10/24/2012, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Review | The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is one of the best 4G LTE device and the combination of a large 5.5” screen, LTE speeds and a good battery life makes it a unique combo.
10/20/2012, Known as the LG Intuition in the USA, this smartphone has been introduced by LG as the LG Optimus Vu at Mobile World Congress. We had published a hands-on in early 2012. The goal for this device is to address the very large display smartphone market created by the Samsung Galaxy Note, which has sold more than 10M units since its launch. The LG Optimus Vu adds a few things […]
10/16/2012, We were at the LG Optimus G launch in Korea on September 17, where we were able to briefly play with it. The Optimus G is the first smartphone to launch with the Quad-Core SnapDragon S4 Pro processor, so it is supposed to offer state-of-the-art performance. From what we have seen with the pre-production unit in Korea, it was fast indeed. It looks like LG is back in the game […]

09/20/2012, After the success of the Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung has decided to “double down” with their stylus-powered line of product, and that’s how the Galaxy Note 10.1 was born. It brings everything that was good with the Galaxy Note smartphone into a 10.1 tablet which is also equipped with an infra-red sensor. Along the way, the company made some improvements on the pressure-sensitive display: it can now sense 1024 levels […]
09/18/2012, Budget laptops, in general, used to be clunky hunks of plastic, more three-dimensional than thin, a collection of loosely grouped computer parts. Because of the recent Ultrabook (Intel’s thin-and-fast laptop) craze, even mid-to-low range computers sport a durable, solid build. In order to bill a computer as an ultrabook, manufacturers have to place a strong emphasis on maximizing the space and efficiency of laptop internals. The Envy 4 isn’t Macbook […]
09/14/2012, The Motorola Droid RAZR M was just made available to the public, so it’s time for a review. We have played with the device since its official launch in New York last week. The overall idea of this device is to provide a compact form factor, and a relatively “large” screen (4.3″) at the same time. Of course such as size isn’t that big these days as it is possible […]
09/10/2012, Most people in the USA have never heard of Meizu, and that’s because it is a Chinese company that has not yet entered the U.S market. However, they have made a name for themselves abroad by launching this cute quad-core phone: the Meizu MX. The name stands for “M10″ and it was unveiled in December of 2011, then was launched several times in 2012 in a dual-core, then quad-core version. […]
09/07/2012, Yesterday, at an event in Santa Monica CA, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos unveiled the Kindle Fire HD. The device comes in two flavors, 7-inch and 8.9-inch, and they will retail for $199 and $299, respectively, with the former shipping from September 14th onwards while the latter will see a November 20th release date. The most interesting is certainly the 8.9-inch 4G LTE version featuring 32GB of internal memory and priced […]
09/04/2012, The Motorola Photon Q is the company’s QWERTY slider smartphone for the Sprint network. It is a cousin of Verizon’s Droid 4, works on Sprint’s LTE network and has worldwide roaming capabilities. As you may have suspected, this is a smartphone built for productivity and for global travelers. It is great, you would ask, but you can get a Blackberry to get great text capability and a great keyboard. Maybe […]
08/22/2012, We were glad to see that the Archos 101 XS did live up to our expectations of being thin and affordable and was pretty much exactly how it looked in the video presentation I saw during the press conference held by Archos’ CEO Paris, France (March 2012). For $399, users get an elegant, thin & light tablet with a detachable keyboard dock that doubles as a tough protective cover named […]
08/20/2012, The Toshiba Excite 10 LE, still the thinnest you can buy now, was one of my favorite gadget to launch at CES this year, and I could not wait to play with this super light and beautifully crafted Android tablet. The Toshiba 10 LE has been on the US market since March 6, when we were travelling in Europe to report news from MWC and CeBIT.The most unique feature of the 10 LE is its […]
08/08/2012, Last year, Lenovo came out with the Lenovo Thinkpad X1, a laptop that was unprecedented in the company’s history. Lenovo is coming back with a follow-up in the the Lenovo X1 Carbon. The new laptop builds upon the strengths of the original X1, but improves upon just about everything, and that includes the screen size (14”), weight (3lbs) and design. The Lenovo X1 Carbon has been designed to go beyond […]
08/06/2012, Network attached storage (NAS) appliances are becoming much smarter than being just “disks over Ethernet”. When Iomega came out with the StorCenter ix2 NAS at CES, they added powerful video surveillance/recording features, such as an internal API that is supported by several camera vendors, giving users choice over hardware, software and storage. Additionally, having a local storage for video recording allows entities like small businesses to keep their video-surveillance in-house, while […]
