  • MWC 2015 live blog: Intel announces new Atom X-series SoCs

    It’s pretty early for those reading from the States and its smack in the middle of the work day for us closer to the Greenwich line, so keeping track of MWC 2015 using the official livestreams available is a bit of a pain. But let us ease any worries and qualms you might have. Our MWC 2015 live blog will track Barcelona’s mobile movements as they happen. Oh, and they’ll be happening rather quickly at that if the bundle of pre-event news is anything to go by. If you missed our build up to MWC 2015 and all the rumours, punts...

  • The Gizmondo, ‘Battlefield Hardline’ and LG Watch Urbane: this week’s TGIF Video Roundup

    You know, these February weeks are really dragging along this year, but that’s not because there’s a slew of gaming and gadget releases coming in hordes next month, thanks to the MWC and GDC. Considering that it is March in just a few days time, we have a look at one of the most special handheld gaming consoles that launched in March nearly a decade ago. It’s a right shame that Nintendo doesn’t have much competition in the market anymore. Nevertheless, we also have a gander at LG‘s latest smartwatch, the Watch Urbane, paraded in its launch trailer. But not everything...

    We all knew that the LG G Watch R was one of the more beautiful smartwatches on the market, but hell, even LG had to out do itself with this one.

  • 5 things Nintendo got right on the New Nintendo 3DS XL

    It’s an age old question and not just for Nintendo’s last and current generation handheld consoles: is the new really better than the old? Often manufacturers launch products that aren’t exactly revolutionary, or in many cases are actually a lot worse than the product they strive to improve. While Nintendo is something of a past master at crafting handheld consoles in ways that many companies attempt to replicate, the previous generation 3DS wasn’t exactly universally loved. So, with that said, we went in search of the real jewels in the New Nintendo 3DS XL‘s crown to see what the Kyoto company really...

  • Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet leaks just days before MWC

    Is this why Sony has been so quiet on the mobile front this year? The company has been hard at work on an upgrade of the lauded Z3 series of smartphones and tablets (pictured above), and it seems as though the “Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet” has been spotted. Ironically, the tablet was leaked by Sony itself on the Sony Lounge app that comes pre-installed when purchasing an Xperia device. It was swiftly pulled, but not before an XperiaBlog tipster caught a screenshot.

  • Crota’s End soloed, The Order: 1886 cast and H1Z1 peace treaty: this week’s TGIF Video Roundup

    TGIF, and we really shouldn’t be at work, but that won’t stop us from gandering through the week’s best tech, gadget and gaming videos, now will it? We missed a TGIF Video Roundup edition last week to cater for all the sappy lovers out there (and dependable stalkers too). So we have a lot to make up for this week. Luckily, you’re in for a treat. After the infamous six-hour gameplay video playthrough of The Order: 1886 was taken down, we were rather annoyed. Nevertheless, Ready At Dawn has published a new character roundup trailer that takes prospective players through 1886’s...
