Opera Ice makes mobile web browsing ultra-minimalistic

Opera Ice makes mobile web browsing ultra-minimalistic

This week the folks at Opera Software have given the world a glimpse of their next big (and yet tiny) production: Opera Ice, a mobile web browser to out-simplify every competitor. The mobile version of this browser is the first in a set of browsers that'll also be out for desktop machines and - if you're lucky - in-between machines as well. The aim of this browser is to take what Opera has learned over the past few years about the tendencies of the public to do only a limited number of tasks in a web browser on a mobile device and turn those tendencies into efficiency.

Samsung Galaxy S IV appears in benchmarks with Exynos 5 OCTA

Samsung Galaxy S IV appears in benchmarks with Exynos 5 OCTA

It's time for Exynos 5 - or at least that's what the benchmark results we're seeing today are saying - ready and willing to roll out on the Samsung Galaxy S IV this Spring. While it may be too much to hope for to see the Samsung Galaxy S IV at Mobile World Congress 2013 next month, we certainly can expect this device (Exynos 5 or no) to be appearing before the end of the Summer. Benchmark results here show the device to be working at 1.8Ghz clock speed per core with Android 4.2.1 right out the box.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet tipped for MWC 2013

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet tipped for MWC 2013

In less than a month we'll be seeing a brand new collection of devices prepared for the masses at Mobile World Congress 2013, and today's tip suggests that a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (8-inch tablet) will be amongst them. With two sizes of Samsung Galaxy Note out on the market besides the first 10.1-inch tablet Note, it's not too much of a stretch to think Samsung wouldn't also bring on an 8-inch version of this S-Pen-toting lineup. This machine has today been connected to previous leaks of device codename GT-N5100, spoken about in the past as a 7 or 7.7-inch beast that's never seen the light of day.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus details surface, said to be launching soon

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus details surface, said to be launching soon

Rumors of new Samsung devices are commonplace in the smartphone world, but today we're getting details about a rumored Samsung phone that probably isn't going to turn as many heads as the Galaxy S III or the Galaxy Note II did. Regardless, say hello to the Galaxy Pocket Plus, which is rumored to be launching soon. Judging from the image below - which comes courtesy of SamMobile - the Galaxy Pocket Plus isn't going to be anywhere close to the high-end of the smartphone scale, but should prove to be a suitable device for those who want to snag a smartphone on the cheap.

LG confirms Nexus 4 still in production with no 5 on the books

LG confirms Nexus 4 still in production with no 5 on the books

If there's one element in the news universe here that tells us Google is doing things right, it's the constant talk and response to a new Nexus smartphone - even when the current model is doing exceedingly well on the market. Here in first quarter of 2013 heading into Spring (or maybe that's just wishful thinking), we've got rumors galore of a Nexus 5 being worked on for release at Mobile World Congress 2013 from LG, none other than the manufacturers of the Nexus 4. Today they've confirmed that no, that doesn't make any sense, and that yes, they're still making massive amounts of the current Google hero Nexus 4 for the time being.

Huawei tips 8-core processor and new P-series phone for MWC 2013

Huawei tips 8-core processor and new P-series phone for MWC 2013

This week the folks at Huawei have revealed - or teased, really - a new phone that'll be coming out to the public at Mobile World Congress 2013. This event is next month while the tip here comes from CES and an interview with Engadget where the CEO of Huawei's Consumer Business Group Richard Yu made it plain that not only will Huawei be bringing a new next-generation super-thin P-series 2 smartphone to the market with a reveal at Mobile World Congress 2013 (next month - we'll be there), they'll also be bringing their very own octa-core (that's 8 CPU cores, mind you) processor to the market in the second half of the year.

Goodbye CES 2013: It’s been fun!

Goodbye CES 2013: It’s been fun!

This year at CES 2013 we took on the full gamut, everything from ultra HD televisions to smartphone cases, and all things good in-between. While we'll be presenting several CES wrap-up posts for you over the next few days so you can get caught up in a collection of nutshells, we'd like to take the opportunity here to say thank you to all of the individuals, companies, and institutions that helped us make it easy to present all the newest innovations to you, the readers.

HTC M7 specifications leak with hint of new Sense

HTC M7 specifications leak with hint of new Sense

This week one of the biggest points of interest in the leaked or otherwise tipped or rumored smartphone department has been the HTC M7, and today we've got a batch of new details for you straight from the anonymous barn. This machine is set to be working with an "all black design", it's being said today by a source speaking with HTC Source, and will be coming with a new version of HTC Sense that's both clean and simple - not generally what Sense is all about (so to speak). This device will still not likely be appearing until at least after next week as next week is CES 2013, but you never know!

Samsung Galaxy S IV render leaks with no on-screen buttons

Samsung Galaxy S IV render leaks with no on-screen buttons

The next-generation Samsung Galaxy S IV has been tipped with a photo of a rendering that, while it may look professionally done, is simple enough in its aesthetic quality that it could have been mocked up rather easily. That said, this SamMobile release's attached details present an interesting prospect for the future, starting with no on-screen buttons, much like the last two Google Nexus devices and the Motorola lineup of late. After that it's all big-time upgrades.
