A week ago I have received a package with something very cool inside. In the package I have a found a custom-built Nokia Lumia 920 case, made of Plexiglass, built on a GoPro chest harness. It’s probably no secret that I’m the unsportiest person in Austria, so I’ve contacted my friend Gernot Lambeck, a huge downhill biking fan. He agreed to give this a try, and so we met last weekend for some action in a nearby forest. With the OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser) built inside the Lumia 920, Nokia promises a great video experience even in difficult situations. Blasting through a forest on a bike would probably be “difficult”, and I was looking forward to see how the 920 handled the abuse.
A couple of days ago, an unlucky, not exactly tech-savy colleague of mine, returned back home from one of our storage halls, reporting happily that he just purchased a new Apple iPhone 4S for just € 135 from a random dude selling knife kits and iphones on the streets. Even though he’s no mobile expert, he was a little bit suspicious at first too, but ultimately decided to buy it. A bargain, right? iPhone 4S for such a little price? Well, you probably guessed it by now, it was a fraud. This is not an iPhone 4S.

We have been visiting the ZTE booth here in Barcelona, to get our hands on the Grand Memo, ZTE’s latest entry into the Android world. Announced right here at Mobile World Congress, the Grand Memo is the first smartphone to feature the brandnew Snapdragon 800 processor! We unpacked our cameras to bring you another photo gallery..
Sony unveiled the Xperia Z, their flagship smartphone at the CES 2013 last month. We brought you the Xperia ZL photo gallery last month, we managed to get our hands on the Xperia Z at the MWC 2013. On the inside there is a quad-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory. Continue reading “Sony Xperia Z Photo Gallery”
Earlier today, HP unveiled it’s first Android tablet, the Slate7! We’ve spotted HP’s budget entry into the Android world tonight at the Pepcom event and switched on the cameras. We’ve managed to get our hands on the red version and were immediately surprised by the good first impression. The biggest advantage of the Slate7? Its price! Starting at just USD 169, HP is ready to enter an already crowded market. So, what’s the Slate7 all about?
Yellow is awesome. Why am I saying that? Well, because my Nokia Lumia 920 looks absolutely great in yellow! When I decided to actually buy one, my color choices became clear quite easily: red or yellow. There could only be those two. Black and white are just so outdated. Anyways, after I’ve received my shiny new, yellow 920, and some initial problems were sorted out (I’ve received a faulty device, which got replaced), it was my turn to produce a nice photo gallery of Nokia’s latest and greatest!
Here are some fresh photos of the Jabra Supreme UC bluetooth headset! The Supreme is one of Jabra’s many headset solutions, focussing not only on mobile phone calls, but also on internet calls. It’s packing a plethora of features, including active noise cancellation, multiuse feature (connects the headset to 2 Bluetooth devices simultaneously), voice commands and many more. The feature list reads very nice and always keen to try fresh headsets, we are eager to put this headset through it’s paces. A big thanks goes out to Frauke from Namu-PR Germany for sending a review unit! Enjoy our photo gallery, including the full package content!
In the endless search for battery life on our beloved smartphones, our friends from Mugen Batteries once again come to the rescue! This time, two of the most popular smartphones these days receive solutions for more juice throughout the day: HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III. As usual, every device will have two offerings, a regular sized model which will fit with the original back cover and a bigger, more powerful version with a bigger back cover. Let’s have a look:
Yes you read right, Megapixel meets Horsepower! As a big last hoorah before giving my Nokia 808 PureView loaner back to Nokia, I was extremely lucky to spend a bit of time again with a Nissan GT-R (HUGE thanks to Richard Haderer!)! Two big worlds collide here: On one side the Nokia 808 PureView, the new undisputed king in mobile photography, Damian Dinning’s 41-megapixel masterpiece with it’s fantastic PureView technology. On the other side, the Nissan GT-R. The most underrated supercar, with 550 horsepowers and probably the best acceleration since a starting plane. Stomping the foot on the accelerator is like getting kicked in the seat by a horse, with a fantastic sound as company. Feast your eyes on these PureView-GT-R-images and make sure to check them out in full size on my Flickr channel by clicking on them!
I remember seeing the HTC One X for the first time in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress, announced from Peter Chou himself. I was a little bit confused at first. This announcement didn’t exactly sound like HTC. New materials, new tech, new direction. I was surprised and I gotta say, HTC did a nice job in keeping their word. The One X felt so different from the rest of their smartphones, which all kinda looked the same. Fast forward and here’s me, sitting with my own One X, yes I have indeed purchased one. My colour of choice was white, as it just looks extremely charming. Our full review of the HTC One X is already up, so I wanted to take some time and let you know about my personal experiences with HTC’s flagship Android smartphone!
I’m back with another photo gallery, this time my latest smartphone purchase, the HTC One X, made it in front of my camera! Of course I had to take the white one, and what can I say, this device is simply stunning! I’m using it for a little more than a week now, and it still continues to impress me. Mind you, there are a few problems with it, but overall, it is one hell of a good smartphone! Now sit back and enjoy the photo gallery of the HTC One X!
Sony Ericsson has always been a mixed bag of nuts for me. I appreciate the company’s tries to bring in different new features, and extend the capabilities of Android. However, at the end of the day, I was always left with the feeling that they didn’t give their best, and didn’t quite think it through. From the terribly slow X10 (at least at the time I have had it), to the Xperia Arc, which was one of the most horribly built devices I have ever tried. Anyways, Ericsson is gone now, and Sony is ready to start into a new future, with the Xperia S the first incarnation of the company’s rebrand.
I have been trying the Sony Xperia S for a good 2 weeks now, trying to see if Sony can impress me. The spec sheet reads very nice: 4,3″ 720p HD display, a Qualcomm MSM8260 Snapdragon dual core processor with 1,5 GHz and Adreno 220 GPU, 1GB RAM, 32GB memory, a 12 Megapixel camera with Exmor R sensor and 1080p video at 30fps, all wrapped in a plastic body with a special Nano coating. So, the specs are there, so let’s see if it’s any good.
In a swift move to change the landscape of mobile photography forever, Nokia unveiled their latest camera flagship device on monday here at MWC. The intention was simple: End the Megapixel race. And end it on top. Having said that, Nokia today blew the competition out of the water by announcing the Nokia 808 Pureview, a Symbian Belle-powered, 41(!!) Megapixel device, with an obvious heavy focus on photography and videorecording. We were lucky enough to get an invite to a Q+A/hands-on session with the great people from Nokia Connects, and here’s what Nokia’s new camera flagship device is all about:
Another discovery from the Fujitsu booth: The Arrows F07-D (check out our hands-on video!), the world’s current thinnest smartphone! Coming at you with an insane 6.7mm body, the F07-D in hand almost feels like it is missing some parts.
Hot on the heels of our Hands on Video, here are some pictures of the funky Fujitsu IS12T! Despite the rather dull name, the IS12T packs a punch. This eye-popping pink device was hidden at Fujitsu, as well as the Microsoft booth and surprised us with some rather nice features.
