If you want to make time pass more slowly, just buy the wrong mobile deviceespecially one that comes tethered to a contract. Each day of those 24 months will feel like eternity.

A purchasing misstep like that will sowtrouble and hassle throughout your entire mobile ecosystem. You won’t be able to buy the apps you really want, you’ll be barred from using the services you really need, and you’ll feel like a complete doofus when you pull out that white elephant in a crowd and someone asks, with a raised eyebrow, “How’s that workin’ out for ya?”

We’re here to help you avoid the stigma and potential chaos that can come with choosing the wrong mobile product. We’ve evaluated nearly every device and service on the market and have selected the cream of the crop for your consideration. If a mobile product isn’t on this list, you probably don’t want it. Trust us.

If you’re wondering why the Nokia Lumia 920 didn’t make our list, it’s because at least one editor was required to have had in-depth experience with a product before recommending it. We didn’t require a full review, but hands-on time at a press briefing didn’t qualify. No one here had enough time with the Nokia Lumia 920 to meet that requirement before our print deadline.

Samsung locks up Sharp as long-time screen provider

Japan’s Sharp has secured a $110 million lifeline investment from Samsung Electronics, and agreed to become a major supplier of screens for the South Korean company’s growing electronics empire.

The deal gives Samsung a steady supply of screens and deals a possible blow to chief rival Apple, which has long been a major customer of Sharp. Sharp gains a massive customer in Samsung, the world’s largest maker of mobile phones and smartphones.

The agreement will give Samsung a 3 percent share in the struggling Japanese display maker when the investment is completed at the end of this month. Sharp is in the midst of a restructuring as it heads for a nearly $5 billion loss this fiscal year, but is still one of the world’s largest LCD panel makers and possesses many cutting edge technologies.

Analysts and industry observers praised the deal.

Brand New 3rd Party Pro controller Review

Recently there’s a third party Wii U controller designed by a reuptated gaming accessory manufacturer that is functioning just like a Wii U Pro controller but is fashioned in a Xbox controller style. It’s light, and feels nice in the hands. The overall size of the controller is somewhere between the PS3 and Xbox 360 controllers. It’s an improvement over the Wii U Pro in that there’s quite a bit less thumb travel needed to get from the right stick to the B button, but obviously the Wii U Pro controller is a much much classier product overall. Small elegant factors like the printing on the buttons by double plastic injection make it very clear that this is a high-grade third-party controller, but the it’s priced very reasonably. It’s not difficult to notice the details of this 3rd party Pro Controller is designed for hardcore gamer with accessibility and extended gameplay comfort especially the ergonomic button layout.

It is powered by:
A. Built-in Rechargeable Lithium Battery varies from 650mAh to 1500mAh, or
B. USB connection at the controller for unlimited play time.

The gimmick of this controller is that it’s fashioned to look like a Microsoft Xbox controller sitting with the twin sticks and extra buttons of the Wii U Pro controller. You may notice interestingly the X and Y buttons are concave across all models of the Controller Pro U like they were in North America, even though all four face buttons were originally rounded in other regions.

The black or white finish is matte and textured like the Wii U Pro controller with fashioned curve lines distinction of glossy finishing at the bottom part, truth be told it feels much stylish and high valued. The D-pad is a four-way rocker and feels surprisingly similar to the original that Sony and Microsoft have been very careful to avoid.

The face buttons are not quite clicky and are very nice and the sticks are sturdy enough, though the shoulder buttons and triggers feel very good, probably owing to the expensive tact switches used in those buttons.

For simple menu navigation the controller works surprisingly well. The controller of course also has a full compatibility and a rechargeable Li battery (recharged by USB).
