AT&T scores PadFone X mini exclusive, available Oct 24

Fulfilling a promise it made, ASUS is bringing yet another of its PadFone smartphone/tablet hybrids to the US market. And just like with its namesake, the PadFone X, it is again arriving exclusively to AT&T. The PadFone X mini offers that same flexibility of a 2-in-1 device, this time in a smaller and more handy size, without losing the advantages of AT&T's 4G LTE network. Of course, it is considerably less equipped than its older and bigger sibling, but the rather low no contract price does make up for it.

BlackBerry Classic gets detailed in spec and photos leak

With the BlackBerry Passport, the BlackBerry "Prestige" Porsche Design P'9983, and the new BlackBerry Blend software, most of the company's roadmap for the last quarter of 2014 have come to pass.

While that day might be coming soon, we will have to settle for unofficial information, like this latest batch of features and images that paint an almost complete picture of the smartphone.

Nexus 6 from AT&T accidentally revealed

Before your heart starts to skip a beat, know that this might have just been an innocent error. Either someone pressed the "Publish" button too soon or actually messed up in typing in details. Either way, those errors are leading to some hope that AT&T might have some space reserved for the Nexus 6, possibly immediately after its official launch even. If true, this would make the Nexus 6 the first ever Nexus smartphone that will be sold directly by the carrier.

Nokia Lumia 530 Review

Nokia Lumia 530 Review

When we posted our review of the Nokia Lumia 520 and subsequently the Lumia 521 for T-Mobile, it wasn’t yet entirely clear the impact they’d have on the Windows Phone universe. Now that we know that Nokia’s efforts allowed it to dominate the Windows Phone universe, we can see how important it is that the brand was able to create a generally OK phone as an extremely low-cost deliverable. They’re trying to do this again with the Nokia Lumia 530 around the world - today we have a peek at the T-Mobile USA edition.

August Smart Lock heads to Apple Stores officially

The team behind Apple’s exclusivity in all things has done an amazing job of making it feel like whatever they OK is golden.

Now that they’ve got approval to enter the Apple Store physically, they’ll be trusted implicitly. Once you're in the store, people trust that Apple will back up any claim you make. It's time for some Apple-backed home automation.

Ryobi Phone Works combines your smartphone and power tools

Ryobi Phone Works combines your smartphone and power tools

Your DIY home repairs don't have to be archaic, at least as far as Ryobi is concerned. The power tools manufacturer has released a new line of "smart" power tools designed to work with your smartphone and a related app, which when combined give the tools additional functionality they wouldn't have on their own. This allows the tools themselves to be priced cheaper than they would if each provided the extra tech as integrated features, and gives you an excuse to pull out your phone while working.
