Lenovo Shows Off IdeaTab A2107 And A2109, But Gives No Details

Lenovo decided to show off two new unreleased tablets. The first is the A2107, a 7″ tablet running ICS. The second is the 9″ A2109. This is the first time I’ve seen a 9″ tablet, but it sounds like a good size. It is said to be “full size fun on a small budget” so we can assume both tablets might be budget ones. This would be a good move, since that’s… Read more

Possible Budget RAZR Inbound To Verizon

We have some new images of what looks like a new Verizon Motorola RAZR variant hopefully coming out soon. Its model number is XT907, and compared to the RAZR (XT912) and RAZR HD (XT926), it seems to be a lower end model. Unfortunately, we have no further details, only speculation. It looks to be a smaller device, possibly 4″ or 4.3″ at a probable qHD… Read more

Huawei Ascend Y200 Budget Phone US Launch Soon

Huawei is sticking with its guns and continuing to make budget phones. Though the Ascend P1 S truly impressed me (for a Huawei phone anyway), they aren’t giving up the budget market. The Y200 was displayed at CTIA, and now we find out that it will be launching in the US in a few months. This would be a good phone for kids as a first phone. The Y200… Read more
