    Sony is finally taking the US market seriously. In the past the Japanese giant has rolled out mobile products months after they first launch in other markets. However, the company has already detailed plans for the latest Xperia Z3 to land in the US alongside the rest of the world, while the Verizon exclusive Xperia Z3v is also confirmed for launch this month.

    Sony's Xperia Z3v is actually an Xperia Z2 variant

    Sony and Verizon launched a new device last week in the form the Xperia Z3v, which as the name suggests is a variant of Sony's latest Xperia Z3 flagship. However, after taking a close look at the Z3v and spending some time with the handset we have found that Sony and Verizon have been a bit crafty. Check out our in-depth look at the Xperia Z3v and fine out why we think Sony is being cute with the name of this device (the clue being this is not a Z3 at all). More

    ASUS ZenWatch to launch in very limited numbers

    ASUS surprised us at IFA with its ZenWatch wearable. The company's first ever smartwatch had been widely reported to be a budget take on the Android Wear ecosystem, but instead it arrived as a premium device. Sure, it has the same specs we have become used to on Google's platform, but the ZenWatch launched with high end materials and a price tag to match. More

    20 million iPhone 6 pre-orders in China

    When reservations for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus reached 2 million in China last week, I suggested that when the devices were made available for pre-order in the country they may get close to matching the figures posted during their earlier initial launch in nine countries. Well, how very wrong I was as the new handsets have been snapped up in unprecedented numbers in China with up to 20 million units being bought. More

    Samsung could be readying new smartphone UI... goodbye TouchWiz?

    You may think that as the biggest Android vendor, Samsung is the voice of the platform and shows us exactly what Android is all about. However, that is not actually the case because most Android fans dislike Samsung's TouchWiz Android UI, while others outright hate it. Even some Samsung fans admit it has its considerable flaws.

    Galaxy Note 4 lands on Amazon in the US, unlocked and without warranty

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has arrived in the US and is now available to purchase through Amazon, which is selling the unlocked international variant of the phablet flagship. That means the device is available before the official roll out of the US version of the handset on carriers later in October.

    Sharp's AQUOS Crystal lands on Sprint and Boost Mobile

    You may remember the AQUOS Crystal, the screen to edge device launched by Sharp a couple of months ago and confirmed to be heading to US carrier Sprint. Well, I have played around with the handset and can say that the lack of bezels around the edge is just mind blowing, and it is a decent mid-range workhorse too. Sprint has now rolled out the device on its pre-paid purchase plan, while subsidiary Boost Mobile has also confirmed it will be carrying the handset. More

    Google Nexus 6 launch on October 15th

    Earlier this month there were several reports that Google would be launching its new Nexus products on October 16th. However, Apple announced its new iPad launch event for the 16th, which mean Google probably wouldn't be going toe to toe with Cupertino. And so it proved as Mountain View clarified the situation today by scheduling its event for October 15th, with Android L also likely to arrive alongside the Nexus'. More

    HTC launches One M8 EYE in China

    Before HTC launched the Desire EYE earlier in the week there were widespread rumors that the company's One M8 EYE would also land. However, the Taiwanese company said that the M8 EYE would be landing solely in Asia, at least for now, and the Desire EYE would be global. That has proved the case today as the One M8 EYE has launched in China on the company?s official store within the country. More

    Desire EYE landing as an AT&T exclusive

    It still amazes me that carrier exclusives are a part of any smartphone manufacturer's business model. While success have been had in the past (the iPhone and DROID for example) more often than not these days such exclusivity limits a handsets appeal and they are often poor sellers. So, it is a little puzzling why HTC has decided to make its pretty darn fantastic Desire EYE and exclusive with AT&T. More
