Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Review

This week the brand new T-mobile Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G goes on sale with T-Mobile's own brand of 4G connectivity and a Qualcomm S3 dual-core processor under the hood. This device represents what was fantastic throughout 2011, what's going right with the industry today, and a good look at what it means to pay slightly less cash for a device that by all means should be considered a hero device, but isn't because there can only be one: the Galaxy S II. You can get this device in the store today - now lets have a heavy look at what it means to own it.

Samsung Galaxy S III press shot leaks

Samsung Galaxy S III press shot leaks

The newest in a line of Samsung Galaxy S III clues is a press photo provided by a group which claims it is the final straight-on look at the next-generation smartphone. It's coming from GSM Helpdesk and looks to have a rather familiar screenshot right up the middle, replicating much of what we remember from the Galaxy S III. This clue appears to show off a lovely falsification of several elements, yet provides a couple of clues as to what the final model might have intact, one of these being physical keys.

Forget the iPad, here’s the $40 Android tablet

Forget the iPad, here’s the $40 Android tablet

All the way over in India there's a tablet that you may have heard of - the Aakash. This little beast was revealed last year for students across the country, and is now getting a $40 next-generation upgrade that'll be dropping in April. Will this lovely little tablet be a great competitor for the iPad? Certainly not when you consider the fact that it'll only be released in India - but therein lies the question: why is the UK-based manufacturer DataWind able to create such a cost-cut device when the most popular tablet in the world costs 12 times as much?

Panasonic ELUGA fully detailed

The folks at Panasonic have released information about an Android smartphone that'll be as slim as it is waterproof, with full high specifications in tow. This device goes by the name Panasonic ELUGA and is another way of saying "elegant user-oriented getaway."

Meizu MX Review

Meizu MX Review

While the Meizu electronics brand isn't that well known outside of China at the moment, they're certainly a brand to be reckoned with in the smartphone market, and if the Meizu MX is any indication, they'll be a whole lot more well known in the very near future. The device you see before you is a high-end Android device made for release in China only, but because of its 2G and 3G network bands, we're able to use it here in the USA with a micro SIM card from T-Mobile or AT&T, whichever we so choose to pop in. Because of this, the review of this device makes for a rather interesting exercise in testing Meizu on a global scale: can this MX smartphone stand up to the rest of the Android devices here in the USA?

Motorola DROID 4 vs DROID RAZR MAXX vs entire Verizon Android lineup

If you head to a Verizon Wireless store today looking to purchase an Android smartphone, you're very likely going to be inundated by offers to purchase Verizon's own unique DROID line. I'm here to tell you that the current top choices for these Motorola-made smartphones aren't necessarily your best choice for Android or 4G-laden devices - in fact they're not even really your best choice for Motorola-made devices on Verizon. Instead, have a quick glance at some comparisons to some lesser-advertised devices sitting right next to these hero phones to gain a better understanding of what Verizon really has to offer.

Motorola DROID 4 Review

Motorola DROID 4 Review

Finally the one-two-three punches of Verizon's 4G LTE, a dual-core processor, and an 8 megapixel camera capable of 1080p video has come to the DROID line of QWERTY keyboard-having Android devices. Those of you who are die-hard fans of the DROID line know that Verizon and Motorola have dipped in a few devices that strayed from the original power combo complete with QWERTY and may have had hard luck picking up the DROID 3 which, despite its having a decent processor and a fair but not too fantastic camera on the back, had no LTE and was released when Motorola's user interface change-over was at a bit of a strange point. Now the QWERTY DROID line is back and stronger than ever, and if you're not a person who minds the massiveness of the chassis here, you're in for a treat.
