Fancy it? Argos on eBay has knocked 26% off, so that’s £161.99 for a brand new Nokia Lumia 1320 with 12-month warranty.

OnePlus Two: metal bod, more expensive than OnePlus One?

Lewis Curdie  1 hour ago

With the “Flagship Killer” OnePlus One being one of the highlights of 2014, it’s a no-brainer that one of the phones we’re most looking forward to in 2015 is the inevitable OnePlus Two.

Details are still relatively scarce at this stage, but a fresh report suggests we should expect a premium metal design, alongside a premium price tag.

Huawei ‘confirmed’ as manufacturer of the next Nexus smartphone

Lewis Curdie  17 hours ago

HTC, Samsung, LG, Motorola, Asus… We’ve seen various manufacturers take the Nexus reins over the years, but one thing missing from that list is a Chinese manufacturer (no, Motorola doesn’t count).

Rumour has it we can finally expect a Chinese Nexus smartphone later this year, and once again we’re told it’ll be Huawei at the helm.

Typical; you wait weeks and weeks for an iPad Pro rumour, and two come along at once. Not that we’re complaining!

The first report suggests Apple iPad Pro production has been “delayed” till later in the year, while a second report relays some rather interesting iPad Pro specs.

Fast & Furious (2009) freebie deal! Free to buy @ Google Play

Lewis Curdie  19 hours ago

Incredibly, I have never seen a single Fast & Furious movie, not a single one of the 152-film series.

But I can start righting that particular wrong today, with this Fast & Furious freebie deal at Google Play. It's free to buy and keep - not just rent! And in HD, too!

This is the 2009 film, not to be confused with The Fast and The Furious.

Apple iPhone 6S specs: 2GB of RAM, Apple SIM for easy network switching?

Lewis Curdie  20 hours ago

Considering the massive design change introduced with the iPhone 6 (in particular: leaping from 4in on the iPhone 5s to 4.7in and 5.5in), we aren’t expecting anything particularly jaw-dropping from the iPhone 6S – not in terms of design, at least.

Inside, however, the iPhone 6S might mark two rather significant changes, specifically double the RAM of the iPhone 6, and the ability to switch networks at will.

At the end of January I penned Apple vs. Samsung in 4Q14: too close to call, with the iPhone seemingly shipping round about the same number as Samsung’s combined Galaxy army.

Now Gartner is chiming in with its own figures, suggesting that Apple did indeed take the top spot in global smartphone manufacturers for the final quarter of 2014.
