Dialed in on 007

Sony Xperia TL

Sony has struggled to create a successful smartphone in a U.S. Android handset market stuffed tighter than Oddjob in a dinner jacket.

Sharpening its edge

Motorola RAZR i

Motorola Android smartphone launches seem like a dime a dozen recently, but their latest offering is a cut above and, unfortunately, beyond (as in, beyond U.S. shores). The RAZR i is the new buff uncle in Razr family tree, thanks to its powerful 2Ghz Intel Atom processor, and is the first Moto device to feature…

RAZR'ing the bar

HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE

If you can’t palm a basketball, you can forget about holding most Android phones these days. Verizon’s recent addition to the Droid Incredible family is quite the unwieldy mouthful, but the same thing can’t be said about its proportions. The so-called HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE’s highlights include Android 4.0 (with HTC’s Sense 4.0 on…

Primed for 2012

Asus Transformer Prime Infinity

Last fall, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime became the pace car in the Android tablet rat race. Now just four months later, Asus has announced a new flagship that’s souped-up for 2012, ditches the old vowel-overkill “Eee” brand, and gives previous early adopters the middle finger in the process. The Infinity’s body style is…

Who says enterprise has to be dull?

Lenovo IdeaTab K2 & S2 Tablets

Lenovo has made it clear that it intends to grab a piece of the Android pie with its K2 and S2 IdeaTab tablets. Both of the portable, but not groundbreakingly thin, 10.1-inch tablets will run Android 4.0. The higher-end K2 is one of the first tablets to feature a 1080p screen. Nvidia’s quad-core Tegra 3…

The world's first Android 4.0 Smart TV

Lenovo IdeaTV K91

After fizzling out with its initial release, Google TV is expected to make a resurgence this year at CES thanks to updated software and the renewed support of TV manufacturers. Lenovo’s 55-inch, LED backlit, IdeaTV K91 does include a touch of Google on the software side, but it’s a customized version of Android 4.0 (a.k.a…

More than meets the eee

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime

The Eee Pad Transformer Prime is Asus’s second impressive attempt at combining the benefits of a laptop and tablet into one sleek package. On specs alone, the device tramples the current competition and is one of the few Android devices in our opinion that might give the iPad 2 a run for its money. A…

Android's New Poster Child

Samsung Galaxy Nexus

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the latest showcase device developed under Google’s close supervision, built for one purpose: to make Android’s latest incarnation look like the belle of the smartphone ball. Its 4.65-inch, curved contour glass, HD Super AMOLED display boasting a legitimate 1,280 x 720 (720p) resolution is just the start of a stellar…
