Nokia Lumia 1020: 41-megapixel monster phone unleashed!
Nokia’s 41-megapixel Windows Phone 8 blower was the worst-kept secret in tech, and now it’s official. It looks a lot like standard Lumia fare, until you turn it around and see that 41-megapixel legend emblazoned on the back. That’s the same megapixel count as the company’s previous 808 PureView. With this and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, is the compact camera dead?
BlackBerry A10 leaks: Biggest BlackBerry ever!
BlackBerry has a new phone up its sleeve, though it’ll have to be a pretty wide sleeve to fit this 5-incher in. The A10 – seen here in a leaked snap – is the biggest blower BlackBerry has ever made. But what’s with the screen resolution? It’s reportedly stuck at a paltry 720p, which will pale in the face of the 1080p displays seen on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4. Must do better, BlackBerry.
Microsoft teases even more Surface tablets are on the way!
Microsoft has let slip that more Surface tablets are coming next year. Updates to both the Surface RT and Surface Pro will be with us soon, the Redmond-based company accidentally revealed in a presentation. So what can we expect? Will they be powered by Intel’s Haswell processors? Will they run Windows 8.1? We’ll just have to wait to find out.
You can play PS4 games on any console!
That’s right, games for Sony’s next console can be played on any PS4. This is thanks to the company’s ‘play as you download feature’. So if you’re round a friend’s house, you can access your full digital library of titles from their console, as long as they have an internet connection, that is. Bonus. Microsoft really has some catching up to do with its Xbox One.
LG’s next-gen G2 gets leaked again!
This week, LG sent out an invite to the launch of its G2 handset, but the mobile has already leaked a couple of times. The latest snap shows it looking a lot like the Nexus 4, with the same rounded corners. And there are no buttons on the side, with the volume controls on the back under the camera. This is one seriously slim mobile, we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
