New Apple iPad 3 RevieNew Apple iPad 3 Review
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Apple iPad is finally here and we’ve got the 16GB Wi-Fi version to review for you. The new Apple iPad features the Apple A5X chip, which provides a dual-core processor and quad-core graphics. As well as these, the battery has also been improved to bring the same 10 hours of battery life, which we saw on the iPad two, whilst using the brand new Retina Display. However, if you’ve already got an iPad 2 is the upgrade worth it? Let’s find out…

A No Holds Barred Evaluation of the New iPad:
     Tue, Mar 20 2012 | 12:27P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apple called its first iPad tablet "magical," as if owning one would turn flatulence into a flowery fragrance and unlock the mystery of double complete rainbows. Instead it entranced millions of people into buying one, even though it lacked basic amenities like expandable storage, built-in cameras, and Flash support (back when people still cared about Flash). This year Tim Cook took to the stage to introduce the world to Apple's "new iPad" -- not the iPad 2S, iPad 3, or iPad HD, just iPad -- with what Apple is billing as a "resolutionary" upgrade. One of Apple's big reveals is the Retina display. It was long rumored the new iPad would ship with a higher resolution display, and Apple made it happen by packing 3.1 million pixels into the same 9.7-inch panel, now with a 2048x1536 screen resolution, a big upgrade from the iPad 2's 1024x768 display and even beyond the boundaries of your Full HD 1080p giant screen TV. No small feat...

Don't Expect Better Browser Performance from New iPad
     Tue, Mar 20 2012 | 12:17P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apple has been keen to talk about the improved graphical capabilities of the new iPad, with its new display and quad core graphics, but little has been said about the new device's processing power. Is the A5X chip in the new iPad more powerful than the iPad 2's A5 for general computing? The answer appears to be 'no' as the new iPad achieves the same score as the iPad 2 in our Peacekeeper browser benchmark suggesting the CPU performance of the two devices is near identical.

Peacekeeper is an HTML5 based browser performance test that can be used to measure and compare the performance of any browser on any Internet capable device, from desktops and notebooks, to tablets and smartphones. What's more, as a device's browser performance is strongly linked to the power of its CPU, Peacekeeper offers a straightforward way to compare the performance of competing devices regardless of differences in operating system.

The press release below not only includes Peacekeeper scores for the new iPad but also a range of other popular tablets. If you are curious to know more about Peacekeeper, check out the FAQ http://peacekeeper.futuremark.com/faq.action.

Tablets of 2012: The New iPad, Current and Upcoming Alternatives
     Mon, Mar 19 2012 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's no secret that tablet makers are having a hard time competing with Apple in this still nascent market. In fact, the iPad is selling so well that it surpassed the number of PCs shipped by any individual PC manufacturer over the last quarter of 2011. We've compiled a comparative table with what we consider are the best tablets either currently available or announced so far. We've also included metascores from our Product Finder engine and review links to help you dig deeper and narrow down your next purchase.

RIM BlackBerry PlayBook (2012) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Mar 18 2012 | 6:43P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
RIM`s much-maligned tablet computer, the BlackBerry PlayBook, is finally a viable choice, thanks to its heavily revised OS and a massive price drop. The PlayBook`s user interface is beautiful, graceful, and operates with a simplicity that rivals that of the Apple iPad 2 and bests current Android tablets like the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime. The tablet is also much less expensive than before, starting at just $199 for 16GB."

Samsung Galaxy Note Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 3:49P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve got the Samsung Galaxy Note to review for you today. Samsung say that it`s the Ultimate on-the-go device and to say that it is powerful is probably the biggest understatement this year. The Galaxy Note sports a gigantic 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and takes stunning photos and video with its 8MP Full HD 1080p camera.* ** * **"

Samsung Galaxy Note 5.3-Inch Android
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yeah, it’s pretty mega. The first reaction that you’re likely going to get from just about anyone about the Samsung Galaxy Note is that it’s huge. It looks like Samsung has taken the idea of the superphone and blown it up to even more epic proportions, but was that really the right move? And is the Galaxy Note more of a smartphone or is it more like a tablet?

