iPhone 4S vs Samsung Galaxy S II drop test [Video]

There's just a few tests that every single device should go through after their released, this drop test being one of them - will it bust? When you've got a couple of smartphones that are selling so well that they're bound to be compared to one another in just about every sort of test imaginable, is the dropping from shoulder height test that'll get our attention after we've seen everything else. When you've got one phone that's made out of metal and MOSTLY glass on the outside, that being the iPhone 4S, and another phone by the name of Galaxy S II that's made out of Gorilla Glass and MOSTLY plastic on the outside, the results are going to be pretty obvious when you drop them both on the cement - but why not watch anyway?

USA Judge finds Samsung infringing on Apple iPad patent

Samsung has been having one whole heck of a lot of trouble with Apple accusing them of infringing on patents around the world, this newest accusation holding sway in none other than our home turf, the USA. Samsung could handle a ban in Austrailia for Galaxy Tabs, certainly no tabs in Germany isn't a hassle when it comes down to it, but America? This could be some big trouble. U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh this week has said that Samsung's Galaxy Tab tablets DO infringe on Apple's iPad patents, but made sure to note that Apple will have a problem proving the validity of the patents in question.

Galaxy Note aimed at capturing the female market says Samsung

Galaxy Note aimed at capturing the female market says Samsung

This week it's been said by Samsung UK Sales Director Andrew Glass that the upcoming Galaxy Note device "is really good for the female market." With a gigantic 5.37-inch display and a thin stylus that's able to be carried by the device itself when not in use, we've been thinking that this halfway point between a tablet and a smartphone would be a good shot aimed at basically any set of humans, Glass this week detailed a few ways in which Samsung would be tending to the female market specifically. Does this 1280 x 800 pixel Super AMOLED HD display having 1.4GHz dual-core wielding Note device look like the lady product for you?

CyanogenMod 7.1 Android hack released, HP Touchpad inclusion imminent

If there's a king of Android ROMs, aka complete replacement of the visible workings of a mobile device in this case, it's CyanogenMod.

When it comes to Pantech here in the USA, we've not exactly seen the best of the crop for smartphones - all that may be about to change with the Pantech Vega LTE.
