If you are fond of the Samsung Android phones but cannot afford the high end ones like the Galaxy S2 then you can try the new Galaxy Ace. This cute phone which resembles an iPhone to an extent offers a good blend of features and performance. The design of the phone is simple yet sleek with a grip friendly back cover and glossy front. Despite its plastic body the phone feels reassuringly solid in hands. It is rather light.
The Touch screen interface of the phone is quick but the display is not very sharp owing to its 320×480-pixel resolution. It does not have the super bright AMOLED display Samsung is known for. It has a regular LCD but that is quite easy to read even in daylight. The battery life of the Ace is superb and moderate users can expect it to last for more than two days on a single recharge. That is really nice for an Android phone. Connectivity wise it offers GPS and WiFi as well.
The Ace runs Android 2.2 Froyo which may not be the latest version but still offers a lot for the average users. Ace has a superb web browser and you may not feel the need for Opera Mini. The only drawback is that it does not support Flash playback. Its portable hotspot feature is awesome which negates the need of buying 3G dongle. You can also download tons of apps from the Android Market along with games. As far as multimedia goes the Acer has a 5MP camera with LED flash.

HTC the Taiwanese cell phone handsets maker is on a high these days with its Android and Windows Phone 7 devices making the right noises in tech circles. It has a number of handsets lined up for release and they have all drawn rave reviews from the tech experts. The latest handset announced by the company is Sensation. It is going to replace the Desire HD as it looks like and has some noteworthy features. The USP of the model is its gorilla glass protected screen. The contoured glass adds to the looks of the model and it saves the screen from scratches says HTC.
The body of the phone is made up of unibody aluminum as is the case with a number of HTC phones. Its 4.3 inch screen may seem large for a smart phone but it is great to use. The phone has a Super LCD qHD display with 540 x 960 resolution. It comes close to the iPhone 4’s retina display. The images look sharp on it and colors pop out. Owing to the screen’s 16: 9 aspect ratio, watching movies on it is sheer pleasure. There is a front facing camera with 1.2 MP resolution for video calling. At the back side there is an 8MP camera with twin LED flash. It also has 2 microphones for enabling stereo recording.
The camera is good but it falls short of the quality of the camera used in Nokia N8. The camera is also capable of recording FullHD video at 30 FPS. The phone is powered by a mighty dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that runs at a speed of 1.2 GHz. HTC says that the dual core CPU helps in faster browsing, app launch and multi tasking. The phone runs Android 2.3 and there is an improved version of HTC Sense atop it. The screen animations look very smooth as well.

The new Toshiba Portege R830 has been released as a successor to the R700 and it has some similarities with the predecessor. The new Portege R830 is powered by a new Intel Core series CPU and also packs in faster interfaces like USB 3.0 which makes it a suitable contender for the demanding users looking for a portable yet powerful laptop. The lightweight laptop is solidly built and the magnesium alloy chassis is the proof of that. It impresses with its stellar battery life which even beats the MacBook Pro 13 inch model. You can customize the configuration as per your need.
It is not as svelte as the MacBook Air or the Samsung’s Series 9 laptops but it is pretty lightweight. The isolated island type keys are used in this model. The Touchpad is quite large and smooth to use. Sadly the R830 does not have a backlit keyboard but the typing experience is awesome. Toshiba packs in a number of utilities with this model and some of them are quite useful.
The laptop’s 13.3 inch screen offers a 1,366 x 768 resolution which is typical. The screen’s viewing angles are not great as such. The laptop comes with Intel’s new WiDi technology and WiMax. For storage there is the 640GB 5,400rpm HDD. It performs slightly slower than the new Sandy Bridge Core i5 MacBook Pro but outperforms Samsung’s new 9 Series. The new Integrated Intel HD graphics is better than any other onboard graphics solution but it still lacks the punch to run the latest games at smooth frame rates.
