We’ve talked time and again over the past few months about the “Chinese offensive” on the global smartphone market, led by companies like Huawei, ZTE, Alibaba and Baidu. However, it seems... that there are even more Chinese tech manufacturers looking to make it big in an Apple and Android dominated world, and some of the smaller ones, like Xiaomi, are growing in leaps and bounds.

Android Transporter

Those of you who’ve been following up with our website for more than a little while might remember a little piece we did a month back on Android Transporter, a software project based on Wi-Fi... Display technology that makes wireless display between two Android devices a piece of cake.

The project was in development at the time and is still far from an official introduction and release, bu...

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...

Google Glasses

We’ve been hearing about Google’s Project Glass and how it could turn the science-fiction of yesterday into the reality of tomorrow for a while now. But until a few weeks ago, very few of... us seriously thought that we would see the “augmented reality head-mounted display” released commercially in the close future.

However, things are really starting to shape up for the Google...

Men and women in the Navy have to make a lot of sacrifices while out at sea, being cut out from land, their families and friends for months in a row. However, US sailors might enjoy a bit of... extra comfort while on service soon, as plans of fitting Navy ships with LTE-like networks surfaced last week.

While US Navy ships are already connected to the Internet in one way or another, t...

facebook

Although Facebook’s IPO (Initial Public Offering) was called by financial experts a failure, Mark Zuckerberg’s monster company still has its sights set very high. With stocks falling and... more than $17 billion lost off an initial $104 billion valuation, the social networking service might be looking to expand way off its comfort zone and into smartphone hardware manufacturing.

samsung-galaxy-note

Not long ago it seemed like a mobile phone’s most important target was to be as slim, light and portable as possible. But recently, tech users have started changing... their views on the market. They now look for phones with the largest and brightest screens, first and foremost.

However, a display’s size could be deceiving sometimes, as there are still a multit...

Whether we like it or not, the time of the “petite” phones with touchscreens between 3.5 and 4 inches has passed and we are now heading towards the domination of “super-phones”... and “phablets”. It’s practically impossible to find a high-end Android smartphone released during the last few months (or due for release soon) that has a display smaller than a 4-inch and the biggest hits...

nokia-808-pureview

We’ve all come to take for granted how easy it is to take a photo or video at any time, thanks to our smartphones having cameras. While it’s amazing that we have this ability, one... thing that has been sacrificed for the most part is the actual photo and video quality. In most cases, manufacturers have settled to pumping up the sensor size, neglecting other aspects, such as better...

android transporter 2

A few months back, we started hearing about WiFi Display technology and how it could be featured by smartphones, tablets and TVs by the end of 2012. Unfortunately, while it... sounded like a fantastic idea in theory, we haven’t heard anything since then about any developments in the field; it has recently felt as if the technology was never going to become reality.<...
