T-Mobile G-Slate Tablet Review: Great Features, But…

Written on April 24, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

With a widescreen display, Google Android's Honeycomb, and a 3D-camera, does the T-Mobile G-Slate have what it takes to dominate the tablet market? Not really.

From the makers of the G2x smartphone, your friendly neighborhood T-Mobile, comes its latest tablet out in the market, the T-Mobile G-Slate. Powered by the sweet-succulent juice of Android Honeycomb, a unique widescreen display, a 4G network, plus a 3D camera, the G-Slate has the makings of becoming the legendary iPad 2 killer. Unfortunately, despite all these savvy features, it’s the tablet’s very advantage that spells its downfall.

The T-Mobile G-Slate has a smooth and satisfying touch with a thickness of 0.49 inch plus a matte finish at the back. It provides a nice comforting grip where you don’t have to worry that it will slip from the palm of your hand. It’s screen is 8.9-inch big, a humble size compared to the iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom tablets. But it’s unique widescreen display somehow gives that unique appeal.

Apple had enough of the iPhone and iPad 'copies', as the company sues Samsung Electronics for copyright charges.

If a friend accidentally picks up your Samsung Galaxy S 4G phone instead of his Apple iPhone 3GS, then something must be wrong. And it looks like Apple realized this, as the fruit company sues Samsung Electronics for allegedly copying the design aesthetics of the iPhone and iPad. The lawsuit was filed over at the Northern District of California last Friday.

From the interface, the technology, down to the design style, a user can easily mistake one for the other. And Apple is charging Samsung for intellectual property violations and damages.

Top 5 Free Android OS Games for Your Smartphones

Written on March 12, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

Android OS may look like it means business on the outside, but deep inside, it's got loads of fun games that will make you forget that Infinity Blade is still on the iOS.

The Google Android OS isn’t particularly the hub where people can get the best gaming apps usually available to the iPhone. Though we’re still hoping for developers to make Android versions of their hit titles like Infinity Blade, Mirror’s Edge, Plants vs. Zombies, there are other games on the Android OS that may tickle our fancy and perhaps make us forget how awesome the iPhone OS games are even for just a moment. We’ve all come to admit that Google Android OS is more business or utility driven, but that doesn’t mean Google doesn’t know how to have some superficial, mind-numbing fun, right?

Hit the break to check out 5 of the best Android games available on the Android Market to date.

Microsoft Windows isn't ready for the big leagues yet as it lets Apple and Google Android take all the glory.

We’ve seen the iPad 2, and the Android HoneyComb is just aching to get a release soon. With Apple, HP, Motorola, and several companies all ready to go for an epic war of the tablets this 2011, we ask: Where in the world is PC Microsoft? Well according to BusinessWorld, it seems that the company Bill Gates forged back in the 80’s is about to sit this one out until late 2012. Yes, no tablet version of Microsoft Windows until an iPad 3 or Android Banana Milk Shake (not real name) comes around.

Google just dropped this bomb of a video on its Android YouTube page, and it is the first real look of the Android 3.0 operating system, known as Honeycomb. Check out the video after the skip.

Google just released a video on its Android YouTube page about Android 3.0 Honeycomb. The first look of Honeycomb implies that Android 3.0 is indeed for tablets alone. Based on the video, Android 3.0 will have a best in class web browsing, will support millions of books from Google eBooks, tablet optimized Gmail, redesigned YouTube, built-in video calling from Google Talk, and Google Maps 3D. Still, the biggest transition from Gingerbread to Honeycomb is the latter’s redone user interface. Android 3.0 carries out Android 2.3’s darker, more professional and polished look to a very sophisticated tablet experience. And the built-in video calling from Google Talk is really a go!

Check out the Android 3.0 preview video after the skip.
