The 2013 Mac Pro is here – and it’s beautiful

Has there been a desktop computing reinvention quite like the 2013 Mac Pro? At the top of the year Apple's pro-Mac looked like it was facing the axe altogether, an overlooked relic compared to the slick and increasingly powerful iMac. As 2013 draws to a close, however, the new Mac Pro is arguably the most exciting new model to join Apple's range; the epitome of "Think different" as what exactly makes a workstation is called into question. Demand for the new Mac has already seen ship times for new orders stretch out into February 2014 at the earliest, but we've got our hands on the Mac Pro already to see how it holds up.

T-Mobile myTouch and myTouch Q hands-on and unboxing

This week we've got our hands on the newest set of myTouch phones from T-Mobile, both of them having essentially the same specifications and being made by Huawei. While there are some LG devices out there that have essentially the same names as these two devices, rest assured: these are made by Huawei and will be popping up at T-Mobile very, very soon. Now that we're clear on that, let's have at it: both devices work with Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread with Huawei's own unique user interface, both have a 4-inch display at 480 x 800 pixel resolution, and both work with 5 megapixel cameras on the back.

Garnet Red Samsung Galaxy S III Hands-on

Garnet Red Samsung Galaxy S III Hands-on

This week we've gotten our hands on the rarest of the Samsung Galaxy S III models in the wild, that being the AT&T Garnet Red. The differences between this device and the white or blue versions of the device carried by AT&T are few and far between, with the red front, back, and home button shining uniquely in the palm of your hand. What you've got here is a sort of pattern extremely similar to what we've seen with the blue version of the device, just Garnet Red in this case. This device has a 4.8-inch 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich onboard, and AT&T 4G LTE connectivity in select locations across the USA.

mu Folding USB Plug hands-on

The Folding Plug concept of 2009 was a design we always hoped would reach production, and while it took a few years, the first freshly-renamed mu plugs are landing with owners, SlashGear included. The handiwork of designer Min Kyo Choi, the premise is straightforward: do away with the majority of the bulk of a UK three-pin plug, creating something both readily portable and flexible. Check out our hands-on video after the cut.

Sony’s PS Vita is here

Sony's PS Vita isn't expected to hit stores properly in the US and UK until February 22, but a PS Vita 3G has arrived early on SlashGear's doorstep and we've never been known for our patience. Vitally important as Sony's big push-back against the rise of smartphone and tablet gaming, the PS Vita represents another strand of the company's "four-screen" strategy and an attempt to fight of iOS and Android and their respective catalogs of thousands of casual games.
