Samsung Galaxy S5 Will Be Region-Locked As Well

When Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 3 back in 2013, it was discovered that the phone came region-locked, meaning that if you bought the device through a grey market import, you’d have to find some way to get a SIM card from the country that it originated from, use it for a few minutes, and you’d be good to go. This was a minor inconvenience but it was a way […]

Analyst: iPhone 6 Sleep/Wake Button Could Be Relocated

It goes without saying that many people are on the lookout as to what Apple has in store for the rest of this year, and the iPhone 6 would certainly be on many peoples’ minds, this I am sure.

Age Of Empires: World Domination Greets iOS, Android And Windows Phone Platforms This Year

It was in June last year when we brought you word that Age of Empires, the real time strategy (RTS) game which was pretty solid and fun to play, but somehow was overshadowed by the likes of Blizzard’s StarCraft back in the day, would be making a splash on iOS and Android platforms then. Well, fast forward to nearly a year down the road, and we have Microsoft working to […]


BlackBerry CEO Optimistic That Handset Business Will Be Profitable By 2015

BlackBerry CEO John Chen has gone through the usual misquote train in recent times, where he had to step forward to deny that the BlackBerry handset division might go on sale.

BlackBerry Q20 Will Be Officially Known As The BlackBerry Classic

During MWC 2014, BlackBerry unveiled two handsets, the BlackBerry Z3 and the BlackBerry Q20. Given the way BlackBerry has been naming their handsets, we guess we’re all pretty much used to referring to them by their name and model number, but apparently for the BlackBerry Q20, BlackBerry’s CEO John Chen decided to remind everyone that the handset will actually be named as the BlackBerry Classic. Now Chen has tossed that […]


Only PureView And High-End Nokia Handsets To Get Dedicated Camera Button [Rumor]

Dedicated camera buttons on smartphones can be handy and can result in more stable images compared to having to press the on-screen shutter button. It also makes the camera feel more “natural” since a physical shutter button and the way it’s held is more familiar, at least for those who have been using cameras for a long time. Now if there’s one thing that you’ve probably noticed is that Nokia […]


France Offers Phone Contract Via Vending Machines

Ah, France, the land where your boss is no longer allowed to contact you by email once you have clocked out from the office. Of course, a whole lot of that remains as theory, as enforcing it is going to be a whole lot trickier than expected. While Japan is the country with the highest number of vending machines per capita, this does not mean that other countries, too, are […]
