Jacobs Portal 9.7″ Tablet — Review

Jacobs Portal 9.7″ Tablet — Review

A sub $200 10 inch Android tablet usually spells danger, but does the Jacobs Portal 9.7” device deserve the stigma? As I stated in my recent review of the Leader Tab, there’s two distinctly different segments when it comes to 10-inch tablets. There’s the performance devices, which includes the Nexus 10 and the Sony Xperia Tablet Z; and the “budget[Read More…]

Accessory Review: Pebble smartwatch

Accessory Review: Pebble smartwatch

This may not be a traditional accessory review but I thought that would be the best way to tackle this device on Ausdroid. It is not an Android device but it complements your existing Android phone, and that fits my definition of an Android accessory review. For those of you that don’t follow all of the tech news, Pebble is[Read More…]

As tablet sizes trend downwards with the[Read More…]

Accessory Review: Mongrel Glass – Galaxy S4 Screen Protector

Screen protectors are becoming an important addition to the modern smartphone. As screens get bigger, the price of repairing a smashed screen goes up. In many cases, the price of a new screen seems at odds with the overall price you’ve paid for the device, but you’ll grin and bear it because it’s still cheaper than getting a new phone.[Read More…]

Accessory Review: Aranez case for Samsung Galaxy SIII

Accessory Review: Aranez case for Samsung Galaxy SIII

There’s no shortage of cheap cases for any of the big release phones each year, but there is distinctly short supply of quality cases for phones particularly if you’re after something with style and a hint of class about it.

One company who certainly know about Wireless[Read More…]

Accessory Review: Official Nexus 10 cover

Accessory Review: Official Nexus 10 cover

From the moment I bought my Nexus 10 I have loved the way it felt in my hands. The weight of it, the textures, but most importantly is how thin the device is. Using this device everyday though and carrying it in my bag with other items was a bit of a worry and I had to find a way[Read More…]