Samsung Galaxy Note Smartphone Review
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While many of today's better smartphones offer dual-core processors and 1GB of RAM, alongside plenty of onboard storage, one of the easiest differentiating points between smartphones today has become the screen--size, resolution, and screen technology are all considerations. Samsung is pushing the former limits of smartphone screen sizes with the introduction of the new Samsung Galaxy Note. This smartphone offers one of the largest screens we've seen from a phone yet – 5.3 inches. In addition to being large, it is also a gorgeous display which uses Super AMOLED technology and offers a resolution of 1280x800...

[Tech ARP] Apple To Re-Enable 3G Switch In iPhone 4S
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 10:44A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fast forward to 16th December 2011 and the launch of the Apple iPhone 4S. I was one of the first to upgrade to the iPhone 4S due to an almost-dead Home button on my iPhone 3GS. But almost immediately, I noticed a big problem - like the Dopod 595, the iPhone 4S won`t allow me to disable the 3G network! The call would randomly drop and I would get a Call Failed notice, and the signal would drop to nothing and the iPhone starts searching for the Maxis network. It takes a minute or two before it would reconnect and allow me to make another call. Needless to say, it`s not only frustrating but is also costing me money in extra calls. After complaining to Maxis countless times, I was able to discuss this problem with their engineers. During one of our conversations recently, their engineer told me that they have been in touch with Apple about my problem, and one of the solutions Apple suggested was for me to wait for the upcoming iOS 5.1 update. In today`s update, we look at the changes in iOS 5.1 and see it solves the call dropping issue with 3G networks."

Nokia Lumia 710 Windows Phone Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Recently Nokia have had somewhat of a makeover and having received the Lumia 710 all the nostalgic memories of the good times I had with Nokia came flooding back. So I am slowing things down with the Samsung Galaxy S2 and going with the Nokia Lumia 710 for a while, seeing how things work out... running on Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, who could resist?"

Android Tablet and Keyboard Dock Review
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When we first heard about the best name ever for a tablet PC, or possibly any component, we had visions of a robotic looking blue and red case... sadly, well kind of, this proved not to be and instead Asus released a sleek looking update to the original Transformer that we reviewed last year. The Prime is one of the world's first Android tablets with a quad-core processor and is running Android 4.0 and today we have one on our test bench for review."

Hands On With the New iPad @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:10P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apple didn`t actually need to release an iPad to stay on top of the tablet game. The company dominates the tablet market; its top competitor, Google, has been doing a notoriously poor job of cultivating third-party apps for its tablets. The new iPad model has a Retina display, an improved processor, 4G LTE connectivity and more."

Choiix Wake Up Folio @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Finally decided to drop the cash on an iPad 2 did you? Well if you made the investment you are going to want to protect it. When I bought my wife an iPad a couple of weeks ago, the first thing I went looking for was a case. Cooler Master presented the opportunity to review their Choiix branded ?Wake Up Folio? which would provide the iPad something in the way of protection. The Wake Up Folio comes in a variety of colors to choose from."

Griffin Beacon for Android @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 11:59A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have too many remotes, I?ve got seven of them for my home theater system, that?s just too many and it can get confusing at times. I need a universal remote, but I?ve yet to find one that works with everything I own. Today for review I have a product from Griffin called the Beacon and it?s basically a universal remote, but it works with Android devices. Yes you can control your TV, Cable or Blu-ray player with your phone or tablet. It sounds like a great idea in theory, but is it a great product? I have to say I?m leaning towards yes, but it?s not quite perfect yet? "

We have just posted up our 21th App Pick of the Week and this time we get our game on with The Sims FreePlay.  If you missed the $0.10 App Week, you`ve got a chance to get and play The Sims for free anyway.  In some ways this game is better than the paid version so make sure you take a look and see what you think!"

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.
