HTC Windows Phone with 16-megapixel camera tipped [Video]

HTC hasn't been short on new smartphone launches this year - the HTC Sensation most recently, the HTC EVO 3D last month, and then five new phones back at MWC 2011 - but Windows Phone has been conspicuous by its absence. According to a new, leaked promo caught by Pocketnow, however, HTC is readying a beastly photo-focused Windows Phone handset with a whopping 16-megapixel camera.

Hannspree SN10T1 tablet hands-on [Video]

Hannspree's Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet, the SN10T3, isn't expected to hit the market until Q3 2011, but the company had the freshly-released SN10T1 on show here at IFA 2011 today. Based around a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen and NVIDIA's Tegra 2 processor, the slate may run Android 2.2 Froyo but it's well hidden under a custom UI. Still, that decision has left the SN10T1 missing a few key features which may take some of the shine off of its low price tag.

Samsung may have had 3D video-on-demand to announce at IFA 2011 this morning, but the company was also demonstrating its smart TV streaming system that can squirt a live video feed from a D7000 or D8000 series HDTV to one of the company's Android-based devices.

Nokia X7 hands-on [Video]

The thought of Nokia and gaming may bring to mind terrible memories of taco-shaped N-Gage, but the X7 looks set to change some opinions. Surprisingly waifish in the hand, with distinct tapering edges leaving it feeling like a crisp metal slice, the angular chassis (and Symbian OS) will probably polarize opinion nonetheless.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer vs Acer Iconia Tab A500

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer vs Acer Iconia Tab A500

Motorola's XOOM had its chance to sweep the Android 3.0 Honeycomb market; now the low-cost slates from Taiwan are here to steal its thunder. Acer has priced its 10.1-inch Iconia Tab A500 tablet this morning at an iPad 2 undercutting $450, while the eagle-eyed spotted ASUS' Eee Pad Transformer at a mere $400 last month before the listings were pulled. Both are expected to hit the US later in April, but how do they compare?

Eco-friendly Superbus gets UAE trial [Video]

The allure of public transport is so often undermined by the scent of urine and dawdling performance, but the only people soiling themselves in the Dutch-made Superbus are likely to be those over-excited by its eco-friendly turn of electric speed. Capable of accommodating up to 23 passengers and still hitting 155kph (96mph), the lengthy carbon fiber and fiberglass vehicle is headed to Dubai next month.
