LifeProof iPhone 4/4S case and NUUD iPad case hands-on

LifeProof iPhone 4/4S case and NUUD iPad case hands-on

The folks at LifeProof have given us a hands-on experience with their iPhone 4/4S case lineup as well as their new NUUD iPad case. The iPhone case we're finding is so thin that it appears that there's no cover over the front - and yet there is. The iPad case allow you to dunk your device underwater - and the iPhone case does this as well. Basically what we've seen is that LifeProof iPhone and iPad cases make their contents impervious to damage - have a peek at how tough they are right this minute!

Toshiba Satellite U920t hands-on

Windows 8 devices are all the rage at IFA this year, especially tablets. Toshiba has a new Satellite - the U920t - on the scene, and like many tablets we've seen, this one is convertible into a notebook. However, unlike a number of the tablets we've seen, you don't convert this tablet by attaching it to keyboard dock. Instead, it features a slide out keyboard using a mechanism that Toshiba assures will provide for a smooth and stable transition.

iRobot Scooba 390 and 290 hands-on

This week we've had the chance to catch up with the folks at iRobot who have let us in on several new robotic cleaning machines in their Scooba and Roomba lineups. In our interview with the group we started out with the iRobot Scooba 390, a device that works with a four-stage cleaning process for a scrub-tastic cleaning of your large flat floor - toss out your mops! We had a peek at the iRobot Scooba 290 next, made much tinier to make with the small bathroom cleaning - gotta get behind those porcelain thrones, after all.

Jabra Solemate hands-on

Jabra Solemate hands-on

There's a new mobile wireless speaker in town and it goes by the name Jabra Solemate - and it looks like a really strange shoe. This device is indeed as the manufacturer describes - about the size and weight of a water bottle - and is able to play wirelessly (with Bluetooth), with a standard 3.5mm audio cord, or with a USB cable. This device has an integrated subwoofer and dual tweeters to keep you banging even in the most mobile-minded of places.

E-Ink concept double-display smartphone hands-on

E-Ink concept double-display smartphone hands-on

Big-screen smartphones may be the fashion, but how about two sizable screens on your next handset with negligible battery impact. SlashGear caught up with E Ink at IFA today to check out the company's latest prototypes, intended to spur some imagination among potential hardware partners. The mockups have a working e-paper screen filling the back, and a (non-functioning) LCD up front, offering two ways of displaying content simultaneously. And, while these might be concept devices right now, E Ink confirmed to us that there's at least one vendor looking at using the idea. Read on for a video demo.

Ditching the keyboard from your Windows tablet is a big theme at IFA this year, and Dell's XPS 10 is no different. A 10-inch Windows RT slate with a detachable keyboard slice - that also, unlike with some firms we've seen, accommodates a second battery - the XPS 10 crept out of its box and into our hands here at IFA today. Read on for our first impressions.

Dell XPS Duo 12 hands-on

Dell XPS Duo 12 hands-on

Windows 8 notebooks and tablets have come in all form-factors at IFA, but Dell's XPS 12 Duo is - with its rotating display - perhaps the most eye-catching of the bunch. Dell kept the 12-inch ultrabook behind glass after its initial launch, but we caught up with the company for some hands-on playtime. The takeaway is simple: the XPS 12 Duo takes the concept of the old Inspiron Duo and polishes it to the point where it's ready for primetime. Read on for our first impressions.
