Believe it or not, I survived one month of working just using my iPhone. I blog here from my smartphone using a Wordpress App. It’s not ideal but I have no choice because my MacBook Air is being repaired.

Of course, it’s not always the case for everyone but I’m sure you geeks can relate.

With the Mobile World Congress happening in Barcelona fast approaching, LG decided to get ahead of other smartphone manufacturers by officially announcing its latest offering, the LG G Pro 2. Of course, this smartphone has been the subject of rumors and leaks the past couple of weeks and so most of the specs and features that we’re going to tell you are nothing new anymore.
BlackBerry is still in the smartphone business, darling. Rumor has it that a phone named “Ontario” will be released soon after being spotted at benchmark site Geekbench. It’s said to be a high-end smartphone that runs 2.15GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 MSM8974.
