Among all the non-sense product videos that come out these days, the new video for the upcoming Acer Iconia Tab A200 comes as a breath of fresh air.
Instead of shooting it through a cake, taking a dig at the competition or doing some other weird stuff, the video shows people doing things with the tablet that they usually do. Such as watching videos or images on the device or by connecting it to a display, reading ebooks, video calling, etc. Read more »
We’ve just witnessed the first taste of DJ Deadmau5 kicking off what should be an absolute spectacle as a visual extravaganza is set to take place on the south side of Millbank Tower, London for Nokia’s Lumia Live event.
As you’ll see from the photos, the crowds are already five rows thick lining the edge of the river and mysterious projections have already started to appear on the side of the adjacent tower. Read more »
We have another Android device with a slide-out QWERTY complete our battery test. Unlike the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro however, the Samsung Captivate Glide for AT&T packs an extra CPU core and an energy efficient, 4″ Super AMOLED screen.
The Captivate Glide is powered by the same 1650mAh battery as the Galaxy S II which we recently tested. With a screen from an older generation and a different CPU (the Captivate Glide packs an NVIDIA Tegra II), we were quite curious to put the droid through its paces. Read more »
Google has brought a key update to the Android Market website, making it compatible with all devices that have the app installed. That means that from now on you can push apps to your Nook Color, Kindle Fire or whatever other smartphone and tablet with side-loaded Android Market you have.
The move falls nicely in line with the Android open nature and, in fact, one can’t help but wonder what took them so long. But anyway, the support is all there now and it looks like a win-win move for Google. Read more »

Now, that was quick. A cure for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus volume control issues was found just one week after we first heard of them. However, it’s a MoDaCo forum member, rather than Samsung we have to thank for it.
The fix is pretty easy to apply – if you want to try it, you should follow the source link for the quick tutorial and the necessary files. As usual with such 3rd-party fixes this is a proceed-at-your-own-risk kind of deal. Read more »

Photographer Markus Thompson came across a Canon EOS 1000D off the end of a wharf in Deep Bay, BC while he was scuba diving. Apparently, the camera was lying there for over a year now, since August 2010 to be precise. However, upon closer inspection, Thompson discovered that the SD card inside was still in working condition.
The SD card in question had pictures of a family vacation of some fire fighter in British Columbia and so Thompson decided to put social networking to test and find the owner to return him his images. For this he turned to Google+. Read more »
A Windows Phone flagship from Korea is on our hands. The Samsung Focus S for AT&T Wireless is closely related to the original Galaxy S II – the two top dogs share design and quite a few internal parts.
The Samsung Focus S packs a Read more »
You may remember the DROID RAZR teaser ad that was released before the launch of the device where a bullet slices through a lot of things.
Well, apparently, it wasn’t cool enough for the people at Rogers who created one of their own. Except this time, they used the phone itself instead of a bullet. Read more »
As if we didn’t have enough reasons to buy a PlayStation Vita already here comes another one. Eurogamer is reporting that with the help of a firmware update on the PS3, it will be able to stream all its games wirelessly to a PSVita. As with the PSP before, you will be able to do it from anywhere in the world as long as your PS3 and PSVita are connected to the internet.
But there is a small catch to this. The games will be played at a lower resolution, that of the Sony PSP, which is 480 x 272, which is 1/4th the resolution of the PSVita’s 960 x 544 display. Read more »
Proud owners of a new Nokia N9 are probably more than happy with its unique, quirky and individual OS MeeGo, but for some, that just isn’t enough.
This unusual looking lime green N9 has been demoed on video showcasing its ability to switch between not just one, but seven different mobile operating systems. Of course it’s not some special edition or in house unit leaked from the Finns but in fact a peculiar shanzhai/’Nok-off’ straight from the back streets of China. Read more »
Developers of the popular game Fruit Ninja have announced that the recently launched spinoff called ‘Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots’ will now be available on Android starting November 28.
However, there is a catch. The game will only be available on the Amazon Appstore, which is great for those in the US but not so much for others. It will be available for free on the first day and for $0.99 thereafter. Read more »
