Keeping your tablet safe is paramount for a lot of people, especially when you consider the prices of higher-end Android tablets. Read on to hear our thoughts on an accessory that offers great protection, but in a different and unique way.. iBallz.
iBallz consists of four balls, with slots in, which tightly fit over each corner of your tablet. After prolonged use on the same tablet, the grip that each ball has on the corner of the tablet becomes more solid, giving you peace of mind when using them.
The balls can be tightened to fit the tablet better if need be, especially useful for smaller tablets. This is done by a small pull-cord attached to the iBallz, which is long enough to be useful, but not too long that it becomes an annoyance. In terms of protection, iBallz acts as a great shock absorber if you happen to drop the tablet, and the fact the balls take the tablet off the surface is helpful if you spill something near the device. We tried our set of iBallz on several tablets, ranging in thickness and size, and had no problems with attaching iBallz to any of them.
As well as offering a great level of protection for your tablet, iBallz can also be altered to make a useful stand for your tablet. Simply removing one of the balls from its corner and placing it behind the tablet offers a surprisingly sturdy stand.

Unleash your Android phone to its maximum potential through phone hacking. Read on to get the necessary information on how to double the speed on your phone.
Mobile technology is developing so fast that even if you’ve bought the latest and best Android phone on the market, you can be sure it’ll start to look old a few months down the line. If you’re looking to upgrade your phone, then perhaps first consider the world of phone hacking, and getting the most out of your Android phone. With a few phone hacks you can not only bring your phone up-to date, but also get extra power from your phone.
Changing the ROM will not perform miracles. It won’t suddenly give your phone a faster processor, or even give your phone more memory, but as anyone who has ever used a brand new device and found it to be occasionally laggy when scrolling through their home screens will know, how well optimised the software is proves hugely important to how fast your phone is, or at least how fast it feels.
When a manufacturer is putting together a ROM for an Android phone, it has countless considerations affecting what the final product will look like. Yes, they want it to be fast, but they also need it to be as stable as possible, and it also must fulfil the advertised promises of the device – certain apps will be installed, for instance, and some may be set to run continually in the background. When a custom ROM make enters the world of phone hacking, for the most part they can ignore those considerations. A ROM will, of course, have to be stable if it is intended to be used for everyday purposes, but sometimes developers will look to squeeze a little more power at the cost of some niceties. They might produce bloatware free ROMs that also often find their way on to your Android phone.
Details have emerged over the design and specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S3 device, the follow-up device to the Samsung Galaxy S2.
Although there is speculation over the validity over the screenshot, if they do in fact turn out to be true, then we are on course to see another fantastic handset from Samsung. The screenshot, supposedly designed for an internal presentation, seems to show plans and specification lists for a couple of other Samsung devices, ending with the design and specification list of the Samsung Galaxy S3.
According to the image, the Samsung Galaxy S3 will feature 1.8GHz Exynos 4212 processor, 2GB of RAM, a mammoth 12-megapixel camera, and a 4.6″ Super AMOLED Plus HD display screen.
Unlike the upcoming Samsung Nexus Prime, the Samsung Galaxy S3 will not feature a curved display, but it will be thinner than the earlier S2 device. It has also been noted that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will retain four physical buttons on the handset, but will be running the latest Android OS; Ice Cream Sandwich.
Does Kaiten Mail suffer from the problems we usually see with other mail clients? Read on to find out.
Mail clients are pretty thin on the ground for Android devices. It’s strange when you think about it, because almost every other corner of the Android Market is rammed with choice, well enter Kaiten Mail. A neat new client with a few tricks up its sleeve, albeit one that still manages to suffer the same problems that blight the Gmail app. The app it a decent-looking piece of kit, and intuitive to use right from the off. You log into your email account and Kaiten Mail does the rest, downloading your settings direct from your email provider.
A slider bar at the top of the screen allows you to split your view, displaying an email in the bottom pane and your inbox in another. Kaiten Mail certainly has the edge over most other email clients in the looks department. It’s a neat little package that’s wonderfully easy on the eye, and you’ll find almost everything you want within a few taps of your fingers. Long-pressing on an email opens up a whole raft of options, from replying to finding more mail from that sender.
One thing the app doesn’t let you do is create new folders for your email account. You’re able to move things around in the folders you’ve already created, but if you receive a new email that you want to start a new folder for, you’re going to have to do it online rather than in-app. You can pinch and double-tap to zoom in an email, but Kaiten Mail quite often gets confused over what you’re trying to do and you end up staring at a blank screen instead of the text you were trying to enlarge.
