The Samsung Galaxy S III mini stops by our office for a second time – the first time we did a preview and we’ll do a full review now. Before we start, we put it in front of our camera and give you a quick reminder of what the S III mini offers.
In a “Honey, I shrunk the kids” moment, Samsung took the Galaxy S III and created a mini version of it, dropping the screen size from the pocket-busting 4.8” to the much more manageable 4”. Read more »
After telling you all about the greatest deals we could find in the Google Play store yesterday, today we thought it’s high time to scour the Apple iOS AppStore and bring you the best deals this week. I have the honor of taking you through the titles that had their prices slashed today or a day or two ago.
The links I’ve prepared point to the online version of the US AppStore, but usually you can find the same app in your own regional stores at (relatively) the same discount. Ok, let’s not waste any more time and get to the lists. Read more »
As you’ve probably learned by now, today is Black Friday in the US, but Amazon is bringing some of the price slashing action to its UK store as well. In fact, the company has been doing so the entire past week, but now they caught our eye by cutting the price of its 7″ Kindle Fire by £30.
Now you can buy the last-gen 7″ 8GB Kindle Fire for £99 (with special offers) or £109, if you don’t want to have sponsored screensavers on your device. Read more »
As expected, Apple Stores throughout the world now offer a special sale on many items and it’s valid only today. Some of the stores were down last time I checked, but I’m sure patience will be rewarded.
Currently some of the most popular Apple devices cost roughly 8% off. That means you can get the latest iPad for about 40 US dollars/euro less than the regular price.
The latest iPod Touch can be had for around 30 US dollars/euro less and finally, most of the MacBooks are down by 100 US dollars/euro as well. Read more »

Samsung has announced a Premium Suite update for the Galaxy Note 10.1, which will be provided with the upcoming Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update whenever it is released. They have now released a lengthy video that shows these new features in action.
Most of the features in the Premium Suite extend upon the existing features in the Note 10.1. For example, the multi-window app functionality now lets you run several apps simultaneously and even increase their size. The Air View feature, borrowed from the Note II, lets you hover over content in default Samsung apps and preview them. The clipping feature lets you cut images from web pages and send them or add to documents. Read more »
The Nokia Lumia 820 is our first brush with the Finnish company’s next generation of Windows Phone handsets. It has a relatively small battery (1650mAh), smaller than even HTC’s Windows Phone 8X juice pack. And that one certainly didn’t impress us much with its battery life.
The Lumia 820 has a dual-core Krait processor running at 1.5GHz inside (like most other WP8 phones) so we don’t expect this to make any difference, but that 4.3” AMOLED screen probably will. Read more »
Today, we welcome the third installment in this series of Nokia Lumia 920 torture tests. This time around, it finally meets its proverbial maker.

Samsung is finally reseeding the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy Tab 8.9. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 didn’t gain much traction though I have always considered this screen size to provide the best combination of portability and big-screen user experience.
Back in July, Samsung started seeding an Ice Cream Sandwich update to most of its tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 was on the list but the update for it was stopped in its tracks due to some pending issues.
Now, we hear, the updates are seeding again. But seriously? An Ice Cream Sandwich update in the end of December? Read more »
