  • Nokia Teases “Pure View” Imaging Ahead Of MWC

    Nokia isn’t all that great with teasers. In August the company posted a teaser for the newest version of Symbian which just so happened to include the release date in it. Today, the teaser (at least) doesn’t give away the name of the product or anything huge like that, but it’s pretty clear what Nokia is hyping right here. Obviously the big news here is some form of… Read More

  • Samsung Galaxy Note Review: Who Do You Think You Are? Mr. Big Stuff?

    Samsung Galaxy Note Review: Who Do You Think You Are? Mr. Big Stuff?

    When I went to meet with Samsung to pick up the Galaxy Note, I was told something that I kept in mind throughout my last week or so with the phone. “People freak out and say it’s too big until they play with it — then they love it.” I was also told that the S-Pen is way more than just a stylus, and I generally felt excited to be playing with something different from… Read More

  • This Is What Microsoft Office Looks Like On An iPad

    This Is What Microsoft Office Looks Like On An iPad

    We heard all the way back in November that Microsoft would launch an Office app for the iPad, and it would seem that the big day draws even closer. According to an unverified image captured by The Daily, a version of Microsoft Office for iPad was caught running on one of Apple’s tablets. Read More

  • Pricelock Mobile App Puts The Energy Auction In Your Pocket

    Pricelock Mobile App Puts The Energy Auction In Your Pocket

    Pricelock is all about making the buying and selling of energy more efficient. It was true when the company launched the Marketplace, a customized online energy auction platform for utilities companies, power plants and other government and/or commercial entities to buy and sell natural gas, motor fuels and coal. But today, Pricelock is taking things one step further with the launch of a… Read More

  • Motorola Atrix 3 Leak Promises A Quad-Core Chip, 720p Screen, And A Huge Battery

    Motorola Atrix 3 Leak Promises A Quad-Core Chip, 720p Screen, And A Huge Battery

    The Motorola Atrix line has been a big one for the company. Yet with two iterations out so far, the phones have yet to really wow anyone. But according to this specs/photo leak, the Atrix 3 may leave you humming a different tune. Tian Jin Daily reports that the Atrix 3 will sport a 4.3-inch 720p display, which is a nice start but that’s not even where things get exciting. Under the… Read More

  • Nokia Siemens Network, Qualcomm Prepare MultiFlow HSPA+ To Keep Data Signals Strong

    Nokia Siemens Network, Qualcomm Prepare MultiFlow HSPA+ To Keep Data Signals Strong

    Our phones can do all kinds of things these days. Hell, millions of people — people from all different OS persuasions — are walking around talking to their phone. But even some of the most basic features — like, oh I don’t know… connecting to the Internet — could stand a few upgrades. That said, the Nokia Siemens Network and Qualcomm are putting together a… Read More

  • After Conquering The World, Our Favorite Angry Birds Head Into Space On March 22

    After Conquering The World, Our Favorite Angry Birds Head Into Space On March 22

    I’m not even going to pretend that you don’t know what Angry Birds is… that would be insulting to both you and the game. But do you know what Angry Birds Space is? Nah, I didn’t think so. And truth be told, I’m not quite sure what it is either. According to Rovio, Angry Birds Space will be the biggest launch for the company to date. Remember what a big deal… Read More

  • WinZip iOS App Lets You Crack Open .Zip Files From Anywhere

    WinZip iOS App Lets You Crack Open .Zip Files From Anywhere

    Having access to your documents and pictures is really easy these days. About a million services, including Dropbox and iCloud, allow you to sync your stuff between devices, but there’s one little thorn in our collective cloud-syncing side: it’s called a .zip file. Fortunately, WinZip has just launched on the Apple App Store and it effectively rids us of this particularly… Read More

  • Motorola Droid 4 Review: This Keyboard Rocks, But That’s About It

    Motorola Droid 4 Review: This Keyboard Rocks, But That’s About It

    The Droid 4 doesn’t look much like its other Droid siblings, but it does promise the same stellar keyboard and a solid construction. At $199 it won’t break your wallet, but it will offer most of the same specs we’re seeing go for $300, including a 4G LTE radio. If thin and light is important to you, the Droid 4 probably isn’t what you’re looking for, but… Read More

  • Ridiculously Pricey Lumia 800 Bundle Available Now In MS Retail Stores

    Ridiculously Pricey Lumia 800 Bundle Available Now In MS Retail Stores

    We’ve talked about the Lumia line quite a bit in the past few months, but the series is finally starting to feel real. Just last week the 900 was made available for pre-order, and today we’re seeing reports that the staggeringly high-priced Lumia 800 bundle is just hanging out on Microsoft store shelves waiting for some new Windows Phone fans to stroll in. Along with the phone… Read More

