Huawei MediaPad Review

The Huawei MediaPad skimps on almost no ingredient in a bid to challenge the best 7" tablets out there. Sure, it would have been great to have Android ICS out of the box, but the screen has WXGA resolution and 216ppi pixel density - almost as high as the 10.1" Asus Transformer Prime TF700T and its 224ppi 1920x1200 screen.
Not impressed yet? How about an aluminum unibody that's thinner and lighter than the plasticy Kindle Fire? What about some of these specs:

Sony Xperia P Hands-on

The Sony Xperia P, which was once known only by its Nypon code name, was one of the smartphones that we were expecting to see at CES 2012. Of course, that didn't happen. Today, however, we are finally given the opportunity to go up close and personal with this mid- to high-range offering by Sony.

The design is in line with the rest of the new Xperia gang – the P is made predominantly of plastic, and features the characteristic transparent line near the capacitive navigation keys. Overall, the Xperia P is one good-looking device, although it won't win an award for exceptional thinness due to its 10.5 mm.

It goes without saying that the 4-inch qHD display on the Sony Xperia P is one of its standout features. Enhanced with WhiteMagic technology, it delivers an impressive brightness of 1000 nits, meaning that it should remain clearly visible even in broad daylight. Since we tested the device indoors, we can't vouch for the brightness of the display, but we'll be sure to check this out once we get a unit for a review.

Providing the Sony Xperia P with processing power is a 1GHz dual-core processor, courtesy of ST-Ericsson. During our brief time with the handset, we didn't encounter much lag while playing with the interface. However, we should mention that these weren't final units we got to play with, plus the handset will be updated to Android 4 ICS (it will launch with Gingerbread). The update is scheduled for this Spring.
Other noteworthy features include an 8 megapixel camera, a VGA FF one, as well as the usual suspects like Wi-Fi, DLNA, and GPS.

HTC One V Hands-on Review

And lastly, the HTC One V is the entry level addition to the HTC line-up at MWC.

As such, it's packs a 1GHz single-core yet unspecified CPU Snapdragon S2 processor, 512MB of RAM and a 3.7-inch WVGA LCD display. The One V runs Ice Cream Sandwich, but unlike it's fellow relatives from the One family, which run Sense 4.0, the One V is coated with the older Sense 3.6.
At the back there's a 5MP camera with autofocus and f/2.0 lens recording 720p videos. Unfortunately, HTC has omitted the front-facing camera on the One V. Storage is limited to just 4GB sans microSD card slot, but a deal with HTC and Dropbox comes to the rescue. It gives users 25GB of free Dropbox online storage for 2 years.
A 1500mAh battery will give the phone its power juices while a quadband GSM and WCDMA radios will take care of the telephony. The One V also packs GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

HTC One S Hands-on Review

The One S is the slimmer brother of the One X and as it happens is the thinnest phone HTC has ever produced.

Slimmer, but also less powerful, it's powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor on the MSM8260A platform thus making it more of a mid-range model, rather than a truly fledged flagship.
Still, the One S is packing a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display and an 8MP shooter at the back with an f/2.0 lens and a LED flash. The audio of the One S is enhanced by Beats Audio as well.
The One S is built around HTC's usual aluminum unibody design and is just 7.6mm thick. HTC has gone the extra mile by giving the One S a crystaline ceramic metal finish, which is achieved by baking the aluminum in plasma. This whole process transforms the aluminum into ceramic making it 4 times harder and scratch resistant.

HTC One X Hands-on Review

You should already be quite familiar with the One X with its many leaks prior to MWC, but now let's run over the official specifications of the Taiwanese flagship.

The One X is the most powerful Android smartphone HTC have built to date and it's built around a 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 display sporting a 720p (1280x720 pixels) resolution. A 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 chip for the global edition of the phone and a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core for the LTE variant coupled with 1GB of RAM will be making sure Android 4.0 Ice Scream Sandwich is running at its best with no apps making it think twice.
At the back, the One X sports an 8MP snapper, which packs a special Dual Shutter camera module, which allows you to take photos while shooting 1080p video at the same time. We are quite impressed. And the main camera itself rocks a 22mm wide angle lens, f/2.0 aperture and a BSI sensor. Face and smile detection are on board as well as burst shooting mode up to 5fps.
Storage on the One X is limited to 32GB with no microSD card on board, but HTC compensates its lack with 25GB of free Dropbox storage for two years. NFC, DLNA, Bluetooth 3, Wi-Fi N, 3.5mm headphone jack and microUSB with MHL are on board, too. Oh, and it's also got Beats Audio enhancement, so music through that 3.5mm jack should sound extra nice.
The display of the One X is covered in 3D Gorilla Glass, which is another way of saying the screen glass is tapered on the edges as on the Nokia N9 and Lumia 800. The whole body of the phone is one piece of polycarbonate plastic, just like the N9. It's quite slim, too, measuring only 9,29mm. Impressive for a 720p screen, Tegra 3-packing (or Snapdragon S4-packing) Droid.

Blogs normally allow you to add your website's URL in the comment section. If related to your comment post, you can also link back to your website or any part of it in the comment section.

Forum posting

You can post a new forum thread or reply to existing ones in topics related to any part of your website, linking to it as source or reference.


In some forum and mailing list, you are allowed to create signatures that you can use to create a link back to your website.

Social media

Social media like Twitter, Facebook and Stumbleupon is a great way to post about anything that you have on your website. If your post gets shared by others and goes viral, you'll see a spike in your website's visitor count.

Social bookmarks

Social bookmarking sites allow others to view your bookmarks. Adding your own website and articles to social bookmarking sites would give you some extra backlinks.

They also allow a link back to your website as writer's profile or as source links. As these websites normally has high search engine ranking and high user base, having a backlink from these sites could give you a traffic boost.

Link exchange

If you have some extra budget, you can advertise on other websites that provide advertising space. You can also opt for PPC (pay per click) advertising such as Google AdWords.

Web directories

Web directories are websites that allow you to submit your website to be included in their directory of websites. While most are free, some require you to pay for the service. The popular web directories such as dmoz and Yahoo! Directory are hard to get approved, but it's worth trying as it could give you a boost in search engine ranking, if not just referral traffic.
