Wacom Bamboo Spark turns ink on paper into digital notes

Wacom has just announced the Bamboo Spark, a pen and notepad solution that turns handwritten notes into digital files. Users that prefer a physical writing experience on real paper can take notes or doodle just like they're used to, but don't need to worry about keeping and organizing the paper afterwords. Bamboo Spark features a real ink pen that communicates with a "smart folio" with an Electro-Magnetic Resonance board, tracking pen strokes and sending them to an iOS or Android device via Bluetooth.

Huawei G8 might be an affordable alternative to the Mate S

Huawei G8 might be an affordable alternative to the Mate S

Huawei may have just made a big splash at IFA 2015 to announce its new Mate S and finally launch the Huawei Watch, but apparently that's not all that it had to show. Almost rather silently, it also revealed the Huawei G8, which seems to bear many characteristics of both the Honor 7 and the new Mate S. The difference? Some slightly lower hardware and the absence of some fancy extraneous features that could make the Huawei G8 a more convincing and affordable option for those starting to root for Huawei's products.

ARCHOS DIamond Plus smartphone makes it just in time

Just when you thought ARCHOS was done spurting out one mobile device after another, it sneaks past one more just before IFA 2015 started. The third of its new Diamond family, the Diamond Plus smartphone is making the same appeal that Lenovo recently made with its new PHAB line: a bigger smartphone for those who want bigger things in life. That said, ARCHOS's phablet is not exactly as big as Lenovo's and it most certainly isn't as high performance as those either.
