Looking for a new Windows 8 tablet? We just unboxed the Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T and posted some first impressions. Android users who are thinking of making the jump to Windows Phone will definitely want to read about our impressions of the Nokia Lumia 822. And for those of you who love all things Apple, be sure to check out our top jailbreak tweaks for the iPad mini and iOS 6.1.


Looking for some NFC tags? You may have seen Samsung’s TecTiles, but are they really worth your money? Check out our in-depth coverage, and decide for yourself. We also recently took a look at the Satechi Bluetooth Smart Pointer for iOS, Mac, and Windows (spoiler alert: we loved it!), and the Seidio OBEX Combo case for the iPhone 5, which promises to keep your iPhone dry, even when submerged in water.

Good and EVO

Between Carbon, DataSync Beta, and a host of other backup solutions, HTC EVO owners have never had so many backup options as now. HTC EVO 4G LTE owners should also be pleased to know that S-OFF has once again been achieved for the latest OTA update, thereby unlocking the full potential of your phone.
