1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    On Sunday at MWC, Huawei launched their three newest Android phones: The Ascend D Quad, Ascend D Quad XL and Ascend D1. The first two are running Huwaei's own custom quad-core chip, called the K3V2, which they claim is faster yet more energy efficient than the competition from NVIDIA and others. They claim it is the "world's fastest quad-core smartphone." Here's a breakdown of specs from their new flagship devices:
    Huwaei Ascend D Quad & Huawei Ascend D Quad XL -
    • K3V2 quad-core 1.5GHz processor
    • 4.5-inch 720P high definition touchscreen
    • 8-megapixel rear-camera - 1080p full HD video
    • 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
    • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
    • 1800mAh battery
    • (The Ascend D quad XL has the same specs as the Ascend D Quad above except it comes with a hefty 2,500 mAh battery.)
    The Huawaei Ascend D1 is their mid-range/budget device, and although they didn't share much about it, we do know it comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a 1650mAh battery. Here are some launch details followed by the press release, "The Ascend D quad series will be available in China, Australia, Europe, Asia-Pacific, North and South America, and the Middle East in the second quarter of 2012, with the Ascend D1 to be made available in April."
