Sony Xperia Go, unbreakable waterproof Android phone

Posted by – September 4, 2012

I smash this phone on the table and it's fine. Sony says they have competitions with people throwing it as far as they can and it still works fine, it doesn't even get scratched. Have fun with that. It can stay under water for 30 minutes at 1m depth, so it's not just splash proof, it's waterproof.

Windows 8 RT on the Qualcomm S4 Snadragon development platform

Posted by – June 5, 2012

This demo of Windows 8 RT on Qualcomm S4 seems to be very smooth. There are a few bugs here or there, but overall, it looks quite smooth to me. I think Windows 8 on ARM is going to be more popular than Windows 8 on x86, yet I think that Android will remain far more popular than all forms of Windows.
