I bet every tablet-loving gadget fan has been anticipating this one from day one. Well, most of you, anyway. Ever since the first “What’s your tab life?” teaser hit the web, we have been waiting to see what this new Samsung tablet is all about.
Well now that we are only a few hours away from its official announcement we can confirm most of its key specs. Now the 8.9″ display is an obvious one for the Galaxy Tab, but the really great WXGA resolution (that’s 1280×800 pixels, in case you are wondering) comes as a nice bonus. This’s 30% more pixels than the iPad 2 has and the same as its bigger brother – Galaxy Tab 10.1. Read more »
We should see the latest and greatest Mozilla browser launch officially later today. And as the tradition goes the company has made it available for download through its FTP server a day early for the most eager among you.
So if you want to give the final version of Firefox 4 a try you can do that right now. Read more »
For such a minor manufacturer Archos certainly brings plenty of innovation to the table. The Archos 70 and 101 tablets were pretty exciting already with their slim waistlines and remarkable feature to price ratio, but it seems the best is still to come.
The company has just released some details about its upcoming ninth generation tablets and those look like some pretty powerful beasts. For one, they will be packing 1.6 GHz dual-core Cortex A9 CPUs, which is 60% better than what the current best (think iPad 2 and XOOM) have to offer. Read more »
Nokia has fixed the Mail for Exchange synchronization issues (but not this one it seems) that were plaguing the Nokia N8 (and the other Symbian^3 phones too) with a voluntary software update. This is the second Symbian^3 update (this one was the first) – and it’s still not the one we were all waiting for.
Still, this update should save a lot of frustration for heavy corporate email users (mind you, Gmail can also use Exchange ActiveSync as an option)… Read more »
The HTC Incredible S is the first smartphone with rotating button inscriptions. Sure, it’s not a big deal, but our geeky minds just wouldn’t let us sleep until we found how they did it.
Well luckily our insomnia was short-lived as we managed to get to the bottom of this quite easily. Read more »
The Google Nexus S is headed to Sprint in CDMA form with 4G connectivity (WiMAX) in the bag – which warrants a name change to Nexus S 4G. The phone should arrive in spring packing unmodified Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Cell radio aside, the Google Nexus S 4G has pretty much the same specs – it’s a bit thicker (11.2mm vs. 10.9mm) but that’s about it… Read more »
The iPad 2 has finally settled in our office. Since the performance is the key feature on the new iPad we were curious how faster the iPad 2 is. The only way to see that is to put the first and second gen tablets head to head and see what happens.
We preloaded both iPads with absolutely the same content, enabled the multi-touch gestures, closed all active apps from the multi-tasking bar and started tapping some icons.

Apple announced the death to MobileMe as we knew it a few weeks ago and speculations about the future of the service haven’t stopped ever since. This latest rumor just came in and it says MobileMe is going to become free and get deep iOS integration.
The iLounge source claims that Apple will turn MobileMe into a free cloud-based service for photos, videos, and music service, which sounds pretty cool to us. Read more »
LetsTalk has just made you an offer that’s pretty hard to refuse. The LTE-packing HTC Thunderbolt will be available for a reduced price of $175 this weekend. And unlike the $180 deal that Amazon is offering the phone is in-stock here.
Of course a contract is required and if you fail to fulfill at least half of it you will also need to refund LetsTalk the discount you are getting now. However if you are on the lookout for the ultimate high-speed internet on your smartphone, the $175 Thunderbolt seems like a deal too good to miss. Just have in mind that the offer is only valid through the weekend so you should make up your mind quickly.
If you decide to get it you can do so by following this link.
Bargain-hunters please proceed this way. AT&T has just started offering the previous-generation Apple tablet for a substantially reduced price. You can get the 64GB Wi-Fi + 3G Apple iPad for $530, which is good $200, cheaper than its previous price. The 16GB 3G-enabled version is also discounted at $430.

The company has just released a short video dedicated to their new flagship, explaining what they were trying to achieve with it. Read more »
Yesterday’s report by Blaze.io claimed that the Android Browser is on average 50% faster than the iOS browser. Now Apple have this to say to Blaze: “Nuh-Uh”. Blaze posted an update, saying they are looking into the issue Apple pointed out.
It turns out that the embeddable web browser in iOS 4.3, the one used inside the custom app that performed the tests automatically, isn’t as good as the stand-alone Safari browser, missing several key performance updates… Read more »
Hold your horses – it’s not a 3D version of the insanely popular game just yet. What we have here is a 3D promo video that Rovio developed in collaboration with Nokia. However it is nicely done and pretty funny so you won’t regret sparing some time to check it out.
The spectacle happened at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas and it shows what happens when those pesky green pigs steal an N8 from the birds’ nest. You guessed that right – the birds get angrier then ever.
Now sit back and enjoy the video. Read more »
The Android army got another wave of new reinforcements over the past few months and we are now welcoming one of the best-prepared among them to our office. The HTC Incredible S is the certainly the most exciting of the five smartphones announcements by the Taiwanese at the MWC. It wasn’t lucky enough to get the Gingerbread treatment, but Froyo isn’t too bad either and you get the most powerful hardware.
Plus the HTC Incredible S adds a welcome diversity to the company’s designs portfolio. We were getting somewhat bored with the HTC smartphones designs recently, so the edgy back comes as a breath of fresh air. Read more »
Apple iPad 2 has just landed in our office. As usual we took it for a quick spin, played a bit with it and made some pictures and videos. We are ready to show you all of that right now.
The iPad 2 is currently available only in the USA and will make its European premiere in a few days. Quite expectedly, the tablet is already out of stock everywhere in the States and the online orders ship or will ship with tremendous delay. Read more »
