MetroPCS has made it official that it will soon start selling the Samsung Galaxy S3 starting October 22. This monster smart phone will be available at all MetroPCS retailers and on the company’s website. The best part is that you will not be forced to sign up a contract to get it. Price of the Galaxy S III has been quite reasonable so far. MetroPCS will be selling it for 499 dollars.
The rumored Nexus 4 was leaked again this morning but this time, the leak was from evleaks twitter account, who has been pretty accurate with leaks from quite sometime. He leaked the front of the phone and confirmed its specifications. It appears that the next Nexus phone will be called LG Nexus 4 and from the front, it looks quite similar to the current Nexus phone.
The LG Optimus 2x runs Android 2.2.1, and offers up a four inch LCD display showing at 800 x 480 resolution.

Just as everyone of us is unique, so are our usage patterns. Before I continue, let me establish my usage pattern so that you can make a judgment concerning your future experience with the Xperia arc should you decide to pick one up. Since I am on an unlimited data plan, I leave my 3G connection on round the clock, having the phone synchronized to both my Face book accounts. Entertainment-wise, I listen to around 20 minutes of songs each day on average, deal with around 10 text messages and double that amount for emails in terms of reading and replying. Photo taking is minimal, limited to around 5 or so shots each day – mainly during meals. Apart from that, I do make conversation for around 20 minutes each day. This review will be based on my usage pattern, so depending on how you push your phone, mileage may vary.
The Cell Drive is a USB stick drive that offers up four gig of storage. But not only that–it also charges with that same USB connection to provide a portable power source for a variety of devices. It even includes a whole set of connector prongs allowing you to plug that variety of devices into it. And, just to top it all off, it will even allow you to sync your mobile device with your laptop.
The Ballistic Tough Jacket for the Blackberry PlayBook is a lot like most other Ballistic cases, especially those we’ve reviewed here previously. It offers up multi-layer protection, including an inner, flexible layer that surrounds your tablet and a much more rigid outer layer. Both layers include slots for your various ports to still be accessible, like your camera and volume controls, and the inner layer clips into the outer layer. Plus, the outer layer also includes a kickstand so you can use the tablet on a flat surface, like an easel.
