Compared to 7 or 8 inches, 10 may seem like a lot to work with. But you know what? Boom, here's 12. These extra 2 inches come to us courtesy of Samsung. The company unveiled the new Galaxy Pro series at this year's CES, and the devices have gradually percolated to consumers throughout the world since. Today Samsung has shared pricing and availability information for Canada. The Galaxy PRO devices will roll out to various retailers starting now until the end of March.

This year we've seen slimmed down versions of the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One, and while corners were cut to cram these flagships into smaller form factors, there's a real need for competent phones with tinier displays. So what's a competitor to do? Why, release a slimmed down version of its flagship as well. LG has now teased a smaller version of the G2, creatively referred to as the MINI, along with an announcement date.
English rock band Radiohead could just release another album, but there are certain experiences that music alone cannot provide. So the band has worked with design agency Universal Everything to create an experimental piece of software that occupies the space somewhere between being an app and a game. Its name is PolyFauna, and, really, make of it what you will.
Handy Photo is a mobile photo editor that can seemingly work magic with such features as un-cropping, the ability to remove objects from a photo, and the option to apply any number of its impressive filters. We put version 1.0 of the app through its paces last year and saw a lot of promise. Now Handy Photo is making the jump to the big 2.0, and it's bringing with it a new UI.
Paying bills sucks. Everything about the entire experience, from reading the email/letter, writing the umpteenth check/visiting the umpteenth website, and kissing that hard-earned money goodbye, is considerably unpleasant. Then there's the consistently broken promise of doing better next month only to find that after forgoing all of that fast food, you actually managed to spend more money than the month before. Again, it sucks. The new Mobilligy won't make it not suck, but there's a chance it will at least make it suck less.
The Qualcomm Toq occupies this awkward space in the smartwatch race. Like the Pebble, it uses a display similar to e-ink that sacrifices fancy animations and responsiveness for battery life, only it manages to one-up its competitor by supporting more colors than black and white. Unfortunately, at $349, it's even more expensive than the already ludicrously overpriced Galaxy Gear. Yet for people who purchased one anyway, version 1.3 introduces new features and major bug fixes that should make using the watch a more pleasant experience.
Smartphones are convenient, but keeping them charged is not. Charging cables get tangled easily and, despite being lightweight and portable, aren't all that useful on the go. External battery packs can provide a ton of juice when away from a power outlet, but if you forget to keep them charged, you might as well leave them at home. The JUMP Kickstarter project alleviates this issue by combining the two. Now your smartphone cable can double as your external backup battery.
Many Android users have dreamed of owning a Nokia-manufactured phone running their favorite mobile OS, and that day may arrive sooner than they expect. According to a story recently published by the Wall Street Journal, Nokia plans to release a phone running Android later this month, possibly unveiling it at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The story doesn't contain any photos of the upcoming handset, but here is an image that @evleaks shared just over a month ago.
After such a long wait, the Nexus 7 is finally ready to make its Verizon Wireless debut. For the better part of a year now, Google has offered an affordable tablet with cellular radios tucked away inside that the US's largest carrier refused to activate (granted, there were ways to get around this). But now, the Big Red and the Nexus 7 are cuddling up just in time for Valentine's Day.
CloudMagic isn't a new app, but people are constantly on the lookout for an alternative to default Gmail app that, for various reasons, doesn't meet their needs. If you personally need an email client that can support multiple accounts spread across different sites, something with lightning fast search, and something that doesn't make your eyes bleed, CloudMagic may just be the free app you've been looking for.
First, Some Background
CloudMagic comes to us from a developer of the same name, the folks who previously offered a zippy way to search through Gmail, Twitter, Exchange, Dropbox, and many other accounts.
