Veho Pebble Smartstick Emergency Charger Review


Yep, new review by me on TestFreaks…

"Don’t you hate it when the battery on your mobile device dies during the course of the day and you realized you either forgot your charger or don’t have anywhere to charge it? Today for review I’ve got the Veho Pebble Smartstick Emergency Charger which is just like it sounds, a portable battery essentially to charge your devices in an emergency. That’s not exactly true I think as it doesn’t really have to be an emergency to use it, you can use it anytime you need to top off the battery in your device. The Pebble is very small and portable and comes with a few different tips allowing you to charge most devices on the market today. The Pebble is something that personally I need as my kids love using my iPod Touch 4th Gen but it’s aging and the battery only lasts for a little over an hour, and that isn’t much really. The Pebble allows my kids to keep using the iPod for more than what the battery normally allows. So read one to learn more.."

I Want the Samsung Galaxy S4


Wow, I want one of these so bad… my contract with AT&T expired way back in November and I was trying to wait for a deal on a new phone, the phone I wanted was the Nokia Lumia 920 but it was never in stock when I had the extra cash, or when it was in stock or on sale I didn’t have the money for it. Can’t win y’know, it’s just how it is. I’ve had two Windows Phones now and I like them, but I’ve decided to go back to Android. I used to have the original Samsung Galaxy S, the Captivate and I loved it, but I wanted to try something new so I got the HTC Surround and the HTC Titan, both of which are Windows Phones. After all this time I still just can’t get the same things and do the same things on Windows Phone that I can on Android, and I’m tired of waiting for more companies to support the platform. It’s sad as WinPho is decent, but it seems there just isn’t support from major companies with apps and stuff for it really. I get tons of press releases everyday and I rarely get any concerning Windows Phone. Sure I get tons for iOS and Android, but not much for WinPho sadly.

I’m glad I waited though as the new Samsung Galaxy S4 is just amazing, it’s the most powerful phone out there today and I’m sure it will remain at the top for sometime to come. The new Apple iPhone is due to come out shortly but unless Apple comes up with something amazing it won’t beat the S4. Apple is known for just little updates to their phones and it’s usually years between major updates so since the last one was a major update you can bet the next one won’t be.

So I want one now, too bad there’s no official announcement as to when it will be available on A&T, just sign up to be notified. I wonder what the chances are of getting one early for review and keeping it are? I want this phone!

After the break I’ve included the official Samsung press release on the S4 if you’re interested…
