    How important are bezels for you? We're constantly seeking the bezel-less tablet (and phone), looking at screen-to-body ratios, so it must be an important thing to own (and show off) a sexy device. In a world where everyone copies everyone, we hope someone copies this HiSense VIDAA Mirror tablet. The product itself is nothing new. It was spotted for the first time in China at the end of August, and then it was nowhere to be found, until it came to the CES 2016 show floor. This is one tablet where the internals (1.8 GHz Quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, QHD resolution) are ...

    CES 2016 has officially started, and, as it is usually the case with trade shows, it is pretty much over. Companies are generally unveiling products and services, making announcements, and gathering media at their press events prior to the official start of the show. However, that doesn't mean that Day 3 (which is the official day one of CES) was a boring one. Check out the most important things that saw the light of day, rounded up for you below, in case you missed any of the action. Alcatel OneTouch Alcatel OneTouch already announced a line-up of Pixi products, powered by Android (and ...

    Luca Todesco (qwertyqoruiop on Twitter) has apparently manage to achieve an iOS 9.2.1 Jailbreak, if the screenshot he posted (above) is to be believed. It shows Cydia running on an iPhone 6, powered by iOS 9.2.1. However, the tweet is accompanied by Todesco's not so reassuring promise that the jailbreak will not be released, at least for now. That, however, doesn't mean that you won't see a working iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak soon, as Todesco might either change his mind, or he might just pass along the information to another team who would release the jailbreak. Meanwhile, other teams are working ...

    Pre-orders for the Nextbit Robin -- the cloud-first smartphone -- have opened on October 22, 2015. Those who wanted to get their hands on the smartphone had to cough up $399, and be very patient until February of this year (next month), when their orders will be shipped. The situation isn't much better when it comes to those who have initially backed the project on Kickstarter. At CES 2016, the company's chief designer Scott Croyle revealed that February 16 is the date when the Nextbit Robin will ship out to its first 1,000 backers. However, according to The Verge, the phone has been ...

    There are two ways to run Windows 10 Mobile on your smartphone. You either install it on a hardware released previously (if you can, and if there's an update out there), or you experience it out of the box on the latest and greatest smartphones powered by Redmond's mobile operating system. So far, about the only two phones (and flagships) that came with Windows 10 Mobile out of the box were the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL, from Microsoft. However, you can now experience Windows 10 Mobile on Acer's latest, the Liquid Jade Primo, announced back at the 2015 IFA. And, to make things more ...

    If you're not familiar with Intel's Compute Stick, introduced in April of 2015, you should know that these USB thumb drive-sized sticks (almost) connect to your TV or screen via HDMI, and offer a full fledged computer experience. At the 2016 CES, Intel introduced its next generation of Compute Stick products, that are smaller, and powerful upgrades over the first generation. Three Intel Compute Stick variants are available: the entry level runs on a quad-core Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor, has 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and two USB ports. The other two are powered by more powerful ...

    CES 2016 isn't only about products. Services managed to make their way to Las Vegas as well, and, one of the most recent announcements comes from Netflix. During a recent keynote at CES, the company announced -- and flipped the switch -- on worldwide availability, adding more than 130 new countries around the world to its portfolio of markets where it is available. While English still remains the main language for Netflix, the company also added Arabic, Korean, Simplified and Traditional Chinese to the 17 languages it already supports. The service, however, is not yet available in China, ...

    If you are using Internet Explorer 8, 9, or 10, prepare to receive an "End of Live" notification on January 12. Part of the upcoming cumulative security update, the EOL notification that will pop up starting Tuesday will warn users that are still running IE 8, 9 or 10, that their days are numbered, and t's time to upgrade to the latest version of Microsoft's browser. This doesn't mean that Internet Explorer 8, 9, or 10 will stop working, or that it will mysteriously disappear from your computer. What this means, however, is that Microsoft will stop offering support in form of bug fixes ...

    Day 2 of CES (which is still day zero, as the show starts today, January 6) has been a rather busy day. Also known as "press day", it's when most of the companies show off their latest tech. Not that the day before was any slouch. In case you missed all the action on January 4, you can go ahead and see what you missed. Otherwise, read on for a recap of the most notable things that happened on January 5, 2016. Alcatel OneTouch Alcatel OneTouch brought a mix of Android and Windows 10 Mobile devices to this year's CES. There's a new OneTouch Pixi 4 family of smartphones with something for ...

    It's been a while since we told you that Casio was preparing to launch its first smartwatch this March. Thankfully, the announcement came earlier, as the company has unveiled its plans for the new Android Wear-powered Casio smartwatch at the ongoing CES 2016 in Las Vegas. It's name is a mouthful -- Casio WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch -- but it's built with military standard specifications. It will be available in April for around $500 and brings a 320x300 resolution display in a 1.32-inch form factor, water resistance, MIL-STD-810 build, pressure (air pressure, altitude) sensor, ...

    Aside from its new Notebook 9 series laptops and the Galaxy TabPro S 2-in-1, Samsung also brought a new Chromebook 3 to Las Vegas. At 17.7mm in thickness and 1.14kg in weight (has a reinforced metal body), it features an 11.6-inch display with a 1,366x768 resolution, dual-core Intel Celeron N3050 processor, 2- or 4GB RAM variants, and 16GB of internal storage. There's no exact word on pricing and availability aside from "early 2016". Additionally, Samsung has announced two new color options for its Gear S2 Classic smartwatch (not the sporty Gear S2). It will be available in Platinum ...

