The State of Android Tablets (2011): A Survey of Thoughts From Carrypad Staff

Posted on 07 December 2011

prednisone perscription At the beginning of the year, if you would have told me that, by the summer, there would be a dozen different Android tablets available for order from reliable, first tier manufacturers, I would have told you to get outta town. We were likely all desensitized to the constant stream of news that seemingly had the same message: “Company X announced the Y Tablet today. It features blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah. […]

Amazon Kindle Fire: Owner’s Impressions and 13 Apps for Getting Things Done

Posted on 05 December 2011

I have only had my Amazon Kindle Fire for about four days. I have admittedly spent a lot of that time in my Amazon account on a PC setting up my account to access more services and content channels than I have been using in the past. I have also not had much time to put a lot of these apps through their paces on the Fire, but my initial […]

Nokia: More Relevant in the US Than Ever (Maybe)

Posted on 04 November 2011

Nokia has only been relevant for me once in my smartphone life, and that was when I was overseas. Since returning stateside, I have not given Nokia news more than a miniscule glance as I pore over the day’s tech reports. In fact, I have not honestly cared about a Nokia phone release since the mid-90s, when they were one of the top name brands in the US. Until this […]

Samsung Galaxy Note Reviewed — Is the Ink Worth the Size?

Posted on 29 October 2011

The Samsung Galaxy Note may still be up in the air for a US release, but the lucky devils over at Engadget got their hands on the stylus equipped phone for review. Toward the end of the review the reviewer, Zach Honig, notes that “the Galaxy Note is one of those devices that you’ll either completely love or totally hate.” I’m not sure how true this is though. Even though I might despise the […]

HTC Rhyme Unboxing and Overview Video

Posted on 21 October 2011

The HTC Rhyme is an impressive little smartphone. I’ve been playing with it for the last few days and it’s got that signature HTC build-quality. Aside from being well built, I’m digging the size of HTC Rhyme. It isn’t a monster like the aptly named HTC Titan, instead, it fits quite nicely in the hand. It’s light, solid, and doesn’t require abnormally large hands to operate effectively.The HTC Rhyme also […]

Asus Eee Pad Transformer 2 Leaks, Tegra 3 and Ice Cream Sandwich Inside [video]

Posted on 19 October 2011

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer 2 has leaked and Android Authority is showing off the goods. I must say I’m rather impressed with what I’m seeing from Asus here. It appears as though they’ve made the Transformer 2 to look just like one of their recently unveiled Zenbook Ultrabooks, meaning it’s thin and lean. Not only does the Transformer 2 looks extremely svelte, while still retaining it’s signature keyboard-connecting feature, but […]

ThinkPad Tablet — Owner’s Impressions Series: Part III, Front-End Enhancements [video]

Posted on 10 October 2011

In this part of the series, I’m going to talk to you about some of the front-end enhancement that Lenovo made to the ThinkPad Tablet,  and I’ll be steering away from digital inking until the next part of the series. One of the main reasons I am doing this is because I knowingly go ga-ga for digital inking, and when it is done even moderately well, I tend to give […]
