Look out Samsung – there’s a new, thin, and sexy tablet in town, looking to snatch your crown in the ever-crowded Android tablet market. We’re talking about the forthcoming Toshiba Excite tablets. While the voluptuous Toshiba Thrive series, the company’s first dip in the market, were anything but sexy, they did come with a generous set of features and connectivity ports that made them quite memorable and not entirely dispensable. Now, the Excite series proves the world that Toshiba means serious business. And, this time around, the sleek looks and svelte built were high on the Japanese’ priorities list.
Last night, Sony showed us the newest members of its Xperia NXT series, the Xperia U and Xperia P. The new NXT brand, launched at CES with the Xperia S, embodies Sony’s commitment to change the image of its ill-fated mobile products. Just ten days ago, the Japanese have finally signed the divorce papers with Ericsson, and now Sony is ready to shine again on its own.

No word on the pricing yet, but according to Sammy’s press release, the new Tab 2 10.1 and 7.0 will first be available in the U.K., followed closely by a worldwide launch.
How is the new Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 better than its kid sister, the Tab 2 7.0? Frankly, not in many ways. Both devices will run the new Android 4.0 ICS, flavored with [...]
HTC plans to announce something exciting at MWC today – the long rumored HTC One X and HTC One S, also known as Endeavor and Ville, respectively. In fact, the Taiwanese have been literally counting the days to their Sunday announcement. But, as it so often happens, somebody had to come along and ruin the fun for HTC.
Yesterday, Marco Polo, an Italian shopping site, briefly listed One X and One S for sale, complete with specifications and images. Actually, as The Verge reports, the two devices were posted under their previous circulated codenames, Endeavor and Ville, which adds to the confusion that built up over the last weeks.
But the cherry on top comes from a [...]
