iPad 2 : an Apple 2011 Retrospective

iPad 2 : an Apple 2011 Retrospective

The past 365 days have been, without a doubt, the Year of the iPad 2, and as you're about to see, this includes more than just great sales and undeniable attention from both consumers and developers the same. It all started in March as the Apple iPad 2 went on sale. Of course we pre-struck with an early What should I get guide and a few reviews of the device itself by our head writers. We had rather interesting (and telling) results in a poll from March asking if people would be buying an iPad 2, and an article also all the way back in March foretold much on how it's so hard to compete with the iPad. Then the new year brought fourth an event of giant proportions. Behold the 2011 year in the most omnipotent tablet on the market.

Android Gingerbread on over half of devices, as ICS challenge begins

Google and its Android manufacturing partners have finally managed to get the majority of devices in the wild up to date with Gingerbread... just in time for them to be outdated again thanks to Ice Cream Sandwich. According to the latest platform distribution stats, 2.3.x is now found on 50.6-percent of all Android devices - or at least those which accessed the Android Market in the fourteen days prior to December 1 - up from 43.9-percent last month.

ASUS Padfone: Twice as appealing or doubly-dumb?

ASUS Padfone: Twice as appealing or doubly-dumb?

Maybe it was too many Transformers toys when I was younger, or because I have a frustrated engineer inside me, but I - like plenty of others - can't take my eyes off the ASUS Padfone. The new tablet/smartphone hybrid, fresh (after a leak or two) to Computex 2011 this morning, taps into a geeky, childish "slot this gadget into that gadget and make it better overall" mindset that also left us jonesing for an ATRIX after CES. Question is, after the lust fades, does the reality the Padfone offers actually bear up?

Novatel Expedite E362 LTE modem gets Verizon 4G approval: Next stop XOOM?

Novatel Wireless has become the first modem manufacturer to get its embedded LTE module certified by Verizon Wireless for use on the carrier's growing 4G LTE network, with the Expedite E362 also offering backward compatibility to 2G/3G GSM and CDMA networks. Interestingly, as well as working with various flavors of Windows, the miniPCI modem also supports Android (from Froyo to Honeycomb), meaning this could well end up being the LTE card that slots into Motorola's XOOM 4G.

Windows Phone: The Next Six Months

Windows Phone: The Next Six Months

Today, Windows Phone 7 turned six. Six months, that is, counted from the October 21 2010 release of the first batch of Windows Phone handsets. It's a big day for the platform, too; not only a retail milestone, but an early inking of the deal between Microsoft and Nokia which will see the Finnish phone giant bet its smartphone fortunes. So, where next for Windows Phone, and will Nokia's input - and the "billions of dollars" Microsoft will be pushing its way - help it gain all-important market share?

Nokia Windows Phone deal final; Q1 2011 sees sinking smartphone share

Nokia has announced its Q1 2011 financial results, along with what the Finnish company is describing as a shift "from developing strategy to executing strategy." The Microsoft Windows Phone partnership is finally inked, and it's about time too: total mobile device sales are down 12-percent from last quarter, while smartphone sales are down 14-percent from last quarter. Still, they're higher than this time last year - up 1-percent and 13-percent respectively - and there are more Symbian devices to come: Nokia says it expects "the transition to Windows Phone as our primary smartphone platform to take about two years."
