    We recently had the opportunity to review the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, an experience we enjoyed primarily because of the device's innovative hardware: a 6.9mm-thick, 495g chassis that manages to squeeze water- and dust-resistance onto its list of features. Pocketnow is currently in the midst of reviewing the BlackBerry Q10, a peculiar blend of yesterday's design cues with a modern OS - and we're enjoying the feeling of real physical keys under our thumbs again. The third-generation Apple iPad and Microsoft's Surface RT also share space in our office, and we love the sturdy (if heavy) hardware ...

    I love my Nexus 7. It's one of the best tablets on the market for the money. Recently, Google updated it to Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean and brought with it irritating lag! That lag presents itself at the worst times. Another issue I wanted to address was battery life. Although the battery on the Nexus 7 isn't small, in my use I needed another hour or two of use. Investigating solutions that would address both lag and battery life, some of our readers recommended Franco Kernel, a replacement kernel, kernel updater, and settings control panel all-in-one. It won't work with every device, but if ...

    This message might self-destruct in the next couple of minutes. You seriously just never know when it comes to Google's ability to meet demand when it comes to their new Nexus line-up. The Nexus 4 is hit-or-miss when it comes to trying to buy one on Google's Play Store, and the same story proved true with the Nexus 10 for a while. As it turns out the Nexus 10 is now available again on the Google Play Store. Now since the last time that Google did the same thing with the Nexus 4, the fun lasted for around eight minutes (and I'm not forgetting digits there), we hope this story doesn't repeat ...

    Over the past several days we've shown you CyanogenMod 10.1 running on the Nexus 4, Nexus 10, and even the Samsung Galaxy S III. These were official "nightly" builds, straight from the CyanogenMod team. Nightlies, as you likely know, are works in progress. They have known bugs in them. They are not feature complete. They haven't been tweaked and polished. They are, however, sometimes stable enough for use as a daily driver -- at least if you're one of the more adventurous among us. What about older devices? Where's the love for them? Even Google has cut off Jelly Bean support for their ...

    Android 4.2 sure seems to be developing a reputation as one of the more glitch-filled Android release in recent memory, with issues like the embarrassing missing-December bug already prompting the release of a 4.2.1 update. The latest to be brought to our attention seems to have something to do with the new multi-user support, and it's making graphics render with some unintended transparencies. From what users have been able to work out, the issue only pops-up when you're using an app through the tablet's non-primary account. In certain circumstances, it will fail to render a screen with ...

    Do you remember the Android 4.2 December bug? Google promised a quick fix and it is apparently rolling out in the form of an Android 4.2.1 update for the LG-made Nexus 4, Asus-made Nexus 7 and Samsung-made Nexus 10. Of course, there's more to the update than just the December bug fix, even though the file is kind of lightweight. Bluetooth glitch fixes are also in and that's just about it when it comes to the little-more-than-one-megabyte update. There are four days left until December so those with a birthday next month can, after the update, go ahead (or their friends) and finally enter ...
