HTC Flyer Specs Leaked!

I, for one, have been waiting far too long for this. We've gotten word from the guys over at Amobil, who have the leaked specs for HTC's Android tablet, aka the Flyer. Before I get into the specs, the picture above is a mockup, and might not even be an HTC tablet. Now then, the Flyer will be packing:
  • A 7-inch, 1024x600 resolution screen, which is the same as the Galaxy Tab
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor, found in the Desire HD
  • HDMI port
  • DLNA-enabled for wireless movie/music streaming
  • 5MP rear camera with LED flash and facial recognition
  • 1.3MP front-facing camera for video chatting, with Skype preinstalled
  • At the time they received the specs, the Flyer was running Gingerbread, but Honeycomb was released shortly after, so we can't confirm which version it'll be running out-of-the-box
  • A remodeled version of Sense that has a "desktop" feel to it
  • HSPA connectivity (T-Mobile, anyone?)
  • There's also apparently a 10-inch tablet in the works, to compete with the iPad.
  • The iPad competitor will feature LTE (Verizon customers, you can get excited now) and will be in stores sometime in the second half of the year
All I can say is... wow. I know HTC is good at blowing us away, but this tablet sounds incredible. As if it wasn't enough that it's HTC-made. Now they throw all this at us. I'm definitely keeping my eyes on this device. Anyone else impressed? Again, a big thanks to the guys over at Amobil for the info!

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
