[MWC 2012] The Asus PadFone is one of the more interesting concepts of this show: PadFone is a smartphone that turns into a tablet, which turns into a laptop. Interestingly, the concept has been thought about before, but Asus is the first company that has an actual implementation that works, at least it works enough to make it worth your time. You will ultimately decide if it is worth your […]
[MWC 2012] We stumbled upon this Fujitsu Tegra 3 smartphone prototype, and although we could not boot or use the interface, we snapped some photos and here are our first impressions: it has a very classic look and is pretty much your average Android smartphone. In the back, there’s what seems to be a tactile sensor, but we’re not completely sure and are waiting for the official answer (or any […]
[MWC 2012] I got some hands-on time with the Nokia 808 Symbian smartphone, and of course, the first (and only) thing that I wanted to look at was the 41 Megapixel camera that can capture photos as high-res as 38 Megapixels (only in 4:3 ratio). The demo was extremely interesting as the effective Megapixels of the phone could be used in a couple of different ways. Basically you can choose […]
[MWC 2012] If you’re looking for a quad-core tablet but don’t want to shell out the money for the ASUS Transformer Prime, you’re in luck as ASUS has announced the Transformer Pad 300 series, a more affordable quad-core tablet with a price tag of $399, a good $100-$200 cheaper than the ASUS Transformer Prime.
[MWC 2012] For those that thought the ASUS Transformer Prime was the best the company was offering at the moment, you would be mistaken as the Taiwanese company has recently unveiled the Android 4.0 powered ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity, dropping the Eee Pad moniker in the process.
[MWC 2012] Quad-core certainly is the buzz word of 2012 as ZTE has just taken the wraps off their own quad-core handset, the ZTE Era, which the company claims is the most powerful Android smartphone in their portfolio, thanks to NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor.
[MWC 2012] While Android seems to be stealing the show at MWC 2012, if you’re in the market for a Windows Phone handset then perhaps ZTE’s latest Windows Phone offering in the form of the Orbit might be a phone worth checking out. The ZTE Orbit would make it the company’s second Windows Phone device following the ZTE Tania that was unveiled last year.
[MWC 2012] After the official announcement, I got some hands-on time with the Nokia Lumia 610. It is a small device that has a bit of an entry-level feel to it, which is completely normal, but as expected, he Windows Phone interface ran flawlessly and was fluid at all times. I suspect that high-powered games or apps will run noticeably slower than on the high-end Windows Phone, but it’s really […]
[MWC 2012] Today at its MWC press event, the company announced the launch of three new Asha phones. For those not in the know, Nokia’s Asha devices were introduced at Nokia World last year, as a budget-friendly alternative to smartphones. They are feature phones running on Nokia’s Series 40 operating system. Today, Nokia introduced the Asha 202, 203 and 302.
[MWC 2012] So we know that the successor to the Nokia N8 was on its way, and Nokia teased us about a week ago with a “PureView” video. Well if you enjoyed the N8’s camera but you’re on the lookout for an upgrade, then the recently announced Nokia 808 PureView whose image sensor could rival some DSLR cameras could be the phone that you are looking for.
[MWC 2012] After what seemed like forever, it looks like Skype for Windows Phone is finally here. At MWC 2012 during Nokia’s event, they announced that Skype app for Windows Phone is now in beta and should be available for download from the Windows Marketplace sometime today (at the time of writing, the link doesn’t seem to be up yet). The Skype app will definitely let users take full advantage […]
[MWC 2012] In order for Nokia and Microsoft to gain a foothold with Windows Phone devices in developing markets, a budget Windows Phone device is a good way to do so, and if you’re after such a device then perhaps the Nokia Lumia 610 could be the phone that you are looking for.
[MWC 2012] At CES last month, the high-end Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone LTE device was announced to be arriving on AT&T, but since its official announcement, there have been hints and speculations about its international release. Well, today at Nokia’s MWC 2012 press conference, the Finnish mobile giant confirmed that the phone will be made available worldwide. So for those of you who have been looking forward to picking […]
