Intel charges at mobile again with new Atom x3, x5, x7 chips

You have to hand it to Intel. It just doesn't let go of a dream. Despite not being able to make a big enough dent in the smartphone market, it is still soldiering on, revising its strategy again and again. While many of us thought (or hoped) that the chip maker would just focus on wearables, it's taking another stab at smartphones, phablets, and tablets. This time with a new line of mobile chips under the names of the Atom x3, Atom x5, and Atom x7.

You want the Nokia N1, but you can’t have it: Hands-on

You want the Nokia N1, but you can’t have it: Hands-on

Nokia's N1 tablet may not be the newest Android on the block, but its China-only availability has meant checking out the iPad mini-esque hasn't been easy. Happily the Finns have been showing off the sleek hardware here at Mobile World Congress, and I can legitimately say I'm suddenly jealous of mainland China. Sure, the design is nowhere near original, but with a sticker price equivalent to $249 and what's possibly the best-constructed hardware of any Android tablet I've used recently, it's hard not to be impressed.

Archos announces Fusion Storage tech, 256 GB tablet

Archos announces Fusion Storage tech, 256 GB tablet

When speaking of mobile devices, there are usually two kinds of storage. Internal memory which comes with all devices and, for those with microSD card slots, external or expansion storage. Android seems to have a love/hate relationship with the latter, with Google opting to scrap it altogether because of security and stability, while users want the freedom to expand their available storage. Archos seems to have a rather strange solution called "Fusion Storage" that attempts to virtually combine the two into one unified "internal" memory.

BlackBerry Leap: for “rising stars” with BlackBerry values

BlackBerry Leap: for “rising stars” with BlackBerry values

If you thought that BlackBerry was going back to its physical QWERTY keyboards for good, its announcement at MWC 2015 just proved you wrong. Introducing the BlackBerry Leap, the next all-screen smartphone from the embattled company. The Leap is selling itself as a smartphone for a younger generation, hence the lack of physical keyboards, yet shares in the same features that enterprise-level BlackBerry 10 devices have, including security and Android apps. All supposedly for an affordable entry-level price tag we have yet to know about.

Chrysler reveals (another) recall: all Hellcats affected

If you've been paying attention, you will have noticed a pretty serious trend over the past couple months: automotive recalls. We've seen quite a few this year already, but Chrysler is quickly gaining all the attention with its number -- sometimes back-to-back -- of recalls. Today brings yet another recall, marking the third from the auto maker in five days. This one affects Chrysler's Hellcats...all of them. The maker is recalling all of its SRT Hellcats because their fuel could start leaking.

Woolet smart wallet barks so you won’t lose it

Woolet smart wallet barks so you won’t lose it

We've seen some snazzy wallets in the past, including this minimalist metal one, but some are more inclined toward soft leather. Such is the nature of Woolet, but it hides a lot of modern trimmings, including Bluetooth connectivity. This mixes traditional, sophisticated stylings with the perks of modern technology to create an overall product not terribly likely to be lost -- it can, after all, alert the owner of when it is being left behind. See it in action after the jump!

TIE Interceptor drone joins Millennium Falcon replica

TIE Interceptor drone joins Millennium Falcon replica

If you, like a growing number of UAV hobbyists, love a good flying replica, the man behind the Millennium Falcon drone is back with another creation: a TIE Interceptor drone, which is likewise styled after a Star Wars spacecraft and fully functional, at least as far as drones go. The creator goes by the handle "Olivier", and he has shown off his latest creation in a couple of YouTube videos, one of them at night so that the drone's flashing lights are visible.
