Two years ago, Nokia wasn’t making much noise in the US mobile industry. Their first US Windows Phone devices – Lumia 900 and 920 – were less than stellar in sales and performance. The title for camera phone king rested tightly on the head of Apple’s iPhone and arguably still does. Fortunately for Nokia, they’re getting their groove back with the Lumia 925. It’s what Nokia’s first Windows Phone should’ve been: thin and light with a banging camera! Better late than never, right?
The holiday season is in full effect and lots of people are expecting to receive the gadget of their dreams this year. This might be the sophisticated iPhone 5 or the stylish Galaxy S3.

“Why get an iPad mini when you can have this?” Daniela Capistrano asked me after only 24 hours of playing with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. After only a few days with the Note 2, it’s easy to see the logic in her question. The iPad mini just doesn’t match the creation capabilities of the Galaxy Note 2.

This week Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 10.1, a tablet spinoff of their popular 5.3-inch Galaxy Note smartphone with an emphasis on content creation as well as consumption.

Can you have your content and create it too? Time will tell as the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 attempts to raise the bar for tablets to come.
