Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc S benchmarked

Does the world need a new XPERIA Arc? Sony Ericsson seems to think so, and hence the XPERIA Arc S has broken cover.

Iconia Tab A100 Review

Iconia Tab A100 Review

It is true that Acer only a few months ago brought us one of the first round of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets In the Iconia Tab A500, a 10-inch tablet with a thin metal backing attached to one of the cheapest prices on the market. What we've got now is only the second 7-inch tablet on the market and the first one to carry any version of Honeycomb. Furthermore, this A100 7-inch Acer tablet is the world's first Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet, 3.2 being the first tablet-oriented Google mobile OS made for tablets of under 10 inches in size. This tablet is not meant to be the thinnest tablet on the market, and neither this nor the original Samsung Galaxy Tab 7-inch tablet are likely to be winning the tablet fashion show, but what we DO have here is a nice little "tween" sized Android device toting NVIDIA's Tegra 2 dual-core processor - will it carve its own piece out of the tablet market pie due to it's relatively unique nature?

The IdeaPad K1 is one of the first two Android tablets to come from Lenovo. It’s a competitive 10.1-inch Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablet with almost all the specs you’d anticipate from a slate equipped with the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, but attempts to standout with its own individual style, unique interface features, and a price tag that’s $100 less than its rivals.

HTC Wildfire S for T-Mobile Review

Say Hello to the smallest offering I've seen in a while from HTC, this little device is small enough that anyone can carry it no matter how small the hands are.

The Wildfire S comes in a few different colors, its an amazingly great device for a mid-range offering and it's only like $79 or so over on T-Mobile -- interested yet?
