Forums Added for the RAZR M, Galaxy Note 2, Kindle Fire HD7, and Kindle Fire 2

What a week it’s been for technology. First, we took a peak at Motorola’s announcement, in which details were presented about Windows Phone 8 and some upcoming devices. Among them was the Droid RAZR M, which is the successor to the original Droid RAZR. While it features mid-range specs by today’s standards, it’s certainly no slouch. It features a 4.3″ screen packing in 960 x 540 pixels, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, a gig of RAM, a 2000 mAh battery, and most importantly, it comes preloaded with Ice Cream Sandwich.

Motorola’s event wasn’t the only source of excitement, as Amazon introduced two new models to the Kindle Fire line. In addition to the much anticipated Kindle Fire HD 8.9″, which will ship in late November, they also saw fit to update their 7″ model. The Kindle Fire HD 7, which will ship later this week, features a 1280 x 800 7″ IPS panel, 1 GB of RAM, a 1.2 GHz dual-core OMAP 4460 processor, and a heavily modified version of Ice Cream Sandwich. They also gave a minor facelift to the standard Kindle Fire. Although the exact differences are unclear, Amazon states that the Kindle Fire 2 features twice the RAM, a beefier battery, and “40% faster performance.”

The successor to Samsung’s best-selling “phablet” was also given a home in our forums. The Galaxy Note 2, which should appear on store shelves next month, will feature a 1.6 GHz quad-core (most likely Exynos 4412) processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 5.5″ 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED HD display, and a 3100 mAh battery. Most impressively, it will run Jelly Bean out of the box.

OnePlus Two: Expectations and Boundaries

OnePlus is a company that has been through controversies and praise in what was perhaps one of the most dynamic years for a company - and all of this with a single phone. The OnePlus One was, indeed, flagship killer that didn’t settle in many ways. The device went on to sell over a million units - an impressive number considering the invite system meant limited sales and that its advertising was mostly word-of-mouth.   OnePlus made it clear that their...
