    By 7 September 2011

    Lenovo surprised us with the IdeaPad U300s, its Ultrabook that guns firmly at consumers. But we were also pleasantly surprised by the IdeaPad K1, its take on the Honeycomb tablet. It's been doing the rounds for the last few months and we managed to catch...

    By 6 September 2011

    We first saw Sony’s head mounted display at CES 2011. Fast forward 8 months at it looks like this crazy device is coming to market. We caught up with it again at IFA 2011 to immerse ourselves in its experience. The design from the exterior is certainly...

    Owle Bubo: The ultimate video cameraman case for the iPhone 4, we go hands-on

    By 6 September 2011

    We've talked about the Owle Bubo before but, despite it sounding like a raptor infected with the plague, we were still thrilled to get our hands on this iPhone 4 videophile accessory when it flew our way at IFA 2011. Made of what feels like solid black...

    If you're searching for a phone that's high-performance at an economic price-point and happens to have a full QWERTY keyboard, then according to Samsung, this is the mobile for you. Meet the Samsung Galaxy M Pro; what the promise seems to translate to...

    By 5 September 2011

    W stands for Wonder if you're talking the Samsung Galaxy talk, and the thing that Pocket-lint wondered, when we spent our hands-on time with it at IFA 2011, is whether people would buy it instead of the R or not at all. A first glance at the spec sheet,...

    By 5 September 2011

    In Samsung's latest mobile phone nomenclature, R stands for Royal and is second only to the S or Super range. So, to take a closer look at the Samsung Galaxy R - the first R of its kind - when compared to the Samsung Galaxy S II, was a good insight into...

    "If a phone's worth doing properly, it's worth doing in white" is probably as valid a start to this hands-on article as "anything Apple can do Samsung can do too", but we'll leave the EU patent lawyers to work out that one. In case you've been living...

    Jarre AeroDream One hits iPod dock highs

    By 5 September 2011

    If you were alive in the 80s, you almost certainly have a Jean Michel Jarre album lying around your house. Lately, Jean Michel Jarre has turned his musical hands to another domestic certainty: the iPod dock. Of course this being Jean Michel Jarre, things...

    By 5 September 2011

    So, it turns out that there was no misprint on the press release. Samsung Galaxy S II LTE is, in fact, both bigger and better than the plain old Samsung Galaxy S II. Placing our trusty, old, first flush SII next to the newcomer at IFA 2011, it all became...

    Android Sony Walkman prototype gets IFA showing

    By 5 September 2011

    Sony showed off a Walkman Mobile Entertainment Player on its stand at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin. It was quickly pointed out to us that this was a prototype, but we can see where Sony are headed with this one, and that’s straight up...

    By 5 September 2011

    We knew that ViewSonic was going to pull the covers off another 7-inch tablet at IFA 2011 and that it was going to be a budget device. Markedly different from their slick ViewPad 7x, the 7e is fairly chunky, features a resistive display and runs Gingerbread,...

    Samsung hasn’t been scared to try different things with their compact camera range, and having rolled out a number of models with forward-facing screens, this is a slightly different proposition.  The MV800 (standing for MultiView) offers a hinged...

    Loewe Sounds out three new speaker options - we go hands-on

    By 3 September 2011

    Loewe was over in IFA in full force, with a booth that resembled the Korova Milk Bar form A Clockwork Orange. Understated, it was not - but what else would you expect, from a company that specialises in cool, at an expo in its home town? Hidden amongst...

    By 3 September 2011

    When is a new phone not really a new phone? When it's just had a software update on an older model, that's when - as is the case with the Sony Ericsson neo V, which we found on show in Berlin at IFA. A quick run through of the spec sheet actually shows...

    Sony SRS-BTV25 Death Star speaker hands-on

    By 3 September 2011

    Let's clear one thing up first. The Sony SRS-BTV25 isn't Star Wars affiliated in any way. And it's not called the Death Star at all. That's a name that Pocket-lint has coined for the speaker. But, how can Sony release a gadget, that looks like this, and...

    With such as aggressive stance against the active shutter 3D system, it came as no surprise when LG’s much-touted flagship flat screen TV was fitted with the brand’s Cinema 3D tech. The IFA announcement sees LG producing only plasma-flavoured active...

    Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S hands-on

    By 2 September 2011

    We loved the design of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, we loved the 4.2-inch 854 x 480 display, we loved the 8.1-megapixel camera and we even found that Sony Ericsson’s user interface wasn’t too bad. But what we were a little suspect of was the processing...

    The TomTom iPad app is fairly fantastic. We know this at Pocket-lint because we were lucky enough to get our hands on the software at IFA 2011. Naturally, we can't tell you how good it is at getting you from A to B, which is why we use the word "fairly",...

    Fujifilm has surprised the IFA 2011 party by rocking up with a mid-range version of its X100 rightly named the Fujifilm X10. And, as dedicated camera freaks at Pocket-lint, we wasted no time in getting our hands on the little devil. The first thing you...

    Lenovo doesn't have the most recognisable consumer PC business, but the tone of its press conference at IFA 2011 in Berlin, Germany, made it clear that the company has serious aims at cracking the consumer market. This will likely be helped by its new...

    The Samsung NX200 is a serious looking compact system camera, arriving with an impressive run of specs. A 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor lies at its heart, rivalling the newly announced Sony NEX-7. Of course it doesn’t offer you a viewfinder like Sony’s...

    The Philips GoGear Connect 3 is more the tiny tablet than an MP3-player. Announced by the Royal Dutch at IFA 2011, it's the next generation in the company's Android-running personal devices and this time it comes with Gingerbread with the thinnest of...
