HTC One X Review

HTC One X Review

HTC needed to hit reset on its smartphone strategy. Lulled, perhaps, by several years of leading the Android device market, 2011 brought an incredibly strong push by Samsung and a growing mismatch between the agile software users desired and the bloated, over-stylized interface of HTC Sense. The HTC One X - and the One Series it leads - is the first of the company's attempt to reclaim its former position, a Tegra 3 toting powerhouse with a big screen, boastful camera and slick design. Still with the specter of the Samsung Galaxy S III on the near horizon, not to mention Apple's iPhone 5, the One X needs to do more than storm the spec sheet if it's to make the impact HTC requires. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

GeoSociety for iPhone Review : a perfect Pokemon alternative

GeoSociety for iPhone Review : a perfect Pokemon alternative

Recently we've heard a whole lot about the epic release and defamation of Pokemon Yellow for iPhone, a game that turned out to be a scam and was thusly removed from the market. Because this game became so popular it reached the top 10 in the iTunes App Store before it was removed from the market, we decided to go on a hunt for the best Pokemon alternative on the market instead. Turns out there's one that stands out above the best - not necessarily because it commands its own genre, but because it replicates the original Pokemon game so precisely!

Skyrim demoed on Transformer Prime with Splashtop

Without so much of a hitch in the graphics, NVIDIA showed off the Transformer Prime running the app Splashtop, it running a desktop through its display and, believe it or not, the massively popular game Skyrim. Splashtop will certainly gain a whole lot of bonus users after this, you can bet - that and the Transformer Prime without a doubt. The PC renders the graphics, the Transformer Prime shows off the game, you play it.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 sets new sales record on launch day

The numbers are finally in from sales of the new Call of Duty game Modern Warfare 3, and as predicted, its Tuesday launch broke the record for opening day sales.

Apple Fall 2011: Worst Case Scenario (for Apple’s Competitors)

Apple Fall 2011: Worst Case Scenario (for Apple’s Competitors)

In my last column, I discussed what I consider a fairly plausible, if unsurprising, set of expectations for Apple this fall. I called it a Best Case Scenario (for Apple’s Competitors). Click through to read it, or if you need the Cliff’s Notes version, that would be:

1. The existing iPhone 4 remains on the market or is replaced with an 8 GB version.
2. Apple introduces the iPhone 5 with a larger display, dual core processor, and camera spec bump. And it’s thinner.
3. Apple updates the iPod line with new colors, tweaked designs, and a smaller nano that is designed to work well as a watch.

Why the iPhone 4S will be Free

Why the iPhone 4S will be Free

Here's the skinny: the following information is a set of educated guesses, analyzed facts turned into what I feel will be exactly what Apple will release at their next major keynote event as far as mobile devices go. First, I do not think that the device will have a "5" in the title. Although it's been an eternity in human time since the last iPhone release, that being the iPhone 4 for Verizon, in Apple time it's only been nearly enough time before the next massively successful release. What I believe here instead is that all four of the biggest carriers in the USA will get the newest version of the iPhone inside October of 2011 and that this device will hold more water than just hardware improvements.

Amazon, Samsung, HTC… who’ll be webOS’ new suitor?

Amazon, Samsung, HTC… who’ll be webOS’ new suitor?

HP's decision to amputate its webOS hardware line and attempt to tourniquet the cash gush has left the platform's future in the air. The TouchPad and Pre lines may be dead in the water, but HP has made it clear that the company is "not walking away from webOS" but instead, according to developer relations VP for the platform Richard Kerris, intends to "explore the best hardware partner for it." Who, though, might be in the market for a plucky platform yet to find a manufacturer who can match it with appealing hardware? With the mobile segment in its current flux, there are some big names out there who could well be interested.
