Stories you shouldn't have missed this week

Stories you shouldn't have missed this week
What a week this was, eh? Lots of interesting stuff going on, including the announcement of some of the hottest phones this year, along with the long-awaited Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android. In case you have been unfortunate enough to miss any of those stories, or would simply enjoy a quick refresher, this is the place to be! Let's quickly follow through the most interesting stuff that happened this week in the world of wireless...

Stories you shouldn't have missed this week
First things first, it's like the week started on Tuesday, with the introduction of the beautiful Motorola DROID RAZR for Verizon Wireless. What can we say – this phone is surely one of the best looking and most promising Android devices ever. Of course, we covered the event down to every last detail, and provided you with our very own hands-on with the DROID RAZR. It's also worth noting that along with the new killer handset, Moto also announced a new accessory for athletes - the MOTOACTV.

But as if this wasn't enough, later on in the day, Google and Samsung introduced the Ice Cream Sandwich poster child, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, as well as ICS itself. And you didn't think that we left it uncovered, right? Here's are all the links that might be of interest to you regarding this one:


But this week wasn't all about the new RAZR, Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich. On Thursday it was ARM which introduced its new Cortex-A7 architecture. Now, this is actually pretty important, since all current-gen SoCs are using ARM's technology. The news is good for all of us, especially those who love getting as much battery life as possible from their handsets, since the Cortex-A7 architecture is designed with affordability and power-consumption.

Finally, there was also a little something for the ones interested in the iPhone vs Android quarrel. Days before the release of one of the biographies on the life of Steve Jobs, its author, Walter Isaacson has shared a few bits, describing Jobs's not really positive attitude towards Android, considering it a stolen product. Enjoy reading our post about it!

Hmmmm, now this could be construed as anti-apple.....or, pro-android....or maybe that is just the way the cookie crumbles.

I wonder, you guys plan doing this every week or only when important weeks occur? It's a good addition to the site in my opinion

Daily seemed like a bit too much ,(for me) information is still Fresh I can see a list of top feature articles of the week or every 15 days or maybe even once a month. Maybe I missed so much on a really busy Week. But I like where the site is going .

And how are you? Don't see you much do I ?
