Dell XCD35 now competes with LG Optimus One P500 (Rs 9500) , Samsung Galaxy Fit (Rs 10500) , Samsung Galaxy Pop (Rs 8300) , HTC wildfire (Rs 10400).

This new android smartphone, Micromax A85, will have all the features that are being offered by premium brands like Samsung and HTC.

HTC Explorer is for you if you are a first time android buyer or if you have a powerful classy looking 4G phone and you often loose your phones while partying hard. HTC Explorer is an entry level android smartphone which has average hardware specs but has loads of features. This is probably the first entry level phone to officially have android 2.3 (Gingerbread). This is surprising too as HTC Explorer has 600 MHz processor, many hardliners will doubt about HTC Explorer’s ability to run Gingerbread smoothly with paltry 600 MHz processor but for most cases this device do run Gingerbread pretty well.

There was a time when pagers were in vogue and Motorola was having a similar stature as Apple now has. Gone are those days, today we do not find Motorola being on top of any list. There are rumors that search giant Google is planning to buy Motorola for a whopping 12 billion dollars. With its android smartphones and tablets Motorola is trying to make its mark again in phone market. With its android smartphone Defy Motorola proved that it can still produce gold even amidst fierce android smartphone market. Motorola Defy + (plus) is successor of Motorola Defy.

When Samsung launched its 7 inch tablets many purist, including Steve Jobs, criticized the form factor of these pony tablets. After almost one year, 7 Inch Samsung Galaxy Tab is a success. Now one more time Samsung is playing its card on a new form factor for a tablet. Samsung is all ready to introduce a super decked up tablet Samsung Galaxy Note.

This new device has a 5.3 inches large display. As far as specifications are concerned, Samsung Galaxy Note can beat any boastful tablet/smartphone (read iPhone) which is available in market or is about to be launched. Lets see why this smartphone/tablet is a performance power house.
