When it comes to manufacturing high quality tablet devices, Asus doesn’t cut corners. From build quality, to hardware and software, Asus tends to hit the nail on the head when creating tablets. Their recent onslaught of devices have all been well received by almost everyone who’s had a chance to use them. I had the pleasure of receiving the Transformer Pad TF300T, which is basically the TF201 Prime’s little brother. But, make no mistake, the TF300T holds it’s own against any competitor, thanks to an impressive arsenal of specs, software, and accessories. Hardware The TF300T is no underdog. In fact, it’s packing the specs…

T-Mobile has had it tough over the last couple of years, culminating into a failed takeover bid by mobile networking giant AT&T. The No. 4 network carrier in the US has since jumped on the LTE bandwagon, while also attempting an image re-branding and focusing on its fast 42MBps HSPA+ network, until the LTE network is ready to roll out in 2013. Strategic marketing aside, the best way to get back into the consumers’ good graces is to provide devices and plans that users actually want. With this in mind, T-Mobile has added and will continue to add some hugely…

For those who simply can’t get enough of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 10.1, here’s another video showing the tablet and its accompanying S-Pen in action. We’re trying hard to decipher what’s being said on the video, oh wait, there is none – except for the loud music at the beginning. So you’ll have to make do with a silent demonstration. Unfortunately, there’s little information that we can deduct from the video: we know that the S-Pen can be fitted inside the Galaxy Note 10.1 and how Samsung has decided to go with an HD resolution, something that even Acer has…

CNMO Dual-SIM phones have been around since the early 2000s, so they aren’t really anything out of the ordinary these days. But when a dual-SIM device is being released by a major manufacturer such as HTC (or Sony, for that matter), it’s certainly something to behold, at least for a while. Below you’ll find some hands-on pictures of the dual-SIM HTC Desire V, as posted by CNET Asia, along with their brief impression of the phone. First, here’s a quick reminder about the HTC Desire V’s specs. The phone comes with a 4-inch WVGA display, 1GHz Qualcomm MSM7227A processor, enhanced…

LG may not be the world’s best-known smartphone maker or the largest maker of smartphones in the world, like their co-nationals Samsung, but the Koreans are, nevertheless, a force to be reckoned with. First off, the phone maker has passed through a long period of lackluster evolution, marked by mediocre products and a dwindling mindshare. But now, all signs indicate that LG is back with a vengeance. And for those in the know – LG has been making major waves in their display division, and is producing what many consider to be some of the finest displays available to date. Over…

Very impressively, it allows a simple transition between the two – switching between OSs is as simple pushing a button. Here’s a video of Darcy’s hands-on with…

  When the Jawbone ERA arrived at my doorstep, it caught me completely off guard: I completely forgot it was heading my way for a review. But after spending some time with it, I can assure you, I will not forget the ERA anytime soon. I’ve never really saw myself as one to use a Bluetooth ear piece, because I was always under the impression that they were uncomfortable and clumsy. Is this the case with the Jawbone ERA?

While at CES 2012 I saw a ton of new Tablets and phones running Android one of my favorite things I saw was the Toshiba  Excite 10.1. The reason I fell in love with it was the design, it feels absolutely perfect to me it’s defiantly the best feeling hardware a tablet has ever had. The straight edge makes the thinness of the device really stand out at only 0.3 inches thick. The Toshiba Excite X10 is powered by TI OMAP 4420 dual core processor clocked at 1.2 Ghz equipped with 1 GB of RAM. The screens resolution is 1280 x 800…
