“Best things come in small packages” is what the elders used to say, but ask Samsung or HTC about the proverb and they’ll cut you off with a “bigger is better” retort. Not Sony though, as the Japanese have just brought to light the highly anticipated Xperia Z1 mini.
Pantech unveils Vega Secret Note, a 5.9-inch Galaxy Note 3 contender with stylus and fingerprint scanner
Don’t look now, Samsung, but your reign of terror over the booming phablet market is about to end. Or at least be seriously challenged for a change, though Pantech’s spanking new Vega Secret Note is likely to keep it modest and only go for South Korean gold.
Archos GamePad 2 goes official: same old design, same price, but faster CPU, more RAM and crisper display
