Lenovo kicked off IFA 2013 way ahead of schedule by introducing the world to a heap of new ThinkPad laptops on Tuesday, but you didn’t really think that was it for the OEM and the Berlin expo, did you?
You know how there’s a small tech-focused event going on these days in Berlin, Germany and called IFA? Everybody that’s somebody in the mobile business is there to impress us with “innovations” and “upgrades”, save for Xiaomi, the Chinese OEM that’s recently snatched Hugo Barra from Google.
Samsung’s new phablet has a 5.7 inch 1920 x 1080 AMOLED screen, a 2.3 GHz quad core processor (LTE) and a UHD camera.
In only a few hours, Samsung will take the stage in Berlin to unveil its new Smartwatch and Galaxy Note III
And just like that, it’s September 4. D-Day. H-hour. The first day of the rest of our lives. But a day that’s bound to remain in Android history, not unlike September 3, when Google took the entire world by surprise and announced Android 4.4 KitKat.
Looks like someone at Sony made a blunder of catastrophic proportions with mere hours to go until maybe the company’s biggest smartphone unveiling to date. Not that the Xperia Z1 (aka Honami) was much of a mystery before today.
Aside from jumping the gun ahead of IFA 2013 and showcasing the world’s first 4K video recording capable smartphone, a very budget-conscious 10-inch tablet and a ginormous all-in-one PC running Android, Acer is apparently laying it all out there as far as its future plans go, too.
Just because Alcatel came forward with the One Touch Idol S and Idol Mini a few days ago, that doesn’t mean the company is all done with showing off its IFA 2013 guns. Not even close, as the French are actually only now pulling out the big guns, both figuratively and literally.
Although the upgraded version of the Fonepad has stopped being a secret ages ago, Asus seems keen to keep a tight lid on it for a while longer. Probably until the new Transformer Pad, PadFone mini, MeMoFone HD 5 and MeMoPad HD 8 will themselves become official, which should happen any day now.
Windows Phone 8′s GDR3 update is slated to bring support for 1080p resolution displays, and a leaked screenshot shows how the Live Tile interface on the OS’ homescreen will be affected as a result.
In the wake of Microsoft’s announcement that it’s planning on buying Nokia’s handset division, Microsoft’s operating systems boss says his company will still work with Windows Phone OEMs.
You’ll have to be pretty secluded from civilization to have never heard of Apple’s iPhone 5C to this point, but if you’re not yet fed up with seeing the upcoming “budget” iPhone maidenly smiling for the camera ahead of its formal intro, we have a real treat for you today.
Amidst the not-so-shocking news of Microsoft buying Nokia’s handset business, HTC has announced a number of products, and among them is the Desire 601, which previously leaked under the codename Zara.
As Samsung’s Galaxy Note III has basically starred in a new rumor every couple of days for the past month or so, you’d think the phablet would be as transparent as glass by now. And it is in many ways, only a number of tidbits are yet to be revealed or confirmed.
The Sony Xperia Z1 refuses to keep a low profile as we inch closer and closer before its official announcement, with Sony’s upcoming flagship now appearing in some crystal clear press shots.
Newly elected director thinks Blackberry will do fine, but there are “subsets” of the company that won’t survive.
Nokia might not look like a real threat for Samsung when it comes to minor things like, oh I don’t know, actual smartphone sales, but as far as advertising goes, the Finns look in much better, and perhaps more creative, shape than the Koreans of late.
For an OEM that’s not very much used to media attention or online buzz, Oppo sure knows how to build solid hype ahead of the N1 unveiling. And it does so aided by official marketing tools, such as the company’s Facebook, Google+ or YouTube accounts, which is even more commendable.
Two days, five hours and counting. That’s what’s left at the time of this writing until Samsung will finally take the wraps off the Galaxy Note III, Galaxy Gear and maybe even the Note 12.2.
You can’t close in on the once undisputed leader of a smartphone market as large and important as India by releasing one new product every six months, so Micromax enriching its Canvas line-up is probably not surprising news.
