    Nintendo 3DS XL pictures and hands-on

    By 6 July 2012

    A super-sized version of the Nintendo 3DS was touted just before the start of E3 in June, but the Japanese videogames firm clearly decided to let the Wii U be its star turn at that particular show. Instead, it waited almost a month before confirming that...

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 review

    By 3 May 2012

    Two lenses and two sensors, haven’t we seen this somewhere before? Panasonic’s first stereoscopic pocket camera in the Lumix DMC-3D1 is taking on the Fujifilm Finepix W3 (and W1) before it. Capable of not only 3D stills like its rival, but also 3D...

    Prometheus eyes-on... Preview of 13 minutes of glorious 3D footage

    By 10 April 2012

    Ridley Scott's sort-of prequel to Alien, Prometheus, is coming to UK cinemas on 1 June, and Pocket-lint was invited to be one of the first outside of 20th Century Fox itself to see actual footage from the movie. Not the trailer. Not small clips shown...

    Toshiba Satellite P855 pictures and hands-on

    By 7 March 2012

    Toshiba has previously restricted its glasses-less 3D screen technology to its high-end gaming laptops, the Qosmio range. Now the same proprietary tech has been bled down the company's product line, appearing in a mass-consumer Satellite notebook for...

    By 26 February 2012

    LG continues to invest in 3D phones with the launch of the follow up to the LG Optimus 3D - the LG Optimus 3D Max - and we've already managed to bag a hands-on with the new phone at a behind-closed-doors event at Mobile World Congress. First impressions,...

    LG 55LW980T review

    By 18 November 2011

    We loved the LG 47LX9900 for its design and 2D picture quality. We also really liked the LG Cinema 3D 47LW550T when it comes to watching 3D movies, so could a television that merges the two together be the best TV LG has ever made? We're about to find...

    Toshiba 47VL863 review

    By 17 November 2011

    Toshiba deserves its reputation as a click-teaser. SED, Cell TV, Full-array LED: all mouth-watering TV technologies that it’s promised that have come to nought. But there is hope. This year the company appears determined to be cutting-edge and not just...

    Sony KDL-40HX723 review

    By 14 November 2011

    Sony TVs are a bit like Star Trek movies. They alternate between good and woeful for no apparent reason. But while the decent Trek flicks are relatively easy to predict - stick with the even-numbered outings and you won’t go far wrong - avoiding the...

    Toshiba QOSMIO X770 review

    By 1 November 2011

    Toshiba's QOSMIO X770 is both big and clever, although it's the size, weight and design that strike you first.   Under the textured two-tone case, this is a behemoth of a gaming and multimedia laptop: 17.3" 1080p HD active 3D screen, Sandy Bridge Core...

    Sony KDL-55HX823 3DTV review

    By 21 September 2011

    This isn't Sony’s most expensive screen, that dubious honour goes to its KDL-55HX923. But don't bother with that because the HX823 series’ luscious 3D, sparkling 2D and a web video hub that’s genuinely engaging will blow your socks off. A Freeview...
