    AT&T Surpasses 1 Million iPhone 4S Activations

    It would seem that the iPhone 4S is one helluva record breaker. Apple recorded over 1 million pre-orders in the first 24 hours the phone was available, and a record 4 million devices sold in the first weekend.

    Verizon Officially Unveils The World’s Thinnest Smartphone: The Motorola Droid RAZR

Verizon and Motorola have finally announced the much-anticipated Droid RAZR, the next LTE beast to grace big red’s shelves. Here at the launch event in New York City, we’re hearing four words over and over again: faster, thinner, smarter, and stronger. And that’s exactly how we’d describe the… Read More

    Archos 80 G9 Tablet Review: Fun But Ugly

    Short Version: The Archos 80 G9 tablet isn’t necessarily something I’d recommend for the hardcore tablet enthusiast, but it certainly gets the job done.

    T-Mobile Announces The Dual-Screen LG DoublePlay, Launching November 2nd?

    While the dual-screen Kyocera Echo didn’t do much to tickle my fancy, a couple dual-screen devices on their way to market, including the Sony S2 tablet, show much more promise.

    Some Retailers Say iPhone 4 Cases Will Fit The 4S, Others Don’t

    Well, this is a bit curious. We’re all well aware that a phone such as the iPhone 4S requires a case. It’s just too damn precious and costs way too much to go unprotected, but the best cases are often expensive. That said, I’m sure many iPhone 4 owners were hoping to keep their old case when upgrading to the iPhone 4S, but if OtterBox is your go-to case brand, think again. Read More
