    Polaroid SC1630 Android cameraphone pictures and hands-on

    By 11 January 2012

    The Polaroid SC1630 Smart Camera is a curious creature. We never thought we'd start using the world "cameraphone" again, but there's simply no other way to describe it. The reality of going hands-on with it is that it's a pretty poor camera and a pretty...

    By 11 January 2012

    You'd be forgiven for thinking that the Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR was a DSLR camera. It's not, but it's big, black, has a 3-inch LCD screen and more buttons and controls on it than, well, than most snappers you'll see. Designed to replace the HS20EXR,...

    While the Fujiflim X-Pro1 may have stolen the stand at CES 2012, the limited edition Fujifilm X100 Black certainly looks a classy little number all of its own. Virtually identical to the hugely successful X100 from 2011, the Black edition does pretty...

    CES 2012 Ultrabook counter: the score so far ... 9

    By 11 January 2012

    Last year it was all about tablets, but the theme of CES 2012 is very much Ultrabooks. Whether you think it's just an excuse to give laptops some kind of sexy appeal or you're mad for these high powered, slimline style machines is irrelevant. That fact...

    The 2012 TV line up from LG isn't just about screen technology. One of the most interesting things that the company is up to in the AV space is in developing how we might want to control our sets from now on. Like Samsung, LG is now all about gesture,...

    It was only back at the end of October 2011 that Canonical's founder, Mark Shuttleworth, outlined his plans to stretch the Ubuntu ecosystem out beyond just computers and onto screens everywhere. We've already seen this in action on mobile phones with...

    By 10 January 2012

    The new Series 9, the Samsung Series 9 900X3B, is not something that the Korean giant has chosen to label an Ultrabook. Specs-wise it is one, but the only conclusion we can draw is that is that "ultra" doesn't cover it. It's better than that. Rather like...

    The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga is a well put together piece of kit and definitely the strangest Ultrabook to arrive on the scene so far. It's a 13.3-inch multi-mode laptop which introduces an interesting design idea supposed to optimise the user experience...

    By 10 January 2012

    It may not sound like the sexiest machine on Pocket-lint's pages but, if the price is right, the Panasonic Lumix S5 camera makes for a very tidy point and press package. With curved edges and a choice of three colours, the S5 is as much about looks as...

    Canon has brought a little Wi-Fi joy to its entry-level range of HD camcorders with the creation of the Canon Legria HF R-Series. At the heart of the action is a 3.2-megapixel Full HD CMOS image sensor and the DIGIC DV III processor which can help add...

    By 9 January 2012

    Samsung has stolen the title of the thinnest laptop in the planet from Acer Aspire S5 by revamping the Series 9 premium laptop at CES 2012. The new Series 9, the Samsung Series 9 900X3B, measures just 14.9mm thick at the thickest and 1.59kg, if you go...

    LG has unveiled its Ultra Definition 3D TV at CES 2012 which the company claims is the world's largest 4K2K set around in the added dimension. At 84 inches, it's actually smaller than Sharp's 8K4K monster from IFA and features a lower pixel count (with...

    While the main focus of the Acer press conference at CES 2012 was the thinnest laptop in the world that is the Acer Aspire S5, it shouldn't go without note that the Taiwanese computer maker came up with two other perfectly good Ultrabooks at the same...

    By 29 December 2011

    Some games are just a little frustrating on mobile devices. The controls are rarely perfect, the action not quite as big as it needs to be and both the physics and the graphics just a bit of a let down. In fact, it often comes of something of an annoyance...
