AT&T’s best phones: The iPhone 4 and Samsung Galaxy S II

Samsung Galaxy S II and the iPhone 4

Somewhere, a Windows Phone is weeping. But right now we’re going to take a look at the top Android smartphone and the top … other … smartphone on AT&T — the Samsung Galaxy S II and the iPhone 4. Yeah, WP7 has pretty much secured the No. 3 spot, but, frankly, we feel it needs another cycle or two to really work out the kinks.

A lucky reader gets a Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 early from Best Buy

Tab 8.9

We just got this from a reader who wishes to remain anonymous — it’s his very own Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 courtesy of Best Buy (see our hands-on here).  It seems that his Tab 10.1 had a manufacturing defect, and when he went to Best Buy to return it they inadvertantly grabbed an 8.9-incher from the stockroom and handed it over.  We know Best Buy is already taking pre-orders for the slightly  [Read More…]

Android Central Forums member remii picked up his shiny new Samsung Galaxy S II Sprint Epic 4G Touch (hereafter referred to as the SGSIIE4GT for short) at a Best Buy in Riverside, Calif., only to find that it wasn’t quite as pristine as you might expect, with the box apparently already opened and the phone’s camera having been … tested.

The HTC Flyer may not be running Honeycomb or have a dual-core processor, but it’s certainly one of the most unique Android tablets currently on the market.  The only real flaw we found with the HTC Flyer was its price. In the US the WiFi HTC Flyer is priced at $ 499. Prices in Europe were even more ridiculous. But if the price was the only thing keeping you away, we  [Read More…]

HTC Flyer falls to £329.99 at Best Buy UK

 Android Central

We came away with a positive impression of HTC’s 7-inch Flyer tablet when it launched back in late May, however, one thing we weren’t fans of was the Flyer’s UK pricing. At £480 for Wifi-only and £600 for Wifi and 3G, it was significantly more expensive than the dual-core, Honeycomb-powered competition, and that made us sad. Fortunately, Best Buy UK has now gone some way towards remedying that, with today’s price reduction  [Read More…]
