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. Another interesting bit regarding this device is the fact that it carries a single core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. Considering that there isn’t a whole lot of support for dual core apps at the moment, his seems like a smart move by HTC, although many will likely be put off by this.

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.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
