The Kindle Fire HDX from 2012 is a pretty capable tablet on its own, especially considering the price it is retailing for. The tablet used the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, which was considered the best in the business at the time. A new leaked AnTuTu listing is now indicating that the successor to this popular tablet from last year will sport the new Snapdragon 805 chipset which is only seen on select few devices right now. This will mean that Amazon’s next tablet will be more powerful than any of the current crop of Android...

NVIDIA’s Shield Tablet has begun shipping to customers today after going up for pre order last week. So if you’re one of those customers who pre ordered the device early, the tablet should be on its way. The Shield Tablet is being considered a successor to the Shield handheld console which launched last year, although both have different form factors. However, the idea remains the same – to provide a powerful gaming oriented device with top of the line hardware. The Shield Tablet can also be bundled with a gaming controller...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is now being sold for a decent price over at Best Buy. The tablet usually retails for $399.99 but can now be yours for just $279.99. This is a pretty decent deal on a tablet which packs a 2K resolution display and has a pretty capable specs sheet as well. We’re not certain if this is a limited period promotion or a long term discount, but it will certainly attract potential customers. To refresh your memory, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 sports a 2560 x 1600 resolution display, a 1.9 GHz octa core Exynos...

This post is apparently intended for Samsung Galaxy S4 owners who are currently using services offered by Straight Talk in the U.S. but I just want everyone to know that the procedures I cited here could work in any S4 devices.

So, if you have concerns, questions and problems with your phone, do not hesitate to email us at [email protected]..

I remember it as if it were yesterday. Perhaps anticipating the imminent fall of netbooks, Google envisioned a different type of inexpensive, compact laptops called Chromebooks in 2011. Highly reliant on the web, these would be initially berated and laughed out of the then competitive PC stage. But it’s not like Big G to give up a fight so easily, and despite the continuous dip in popularity of traditional computers and the rise of the tablet, Chromebooks stuck around, to the utter dismay of the class’ many critics. Acer and Samsung,...

The LG G3 is available in a range of colors at the moment, including some exclusives such as gold. And it seems like the company could add a couple more to the list with the announcement of Moon Violet and Burgundy Red variants earlier today. Press photos of the LG G3 have shown these two colors before, so it was always expected, but LG had to wait until now to officially announce availability. These new color options will be available starting next month and will most likely include Asian and European markets first with North American...

Yesterday, we spoke about Google and Motorola potentially launching a 5.9 inch Nexus smartphone codenamed Shamu. And today, The Information is coming out with word on this rumored handset. According to the source, the smartphone is indeed real and well on its way later this year. It is said that Google was eager to launch the smartphone much earlier, but wasn’t able to since it owned Motorola back then and there would be calls of conflict of interest. But with Motorola belonging to Lenovo now, no such issues will arise. It...

The Amazon Fire Phone went on sale last week to a rather lukewarm response from the public. Mobile experts weren’t easy on Amazon’s new offering either citing the steep pricing and lack of Google Play services as some of the main negatives of the handset. However, a new teardown analysis has revealed that it takes Amazon close to $205 to build the Fire Phone. This is an estimate of the components used in the smartphone’s making and doesn’t take the R&D costs into account. This tells us that the total component...
