Four things you (maybe) didn’t know about the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

Lewis Curdie  4 days ago

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge isn’t quite available to pre-order in the UK just yet, but evidence suggests (most recently a leaked internal Carphone Warehouse communication) that it’ll go on sale on November 28. Yep, that’s Friday next week.

It’s a strange beast, no doubt, but Samsung is looking to allay fears that this is strictly a niche device for freaky-phone lovers with more money than sense. Here we present four things you probably didn’t know about the Galaxy Note Edge.

Jolla launches IndieGoGo campaign for Sailfish-rockin’ Tablet, target almost hit already (UPDATED)

Lewis Curdie  4 days ago

Cast your minds back to last week, and you might recall Jolla was promising “something BIG” for this morning, something that – quite logically, with hindsight – has emerged as a tablet.

More specifically, it’s an IndieGoGo campaign for the world’s first crowdsourced tablet, and the first running Sailfish 2.0. Impressively, at the time of writing, they’ve just about reached the $380,000 target. EDIT: Target hit!

iPhone 7 specs: DSLR-level camera?

iPhone 7 specs: DSLR-level camera?

Lewis Curdie  5 days ago

We’re partly relaying this news since it’s genuinely quite interesting, but partly on account of the ridiculousness of discussing a phone that’s in all likelihood some 10 months away from release. Yep, it’s the iPhone 7! Or perhaps that should be iPhone 6S, hmm.

In any case, the story goes that the next iPhone will mark a massive leap in Apple smartphone camera tech – the biggest leap ever.

Nokia's back! iPad mini-loving N1 tablet announced with Android 5.0 Lollipop

Nokia's back! iPad mini-loving N1 tablet announced with Android 5.0 Lollipop

Martin James  5 days ago

It's as if the past 12 months never happened. Nokia is back – and we mean the “old” Nokia, the real Nokia – with the N1 tablet, a brand new piece of mobile hardware running Android 5.0 Lollipop.

It bears more than a passing resemblance to the iPad mini 3, but also boasts a decent spec that matches and in some cases even beats Apple's benchmark slab.
