Another week, another bunch of stories about mobile phones and tablets. It doesn't get much more literal than that. Highlight of the week was undoubtedly all the new HTC stuff, including the HTC Desire Eye, HTC Re camera, and HTC One M8 Eye. Meanwhile, things appear to be going from bad to worse for Samsung.
As for comments, the Google Nexus 6 certainly impresses in terms of specs, but we wonder about the price tag and the lack of microSD.
This week's app reviews were pretty diverse, starting with I Am A Brave Knight, a short story about life and death; moving on to The Banner Saga, a five-star tactical RPG wrapped up in a superb story; and finishing with Daddy Long Legs, an endless runner with a nigh-on-impossible-to-control protagonist.
Next week sees the launch of the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 (probably); that's on October 16, while the Google Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Android L might well land in the next seven days.
