How does the iPhone 4 pixel density stand in comparison?

by 52 comments

Apple was very keen to brag about the iPhone 4 high-res screen and for a very good reason. From having one of the lowest pixel densities on the market in the previous generations, the iPhone is now in the lead. The question remains how much of a lead does it have over its rivals and I decided to do a brief comparison to give you an idea about that.

HTC EVO 4G starts breaking sales records from launch day

by 700 comments

Last Friday was a busy day for the employees at Sprint stores – it was the day when the mighty HTC EVO 4G hit their shelves. The Android-powered flagship has single-handedly improved the carrier’s 1 day sales record – and quite comfortably at that.

Sprint’s previous launch day bestsellers were Palm Pre and Samsung Instinct, but the EVO 4G (previously codenamed as HTC Supersonic) managed to sell 3 times as many units and even caused temporary shortages of the device at some of the 22 000 sales locations. Read more »

We won’t see a Moorestown tablet like this one at least another six months

by 25 comments

Tablets are a hot commodity these days and it seems almost every company has a prototype on display at this year’s Computex. Unfortunately, there are only few tablets available on the market despite the huge demand. It’s like all hardware companies either totally missed this wave of touchscreen tablet love or manufacturers simply lack the optimized OS needed for creating a compelling tablet computer.

Whatever may be the case, the Intel’s Moorestown platform currently seems as one of the most promising upcoming tablet solutions. The Quanta Redvale tablet shown off by Intel at Computex is a living proof.

It’s rare that I come upon a seriously impressive video ad such as this one. I won’t waste your time trying to recap, I’ll just say those are some wicked foosball tricks.

Oh, I also think I saw a Nokia N8 parading around at some point, but I’m not really sure. I’m too busy learning the new moves.

Firefox Home will soon bring your desktop Firefox stuff to your iPhone, iPad

by 632 comments

No, Firefox web browser is not likely to appear as a native iPhone application anytime soon. But Mozilla are already working on a native iPhone app that syncs your browsing history, bookmarks, and opened tabs. Meet the Firefox Home for iPhone.


I’ve been using various workarounds to sync my currently opened tabs with my iPhone. I’ve tried saving those pages to ReadItLater. I’ve also tried bookmarking the webpages and later on accessing those through the Xmarks website – the service I use for bookmark syncing. But none of these are as convenient as the upcoming Firefox Home.

Samsung I9000 Galaxy S manages 7:25 hours of video playback, puts critics to shame

by 325 comments

The results from the Samsung I9000 Galaxy S dedicated video playback battery test are out and they might be quite surprising to some. A lot has been said and written about the Android handsets poor battery life recently but obviously things aren’t as bad as they are made out to be.

Our testing procedure was pretty standard: we charged the Galaxy S until it said full and looped a standard definition XviD video with the screen brightness set to 50% until the battery level fell to 10% (beyond that point the handset automatically turns off the video player and doesn’t allow restarting it). And in the case of the Samsung Android flagship that took some good 7 hours and 25 minutes.
