Dual-SIM phones are still relatively rare and usually limited to the low-end, but the Samsung Galaxy S Duos takes after the Galaxy S III mini in terms of looks (though not in terms of specs, unfortunately).
Dual-SIM phones are usually bought when there are no good plans available – ones that offer enough talk time, texts and data. So, how long can the S Duos last if you need the second SIM for even more talking? Read more »

After taking the arcade racing genre by storm with the original Need for Speed Most Wanted back in 2005, EA rebooted the series this year and put the steering wheel in the able hands of Criterion Games, makers of the popular Burnout games as well as Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.
This time, however, the action won’t be limited to the big screen. A mobile version of the game has been released for iOS and Android and although it’s not exactly the same game as the console version, you will find similar races, cop chases and a great roster of cars in what promises to be one of the best racing games on the mobile platform.

While the jury is still out on the accuracy of these tests, they do help paint a picture of how well your future (or present) device will fare after hurtling towards the Earth at 9.81 m/s2.

Following the UK Court of Appeal ruling, Apple had to put a clear statement on its website saying that Samsung didn’t infringe on the iPad patents. And Apple did, but in a way that wasn’t what the judges really had in mind.

And that’s not what the court ordered. Read more »
