The Walking Dead Pinball iOS review

Lewis Curdie  5 days ago

Hey guy. If you’re looking for an opinion on The Walking Dead Pinball, you’ve come to the right place. See, at the time of writing, I’m number two in the world. THE WORLD *flexes finger muscles*.

Following hot on the heels of Doctor Strange and Deadpool’s outings, Zen Pinball brings Telltale’s The Walking Dead to the table (pun intended). The Walking Dead? Good. Pinball? Good. Put them together?

Archos teases 40 Cesium debut Windows Phone among IFA arrivals

Archos teases 40 Cesium debut Windows Phone among IFA arrivals

Martin James  5 days ago

It's the week before a major technology show which means it's time for Archos to preview a gaggle of new mobile devices you've probably never heard of and almost certainly won't buy.

Well, that's how recent history has turned out anyway. Question is – can the French firm's pre-IFA 2014 vintage change that tune and make a lasting impact?

Google Nexus X specs listed by French retailer

Lewis Curdie  5 days ago

It’s largely accepted that the next Nexus smartphone is being built not by LG, but by Google’s former son Motorola, with codename Shamu.

Here we’re calling it the Google Nexus X, and seeing the specs listed by French retailer Fnac, however a closer look suggests we’re right to be cynical.

Samsung Galaxy A range to launch with three new phones in September

Samsung Galaxy A range to launch with three new phones in September

Lewis Curdie  5 days ago

For me, the Galaxy Alpha is one of the most confusing releases of late – even for a Samsung phone. See, it plugs the gap – if you can call it a gap – between the S5 mini and the flagship Galaxy S5, and looks to stand out with a dash of – shock horror – metal on the side. Er, just what everyone was… hoping for?

Confusinger still, we’re told the Galaxy Alpha is merely the first in an imminent wave of phones, with Samsung tipped to birth as many as three “Galaxy A” handsets this very quarter. Wow.

Bloomberg: 12.9in Apple iPad in ‘early 2015’

Lewis Curdie  5 days ago

The iPhone 6 in two sizes, the iWatch, the iPad Air 2, the iPad mini 3… All of those shiny new Apple products are tipped to land throughout September and October 2014, after an 11-month iDevice drought.

And as if all that wasn’t enough, we’re reminded that a gigantic 12.9in Apple iPad Pro is on the horizon, with a vague ETA of early next year.

HTC Desire 510: cut-price 4G thrills landing in September

HTC Desire 510: cut-price 4G thrills landing in September

Martin James  5 days ago

HTC is lining up the world's first 64-bit Android smartphone to launch at its pre-IFA 2014 press event next week, but in the meantime it has lifted the lid off another new arrival, the HTC Desire 510.

And while it's no high-roller its £149 SIM-free price tag earns it the title of HTC's cheapest ever LTE-capable smartphone.

HTC Desire 820: first 64-bit Android phone headed to IFA 2014 next week?

Lewis Curdie  6 days ago

HTC has already laid claim to “world’s first Android phone” (HTC Dream), “world’s first f/2.0 aperture on a smartphone” (HTC One X), and “world’s first 1080p phone” (HTC J Butterfly).

Now the Taiwanese manufacturer looks set to add a further trophy to the burgeoning “world’s first” cabinet, with the first 64-bit Android phone.

Sony ‘accidentally’ leaks possible SmartWatch 3 and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact

Lewis Curdie  6 days ago

To be fair, there’s not a great deal happening at IFA 2014 that we’re not fully braced for (er, bona fide surprises aside), but for what it’s worth, Sony has given semi-official confirmation of a couple of its imminent goodies.

The Japanese manufacturer has “accidentally” leaked a new Sony SmartWatch and what appears to be the rumoured Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. Interesting.

September Madness: What I’M looking forward to

Lewis Curdie  6 days ago

A few days ago, our Jan yelled: September Madness - What are YOU looking forward to? In case you’ve been living under an elephant, September is set to be one of the biggest months in the history of mobile, with IFA 2014, at least one Apple keynote, and lots more.

I’ve just realised I largely agree with the stuff Jan listed (I’m scared), but I’m going to formalise my answer with paragraphs and pictures regardless. Onward!

LG G3 Stylus officially detailed, definitely not a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 killer

LG G3 Stylus officially detailed, definitely not a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 killer

Lewis Curdie  6 days ago

With the recent success of the LG G3 flagship, you’d be forgiven for getting excited about something called the LG G3 Stylus, a name that immediately brings to mind the Samsung Galaxy Note range and its super-fancy S Pen.

But nope, the LG G3 Stylus is officially a watered down G3, ultimately intended to sit at an “exceptional” price point.

Android L: Lemon Meringue Pie?

Lewis Curdie  7 days ago

Not that it makes much difference to anything or anyone, but we’ve been having lots of fun guessing the name for the next version of Android, known officially as simply Android ‘L’:

A. Liquorice?

B. Lollipop?

C. Lemon Drop?

D. None of the above, is the latest suggestion, with Android Lemon Meringue Pie being the new front-runner, a claim backed up with several strands of low-level evidence.

Motorola Moto X+1 specs: optical zoom, 3D display?

Lewis Curdie  7 days ago

We’ve been talking about the Motorola Moto X+1 since, well, pretty much since the Moto X was released last year.

We got a good glimpse of the Moto X+1 the other day thanks to retired leakster Evan Nelson Blass (see above), and here we’re told to expect a couple of fancy features, namely optical zoom and some sort of 3D display. What the…?

Windows Phone? Android hardware to the rescue!

Windows Phone? Android hardware to the rescue!

Lewis Curdie  Aug. 23 at 18:00

It’s been an incredibly odd almost-four years for Windows Phone, with the initial partners essentially backing off when Nokia came on the scene, and Microsoft ultimately acquiring the ailing Finnish manufacturer (kudos, Elop).

But this week saw the launch – and release – of the HTC One (M8) for Windows, and with it there are signs Windows Phone might be about to turn a corner, largely thanks to Android.

Dream Revenant iOS review

Lewis Curdie  Aug. 23 at 17:00

The solitary quote on the Dream Revenant App Store listing comes from Kotaku, with the reviewer revealing that he played the game “on a whim” and 90 minutes later found himself crying. Oh, you big wuss.

It mightn’t reduce you to tears, but Dream Revenant is an undeniably emotive experience – surprising for a game that initially appears to be a simple, eye-friendly tech demo.
