In order to develop the new phone, about which not much is known, Nokia done one extremely unusual step. The phone was given the code name Normandy, although it has been tested under different names.

We all know that managers in big companies have a big, big paycheck, which we can only dream about, but what about the lawyers representing the companies? Yes, they have very expensive fees too.

Sony Xperia ZR review

Sony Xperia ZR comes from Xperia Z mini family. It’s something like a “downsized” version of Xperia Z. With a 4.5- inch HD display, 13MP camera and the Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, this phone is everything but average. Compared to SONY’s high-end devices , Xperia ZR had to stay somewhere in the middle. However, this doesn’t mean that this is bad thing. On the contrary, it is high-middle class phone, which is reflecting the price. In addition, this model offers standard SONY water resistance, which only adds to his appeal. This is especially important because the Xperia ZR competes with rivals such as HTC Mini One, Nexus 4 and the Samsung Galaxy S3. (more…)

iPad mini 2 review

iPad mini 2 is the latest device from Apple aimed to battle for the small tablet market. It seems that the manufacturer succeeded because this device has installed shiny new A7 chip and a whopping 128GB of internal storage (though the most expensive version). As icing on the cake appears fantastic Retina display and improved battery life, in order to hold increased number of pixels and a powerful processor for long. However, this is only part of the story, because the question of cost, which this time is fairly balanced, unusual for Apple, but certainly commendable. Issue with this tablet is the fact that Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire HDX have a similar price. iPad mini 2 expectedly has no memory slot, and it is almost certain the 16GB version is not the best choice you can make.
