It's been a busy time on the Android planetoid this week with plenty of handsets and tablets making their way through the TechRadar office.
The flood of Android tablets in 2011 has dried up considerably since the iPad failed to do anything other than #win, but we've seen a couple of good ones of late. The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is the latest to receive the TR hand model treatment and offers a decent experience at a great price, so we'll be interested to see how it performs.
Check out our review of Samsung's new tablet as well as some decent new smartphones below…
The start of 2012 was absolutely dominated by the new iPad. Rumours, leaks, announcements, reviews--the iPad 3 fed and watered tech and mainstream media writers and readers alike for months.
But since then, it's been the Samsung Galaxy S3 that's been getting all the attention – it's probably the most hotly-anticipated Android smartphone ever, and we've been testing it all week. That's not all, either...
Between the failure of Palm’s webOS platform after HP took over and that company’s ongoing financial headaches, the news that most of the remaining development team for the open-source Enyo framework is heading for the exits should be little surprise.
Laugh if you want, but we love Jamba Juice. We also happen to rather like PayPal, which makes it easy to spend the money we make selling our old junk on eBay that would be otherwise cluttering the house. So it would seem that being able to buy our Peach Pleasure or Strawberries Forever smoothies at Jamba Juice with our PayPal account would be a match made in heaven -- assuming there was one near us, which there is sadly not. But for those who do, enjoy! We hate you. (Just kidding!) Here’s what else is happening for this Thursday, May 24, 2012.
Ladies and gentlemen, “Googorola” is now official. Google co-founder and CEO Larry Page took to the company’s blog to announce that the acquisition of Motorola Mobility is complete, setting the stage for some interesting days ahead in the smartphone wars.
While there’s no specific word about the HTC One X and EVO 4G LTE that have been delayed by U.S. Customs last week following an ITC exclusion order, the Taiwanese handset maker claims progress is being made to get the devices moving onto American shores again.
What do you get if you combine a review of the world's first £7000 glasses-free 3D, 4K TV with a review of the best real-world LCD TV we've ever tested?
Why, it's the TechRadar reviews section of course!
It's been a cracking week for TV enthusiasts, and it doesn't end there either. Toshiba continues to amaze us with its 2012 products offering great performance at unbelievable prices, and we've also seen a great TV from Panasonic and the awesome new Android tablet from Asus. Boom!
We’ve been reporting on International Trade Commission decisions for what seems like forever, but it appears that one of them is finally making an impact -- two of HTC’s latest handsets are being “indefinitely delayed” by U.S. customs as the result of an ITC ban Apple won against the handset manufacturer late last year.
There's a reason why Apple is suing Samsung in just about every major world territory -- it feels threatened, and so it might.
Samsung is now the top-selling phone manufacturer on the planet, and that's entirely thanks to the wildly popular Galaxy range of Android smartphones. The latest such handset, the Galaxy S3, has enjoyed the kind of build-up and reception normally reserved for iDevices and that's no mean feat.
The stats don't lie, either -- over half a million people read our hands-on in just 12 hours!
So do check out our Galaxy S3 page below, as well as all our other reviews this week. It's been a good one. Happy weekend!
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: A manufacturer specializing in Android handsets unleashes a dizzying torrent of models to confuse customers, then blames a steep drop in net profit on one device sold by a rival.
