With Chromebook Pixel, Google loses sight of the Chrome OS market

With Chromebook Pixel, Google loses sight of the Chrome OS market

Today, Google announced the Chromebook Pixel, and on paper at least, the Pixel is a beautiful laptop. It features a 12.85″ touch screen display with a brilliant 2,560 x 1,700 resolution. That’s over 4 million pixels and a whopping 239 PPI, much akin to that of Apple’s Retina MacBook Pro line. There’s 4GB of RAM,…

Through the looking glass: Google Glass comes to life with new video, website

Through the looking glass: Google Glass comes to life with new video, website

By all accounts, I’m a Google Glass skeptic. While I find wearable technologies such as smartwatches, fitness bands, and other minimally connected devices extremely useful, the thought of being continually connected to a device over a body part through which we process an incomprehensible amount of information already seems to be overkill. I can’t shake…

HTC launching the One today, will be DOA unless they can market it

HTC launching the One today, will be DOA unless they can market it

Today, HTC will unveil the HTC One, their latest superphone geared toward the high-end of the smartphone market. It’ll be pretty, powerful (we’ll bring you specs and a roundup of first impressions once the device launches), and many an Android enthusiast will likely be blown away by the device in total. But unless HTC decides…

Rumor: HP looking to Android for upcoming tablet, smartphone

Rumor: HP looking to Android for upcoming tablet, smartphone

Rumors emerged yesterday that computer maker HP intends to build an Android tablet in the hopes of breaking back into the tablet market. This wouldn’t be their first entrant into the tablet market; the company released the HP TouchPad running the now-defunct WebOS platform in July 2011. The TouchPad failed to steal customers away from…

5 Reasons a Facebook Phone doesn’t make sense

5 Reasons a Facebook Phone doesn’t make sense

New rumors are emerging today about the HTC Myst (via: HTC Source), the latest “Facebook Phone” being developed by Facebook and HTC. To squash the rumors entirely from the outset, it makes absolutely no sense for Facebook to make a phone, and we have no reason to believe they’re looking to get in that game at…

HTC’s plans for growth in 2013? It’s the emerging markets, stupid!

HTC's plans for growth in 2013? It's the emerging markets, stupid!

HTC was once a name synonymous with Android. From the original days of the G1, MyTouch, and Google’s first Nexus phone (the appropriately named Nexus One), the very first purchasers of Android smartphones likely owned an HTC device at some point, and the future was extremely bright for a previously small player in the smartphone…

BlackBerry launches Z10 and Q10 smartphones, but will it be enough?

BlackBerry launches Z10 and Q10 smartphones, but will it be enough?

After a very long engagement, BlackBerry 10 has finally been released to the masses. Well, the masses in Europe, anyway. The full-touch BlackBerry Z10 went on sale in the UK yesterday, and will launch in Canada, China, and a few other locations on February 5th, and will finally make its way to the US in…

Does the market for a third smartphone OS even exist?

Does the market for a third smartphone OS even exist?

Last week, we took an in depth look at which platform we thought would win the battle to become the third major smartphone operating system. Ultimately, we gave the edge to BlackBerry 10, which has left us with much more excitement than our experience with Windows Phone 8 garnered. With BlackBerry 10 launching this week, we will now ask a few more difficult questions about the market itself, and whether it’ll actually bear a third platform vying for consumer pockets.

BlackBerry 10 will launch this week in hopes of vaulting RIM back into smartphone relevance. To say the company has a long, uphill battle ahead would be a massive understatement; Android and iOS now make up nearly 90% of the smartphone OS market, with Windows Phone failing to gain traction above 5% and BlackBerry continuing its monumental slide from its former days of glory.

The biggest question weighing on everyone’s minds lately is “Can BlackBerry and Windows Phone be successful? Is there truly a market for three or four major smartphone operating systems in the mobile arena?” Read on to hear our take on this important question.

When it comes to the second screen, HTC’s Mini solution is a non-starter

When it comes to the second screen, HTC's Mini solution is a non-starter

2013 is the year of the second screen. We’ve seen smart watches from the likes of Pebble, Cookoo, and i’m Spa (makers of the i’m Watch), and wearable eyeglasses from Google and Vuzix as these companies look to bring the second screen to life. Though these devices will almost certainly be niche products and not…

Nokia Lumia 822 by Verizon Wireless Review

Nokia Lumia 822 by Verizon Wireless Review

The Lumia 822 is the first Windows Phone 8 device to grace Verizon’s network, and is the first Windows Phone device to appear on the network since the HTC Trophy, which launched back in May of 2011. Nokia’s 822 isn’t the only Windows Phone 8 device on Verizon’s network, however, as HTC’s flagship Windows Phone 8X launched just days after the 822 was made available back in November. Samsung’s ATIV Odyssey launched just yesterday, leaving consumers with a trio of Windows Phone devices on Big Red’s 4G LTE network battling for your hard-earned dollar. Does the Lumia 822 have what it takes to edge out the competition and become your Windows Phone device of choice? Read on for the full review.
