Dungeon Hunter III gets teased by Gameloft

0

Gameloft this week dropped more deets on Dungeon Hunter III, coming soon to an Android (or iOS) device near you. It's promising better graphics and gameplay, plus co-op multiplayer. No word on when it'll be available, or what it's going to cost, but judging from the scant few seconds of gameplay teased on its podcast, it's going to be a worth upgrade.

Skip to 2:36 in the video after the break to take a gander.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus strolls through the FCC, shows off its Verizon LTE and more

28

Earlier today we saw some more proof of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in Verizon's internal systems, and here we have the device passing through the FCC. While we patiently wait for Verizon's big announcement of the device, we can be happy to see the device moving along the approval path. The device comes complete with an LTE radio, as well as a CDMA radio, but no GSM radio in sight here. Now we sit and patiently wait for Big Red to bring us an official launch date so we can get our hands on it!

HTC Rezound review

41

It's going to be a very busy holiday season for Verizon Wireless. With last week's release of the Droid RAZR, Big Red has made it very clear that it wants to be, at least for a few months, atop the Android heap. Now, with this week's release of the HTC Rezound, Verizon has upped the ante even further with a powerhouse of a device that skimps not on the specs. The Galaxy Nexus will close out the trifecta, leaving consumers with a pretty difficult choice. Of the three new releases, which one is worthy of your money? And which one is worth signing over the next two years of your life for?

I can't help but think of the HTC Rezound as the awkward middle child in Verizon's three-sibling family. If the RAZR is the oldest with a reputation of being able to take care of itself, and the Galaxy Nexus is the youngest who gets all the attention, where does it leave the Rezound? Is it the silent star who'll go on to outshine its siblings, or will it be the brother who lives with its parents till he's 40? I think it'll manage to avoid both extremes, and you should read on to see why. 

 


Jaw-dropping display. Beats Audio is the real deal and it sets a new bar for music on a smartphone. Verizon's LTE is still unbelievably fast.


It's really, really hefty. HTC seems to have overlooked style for function. Battery life could be better. Oh, and did we mention it doesn't have Ice Cream Sandwich?



If the Galaxy Nexus weren't right around the corner, I'd be singing the Rezound's praises from the rooftops. If you are a music junkie and want a beautiful display atop a powerhouse device (with LTE!) right this instant, the Rezound is for you. For the next few weeks, it'll be the best Android device on the market. If you could care less about Beats and are even contemplating the Galaxy Nexus, I'd wait it out.

Galaxy Nexus inches ever closer to Verizon stores

22

This is way, way inside baseball, but what we've got here is a look at a whole mess o' Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphones en route to Verizon. This gives us absolutely no idea of when -- or if, actually -- we'll see phones in stores (presumably an order like this means in-store sales, and not direct fulfillment only), but it's yet another step in the process, no?

Thanks, anon!

Verbatim announces 2nd-generation portable keyboard for tablets

5

Many of us now-a-days are trying to replace lugging around those clunky laptops with a new shiny Android tablet, but one thing that holds many back is attempting to type for long periods of time on any given tablet. Sure there are many great keyboard replacement options available, but that still isn't ideal, which is why Verbatim has brought to us their 2nd Gen keyboard. This keyboard offers many great features, such as 

  • Now compatible with iPad, iPad 2, iPhone, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Motorola Xoom and other Android tablet devices with both Bluetooth connectivity and HID keyboard support
  • Ultra-compact design- Keyboard folds and stores in carry case for maximum portability
  • Media console- Includes enhanced volume and digital music controls
  • Now pairs with up to six devices at one time
  • Extras- A carrying case for the keyboard and iPhone stand are also included, providing even greater freedom and mobility
  • Enhanced Function Keys- New, easy-to-use function keys for cut, copy, paste and undo and more

The keyboard will be on sale at most major retailers, and carry a price tag of $79, but that is only a small price to pay if you are looking to be able to crank out some school papers, or write a nice long winded response to an email you receive.

EVO Design 4G review

15

Since the EVO 4G came out many moons ago, Sprint promised us we'd see more in their EVO brand, and it delivered. Soon after we saw the EVO Shift 4G, then the EVO 3D, and now the EVO Design 4G.

So how does the newest in the EVO line hold up? Can it hang with the best of them or will it be relegated to the discount rack? Is one processor enough? Will it come in white? Does it blend?

If you're looking for answers to these questions, strap yourself in, buckle up, and join me after the break.


Aluminum unibody feels solid and the screen is bright and gorgeous. Phone is easily pocketable and lightweight.


Battery life can leave some in the lurch, and the aluminum body can lead to some unwanted slippage.



The EVO Design 4G is another good Android phone on Sprint. The smaller screen and single processor all justify the lower price tag, but there's no qualities that make this phone stand out as the phone to buy for the cost.

Amazon releases Price Check app just in time for the holidays

9

Amazon has released it app Price Check by Amazon to both the Android Market and its  own Appstore. Price Check by Amazon is an app that allows you to compare prices for products across a variety of retailers.

When searching for the product you want, you have the option of scanning a barcode, speaking the name of the product, taking a picture or simply typing the name. Once the search engine finds what you're looking for, you'll see the product page with three tabs. The first and most important is the Prices tab, which aggregates prices from numerous sources. Description brings up details about the item you're viewing in case you want to know more information and finally Reviews, which displays Amazon Customer Reviews so you can see what others think before you make a purchase.

The app is very handy and will prove useful this holiday season when you're trying to buy presents at the lowest possible prices. As mentioned above, this free app can be found in both the Amazon Appstore and Android Market. We've got links to the Market version after the break.
