Samsung Galaxy Gear hands-on

Samsung Galaxy Gear hands-on

Samsung already dominates the Android smartphone market; now, the new Galaxy Gear smartwatch wants to own your wrist. A companion to the new Galaxy Note 3 - and, initially, the Note 3 only - with a 1.63-inch, 320 x 320 Super AMOLED touchscreen, the Galaxy Gear squeezes a 1.9 megapixel autofocus camera with 720p HD video recording and macro mode, twin microphones with noise cancellation, and a speaker built into the adjustable clasp, into a chunky but solid watch form-factor. We caught up with Samsung ahead of the Galaxy Gear's IFA 2013 debut to find out more; read on for our first impressions.

Jawbone MINI JAMBOX hands-on

Jawbone MINI JAMBOX hands-on

First came the JAMBOX, Jawbone's play on the portable Bluetooth speaker, all the way back in 2010. Then the JAMBOX got supersized, as the BIG JAMBOX, for those times when more music meant more fun. Finally, we have the new baby of the bunch, the Jawbone MINI JAMBOX, a sleeker version of the original intended to fit it in pocket or smaller bag. We've been putting the $179.99 speaker through its paces; check out our first impressions after the cut.

Motorola Skip: It’s no digital tattoo, but it should solve Moto X PIN-pain

Motorola Skip: It’s no digital tattoo, but it should solve Moto X PIN-pain

Motorola's Skip accessory for the Moto X is the first in the company's steps to "superpower-like" authentication options, a clip-on NFC dongle intended to preserve both security and simplicity from the context-aware smartphone. Skip - which will initially be bundled with all Moto X orders placed through the Moto Maker site - clings to a coat, jeans pocket, or bag, and instantly unlocks the Moto X whenever they're tapped together, streamlining the "Touchless Control" system where Google Now is always listening. It's the first sign of what Motorola's Advanced Technology and Projects Group chief Regina Dugan promised was in development back in May.

Moto X Review

Moto X Review

Motorola needed to reinvent itself, and the Moto X is the result of that forced evolution. Guided - albeit at a remove - by new owner Google, the Moto X attempts to do what, arguably, no other Android phone before it has: step off the "biggest, fastest, brightest" treadmill and focus instead on the sort of real-world functionality that Motorola claims will make a significant difference for users. In doing so, though, Motorola pits itself against handsets that on paper at least are much more powerful than the Moto X, despite being the same price. Crazy strategy, or does X mark the spot for the future of Android? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

BlackBerry Q5 Review

BlackBerry Q5 Review

BlackBerry needs a new smartphone for the mass market, and the BlackBerry Q5 is its attempt to deliver. Cheaper than the Q10, though offering another sturdy QWERTY keyboard for text-addicts, the Q5 pares back the specifications (and, it has to be said, the design) to boost the BlackBerry 10 line-up by 50-percent. Is it third time lucky for the plucky Canadian company, or three strikes and you're out? Read on for the SlashGear review.

BlackBerry Q10 Review

BlackBerry Q10 Review

The BlackBerry Q10 might not have been the first BlackBerry 10 smartphone to reach the market, but with its classic QWERTY keyboard it's arguably the first proper new BlackBerry. Blending the new OS with both a touchscreen and the sort of physical text-entry functionality that BlackBerry addicts have been swearing by for years, the Q10 promises to bridge the gap between the Brave New World of touch and those for whom stabbing out an email reply wouldn't be complete without the crackle of tiny keys. Does that make it the missing link in smartphones, or just a bygone of an era that ought to be forgotten? Read on for our full review.

Samsung Galaxy Centura smartphone destined for Straight Talk

Samsung Galaxy Centura smartphone destined for Straight Talk

Samsung has quietly slipped a new smartphone into the market, this one destined for Straight Talk and bestowed with the Galaxy Centura name. The phone wasn't announced, instead appearing over on Samsung's website, where it currently sits without a price or launch date, but alongside a list of specifications that point to an all-around basic lower-end handset for those needing a (we're assuming) budget phone.
