    Apple may have not invented the tablet computer, nor may have it been the first company to launch a fully functional product to the world. Still, that doesn't change the fact that the launch of the original iPad left a dent big enough that almost every competitor has followed in Apple's footsteps. Love it or hate it, Apple's iPad lineup remains king in the tablet world, and today we get a glimpse of its future. Today's event was full of iPads, though we wish we could say that all of them were new. Sadly not everything announced today was hot, and that's the main reason we keep our "Love ...

    Love it or hate it, iPhone day is iPhone day. This is one of the most anticipated events of the year, and Apple did what it can do best, which is try to sell its new products to you through its keynote address. Today we saw the company announce the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, two devices which were highly leaked all throughout the year. We also saw Apple announce new services like Apple Play in order to address the mobile payments sector, one that hasn't taken off since its inception under Google's leadership. And yes, there was "One more thing," the Apple Watch, which we did expect to ...

    "The BlackBerry Z10 isn’t the strongest reboot the RIM of old could have delivered," we wrote back in February in our Z10 review, "but it gets an awful lot right about the smartphone experience." We continued: "In a broader sense, it has accomplished something not many products out of Waterloo have managed in recent years: it’s made us excited for the next BlackBerry." The next BlackBerry to cross our desks turned out to be the Q10, the Z10's QWERTY-packing little sibling. And while we rather liked the plucky little curveball, we were left a bit skeptical that many folks would go out ...

    As we warned you in last week's first impressions video, spitting out a full Jolla phone review in the span of five days -in an unsupported region, no less- would have resulted in a pretty shoddy end product, and it also wouldn't have painted an accurate picture of the device. We generally don't review smartphones whose operating systems still carry the Beta tag, and we only review out-of-region devices if they fully support our local cellular bands. But though the Jolla that landed on our doorstep last week doesn't conform to these restrictions, we needed to take it for a spin anyway. The ...

    Even thought tablet computers have existed for more than a decade, they never really became as popular as Microsoft envisioned them to be during the early days. As much as we panned Apple for their launch of the first-generation iPad, mainly because it was just a big smartphone, the company proved that they had found the perfect recipe to make tablets as important as they are now. Today Apple dominates the tablet category by a very significant margin, and this is all thanks to the iPad. The iPad Air is Apple's 5th-generation 9.7-inch iPad, and really the 6th tablet they've brought to the ...

    The Google Nexus 5 has been one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year, though this year, for different reasons. Last year it was about making Android good and affordable, but this year everything has been taken from good to great. This device reminds us of the old Nexus One, which disrupted the Android ecosystem by pushing OEMs to raise the bar in their hardware specifications. Many don't remember this, but the spec-race actually began with this phone so many years ago. Today the Nexus 5 is a reality, and it's everything that most of us have wanted it to be. It's got the best ...
