Now I know we’ve seen a lot of these in the past year, but this budget tablet might have a few tricks up its sleeves. The 7-inch 1024×600 display is nothing to write home about, but it is of the IPS variant so that should ensure wide viewing angles. The MediaPad 7 Vogue has an aluminum unibody design coming in black and white colors, tipping the scales at 335 grams and is 9.5mm thick.


An aluminum unibody design should ensure a premium feel on an otherwise budget tablet.

Underneath that metal is Huawei’s own quad-core K3V2 Cortex-A9 processor, clocked at 1.2Ghz. This the same processor as the one found in...

As the drop-dead date for Google Reader draws near, the discussion on what replacements to use is heating back up. There are plenty of good utilities out there, but none as sublime as Reader. Many users will simply turn to Twitter, or news cobbling services like Google Currents or Flipboard.

If Facebook has their way, you’ll turn to them. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Facebook is working on a “Flipboard style” news reader. This service...

HTC might have signed up Iron Man, but Samsung isn’t looking too worried with Jigga Man on its side.

Rap mogul Shawn Carter, alias Jay-Z, has reportedly signed a $5 million deal with the Korean giant to make his new album available to users of Samsung’s flagship devices ahead of its commercial launch.

Titled Magna Carta Holy Grail, the album will launch worldwide on July 7, but Samsung users will be able to get it early using the app called Jay Z Magna Carta, which was just released on the...

Summer is here, and with it the wave of leaks, rumors, and speculation concerning the hottest Android device of the season, the Galaxy Note.

The latest piece of fodder for the rumor mill concerns the supposed start of the manufacturing process for the successor to the Galaxy Note 2. According to an insider quoted by the Korean site ETNews, Samsung’s upstream suppliers should begin receiving orders for components for the Note 3 starting in August. The info comes from a report discussing the drop in component orders from Samsung, caused by the lower than expected demand for the Galaxy S4, which left Sammy’s...

The recently announced dual-booting Samsung ATIV Q tablet/laptop has apparently been benchmarked with AnTuTu, obtaining a higher score than any Android device to date.

Reviewed by Taiwanese site ePrice, the ATIV Q has been put through the usual AnTuTu benchmark test, scoring a total of 54,861. That’s almost double what the Galaxy S4 scored in the same test (see our own AnTuTu benchmark comparison table below), and the ATIV Q leaves even Tegra 4-based devices behind...

Sony will be hosting dual events tomorrow in Shanghai, China and Munich, Germany, and it looks that all the inter-continental fuss will be worth the wait.

The Japanese manufacturer is rumored to show four new products, including the exciting and thoroughly leaked Xperia ZU (Ultra) 6.3-inch competitor to the Note 2, and a new generation of the Sony SmartWatch.

Besides these two stars of the show, a couple of other phones destined for the Chinese market will also be making an appearance – Xperia C and a TD-LTE version of the Xperia...

According to Cnet, the next-generation SmartWatch will bring a larger screen than the current version, which has a 1.3-inch OLED display, and NFC for one-touch pairing with smartphones.

Like its predecessor, it’ll be running a version of Android, and will feature a capacitive touchscreen. According to Cnet, it will also be minimally water-resistant (50 points to whoever can tell us what “minimally” means in this scenario). The successor to the Sony SmartWatch is expected to be announced at this week’s Mobile Asia Expo 2013 trade show in Beijing.

The LG Optimus G’s successor, which is rumored to be called simply LG G2, is now said to launch in July in the company’s home country, and later in other markets.

The company has already issued press invites for an August 7 media event taking place in New York, supposedly to unveil the LG G2, but the handset will reportedly arrive earlier in South Korea.

A few days ago, LG announced that the successor to the Optimus G – the company did not refer to the device as the G2 in the press release – will pack a Qualcomm...

The HTC One, next to the Galaxy S4, is one of the best handsets of the year. The hardware is extremely impressive, and the new and fresh look that Sense 5 brings was much needed. The HTC One is truly one of the best handsets that Android has to offer.

On the other side, we have the Lumia 928 — one of the best devices that Windows Phone has to offer. Some might consider its hardware to be mid-range in the Android space, but it’s no doubt a high-tier phone in the Windows Phone ecosystem, due to a much less demanding operating system.

So, we’re going to put these two devices against each other. If you’re in a rush, jump straight to the...
