HP pre-empts iPad Pro with Android and a screaming pen

HP pre-empts iPad Pro with Android and a screaming pen

Apple may be rumored to launch an iPad Pro with a special stylus, but HP has got there first with its latest Android tablets, the HP Pro Slate 8 and Pro Slate 12, packing a pen that uses sound not touch. Offered in both 7.9- and 12.3-inch sizes, the new tablets run Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz quadcore processor and are targeted at business users, particularly those who might want to digitize handwritten notes and sketches while on the move. Running Android 4.4 KitKat, they come with HP's own productivity apps, as well as sleek designs that look more than a little like HTC's One series of smartphones with their front-facing speakers.

HTC One 2015 Hima detail round-up: before the fact

HTC One 2015 Hima detail round-up: before the fact

It's that time again - time to get onboard with the next generation in HTC's hero phone lineup. This time around, the device is going by code-name HTC Hima. While no mention of the name "HTC One" has been made in the rumor mill thus far, we wouldn't be surprised if HTC stuck with what's worked for them over the past several years, moving out with an HTC One (place some new name here) sort of nomenclature. After that, it's all about the generational change-over to the newest processor, the best display, and some high-powered camera abilities.

Xiaomi Mi Note crams all the buzzwords inside a phablet

Xiaomi Mi Note crams all the buzzwords inside a phablet

Xiaomi has indeed come out today with its Redmi Note successor and, quite surprisingly, it's not the Redmi Note 2. Going with a different naming scheme this time around, the Mi Note has the same message as the Redmi Note and Xiaomi's other flagships: you don't have to sell an arm or a leg or both just to get a high-quality smartphone. And with all the high-end features and details that Xiaomi is revealing about the Mi Note, that is very well a proposal that many will be willing to swallow.

LG G Flex 2 hands-on – A curveball keeper

LG G Flex 2 hands-on – A curveball keeper

I guarantee that the first time you hold the LG G Flex 2 in your hand, you're going to ask yourself why aren't there more phones with a curved display. And that's LG's hook. Instead of making you read this entire hands-on to really know how I feel about the G Flex 2 (though, you know, you really should read it anyway), I'm going to just come right out and tell you that it's beautiful to look at and it's beyond comfortable to hold. I'm not just saying this just because this is another new device coming to market but because, for the first time in a while now, I feel that LG has hit a home run.

LaCie outs contrasting hard drives: one glamorous, one rugged

LaCie outs contrasting hard drives: one glamorous, one rugged

LaCie is probably more known for its storage bays and racks, but this time it is going for a more portable storage solution, though one of these two you might not want to actually carry with you outside. These two new drives also seem to be opposed to each other in most cases. One looks like a very classy ornament but has a somewhat low storage capacity, while the other is rough and rugged but with features to make your data also resilient. Introducing the LaCie Mirror and the LaCie Rugged RAID.

LEGO 2015 includes Invisible Jet, Hulkbuster, Stormtroopers

This upcoming LEGO-filled year is going to be filled with some really, really strange sets. The January - June catalog (the German version) for LEGO has been released and it's packed with Avengers: Age of Ultron, new DC and Marvel Comics sets, and Star Wars. Don't expect to see any Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets quite yet as the film is set to be released in December, but feel free to get pumped about the inordinate amount of Stormtroopers coming in multiple sets in the first quarter of the year.

Lego to release Wonder Woman’s invisible jet, sadly it is visible

Lego to release Wonder Woman’s invisible jet, sadly it is visible

Lego has announced that one of its sets to come out next year based on the DC Superheroes line will include Wonder Woman and her famed vehicle of choice, the invisible jet. Except the pieces used to build the aircraft are actually visible, and when you put them all together, they're still not invisible. Which kinda sucks. But there's not much else one can expect when everyone's favorite plastic bricks are still bound by the laws of science, is there?

HTC Hima in detail: before the fact

HTC Hima in detail: before the fact

The HTC One M8 was a direct descendant of the HTC One M7. Before that, there was the HTC One S and the HTC One X. Before that, there was a whole mess of phones released by the manufacturer with a lot less cohesive a plan than HTC is working with today. Today we've got codename "HTC Hima" to look forward to. What follows are specifications for the 2015 HTC flagship, along with sensible reasons for each specification affirmation. This is what we'll more than likely see on March 1st, 2015.
