Motorla and Intel were in the United Kingdom to show off their new smartphone — the Motorola RAZR i. It’s a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED qHD device with an edge-to-edge display, and it’s pretty much identical to the DROID RAZR M sans 4G LTE and Qualcomm’s S4 chip. Instead, we have Intel’s 2GHz Atom chip that looked to perform fairly well in various hands-on video. We can’t say for sure how well, exactly, performance was up against the S4, but it looks like those who are checking for this device should have more than enough power to go about their business. The device is shipping next month with Ice Cream Sandwich on board, but Motorola has promised that it will get Jelly Bean sometime down the line. It’ll be available in “select European and Latin American markets including the U.K., France, Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico.” Motorola will also introduce a white color option.
As we approach the end of the year, Android fanboys and girls are anxiously awaiting even the smallest bit of news, leaks or rumors on the next iteration of Google’s Nexus phone. Well, tonight’s juicy rumor leap frogs over this year’s Nexus, and lands all the way onto next year’s Samsung Galaxy S4. Yes, you read that right — FOUR . The folks at The Korea Times have found themselves with juicy bit of insider news they’re calling an exclusive. Apparently, company officials and local parts suppliers have confirmed that Samsung is gearing up to announce the Galaxy S4 in February at next year’s Mobile World Congress, with a global launch taking place no later than March (GS3 was announced early May and launched a few days shy of June)
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Apple Inc's new iPhone goes on sale on Friday with a bigger screen and 4G wireless technology, as the company seeks to safeguard its edge over rivals like Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and Google Inc. The iPhone 5 fulfilled many of the expectations laid out by gadget geeks and technology analysts ahead of its Wednesday unveiling but offered few surprises to give Apple …
For the first time, the iPhone is growing even as it slims down. After sticking for five years to the same screen size, Apple on Wednesday revealed a new phone that's taller, and has a bigger display.
A major hurdle for Google Glass to overcome is convincing people they won’t look silly donning the upcoming headgear throughout their daily lives. It certainly helps Google’s cause to see prototype units make an appearance at New York Fashion Week. But that wasn’t the only reason Glass could be spotted as the accessory of choice for those modeling Diane von Furstenberg’s latest designs. The futuristic set of eyewear was also being used to record video for use in an upcoming short film documenting von Furstenberg’s creative process through the behind-the-scenes goings on at a high-profile fashion show. The film will be called “DVF through Glass” and will debut on Google+ on September 13th

It was last week Glu Mobile teased us with a short video from their upcoming title Blood & Glory: Legend and today, the sequel to last year’s Blood & Glory is now ready for downloading in the Play Store. Might wanna grab a slicker, cuz it’s gonna be a blood bath. If you’ve played the first, you pretty much know what to expect. Players engage in 1-on-1 battles with a computer controlled opponent and using carefully time button presses and gestures (ala Infinity Blade), will navigate and slash their way to victory. To progress in B&GL, equipping the right gear is the key to survival. How that’s done is by earning money by fighting more battles and — if you should choose — spending real-life money via in-app purchases to stay ahead of competition
The leak-meisters over at Twitter-based EVLeaks are at it again, this time with a few leaked images of a purported HTC tab, to be announced at this year’s IFA 2012. What is probably one of the most unique (strangest?) designs we’ve come across since Sony’s Tablet S, the possible 10-inch tab features a near bezel-less design on 3 sides — top, right, and left — which an abnormally large bezel along the bottom. While this makes it the perfect area for getting a firm grip on the tab, the tablet’s camera is also placed smack dab in the middle. A little unconventional, but then again — HTC wont have to worry about stomping on Apple’s trade dress patent, will they? What do you guys think? Hit or miss
HONG KONG/SEATTLE (Reuters) – Apple Inc's decisive triumph over Samsung Electronics in the most closely watched patent trial in years could open the door for Microsoft Corp to finally hop on board the mobile boom as manufacturers of Android-based smartphones and tablets weigh their legal risks. Microsoft sounded a challenge to Apple and Samsung in July when it took the wraps off its Surface …
