Why the Note II is the best choice for the creative mind

April 23, 2013 | by Rob W.

A creative mind does not have the luxury off turning on and off 9-5 Monday through Friday. Inspirational ideas can hit you anytime and anywhere. This is why I keep my Samsung Galaxy Note II smartphone with me wherever I go. My phone is my sketchbook, camera, laptop and planner all in one. Before my Samsung Galaxy Note II, I was sketching on paper and napkins where ever I was. I then would have to take the sketches home and scan them into my computer for safe keeping. With the Note 2, I just pull out my stylist and use my “Sketchbook Mobile” app by AUTODESK INC. to draw whatever is on my mind right then and there.

Not only is the Note II great for coming up with ideas on-the-go, it also has made my meetings easier. I no longer have to sit behind a laptop to take notes, read... read more

Casio GzOne Ravine 2 Phone for Verizon Wireless

Casio GzOne Ravine 2 for Verizon Wireless

April 19, 2013 | by Wirefly Buzz

The Casio GZOne Ravine 2 is light and fits as easily in my shirt pocket as it does in my sock.  The hard plastic case barely shows the effects of nearly 2 years of daily drops on everything from pavement to rocks to the occasional dip in a creek.  I personally prefer the large front display over other basic phones I’ve owned because I can see the time, signal strength, battery meter, and whether I have missed any calls or text messages much better than my other phones.  I keep my phone on vibrate most of the time and I’ve missed fewer calls on the Ravine 2 than any other phone I’ve owned.  Voice quality, 3.2 MP camera/camcorder, and voice recognition are... read more

Google Now App On HTC EVO 4G LTE Smartphone For Sprint

HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint is a smarter smartphone

April 18, 2013 | by Dawn Van Dyke

The HTC EVO 4G LTE Android smartphone for Sprint launched in June 2012 in the black color, followed by the white color in September 2012. Because the latest Android OS, Android 4.2.2 Jellybean, is available as an over-the-air (OTA) update from Sprint, the HTC EVO 4G LTE is running on the latest technology and has amazing features you won't find on smartphones released at the same time. My absolute favorite part about the Android 4.2.2 update is Google Now. It is almost errie how smart Google Now is... when you have an upcoming calendar event, a... read more

Samsung Brightside Smartphone - Black

Samsung Brightside - Finally something that parents and kids can agree on!

April 16, 2013 | by Megan Murray

Why Teens Like It: The Samsung Brightside is one of the smartest non-smartphones on the market and is as close to an Android as you can get without actually having to pay for one.   The device offers both style and functionality that will appeal to even the most discerning of teens who wants to own the latest and greatest phone.  It boasts a touch screen display that is typical with any smartphone design AND features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard that teens find necessary for sending texts and status updates to their friends at lightning fast speeds.   Samsung even takes it to another level by allowing for simultaneous QWERTY and touch screen input, so users can enter text on the keyboard while multi-tasking using the touch screen. It's like two devices in one!

Plus, just like a... read more