  • Snag Last-Minute Concert Tickets With The New Thrillcall iOS App

    Snag Last-Minute Concert Tickets With The New Thrillcall iOS App

    We all love music. I mean, when’s the last time you heard someone say they didn’t like listening to music? But for some of us, plugging in some ear buds and cranking a jam or two on the iPod just doesn’t cut it. If that sounds like you, please allow me to introduce you to one of the newest apps to grace the iOS platform: Thrillcall. Thrillcall has taken its live music… Read More

  • Amazon Steals 14% Tablet Market Share In Q4, Apple Share Drops To 57%

    Amazon Steals 14% Tablet Market Share In Q4, Apple Share Drops To 57%

    We’ve known since the Fire first debuted that it would create some competition for Apple’s iPad, which has dominated the market since it arrived. But today iSuppli has offered up a little insight into just how fierce the competition really is. According to the research firm, Apple’s market share in the tablet arena dropped from 64 percent in Q3 to 57 percent in Q4, with… Read More

  • Samsung Galaxy Note Review: Head-To-Head With The Galaxy Nexus And Streak 5

    Samsung Galaxy Note Review: Head-To-Head With The Galaxy Nexus And Streak 5

    If last week’s showdown between the Droid 4, Droid 3, and iPhone 4S didn’t get your blood pumping, prepare yourself for the heavyweight round. We’ve got the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note going up against the Dell Streak and the beastly Galaxy Nexus. Obviously the Streak is a somewhat older device, but it’s very similar in size to the Note which should give… Read More

  • OS X Mountain Lion Brings The Mac Into The Game

    OS X Mountain Lion Brings The Mac Into The Game

    Gamers, start your engines, lift your fruit-slicing swords, and lace up your Temple-running shoes. Game Center, Apple’s gaming/social hub for iOS, has finally made it’s way over to the more mature Apple OS, OS X Mountain Lion. This is huge. Not because you’ll be able to enjoy the features of Game Center while playing around on your Mac (which will likely be great fun… Read More

  • TC at Toy Fair 2012: Locomotion

    Toy Fair 2012: Locomotion

    Yesterday I went to the 2012 Toy Fair, and to be honest I was really disappointed. I’m 23 years old, and I’d estimate that 90 percent of what I saw yesterday was a variation of a toy I played with as a child. My 50-year old parents might even say the same thing. There were more stuffed animals than I care to remember, lots of toy guns and building blocks, and plenty of R/C cars and… Read More

  • Motorola Outlines Further Ice Cream Sandwich Update Plans

    Motorola Outlines Further Ice Cream Sandwich Update Plans

    Motorola has already confirmed that the Xooms, Droid Bionic, Razr, Razr Maxx and the Droid 4 will get a hefty helping of Ice Cream Sandwich this year, but the company has added a few more devices to its ICS upgrade schedule. The Photon 4G, Atrix 4G, Atrix 2, and the Electrify will all see Android 4.0 at some point during the course of 2012. Motorola lists most of the devices for a Q3… Read More

  • Evidence Of A Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Sprouts Up All Over The Place

    Evidence Of A Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Sprouts Up All Over The Place

    Remember when that Samsung product marketing manager Ryan Bidan let slip a few details on the next-gen GalTab and/or Galaxy Note? He mentioned the inclusion of an S-Pen, 3D gestures (courtesy of a front-facing camera), and voice controls. Well, it would seem that further proof of the product he was detailing has trickled out, and just like the last time, it’s coming straight from the… Read More

  • Apple Yanks The iPad Off Of Amazon’s Chinese Shelves, But Why?

    Apple Yanks The iPad Off Of Amazon’s Chinese Shelves, But Why?

    If for some reason you were to mosey on over to Amazon’s Chinese website and perform a search for the iPad, you know what you’d find? No iPad. Now, you might think to yourself, “Wow, Proview pulled it off,” but that’s not the case at all. In fact, an Amazon spokesperson said that the Apple was the one who requested that the iPad be taken off the site. Proview… Read More

  • Samsung Galaxy Note Review

    Samsung Galaxy Note Review: Initial Impressions (Video)

    Even if it isn’t my favorite new device, I’m glad to see the Galaxy Note bring something totally different to the mobile table. At first glance you’d think it was a tablet, especially when you set it next to a “regular” phone, but you’d soon realize the Note has a 4G LTE radio tucked inside to let you phone home. Unfortunately, you might look a little… Read More

  • Motorola’s First Ice Cream Sandwich Handset Smiles For The Camera

    Motorola’s First Ice Cream Sandwich Handset Smiles For The Camera

    Motorola’s latest handsets have been pretty impressive. The Razr and Razr Maxx, in particular, are excellent handsets. But it would seem that the (almost) freshly acquired company has no intentions of resting on its laurels. Rather than sticking with its usual OMAP-powered devices, Motorola has slapped an Intel Medfield chip on to this anonymous device. And lest we forget, Ice Cream… Read More
