Sony XBR-84X900 4K LED TV eyes-on: Amazing
If you are a TV enthusiast, you have undoubtedly heard of the new Sony XBR-84X900 LED TV. If you haven’t, this new television from Sony was just announced at IFA and we’ve covered the launch as it was announced. It has a 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution, which is exactly four times as many pixels as today’s 1080p standard.Tradeshows are not always a great place to look at these TVs […]

Toshiba LX835 All-In-One (AIO) desktop PC
We have seen some All-In-One (AIO) machines this week at IFA 2012, and the buck is not going to stop anytime soon, with the Toshiba LX835 All-In-One (AI) desktop PC being the latest candidate to line up under this particular category. Of course, the Toshiba LX835 occupies a more lofty “premium” category, sporting a capacitive multi touch screen with an Intel Core processor running proceedings from within, ably aided by […]

Toshiba Satellite S955 unveiled
Make no mistake about it, the Toshiba Satellite S955 might look like an Ultrabook at first glance, but upon closer inspection, it is nowhere near Ultrabook standards. Still, despite that, this faux Ultrabook will be 30% thinner compared to the current batch of 15″ Toshiba S series notebooks. Underneath the hood, you have a choice of either an Ivy Bridge Core i5 CPU or an AMD A8 APU, and if […]

Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 runs on Tegra 3, packs a mean display
We took a gander at the lesser endowed Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 earlier this morning, and here we are with a spiffier model – the 9” wonder known as the Lenovo IdeaTab A2109. It might not be as capable as the S2110, but this tablet will still be able to pack quite a punch thanks to its 1.2GHz quad-core Tegra 3 chipset that is accompanied by 1GB RAM. In terms of […]


Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 announced
So, there is a spanking new tablet announced (not another one!) at IFA 2012 in Berlin, Germany, and this time around, it is the Lenovo IdeaTab A2107. Originally targeted to launch in September, it seems that the Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 is right on track, where this rather rugged Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich powered tablet will have a 1GHz dual-core MTK Cortex A9 running at its heart. The IdeaTab A2107 […]

Lenovo IdeaTab S2110 at IFA 2012
Another day, another tablet makes its way to the scene, although this is slightly different from the rest by virtue of being a hybrid slate. We have seen the Lenovo IdeaTab S2110 drop by the FCC sometime in the middle of June, so that alone gave the game away that the device itself should be well on its way. Well, fast forward to IFA 2012 in Berlin, Germany, and we […]

Toshiba U925T 12.5" Ultrabook Convertible
With the imminent arrival of Windows 8, there is an avalanche of touchscreen laptops, but the Toshiba U925T is quite original in its design and does not use the typical “clamshell” design with a detachable keyboard.Instead, it uses a “slide and rise” (my term) design where the display can lay completely flat on top of the keyboard, turning the U925T into a tablet. When the user needs a keyboard again, […]

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Preview
As expected, Samsung has launched the Galaxy Note 2, which is even larger than the original Galaxy Note. Many didn’t think that this was possible to make it larger, but Samsung did, and they have pushed the concept of the Galaxy Note phone to the next level.First, the design is beautiful, and although it comes in two colors, I have to admit that I like the pearl white version better. […]

Samsung Unpacked, packed
We are finally done with Samsung Unpacked at IFA 2012 in Berlin, Germany, and what have we gathered so far? The recent ruling against them failed to take the wind out of Samsung’s sails, judging by what we saw. First of all, there is the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which has finally arrived, and while it has a larger display than its predecessor, it loses out in terms of resolution, […]

Samsung Galaxy Camera debuts at IFA 2012
It looks as though the rumor mills were correct, Samsung was indeed working on an Android-powered camera, culminating in the Samsung Galaxy Camera (glad to see them keep things short and sweet in terms of the naming convention, unlike the Nikon Coolpix S800c where folks who do not follow the news won’t even know that it is Android-powered), with the Galaxy name being retained to indicate that it runs on […]

Samsung ATIV S announced
Yesterday, we looked at the possibility of the ‘ATIV‘ name being used for devices from Samsung that ran on the Windows Phone 8 platform, and here we are today with the official word that Samsung had just introduced their first Windows Phone 8 device, calling it the Samsung ATIV S. This will (hopefully) be the first of many other Windows Phone 8-powered hardware, where Samsung claims it is “a superphone […]

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 officially announced
If the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is a device you’ve been looking forward to, well, the wait is finally over as Samsung has officially taken the wraps off the device! It also seems that the rumors were right to a certain extent, such as its design which we admit really is reminiscent of the Galaxy S3, what with the color choices and its curves.

Samsung Series 5 Ultra laptop, hands-on
Samsung’s Series 5 Ultra is the first generation of Samsung laptop to get an integrated 13.3″ touch screen optimized for Windows 8. The design language and overall build quality of this Series 5 Ultra reminds us of the 15″ Series 9. The body is made of aluminum, and the design is slick and very rigid. It’s not as thin as the Series 9, but it is in a different price […]

Samsung Series 5 and Series 7 Slate PCs, hands-on!
Ahead of Windows 8’s arrival on October 26, Samsung is launching a couple of Slate PCs with their Series 5 and Series 7 naming. Both slates have been designed to turn from laptop to tablet, thanks to their detachable display and QWERTY dock. In the Android world, this would be something like the Asus Transformer Series. These two tablets are powered by an Intel processor, so they run the desktop […]
