The Samsung Galaxy Y Duos S6102 is a rare beast – an Android smartphone with two SIM card slots. Dual-SIM is typical feature phone territory and it’s nice to get a break from that – with smartphones continuing to gain popularity, there should be a niche for devices like the Y Duos.
Based on the very popular Galaxy Y, the Y Duos S6102 comes from good stock. It’s actually slightly upgraded over the original Y and it’s not just because of the two SIM cards. Read more »
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 I8160 doubles on a lot of the specs of its predecessor. For instance, the CPU has an extra core, there is a second camera on board, more than twice the number of pixels on a bigger screen, along with extra RAM, built-in storage and so on.
The Ace 2 dropped by our office and while it can’t stay long, we’ll have enough time for a preview (it’s a pre-production unit anyway). But first things first, it’s time for a quick hands-on video. Read more »
As its name clearly suggests, the HTC Titan II is the rather quick sequel of the original Titan, whose sales began back in October.

Like we already mentioned above, the rest of the HTC Titan II specifications are identical with the ones, found in its predecessor. Read more »
The LTE sporting Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T could very well be one of the most important devices in the history of the Finnish company. Developed specifically with the lucrative U.S. market in mind, the Windows Phone handset will likely show the world if the marriage between Nokia and Microsoft is a success or, well… , you know what.
In terms of specifications, the newcomer does not differ a lot from its global sibling – the Nokia Lumia 800. Read more »
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is the Ice Cream Sandwich refresh of the original Tab 10.1. But it’s more than that really. Despite the specs sheet seems the same it turned out the new Tab 2 10.1 is based on TI OMAP chipset instead on the Tegra 2.
The design has a few new touches as well – a bit different framing and the huge stereo speaker grilles on both sides of the screen. Read more »

We did get a chance to spend some quality time with the HTC EVO 4G LTE during its announcement in New York City yesterday, so here go some of our initial impressions. As you probably know already, the Sprint Wireless’s LTE flagship is closely related to the HTC One X for AT&T.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 came by our office today and unlike its smaller namesake, left no doubts about its tablet nature. But it’s not just any tablet – the S Pen stylus proved to be very versatile and surprised us with its extensive functionality.
On the outside, the Note 10.1 may look quite similar to the Samsung’s other 10.1″ tablet – the Tab 2 10.1 – but there’s just enough difference to make the Note 10.1 the more desirable tablet. Read more »

There’s no arguing the Samsung I8530 Galaxy Beam is a pretty unique smartphone. In short, it’s a Galaxy R with a twist – a dual-core Android Gingerbread phone, with a 4.0 WVGA LCD screen and a 5MP camera. What turns heads though is the built-in projector – the Galaxy Beam is a pocketable movie theater or business presentation, depending on your needs.
We had some time to play with the Galaxy Beam and, as you could imagine, we dedicated most of it on the projector. Read more »

After all, the HTC Sense 3.6 flavored Android 4.0 ICS will find its way (it actually is already in some parts of the world) to the company’s dual-core Android lineup from last year. Therefore, if you happen to own a member of the aforementioned group of devices, read on to get an idea what will your phone’s interface look like after the major OS update. Read more »

The new iPad heating issues have been one of the hottest topics in the tablet realm over the past couple of days – opinions range from the heat being intolerable to it’s not a big deal. That’s why we decided to conduct a few tests ourselves and found out more about it.
We were aiming to answer two questions – how hot does the new iPad get in regular usage and what is causing the supposed overheating issues. So here’s what we did – we placed the new Apple slate alongside its iPad 2 predecessor and started checking out how the two would react to various challenges.
