Google to offer 100 GB of free cloud storage to new Chromebook and Chromebox buyers?

by: AdrianAugust 1, 2012

Google’s first-generation Chromebooks haven’t quite made it to the mainstream yet, but the search giant has decided not only to follow up on those devices, but also to step up its game a bit.

The makers of the web-centric Chrome OS have upped the ante in terms of tech specs, equipping the new Chromebook with a far snappier processor than the first-generation one, but also with more RAM. Aside from the new Series 5 Chromebook 550, Google has also released a brand new Series 3 Chromebox, similar with Apple’s Mac Minis, but available at a lower price point.

While all those changes have been welcomed warmly by everyone involved in the tech business, the new [...]

Motorola Atrix HD LTE and RAZR V Bell launches delayed, both still set to come in August

by: AdrianAugust 1, 2012

There’s nothing more annoying than seeing a launch delayed, especially when talking about a device with huge potential, like the Atrix HD LTE. Then again, Bell Canada, who has supposedly pushed back the handheld’s release, didn’t announce the official launch date in the first place, so maybe we shouldn’t be too harsh on the carrier.

The new Atrix HD LTE was supposed to start selling up North on August 2, according to a leak coming from a very trustworthy source, but now it seems that Moto’s new flagship will not hit Canadian stores until almost three weeks later, on the 21st.

This new piece of information is based on a leaked internal memo picked up by the guys [...]

Sony Xperia Tablet leaks, to hit the market in September starting at $450

by: AdrianJuly 31, 2012

When Sony announced it will organize a special “unveiling event” in Berlin at the end of August, we knew that the company was preparing to launch at least a couple of new and exciting products. However, it will be hard for the Japanese to surprise us in any way, as their future devices have been almost certainly revealed.

The Hayabusa phone has been known for a while to be the global version of the already unveiled Xperia GX, the Mint has leaked not long ago, and now an “Xperia Tablet” has been revealed online. The leak seems very trustworthy, not due to its source, but due to the information revealed, which is clearly too elaborate to be false. There are no less than [...]

MetroPCS plans for the rest of the year leaked, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S Lightray, Huawei Verge and others coming soon

by: AdrianJuly 31, 2012

MetroPCS might not be in the exact same league as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile, but the regional carrier has grown steadily in the last couple of years, attracting more and more customers. Based on a leaked roadmap, however, it seems like we ain’t seen nothing yet, and MetroPCS might be looking to seriously step it up by the end of the year.

The carrier is planning to add no less than eight new smartphones to its portfolio in 2012, if the leak’s source proves accurate, and the leading name on the list is by far the Samsung Galaxy S3. Already up for sale from five US carriers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular), the S3 should hit MetroPCS [...]

LG Optimus 4X HD coming to Canada in September

by: Bams SadewoJuly 31, 2012

When everyone else was playing with their single-core phones, LG was first to deliver a dual-core smartphone in the Optimus 2X. With the Optimus 4X HD, however, we’re seeing LG playing catch up with other major players in the high-end quad-core field. It seems only logical that the Koreans are trying to make up for the lost ground by launching the phone successively in many regions. The phone arrived in Europe in late June, followed by a launch in several Asian countries.

Folks in North America shouldn’t feel left out if they’re not seeing the Optimus 4X HD in stores yet. LG [...]

Sony Xperia GX Japanese launch pushed back to August, $920 latest rumored price

by: AdrianJuly 30, 2012

Samsung and HTC don’t have much competition in the high-end smartphone market niche these days, but we knew for a while that Sony is preparing a charge against the S3 and the One X. But, while Sony’s future flagships look really special in theory, the release delays might seriously affect their practical chances of making a difference.

According to official information on NTT DoCoMo’s webpage, the Japanese carrier will start taking pre-orders for the Xperia GX on August 2, and ship the phone a full week later, on the 9th. That means that, for some reason, the initial plans – to put the handheld up for sale in July – have been modified. Sure, we might [...]

Motorola Atrix HD LTE to hit Virgin Mobile Canada soon

by: AdrianJuly 30, 2012

It’s only been a few weeks since Motorola officially took the wraps off the new Atrix HD LTE, but it seems that Google’s subsidiary has some big plans with the super-phone. In US, AT&T has for now been granted the “honor” to be the only supplier of the 4.5-incher, while in Canada the Atrix could come to two carriers.

We reported on the rumors that Bell could be the first carrier up north to get the phone just over a week ago, and now it seems that Virgin Mobile is ready to follow suite. The new rumor comes from the same source as the old one, Mobile Syrup, and, while not yet officially confirmed, it’s very trustworthy.

Again, a leaked internal screenshot [...]

Rumors: AT&T to cut HTC One X price by half, red Galaxy S3 to start selling

by: AdrianJuly 27, 2012

Although it was hailed as HTC’s comeback and it supposedly started off more than decently, the One X couldn’t stand the Galaxy S3 charge and saw its sales rapidly drop. No, that’s not an official story, but earlier rumors, combined with a new one, certainly make the scenario trustworthy.

The new rumor comes from an XDA-Developers forum user, who supposedly got his hands on an AT&T e-mail announcing the upcoming price slashing of the One X. “Surflamj”, a junior member of the forum, has stated that he works “for AT&T as a sales rep”, and says that the One X’s discount won’t be part of a temporary “special or deal”.

That means that, starting this Sunday, [...]

Verizon’s Pantech Star Q 4G LTE leaked, slider phone with Snapdragon S4 and ICS

by: Bams SadewoJuly 27, 2012

Now that summer break is almost over, Verizon is hoping to catch the new school year momentum by unleashing the Pantech Star Q 4G LTE. The Star Q’s main attraction is its 5-row QWERTY keyboard, which should be welcomed by text-obsessed students or other folks who often have to do their word processing on the road.

Slide-out QWERTY keyboard aside, the Pantech Star Q 4G LTE is no slouch in the speed department. The phone is equipped with a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor; the same chip used in high-end Android smartphones. It boasts a 4-inch display of 800 x 480 resolution, 3MP rear camera, and a front camera. Another surprise is the inclusion of Android 4.0 Ice [...]

Could the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 have two different unveilings, one for the US and one for Europe?

by: AdrianJuly 26, 2012

Although it hasn’t (yet) managed to raise the same amount of hype as the Galaxy S3, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 2 is one of the most awaited and debated Android devices on our radar. Rumors have suggested different unveiling and release dates for the second-generation phablet, and while Samsung is still keeping the mystery intact, things seem to be shaping up for a busy August.

You might remember we talked about a mysterious invite Samsung sent our way last week for a “major announcement and unveiling of the newest Galaxy device”. The event was to take place on August 15, but that date didn’t make nice with earlier speculations, which almost guaranteed Sammy will [...]
