There were moments during my two-week period with the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, the biggest and most expensive tablet on the market, when I thought, “Huh, this could probably replace my laptop.” What do I use my laptop for? Browsing the internet; playing music; taking notes; writing blog posts; playing games. Samsung’s newest tablet is

Twitter issues a lot of Android betas — it’s up to version 101 on this 5.2 build — but the recent versions have added and removed a number of features that users will both appreciate and find vexing. First, the good news: Twitter has recently added the ability to reply, retweet and favourite from the
Earlier today, we published what appeared to be an authentic advertisement of the All New HTC One from Australian carrier, Telstra. Now, a purported field guide for in-store sales reps has leaked, courtesy, as well, of GSM Arena. The specs sheet appears to confirm what we’ve been able to glean over the past few weeks:
WhatsApp for Android got an update this week that allows users to pay for their friends’ subscriptions in one-, three- or five-year increments. The feature was the biggest in a relatively busy change log, which includes the option to hide profile details, such as your avatar, status and time last online, and a new camera

While Instagram 5.1 for Android doesn’t add any new features, it really doesn’t need to: other than
I was an unabashed fan of the original Wind-up Knight, not only because developer Robot Invader takes Android as seriously (if not more so) as iOS, but because the always-running platform mechanics were some of the best I’d seen on a mobile device.

If you’re running Nokia’s cheapest and best-selling Lumia device, the 520, your Lumia Black GDR3 update is available on Rogers, Chatr, Koodo and TELUS. The build number is 3056.40000.1402.0001. While not every feature will be available for the 520 due to its hardware limitations, the core features, like an improved camera experience, better multitasking and Glance
An advertisement from Telstra down in Australia has exposed the final piece of the All New HTC One puzzle: what exactly are those two camera sensors for? While we have suspected their cooperative properties for months now, we know now, thanks to a leaked full-pager, that together they are called Duo Camera.
Dropcam’s CEO once told me that it is a technology company that makes hardware. Looking at this Android update today, I understand that assertion completely. Though the company recently unveiled Dropcam Pro, a higher-resolution cloud security camera, it’s in the software that the innovation keeps happening. With Dropcam for Android 2.6, the interface is easier
