Samsung Focus S Windows Phone review

Posted by Admin Tuesday, December 20, 2011
The Samsung Focus S is one of the two new Windows Phone 7.5 smartphones for AT&T that succeed last year's singular Focus (the other model being the previously reviewed Focus Flash). Of the two, the Focus S is much more the spiritual successor to the Focus, and it has a number of upmarket features over the smaller Focus Flash. Where the Focus had a strong familial resemblance to the Galaxy S series of Android smartphones from last year, the Focus S is as close to a Windows Phone 7.5 version of the Galaxy S II as one can get.
The Pantech Pocket is a unique smartphone amidst a sea of look-a-likes. Featuring a 4:3 aspect ratio display (as opposed to the more common 16:10 or 16:9 seen on most smartphones), the Pocket looks almost like a pocket-sized tablet - likely where Pantech got its inspiration for the name of the device.
Without a doubt, the new Nitro HD for AT&T is LG's premier Android smartphone in the United States. It has a stellar spec sheet that includes 4G LTE data, a 4.5-inch 720p HD resolution display, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, and a 1080p HD video-capable 8 megapixel camera. It's also fairly thin, light, and attractive.
The Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and 8.2 tablets for Verizon Wireless take over where Motorola's original XOOM tablet left off. They both offer amazing 4G LTE data speeds, large displays, and a stealth black finish that has been updated to feel better in the hand.
It's regrettable that they also run Android 3.x Honeycomb, like the original XOOM tablet that they replace.

Nokia N9 vs. Nokia Lumia 800: Blue Comparison

Posted by Admin Friday, December 9, 2011

If it is quite difficult to compare two seemingly identical boxes, then the task becomes much easier by thinking what’s actually inside those boxes, for the content happens to be quite different when touched and tried on hand. The word is about Nokia’s twin brothers – the Nokia N9 and the Nokia Lumia 800. Both are born at nearly the same time (Nokia N9 in September 2011, Lumia 800 in November 2011), we can say even from the same genetic source, but the outcome went slightly different as to what they became. A little warning before proceeding: the word both in this review is going to be used twice or thrice more than usual due to already understandable reasons.

Nokia C7 Review

Posted by Admin

The Nokia C7 is the second device from Nokia coming with Symbian^3 operating system. The original name of the model used to be the Nokia C7-00, which was then officially cut to the Nokia C7. The handset is also known as the Nokia Astound. This device and the Nokia N8 simply have almost the same software package. The basic difference here is the camera and the design. In both cases the winner is the Nokia N8, coming with a 12 megapixel camera and a buttonless touch display. The customers will be required to pay way less for the Nokia C7 and this is where the situation will shift in favor of the Nokia C7.
For the first time Nokia is trying to show the camera emphasize is not the most important criterion for a smartphone. Interestingly, with the introduction of the Nokia Astound the manufacturer also decided to introduce its luxury version called the Nokia Oro. This handset comes at the price of  $1635. It’s made of 18 carat gold, sapphire crystals and hand wrapped leather featuring the same specs as the original device.

The Nokia 701 is the new business device from Nokia coming with the Symbian Belle. Earlier it was known as the Nokia Helen. Its design is very similar to that of the Nokia C7-00, but the specs of the device and the software are very different.

In addition to this, the Nokia 701 comes to be one of the first devices from Nokia using the latest version of codenaming.

Goodbye Mark Selby (and two other NFC related Nokia Execs jumps ship)

Posted by Admin Wednesday, December 7, 2011

When I read the title from IntoMobile that three top level NFC related Nokia execs were leaving, I feared one might have been Buttery voiced Nokia World MC, Mark Selby which may explain why we has missing this year.

ADER posted on to our tips page that another firmware has appeared on Navifirm for the Nokia N9. Currently PR1.1 is v20.2011.40-4.

