    Tommy smartwatch will cost just $75

    Before ASUS launched its first smartwatch at IFA earlier this month there was a thought that the company would deliver something significantly cheaper than other wearable devices of this kind.

    Samsung updates international Galaxy S3 to Android 4.4.4

    The Samsung Galaxy S3 is an aging device that is now over three years old, but we all remember what a juggernaut it was, amassing huge sales and an army of fans. I think few would argue that pound for pound the GS3 is better than the follow up handsets, the Galaxy S4 and S5, which is why the S3 is still so widely used even three years on. Samsung knows how popular this device is and the company is doing the right thing and continues to support it. More

    HP to launch Slate 17 tablet

    Over the last 15 years, no company has sold more PCs than HP and the brand is still considered among the biggest computer manufacturers in the world. Like many PC vendors, HP missed the boat with mobile, but with its coverage, market cachet, funds, and technological nous, HP should be a force in smartphone and tablets. The simple truth is though that it isn't doing well in mobile and the reason is products like the new HP Slate 17. More

    Windows 9 will be free for Windows 8 users

    Yes, we are a mobile oriented website, but we are breaking from our remit a bit to talk about Windows 9. That?s simply because versions of Microsoft's desktop operating system these days are the ones that are likely to be uniform across the mobile space too. With that in mind, when Windows 9 lands we can safely assume that a version of it will arrive on tablets and smartphones in due course. More

    The iPhone 6 will arrive in China soon

    Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch and roll out went swimmingly with the handsets racking up over 10 million unit sales over their first three days on release. Apple will be delighted, but there was a problem with China, with the country not passing the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus to be sold in the country. That meant Cupertino was stripped of the chance of selling even more units by rolling out in the world?s biggest smartphone market. More

    Microsoft opens a flagship retail store in New York

    Microsoft has become a hardware brand these days. Sure, the company still generates most of its income from Windows and other services such as Office, but the company also has its own Surface tablets and Lumia (bought from Nokia) smartphones. So, Redmond is now a member of the hardware gang, but does that mean the company has the clout to sell its gear in a dedicated retail space, a-la Apple? More

    This is third story on the Motorola Shamu in three days, so we are beating a dead horse a bit here. However, we started the chain, so by heck are we going to finish it.

    HTC One M8 EYE to ditch 4MP lens for a 13MP one

    HTC has broken tradition in terms of camera technology on its smartphones by not engaging in a megapixel war with rivals, at least on flagship handsets. Much like Apple, the Taiwanese company has a less is more policy and even goes lower than Cupertino with the 4 megapixel UltraPixel camera on the HTC One M8.

    Oppo offers plastic or metal choice for upcoming N3

    Metal is winning the premium war. Smartphones constructed from metal are deemed more luxurious than those carved from plastic, whether that's the case or not. There are plenty of quality plastic devices out there, but HTC and Apple have pushed the metal is better banner and other companies are following suit, even Samsung. The latest to offer a bit of cold metal premium is Oppo, the Chinese company that likes a whacky camera setup. More
