The makers claim several sophis­ti­cated features like: * Girlfriend … Read More…

<img class="alignleft" style="border: 0px;" alt="" src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-YXPJizuWirg/Uipo6sjDqPI/AAAAAAAAl_g/SFgOqENAoDY/Amazon-Kindle-Phone.jpg" /> There have been rumors for a couple of years now of an Amazon Phone presum­ably running some variant of their forked Kindle Android OS. But the latest rumor is pretty extreme. Not a low cost phone. But a free ($0.00) phone and without requiring a contract. Honestly I'm not sure they could pull … Read More…

Would You Buy A Camera For You Smartphone?

<img class="alignleft" style="border: 0px;" alt="" src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-oYibulKWMO0/Ugk_xLq2TlI/AAAAAAAAkGI/aUh74BFYrhg/lens-camera.jpg" /> So the first images of this concept leaked a few weeks ago but now more infor­ma­tion is emerging.

Do You Want A Phone The Size Of A Tablet

<img class="alignleft" style="border: 0px;" alt="" src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-thnrSTFvfLk/UgFwzrCSJqI/AAAAAAAAjqY/KC7TyLlOkcM/XZUvN7_3-540x405.jpg" /> On the left is the Nexus 7. On the right is the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. It's an Android phone. If you thought Samsung's Note line were big, appar­ently that's nothing compared to the 6.4" Xperia Z Ultra. I suppose this might be big enough you wouldn't need the tablet … Read More…

Appar­ently the Moto X is smooth as butter. The Moto X is being called a mid-range phone, the GS4 high end. People complain the HTC One's battery life is terrible. Suppos­edly the Moto X has excel­lent battery life. The HTC One is appar­ently a high-end phone. Moto X offers … Read More…

Now you can't do an apples to apples compar­ison of game sales between Ouya and the estab­lished consoles for all sorts of reasons. It has neither the market pene­tra­tion or the advertising … Read More…

Which makes Moto X the second major … Read More…
