Early September, Samsung announced their newest array of smartphones including the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge.
As reported, the Galaxy Note 4, being the direct reiteration of last year's Galaxy Note 3, will arrive in stores starting the mid of October. Meanwhile, the Note Edge still hasn't been given an accurate release date, until yesterday.
Gottabemobile reported that earlier this week, Japanese carriers have confirmed an October release for the curved display smartphone. The tech media outlet further said that the Samsung tech giant did confirmed the October date for the Japanese markets. more >>
Luxury and style seem to be BlackBerry's entrance ticket into the already stiff smartphone competition. Reports from Crackberry pointed out a set of leaked images showing a black colored, with gold-trimmings, BlackBerry Passport.
The so-called business smartphone from the Canada-based tech company has been first unveiled with single-colored Piano Black and Porcelain White. Now it is flaunting with golden side bezels (including the upper power and volume buttons).
The leaked images of the Golden Blackberry Passport Edition show that the device is pictured in a retail store. One of the images has also been watermarked with "ParisRoseGold." Paris Rose Gold is a firm known for manufacturing luxurious editions of popular handsets for other companies. more >>
In the market for wearables, there's no doubt that Samsung is currently the leader with their line of Gear smartwatches with their latest addition, the Gear S, scheduled for an October release. However, they might find themselves facing against upcoming opposition in the form of the Motorola Moto 360 and the Apple Watch.
The Moto 360 is clearly a different class in its own right with its round-face type design and standalone functionability. With the Gear S's square-type face design, it is clearly more suited to face off against the Apple Watch add in the two companies' long standing rivalry in the electronic device market.
The Samsung smartwatch's design is going to be similar to its other entrants with a curved Super AMOLED display. However, at 2.0-inches the Gear S is going to be the biggest of its line. The display has a 480 x 360 display resolution. more >>
Rumors that Apple has been working on a thinner Macbook started circulating last year, and now, there are speculations that the new Macbook Air will be released in an Apple event this month, specifically on Oct. 16. This is also the date when the Cupertino company will reportedly announce the iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 3 and the new OS X Yosemite.
The new laptop, also dubbed as the Macbook Air Retina, is said to include a 12-inch Retina display and will come in gold, silver and space grey finishes.
Jack Marsh, a 16-year old blogger who appears to have a reliable source with information on the new Macbook Air, claims that his source told him that the new design is so slim that Apple had to switch to a reversible USB Type C connector, which is a lot smaller than the USB 3. more >>
It's only been six months since the release of the Sony Xperia Z2 and the company has already released a successor to the already successful phone, the Z3. While it's not really an upgrade to the Xperia Z2, it does slightly improve on some of the already good points of the Z2.
The Xperia Z3 was released alongside its tablet and mini-phone family members, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and the Xperia Z3 Compact. It comes in four colors, white, black, copper gold, and silver green, has a slightly smaller profile, an improved camera, and a Sony PS4 Remote Play compatibility.
Even while being an improvement, Xperia Z2 users find little reason to make the switch except for the PS4 Remote Play compatibility, which the Z2 doesn't have. This would be a little troubling considering that Sony might release a Z4 in the next six months, leaving the Z3 with the impression of being outdated. more >>
The iOS 8 was unveiled during an Apple Press Conference early September this year and came out in tandem with the new iPhone 6. While expectations for the iOS 8 aren't as extravagant as the iPhone 6's, people still hoped that the new version of the operating system wouldn't just be a visual update like the iOS 7.
It wasn't fortunately and alongside an iOS 7 interface redesign, the iOS 8 came with new features as well as upgrades of already existing ones. First and foremost, the update is free and can be installed on any Apple device newer than the iPhone 4.
Essentially, the iOS 8 is available for the iPhone 4S and later, the iPad 2 and above, the iPad Mini and iPad Mini 2, and the iPod Touch 5th Generation. more >>
