As we begin the dreaded time of back-to-school shopping season there is sure to be a lot of interest in tablets. As we wrote last year, we find tablets to be great for use in school, and over the last few weeks we’ve been testing one of the more recently released tablets that if you’re looking for tablet you should definitely consider: Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1. We have to say, out of all the Android tablets we’ve seen recently this is one that gives the iPad 2 a real strong run for your money.
What are you waiting for? Read on for our full Teen Review of the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
So T-Mobile users– you’ve got an upgrade coming up sometime over the next couple of weeks/months and while you like some of the phones already out there, you really wanna know what T-Mobile’s got planned during those next few weeks or months so you don’t go out and buy something only to really regret it a week later. We’re here to help. While not all of these are confirmed to be coming to T-Mobile (some are just our best guesses based on rumors we’ve been hearing), here are 5 phones that are said to be on their way to T-Mobile that anyone with an upgrade should be really excited for (and trust us– they’re really good).
So Sprint users– you’ve got an upgrade coming up sometime over the next couple of weeks/months and while you like some of the phones already out there, you really wanna know what Sprint’s got planned during the next few weeks or months so you don’t go out and buy something only to really regret it a week later. We’re here to help. While not all of these are confirmed to be coming to Sprint (some are just our best guesses based on rumors we’ve been hearing), here are 5 phones that are said to be on their way to Sprint that if you have an upgrade should be really excited for (and trust us– they’re really good).
If you’ve watched any of the NBA playoffs (or any TV in general) recently, you’ve probably seen an ad or six for one of T-Mobile’s hottest new phones, the Sidekick 4G. The Sidekick 4G is the latest and greatest in the Sidekick line, and the first to pack new features like Android, a 3.5 inch touchscreen, 4G and a 1 GHZ processor– all while still keeping that flip-out full QWERTY keyboard Sidekick users know and love.
While this all sounds great, you probably wondering how does this latest Sidekick 4G hold up in real life? Well, we’ve taken it for a spin the past few weeks and we’ve got everything you need to know after the break in our full teen review. More >
The Infuse 4G has been one of the most anticipated phones AT&T has launched so far this year. And with its massive 4.5 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, fast 1.2 GHZ Hummingbird processor, and incredibly thin design it’s not hard to see why. We’ve been putting this 4G beast through the paces the last couple of weeks and to put it simply, we think its one of AT&T’s top phones out there right now.
So what are you waiting for? Read on for our full teen review of the Samsung Infuse 4G!
Samsung Infuse 4G Price and Release Date Now Official: AT&T’s Fastest 4G Phone Coming May 15th For $200
We had a feeling we’d get more information on AT&T’s 3rd big 4G phone– the Samsung Infuse 4G– this week, and at an AT&T/Samsung event this afternoon more details is just what we got. Coming May 15th, for $200 (with the expected new 2 year contract and data plan), if you’re looking for a blazing fast 4G phone on AT&T this is for you.
And when we say blazing fast 4G we mean blazing fast 4G as the Infuse is the first AT&T 4G phone to support the highest speeds available on their current 4G HSPA+ network (up to 21 Mbps or fast enough to stream YouTube in HD without any buffering). The Infuse 4G is also not just fast on the 4G side, under the hood it’s also incredibly powerful AND it’s also ridiculously thin too. Here are the specs:
- 4.5 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen– Basically, its awesome and should make everything you view on it look incredibly nice and clear.
- 1.2 GHZ processor– For making sure apps and games run quickly as well.
- Android 2.2 with Samsung TouchWiz UI– The Infuse also comes pre-loaded with a special version of Angry Birds with a level exclusive to Infuse 4G owners!
- 8 megapixel back camera with HD video recording on the back with a second 1.3 megapixel one on the front for video chat
- Ridiculously thin design– At 8.99 mm thin (9.24 mm at its thickest part along the bottom) you won’t have any problems putting this in even the tightest of pockets.
- 2 GB microSD card included with support for up to 32 GB– In case you need more storage for your music, movies, pictures and apps.
Samsung and AT&T are also bundling in a $25 Samsung Media Hub (Samsung’s version of the iTunes movie store) gift card with each purchase so you can buy new movies or TV shows to watch on that awesome screen right out of the box (for this we’d recommend looking for a bigger memory card). So yeah, if you’ve got an upgrade on AT&T coming up we’d definitely recommend waiting a few more days for this beast to come out.

We know a lot of you are very eager to learn more about AT&T’s third 4G phone, the Samsung Infuse 4G, and we’ve got some good news for you: it’s almost here. That pic you see above? That’s Walmart advertising the Infuse 4G for a very solid $178.88 on two-year contract with data plan alongside a nice little sticker saying it’s coming May 2011 (click on pic to enlarge). Clicking on the pic of the Infuse 4G on Walmart’s site (it’s on page 9 in the ad) brings up a pop-up– shown below– listing the already familiar specs of the Infuse 4G (8 megapixel camera, 4.5 inch Super AMOLED screen and 1.2 GHZ processor) and a note that it’s available in most stores. Well, we called up a couple of local Walmarts and while they told us they don’t currently have the Infuse 4G in stock, they said they should have them in by the end of this week.
And just to add a little more fuel to the fire here, AT&T and Samsung have sent out invites today for an event this Thursday, May 5th in New York City (though what exactly will be announced at this event is still unknown). Unfortunately we won’t be able to make it out to this event in person, but don’t worry, we’ll have whatever is announced covered for you right here.
So hang tight Infuse 4G fans, it’s almost here.
So Verizon users– you’ve got an upgrade coming up sometime over the next couple of months and while you like some of the phones already out there, you really wanna know what Verizon’s got planned during the next few weeks or months so you don’t go out and buy something only to really regret it a week later. We’re here to help. While not all of these are confirmed to be coming to Verizon (some are just our best guesses based on rumors we’ve been hearing), here are 5 phones that are said to be on their way to Verizon that if you have an upgrade should be really excited for.
We all know T-Mobile’s got some pretty powerful 4G phones coming out this summer (*cough* HTC Sensation 4G *cough*) but what if you’re looking for a powerful, fast all touchscreen 4G phone right now? For that, we’d like to turn your attention to the Samsung Galaxy S 4G, a phone that’s stylish but quite the powerful beast too. Is it worthy of being your next phone though? For all that info and much, much more read on in our full teen review below.
Remember the Samsung Android 4G LTE Phone Verizon and Samsung announced back in January when Verizon announced their upcoming group of 4 new 4G LTE phones? Well, today it’s finally gotten a real name, release date and price: the Samsung Droid Charge coming to a Verizon store near you on April 28th (a week from today) for $299.99 with a new 2 year contract a $29.99 unlimited data plan.
So what will that $299.99 get you? A pretty powerful 4G phone with specs like: an awesome 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, 8 megapixel back camera and 1.3 megapixel front camera for higher quality video chat, Android 2.2 with Swype keyboard and Mobile Hotspot (so you can share your 4G with up to 10 devices. And Verizon is offering this free for a “limited time”), and a 1 GHZ processor (so everything on your phone can keep with that fast 4G awesomeness). No word on the battery life here (Verizon’s first 4G phone– the HTC ThunderBolt– has been said to have pretty bad battery life when on 4G, like only lasting a couple of hours and not even getting close to a full day bad), but I guess we’ll find that out soon enough.
So Verizon users– are you gonna go with this first 4G Droid as your next phone or are you gonna save the $100 and go with something like a ThunderBolt from Amazon (which offers it for a much more affordable $200 with contract) or 3G-only iPhone 4 instead?
