Sony introduces next-gen Xperia Z4 Tablet at MWC 2015

xperia-z4-tablet

It’s almost hard to believe this time one year ago at MWC 2014 the Xperia Z2 Tablet was announced. Sony’s bi-yearly smartphone flagship updates makes some of their devices seem like distant memories, but alas it’s actually been a proper year since Sony announced a 10-inch tablet. Oddly, this one jumps straight to the Z4 Tablet moniker — presumably in efforts to keep up with the rest of Sony’s Xperia lineup.

In many ways the Xperia Z4 Tablet is a noticeable upgrade from its predecessor — unlike some Xperia smartphones, which have been criticised of late for being almost too incremental of an update.

HTC unveils One M9 at MWC 2015

htc-one-m9-full

Not to be outdone by one of their immediate competitors, HTC have too announced their latest flasgship One M9 in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress 2015 and from the exterior you’ll be forgiven for thinking it’s all but identical to its predecessor.

To call the One M9’s design a complete makeover would be inaccurate. It’s hardly even a facelift. Instead HTC took what the tech world and general public knew and loved about the One (M8) aluminium unibody design and refined in a number of key ways.


Samsung announces Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge at MWC 2015

galaxy-s6-s6-edge

With Mobile World Congress having kicked off this morning, Samsung had a lot to be proud of when it announced its next generation Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.

From just so much as looking at the S6 compared to the S5 it’s clear that design was Samsung’s primary motivator and the Korean group have certainly achieved this and we suspect the S6 won’t be the butt of every joke out there this time round.
