Processor 1.5Ghz Dual-core (Qualcomm)
Ram 1GB
Battery  1650 MaH (Non-removable)

The One S is a solid phone designed for HTC's mid-range. Even though this thing completely blows my Galaxy S2 out of the water and the SGS2 was last years flagship!
But the real gem in the bunch is the last and best of the three.

OS Android 4.0 with Sense 4
Camera 1.3mp (front) + 8mp (f2 lens) (rear)
Screen  1280x720 (720p HD) 4.7" sLCD display
Processor 1.5Ghz Quad-core (Nvidia Tegra 3)
Ram 1GB
Battery  1800 MaH 
Storage 32gb (plus 25gb via Dropbox)(No SD card)

The One X is the star in the bunch; not only does it have to insane specs seen above, it has Bluetooth 4.0, Beats Audio, NFC and there's probably tonnes more I've missed!
   HTC really has followed through on it's promise to focus on the specs of its phones this year. My only slight concern is the size of that battery with a 4.7" screen and a quad-core processor it could drain rather quickly.


Asus Padfone


OSAndroid 4.0 
CameraVGA (front) + 8mp (f2.2 lens) (rear)
Screen 960x540 (qHD) 4.3" SuperAmoled display
Processor1.5Ghz Qual-core (Qualcomm S4)
Battery 1520 MaH 

I'm really pleased Asus have announced this device, it's good to see someone pushing the boundaries of what can be done with mobile technology and I'm even more pleased Asus are making what I see as the future of phone a reality.

Asus Transformer Pad 300
   Yep that image up their looks just like a Transformer Prime to me and it pretty much is! Asus have taken the Prime kept the processor, decreased the storage, switched to a normal IPS display (instead of IPS+) and boom you have the Transformer Pad 300. 
   As you can see yo can still get the keyboard dock and you can still get 10 hours of battery life (16 with dock) and if Asus can sell this for a good price they will undoubtedly have another hit on their hands.

   A small aside, Asus' tablet range is now going to be called the Transformer Pad range, I have no idea why but obvious Asus feels that is a good move, it probably helps to tie the brand together in the same way Samsung does with their Galaxy range.

Nokia have really gone all out here to make the BEST cameraphone in the world hands down, no discussion, period, end of. It'll retail for 495Euros or about £450 if this is your cup of tea, but remember that 41MP camera makes a hell of a bump on the back.

With a barrage of ZTE phones and tablets; here are their press releases. (Courtesy of, thanks!)
