Kindle Paperwhite 2013 hands-on: refining the nighttime e-reader

The team at Amazon behind the Kindle have refreshed the Kindle Paperwhite with a boost to both software and hardware, and all the way over in Berlin this week we're having another look at it.

What you've got here is a 7-inch display working with IPS LCD technology and 1280 x 800 pixel resolution up front and a soft-touch cover on the back riding above a shiny silver toe.

Lenovo Vibe X hands-on: staying in stride with the top tier

At the last CES event, we got our hands on Lenovo's K900 handset, a powerful smartphone that has been eclipsed by the company's latest offering, the Lenovo Vibe X. With the Vibe X comes some of the features we liked most about the K900 wrapped in a modern makeover for the 2013 consumer sphere.

Panasonic Toughpad 4K UT-MB4 hands-on: 20-inch UHD tablet madness

Panasonic Toughpad 4K UT-MB4 hands-on: 20-inch UHD tablet madness

Twelve months ago Panasonic showed us a 4k display slotted into an oversized tablet and threatened to release it on the world; now, the Panasonic Toughpad 4K UT-MB4 has been born. 20-inches and 3840 x 2560 resolution, the Toughpad 4K UT-MB4 isn't being targeted at your average iPad owner - not least because it's ten times the price - but instead at architects, artists, and design studios, though we must confess feeling some lust ourselves. Read on for our first-impressions.

Sony HMZ-T3W wireless head-mounted display hands-on

Sony HMZ-T3W wireless head-mounted display hands-on

Last year, Sony brought the HMZ-T2 to IFA and tried to convince us to wear a 3D display helmet; at IFA 2013, the company is hoping that cutting the cord with the new HMZ-T3W will persuade us to open our wallets.

This time around, however, at least one of the cords has disappeared, though it's not quite the wireless nirvana Sony might like you to believe.
