Veho Pebble Smartstick Emergency Charger Review @ TestFreaks
     Fri, Mar 29 2013 | 11:54A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dont you hate it when the battery on your mobile device dies during the course of the day and you realized you either forgot your charger or dont have anywhere to charge it? Today for review Ive got the Veho Pebble Smartstick Emergency Charger which is just like it sounds, a portable battery essentially to charge your devices in an emergency. Thats not exactly true I think as it doesnt really have to be an emergency to use it, you can use it anytime you need to top off the battery in your device. The Pebble is very small and portable and comes with a few different tips allowing you to charge most devices on the market today. The Pebble is something that personally I need as my kids love using my iPod Touch 4th Gen but its aging and the battery only lasts for a little over an hour, and that isnt much really. The Pebble allows my kids to keep using the iPod for more than what the battery normally allows. So read one to learn more.."

Posted by: STAFF
The dominance of the iPhone is waning. Apples stock prices are gradually dropping and more consumers are switching out their iPhones for more sophisticated and modern choices. As the prestige of owning an iPhone wears off, people are looking for new companies and innovations to help them decide on what smartphone to buy. Following is a list of the top 5 alternatives to the iPhone 5, ranging from phones with more power to phones designed from the ground up for the business person."

Rise Of The Phablet Is A Bigger Smartphone Better? @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Mar 25 2013 | 10:19A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First off, can we all agree that Phablet is a terrible name? A Smartphone with a big screen does not make a tablet. Second, lets examine what exactly a Phablet is. The difference between a large phone and a small tablet is that a small tablet will run (at least in theory) tablet optimized applications, whereas the large phone is stuck with phone apps. The question is how big is too big for a phone?"

Republic Wireless and the Motorola DEFY XT Tested
     Fri, Mar 22 2013 | 12:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When something sounds too good to be true, we’re as skeptical as anyone, which is why we raised an eyebrow at Republic Wireless last year when the company pledged to offer unlimited mobile service--that’s unlimited talk, text, and data--for just $19 a month, without any contracts. Compare that number to current wireless offerings and Republic Wireless' proposed $19 plan seems like a total impossibility. However, Republic Wireless held to its promise, announcing two large-scale rounds of beta testing last year and finally offering its absurdly low-priced plans to all late last fall. The only catch to Republic Wireless’ service is that users are currently limited to just a single phone option, the Motorola DEFY XT, and the phone isn't cheap...

Mid-range smartphone round-up
     Thu, Mar 21 2013 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We looked at mid-range smartphones with a resolution of at least 800x480 pixels and a sticker price of no more than 300 euros. Smartphones have evolved to a point where you can find some very interesting models in this segment. The majority of the phones in this test have screens of an acceptable quality, only the Xtreamer Aiki has an old-fashioned TN panel where you barely see anything from an angle. The other phones have good viewing angles.

Silver Aluminium Case for iPhone 4 & 4S Review
     Tue, Mar 19 2013 | 12:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Metalicus is one of the cases from Cygnett which sport a killer look, is quite affordable and comes in three different color variants. The case is, however, attenuating the GSM signal and occasionally we have also seen WiFi signal drops.

Cygnett Aviator iPhone 4/4S Case Review

The Aviator is another cool looking iPhone 4/4S case from Cygnett, built from two separate components which allow the phone to be dockable, by only removing the bottom component. The case is available in two color flavors (silver and blue) and can be found online for about 31 Euros.

Intel Clover Trail+, Advancing Atom For Smartphones and Tablets
     Sun, Mar 17 2013 | 12:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, Intel is keeping on track for execution of their roadmap plan in the mobile space, with the release of their follow-on to Medfield, code-named Clover Trail+. Clover Trail, as you’ll remember, is powering many a Windows 8 tablet these days. Intel's latest Atom-based SoC is a more natural fit here, with the intrinsic advantages of being able to run full X86 compatible software on a tablet or convertible device, while still offering strong battery life performance. That said, Clover Trail+, Intel’s new performance and feature-optimized version of Clover Trail for the smartphone and tablet market, has that same long row to hoe versus incumbents, at least in the highly competitive handset arena. What’s more than interesting this time around is that Clover Trail+ seems to really have the chops (at least on paper) to keep pace with, and even exceed, certain performance characteristics of current, best-of-class ARM-based architectures that have been so dominant in smartphone designs thus far. And on the power consumption front, Intel is claiming their long-beloved “HUGI” (Hurry-Up and Get Idle) approach to clock gating will afford them a platform power advantage like no other smartphone architecture on the market current. A tall order. Big claims. Is Intel just getting warmed up?

Apple iPod Nano review: generation lost
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 12:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As usually is the case with Apple, design and a user-friendly experience aren't cheap, and there are other products with more features and freedom. Often Apple is able to justify the high price with innovative features or hardware, but with the new iPod Nano that's not the case in our opinion.

Sony Xperia Z vs. LG Optimus G Pro vs. HTC One vs. Samsung Galaxy S4 preview
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona opened its doors to the public today, but many manufacturers had already unveiled their high-end models for 2013 prior to the event. Sony, HTC and LG have been showing off their flagship models to the media in recent weeks. We've gotten sneakpeeks of the Sony Xperia Z, HTC One and LG Optimus G Pro so far, and Sony’s Xperia Z is even available already. Samsung has been holding off, but on March 14 the Galaxy S IV will be officially introduced at an event in New York.

Samsung Galaxy Camera Review: Taking Pictures With Android
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 5:05P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sharing photos with one's friends and family is a common, everyday occurrence. Instagram has gained over 100 million photo sharing users in just two years, and this is just one of many outlets people use to share photos with the people they love. While sharing pictures taken with your smartphone is easy and convenient since you can upload and share while on the go, the picture quality you get from a smartphone isn't quite on the same level as a standalone digital camera, with a larger sensor and better optics. Connected cameras such as the Samsung Galaxy Camera promise the best of both worlds for users who want to share their photos right away but who also want the image quality that only comes from a standalone digital camera...

Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we have a "creative" game that stretches our editor's artistic ability. The game in question is Draw a Stickman: EPIC and it's a different story-based game that is a mix of Scribblenauts and League of Legends... sort of. Take a look and you'll quickly see why it is our App Pick of the Week!

Tablets of 2013: Nexus vs. Surface vs. iPad
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 4:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The tablet market doesn’t look very different than it did a year ago from the perspective of who’s doing well and who’s not. Perhaps the most exciting developments came towards the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 from the usual big guys: Google released the Nexus 10 and updated the Nexus 7, Apple launched a smaller and cheaper iPad mini, while Microsoft went all in with the Surface RT and Pro. As usual, we've compiled a comparative table with what we consider are the best options either currently available or announced so far, complete with metascores from our Product Finder engine and review links.

Nokia Lumia 820 review: Windows Phone 8 runner-up
     Wed, Mar 13 2013 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lumia 820 offers the same performance and software as the Lumia 920 at a more affordable price, and you can also use it with gloves on. The phone is smaller and lighter, but we do miss the higher resolution for the display and the image stabilizer for the camera.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
