HTC Incredible 2 (Leaked Specs and Photo!)

The HTC Incredible 2 looks like a worthy competitor to the upcoming iPhone 5, or perhaps the iPhone 5 is a worthy competitor to the Incredible 2? The Incredible 2 will feature a 4-inch Super LCD WVGA display with the latest version of Android for cellphones, Android 2.3, Gingerbread with Sense. The device will carry an 8MP camera with flash, much like the expected release of the iPhone 5. HTC’s device will be no different than the rest in that they will have a 1.3MP front facing camera.

GameStop Announces Gaming Tablet And Streaming Service

The popular game store, GameStop, has recently announced their plans to offer a game streaming service to tablet PCs. Users who are interested in the service can sign up with GameStop’s rewards program that runs on a similar strategy as Blockbuster and Tower Records. This announcement went public just shortly after GameStop had purchased Spawn Labs. The company has decided to allow Spawn Labs to take over GameStop’s cloud gaming service.

The game retailer also announced plans of releasing GameStop tablets in their retail stores, that is, if the game streaming service is a successful move. I’m not too sure GameStop can develop a tablet that can compete with the current Ipad 2 and company.

NES Console The Size Of Original Cartridge

Dany31412 modded the Mario cartridge to house original NES controllers, as well as your standard video cables required to connect the system to your television.

Quantity Does Not Equal Quality, Firefox 5 Coming Soon

So, the much anticipated Firefox 4 was released just a few weeks ago, and I can’t say the reviews have been too flattering. I downloaded Firefox 4 myself and experienced a crash within the first 24 hours of download. I wanted to give Mozilla the benefit of the doubt, so I checked the mobile version of Firefox 4 on my HTC G2. The reviews were mostly negative. Now I have been a large supporter of Firefox, that is, when I was using a 32-bit operating system. Ever since I switched to 64-bit Windows (necessary to recognize my entire computer memory setup), I’ve had crashes, crashes, and crashes, with Firefox 4 being no improvement.

Samsung And Visa Bring NFC To London 2012 Olympics

Samsung and Visa are currently in talks about a partnership delivering NFC mobile payment technology for the London 2012 Olympics. Both companies are considering rolling an Olympics and Paralympics Games handset in London that will be specially equipped with the new NFC technology. The new phone will work with a Visa payment application and a special SIM card. The consumer will be able to make a purchase with the phone by opening the Visa application and holding it in front of a special contactless reader.

London currently has 60,000 contactless readers in place and VISA is working hard with banks and retailers to make that number even larger. Samsung and VISA sponsored athletes will be among the first to get their hands on the new phone, with consumers later able to buy the phone through…

BREAKING NEWS: Apple iPad Switches To Android

Apple has announced today that they will be releasing their next iPad over to Android technology. Apple will be implementing their critical update, worldwide on June 3rd. Why? Apple claims that their current iOS technology is causing too many complaints with users wanting to return their brand new hardware in exchange for a refund. Apple sees the benefits of switching to Android technology, one of which is the widespread popularity from current Android devices.

The iPads with the new update will feature Google’s operating system, Android 3.0, Honeycomb, making Google even larger, and the sole competitor against Windows Mobile operating system.

The New Sony Style Experience

Sony is going for a new experience for its consumers, a more open and brighter experience. A new Sony Store has opened today in the Westfield Shopping Mall in Century City. To celebrate the grand opening, Sony is giving away over 100 prizes, ranging from a VAIO notebook to a Sony Internet TV. If you’ve been to a Sony Style store before, you would have noticed how cramped the store can feel. Often times you’d find yourself saying “excuse me” just to make sure you can pass through a narrow aisle.

On a crowded day, the store was too uncomfortable to stay in for long, especially if you are just browsing their electronics without having your eyes set on any one piece of technology. Fortunately, Sony has realized this and will be building larger stores allowing for better

Asus Transformer Tablet Priced At $400

Asus is coming out with a new tablet to compete with iPad2 and company. The company’s 10.1-inch tablet will feature an IPS resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, covered with Gorilla Glass. The device will feature an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of flash storage. Unfortunately, the webcam isn’t that impressive as it is only 1.2MP front-facing and 5MP rear camera (much like a phone), but the tablet does have two USB 2.0 slots along with a Bluetooth 2.1 inside.

You can connect the device via the 802.11 b/g/n Wifi network. The unit weighs in at 2.2 pounds and will come in 16GB or 32GB flavors. Fear not for lack of software, Asus will be loading the tablet with…
