Fotonica iOS review

Lewis Curdie  2 hours ago

A report from my Higher Physics teacher once declared: “Lewis persistently appears disinterested and is easily distracted, but consistently completes work to an incredibly high standard.” Story of my life.

Physics, protons, photons, Fotonica on the App Store. See what I did there? And that’s the first two paragraphs wrapped up in a neat little package.

Google Nexus 4 Android L update on the cards?

Google Nexus 4 Android L update on the cards?

Lewis Curdie  5 hours ago

Google lifted the lid on Android L at the end of June, and while the release is just about visible on the horizon (mid-October, probs), we’re still not entirely sure which existing Nexus devices will see the update.

There was a definite question mark over the near-two-year-old Google Nexus 4, but fresh evidence suggests it might be good for Android L action after all.

WSJ: Google aiming to avoid Android tablet monopoly with HTC-built Nexus 9

Lewis Curdie  7 hours ago

HTC’s record in the tablet industry is – how do I put this? – less than stellar, with the 2011 Flyer having emphatically failed to set the world on fire. The US met the equally uninspiring HTC Jetstream shortly thereafter, and that was the end of that.

Fast-forward three years and HTC might seem like a strange choice for Nexus tablet duties, but sources of The Wall Street Journal reckon the Taiwanese manufacturer is the perfect fit.

Google Nexus 9 tipped to arrive alongside ‘tube-shaped’ waterproof camera

Google Nexus 9 tipped to arrive alongside ‘tube-shaped’ waterproof camera

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

Here we’re tentatively tying two rumour threads into one knot. I say “tentatively” because I’m not entirely convinced with the result, but we’ll give the hybrid story an airing regardless and let you make your own minds up.

I speak of HTC’s mysterious October 8 Double Exposure event, and the seemingly imminent Google Nexus 9. Put them together, throw in the notion of a “tube-shaped” waterproof camera, and, well…

Samsung Galaxy A5 pictured, looks a bit like an iPhone 5s

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha has proved to be one of the most divisive phones of late, with some claiming it’s the dawn of a new era for the South Koreans, while others wonder why it even exists.

Samsung is charging ahead regardless, as the Alpha marks – as reported – the first in a series of phones, and here we’re getting a closer look at the iPhone 5s. Sorry! The Samsung Galaxy A5.

Vodafone acquires 140 Phones 4u stores, but redundancies hit Newcastle HQ

Vodafone acquires 140 Phones 4u stores, but redundancies hit Newcastle HQ

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

Having pulled its support for Phones 4u and ultimately crippled the retailer (with a little help from EE), Vodafone has donned its shining armour and come to the rescue of 887 jobs.

Yep, Big Red has kindly (ahem) snapped up 140 – what were formerly – Phones 4u stores, and announced that the 887 staff members will each be given a brand new Vodafone polo shirt. However, it’s not all good news. More below.

Review of the week

Review of the week

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

What. A. Week. I'll resist the temptation to turn Mobot into an impromptu political forum (though mobiles did play their part in recent goings on), and instead focus on... Apple's iPhone 6!

Yep, the iPhone 6 is on sale now having set all sorts of pre-order records, and pretty much the last thing you would've wanted to do is emerge from the Apple store and immediately drop your new purchase in front of the world, right?

Tizen latest: first phone in November, not the Samsung Z?

Tizen latest: first phone in November, not the Samsung Z?

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

Incredibly, Tizen was first announced back in September 2011 – three years ago, and while we’ve met various bits and pieces of wearable tech with the OS on board, the first Tizen smartphone has yet to see the light of day.

The latest rumours suggest it’ll be released in November, and while there’s no specific mention of hardware, it probably won’t be the Samsung Z. Y’know, the phone that was supposed to be released in July?

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5 to get Android L by late November?

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

Android L is a real thing, in the sense that it’s been detailed by Google, and the release is expected to fall next month at some point, accompanied by some tasty new Nexus hardware.

Eager beavers are already starting to question when their devices will be updated, and for owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5, the answer could be as early as late November.

As BlackBerry watchers will know, the intriguingly different BlackBerry Passport is now less than a week away from going live, and even if it's a complete flop, the Canadian firm deserves credit for trying something different.

But it turns out the Passport has been pipped to the post by another BlackBerry – the Porsche Design P'9983, which was unveiled this week in Dubai.

Apple iPhone 6 on sale now, don’t drop it on the pavement

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

Today’s the day many have been waiting for, as the Apple iPhone 6 is now available to buy across, er, many many countries, including – of course – the UK, which still encompasses Scotland.

Needless to say, if you’ve been queuing for the iPhone 6 for days (as many have), the last thing you want to do is drop it on the ground outside the shop, right?