    Whether you love it or hate it, Twitter's 140-character limit is one of the key "features" that differentiates it from other social media offerings. Sure, you have to sometimes phrase your thoughts accordingly in order to tweet what's on your mind, but it looks like that won't be an issue in the future, if this WSJ report is to be believed. A person familiar with the matter unveiled that Twitter is planning on raising said 140-character limit to as much as 10,000. Said change is expected to be announced by the end of the quarter (March). The possibility of such a move has been both ...

    Xiaomi smartphone sales have been suspended by South Korea's second largest carrier, KT Corp. The move comes just two days after the network operator started sales through online shopping site Interpark Corp. on Monday. It also market the first time a South Korean carrier started distributing Xiaomi smartphones. According to unnamed sources familiar with the matter, there were "legal matters related to sales" at the core of the decision. Meanwhile, South Korea's third mobile carrier, LG Uplus Corp., has started selling the Huawei Y6 smartphone, mostly due to the increasing ...

    We weren't far from the truth with most of our assessments with the occasion of yesterday's Samsung Galaxy TabPro S leak. The South Korean manufacturer officially unveiled this Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet, and, as such, has officially brought the "Galaxy" name to the Windows world, instead of going with the "ATIV" moniker we've seen in the past. With a magnesium alloy frame and 6.3 millimetres thickness, the Galaxy TabPro S is very portable, weighing only 693 grams, which makes it a serious competitor for Microsoft's own Surface Pro 4. What doesn't, however, is the horsepower, as the Galaxy ...

    It's been a busy CES 2016 so far with lots of cool things coming out of Las Vegas, but we're taking a break to look at another hot topic. The Samsung Galaxy S7 might be missing from the show floor (and it's not quite sure whether it will make an MWC appearance, or, on the contrary, it will be the star of a separate, dedicated event), but it's not absent from the headlines. We recently heard of a possible 5.7-inch version with a 12MP camera, and we also caught wind of future possible features, like waterproofing and the return of the microSD card. The images contained in this article are ...

    Fitbit products are well known for being reliable fitness trackers (depending on who you ask, some might even consider them the best). However, while they do what they do extremely well, they don't look that attractive while doing it. The company is trying to change that with the newly introduced Fitbit Blaze, "its smartest, most stylish, most motivating fitness tracker yet". The tracker itself pops in and out of interchangeable bands (genuine leather, stainless steel and high-performance elastomer) and frames. It features a color display, but, sadly, the GPS module present on the Surge ...

    2015 wasn't the year for HTC to remember; despite solid flagships like the One M9 (and later variants), followed by the One A9, both the company's financials as well as the general public's reaction can testify to a rough year. Hoping to leave that behind, HTC and Under Armour are announcing the UA HealthBox at the ongoing CES 2016 in Las Vegas. This is not HTC's first collaboration with Under Armour. At the 2015 MWC the company has announced the Grip fitness band, but that wearable's story is a sad one too: availability was promised for spring of 2015, and, it still hasn't happened. ...

    CES 2016 hasn't even officially started yet (that happens on January 6, today, depending on your time zone), but we've already seen a lot of cool things in Vegas on January 4. Of course, there are a lot of things we expect to see at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, and a lot of things that will sadly be absent from the show floor. In case you missed something yesterday, here's a round-up of what happened on Day 1 (day zero, really).

    2014 was the year of the Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 and TabPRO 8.4, but, judging by this recent leak, 2016 will be the year of the Windows 10-powered Galaxy TabPRO S, that might even turn out to become a Surface Pro 4 (or Surface Book) competitor. We don't have any specs to accompany the leaked renders (though we're guessing it's just a matter of time), but what we're seeing is pretty self explanatory. A tablet that can turn into a notebook once a keyboard (probably cover as well) is attached, a tablet that seems to follow Samsung's design guidelines, as we're seeing nothing special ...

    Acer's presence at CES 2016 isn't limited to the Liquid Jade Primo smartphone and the revamped Iconia One 8 tablet. The company has officially unveiled the "most premium and advanced model" of its Aspire Switch line of 2-in-1 notebooks. It is the Acer Aspire Switch 12 S, with the model number SW7-272, one that could turn out to be a serious Microsoft Surface (and, why not, Surface Book) competitor. The Aspire Switch 12 S packs a 12.5-inch display with a 4K (3840x2160) or Full HD (1920x1080), depending on the model. Powering everything is a sixth-generation Intel Core M processor, 4- ...

    As we're getting closer and closer to when Samsung is usually unveiling its flagship smartphone, Galaxy S7 rumors are taking more and more headlines. After rebooting the line-up with the S6 (edge, edge+) and Note5, Samsung has found itself in a place it didn't expect to be, as forecasts were more optimistic than reality turned out to be. Furthermore,  Samsung Electronics Co Ltd is expecting a tough 2016, mostly due to weaker global economic conditions, as well as competition that's getting serious with memory chips and smartphones. Samsung's CEO Kwon Oh-hyun also mentioned that in ...

    It looks like over the past few years, according to a report published by The Information, Facebook has opted to deliberately crash its Android application in order to test the loyalty of its social network users. The report claims that Facebook wanted to see how many of its users would continue using the platform despite the issues they ran into. It is not yet known how many users were targeted, or where exactly these tests took place, but, a person familiar with the matter acknowledged that "people never stopped coming back". Even more, those who ran into these "planned" errors ...

    The Microsoft Lumia 950 (coming in pair with the beefier 950XL) might be Microsoft's flagship Windows 10 Mobile device --though our experience isn't the best as you can tell from our review-- but sadly it doesn't do anything to stand out in terms of its looks; that is, of course, until you start accessorising it with some custom back covers, like the Mozo leather back. The NuAns Neo, on the other hand, might be the prettiest (or ugliest, depending on your taste) Windows 10 Mobile phone out there. While it's specs aren't groundbreaking (with an octa-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon 617 processor, ...
