US cities over the next 6...

Samsung-Galaxy-Note

 

Earlier this month at CES AT&T announced six new LTE devices they would be launching on their network soon, including the first LTE Windows phone. But there was a device that was... a bit more interesting to us, Android fan boys, the Samsung Galaxy Note which has been widely popular overseas. It is finally going to land in North America pretty soon. A Canadian carrier also announ...
