Five for the weekend: From FIFA 12 to the Galaxy S II HD LTE!

It’s been a pretty exciting week for announcements, with some great gadgets and some equally impressive games in the news. From the latest iteration of FIFA, to a smartphone with the sharpest screen yet, there’s a lot to be excited about. Join us after the cut to see the five gadgets we’re the most excited about.

We’ve been looking back through the week’s news, and there are loads of games and gadgets that stand out. We’ve rounded up our favourite five below.

HTC Explorer Not everybody wants a huge smartphone, which is where the HTC Explorer comes in. This compact 3.2-inch handset should offer excellent value for money when it goes on sale later this year, yet you’ll also get the full Android experience. With a smaller than average display, it should also boast an impressive battery life.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Samsung’s mid-sized tablet is set to go on sale in October, and we can’t wait! This compact device looks like being the ideal form factor for a life on the road, proving small and light enough to take with you wherever you go, while offering a stunning display that’s still big enough for web pages or movies.

FIFA 12 Out of all the announcements this week, it’s the launch of FIFA 12 that has us the most excited, and it’s everything we hoped it would be. Much more than just a re-skin, FIFA 12 offers entirely new gameplay, with different ways of tackling and different responses from players. It’ll take some getting used to, but it’s a lot more satisfying.

Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE It’s been a good week for Samsung, with the South Korean company announcing the launch of its brand new Galaxy S model – the HD LTE. This high-end smartphone features the best display yet, measuring in at 4.5 inches and offering a staggeringly sharp 1280×800-pixel resolution. It’s also packed with features.

Bang and Olufsen Form 2 headphones This week marks the 25th anniversary of Bang and Olufsen’s Form 2 headphones, and the retro cans are still on sale. To celebrate, B&O have launched a host of new colours for the Form 2, making these retro headphones a more stylish option than ever before
