Qualcomm touts Augmented Reality as ultimate Android benchmark

This week we're coming at you straight from Qualcomm as they move through a series of talks and keynotes as their Mobile Benchmark Workshop commences. In one of the first events of the week, Qualcomm's devotion to testing their own devices with a benchmark test called Vellamo - perhaps you've heard of it before - is quite clear. In addition to speaking about how it's not just the relatively wide variety of tests this app runs your device through that matters, specifically in the world of web browsing, they've made it clear that in the end its the user experience that's most important.

Samsung Galaxy S III AT&T and T-Mobile Review

In the Samsung Galaxy S III we've got the best-selling smartphone line returning with a surprisingly reserved attack on our senses. That's not necessarily a bad thing. It appears as if Samsung has taken what they've sewn in the Galaxy S and the Galaxy S II (and every Galaxy in-between) and has created a device that's not taking a whole lot of risks, but instead is precision tuned beyond any of the manufacturer's past devices. What we'll be doing today in this review of the AT&T and T-Mobile versions of the Galaxy S III is looking at how the two different versions compare and at what it will mean to have two friends or associates using the devices together - in other words, we're going to see how well they share with one another.

AT&T HTC One X Review

The HTC One X for AT&T is a different beast from the original (international) release in two rather important ways. First it's got a completely different processor, made by Qualcomm instead of NVIDIA, and second here it's carried by AT&T on a 2-year contract in the USA. Will this non-international release stir up the same positive reactions we had to the first release of this super hero phone, or are the two changes we're seeing here in software and hardware going to push this device in the wrong direction entirely?
