It does look as though the world is getting more and more self absorbed these days, what with the selfie phenomenon having taken over the masses. Having said that, we have even seen “selfie phones” that were released in recent times, such as the Sony Xperia C3, and Nokia does not look as though they want to miss out on the bandwagon either with the official announcement of the Nokia […]

While Intel-powered Android smartphones are few and far in between, the same cannot be said for tablets because if you are looking for a new Android tablet, ASUS has recently announced the MeMO Pad 7 ME57c. The device is an Android-powered tablet that will use Intel’s Atom chipset, as opposed to a chipset of the ARM variety.
Samsung has announced yet another smartwatch and its called the Gear S. However there’s a major difference between this wearable device and almost all of its rivals. Having a standalone wireless connection means that the Gear S can be used to send text messages and make or receive phone calls without having to pair a compatible smartphone. Texting isn’t possible without a keyboard, and voice recognition doesn’t work perfectly with […]
On the eve of IFA 2014 in Berlin today Sony unveiled two new smartphones that we have already seen and heard a lot about. Today the Sony Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact were formally announced. They feature respectable specifications in sturdy build with Sony’s signature dustproof and waterproof certifications. There’s something unique about them as well. Both smartphones are the first to have support for PS4 Remote Play.
While many had assumed the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact would be Sony’s affordable handset, it looks like Sony has another handset that could fill that spot – the Sony Xperia E3. Unlike the Xperia Z3 Compact, which packs quite a punch under the hood save for its display, the Xperia E3 will come with slightly more modest specs.
At IFA 2014, Sony is launching a couple of new mobile cameras called “lens-style camera” and the Sony QX1 ($399) is the high-end one. It features an astonishing 20.1 Megapixel APS-C sensor (the same size sensor as used in many big DSLR cameras) which is linked to a Sony BIONZ X image processor which will decode, process and enhance the images in real-time.
The QX30 ($349) is Sony’s second lens-style camera to be released at IFA. Its design is closer to the original QX series in the sense that its lens is not interchangeable, but Sony has added what many users have been demanding: a powerful zoom capability, along with 60FPS 1080p movie recording.
As expected of Sony and the rumors, the company has recently announced the Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact Android smartphones. The former will be Sony’s second flagship smartphone for 2014, while the latter will be a slightly smaller model, ideal for those who figure that smartphones these days are getting a bit too big to be useful.
When it comes to Android tablets, we have to admit that Sony has done a pretty good job with their lineup thus far. Their tablets tend to look pretty good in terms of design and usually comes with pretty decent hardware as well. It looks like Sony expects to maintain that with the announcement of the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.
For a while, the world thought that Samsung was coming out with a competitor to the Oculus Rift VR headset. However, it is the exact opposite: earlier leaks indicated that the Gear VR would use a smartphone and it’s now official: the Samsung Gear VR is based on “Oculus technology”: it is a small, stylish VR headset shell that uses a Galaxy Note 4 as a VR display. In essence, […]
After much teasing, ASUS has finally taken the wraps off its smartwatch – the ASUS ZenWatch. As far as beautiful smartwatches are concerned, the Moto 360 led the pack for quite a while with its stylish round face which felt more like a watch than a hi-tech gadget. We admit we were a little skeptical about the ZenWatch and its rectangular-ish face, but based on the images we’ve seen, we […]
