HTC One mini Review: The Awkward, RAM-Deprived Middle Child

The HTC One mini is, in many respects, very similar to its larger, older sibling, the HTC One. It has a [mostly] aluminum body, BoomSound speakers (though they've been noticeably downgraded), and HTC's Ultrapixel camera. It runs Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5, and its 720p S-LCD2 display with Gorilla Glass 3 is breathtakingly good for a "mid-range" phone.

So, how does it cost a full $170 less than the HTC One?

The Smart Cube Gives DSLR Cameras The Ability To Run Android Apps, Promises To Reshape The Photo-Taking Experience

There's a reason the world has transitioned to HDTVs. It's not that there was anything wrong with the concept of the television, it's just that the old giant boxes that occupied so much space in our homes were entirely the wrong shape for the task at hand.

What We Use, 2013 Edition: The Apps, Tools, Devices, And Other Stuff Cameron Can't Do Without

My first Android phone was the original Motorola Droid. The day it was released I happened to walk into Verizon to get an issue with my bill cleared up; I had been following the Droid leaks for some weeks before, so I was really excited to check it out in person.

Samsung Galaxy NX Priced – Coming In October For $1,599 Body-Only Or $1,699 With 18-55mm Lens

Samsung really crossed the streams when it announced the Galaxy NX Android camera back in June – mashing up a high-end mirrorless camera with Android. It's a rather bizarre idea, but actually looks like an interesting device. Samsung neglected to announce a price, though. Well, now it has, and you're not going to like it. The Galaxy NX will cost $1,599 for the body with no lens, or $1,699 for the body and a standard 18-55mm zoom lens.

Make Room: Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Drops Into AT&T's Lineup For $149.99

AT&T just launched a large amount of phones all at once, but none are so large as Samsung's Galaxy Mega 6.3.

Kickstarter For New 3G-Connected Android Smartwatch That's Just Kind Of Terrible Going Strong Hours After Funding Begins

I really try to understand that innovation is a process of refining. Of failure and success. You have your good ideas, and your have your not-so-good ones. But the smartwatch market seems to not be learning... anything from the not so good ones. Meet the Omate TrueSmart, the latest darling of Kickstarter's seemingly insatiable smartwatch fetish.
