Samsung Galaxy Note And HTC Sensation XL Forums Added
Well, it seems that it is the time to go back to big devices, and the bigget they are, the more appealing they seem. You have likely seen he flurry of announcements regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note and the HTC Sensation XL. The first of these two is said to bridge the gap between tabs and phones due to it having a larger screen but not making it big enough to qualify as a tab. It does carry some impressive specs on it though.
On the other hand, we get the Sensation XL by HTC. This is yet another behemoth of a device with a screen that is considerably larger than that of its closest relative, the HTC Sensation.

Both of these devices are scheduled to release a few weeks from now. However, if you have either one of these and would like to leave a review, or drop something interesting that you found in them, please do it in their brand new fora.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