Here’s an application that has had petitions before to bring to the Nokia platforms. It’s IMDb, the Internet Movie Database – find news on the films and those film stars. Being on a phone you have social location features to point you to cinemas and shows near you (a bit like a feature in #18, Poynt)

Nokia Drops the Bomb: Plans to Use Windows Phone as Main Platform

Posted by Admin Tuesday, December 6, 2011

Nokia dropped a bombshell announcement today.
Nokia dropped a bombshell announcement today.
It’s the beginning of a new era for Nokia: the company announced a “strategic partnership with Microsoft to build a global mobile ecosystem based on highly complementary assets.” That means that yes, Nokia will be adopting Windows Phone for future smartphones. But it’s more than that: the partnership means that Nokia will also integrate its current apps with Microsoft products, while Microsoft will bring its developer tools to the table.

The N9: It's not a Windows Phone.
The N9: It's not a Windows Phone.
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything really worthwhile on this blog. Then again, it’s been a long time since there’s been any worthwhile Nokia news. And so, after a four-month hiatus, it’s time again to look at one of Nokia’s latest phones: the oft-rumored N9.

Multi-tasking has been available to Android users for the longest time.  That doesn't mean it has evolved into a perfect feature, though.  In fact, I have never been satisfied with the way you're supposed to switch between apps -- it's clunky.  With Multi-Tasking Pro, it's come one step closer to an ideal experience.

NVIDIA Tegra Zone Launched

Posted by Admin

If you're using an Android device with a Tegra 2 chip providing muscle, you'll naturally want to put all that processing power to good use by running apps that make full use of it.  And you'll be able to find them easily with the NVIDIA Tegra Zone, a free Android app that curates and highlights applications that are optimized to perform at a high level with your dual-core chipset.

Much has been said about Android's less-than-desirable stock music player.  While serviceable, the software is cumbersome to manage for large music collection and there's little in the way of extra features to play with. 

iPhone 4S Review

Posted by Admin

To the surprise of most, the current gen iPhone didn't hit the market as the best hardware in  its category.  If anything, though, Apple has made a fortune in proving that the "biggest, fastest and most powerful" hardware doesn't always make for the most compelling product.  Does the iPhone 4S continue that trend?

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review

Leaked: Motorola Droid 4

Posted by Admin Friday, December 2, 2011

Waiting for the latest Moto Droid to drop?  While it's not yet official, the Motorola Droid 4 has shown up on leaks this week and it looks pretty sweet.

While the touchscreen slate form factor has emerged as the standard for today's smartphones, the Blackberry-style QWERTY candy bar remains a preferred design among a big segment of mobile workers.  And the Motorola Admiral offers one of the better devices for that specific crowd.

Nokia X2-02 Announced

Posted by Admin

Despite smartphones gaining more market share than ever, Nokia remains a strong entity in the feature phone department.  And their latest, the Nokia X2-02, likely makes that position stronger.
Coming under the music-minded X series, the handset comes with dedicated music keys, special sound processing that boasts "the clearest sound you’ll find at this price" and Play via Radio.  If you're not familiar with that last one, it's a feature that lets users record songs directly from the radio, as well as share playlists with your home system, car stereo or other phones.

Leaked: Motorola Droid 4 P

Posted by Admin

Waiting for the latest Moto Droid to drop?  While it's not yet official, the Motorola Droid 4 has shown up on leaks this week and it looks pretty sweet.
Design bears some similarities to the Droid Razr, although it's not quite as slim.  The extra thickness, of course, comes courtesy of the five-row slide-out keyboard, which looks a bit cramped based on the product images (or maybe it's just the angle).  We do love the white backlighting that appears all around each key, though.
Leaked details of the Motorola Droid 4 include a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen (960 x 540 resolution), an 8.0 megapixel camera (with 1080p video recording), a front-facing video cam, a 4G LTE radio and a 1,785mAh battery.  Processing is handled by a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU, paired with 1GB of RAM.

AT&T just announced a version of the Optimus LTE for their network.  Called the LG Nitro HD, it's the first smartphone in the carrier's roster to feature a screen capable of showing displays in full 720p.
