The new BlackBerry Curve 9360 replaces the older BlackBerry Curve 9300, and aims to still keep its cheap price. But can it convince users to not jump ship to other brands?
The iPhone 4S is not a massive jump from the iPhone 4, and you will be quite familiar with the 4S if you have ever used an iPhone 4.
OK, so another month, another best Android phone out there. This is partly to blame on the massively quick development with Android and the constant competition between the manufacturers. In recent months Samsung seems to be having the upper hand, with the great Galaxy S2, and the recently released Galaxy […]
In my previous post I described my hardware choices when building my new Home Server, something that I am handling as a weekend project. For the purposes of this article I am using a HP Proliant Microserver – a great compact little server with ample expandibility for home use. As a start I […]
With consumerâ€™s ever increasing storage needs and the switchover to laptops, the need for a centralised storage area on your home network is becoming more relevant than ever. Sure, we can shift some of that storage to the cloud, but SAâ€™s tragic state of broadband has made this more difficult than it should be.

There is a number of Android tablets on the market, and certain manufacturers go out and flood it with devices of all shapes and sizes. The Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet is a comparative breath of fresh air due to first class build quality and stylus based handwriting recognition.
With the current spread of Android devices it has become increasingly difficult to choose the best one out there – each manufacturer has a seemingly better phone than the next.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v (also known as the P7100) is a piece of hardware with an unfortunate story behind it. That little extra “v” means that this Vodafone exclusive differs from the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that will start appearing on South African shelves in the next month or two. Will you be worse off with the 10.1v than the retooled, sleeker 10.1?
At the end of 2010 Microsoft launched its fresh new Windows Phone 7 smartphone operating system, and the initial reviews were quite positive. These devices were all vetted by Microsoft to ensure that they comply with their rules on things like hardware design, buttons, shape, etc. Problem was, with all this control, the resulting devices were pretty similiar to each other. Sure, you could find some specification differences between them, but there was not any that stood out from the rest. But Samsung waited a while and released a Windows Phone device which not only looks better, but performs better than the other WP7 devices.
The Motorola XOOM was the first device to sport Google’s brand-spanking new Android OS designed specifically for the tablet form factor: Honeycomb. We’ve managed to get our hands on one, and spend a few days with it before it lands on South Africa’s shores.
