Intel’s 5G aspirations: mobile, PC, cloud, IoT, end-to-end

This week Intel appeared at MWC 2016 to speak largely about the imminent onset of 5G mobile data. They suggest that they are "one of the only industry players" that's able to deliver an end to end 5G solution.

They're ready to roll right now. Ready to roll for 5G data.

Epson Moverio BT-300 hands-on: OLED switch for AR upgrade

ZTE curiously silent on new Blade V7 smartphone at MWC 2016

MWC 2016 is usually an opportune time to put out your latest mobile related wares to take advantage of the synergy of energy, not to mention media attention, congregating in one single place. So it's a bit puzzling that ZTE is so far publicly silent about a new smartphone it has prepared. Especially considering it already unveiled a new projector earlier anyway.

But Sony has a couple more devices and ideas up its sleeves, including an Xperia Eye "lifelogging" camera, an Xperia Projector, and an Xperia Agent home assistant.

Zuckerberg at Samsung UNPACKED: VR is the next social

It isn't unusual for Samsung to summon experts and giant personalities on stage to help it market its newest smartphones. But when it comes to its VR products, it needed a stronger push. When it first unveiled the Gear VR, it had game development luminary John Carmack of DOOM fame make the tech spiel. This year, Carmack's boss is the one doing the talking. At Samsung's UNPACKED event at MWC 2016, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg went on stage not only to "sell" the Gear VR, which was made together with Oculus, but to emphasize the connection between Facebook and this new VR hype.

Hands-on with the (potentially doomed) HP Elite x3

Is HP inspired, doomed, or just a glutton for punishment? The company is diving back into the smartphone arena, but it's not taking the obvious route.
