    Sony cuts mid-range devices from strategy

    Sony has been quiet on the smartphone front this year. Sure, you may be thinking about the flagship devices that the company has launched this year from the Xperia Z range, but there have not been a slew of mid-range and low end efforts in 2014. The ailing giant has gone someway to explaining that by confirming that it will be cutting down on mid-tier and budget smartphones in the future. More

    Android Silver killed by Google and bearing fruit in Nexus

    Earlier in the year we were all writing obituaries for Google's Nexus line of hardware devices as it was widely reported that the company was nixing the range. It was thought that the Android Silver project would be replacing the Nexus branding as Google sought to move into a new high end space. With new Nexus devices imminent, the rumour has been exploded and it now looks as though Google will instead kill off Android Silver. More

Hardly shocking stuff as Apple could put out a feature phone with and i on the front of the name and win rave reviews (the general consensus so far has been 90%, 9 out of 10, that kind of stuff). The early reviews for Apple's new flagship devices are in and the general word is that both are very good handsets, with the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 apparently a better choice than the iPhone 6 Plus. More

    Oppo N3 due next month with strange camera housing

    Oppo's N1 smartphone flagship made a name for itself back last year because it has a rather cool swivelling 13 megapixel camera that could be used for normal shots and selfies. However, Oppo for some reason did not support the 5.6-inch leviathan, not even upgrading it to Android 4.4 KitKat. The company is now gearing to release another camera oriented device in the shape of the N3, and the Chinese brand has sent out invites for the launch event. More

    Samsung is developing its own sitcom... look away now

    Oh please no. I just checked the calendar and no, it's not April Fool's Day so this news that Samsung is planning its own sitcom is the real deal. As worrying news goes this is right at the top so we can probably expect many cringe worthy moments ahead from the Korean company. The show is about to start shooting and will be a South Korean production centered on a fictional Samsung worker and his/her friends. More

    Panasonic's Lumix CM1 is more camera than smartphone

    If you take a look at the main image above, you would be forgiven for thinking that this mobile centric website had suddenly become CameraBurn. However, this device is actually a smartphone that is simply masquerading as a camera; so, the ultimate camera phone then. Or that is certainly the intention with the new Panasonic Lumix CM1, an Android powered smartphone that is the Japanese company's first in over two years. More

    Apple now lets you delete the U2 plague

    And there was me thinking everyone was a U2 fan. Bono and his cohorts have invaded a great many people's iTunes accounts since Apple launched the iPhone 6 and it seems that consumers are not pleased. It turns out most people do not want free stuff when they are forced to have that free stuff as they have reacted angrily to U2's new album simply appearing in their libraries. More
