Samsung Galaxy S5 : NFC Review No sooner had the Galaxy S4 launched it seemed that Samsung had already consigned it to the archive lot and announced the arrival of the S5 almost immediately. Where the S4 was perhaps a tread-water effort to remain competitive, the S5, genuinely, seem to be something that has propelled the galaxy range back into the lead in the smartphone wars. Whereas the S4 just was't much more than the S3, the S5 somehow feels remarkably more modern and device you would expect a flagship to be. Although it's a little ironic. The S5 doesn;t have the premium feel of the S4...

LG Google Nexus 4 : NFC Review It's a bit of a strange world this handset world. Here you have Google. When they first brought out a device that would carry it's name, they went to Samsung and released the Google Nexus S phone. That was all well and good and I think the device did OK in the market. It even had a go with some other models from partners including HTC and ASUS. Google then acquired Motorla handsets, and the natural assumption would be that Motorola would then build any Google monikered devices. But no. Google rinsed Motorola of all the Intellectual Property and then off-loaded...

Samsung Galaxy S4 : NFC Review The Samsung Galaxy S4 came and was surpassed in the blink of an eye. It's was undeniably the stop gap that Samsung felt compelled to release to bide the time between the hugely successful (but facing increasing competition) Galaxy S3 and the new superstar of the lineup, the Galaxy S5. To an extent then it's no surprise that the S4 feels like an incremental step from the S3 rather than a monumental shift. But that doesn't mean it isn't without it's positive elements. The screen, for starters, is lovely. Bright, sharp and responsive to the touch. The processor is clearly up...

Wooshping introduces the TripAdvisor Instant Review Campaign TripAdvisor is probably the best known venue review site in the world used by 100's of thousands of venues across the globe, and millions of customers. One of the main challenges for venues gathering reviews is that it rely's on the visitor remembering to post a review when they have left the venue. The chances of this happening must decrease by the minute, following leaving the venue. Wooshping has tackled this straight on by introducing the TripAdvisor Instant Review Campaign which can be incorporated into anything from posters and tabletents, to keyfobs and stickers. The premise is very simple. You tap...

Nokia Lumia 1520 : NFC Review The "phablet" is a relatively new phenomenon in the smartphone market, with manufacturers pushing the boundaries of size to a whopping 6" screen. At this size the device just about remains in the smartphone phone category but is knocking on the door of the smaller sized tablet market, and hence the name. Nokia's high end entrant in the phablet market is the whopping Lumia 1520. It is enormous, but stunning. Under the hoof the specs are top whack including a quad core processor and a battery so large that it'll run the device for 2 full days on a charge. At...

Motorola TC55 : NFC Review These days, when style takes a precedence over substance, there is becoming an increasing need for niche devices that not only fit in the enterprise space, but are also designed with field workers, labourers, technicians and alike in mind. I mean, it's entirely reasonable for a crane operator not to want the latest beauty fest from Cupertino, or indeed the entry level smartphone offerings that wouldn't survive a spec of dust in a cabin 300 feet up in the air, or even worse, in a warehouse environment. This is where the Motorola TC55 comes in. This product is manufactured by Motorola...

Review of the year and 2 predictions for 2014 As 2013 draws to an end I thought I would try and summarise my thoughts and response to the year in terms of mobile engagement, Wooshping and the work we have been lucky enough to be involved in. Additionally, no review would be complete without a stab at some predictions for 2014; a year which I believe could see some fundamental shifts in the way we use technology. Review of 2013 2013 was Wooshping first full trading calendar year. Thanks to the support and approach of our customers we have been privileged to work on some ground-breaking projects with clients who...

Blackberry Z10 : NFC Review The Blackberry Z10 was launched with much fanfare around a year ago and it was going to be the saviour of Blackberry. It featured their brand new operating system, an approach that conflicted with Nokia's who had adopted the Windows Ecosystem for their smartphone range. So it was going to be interesting to see which approach would hold out the best results. Since then Nokia has been sold to Microsoft, and Blackberry has put itself up for sale. So you could argue that neither approach particularly worked wonders, but it does seem as if Blackberry has the bigger struggle ahead. Perhaps...

Nokia Lumia 620 : NFC Review It's been widely written that it's been pretty much Nokia themselves who have not only been keeping the Windows OS category alive, but even managing to grow it's market share whilst the likes of Blackberry and HTC look to falter. This growth has not been down to the high-end flagship devices like the 920, 925 and 1020 but rather the more affordable mid and low-end devices which the Windows platform allows to run on relatively meager specs. The benefit of this in terms of NFC has been that NFC has become increasingly accessible through mid and low range devices. The users...

Google Nexus 7 : NFC Review The Google Nexus 7 is still a fairly rare breed of tablet that has NFC embedded. For reasons only known to themselves, Samsung haven't yet included NFC in it's tablet forms of the Galaxy range which seems like a strange oversight given their commitment to the capability, and their support for it in their marketing campaigns. The Asus built Nexus 7 is a 7" Android tablet running Android 4.2.2 AKA Jellybean. The layout itself is fairly standard Android stuff with the Homescreens, Google apps pre-loaded (Play, Magazines, Books, Video, Music etc).  So out of the box, there was a slight tip to the hat of...

Sony Xperia Z : NFC Review There's no denying that Sony has been struggling in recent years in the mobile space. It's dropped Ericsson, re-acquainted itself with the Walkman brand, become an important pillar in Sony's cross-platform strategy, and concentrated on areas where they can add differentiation. The Xperia Z is a beautiful device, and the Android skin is fresh and different from the standard fare served up by the likes of Samsung and HTC. In terms of the NFC implementation though, this is where Sony shows, that a little bit of thought can make a big difference. To start, when you take the device out of...
