Every couple of months, Zen Studios comes along with a spanking new pinball table, most recently The Walking Dead, which was based on the Telltale videogame of the same name – as opposed to the comic (yes) or the TV show (YES).
Argos has knocked £80 off the Lenovo Yoga 8, bringing it down from £199.99 to a significantly more palatable £119.99. And heck, have a free ‘£10 off when you spend over £100’ voucher, too.
Crazy week in the world of mobile, easily one of the craziest this year, thanks to these guys: the Motorola Google Nexus 6, HTC Google Nexus 9, Google Nexus Player, Android 5.0 Lollipop, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. Phew!
In the name of the great dragon lords above. Just when you thought it was safe to banish the phrase “Facebook phone” to the burgeoning annals of mobile disasters, it’s back for another spin on the rumour mill. Oh for f…
Seemingly undeterred by the utter embarrassment that was the almost-immediately-discontinued HTC First, Facebook has reportedly flown into South Korea to talk hardware with Samsung.
For those unfamiliar with Chinese manufacturer Oppo and its various wares, all you need to know is that last year’s Oppo N1 featured a rotating 13MP rear – and technically front – camera.
We’re skipping right past the Oppo N2 (no such thing) to the Oppo N3, and wondering what craziness the manufacturer has in store this time around. The latest batch of teasers suggests a camera that’s capable of rotating by itself.
If you liked the look of the Vodafone Smart Tab 4 back in May this year, but mourned the absence of 4G, Big Red has the answer to your tablet-flavoured prayers.
Meet the Vodafone Smart Tab 4G, described as the network’s “best ever tablet” and the “most affordable 4G tablet on the market”.
The iPad mini 2 is a pretty good buy these days, since it’s essentially an iPad mini 3 without the Touch ID fingerprint scanner, and a good £80 cheaper. Better still, at Tesco Direct, you can use code TDX-HPNY to knock a further £20 off, so that’s £219 for the 16GB iPad mini 2 in silver.
Unless I’m very much mistaken, Apple’s current tablet line-up is the largest it’s ever been, with no less than five iPads offered simultaneously at different price points.
They are, in vague order of price, the iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2 and iPad mini, and we gots full at-a-glance pricing below.
Last year’s iPad mini 2 was a fantastic little fella, essentially offering everything that impressed about the iPad Air, but in a smaller package. There was very little in the way of compromise. And let’s face it; when you’re paying hundreds of pounds, no one wants to compromise.
Perhaps realising that the tablet world’s definition of “better” is swinging back towards Big, Apple’s iPad mini 3 doesn’t impress nearly as much as the spanking new iPad Air 2. Full tear-stained story below.
Even the mighty iPad isn’t immune to slowing tablet sales, but Apple put a positive spin on things tonight by announcing that it’s sold 225 million of the things globally – that’s the iPad, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini 2 - since launch in 2010.
Here we’re meeting the eighth member of the iPad family, the iPad Air 2, essentially an upgraded version of last year’s iPad Air, with a slimmer body, faster processor, enhanced camera and fingerprint scanner.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has been available for three weeks on its home turf of South Korea, and tomorrow – October 16 – marks the phablet’s global launch, including the good old United Kingdom.
The obvious question is: What’s the difference between the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note 3? What can the Galaxy Note 4 do that the Galaxy Note 3 can’t? Join me below as I detail an as-yet-undetermined number of (EDIT: six) key changes.
AVG AntiVirus PRO is £8.99 on Google Play, but just 59p over on the Amazon Appstore for Android. I think that’s what they call a “no-brainer”.
The Google Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 have arrived as predicted, but before you close down Mobot for the night and head off to your specialist chat rooms, there’s a third prong to the Android hardware assault.
Meet Google’s Nexus Player, built by trusty old Asus. Available shortly, the first-ever Android TV device looks to take over your TV, with the movies and the music and the streaming and whatnot.
I speak of HTC’s Google Nexus 9, a premium beast with a Microsoft Surface-troubling magnetic keyboard accessory and brushed metal sides. Sounds good, yes, but it ain’t cheap.
Last year, LG’s Google Nexus 5 was pretty much as top-of-the-range as you could get for the time, including a 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM. A slouch it was not.
This year, Motorola is Google’s smartphone manufacturer of choice, and the resultant Nexus 6 doesn’t disappoint. Not one bit. Ok, maybe one tiny bit. Full story below.
Google confirmed its existence at the end of June (as if there was any doubt that a KitKat successor would touch down in autumn), and since then we’ve been referring to it simply as Android L or Android 5.0.
Lemon Meringue Pie (LMP) appeared to be the internal codename, and I had my suspicions that it might be Android Lion (as in the Nestle chocolate bar), but it’s officially now Android 5.0 Lollipop. Death to corporate sponsorship, I guess.
Here, Cubus Games brings Heavy Metal Thunder to the App Store (£1.99), and it’s actually more at home on mobile than it is on paper. Abundant words below.
The LG G3 was the world’s first big-name phone with a QHD (2560 x 1440) display, and mobiles.co.uk is currently offering to hook you up for £18 per month for 24 months – that’s £432 total over the two years.
Your monthly O2 allowance includes 500 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data.
The Google Nexus 6 smartphone, Nexus 9 tablet and Android L were at one point tipped to launch tomorrow, October 16, but with Apple holding its iPad event on said date, and big G keeping remarkably quiet about its much-discussed wares, we’d resigned ourselves to a late-October launch.
Imagine our surprise, then, upon hearing that the Google Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Android L will launch on October 15. THAT’S TODAY, YOU MANIACS.
