Samsung Galaxy R: The Younger Brother of the Galaxy S II
10 Aug 2011 - By Omar Mariño

Just a few days ago, Korean company Samsung confirmed the existence of the Galaxy R,  a high-end smartphone that complements the line where the Samsung Galaxy S II is, apparently, the flagship product of the company in the current mobile industry (at least regarding mobile phones). Well, now Samsung is also confirming, through an official press release, some features of this smartphone and the availability in Europe. However, the Korean company has not indicated a list of specific countries where it will become available this fall.

Phones, Phones, and Peripherals that Turn Phones Into Guns?
23 Jun 2011 - By Omar Mariño

Phones aren’t just phones anymore and I’m okay with that. However, I’m not okay with everyone trying to copycat the iPhone and make a million dollars like they came up with the idea. That’s why, this time around, we’re looking at some of the coolest handhelds I’ve ever seen. The new Nokia N950 and the Dual-screen prototype from Imerj may not be available yet (or ever in the prototype’s case) but knowing that there are companies out there that are thinking out of the box is enough to get me excited.

There’s nothing saying you can’t strap one to your head and walk around a comic convention or just walk down the street to make an interesting YouTube video. Whatever you plan to use for the helmet cam, you have to know that it has come a long way in just a short time—even models that were top of the line last year have taken a backseat to the new crowd. So here are four cameras that will do what you need them to. They will work in pretty much any situation. Read more >>

Cell Phones / Batteries – Big Options for Your Smart Phones
13 May 2011 - By Omar Mariño

That last post about Nintendo 3DS batteries got me interested in other battery-extending tech out there so I dug a little deeper. Apparently Ye Olde iPhone and the HTC Thunderbolt are rather notorious for having less-than-stellar battery lives. While the Thunderbolt’s issues might partially be due to the incredible amount of power its high speed LTE mode consumes, the iPhone has been plagued by weak battery life since it went 3G.
