Someone over at the AndroidHD blog must be seriously in love with their Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. So much so that they spend a whole day playing with the new droid tablet and edited the whole thing into a 12 minute long ad (an unofficial one, that is).
The video takes the Tab 10.1 everywhere – from home, on the train, in the car, on a boat, or to see the Eiffel Tower back home… Read more »
I’ve been waiting for this feature for quite a while – Google will allow you to bock whole sites from its search results, starting today. There are browser plug-ins to do that, but now the Big G is building it right into their search pages.
Google is pretty good at finding what I need, but when researching a more obscure topic, most of the results point to the same nasty link spam site that not just gets in the way, but is terribly annoying too… Read more »
When Nokia and Microsoft announced their partnership it surprised many, but some insiders have info that sheds more light on the reasons behind the move. It’s not just Stephen Elop’s Microsoft past, apparently there’s also a billion dollar changing hands (going from Microsoft to Nokia).
It’s more complicated than just the money though – there’s fees, patent portfolios, mapping services and other considerations… Read more »
HTC have enlisted the help of Girls Aloud member Sarah Harding to promote the HTC Incredible S in the UK. They set up a photo shoot and here’s the result (two more photos after the jump).
The Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy are now offering the handset and they claim exclusivity… Read more »
We occasionally cover concepts for mobile phones – they may never leave the drawing board, but their designers often dream up of interesting new features that might one day make it to actual devices.
This design is by Baek Kil Hyun (a student at the Samsung Art & Design Institute) and it’s called 360 Compact Mobile Phone (hey, the guy’s a designer, not a copywriter). His imaginary product implements two flips that are also displays and do what the iPad 2’s Smart covers do, except… they are better. Read more »
The official iPad 2 announcement is drawing close (6PM London time) but that’s not stopping last-minute leaks. We already eyed up the supposed leaked photos of the second-generation iPad and now apparently Amazon Germany jumped the gun and (accidentally!) put their iPad 2 listing out in the open.

That simple slip up gives up a lot of details on the upcoming Apple tablet – same screen size, but faster CPU and a Thunderbolt port for example… Read more »
Nokia has been mentioning their Ovi Browser more often than not – and they’ve released a new beta version to try out. It has received some polish since we saw it last year.
Sounds good, but is it good enough to beat the current king of feature phone browsing, Opera Mini?… Read more »
Well, I don’t know how much truth there is in advertising but I’m willing to bet such encounters like the one shown in this ad are purely fictional. Either that or I should have become a taxi driver.
Anyway, if a pretty girl does walk into your taxi then you’d better have a Nokia C7 at the ready as this ad shows… Read more »
MobileMe is dead, long live MobileMe? Apple has put their online service on the End of Life list, discontinuing both online and in-store purchases. And of course, rumors about the MobileMe service going free started churning in the Internet rumor mill.
Perhaps Apple’s new data center might have something to do with all this… Read more »
Apple just updated their MacBook Pro line with three new models – 13”, 15” and 17” in size. Their sleek aluminum bodies have Intel Core i processors along with new graphics and plenty of battery life.
The three new MacBook Pros also feature the new Thunderbolt port, which supports more or less every wired-connectivity technology you can think of… Read more »
HP updated the EliteBook and ProBook series with new devices and it’s aluminum and Sandy Bridge CPUs all around.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the new models… Read more »
What do you know, it turns out that Windows 8 may be surprisingly close – a leaked roadmap has led to speculation that Windows 8 (codenamed Windows Next) could turn up in beta form at Microsoft’s Professional Developers Conference (PDC) in September.
Which is just in time, if the rumors about the Dell Peju tablet coming out in Q1 2012 are right… Read more »
It turns out that Android 3.0 Honeycomb is not just for tablets – XDA-Developers already have an alpha version of a Honeycomb ROM running on the Google Nexus One.
The screen on the Nexus One is too small for comfortable use of the Honeycomb UI, but I think that the possibility of such a ROM making it to the tablets that don’t have Honeycomb is more exciting… Read more »
Tablets dominated much of the attention at the Mobile World Congress and with good reason. Some of the new phones weren’t terribly impressive, while there were plenty of new things in the tablet world.
Android tablets exploded in numbers. There were also two new tablet platforms (PlayBook’s OS and webOS on the TouchPad). A handful of Windows 7 tablets were on the MWC grounds too.
Here’s a quick summary of all those tablets… Read more »
Hot on the heels of yesterdays tease about Firefox 5, Chrome and Opera web browsers are venturing bravely into double-digit version numbers – Chrome 10 is finally available as a beta, and Opera is showing off version 11.10. Opera already has v11.01 as stable so the update is fairly minor.
