Though we’re likely more than three weeks away from the big Samsung Galaxy Note 3 unveiling, the next-gen phablet is becoming less of a question mark by the day.
Big day today for Asus as far as media attention goes, with a large chunk of the company’s near future plans revealed courtesy of two subsequent leaks. The Taiwanese are reportedly working on a follow-up to Samsung’s Nexus 10, plus an array of 100% self-branded phones and tabs.
It’s not unusual to see sub-$200 or even sub-$100 smartphones being released by obscure manufacturers from China and India that would be willing to do anything to be noticed. Not unusual, but still pretty impressive.
We always assumed August was to be a hectic month for Verizon, with America’s number one wireless network receiving three new Droid family members, plus the Moto X and HTC One, but it turns out the final ten days of this month will be much more crowded than expected.
While the G2 was undoubtedly the biggest star of yesterday’s LG New York event, being also probably the coolest Android phone around, a more modest mid-ranger was also (quietly) introduced as part of the press conference that wrapped up less than 24 hours ago.
Formally introduced to the world for the first time a couple of weeks ago and already launched in Taiwan, the HTC Desire 500 has earlier today gotten a second formal intro and some awfully vague details concerning its release on the Western hemisphere.
With roughly seven hours left to go until LG G2’s highly anticipated formal intro, we’re sad to inform you there’s basically nothing of interest still uncovered. We’ve seen the big guy caught on camera several times already, the spec sheet is as transparent as glass and even the exact product dimensions have been revealed.
After a far too long period of time in which smartphone manufacturers have looked unwilling or unable (or in some cases both) to make any compelling advancements in the battery life department, things are at long last moving in the right direction.
Xolo A500S breaks cover: a stylish 4-incher with Android 4.2, dual-core speed and Rs. 7,000 price tag
Seeing as the majority of today’s budget-friendly smartphones in India are, let’s face it, fugly and chunky, it’s a big breath of fresh air to be able to welcome the Lava Xolo A500S. This fellow is terribly uninspired in the hardware department, but it saves face with up to date software and most of all
Uh-oh, Intel is in trouble… again. As if the recent benchmark cheating accusations were not enough to put a dent into the seemingly impressive advancement of the company’s mobile chips, it appears one of Intel’s most notable partners is looking away from Santa Clara.
We’ve all talked about it, we’ve all craved for it at one time or another, but ultimately we risk being heavily disappointed by Motorola’s Moto X.
Aside from easily dominating the local mobile telecommunications décor, China Mobile is currently the most popular carrier in the world, having over 700 million subscribers (the world number two has less than 400 million and the Chinese runner-up just 160 mil).
Despite dominating the PC manufacturer ranks for the sixth year in a row in 2012, HP is certainly not doing as well as it did back in the day. And I’m talking both financially and creatively, with the company’s recent laptops, desktops and everything in between looking just plain boring.
SmartNamo is an Android OEM that practically came out of nowhere a couple of months ago, announcing a fairly intriguing 5-inch smartphone dedicated to a very controversial political figure in India, Narendra Modi, the current Chief Minister of Gujarat (nicknamed the “Iron Man” of modern India).
If you want something big, bad and hot and aren’t willing to wait it out for when Samsung will make the Galaxy Note 3 available, Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra might just be the perfect device for you. Only the 6.4-incher is itself hard to score… for now.
This August is shaping up to be a busy, busy month for America’s number one wireless communications service provider. Verizon will reportedly look to finally unveil its own version of the HTC One, plus its exclusive new Droid family members and the Moto X.
Nostalgic about the flip phone era? Still a fan of physical keyboards, but also willing to use a tiny touchscreen from time to time? Then this one’s for you: the Samsung SCH-W789, aka Hennessy, also known as Galaxy Folder, according to some sources.
Remember that crazy rumor about Xiaomi prepping an upper mid-range phone with 720p display, quad-core processor and $160 price tag? Well, it’s a rumor no more. And it gets better, as the Red Rice is reportedly set to go on sale for an incredible Yuan 799 ($130) after all.
Third time still hasn’t really been the charm for the Asus PadFone hybrid, which continues to be viewed as a tech oddity rather than an innovation. And yet that doesn’t appear to stop the evolution of the family.
Despite ranking fourth in global mobile phone sales for 2012, China-based ZTE has always suffered due to its inability of making headway in key markets. Namely, the company was completely absent from India and was still viewed as a second-tier OEM in many European countries, as well as the US.
